    I recently found out there is an Exxon station on my way to work that has pay at the pump (that actually works) when I use my speedpass+ app. It’s very satisfying to pull up to the pump at 2AM and be able to authorize that pump through pay on my phone before getting out of my car. No need to swipe my debit or credit card.

    I just downloaded the new Firefox Browser. It REALLY is a lot faster! :dance:

    Also, there's no more page jumping! :dancing-banana-04:

    CHEERS! :)

    EDIT: Some page jumping still occurs, but is still less annoying with the much faster browser speed!

    After much fretting and planning and exhausting work, I finally have my main speakers working again. They sound great, equal to what they were before. They have even greater power handling. :banana: :dance:

    Clint is a huge fan of fireworks shows.
    Clint's dogs are not.
    Clint spends every 4th of July missing fireworks shows to sit on the sofa holding three terrified dogs.
    Clint's dogs appreciate that and lick his face.
    That makes Clint happy.

    And you could always watch the Macy's Fireworks Spectacular on TV with the sound muted.

    My grandmother had a Pekingese, later a Shi-Tzu, both were terrified of fireworks. My black lab just snoozes through it all :)

    Such low maintenance.

    That my eye laser surgery is behind me. There's just 3 days of anti inflammatory eye drops to endure.

    That just slightly over 3 weeks remains before moving day!

    CHEERS! :)

    We had our final House inspection this morning, which went without a hitch. Just have to make sure we leave everything clean when we move out, and anything that doesn't belong to housing is removed from the premises.

    T-Minus 15 days remaining! :)

    CHEERS! :)

    There’s a Mexican restaurant close to where I live that serves the absolute best burrito filled with tender steak, rice, and refried beans and comes covered with white cheese dip and salsa verde and the large Dos Equis is pretty close to 40 ounces. This makes me very, very pleased. And slightly inebriated.

    Good luck, Tony! I kinda hope you will never need to post to the "Things That Annoy Me" thread anymore, but please check in to encourage the rest of us.:)

    Thank you very much for your encouragement, Mike! It is much appreciated!

    Thank you very much for your kind words!

    While I can't promise no annoyances, I have good reason to suspect there will be more on the what pleases me end, including occasional trips to the local Drive-In! Yup, you read that correctly! :)

    Imagine my surprise to discover that the Drive-In I patronized in my youth is STILL in operation! These are a rare enough breed these days, and London, Ontario's Mustang Drive-In actually boasts TWO screens! :) :)

    T-Minus 9 days to go!

    CHEERS! :)

    EDIT: Here's an article about the Mustang Drive-In from 3 years ago:

    There's no screaming children where we live now, as all of our building's residents must be at least 16 years of age! :D

    CHEERS! :)
