    We are starting to get together outside with 2 other couples all keeping our distance. Itís been a welcome relief. With my husband going back to work next week no reason for me to be totally isolated anymore. I plan to stay out of stores for the most part.

    Met the new neighbor today while I was mowing the rental property. No masks on anybody; we didn't figure we'd run into anyone. She stuck out her hand to say hello and, about mid-shake, both of us figured out we were not social distancing. Old habits die hard. We chatted for a couple of minutes and then she went back to moving in and I quietly went back to my place to wash my hands before I resumed mowing the lawn.

    This is the third residence move among people I know (well, now that I've met her, I guess) and it has not gotten less odd any time.

    Well, the responsible people.
    I guess all the biological parents in this world for the past four decades are irresponsible, because in order to have a child they weren't using a condom.

    I am trying again to understand: keyless car ignition starters.

    Why are they better again? What distinct advantage does this have over a key?

    One less thing for a person to carry?? I don't get it either. Imagine if something went wrong with the various keyless features. I can only imagine how much it would cost to repair.

    When your hands are full you don't have to dig into your pocket to get a key to open the door. You can permanently leave your key in your purse and not have to dig it out each and every time. When its dark and you are in a sketchy area, you can get into your car quicker rather than fumble with your purse. Just a few advantages. I wou;dn't have paid extra for keyless, but I enjoy the ease.

    Except you have to remember where the key actually is. I went with my husband just after I got this car to pick up a nephew at the airport. I like to meet family at security so husband dropped me off and went to remote park until we called him. Except he turned the car off while he was waiting and I still had the key with me in my purse at the airport. Ooops.
