You should have your license suspended if you don’t have insurance. But I’m sure that is impossible to enforce.
That would work if he HAD a license. :censored: No I'm sorry, a Mexican ID card is NOT a drivers license! Jeez.
Plus, he was not the owner of the car, he was an employee. But, turns out the owner was insured after I reported the car license to my own insurance company.
They got VIN#, owner insurance info, etc all from the car. Now they are going after my deductible too, so hopefully I won't pay a thing, but my cars out of commission for a couple of weeks.

My last full day today at the lake. I am on vacation all week, but I have neglected several projects at home this year including taking down 2 trees. Plus hockey is in full swing and tryouts are next week so if I am gonna pick a team, I better start watching kids skate.

The end of the lake season is so bittersweet. I spend the first 2-3 weeks of fall like weather being in denial that summer is over. Then I spend a couple weeks truly enjoying the fall weather, fires and chili because I know anytime we could be under several inches of snow (sounds like that will be the end of the week).

Either way, since I was a kid, the last days at the lake are always hard.
We closed yesterday. I had a very sad and moody husband. Ours is a seasonal cabin only, we have to get the water shut off and drained before it freezes so this last weekend was as far as we wanted to risk it. It didn't help that up north it was windy, rainy and generally blah all weekend. Only bright point was listening to the football game on KBUN.
But it was a good season overall. Now I am making wild grape jelly from grapes on the island. They're much smaller, more seeds and intensely flavored. People who've tried it say "it's grape times ten". It was a bumper crop so I"m hoping for at least 16 jars. First you make grape juice, then you make the jelly. It's a 2 day process but worth it.
The fact that I don't own a cabin to close up sticks in my craw....

We pulled out the dock and lift yesterday or, as we call it, the worst day of the year.
The cabin itself is close to our house (45 minutes away) enough that we can still use it for a few weeks before turning off the water and winterizing but it's essentially done for the year.

Contractors and other service providers who call you 2 hours into a 4 hour window to tell you they have to reschedule. Would have been nice to have some notice so I didn’t have to rearrange my entire work day.

I’m convinced it may be 2021 before I get my basement remodeled

The 394 exits from Plymouth Road. Signs are CLEARLY MARKED, yet 4 out of every 5 work days, some moron can't understand them, and has to change lanes in the MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION, :censored: ing everything up. I don't let them in, because:
1. They are morons.
2. If you can't line up the signs, how the hell do you have a license?

WTH? What road project is going on 35 S north of Albert Lea? And again on 169 near Mankato? We went down to Iowa and in both directions hit single lane traffic, 35 was over 18 miles! Mankato about 15. Now as far as we could tell there was literally nothing going on. No equipment. No tear ups. Nor did it appear that something HAD been done and they just hadn’t opened the highway yet. Just mile after mile of orange barrels blocking one lane. It was frustrating and slooooooow.

North or south of Mankato? I was down there a week ago and there was no construction on 169.

Just south. At least 15 miles long, very slow both ways. There was no clue as to what was happening. And for Albert Lea it is just north.

My family is at Disney World. The number of able bodied people in their 20s and 30s who never offer or even seem to consider standing to allow senior citizens or disabled people to sit is really pissing me off.

That is sad.
The “me” generation at work. Sad thing is their kids will learn those traits too so it will likely not improve with younger generations.
The best you can do is continually set a good example for your kids and the others around you by showing that courtesy.

My legs are smoked but I am standing on every train and in every restaurant waiting area. And my kids are trained to offer to get up for seniors, disabled, and women.

They are in the process now of putting up median barriers. They are moving at a snails pace, they aren't even past my work which is right by the Minneopa Falls turnoff.

ALWAYS offer your seat to an elder, female, child, etc. ALWAYS. Call it old-fashioned, polite, sexist, chivalrous, I don't care. It's how it should be done.

I draw the line at kids, babies being the exception (the carrier being placed on my seat is fine). This debate is not a modern one though. We’ve always battled doing the right thing.😉

When we were in Singapore a couple years ago people would damn near jump out of seats on busses or trains to give their seats to older people, pregnant women, or young kids. It was damn near a competition to see who could give up their seat first and if someone didn't the rest of the train would let them have it.

Sadly you could add able bodied people in powered carts, etc to this. Disney is a long day but just take rests now and then.

Anything to do with having to go to a government (Hennepin County in my case) ‘Service’ center. There is no service here. You get a number, might as well staple it to your ear because you are in a cattle pen waiting until they get to you. First try one hour 45 minutes, second time was express because first time failed, third time 45 minutes. It took my day to do this. How come the government can’t automate the process? This is all shuffling paper, stamping forms, issuing licenses. A teller machine could do this.

Being in Vegas when the Pack play sucks. The amount of mulleted fat people stretching a jersey so tight it should be considered cruel and unusual punishment marveling at the idea of buildings higher than 5 stories gets old quick. Even my gf was mocking them.

Anything to do with having to go to a government (Hennepin County in my case) ‘Service’ center. There is no service here. You get a number, might as well staple it to your ear because you are in a cattle pen waiting until they get to you. First try one hour 45 minutes, second time was express because first time failed, third time 45 minutes. It took my day to do this. How come the government can’t automate the process? This is all shuffling paper, stamping forms, issuing licenses. A teller machine could do this.
Bureaucracy at it's finest.

