    Just unplugged laptop again. Something about not being full on comfy with a plugged in device sitting on my lap in a thunderstorm with lots of ground contact lightening. :rolleyes:

    Unplugged my laptop before we left for vacation a couple of weeks ago "just because". Glad I did because we received an email notification while driving back that our area had a blackout. (Probably from everyone using their AC. Yeah, it was THAT weekend.)

    I bet the greens keeper for this course south of the Twins was just crying this afternoon.

    Holy cow ISU has a bunch of fees that they hit you with.

    It adds up to more than the listed price? I remember paying for the cheap health care at student health, only used it once when I broke a finger playing flag FB. I think I remember paying rec fees but those facilities are way nicer than when I was there. FB and BB tickets were my highest non academic expenses billed through ISU. Beer was probably my highest overall non useful expense. No @cowgirl836, or @BoxsterCy spread sheet to verify this though. When does the son move down?

    Beer and non useful do NOT belong in the same sentence!

    Yeah, student health and rec fees are over 500. He already has insurance. The other fees add nearly a grand over the tuition and room/board.

    21st is moving day. Guess I better clean out the pickup.

    Where is he living? Dana House probably isn't that attractive to a new student...

    Right next door in Welch. Dana was full. He doesn’t need co-Ed dorms. Told him there is enough women just next door and unisex dorms kills some drama.

    During my orientation they said all this stuff was free because I paid for it in my student fees or whatever. Dad had a hayday with that, pretty sure thats not the definition of free.

    Mrs. Velo saved some samples for me in the freezer. They were all of ping pong ball and golf ball sized but much of what fell was smaller. Watertown had tennis ball sized hail and Delano had some grapefruit sized hail.

    Both of those are just west of the TCs.

    Been a long time since I’ve seen @GTO. Anybody heard a peep from him here or other social media?
