Went to a party this weekend for a girl that is as close to a daughter as we ever had. First surprise was she and the groom got married by a JP and used the wedding costs for important things. Second was their "starter" house is a half a million dollar spread ( her a physical therapist specializing in brain injuries, him something about computers, both with advanced degrees). Last, NOT ONE I-Phone type device was seen during the two hours we were there, the ages ranged from infants to a couple of 80 year olds (us) and people were making eye contact and talking to each other rather than staring at the ground.

- The 216 and early 235 engines are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler. []

Don't get crazy, Martin. Soon enough there will be cell coverage everywhere. Then the end as we know it will indeed be upon us.
