I used to post videos to my Facebook mostly to show friends and family my crazy job and where I'm at.

I'll have to look into a Dash Cam or GoPro that can run Hands Free. Companies are getting very strict about people using mobile devices and I'm banned from have a Cell Phone within arms' reach.

If you're wondering, that is enforceable. Modern fleets have Safety / Event cameras that record in front of the truck and also record the driver. They are only supposed to send video of the driver during 'Events' like hard breaking or following to closely. It can also be set off just being on a bumpy road. If I hit the brakes to hard while playing with my phone I could be recorded and fired.

It would have to be a camera that I start before driving and records continuously and I edit or trim the video later when I'm parked.

This hard core hands-free rule is awkward because I used to use Audible on my phone, but this company doesn't want drivers to even be able to reach for a Cell Phone. BlueTooth Headsets are allowed, maybe I can set mine up to start or pause Audible.
Dude, you might have an interesting YouTube channel on your hands.

OMFG relatives vegging in front of Fox News. I'm not doing Thanksgiving with Politics. I have this holiday time before starting another job next week; I don't want to watch Network News. :smash:

I stepped out for a DooM break on my laptop. Kind of hoping one of my gamer cousins makes it here. For now, it's just aunts and uncles.

You know you got some cheap Bluethooth headphones when you connect to a device and the Chinese lady speaking English says “Connecched.”

Got into 23&Me and Ancestry.com discussion with relatives. That was interesting discussion and seriously a nice break from politics or religion.

I'm mostly Irish/English and Northwest Europe/Scandinavian. Some German.

I had a decent pair, but two months ago I got the Jabra Elite Active 65T and will never look back. I just recently charged the case for the first time. It was over a month without charging. It was amazing.

I've done this thing with sending DNA. Seems my genes indicate my ancestors been here a long time. Had some Irish in there though, have heard there was an ancestor that went pyrate for the british crown and took an Irish wife. My father being a ginger prob came from that, luckily enough I didn't get it and neither my daughter.

I have light hair, more of a dirty blonde, but when I let my beard go it gets a reddish tone. So weird.

Swede only spot it does that before you ask
You're a dirty blonde, so I know you're going to tell me anyway.
