In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

State License Plate Designs

When I travel to the US, I am always amazed by the number of different license plate designs there are for some states. In Canada there is usually only one plate design for each province, but some of the western states seem to have dozens of different styles.

Finger Lakes-Suggestions, Please.

My wife and I, along with "Jack", the GPS, are planning a 5-6 day trip through the Finger Lakes District. We've never been before and would appreciate a few suggestions on where to go.

Browsing/Banking when on the road

Greetings,

This message is prompted by Amazon's Daily Deal (the Bonus Deal) today ending at midnight. It's for either of two refurbed Chromebook models with lifetime 200MB/month free 4G access through T-Mobile. (Interesting: it's sold by Woot but Fulfilled by Amazon.)

Gps with traffic (chicago)

I've been a member for awhile and I've used both Garmin and Tomtom. I found out this week that Garmin no longer has traffic for Chicago are. It's only available in some suburbs, like Tinley Park, Niles, Mt.Prospect.I need a new Gps that gives me better coverage of the Chicago area.
I need this cause I drive a truck. I dont want something that need to use cell phone to work.

Correction to Speed Camera List

The speed camera listed as Speed 30-Jones Bridge & Montgomery in MD Chevy Chase is no more & should be removed from the list. This is in Montgomery County Maryland.

As the speed camera on the other side of the road was removed some time ago, so was this one when the road was narrowed & islands were installed to control speed better.
