I'd rather give up my phone.  I'm not a phone person I don't care about talking on the phone.  With my computer I can still communicate if I need to.

20 things You Can Do to Save Gas While Driving
October 19, 2017

1. Drive less

2. Warm up your car for shorter lengths of time
- Idling your car for anything over a minute wastes fuel and omits large amounts of greenhouse gas.

3. Buy gas early or late in the day
- Gas is cooler earlier in the day, and more dense. As temperatures rise, gas density falls and you get less of it when you pump.

4. Slow down and drive steady
- Driving fast increases drag, which increases fuel consumption.

5. Monitor when and how you brake
- Braking excessively wastes gas.

6. Turn off the engine
- Turn off your vehicle you are waiting, excess idling is a major waste of gas.

7. Eliminate wind resistance
- Remove unneeded car racks and carriers.

8. Avoid gas stations near the highway
- Gas stations near the highway are usually the most expensive.

9. Don't wait until your tank is almost empty to fill up
- You'll be stuck paying for whatever gas you can find nearby.

10. Monitor your tires
- Under-inflated tires tend to wear out quicker and waste gas.

11. Tune the engine
- A properly tuned engine uses less gas
12. Change filters
- Clean filters help to keep cars running more fuel efficiently.

13. Use the correct motor oil
- Using the wrong motor oil can cause the engine to work harder and waste gas.

14. Turn off the A/C
- Using you're A/C too much can make your car a gas-guzzler.

15. Drive a manual
- Manual transmission cars are more fuel-efficient than automatic transmission.

16. Manage your speed
- Use cruise control whenever possible to manage your speed and conserve fuel.

17. Choose the best route
- The shortest route isn't always the most fuel-efficient way to go. Use the route with the least stop signs and stop lights.

18. Fill your gas tank near state lines
- Due to different tax rates, you may save a bundle just by crossing into another state.

19. Consider buying a fuel-efficient car
- Even several models of affordable non-hybrids can get 40 miles per gallon.

20. Download a gas app
- Using an app can really help you save at the gas pump - sometimes more than $0.20 per gallon.

I think I would like to be Jeff Bezos so I can go into space on my private rocket then I would go on a major spending spree and buy vacation houses all over the world.

For me it's pretty much the same.  No plans really.  I just know time is going to fly by until New Years.

It's late but thank you to the vets.  My uncle died on 11/11/2011.  He was a very proud Army man.

I think I cashed out last year.  I pretty much stopped doing anything except for posting and emails.

No tree at all.  Haven't had a tree since I was about 11 years old.

I didn't go out.  I only shop for groceries now.  I don't celebrate Xmas so I don't buy presents.
