Dual Climate Control

While I don't find dual climate control systems in the relatively small confines of the typical cabin in a car to be especially useful, I know some people do. Long before such a thing existed, I recall a small deflector my grandfather wired to the central vent in his car. Granny was always hot and needed extra air. He was always cold and didn't want it. A simple thing - a thin piece of wood and a small wire - but effective none the less.

Now, if he had just gotten a utility patent on the idea.

American Girl Doll

And this is why I buy inexpensive radios... my daughter at the American Girl store. The dolls alone cost about the same as three Baofengs. And then there are the clothes and accessories - like a sailboat. (Luckily, we only got the doll and her grandparents are subsidizing this one.)

She got the doll on Saturday and basically has not put it down for three days. Even in full tightwad curmudgeon mode, I have to admit it is already money well spent.

Random and fun... There is a back story to why I am posting this - let's just say it involves a silly father entertaining his 4 year old daughter.
