Transformers 2

Megan Fox?: CHECK
Transformers?: CHECK
Plot?: CHECK

Ooooh, I'm going to have to go to the judges on that one. Judges?

Yes, By a 4 to 3 vote, we do have a plot.

Crass and juvenile humor which adds nothing to the movie yet cheapens the entire experience?: CHECK

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" is an OK movie. Not great. And this is coming from me... If there was anyone who was willing to take a hit for the Transformer team - it's me. But I would say, save your money and watch it second run or on DVD.

Wait, it has lots of Megan Fox. Who am I kidding, it was worth twice what I paid. AND it has Transformers. So I guess even the stupid fart joke humor can't ruin it all that much.

But I question the need for it. And once you see the movie, you'll know what I am talking about. I don't do spoilers. (Although I still can't believe they killed Sam, I wonder what they'll do for #3...)

But the stupid juvenile humor... Look, the movie already has hot girls, transforming robot cars, trucks, and airplanes, and lots of explosions. You already have locked in the boys and men. Why add the stupid dick jokes? The only thing that it does is lose the female audience, who now willl have absolutely NO desire to see Transformers 3.

Come on, there are some things in life that need to be sacred. Transformers should be one of them...

I give it a 3 out of 5.

Wolf River Greenway - my thoughts

Out in east Memphis and northwest Germantown they have some greenway bike+ped paths along the Wolf River, called the Wolf River Greenway.  It is pretty nice, and I have ridden my bicycle along it's entirety.  It is still somewhat in two main sections, the Memphis section in the west and the Germantown section in the east.   The ultimate plans are to have them all linked together and connected to some other areas as well, although those plans seem like they might be a while to completion (if ever).


My thoughts on the Wolf River Greenway are mixed.

Travato

We had been looking at RVs for a long time, focusing mostly on class B versions.  Class B RVs are on van chassis and stay within the van footprint, as a result the Class B RVs are very manageable compared to their larger siblings.  Most Class B can be driven in cities, parked in normal spots, and genarraly fit into tighter situations than you would ever consider for a much larger Class A or Class C (when most people think of RVs they are usually envisioning Class A or C).
We decided on a 2017 Winnebago Travato.  We chose the 59g floorplan and waited for the 2017 1/2 models to come out with their few nice mid-year improvements.

Memphis corrugated recycling failure

All right, maybe not a "failure"  - more like a deficiency.  However sensationalist headlines draw in more readers, and since you may be my only one - I need all the help I can get.

Memphis seems to have OK recycling programs for a city in this region, although still not that great in general.  One thing that I found frustrating is the requirement to cut down corrugated.
