    Re: New Car

    Great looking car - and a happy owner to boot. (no pun intended ...)

    So how do you deal with the lack of high-tech digital devices, electronics, self-parking, voice commands, etc.? :jester:

    Re: Paperless!

    Great cartoon! Like Mrs. Wiggins always polishing her nails.

    I like the PDF statement feature too, and I've recently done PDF screenshots of ebay and craigslist ads ... just in case.

    Open discussion among people is good; doesn't have to be happy all the time.

    I wondered if there's anyone else who's "underwhelmed" by paperless billing.

    Re: Drive Your Triumph day photos.

    David - great photos! Tell us more about Ocmulgee and the mounds. That building in the first photo looks like it might be a WPA project from the 1930s or 40s.
