McDonald's and rest areas are fabulous because one can eat on a budget, get free internet for your chromebook, make free phone calls on the chrombook, look at the map, etc. and their restrooms are always clean and usually open 24 hours.

No one has ever, ever said anything to me or given me a look for using the rest room without a purchase or resting in their parking lot.

Seriously, I love the place.

Ronnie can eat there inexpensively, as well.......he loves McDonald's, too, and starts crying when we get near the drive-up.

Filet-O-Fish Friday is our very best favorite.

The interstate rest areas are lovely for a nice dog walk, too.

Also, the people at Macs are friendly and let me use their electric plug to charge up my phone or chromebook.

I am really against paying a high price for the use of a cell phone--right, it's highway robbery........always shooting for free.

Ranting against cox cable, the biggest bait and switch in town, another time.

Twilight In The Park, San Diego, California....Balboa Park.Free Concerts

I took this vid last year on my phone of Mike talking about twilight in the park.  He is the one who started the whole thing.  I do not know if you are familiar with it but it is so fun, free and it is great for the entire family.  It is a great way to spend a summer evening in San Diego.  

I know he was trying to promote the whole thing because a lot people just do not know about it.  The bands are really good too, in fact they are quite diversified......everything from blues, to big band, to country rock, classic rock.........The Coronado Big Band........Sing, Sing, Sing..........you won't believe it.
