It’s easy to hardwire auto and motorcycle accessories with a handy 12 volt to USB cable. Instead of screwing around with clunky cigarette lighter adapters you can purchase a special cable on eBay. These drop the vehicle’s 12 VDC line voltage down to the standard USB output of 5 volts. They’re available in Micro USB, Mini USB and other common connections…

Aficionados will recognize that sign as a longtime fixture of the soda fountain at the now defunct Steve’s Sundry.
Steve’s closed their doors for the final time Tuesday, December 31, 2013.
The dire warning above was intended for any unscrupulous patron that might have dared to peruse a periodical while seated. If you ever cared to read while sipping your malt it required two trips to the checkout line: Pay for your magazine; Return to the counter; Eat; Walk up front and pay for your food.
Never mind the fact that you could thumb through Wired for hours if you stood at the magazine rack.

Saw a great concert last night- plus a wonderful hometown story that I just had to share:
Natalie Merchant played a unique gig with the Tulsa Symphony orchestra this weekend at the University of Tulsa’s Lorton Performance Center. This is a great venue for this type of performance- wonderful acoustics and literally “not a bad seat in the house.” In fact, we were sitting in the balcony and had a wonderful view!
She opened with a familiar 10,000 Maniacs tune, belting it out with that powerful voice that became a signature of the early days of “Alternative Rock.” The evening progressed through her 30-year musical career. Along the way she had high praise for our local orchestra and how fortunate Tulsa is to have such a treasure. After the intermission the orchestra was slimmed down and the music became a bit more intimate. So intimate she actually reprimanded someone in the audience, “Please stop filming me.”
But the best was yet to come.
