Wondering why staying home matters, even if you feel fine?

No matter how old you are, this should convince you that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.  It is within us to end this with as little loss of life in the vulnerable as possible.
This is just beginning here in the US & Canada, and we are already behind the curve.


This is a great simulation and well explained. Run it a few times.

Inga, The m40i

Sold the motor home. Bought a new car.
Her name is Inga & answers when I say her name. She talks to me. She will do 0-60 in 4.4 seconds & easily go over 155mph. She is designed to ford 20 inches of water & has an 8 inch clearance.
Stops on a dime with oversize brakes.
8 gear transmission & can get 27+mpg in econo. mode.
Total of 1400 miles break in and 26+ mpg so far.
Seat comfort unmatched! HK sound system w/ all my 648 albums loaded in lossless FLAC.
Best trade ever!

2020 BMW X3m40i.
Click on her photo. She likes it.
