    I usually keep loose change in my ashtray.

    The idea of piling butts up in the cupholder is DISGUSTING!!!

    It's going to be hard to get that nasty visual out of my head.

    Mine has both ash tray & cigarette lighter, but a lot of newer ones have eliminated both.
    Still, if you smoke buy one that does!

    Weirdly, my car has a cigarette lighter but no ashtray. I guess the Germans want you to flick butts out of the window?

    The weather forecast has been revised, and it is now supposed to get down to 39 tonight. I have NEVER put on the heat in May but the a/c is flipped to heat for when it gets below 62 in the house (it's at 65 now).

    A lot of electrical devices can plug into the cigarette lighter. I think I have the receptacle, but no actual lighter.

    It's less disgusting than throwing them out the window.

    I helped a friend prepare and serve a proper English tea as a fundraiser for the local library yesterday. She made everything from scratch including the bread for the finger sandwiches, the clotted cream and strawberry jam for the scones, and a Dunbar cake soaked in peach schnapps. Very pretty table settings. Afterwards she gave a slideshow of her trips to England and Scotland while I cleared and boxed up everything. By the time it was over, everything was ready to be loaded into her car. This is the woman who invited me into her home the summer I unexpectedly found myself between houses, so I would do anything for her. Great fun.

    But better than the alternative, right? And I did mention I'm an ex-smoker, right?!
