Car Update

Finally got a hold of the last honest mechanic in the valley. He can’t get me in until Friday morning. *sigh* What can ya do? Yes, for the record I’m still driving the damn thing. Roll the dice. Go for the gusto. No guts no glory. Damn the torpedeoes. Etc. Etc.

I’ll just carry extra coolant and a oven mitt. What’s life without a little gambling, right?

Hopefully, it will just be a leaky hose or something. But, I really can’t complain. The car is 10 years old (only 91k miles though) and has pretty much been bullet proof for the 7 years I’ve owned it. *knock on wood*

Site update… I’ve had renewed problems with the database. I’ve lost posts and comments when they for some reason re-restored my site from backup about 48 hours after they did it before. Anyway, I think it has re-solidified. No guarantees, but we’ll see what happens.

More football tomorrow. According to USAToday, BSU is favored by 8. I don’t know if I’d agree with that. Seems a little high. But then again, I would be supremely pleased with another 40 point blow out.

My team here at work is having a potluck tomorrow. Actually, the whole call center is (even though we aren’t even in the same building as the call center anymore, we’re doing it too). They’re calling it a ‘Tailgate Potluck’ for the BSU/OSU game. They’re encouraging everyone to wear their blue and orange, giving out prizes and crap like that. I can say with all sincerity that I have no doubt that I am the biggest bronco fan on our team. Just because I don’t paint my face or wear an orange fright wig doesn’t mean I’m not passionate about it. On the other hand, part of me just hates potlucks. I don’t know why.

Site update… I realize I haven’t written a “feature” piece in a while. Mostly been riding on the everyday minutiae of my rather boring life. That will change. I have a couple of ideas I want to get done.

So keep checking back. There will be more to read, I promise.

  1. Lemme take a guess J…Greg Dietz? If so, he’s the reason why I still have my Acura Legend with 97k miles on it. Not only are Acura’s bullet proof, but when you have a guy like him to fix it at ‘way more than fair’ rates, you can’t go wrong. Sad day when he decides to close shop.

  2. Must be in the air…

    So, my Jeep had a bad fuel pump last April. She had 150K miles and sometimes things just go out, you know? Took it to a “Repair Guy” here in Caldwell. (Got good word of mouth) He fixes it for a good price.

    Since then, everytime I would fuel her up, when I got home, I could smell the gas. Hmm. Oh well, no leaks. Everythings ok.

    Yesterday, Jocele calls and tells me that the jeep, which she just fueled up, is leaking gas like a seive. “what if someone drops a cigarette?”. Crap.

    Yup, its drip, drip, dripping gas. Take it back to the “Repair Guy” who is about 3 blocks from the hospital. 90 days, pal. So, I took it elsewhere. Wont know until Monday. Damn.

  3. I think it is in the air. Just had the ABS compressor go out in the BMW. Spendy repair… and Hurless Brothers can’t get us in for 6 weeks. The brakes still work, just no ‘antilock’. $500 for a *used* one… $1600 new. They recommended used, said they rarely fail. Ugh.
