    They just completed construction of a bus rapid transit (BRT) line where I live. The bus, known as The Pulse, has only been running for about 3 weeks and already there have been 2 accidents where cars ran into the new stations located in the middle of the road. This week there was an incident where a truck apparently crossed into the dedicated bus-only lane and collided with the bus, injuring several people. The joke now among locals is that if you take The Pulse, you'll ending up getting your pulse taken. x1:crying:

    Ads like this that block almost the entire page because I use an adblocker is pathetic...When I run into a website like this I never return...The Washington Post was not like this before, now because of this they lost me as a frequent visitor...

    I've been having problems like that too. The other thing I've seen frequently is "We use cookies" message at the bottom of the page.

    Yeah the cookies message is a new internet rule, I think mostly for European sites but it could be American sites too...

    Google just lost me...I have changed my search engines to NOT include Google ever again on any of my home computers...

    The nerve of them, I was searching something and Google stopped me and wanted me to prove I'm a human...Shown below, not only did I first click this but then they popped up another box wanting me to select cars in pictures...F@&% Google, sorry, I am not doing that dance...

    About 2 years ago I was using an onion router...fast web page loading it was not, but did the job. I started getting those messages right after I upgraded to Oreo. Coincidence ?
    May have to use onion router or Orbot, or inbrowser

    Took my mother to the eye doctor today, she is having retina detachment and macula problem on her left eye, her retina detachment problem is quite bad, some people can see after the sugery, she can't, her eye is very blur, just removed the boold clot in the left eye today and found out that she is having a tiny hole in another eye, that can turn into another retina detachment any time, i want to do the laser to patch up that hole tomorrow, the early the better..

    The economy is booming, apparently in some positions of employment there are labour shortages, in the last 10 days I've received almost as many job offers most as a plant manager...Three of them were out of state offers willing to pay to relocate me and one a very very good salary...It's nice and I'd love to do it but I'm not prepared or very willing to relocate at this time...

    Two nights ago I received a phone call, a local production facility needs a plant manager and offered me the job...Turns out its a manufacturing plant less than 20 minutes from my house out past some farms...I drove there yesterday and met with them and walked through their facility and talked a while...

    I got really good vibes from everything I saw and heard from them, they offered me a good salary and benefits, I decided to go ahead and accepted the job...I start this coming Monday morning...

    Three months ago I said I was staying away from this lol, I did seriously considered the out of state job offers and 10 years ago I would have relocated, I just don't want to right now...

    I never acknowledge that message. I have a feeling it's more than just regular cookies. It doesn't effect the visit on site if you just ignore the message.

    I do that on purpose. lol

    After I clean my wardrobe and put them away for the season, I'll stuff something in the pocket like $50 or something. It's fun.
