Extra fun fact: When I was a kid, I clearly remember the geography class where the teacher dropped the bombshell that the southernmost point in Ontario is further south than California's northern border.

Mind = BLOWN.
My house is at 46.92, so yes I am indeed further north than you are.

The 45th Parallel run just North of Salem, OR. There's a sign on I-5.

It used to be that the news would tell you what happened and you had to make an opinion on the subject. Now the news tells you their opinion and you have to decide if it even happened.

OK. That explains it. I gave up on those decades ago. Yes, chasing beads all over the car. I use these mesh ones year round because I seldom find car seats with enough lumbar support. https://www.amazon.com/Multi-use-Lum...ateway&sr=8-16