IDK, I remember getting my license renewed and did the initial part online and the whole process might've taken 15 minutes tops. That said I suppose it depends what you're there for.

All of it could be automated, it’s not so modern and cutting edge anymore to use dna and facial recognition to confirm identification, Eyeball recognition, dna swab of your mouth, whatever they need is fine with me. People might not like them having that info but I guess I haven’t had a problem where I feel unsafe with the government having that info.
Walk in and enter your ID card or scan the chip they planted in you, or the RFI code tattooed on your neck, take a dna sample or eye scan, done. They will see all my transgressions and decide if I should be driving, hunting, or in jail, fine. I must be crazy, if the state tried to implement it there would be no end to the cost. MNLarS was three strikes and abandoned to the tune of over $100 million.

Same. Even more than the cold, what I hate most about fall/winter is the lack of daylight. Right now I go to work in the dark, and come home in the (almost) dark.

I believe this was tried in the 60's. Regardless, the only issue is the sun doesn't rise until after 8:30 in December and January with DST and is deemed dangerous to children going to school. But in general, I tend to agree.

I don't mind the dark, but it's always a chore to getting used to the transition. I look outside, and it just feels later than it is, and throws me off.

I think I notice most in the mornings. It’s time to get working and it’s still dark outside and I struggle to get moving. In the summer I could fire up the computer at 6 am and I was ready to go. Now I have to push myself at 8 am.

This. It getting dark early doesn't bother me. It being pitch black at 7:00AM does.

I am not an early person so it being light in the morning doesn’t matter to me. I get why though.

I went to see an orthopedic surgeon yesterday and right away I got a form questionare about the experience. OK great they're trying to improve things but one question was about the effectiveness of the treatment. The appointment was less that 24 house ago. I have almost a whole course of meds to finish. How the hell do I know if it's effective yet? Last time they pulled fluid off that knee it felt great right away, like it does now, but it swelled up again and got tight within a week. Let's give it a while to see what the longer term effectiveness is, K?

My craw is usually so full that it's hardly big enough to stick anything more in there...though my beautiful bride would strongly disagree. Anyway, not sure this thought really belongs here, but I wasn't sure where else to post. It continues to amaze me when someone expresses an opinion and are told "You're wrong". Not fact based, just their viewpoint on something. Not even "I disagree and here is why", simply "WRONG!!!". Fascinating. :shock:

If a viewpoint is an interpretation of an event, that is not an opinion. An event has truth. For example, discerning motivation may be part of the interpretation. But there is a true motivation.

I mean...opinions can be wrong. I agree though it is better if you can back it up with reasons.

It always sticks in my craw when people (not you Chris) say "You cant say opinions are wrong!". That is ridiculous of course you can. I have to respect your right to HAVE an opinion, but I dont have to think your opinion is correct just because you have it. (again not you Chris just piggybacking your post)

I'm semi-retired and Wednesday is one of my days off, I go to the Y nearby and swim. The roads this morning were ridiculous. Did the Edina road crew not know the snow that's been forecast for a week was coming? It was just a little more than a dusting, all the roads needed was a bit of salt. They were fine but the time I got out of the Y, but a 7:45 they were glare ice. They had clearly salted while I was swimming but why not before rush hour? :ddown:

The roads in Eagan were pretty bad too and luckily I was going slow enough that I didn't slide too much or spin out completely. There was at least one guy in the ditch. 35W seemed mostly ok though I think I had slight traction issues at one point.

I put my snow tires on my car on Nov 1st, just like every year. Wasn't too much of a problem. Most of the people at my work complaining about roads are the ones driving around on their nearly bald, all-season tires with 75,000 "tread life".

I've always driven on winter tires, but wait until I put them on until the forecast calls for measurable snow and/or ice. I have a brand new set of four, already mounted on separate wheels, in the garage right now, just waiting for that winter forecast before I schedule an appointment. Once mounted, it makes a world of difference, and when driven responsively I'll then only have to worry about the other guy. Usually you can spot which of those guys will end up in the ditch as they pass you at a too-unsafe speed for the conditions....

I have driven a RWD vehicle since 2001. Never ditched, etc. It's the driver, not the vehicle.
The point I was trying to make is that ANY driver is better off and safer at speed with an AWD vehicle equipped with four winter tires than a RWD-only vehicle shod with non-winter tires. In any case, even a good, experienced driver (like yourself!) is going to better off with the former.

When you tell somebody somethin', it depends on what part of the country you're standin' in... as to just how dumb you are.

Eh I dont care. It is not my job to tell people how to honor their country or their flag. As long as they dont interfere with how I do it I cant be bothered. It is the same with whether people take their hat off or not.

For the record I would stop and be silent and I take off my hat but I only care about what I do.

I "deleted" my Facebook account like 10 years ago after watching Zuckerberg in an interview and realizing his opinion on privacy was disturbing. Then I found out you never delete your account, it's just suspended. Basically they own everything you put on there.

Once something is on the web, it is there forever.
