Been mostly watching stuff  
Today is another anniversary. But it's also a work day so we can't do much. We will celebrate later on this year but here's to 22 years and 4 months. The rain finally stopped for a bit the day before yesterday. It was nice to have some sun finally. During our free time Chris and I have been having fun watching dash cam videos of crashes on you tube and videos of people that fight back against criminals and win. But the dash cam videos have mostly been from Russia and those suck and are boring. It's usually the same stuff over and over. Turing from a non turn late and hitting the person in the turn lane. Not using breaks when you know an accident is coming. And hitting on purpose when an accident is coming. We've learned two bad words watching those. It's been hard finding normal ones in America/Canada probably because North Americans just don't use a lot of dash cams. After that annoying frustration I finally had a great idea. "Search for Australian Dash cam". Other than trying to get used to the rules of driving on the left I think we hit gold. There are a decent amount though not listed in compilations for some reason, and they are great. It's funny to me how angry Australians get on the road and there's some messed up stuff that makes for entertaining watching unlike the North American ones. It's just so interesting. So we've been watching those. Some of the best fun we have is trying to figure out who was wrong or what exactly happened.

So we finally had a garage sale yesterday. I've been trying for three weeks but haven't been able to because of the weather. We did ok. Got rid of some things so it was good. But we had a rain storm come and we had to close out an hour early. Darn it. The radar was totally clear that morning. I hope we can try again next week and start to get rid of some of the stuff that was my mother's. Pixar's Coco is on Netflix now so we watched that. It wasn't bad. Not one of the best but different. But I could relate to so much of what happened being that I'm from a Latino family. I might watch it again and look at some of the details of the backgrounds this time. I don't know what the short film was that came with this one because they aren't included on Netflix. I wonder if Pixar will make a DVD release of all the shorts. An updated new one since many have been made since the last compilation of shorts.

Happy 22 year and 4 month anniversary! Too bad work kept you guys from fully celebrating it I’m glad you at least found something to do during your free time. I don’t usually watch dash cam vids but a few did catch my eye.

I’m glad you thought Coco was alright. I enjoyed it watching it in theaters, so many cliches I ordinarily could care less about but they work them out quite well.


There was no Pixar short but a Frozen short involving Olaf trying to understand Christmas. Other than a darkly humorous song by Olaf there’s not much too it and is anything but short, like 30 minutes or so.

Thank you. Yeah, well we hope to check out that park I told you about in the email. I hope it's one of those no one knows about and we can get a beach all to ourselves. That would be great. Yeah some dash cam vids are better than others. I think we almost have enough footage to make one from our own experience since we live in the state with the worst drivers something interesting always happens.

I was actually quite amazed how accurate the film was especially portraying the matriarchal society with the dominant oldest sentient female as head of house hold. They are a bit scary but it's really like that.

Oh this was the movie! I heard about that. That people were leaving the theater because they hadn't paid for an Olaf movie and they forgot the meaning of the word "short". I'm glad I didn't sit through that but sucks this movie got ripped off having a short then.

I haven't seen Coco. I might watch it on Netflix if it's still on there in August. That is the next time I will have the TV to myself for a while.

It's on this month I know. I'd watch it while you can because Disney and Pixar movies never stay long. I'm glad I saw Cars 3 when I did because it's gone now too I think.

Happy anniversary!

Haha, I'm glad you hit gold with the Australian dash cam videos. Yes, there is a fair amount of road rage. It never used to be like that. You should try New Zealand as well. I saw a good one from over there. It was mounted on a truck and showed all the reckless driving over there.

They've been very funny and interesting. A few are just amazing or insane. The truck ones are the most interesting too. I'll have to check and see if I can find any for New Zealand.
