Help the Ayers Family


Sadly, this is not a typical post about gadgets or my latest Amazon purchase. This week my circle of friends lost someone who was also a father of four and whose wife is also one of our friends.

On Wednesday, Bradley Ayers unexpectedly passed away, leaving behind the four children and wife he adored. If you can, please donate in order to help his children make it to his funeral and help his wife relocate closer to family. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Why do people in the South wave when passed on the road?


I should have posted this one a very long time ago. Reviewing another post reminded me that not everyone traveling through will know this. It you drive through the South, especially in Alabama, and you’re not from the region then it may seem a bit strange your first time.

The answer isn’t a major mystery.

They’re just being friendly.

Wave back, if you have a chance. It doesn’t require a big wave. Raising a couple of fingers off the wheel for a second or a nod is just fine.

And don’t worry if you miss it or just don’t feel like waving back. Nobody’s going to turn around and corner you (that’s a form of thought caused by very bad movie stereotypes).

It’s just a common courtesy.

That’s it.

And yes, the S is capitalized on purpose.
