    I try to avoid giving numbers or anything else important to a rep on the phone. Better to do it online where you can double check the numbers. Especially since my wife says my voice is hard to hear (even though she has no problem hearing exactly what I say when I mutter under my breath). Unfortunately I am required to do it by phone if I want to withdraw or roll over from my 401K.

    Good luck... When the wife and I moved back, we looked for nearly two years. Either you get a garage big enough for maybe two bicycles (forget a car or a moto), or like you said; it's some yoga studio nonsense. Or you move out to the 'burbs. We ended up buying across the river because neither of us works in Portland and the 9% raise was choice.

    I know, nothing new in my rant but.....When a "newbie" who can't apply local, well known landmark names in a trip report, then blabs about (with pictures) a hard to reach locale that has been kept hushed for 35 years I've known about it. In poor snow conditions, it's a place you'll regret being or worse. Here comes the "Jong" show.... Added: not so much that others will now recreate there but it's no place for folks lacking skiing prowess and a healthy dose of avalanche understanding. Doubt that will stop anyone though.

    when music that you owned seems to disappear. And the only way to reacquire it is to pay for it again.

    I've looked at the backups I have, and it's just not there. I know I had it at some point because a few of the songs were on playlists I had set up and the album is on google play music/YT music as "my music" that I uploaded. But I can't find the files anywhere.

    If you bought from google music, can’t you re-download for free? It should be in your online library.

    I didn't buy from Google music, I just (at some point) uploaded to Google Play. I don't know where I bought it from, I may have even bought it in CD form.

    Probably should go in the things that amuse you thread but I'm here. My wife spent the entire morning the other day fixing the VHS. Successfully. We haven't watched a VHS tape or even a DVD in years but there was one old PBS show she wanted to copy to a DVD. And I actually wouldn't mind being able to watch the Ric Burns show about the Donner Party once in a while. First time we watched it the freeway closed for 5 days.

    Illegal Tampering by Diesel Pickup Owners Is Worsening Pollution, E.P.A. Says
    WASHINGTON — The owners and operators of more than half a million diesel pickup trucks have been illegally disabling their vehicles’ emissions control technology over the past decade, allowing excess emissions equivalent to 9 million extra trucks on the road, a new federal report has concluded.

    This first, and then later distribution is exactly why Amazon is kicking everyone's ass. It's so easy to browse, one keystroke, and the next day it's on your doorstep.

    Back when I used to live in the Kootenays, I new guys that would go across the line and buy a near new diesel that could be registered in BC (full emission controls still in place). They'd come home, register it, then head back across to a shop, usually in Idaho I think but maybe eastern WA as well, get the emissions stuff removed, then bring it back home. Even with the exchange at the time, this was cheaper than buying the truck in Canada. Not sure if this is still occurring.

    when people use terms like “playful” and “funshape” to describe skis
    I didn't believe in reincarnation when I was your age either.

    Funshape is dumb.

    I get playful, but to me that means maneuverable, can make a variety of turn shapes, and has some rebound. Which is likely more meaningful than "playful"

    I will whack you right above the boot with a carbon pole if you ever use those terms around me skiing.

    When people have pet words or terms that they’ve decided annoy them, even when they convey meaning and/or are used correctly.
    focus.

    Aluminum works better for shin whacking.

    Perhaps, but for extremely long days of shin whacking I prefer the lighter carbon version.
