The wishful thinking might be to think we could move forward
without the whine of "But how come THEY don't have to".

Never mind them, they will come along or be left alone at the store.

As (Last I checked) The USA was the LARGEST contributor to CO2
emissions, this is simply not true.

As we go greener and rely on less fossil fuel, more renewable
the more others will follow. And we are far from leading THAT pack.

China will eventually follow. They are still building infrastructure.
They will follow because it is a more advanced path, and it will make
economic sense.

You can not lead from the back of the pack. Time to step it up.

Now my Grandmother used to make some mean rum balls..

With all due respect to your sainted Grandmother, I believe I could give her a run for her money in the rum ball department. The secret is starting early. Now I know what I'm going to make this weekend!!!


She was also very VERY particular in which Rum she used. Unfortunately that is
one recipe I do not have.

Does anyone know how the firmware update is going? Its going on 4 days now.

From what I read on their message board, it sounds like they currently are(only) running a Linux project. No windows support.

The dentures were supposed to attach with implants

Do you still have the implants?

The implants failed. So nope.

My teeth are history.
I could not at the time afford to maintain them, (insurance in USA very
much limits how much THEY will have to pay), so they crumbled one by one.

It was painful at the time. Also painful when I finally scraped up enough
to have the remainders pulled.

The dentures were supposed to attach with implants, those too failed.
I find I am unable to actually eat using the dentures.

On the bright side, when the last of the rotting teeth left my mouth,
my taste buds returned in Technicolor. So no regrets other than some difficulty
with crunchy things.

So if you can, take care of those teeth kids. But you can only do what you can afford.

I recently spent 3 weeks with little to no internet, fighting different Wi-Fi's for tiny tastes of the interweb
Only to arrive home, start updating and then greeted with a ~12 hour outage.

I found it many things. Liberating is not one of them.
