    We are going to try again. Fenway is crushed and I don’t have the stamina for this stuff anymore.

    We need to move forward. But realize we can’t ignore our new reality.

    What has been tearing us apart stops now. Done. Not debatable.

    We can still discuss Covid. But tightly held to reputable updates .
    That info could be important here. Data, Openings, MBTA news, Airport, Uber, groceries, day care, etc.....

    This will be a guiding principle to start in regard to Covid and demonstrations:

    We're treating it the same as any other political discussion. It's not permitted unless it is directly related to hockey. If a player. owner, hockey media or some well known hockey personality makes a comment that's fair grounds for a thread. Some guy with a twitter account who likes to talk about hockey, isn't. If the thread becomes a partisan political debate it may be closed. Posters warned, thread banned or removed where necessary.

    Local businesses reopens, schools, current things including demonstrations..but..NON POLITICAL - all good.

    Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
    Via Post or PM.
    That includes flaming the Moderator Team or their activity.

    Actions will be at the sole discretion of the Moderation Team.

    If anyone feels they cant abide by this they are best off not posting.

    We all came here for one thing in common . Our hockey club. It is what bound us in good time and bad. Let it be so again.

    For those that want to discuss and debate other current Covid related things please go here:

    Fenway, you are shameless. How can you dangle a stacked smoke meat on fathers day.

    Your the man Wally, this was a class move , glad it worked the way you planned.

    If your going to a Portuguese pastry , you need to get pasties de Nata (my wife got me some for fathers day , she knows how to break me, I'm discipline but this is my Achilles heel, and she knows it) . Good luck.

    Six months ago, or so, my car started with a hiccup and a burp, but it started. Then maybe two months ago the radio was in and out and my heater controls froze up. I never replaced anything and assumed it was my battery starting to finally fade away. (2012 dodge 155k)

    today, there was a ding and my dash lit with a battery icon. But that was it. Then a half hour later the light returned, followed by another ding, and another and another and another. One by one, a few seconds apart, the abs, e brake, traction, battery, transmission, and airbag lights came on. The my ac cut out and went to full blast heat and the radio flickered

    so i shut the headlights off, turned off the radio and the touch screen display, and unplugged my phone. One by one the lights went away again, and then my transmission started holding gear and would go beyond third. Even manual mode did nothing.

    computers and cars do not mix. We have gone backwards. My father loves to tell me that in the 60s and 70s you could start a car and pull the battery and drive off. I long for those days

    I had the same thing happen with my car, although it was (sort of) my fault. Had a slow leak that started in January that blinked "low pressure" on my dashboard, but it went away after I filled the tire with air. Happened again in March, which scared the bejeezus out of me because it happened after my one and only trip out to the pharmacy. It then happened again in April, so I got the tire replaced at home ala Safelite for windshields - turns out it was a nail. But in doing so, I had to move my car in and out of the garage about 5 or 6 times (furnace problems too - had to move it for access). The off-on-off-on was the last straw for my 3.5 year old battery.

    TBH, that's probably a little on the young side for a battery. In another era, I might have tried to futz with it, getting a zap from AAA and seeing if it could hold a charge. But considering all the new gizmos on the car drain the battery, just like Charlie said, I guess that's about the life of the battery. I also didn't want to repeatedly call AAA, as I'd called them a few times in the last 12 months, and I hear they get cranky after too many calls. (Hadn't called them much before that....so, I guess on average I'm a good customer.)

    the traffic is starting to come from what I understand, it’s nowhere near where it usually is tho

    July should be a good month for the area if we keep Covid under control

    i am well aware. Battery was fine, fine, fine, and now it’ll be changed tomorrow since it gave me fits today. I’m not upset with the battery. What i dislike is the concept of computers in cars.

    i honestly have no idea what a decent battery life would be. I had guessed 5-7 years for a good one under easy conditions

    either way, i was overdue for this. I’m just waiting for the spark to go. It has never had plugs and wires replaced either, but when it’s time for that it just might be the end of my run with the car. It’s a pretty big job unfortunately.

    You can hold out for 5 years on a battery, but that's best case scenario , if you push it beyond that , it's on you. All depends on how you use your vehicle. You can roll the dice if you can deal with the consequences but it's a question of time . If you don't see yourself unloading the vehicle any time soon better to spend the money for the battery before you f*** up the alternator or the starter and turn a small maintenance expense into a major headache.

    Working at the exes house this morning. Scheduling got weird so I’m here with the kids. Toasted up some waffles for them and then realized after that they are out of syrup.

    They are not going to be happy when they stop fighting and come downstairs begging for waffles.

    No whipped cream, i checked for that one. I didn’t consider the Nutella though. They will most likely have that here somewhere. That’s one thing they will not run out of

    I may be banned from Vermont and Canada for saying this, but I'm a hard "no" on syrup on pancakes/waffles/french toast. Butter, powdered sugar, whipped cream, straw/blue/raspberries are acceptable (not necessarily all of them, just suggestions), but syrup is too sweet for me, especially in the morning. Yeah, I know those other things are sweet as well...but liquid sugar is different to me.

    I also can't take sides in the pancakes/waffle debate. They're both round disks of carby goodness, and I can't bring my self to have strong feelings for one over the other.

    BTW, you may have whipped cream, and you just don't know it. If you have heavy cream, a little bit of vanilla extract, some powdered sugar (granular works in a pinch for small batches), and some elbow grease, you can whip it into actual homemade whipped cream. Much better than the aerosolized Redi-Whip.

    I'm so happy I could cry.
