    ICE fans ... it’s over. Ford Wants to Sell You an Electric S.U.V. It’s Called a Mustang.

    Today's Folk/Americana

    And it’s a concertina, not an accordion. :grandpa:

    The coffee drinkers club thread.

    If I’m not brewing at home and I’m on the road I still prefer Tim Horton’s, the best of the fast food coffees, imo. And the franchise seems to be expanding. Among the first pics returned from Mars:
