This might be a thing out here but I've never seen a speed check sign for 65 MPH in upstate NY.

Makes me wonder how fast these maniacs drive on these freeways.

Right, there similar speed limits here as well. What I'm saying is how much speeding is happening if they have to check you at 65.

Spent yesterday and most of today with family. Haven't seen them in 17 years. Met the kids for the first time. It was pretty cool.

Ya know, it's hot as balls here and they tell us its the nice time of year

Now leaving virgin territory. It's a big olive tree farm being witty. Amazing how they grow all this stuff in a desert climate.

A quick note on manners. The locals are very polite, the other torists tend to be entitled assholes. Well, maybe just snobs or something. Not full assholes but close.

'Vark, Israeli kibbutzes have been growing olives for decades. If there is any place that's desert, the Middle East has to qualify.

And to do some "aluminum nitpicking," you spelled "they" wrong where I have indicated in red.

They call this a lake. Cranberry pond in Greece is bigger. Must be a water thing.
