Power Push Cart
It is better but it is not a very good one.
I was able to play 9 holes today.
I walked with the power push cart.
I still walked 10,000 steps.
Enough workout for Sunday.
I took my other car out and filled it up. Unfortunately it take premium gas ... fortunately it is only $3.259 at Costco.
Can you tell what make of the car this is?

I see more and more restaurants adopting to Kiosk based ordering.
This is to reduce the need for people and reduce problems associated with money handling. Japan has been using this machine based ordering system for along time. US is now is catching up.
I have know him for a long time.
He moved to Arizona with his wife.
He came up here for Lenny Wilkens charity gala.
It is sad to see that this will be the last year for LW gala.
Ga-Ma-N is a Japanese word that has no word in the English dictionary. It is sometimes translated as “endure”, “persevere” and “tolerate”. But those words are not describing how the word is used.
When a child falls and hurts himself, the child usually cries. At that point, parents may tell the child to “Ga-Man-N”. What it means is that “we know you are hurting, but do not show that to the public. Keep it to yourself.”
Why would anyone “Ga-Ma-N”?
By Ga-Man-N, you are showing how strong you are. The act of Ga-Ma-N or being able to Ga-Ma-N is considered one of the virtues in Japanese society. If you cannot Ga-Ma-N, you are considered weak. I guess this comes from the samurai society.
There are a lot of things people want to do and want to say. But in Japanese society, non-action or silence (Ga-Ma-N) is believed to be more preferred. Japanese do not like direct conflict. But then something passes the point of being Ga-Ma-N, you will see another side of calm. Let’s try not to get there.
PS: When you pass the line of Ga-Ma-N … People say “Ga-Ma-N Dekinai”, “I cannot hold it anymore.”
I would not hire people driving the car with tires like this.
But that is just me.
When you come to job interview, you dress up.
When you come to work, you dress up in business appropriate attire.
Your company car represent your company.
Those are the things I look at to judge the company.
The the service car shows up with the dinged car with worn off tire, you really think twice about using the company. Or you just care about the price?
It is a great feature on our new company van.
You can turn the monitor into a iPhone screen.
I would love to have this in my car.
