Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:
The California DMV Is Making $50M a Year Selling Drivers’ Personal Information
“DMVs across the country are selling data that drivers are required to provide to the organization in order to obtain a license. This information includes names, physical addresses, and car registration information. California’s sales come from a state which generally scrutinizes privacy to a higher degree than the rest of the country.”
Gobbled Out: 1 In 4 Americans Are Tired Of Traditional Thanksgiving Food
“A new survey of 2,000 Americans has revealed that more than a quarter (26%) have grown weary of the usual Thanksgiving food options and would like to see some new cuisine on the menu this year.
It should come as no surprise then that 45% of the survey’s respondents say they’ve already spiced up a Thanksgiving by cooking non-traditional food for the big meal, or plan to do so in the future. Moreover, 43% say they would be open to celebrating an “alternative Thanksgiving” this year.”
We are back to a small traditional turkey dinner this year. For years we have had a tradition of having crab legs for Thanksgiving. Last year we tried that and my Dad just cannot crack the legs anymore. This meant my wife and I had to do his and between cooking the legs in batches and after cracking his, our crab legs were getting cold. It just wasn’t enjoyable anymore. With his condition so badly deteriorating he doesn’t know Thanksgiving from any other day anyway.
