    Probably an accident.. Gil comes back to EWT for a shower, then returns to the trenches. In battle, sometimes we bring it home with us..

    EWT like a cleansing of the soul. Or shopping at Amazon.

    Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. tonight, my stream is holding up nicely.

    Of course they're much older now and it's called an exhibition fight. So what does a fight like that look like? Are they going to pull their punches, just tap each other. Or will they go all out. Boxing if not going all out is pretty pointless.

    I can sympathize with batteries.
    I am never included in anything either.

    Yes, that is me.

    It has vanished, they don't know where it went, who took it.

    "Here is our official statement on the rumors surrounding the "#Monolith:" We have received credible reports that the illegally installed structure, referred to as the “monolith” has been removed from Bureau of Land Management (BLM) public lands by an unknown party. The BLM did not remove the structure which is considered private property. We do not investigate crimes involving private property which are handled by the local sheriff’s office. The structure has received international and national attention and we received reports that a person or group removed it on the evening of Nov. 27.”

    That was very good. You would think a story around chess might be boring but it was not.

    ------------------
    Notre Dame won again

    Falcons beat the Raiders, or whipped them 43-6.

    whoa - Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill in the first quarter: 7 catches, 203 yards, 2 TD. Now up to
    261 yards receiving, 3rd quarter.

    -------------------
    Where did it go

    So my wife comes up to me in the kitchen.. as I'm cooking pasta sauce;

    "What's the difference between an Android and a smartphone?"

    I answer; "They're the same thing."

    She responds "Ok so an Android is an iPhone?"

    I say "No, Android is the brand, a smartphone is a thing, like a telephone."

    And she says "Oh ok, so like iPhone is by Google?"

    I see where this is headed, and it never ends well.. so I says;

    "Ok, look, let me put it like this.. what's the difference between our Jeep and a car?"

    and then she looks at me like I'm an idiot.. which is really no different from any other day.

    I says "Do you see what I mean?"

    Now my daughter walks in and asks what we're talking about.

    Wife tells her "We've figured out if I want a new phone I need an Android plan put on it."

    dunno man. Is this a Christmas hint of sorts??

    Take it from me when it comes to wives making hints of what they want.
    Just either get it for them, or tell them to get whatever they want.
    Life if better that way, I mean it....
    Just like the other day, she showed me something for her iphone she thinks will be what she wants.
    Simply, she wants something that will magnify her screen so the pictures will be bigger.
    I said, order it.
    It is on the way now.

    Remember the old days....
    The dodge, my first wife wanted....
    She did not get.
    I wanted, but the police station across the street said no to me.

    I just ordered my own monolith for my backyard.

    ----------------------------------------------

    I will turn on the heat for the first time this year, I see a 43 and 37 next couple of nights.

    ----------------------------------------------

    My favorite Travel Channel, think I want to do what he does in the future. Dude is smooth. Like I said, people think former military or spy maybe. English bloke mainly riding around Russia, checking things out. Fluent in Russian and other languages. Encyclopedic knowledge of history.

    "In the 1960s American spy satellites photographed a huge leviathan craft docked in the Caspian Sea. The CIA dubbed it the Caspian monster. It was however a top secret Ekranoplan that was built for war. It remained in a naval dockyard under lock and key after the USSR collapsed until recently when it broke free and washed ups on a beach a few hours to the south near the Russian city of Derbent. I flew to Rostov and set off across the varied landscapes and cultures of Southern Russia in search of the infamous Caspian monster."

    About the 30 minute mark, abandoned 2,000 year old village high up in the mountains, some nice views.

    Make sure you order the Utah version and not the Romanian knock off. ;)
    ````````````````````````
    I've seen some of that guys videos and they are outstanding.
    A remarkable man.

    There used to be a show on PBS called California's Gold, hosted by Huell Howser.
    I always thought this cat had the best job in the world. While there are many things outside of Cali that are interesting, you could spend a lifetime just exploring all the nooks and crannies in the Golden State.

    "Huell Howser travels around California looking for interesting stories about the state's rich history, cultural diversity, landmarks, natural wonders, amazing people and points of interest, especially lesser known and out-of-the-way places."

    Just him a cameraman and a sound man.
    The series ran for 24 years.

    So I got some free stuff from Amazon.

    I've been doing some orders.

    1 packaged addressed to me was supposed to be 2 books.

    I opened it up, it was somebody else's stuff.

    Called Amazon and they resent the 2 books I didn't get.

    So what do with this other person's stuff that was addressed to me.

    Guy on phone said I could give the package to Amazon delivery person. Ok, but when I got off the phone, they also sent me an email about return label. Link went to some page with a QR code and something about taking it to Kohls.

    Saw Amazon Delivery guy, they don't take returns, only do deliveries.

    Called Customer Service again, asking about them sending me a return label.

    The guy said just keep the stuff, I won't be charged and the person who didn't get the order probably called them to get it resent anyway.

    Unfortunately, it's nothing I can really use. 3 items, shampoo, conditioner, female variety and some garage hub thing.

    Just got the email:

    "I sincerely apologize that you receive someone else package. In this case, there's no need to return the item for us to issue a refund. You're welcome to keep, donate or dispose of it--whichever option is most appropriate and convenient for you. Please rest assured that you won't be charged for this. "

    What if it was something like a laptop, camera or something. Not some shampoo and conditioner.

    This is that garage thing, normally $40, on sale for $30 - https://www.amazon.com/Smart-Garage-Opener-Chamberlain-MYQ-G0301/dp/B075H7Z5L8

    I'll pass, but thank you. Your photo? Beauty sure looks like it lives up to its name.
    Weld seams are flawless on the Utah.. the Romanian job on the other hand, could probably do a better job with a portable mig. And one eye closed. Standing backwards and upside down on one hand.

    There was a article recently about employees of Amazon shipping incorrect items deliberately to hurt the companies bottom line and reputation. I can't find it now. Could be Amazon controlling or censorship.... I don't know which.
