    You are not a radio station RANT

    DJs yapping it up during the intro and don't shut up until the vocals start. And 45 minutes of the same commercials per hour. My wife has Sirius XM in her SUV. 99% of the time it's on one station. When I had something to drive my radio had almost 30 Sirius stations programmed in.

    Vehicle shopping surprise of the day.

    EVs are nice. I contemplated getting one when I could drive solo (can't now due to spine/neck surgery). Still wouldn't buy one. Charging stations aren't on every corner,too much FRED technology to go wrong,they're a hacker's wet dream,I could go on.

    Saw 2 great acts last night

    Yeah it was luck. Not very many top name acts come to my area. Plus tickets are beyond my money range. The Spinning Jenny prices are dirt cheap. And I live three miles from Jenny. Another plus.
