RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

For some reason I feel a lot better mentally when I safely get an hour's sun daily. It was too easy for me to stay cooped up indoors. Now weather and safety permitting, I spend an hour in full sun. I think you're on the right track, as UV rays are known to be a virus killer. If your climate is hot, as it is here in Tucson, I understand heat is also a virus enemy.

RE: Need new GPS

Garmin Garmin Garmin X2. Been using Garmin for years with little complaint. Only once or twice it put the destination on the wrong side of the street, but still in the correct area. Just keep it updated.

RE: New Truck 4x4 or 4x2 ??

My tow vehicle was a Dodge Ram 3500, 4WD, SRW, 6-speed stick tranny. I rarely needed 4WD while driving, but found it handy when maneuvering my fiver into a spot. The much lower gear reduction in 4WD made it much easier on the clutch. At least that was my experience. I don't know if this procedure would also benefit a vehicle with an automatic tranny, but I think it couldn't hurt.

RE: Android vs Apple

Both my phone and tablet are android. Previously, my tablet was an iPad. Unfortunately, it was stolen last year together with my vehicle. While I like my android phone (Samsung Galaxy J3, and find the android tablet to be OK, I do prefer the iPad and iOS system. Trouble with Apple products, is I think they're just too expensive.(my original iPad had cost me about $500, years ago). The android tablet (RCA Viking Pro) was only about $80, compared to the hundreds an iPad would have cost. That being said, I still feel the Apple product was better, for reasons I won't get into here. If my RCA tablet becomes defective, I'd probably opt for the iPad again, regardless of the exrra cost.

RE: New Cell Phone Choice

I have a Samsung Galaxy J3 on Verizon. The cost was well under $200. I use the hotspot feature quite a bit, and it works well.I think in your case, since you said you wanted a better camera, a higher upgrade may be more to your liking. The camera on my model works well enough for me. Verizon has been giving me an extra 15GB of data each month since the pandemic hit. :)

RE: Verizon's free 15gig

Verizon is giving me another 15GB data until June, on top of the 15GB they already gave my for April. I hope it keeps up, as I often use my phone as a mobile hotspot when my Internet connection starts having hiccups. :)

RE: Still no Stimulus Payment

Got mine early this morning. Bank messaged me that direct deposit was made about 2 AM. $1200. EDIT: Sorry, this is a double post. Guess I was excited. ;)

RE: Still no Stimulus Payment

Got an email from my bank early this morning that a direct deposit was received. Sure enough, my $1200 stimulus had been deposited at about 2 AM. :C

RE: Still no Stimulus Payment

Out of curiosity, I tried submitting an online form to track my payment. However, there was a glitch. After completing the form, I was supposed to verify my email address. This I did, but it wasn't verified and therefore I couldn't submit the form. I tried about 5 times in a row, and still nothing. I understand that this is a big undertaking for the gov't, and they're trying their best. Most people I know have already received their payment, but they were filers for previous tax years. I'm not.

RE: Verizon's free 15gig

Verizon's plan with unlimited data would cost $70/mo, compared to my current $35/mo. I'm not keen on spending more money these days, but since Internet service is important for me, I would opt for the higher plan. If you are looking at the Prepaid Verizon Unlimited plan, it does not allow its use as a mobile hotspot. Thanks for the heads up, Tom, but I called the local Verizon store and was told the $70 plan does include use as a hot spot. Of course, I will check further before committing.

Thanks for info, Jetboater. Hopefully I'll see mine in less than a week. :C

RE: What meal to cook next

You guys are getting me with the lamb. i love it. wife not so much and its expensive and not that great at the stores i have available right now. I remember while growing up in NY, my mother's method of roasting leg of lamb. She would make knife cuts all over the leg and stick garlic in each cut. I liked eating it with mint jelly,but don't know if it's still available.

RE: The normal things we miss?

I know I'm beginning to hate drive thru food. I like my food hot,not just warm by the time I get home. But have been grilling a lot more. Bacon on the grill in the morning is driving the neighbors nuts though. Haircuts never a problem since '82 when got out of the service. Just let it grow and tie in a pony tail. There's a United Supermarket about 2 miles away which serves a nice selection of hot food, to be taken out, of course. When I get it home it's still fairly hot. Excellent food and generous portions for about $7, which includes meat plus 2 sides plus biscuit or cornbread. Much better than fast food for only a couple of $$ more.

RE: The normal things we miss?

I could use a barber. I usually patronize Supercuts. They've always done a good job for me. :)

RE: Weather. Nasty Weather. The kind of Weather you don't want.

Glad everything turned out well for you. I'd worry being in an RV during a tornado warning. I can see me and my RV flying up in the sky, like Dorothy and Toto in the Wizard of Oz. Several years ago, I experienced some powerful winds from an approaching thunderstorm at an RV park overlooking Albuquerque. The rear of my fifth wheel was facing towards the blast of wind. It just about ripped off the bathroom vent cover. The force was so great, I couldn't close it fully. So I grabbed a coat hanger, unraveled it, formed a hook and stuck it through the screen (knowing I could repair it later), grabbed the lifting mechanism for the cover and held on until I could finally close the vent. The next day, I purchased 2 vent cover protectors and installed them myself. Fortunately there was a Camping World about a mile away.:C
