Has anyone here ever read Cheaper by the Dozen by Gilbreth? I remember Adina had to read it in grade school and I picked it up and read it too. It was really inspiring.  This family decided to have 12 children and the father of the household was beyond impressive in how he ran his home and his life, how he didn’t want anyone wasting any time, ever. The way he thought and acted, I think I have wished I could be so focused and productive on a day-to-day basis. I should find and reread that book

As an only child, that was one of my favorites to read as a kid. There's a sequel focusing on the mom after the dad died.

We had some really good chicken tenders last weekend, with cole slaw and french fries and this really good...

Ooooh, raising KIDS. Never mind.

We've got one of those Raising Cain places here now. They put it clear across town, but I'm told it's worth the trip.
Just leave the kids at home.

Why leave the kids at home? They tend to love chicken tendies :)

Their flagship meal is "the box" -- chicken tenders, crinkle cut fries, Cain sauce, cole slaw, and Texas toast. It's a perfect fast food meal. I actually like it better than the now-fallen-from-grace Chick-Fil-A.

Newsflash: my puppy ate a sock of mine and I am pissed off because I thought we were over that already.

Nah, she didn't eat enough sock to get bad.

I am sure she eats worse things when I am not looking.

This week we got my daughter's car fully registered, insured, and inspected.
She is officially "on the road."

Gaaaah. I'm a bit nervous about this of course.

When my son got his license, we were going to start him out on small quick trips only, but a few weeks later I broke my ankle and needed a chauffer.
It was a perfect situation actually.

The girl has no such situation. She's got a license, she's got a car, and she's ready to go. Yikes. She even has a friend who got the exact same car, even the exact same color. The friend has already wrapped her car around a pole while texting and driving, so there will be no "twinning" for them.
Hopefully they both got the message.

Ya, world is far different than when we first started driving. Worst thing we might do is sift thru the box for the next tape to play.  Today, even if you dont do the stupid things like texting and driving, so many cars are a distraction now just to turn on the AC..

Yea, my 2023 Ford Escape ... HVAC controls are on the touchscreen, along with Ford Maps, Vehicle Settings, and of course the entertainment system.  Tho I do have to say, it is nice to be able to say "Hey Siri, play The Calling" and in just a couple seconds I get TheFatRat - The Calling (feat. Laura Brehm) playing.  I can also use the Voice Command button on my steering wheel to tell the car to tune to a specific AM or FM station, or an XM channel.

No voice commands for HVAC, sadly.

One of my best friends crashed his car against a dumper. By that, I mean one of those dumpers they use for mining and building infrastructure. He did so because he was driving in the wrong direction (my friend).

I am glad to leave you with happy thoughts.

What about voice control?

You: "Car, please turn on the air conditioner."

Car: "Air conditioner will activate after you focus your attention on this non-skippable ad..."
