    Decided its too far to drive just to spend maybe two hours at the show before giving up due to the heat. 92* and 62% humidity. We'll wait and see about next year. Want to get the 71 going before next month's olmarais.com River Run. Greaserama is Labor Day weekend. https://www.revitupcarshow.org/ www.basehorcarshow.com

    Just thinking that tomorrow's stop is the same place I have been to twice already and even stayed at the same Motel 6 in the same room both times. One more reason not to care if I go or not.

    Danger is my middle name. I forgot about the throttle not opening all the way on the el camino. Might explain lack of power and shifting problem. Read there are different length cables. I did put a new one on at some point and changed to the fitech tbi.

    Off this week for the first time in three months and of course its 100 in the shade all week. Really need to mow the grass and clean the gutters and cut down all the saplings AGAIN. Had some root killer somewhere but it was years old when I got it. I did get a new chain for my saw a while back. Was thinking about getting gutter screens installed. People down the street got some recently. Really only need the front ones the back isn't a problem. Gutters were nine hundred a couple years ago so covers shouldn't be so bad. House is straight 25x50. Nothing fancy.

    Got "demoted" at work in November. They just last week got around to changing my job title on the company website. This week I got a .75 cent pay cut. Technically understandable but I had just gotten a 20 or 25 cent raise like a month ago. Also if it took them that long to figure it out its on them and with all the worker shortages and people asking for higher minimum wage its BS. Especially without even talking to you about it hoping you don't notice I guess. Looks like they raised shift pay from a dollar to a dollar fifty so they have to get that back some how.Plus wasting three million on a mostly worthless remodel so they can bitch about money for the next five years. We have more online customers all the time and could be looking at another lockdown at some point so who cares about the building.

    Ordered a part on the 11th. Was supposed to be here yesterday but now today. Direct from China or some BS. Look at the tracking and it went from KCMO to KCK and back to KCMO before coming to Lawrence.

    without turning into the things I'm bitching about today, LTE was supposed to mean LONG TERM Evolution. What is that in phone time, 3 years? :| shutting up now.

    man it's been a while, but the thing used to be CDMA vs. GSM. Carriers like Verizon didn't use SIM cards. I don't think that has been the case in a while... so yeah, in theory, you pop a SIM in it from another carrier and you're on your way. Maybe one way to check is if you have another phone or buddy phone that you can pop that SIM card in and see if the phone works? Worth a shot. 5G isn't really a thing worth buying a new phone over yet, despite the aliens attempts at mind control via 5G. I can say this about T-Mobile. Their service sucks at least as bad as every other major providers does in this state. Coverage sucks. I'd almost be tempted to try a burn phone on whatever cheapest service is because they probably use everyone's towers and your coverage probably has a snowball's chance. Example, I-45 is one of the biggest veins in this state and I can't get 100% coverage from one end to the other driving from Dallas to Houston.

    Good luck with all that. I'm close to going back to a potato phone... if they would put decent audio chips in them, I believe I would.
