    • Getting a Car?

      11 years ago

      fireworkpete

      Thinking about getting a car. Looking around at my options. Obviously haven't decided on anything specific yet. Just thought I'd sound out for some thoughts...

      Here are some of the vehicles I'm considering.

      BMW X6. Its not out yet, but I like what it has to offer.

      BMW 335i Lots of power, but good fuel economy also. Don't know if I'd get a sedan or coupe (pictured here)

      Infinity G sedan

      And now, for something completely different..

      Saturn Aura XR Cheaper, but not as much fun.

      So, thoughts etc would be appreciated. Ty

    • 710...?

      11 years ago

      fireworkpete

      A few days ago I was having some work done at my
      local garage. A blonde came in and asked for a
      seven-hundred-ten.

      We all looked at each other and another customer
      asked, "What is a seven-hundred-ten?"

      She replied, "You know, the little piece in the
      middle of the engine, I have lost it and need a new
      one.." She replied that she did not know exactly
      what it was, but this piece had always been there.

      The mechanic gave her a piece of paper and a pen
      and asked her to draw what the piece looked like.
      She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710.
      He then took her over to another car which had its
      hood up and asked "is there a 710 on this car?"

      She pointed and said, "Of course, it ' s right there."

      HILLARY'S FIRST NIGHT AS PRESIDENT



      Hillary Clinton

      Was sworn in today as President

      She has disposed of Bill and is spending her

      first night alone in the White House.

      She has waited several years for this.



      FIRST NIGHT

      Suddenly!


      The ghost of George Washington appears to her,

      and Hillary says,

      "How can I best serve my country?"


      Washington says, "Never
      tell a lie."

      "Ouch!" Says Hillary, "I don't know about
      that."



      SECOND NIGHT


      The next night, the ghost of Thomas Jefferson appears...

      Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"

      Jefferson says,

      "Listen to the people."

      "Ohhh! I really don't want to do that."



      THIRD NIGHT

      On the third night, the ghost of Abe Lincoln appears...

      Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"

      Lincoln says,

      "Go to the theater."



      .....Cheers!! p.

    • No water...

      11 years ago

      Well, we have no water now at my house..

      It appears that our well, has stopped working for some reason. Either something is clogging the pipe, or soemthing worse.. I'll let ya'll know.

      Peter

      Update: We have bypassed the iron filter (which appears to have plugged) and we have water again. Its very rusty, but atleast we have pressure. We are currently drilling for a new well nearby so my guess is that that distrubed something.
