  1. Should have called the cops no matter what. More than likely they would have issued him a ticket and then it would have been all on his company. Technically not it is a no fault and the insurance is going to try to get out with as little liability as possible.
  2. The same SP for Cleveland all 3 times as well
  3. I don't remember it being there last year, but I didn't pay much attention. I can say this now because the DFS video this week had both and were very open about it, I switched over to rotogrinders.com for my DFS material. Covers every sport in depth. Quite a bit more $ but if you are serious it is a huge difference maker and you can purchase individual sport packages if you want.
  4. I actually do this quite a bit. I will smoke it all day on a Saturday when the wife is working and we will have it Sunday for lunch or supper. Like Joe said it is never the same as straight off the smoker but what I have found works pretty well. I will smoke, rest and pull the night before. I then put it in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, I will put it in a crock pot with either apple juice or Root Beer and set the crock pot to low. I check it fairly frequently, making sure to stir, mix or whatever you want to call it. If it looks like it is getting low on moisture will add more of whatever I used.
  5. Middle school where my son goes has approximately 350 students 6th-8th grade. Email said no cases district wide. No protocols in place. If a student is sick stay home of course. We were told there would be no contact tracing in place this year. In the middle school last year they traveled with their homeroom to all classes, but this year they went back to previous protocol which is you have your homeroom, but each subject will have different students.
  6. 1st full week of school. 0 reported case in faculty or students. No masks (governor signed a bill late last spring stating public schools cannot require students to wear masks)
  7. Iowa's governor signed a law last year that no public school can require masks. There will also be no contact tracing this year for students at my son's school district. We are a smaller district (350 total students in the middle school 6-8th grade) and I think there was less that 50 cases total last year between faculty and students.
  8. Where in the ____ was this Twins team earlier in the year?
  9. It says a lot about Cruz the player when the crowd at Target field last night not only game him a standing ovation when he came up to bat the first time, but also after his first homerun. He is one of those players that deserves a ring no matter who he gets it with so GO RAYS
  10. If it is an Iowa thing, it must be the heathen in eastern Iowa because in western Iowa it is play catch. From a Costner Interview:
  11. From Iowa so of course I have seen it, multiple times.
  12. I just bought a chrome book for my mother-in-law. They do not have internet, so I bought one that was "on sale" from verizon that has 4g built in. Convincing her to get a cell phone was a battle but after she got one she fell in love with it and being able to catch up with friends and snoop on facebook etc. I got her an android phone so I went with a chrome book to try to keep things a similar to her phone as possible, plus she doesn't need the extra stuff. Luckily (or unlucky depending on how you look at it ) we live in the same town so it is pretty easy just to go to her house to help if she has questions or clean things up.
  13. I am a Twins fan (frustrating year for sure) but I will be rooting for the Rays the rest of the way. I have always been amazed at how they are able to put together a very competitive team every year despite being a small market team with a limited roster bankroll. Then Minnesota goes and trades Cruz to them. I know the trade had to be done, Minnesota got more than I thought the would for him and hopefully those players can be solid. I was a fan of Cruz when Minnesota signed him and he has been probably one of the best free agent signings in Twins history, very fun to watch and easy to be a fan of. Hopefully he can get a ring in Tampa because he deserves one.
  14. Looking for your experience if you use edge, chrome or something else. We are very much a Google family (android phones, android TV, Google smart devices) but lately I have noticed that chrome seems very slow and even unstable on some sites. I have read that edge is nothing like explorer (which I hated to use and only used when forced to with work) and more similar to chrome and in some cases more stable and less of a resource hog. What is your experience?
  15. Been watching more baseball this year. As a Twins fan it has been painful but it is what it is. Also playing more DFS baseball and have been doing pretty well. (part of the reason I have been watching more. The service I use, I am able to watch all games, so usually I have one on in the background but not necessarily paying attention to it. Wife is usually watching her tablet, so I might as well have something on the TV.
  16. I would say a bit of both. All models of cars have problems, if they didn't there would be no need for a dealership to have a service department to work on them. I will also agree that some models are a lot more reliable than other models no matter what the make is.
  17. And the first thing I will ask you as a Service Manager when you ### about the cost on estimate to repair your car in the rare event something goes wrong is "Did you purchase an extended warranty?"
  18. 1. I am too smart to live in Packer country! 2, The only time you get your money back is if you trade or sell your vehicle before the plan is over. It will be prorated to the amount of time/mileage used + cost of repairs during that time. 3. 95% of service contracts will not cover those items, exhaust, battery, brakes, spark plugs are considered maintenance. What you are purchasing when you purchase the paint protection/fabric protection is basically a service contract for your interior/exterior. 4. I am not as familiar with Hondas (work at a GM dealer) but cars in general are more expensive to repair now than they were 10 or even 5 years ago. The hybrid systems in these vehicle just generally adds to the cost of that repair. I know batteries are not covered, but I would inquire if the the hybrid battery is covered or if that falls under the same category as a normal battery. Best to know that information ahead of time.
  19. I work at a dealership and while I don't do any of the paint protection, fab protection, etc. I do purchase an extended warranty on my vehicles when I purchase them. Buying a hybrid I would seriously consider it. Of course, you will have to know what is covered and not covered, what the term of the contract is and the cost of the contract. Most contracts run in the neighborhood of 2900-4900 depending on length and amount of coverage. It is basically an insurance policy on something breaking down on your vehicle. If you are able to put the money you would spend on a contract away and never touch it unless the car breaks down, do it that way because chances are you will be money ahead if you never have to fix your car. However, most people are not able to do that and the cost to repair vehicles has never been higher. If you have any questions, let me know and I will try to answer them.
  20. Lately I have been getting a bunch of Spam text message from @gmail, @yahoo accounts and other email addresses. I can report spam message and block if they come from a phone number but I don't have the option to block these. I am currently on Verizon. Is there an app or setting that I can change to stop these? Wife is getting them also, but luckily our 13 yr old is not getting them on his phone yet.
  21. Computer or console? It sucks to go up in price, but sometimes it s worth it. We went through headset after headset for our son (13 years old) trying to save money. Last year for Christmas, we spend more than we normally do and got these for him Turtle beach headphones and the have held up well. They work good for xbox, are blue tooth and maybe someone can else can answer if they would work on CPU. Good luck with headphones.
  22. I would say congrats, but you bought a FORD! I can't say much thought because lately we have had Chevys coming into the shop with less than 5000 miles and collapsed lifters.
  23. Because we were taught growing up that you went to work unless you were running a fever, or leaking from the top end or bottom end. You did not stay home for a cold, you sucked it up and went to work. Raising a bunch of wimps these days.
  24. You are probably better buying new rather than used right now if you can find the inventory. If you don't NEED the vehicle I would probably wait until the market cools down.
  25. Yes it is. The biggest issue is that part of the reason used cars (especially later models) are going so high is that new car inventory is way down. We have customers waiting 4-6 months for new vehicles when ordering. If you aren't particular on options and color, you may be able to find somthing. We normally have 40+ 1/2 ton pickups on our lot at one time, we currently have 7. It started when factories shut down because of covid and when they opened back up they were at partial compacity. Now they are seeing shortage and backorders on parts needed to complete builds due to supply issues in other parts of the world. It is a snowball effect. Luckily in my service department we haven't been impacted by parts shortages too much yet (especially essential parts needed to run), but I have a feeling it will be coming.
