I understand your post. Back in 1967 I was stationed at Andrews AFB, Md.(right outside of Washington DC) I was being shipped to Vietnam so we were moving. My wife was flying to Texas with our daughter (they were going to live with her parents while I was gone) and I was driving with our dog.

Not just in LA obviously. What is the thinking here? Let's put people into society who have had very little contact with society (if at all) recently?
That's really disgusting, the fact that they won't step up on their own and have to be threatened to do so. GM and Ford should be ashamed no doubt. Pfft, and GM after a bailout? Selective memory I would say. Tesla started weeks ago voluntarily and when I heard that, I had a newfound respect for...
This is a carry over from the Enclave forum.....
Type the word that first comes to mind from the word before; I will start us off. I think it will be interesting to see how people's minds work :thumb:
