    That's a lot of kidney stones.

    Winter Car Storage

    If you have summer only high performance tires then you'll need to watch the temp even if the weather is otherwise nice. I find in the mid Atlantic there are plenty of days that hit 50-60 so it's not been a problem.

    Would you take the CV-19 vaccine

    If the White House had not been messing with FDA and CDC I would. But at this point I'd probably wait. Vaccines tend to work better in children based on their immune systems' capability to respond. Old folks lose immunocompetence with age. But old folks have money and they vote and are at higher risk if they actually get sick. So in our country the people who get the vaccine are the one's least likely to mount an effective immune response. The Japanese use that strategy for influenza - vaccinate the school age kids so they don't infect grandpa and grandma. To the extent that current vaccine development strategies are targeting spike proteins on COVID, it's likely to be hit or miss. If the virus evolves and the vaccine target no longer presents itself then bad luck. A whole virus vaccine is more likely to have secondary targets. https://www.healio.com/news/primary-care/20200302/flu-vaccination-does-not-reduce-hospitalizations-death-in-older-adults?fbclid=IwAR1X_5-Ogj-pUQbA2QleRlrSXxSsfocJ6QtraiF6abmw0IUQxzS1li1zp2Y

    The backstory turned out to be complicated, and as I recall the photographer came to regret the attention. Apparently the guy being executed in the pic had just killed a family.

    NFL 2020

    It is football misery. At least the Tigers have been winners in our lifetimes, the Bad Boy Pistons had a run, and the Red Wings got a few Stanley Cups.

    NFL 2020

    So was it Belichick or Brady for all those SB wins? Great Belichick reply in the post game interview. Interviewer: Bill, no fans in the stands etc. Have you ever experienced anything like that in your football career? BB: Practice.

    What to do in Baltimore?

    USS Constellation - Civil War era ship, not the Continental Navy ship of the same name. Old Ironsides is USS Constitution and remains in Boston. Aquarium, USCG Taney, Submarine Torsk. A few museums, Fell's Point etc. What are your interests?

    Best Porsche 911??

    Cayman GT4 with PDK if you can find one. Mid engine - great balance.
