    Same to you, patruns! Nice family you have there...... :lol:
  • Happy holidays all, hey Tim, do you know which GPS Santa uses? Must be a pretty sophisticated system to plan that route with all those stops avoiding traffic, red light cameras and finding those POI for the reindeer rest stops and necessary Santa pit stops (after all the milk and cookies :lol: )

    Santa uses that hard to find Rudolph model with the famous "Rednose" antenna. Happy Holidays all!

    I'm sorry, Santa's lawyers have me under a strict NDA and I'm unable to disclose that information. :lol:

    I have seen the consumer version of this system in Amish country around here :lol: It's called "The Horseknowstheway" and it uses no batteries or vehicle charger but does require some clean up :shock:
  • Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone!
  • Considering what his new tricked-out ride looks like, his GPS must be fully integrated with the avionics and flight control system:

    ...and feeling older than dirt with each passing day........ I even remember No. 2 pencils with erasers on the end. I keep one on the wall along with my abacus and Esso road map, In Case of Emergency! :roll:


    Enjoy the day.
  • ...and feeling older than dirt with each passing day........
    Still beats the alternative IMHO

    We are grandparents too but now we go to their houses for the hollidays 8)

    Hope you and yours enjoy the day too!

    I find the principal difference between me and dirt is that dirt's knees don't ache like mine do. As for number two pencils and abacus- how many of you have an analog computer that looks like a ruler but the middle section slides back and forth? I show mine to some of my younger colleagues, with a preface that I have a computational device with infinite precision. Hope you all have a very peaceful holiday!

    You mean a sliderule??!! :shock:

    I used one in university (talk about old!) to calculate answers to math problems.

    Took hours and lots of paper to do what the basic calculator can do today in seconds!

    Tell me about it, but when I stop and think about it between the two them mine are over 120 years old :shock:

    Without a detour on back roads through the woods.

    Yeah, I saved a bunch of them from my elementary school days in the 50's. The erasers actually worked, unlike the ones on today's pencils that mostly smear. Talking about feeling older, I remember when we had 3 rooms and a path, instead of 3 rooms and a bath. Fully equipped with Sears catalogs...
