Re: Why Taking the Train is Better than Flying

The photo is, of course, not of the Seattle-to-Portland run. Looks more like central California coast. How hard is it to get a relevant picture?

Re: What Kind of Fuel Am I?

I wondered about the additives and such, but the issue is probably moot since the tribe likely cannot get anything but fuel sold throughout the state.

Re: What Kind of Fuel Am I?

Last week at the local Shell gas station regular was $6.29/gal and today it's $5.79. Recent road trip, and I-5 and 50 were pretty standard at around $6, but drove past a tribal casino complex that had their own station and they were $4.59. Presumably, they are selling the same gas as everyone else,...

Re: Elvis!

One of the "treasures" in the family attic were a collection of Elvis plates. A lot of classic vinyl albums and some boxes full of photos made it worthwhile to wade through the dust and cobwebs.

A load of cunk

If you are looking for some fun watching, Cunk on Earth is a mockumentary that will keep you laughing at the satire. It is on Netflix. Diane Morgan brings out her Philomena Cunk character and plays the clueless millennial to perfection.

Re: Alec Baldwin Kills Cinematographer

Prosecution released information to support their charge of involuntary manslaughter. Even with the allegations of many instances of extremely reckless behavior, it still seems like an uphill battle for the prosecution.
