Random Fact “O” The Day
Major League Baseball has managed to buy the domain names for all of its teams except three.
Giants.com is owned by the New York Giants football team . . . Rays.com is owned by a restaurant in Seattle . . . and Guardians.com is currently “for sale,” but apparently NOT at a price Cleveland wants to pay for it. (The organization DOES own the domain for its former name . . . Indians.com.)
Twins.com USED to be on this list. Since 1995, it was owned by a set of twins in California who refused to sell it for ANY price. But back in September, they finally caved. There’s no word on the purchase price, only that they came to a “reasonable agreement.”

- Park your car so it’s facing east. It gives you the most sun exposure as early as possible. So the ice should melt a little, or at least be easier to scrape off.
2. Try the sun visor hack. When you warm up your car and crank the defrost, pull both sun visors down. It traps the warm air down near your windshield and should make the ice melt faster.
