Good morning, all!  Another brutally hot and humid day.  Very pretty from my office window, but going outdoors feels like walking into a sauna.  Good day for some office work.
Gord, have been wondering if your prospective buyers have made an offer on your home yet.
Drew, how is your mom doing?
James, the home you visited sounds very similar, in terms of technology, to the home of my friends Kelley and Yvonne in Austin, TX, where everything in the house is beyond state-of-the-art.  The windows even darken themselves automatically in the evening, so that no window coverings are required.  It's quite remarkable.  Even more remarkable is that these "kids" in Austin used to be employees of the software company of which my husband and I were owners (along with two other couples).   We hired Kelley when he was a 19-yr-old, long-haired, hard rock guitar-playing, motorcycle-riding hippie kid.  He turned out to be a brilliant computer programmer, who helped us take the company to places we never could have gone without him. 
Ok, back to reality!  Time to get on with the day!

Instead of simply deleting this whole topic can I suggest that Mel CLOSES it.
(tick the 'Close' box in the Topic Admin pop-up). and then starts 'Olympian Banter' (or whatever).
In 30 days it will be time to close that and come up with some new 'banter' topic.
At that time we can decide to delete this long running topic.


I fail to see a Close  .. just Lock?

Hello, hello, hello
We are expecting two offers on Monday. Lots to think about.

U joint came from front drive shaft of Ford Pickup. It is resting on the shields and out of harms way. Taking it into town in a few minutes.

 I am done posting all the pictures that I kept from the 3300 that I took on my trip.  I know that I'm nowhere near a record because that took me 43 days to accumulate, and there are still 2328 total pictures left.  I remember from way back that James took well over 5000 in something like a week while in the States.   FWIW, for the last reminder ( I won't bring it up again) anyone interested open, use my, and "bucket" for the PW.  

You will see the following folders which I tried to make somewhat explanatory, so one can pick and choose what they are interested in.  The one museum that I am not sure where it is best put is the Hwy-66 museum and town.  It is physically located in Elk City, Oklahoma, one of the few places left that is just off I-44, and maintains the 66 number for their short main street.  It could go in the Hwy Travel folder but it is in Museums-General.   For you non-USA types, Hwy-66 was the early (Pre-WWII) Chicago to Los Angeles Hwy before our Interstate system was built, and what is left of it still maintains an aura for old-timers and hot rodders. 

the Hwy Travel folder is mostly just pictures I shot out the window basically showing how the countryside changes, including one big tour of Albuquerque New Mexico.  The album numbers indicate the order ion which the pictures were taken, but one long list of 43 I decided cause a LOT of scrolling to see them all, which is why I changed to the Topic oriented mode.
