  1. And of course you will need her as trading material
  2. many decades ago, I helped a sideline squeeze open a bar. I took her to a sign supplier and they had a huge lot full of pld outdoor signs from bars that had closed. The price for a sign from a old named bar was a fraction of the price of a new manufactured sign. Maybe they are doing the same thing here.
  3. It's 110 today in Vegas....
  4. My first trip to Pattaya was 2001 or so, and Buffalo Bar was dying then! I made a couple of trips there, and it was a bunch of old farts who did not show much friendship to a newcomer.
  5. I grew up in Seattle and it would rain 24/7 for a week and the total would be way less than an inch of rain. It would be just a constant drizzle and overcast. Very depressing...
  6. I live in Hawaii, and a lot of people have said that today.....
  7. More relevant? I was responding to the usually gold plating on the chip that acts as a connector when you insert the card into the reader. Which is the point of the OP.
  8. Yes of course, the plating is very thin - A few microns.
  9. As I posted there are other noble metals other than gold, Rhodium is one.
  10. Gold and a few other metals that do not react to O2 are almost universally used to plate electrical contacts to prevent that.
  11. I too have a mild astigmatism, but not enough to effect my distance vision, and of course, the brain automatically recognizes which eye to use when you view near and far things.
  12. Over the years, my eyesight deteriorated and I went to contact lenses, then to mono contact lenses, where one eye is for distance and the other for reading. But then cataracts set in, so I had inter ocular transplants using the same mono lens prescription. I now have 20-20 eyesight for both near and far and have no need for any glasses, other than sunglasses. Its like being 20 years old again (just the eyes)... A year later, my TW did the same and now, neither of us uses any sort of corrective vision.
  13. Actually, maybe 15-16 years ago, Hilly asked me to bring him some fresh Brussels Sprouts from the US and I did.
