Good job, people were starting to fret...

Nice to have the PWA back to stretch out in.

This is the summer of thunder and lighting and no rain.

OK, how is everything with you?

Thanks! Thought I'd drop in for a few minutes. It has been way too long! I'm wondering how the buy out by Amazon will eventually change Woot. Did the bigwigs get a load of cash and move to Costa Rica, yet?

Talk about culture shock, TX to Seattle. I love Seattle, but the climate is about as opposite as you can get in the states.

Hi, Tenn. No, it's St. Louis to Seattle.

Jeez, I've still been posting on Yammer. Didn't see the new thread. Thanks, AZ.

Sheets on the bed are dirty
Bathroom is dirty
I told son bathroom is dirty and he said, but I cleaned it last time she was here.

His apt is going to be scary.

Seatle is known for their coffee houses not unlike micro breweries. Comparing a good small batch house blend to Starbucks would be like comparing a good house brew to budwiser, or your home baked goodies to sara lee.

You do know it was their commercial?

Everybody doesn't like something, but nobody doesn't like Sara Lee.



It doesn't seem as good now as it was when I was younger.

Perhaps all the preservatives are healthier, now? Might have tasted better with shorter shelf life.

We all know those unhealthy fats they took out, taste way better than the healthy stuff.
Lard v olive oil or stuff like that for frying.

Hey, does anyone here have a Garmin 1450? Thinking seriously of getting one. Will be my first GPS. The reason I'm looking at that one, it's got a 5-inch screen. I figure I can use all the help I can get.

I don't know that one but 5" seems a bit large to me. We've got a 3" screen I think. The only part I look at is the miles until next turn and the roads at the top of the screen (e.g. I-20 East to I-30 West). That and just the lines on the map showing what direction to go. You're not really looking at detail so much as general idea of where you're going.

Be sure to get spoken street names. That's a must.

Oh, and I like our Garmin.

Absolutely on the spoken street names and probably the lane advisory.

I've used one without audible street names, and one with audible street names. I definitely agree, go with instead of without on that feature. It's well worth it.

OOOOO New people, new PWA.

welcome back Tennabee

Ya all be nice about Seattle I live in Seattle-lite now and would love to move there. Proper cultural stuff and damn good coffee and micro brews. Not to mention I've got friends in the maker scene there. And sushi. . . . and chinese market, and real restaurants, and did I mention sushi?

Other things to consider:

a) traffic updates
b) map update cost

I've got a navigon. I absolutely love it. It lives in my car. Sadly, it's gone to service for phones in the states--the new models aren't sold here anymore though they're still supported if you can find one. Amazon still carries the older ones.
