    What's an automatic? 😂

    We only drive manuals in my house and it's getting harder to find a well-equipped truck or SUV with a stick. The wife refuses to drive an auto so I told her to take good care of her present mount.
    I believe it's getting harder to find any kind of car with a stick lately, not just SUVs.

    Fun fact, cars with stick are usually 1000KM (~600$) more expensive than the automatic ones.

    Amazingly back in the 70s there was a female, African-American at that, who used to host the NFL pre-game show on CBS(?). Her name was Jayne Kennedy and she was drop dead gorgeous but she knew her football.
    Well, she was some 30 years ahead of her time for sure.

    i feel strange when i drive a car without a clutch. When i drive my sisters car, i mistakenly press an invisible clutch pedal that Isn't there :P
    I once drove a semi-automatic. You have a stick just like you're used to, but no clutch. You just release the gas pedal when you want to switch gears. Now that car was a definition of a PITA. Every once in a while I'd the brake thinking it was a clutch, nailing my face to the wheel.

    So the GF loves her Google Home and drives me nuts with it. And in the interest of being a sucker for punishment, I'm getting her two Minis for Christmas - one of her kitchen and one for her living room. My Alexa is left in one room and her Home is left in the bedroom.

    She was one of the pioneers. Very classy and knowledgeable lady. Lots of people forget that Robin Roberts covered a ton of sports on ESPN before landing on ABC, too...
    Maybe someone a little older can help me out but I believe Lynda Day George preceeded Kennedy as a football host.

    Older VW Bugs had those semi-autos. You're right, they were a PITA.

    Quite likely...but from a minorities perspective, I remember Kennedy first.

    Wow, go figure that taking my laptop battery out and then putting it back in made it charge again...after I have spent $120 for a replacement one. I'm glad that it's working but I feel silly since I didn't consider that option before.

    It is amazing and the fact that it only took 1 lens over the trend of 2 is well done by Google. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your shots from it eventually.

    i think what killed it for me was that it didnt have a headphone jack. i was a fan of the first pixel but since the pixel 2 doesnt have a headphone jack its a no go for me
