    I understand there's not statute of limitations for tax fraud. Which is what NYC is looking at. (Now that they have Cohen's testimony and investigative reports from the NY Times and Washington Post, it should be easier. However, it should...

    I'd wear a mask with a face shield, because air currents could carry droplets under the shield and into your face....

    The usual analogy is that we're catching a bus, not getting married. We want to get closer to our goal, and that frequently requires voting for the lesser of two evils. Biden is *much* less evil than Trmp, and his...

    I learned on a manual typer also (ancient Royal at home, Underwoods at school). I still remember how to do it, but I adjusted to keyboards pretty quickly. (My first typer was an Olivetti with a type element - sliding...

    FWIW, it hit 40C in my neighborhood today, and the current dew point is about 2C (up from -2). The high humidity is at night, when it's maybe 70% - during the day it gets down to 15 to 20%....

    I understand it's Lachlan. (James is the more liberal of the two.)...

    My upper teeth ache when I get colds - the previous dentist said that sinus pressure affects the nerve 8right there*....

    he was in the hospital for a *month* with the virus. The Tulsa rally was in mid-June....

    Mine check your temperature before letting you in. Some have questionnaires on symptoms. (So far I'm okay.) But I'm only going in when I have to - some things can't be done by phone....

    I've read that it's a vascular disease transmitted through aerial droplets - but that was last month and the theories may have changed since then....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    I was in my 20s before we got a non-abstract painting in the house. My brain got trained really early. (My grandparents had some abstract art also.)...

    I drive a hybrid, and I fill it up at about a quarter-tank left. That gives me a range of about 300 miles in city driving, and closer to 400 on the highway. Stop-and-go traffic tends to drain the rechargeable...

    We got online training that was mixed video and slides. The tests were slides. (I retired several years ago, so I don't know what the training is like now. Particularly the driver training, which had been a 2-hour refresher course...

    Some areas have signs posted telling you what's at the next exit. A lot of travel-dependent businesses will have signs telling you where you can find one, even if it's miles ahead. (My long-distance driving tends to be on routes...

    My best wishes to your wife - I'm two years past surgery, and the hormone-blocker brought back hot flashes. (But the pathology reports were all good, and all the follow-up tests are good.)...

    Consider: Texas may not have high-school (American) football this fall. It's nearly a religion there. (See also: "Friday Night Lights".)...

    In California, they managed the grasslands-with-oaks - acorns were a food, and they knew how to process them to get the tannin out. That management also allowed for smaller game, as well as deer....

    The earlier arrivals from Germany mostly "disappeared" - they kept the family names, or translated them, and not much else from the old country was kept....

    They quit about 11pm in my neighborhood, after starting at 8:30 or so. Mostly noisy stuff AFAICT. (It's been going on, in much smaller amounts, for the last 6 weeks. I hope they've run out of pyrotechnics.) Fortunately there weren't...

    Those #$%^&*()s planting irrigated orchards in the SW San Joaquin Valley should have their permits yanked. That's near-desert land without irrigation, and it's going to be dead land from the salt buildup. Also, they're trying to pull water from the...

    As a kid, we went camping in the Yosemite back country a couple of times. About a day from home to the jumping-off point, where we left the cars. The second day we did the hike in to the camping...

    In some places in the US the landfills will shred "yard waste" and turn it into mulch, which they'll give away so it doesn't take up so much space....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    The Spanish missionaries walking north from somewhere in Mexico (probably Monterrey or Guadalajara) into northern California did about 25 miles a day - more on flat land, less in the central coast, which is hilly. It's well over 500 miles...

    Actually, that bible was right side up. You can tell by the ribbon bookmark. (Some shots showed the edge of the spine, where you could just see the title and version.)...

    My father had a pick where the pointy end got so worn down from digging in the local soil (adobe with gravel-to-small-rocks) that he turned it into an adze. But the fruit trees and grape vines loved it: it held...

    Most of the BLM protesters wore masks. There's no noticeable spike from those. But the "opening up" stuff - lots of cases. And the churches that insisted that they had the right to have indoor services with singing - lots...

    Video doesn't forget. Pay attention to the Lincoln Project, the Meidas people, and VoteVets. They'll be using those. And they have a turnaround time in *hours*....

    A year or so back, some contractors working on a house elsewhere in Southern California broke a gas pipe (which should have been marked beforehand, but they probably didn't bother with that step). The company sent someone out to check...

    I understand that they used river and sea travel as much as possible, before railroads. (Canals, too. Growing up, we got to sing "Erie Canal", about boats that were towed by mules.)...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    I've seen people "wearing masks" in stores so that their noses are exposed. And at least one woman, in a pharmacy, who'd pulled it all the way down. (I wish stores would enforce their "no mask, no service" rules.)...
