Things and More

Around Home with Jade
All going good in the White household these days. We are glad the water leak and heat pump replacement are behind us. Things are into a normal routine again. I take Jade to school in the mornings, and we leave the house around 7 AM. I do this because the school bus comes so early, a little after 6 AM. Jade rides the school bus home in the evenings. She gets home around 3 PM.

Jade came home last week with a 98 grade on a paper and was
very unhappy about it. She strives diligently for all 100 scores in every subject. She studies faithfully every day, even if she does not have homework. Jade's plans are to graduate from high school next year. Then she will return to Vietnam for a short time, then return to the US to go to college. She will be applying for scholarships along the way. She is an intelligent girl with definite goals and she has the drive and intelligence to accomplish them. It is a pleasure to have her in our home.

New Michelin Tire Design
When I saw this, I could hardly believe my eyes (See Picture). They look even more unusual when they are on a car. I think they are scheduled to go on the market in the near future. This is really "out of the box" thinking by Michelin.
Airless tires no less! No more flats, no more air valves, no need for air compressors, etc. Check out these links to learn more: New Jokes Added

Joke of the Day
Tom had never been on a fishing boat before, and he was now thinking it was the stupidest thing he'd ever done in his life. Who would ever have believed that seasickness could be this awful? With every pitch and roll, Tom wondered how he was going to survive the remaining six hours of the trip.

One of the deckhands came up to him and said, "Don't worry, young fella. Nobody ever died of seasickness."

"You've just taken away my last hope for relief," Tom said.
