Awesome. Such a great voice, too, whether he’s mocking Baldrick or making speeches like this.

Hey dualstow, check your phone. On mine, the "Racial Justice" section no longer appears!
Still on the ipad, unfortunately. Racial justice. :-/
At least the internet speed here at my folks’ place is a blazing 145/133. I can download racial justice stories at the speed of light.

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Mostly a tangent, but here's another example of conventional wisdom being totally wrong: people think they're recycling when they put their plastic in the recycling bin. But they're really not. https://www.npr.org/2020/09/11/897692090/how-big-oil-misled-the-public-into-believing-plastic-would-be-re...

Re: Sister Sally Sitting by the Seashore

Getting a bit blustery here tonight. We'll see how it goes. I do so love raw power. Mark Sally.png Say what? We were sitting on the back porch watching 90 day fiance right in the middle of this last night. All I remember is it was raining. Things are really heating up in the Caribbean though - 5 na...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

When you guys say 100/100 and 88/68 are you talking about upstream/downstream speeds? download first, as kriegs said. If so, how are your guys' upload speeds so fast? :o I’ll have to do a test on the desktop, which is hardwired (ethernet cable). We have Verizon FiOS which uses fiber optic cable (U....
