RE: Cybertruck has a yoke

Thought the roadster was still in a big loopy orbit around the sun now? Elon's lunar lander is supposed to be based on Starship. Think it has payload capacity enough for a Cyber Truck?

RE: Cybertruck has a yoke

So I just read SpaceX is being awarded the NASA contract to build the lunar landing craft for the Artemis mission. Wonder if CyberTruck is gonna be the the lunar rover vehicle? :B

RE: a good weather radio

Always carried a 110v/battery weather radio in our trailers. Never a reception problem as long as it was positioned in front of a window. Guess we weren't sufficiently removed from civilization. That said, that radio passed on to electronic heaven last year. Replaced it with a Midland 110v/battery model for about 30 or so bucks on Amazon. Works great and will absolutely raise the dead at 4am when the alarm goes off.

RE: Trailer demand and prices

A recent story in the Orlando Sentinel quoted an RVIA spokesman estimating RV sales of 530000 units in 2021; higher than the 430K of 2020 and surpassing the industry record of 500K set in 2017. It's not just RV's. New boat registrations in Florida have jumped 30% in the last year, and even camping equipment such as tents is in high demand.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Weird Yosemite, the injection site bothers me not at all, but muscles and joint, whew? I take arthritis Tylenol but it's not doing much. Oh well, I'm done as is my wife. She wasn't supposed to get her 2nd til today. She rode shotgun with me to CVS yesterday. Went inside, there was no line for shots. Asked the employee handling check-in if the wife could get hers, and she did.

RE: Android Tablet eReader

I have a hundred dollar 8" Android tablet and would like to explore reading electronic books on the cheap. What is a good app and book source Check your community library. For me it was as simple as getting a library card which enabled me to access the the e-book catalog. If you're an Amazon Prime member they offer a 2 or 3 month Kindle unlimited offer, $9.99 a month thereafter. You would just need to download the Kindle app to your device.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Another good news: 75% of those 65 and older have been vaccinated. If herd immunity is indeed at 72%, you can alteady hold a geezers party. You might want to read up on the “vaccine breakthrough” cases in WA before planning any parties, so that you are aware of the risks. The Orlando media have sunk their teeth into the "breakthrough" cases. In their fit of hyperventilation they scarcely mention that ALL vaccines are not 100%. But a doctor interviewed by one station emphasized while the vaccines may not be 100% at preventing infection, of the breakthrough cases reported to the CDC they have been 100% effective in preventing serious illness and death.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

DH fixed chicken soup... it was wonderful! With matzo balls I hope! There's a nearby deli that makes a chicken matzo ball soup so good I believe it could cure anything. :B

RE: Nascar Follies

Texas GearHead: You might be interested to know the view on TV was shrouded in a dust cloud in the turns as well. The bits and pieces I watched left me wondering how fun it was for the drivers between the dust cloud and the sunlight.

RE: Nascar Follies

I tried to watch it, but just wasn't getting into it. Guess I was expecting to see World Of Outlaws style racing and got NASCAR on dirt. Think Tony Stewart right, they should have raced at Eldora.

RE: Nascar Follies

The Bristol area had a lot of rain. Not like the Nashville area but a bunch. With low temperatures tomorrow will the clay even dry sufficiently to race tomorrow?

RE: Disposable Razors Observation

You're not imagining, disposable razors are junk. After some searching I began using Gillette SkinGuard blades in conjunction with the Gillette Pure shave cream. Neither are cheap, but probably best shave in my life. Get about 6 shaves out a cartridge. Think I paid 30 bucks for the handle which came with 4 blade cartridges and 8 additional cartridges on Amazon. SkinGuard is a 2 blade cartridge with this funny looking guard between the blades and an aloe impregnated lube strip. Don't get the science but it's a great shave.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

The tests were done before the vaccines were approved..... I will take whatever vaccine is available to me with full confidence. I don't know how the process works in Canada, but in the US, the 3 vaccines in use and any therapeutic procedure or medication to treat active Covid-19 infections were granted Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA. None are fully approved and licensed, that takes about 2 years or more of data collection and data analysis. The severity of the pandemic turned everything upside down.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

My experience: My brother in law (who is a physician) made me aware of VSafe. When I registered for the vaccine through CVS, as part of the procedure I had to print and electronically acknowledge receipt of a 6 page information document. Didn't mention VSafe but did provide a link and phone # for the HHS VAERS. When I got my first shot I was given another info sheet that provides info about VSafe. Simple procedure, went to CDC website found the VSafe registration link. Entered required info, received a confirmation text with a registration #. Tapped the registration # it opened the app and allowed me to answer 4 quick questions. From there forward, I was sent a text at same time each day to enter my daily report. After 3 consecutive days of reporting no side effects the texts ended.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

A question for all who have received a vaccine. Have any of you registered on the CDC VSafe tool to report vaccine side effects? Since we are all crash test dummies for the vaccines, reporting side effects no matter how minor is useful to the government and the manufacturers.

RE: Millage tax

When I first read of this proposal in the Washington Post, it was mentioned 3 states are in the process of studying or have implemented a mileage tax. I agree the motor fuel tax should be abolished if mileage taxation is enacted, but.........
