Living in the Bowling Green, Kentucky area. I find excuses to be in Nashville pretty often.

Don't go through Nashville, IN with a modified exhaust.  They're really particular about that.  When I had the Abarth, I was concerned about getting pulled over if I drove it through there.

But if you go through there at the right time, check out Brown County Dragway.  I think its the oldest continuously running 1/8 mile drag strip in the country.

TIL that Android emulators are a thing. I mean, I was pretty sure that Android devs used something to develop and test apps on something other than Android itself but I didn't know that there are consumer level emulators.

I was trying to find a way to run Spotify Stations on my Windows 10 laptop. I was thinking I'd have to run something in Virtual Machine but you don't need to.

I downloaded BlueStacks which works great. It's like running a separate instance of Android on the Windows desktop. It even resized the window when Spotify Stations opened.

I wish I knew more on the Android dev stuff.

TIL cooking 13 pounds of bacon in advance of your family reunion this weekend makes your house smell really good or really bad.  Right now I'm not sure which.

Today i learned that the green painted aluminium miata hood, when left on sawhorses in the sun for a couple of hours will get hot enough to burn your fingertips. No lie.

I learned my impact driver doesn't like to be carried by the bit anymore when it feel battery first onto the 2 little toes of my clutch foot. I also learned when that happens on gravel, your toes break.

You can get 1" vet wrap at a feed store.  Self adherent elastic tape to splint the toes together.  Don't wrap them too tight.

Which begs the question, Why?  Are all the V8s sold, and they can't give away the ecoboost?  Are the Ecoboost so popular they don't bother ordering the V8s?

Interesting.

TIL the rumors of the business I work for being in financial trouble are still persistent and evidence is piling up that I should probably halt spending on my racecar antics and start looking for work again.

Great.

I need a rust-free red tailgate and rear bumper for round-body S10 / Sonoma. Not urgent.

YIL that baking the motherboard at 400 F for 12 minutes will re-flow solder sufficiently to bring my LG TV back to life.

I might go back in a couple weeks if I think of anything else I need for my garbage. (Really wanted a seat for my SN95 but I drove the SN95 and found a Caprice fender before I found a seat) Pull-a-Part in Louisville was the one I was at that day. I don't remember seeing anything the same shade of red as yours but I didn't check all the S10s.

I considered that. I don't know why they're staggered anyway other than cheapness of the previous owner.
