    Now that I'm over 21 I watch closely to see if I'm slipping. Reflexes may have slowed just a bit but experience should make that up. I have noticed I cain't turn to look as I should be able to. Been busted up a few times. But I'm working on that. Off to the gym to try and loosen things up. 3 days a week. Might get something going.

    Yeah that... I need to start by going to the pool and work towards the other stuff. When I'm swimming I sound like a bowl of rice crispies.. but this weight is just making my knees worse. I would like to be riding a bike by this summer.. Haven't religiously rode one for over 8 yrs... Now that I don't smoke I am breathing alot better.

    The thing I find most frustrating about texting and driving is that the technology exists to stop it! I know most of you have heard about Poke'mon Go. well when you start this game it can sense how fast you're going and the little screen pop's up and says your driving don't play the game, of course the game has an override so that you can say you're a passenger but.

    An app that senses any motion over 5 mph should be placed on every teens phone! Make it not removable and not over ridable. If you're a passenger you can't text either! Also if you get caught by a cop with a phone in your hand and you are over 21 well court ordered app install! Just like breathalyzer for offenders.

    Several states have Cell phone laws but it is not a primary offense. meaning that the police can't pull you over just for cell phone use, they have to see other behavior or offenses.

    Every phone has a GPS in them today, all they would have to do is make it so that once the phones GPS detects it is moving 5 MPH or faster it disables the ability to text and use the internet. I could care less if the passenger can't use the phone, to many people have died because of drivers that text, surf the internet, facebook or what ever else they do. I would even go so far as to make it so the phone function could not be used with the exception of 911 service.

    These smart phones have only been around since 2007 and they did not have all the abilities they have today, but people act like they can't do their job if they don't have that phone pasted to their ear or they can't text every minute or surf the internet and facebook.

    We all got along just fine before 2007 without texting, surfing the internet and facebooking and we can make it so those features are disabled when the phone is moving and people will again get along just fine.

    Sometimes the thoughts in my head get bored and go for a stroll out through my mouth (or fingers). This is never a good thing.

    I always wait a few seconds before I go, when stopped at a traffic light. You just never know who might want to beat the Red light. Even to this day with so many modern bluetooth technology already factory installed in cars and trucks on the road, I still see people using their phones while driving. Very dangerous for all of us.

    I sure do miss seeing Yammer Dan's name on here. Never did get a chance to meet him in person, but felt like I knew the man pretty well just from interaction on here. I've often wondered how his brother made out with the situation he was going through when Dan left us.

    Prayers Up for Yammer!

    Same as you I never met Dan in person but had fun jabbering back and forth here. His brother ended up with 5 years, sentenced in 2017 with credit for time served he should be out soon.

    I have a friend who used to do this. He now has a metal rod inside his thigh. He hit a car in front of him. The driver was an a-hole for brake checking him but if only my friend was focused on riding his steed then it wouldn't have had happened. The car's rear camera even recorded him texting.

    I wonder if the video was even presented in court, if there was one.
