Thanks guys! :th_thicon_idea:

I hit 57 today. Three years I hit the big 60! :th_thicon_lol:

Wife cooked bratwurst in the crockpot with Lone Star beer and onions. Top it with sauerkraut and jalapenos and my wife's sausage queso. Fresh, not canned, green beans on the side. Mighty fine!

Dang Alte, you could slap that on a bun and have one helluva sandwich! Throw in a side of hand battered onion rings! :rocknroll2:

Ship, I assume that it operates like the Chromebook laptops? It can be "power washed" and restored to the factory settings?

If so, this might be an option for to check out as well.

Yes, this is basically a desktop version of the Chromebook laptop. It is a desktop Chrome computer - just without the keyboard, mouse and monitor.

I use an old 17" LCD computer monitor hooked to it. My old monitor is not an HDMI monitor. So, I got an HDMI to VGA adapter to use the older monitor.

This is just an option if you don't want a laptop. If you wanted to use a mouse and fullsize keyboard - I was thinking this might be an option.

Thank you Ship.  :th_thicon_idea:

It is a very good option. I may go with one desktop, and one laptop.

Most excellent suggestion.

Cars, Trucks, Bikes, Atvs / Re: The One That Got Away!

If, (huge IF!) I were going to buy a modern muscle car, the Dodge Challenger would be the one that excites me the most.

But, I have always been more of a truck kind of person. Try putting a load of lumber into a car!

Back in 2005, I traded in my 2003 Ram 1500 on a 2005 Ram 1500. The salesman was a friend of mine and let me test drive a new 2005 Ram SRT-10. That truck was scary fast! No, I didn't buy it! But it was fun, it just didn't fit my needs for a truck. I ended up buying the Ram 1500 SLT, with the HO 4.7 and 5speed automatic trans.
Problem with the SRT trucks is they lost almost all towing and hauling ability. The Lighting however was still a truck and would haul and tow same as a reg F150.

I recall a time when I was pimping this ol 94 gen 1 L with over 400k on the odo. A man in a shiny new Ram1500 hemi rolled up and thought he was hot snot. The view he got of the  tail end of the ol black beast told him he was just a cold booger.


More fun was chasing BMWs or Hondas on twisty back roads in the 03 L the looks were priceless.

Exactly the point why I wouldn't have bought the RAM srt-10! If I can't use a truck as a truck, then it's pretty much useless to me. That rear bed mounted spoiler was a hindrance as well. But, it was a very cool truck, and scary fast!

Now the rumor is, Leroy gets most of his news information from MSNBC on the Rachel Maddow show. Scuttlebutt is he has the hots for her. Personally, I don't have the heart, (or stomach!) to tell him she likes girls. :th_thicon_lol:

Tonight starts the new Walking Dead. :zombieman:   :th_thicon_lol:

Please don't tell my wife! :wave1:

Thank you guys! :th_thicon_idea:

Wife had to cover another workers shift, so she's taking me out for my birthday Tuesday evening.

I sure wished I could have done this to ex-wife #1. But, unfortunately there was no Wi-Fi, or even internet back then!

The wife and I are playing catch up on the series Yellowstone, starring Kevin Costner on the Paramount channel. Pretty decent show so far.

Leftover hamburgers tonight, but I'm going to jazz them up with some sauteed mushrooms, swiss cheese, and bacon slices! :rocknroll2:

About one-quarter of the content from FOX news :rocknroll2:

I have to respectfully disagree Randy. Fox news, many on there will tell you that they are commentators, expressing personal viewpoints, not journalists, or reporters. IMO that is what separates, or puts them way above most of the liberal. MSM. Many of MSM outlets try to justify their Trump hatred, or even disguise it, as reporting the news, or calling it journalism. They aren't fooling me!

General Survival Discussion / Re: BOB For the Vehicle.....
« on: Today at 07:23:30 PM »
I keep an AK with 80 rounds and a Mexican blanket in my truck. I figure I can sort out most anything else that arises........

I didn't mention firearms for good reason. One reason is I got into the habit of never ever leaving a gun in a vehicle, when a pistol was stolen from my locked vehicle over thirty years ago. Only exception to that, is the vehicle is secured in garage or structure. Second, I use to have several vehicles, so that would mean having to buy or choose multiple guns and ammo for those vehicles. Third, the BOB pretty much stays in the vehicle at all times. Refer to reason one again. Fourth, it's a get back home, or get to a safer and populated area bag, not a get out of dodge the zombies are coming bag!

If you have an extra monitor, you can also get a Chromebox, and just have a desktop. That way you would have the fullsize keyboard and mouse you wanted anyway.

What is nice is Asus Chromebox is the size of 4 or 5 CD cases stacked. Tiny computer.

I still have a couple of flat screen monitors stashed away.

Awesome!  :rocknroll2:

I'm grilling hamburgers for dinner tonight. Making homemade french fries to with them as well. Also going to grill some hot dogs, and some huge pork chops to eat for the next few days as well. :rocknroll2:

If you have a Roku device, or Roku equipped TV, you can now download RedBox to it. There are many free movies and programs to watch, as well as being able to rent the newest movies.

Wife is renting the new Tom Hanks movie, Mister Rogers Neighborhood tonight to watch.
