We are officially in the Strada Dog Days of Summer, and encourage you to do the same.
Especially if you turned Canada Day into a long week end.
Did you know that Riviere Du Loup was a Dog Days of Summer hub several generations ago?
Is gridlock the appropriate name for traffic and congestion that is not moving fast, or going anywhere in a hurry. These past few days in the GTA its been a case of not going anywhere fast especially with folks taking a few days off to enjoy a long Canada Day week end.
There are moments when everything moves and flows, and other moments when its just snarled up.
The other day we had an opportunity to look at a Camaro Z28 up close in a showroom. It was black on black which for some reason does not work on the car. The thought flashes "Who would buy such a car?"...its barely streetable with those tires. Did we forget to mention 80K for a Camaro.
On a track it must be a ton of fun...and 80K might start looking like good value and a deal. But static in a showroom black on black...not so much.
Reminds you of the convertible on the used car lot in July..."its summer it will sell".
The other day we needed to convert a VGA outlet to HDMI which is the new VGA sort of thing. Here is the deal, you can get a VGA to HDMI converter which will not plug into your VGA outlet, you can get an HDMI coupler just in case, as well as an HDMI cable.
You sort of make all of this work, or think its going to work.
From a mechanical perspective its like having a 1/4 inch drive connected to a 1/2 drive ratchet, connected to a 10 cm extension then an adapter to 1/4 inch 20 cm extension. If it sounds like its all going to fly apart the moment you apply some force...we would agree.
With the VGA to HDMI it becomes a case of "no signal" at a most innoprtune time. Which reinforces that "if it looks a little flimsy connecting all sorts of stuff together...don't think you have the final solution...it might just turn into a "no signal".
