Howie and Sandy,

Good to see you all back safe. How was the trip? Sandy and King, how did the new rig preform? Hope all went well for you guys. I just got back fro a trip also, drove thru Utah also and spent over $800.00 on fuel. And yes, CA was the most expensive for fuel.

Did you guys take any pictures of the trip?

Clark </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Hi Clark,

Yike's, I just found another fuel reciept for $85, so my fuel costs were $736

Yeah...when you buy it in those little plastic bottles, and all of them wind up with 1/2 a bottle's worth of water in them, laying around all over the place, I can see $3.00/gallon. (What my son and wife don't know is that I combine them all and put 'em back in the reefer with a tight lid).
</div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Sean-

Please don't give Rod any ideas. I can just see him pulling something like that now...great, looks like I had better start double checking for the safety ring around the lid !

xoxoxo,
Deb

Hey Deb

I not only combine, I refill.

I pick up all the empties and fill-em up under the facet, then place them back in the area where we keep the new ones. She never knows!

And Deb...nowhere in those vows did I read ANYTHING about a 'truth in-rebottling' clause! (Rod- keep THAT in mind, and watch very closely for anything Deb wants you to sign!).

See my other post. I worked this past Fri-Sat, found another 15 Redondo citizens that have no clue . We have some friends staying with us for the next week, their sleeping in the condo and loving it.

Have the next few days off to honey do...

Oh man...I took 3 days off vacation last week, and wow- I had more Honeydoos that a produce market. But it was fruitful (ahhh...a pun!) and I got to throw in some of MY own honeydoos in the process.

Garage is now officially Nascar approved...





Plenty to still do (I still have to build all the cabinet doors, move washer/dryer/reefer/waterheater, build replica Cal Speedway track around the top half of the garage, mount all my DJ lighting, tile counter tops- you know- all the little things). But I did get a whole bunch done! The last pic is the door I FINALLY got done- AND 3 coats of paint (my least favorite thing to do).

Hey...if anyone's a Nascar fan, Bristol is a Saturday night race this weekend, and we're up for a party that night- got the home berth that's empty right now, and room for 3 more in the cul-de-sac, so if anyone's game, I am! Come one, come all! We can make quite the night of it.

Sean

Hey CP!

Sorry to hear that #8 is your number (but we have converted to an AH product!)...and I'm not in the market for the blue pill yet either- I'm an old follower from the Valvoline days (OK...you owe me a dime, and that'll give me enough money after all the OTHER guys who I've had to persist at being a loyal fan from, and then I can buy THAT car!), and hoping that Mark can hold on for another year. We'll have the race on in full fashion is ya wanna drop by- including PitCommand!

Sean

56, I went to your link. It is all still very confusing. Seems like no one really has an answer. I don't know how trucking companies stay in business. I guess by charging a fuel sur-charge. Still, it doesn't make sence. You almost think they (oil companies) are sitting in a room and lauphing at us when they make the fuel prices jump around then we all complain and try and figger them out. Like they are playing a game with us.

I'm gonna go right straight out on a limb here and say that we need some regulation...I'm a bonafide Republican, but I'm sick and tired of the companies who get to do this type of thing where there is 100% demand. Companies gobbling up other companies and the SEC not giving a rat's patootee. Thank God the Chinese weren't able to buy Unocal...there was some sense that got plowed into that issue- how that happened- I don't know.

I am a firm believer that anything where 100% of the population (or really close- you know what I mean) needs a product, like electricity, water, or any other of other bare neccessities, we should have some protection by the government (that's what we pay them the big bucks for, right?). Powerplants? We need powerplants? Build them, or make it easier to build them-(screw the gray, blue, white, or whatever else plant, bird, or lizard, or even worse- tree hugger- that seems to get in the way).

Look at our CA energy crisis...where to start...dumba$$ govenor who didn't know his a$$ from a hole in the ground, and got us into 10-year contracts at a ridiculous rate, to energy companies taking their equipment offline to drive the price up- all in the name of trying to make the market competitive. WE get policed at the driving over the speed limit to not wearing sealtbelts, to making an improper right turn, to not having current tags- where is there any liability for these companies and politicians NOT playing by the rules of morality?

This country's going down the proverbial he!! in a handbasket if we don't start AGAIN with instilling some moral fiber into what we are, what we do, and what we stand for. Then, and only if we start NOW, could we ever hope that our offspring will exhibit some of the moral fortitude that we need as a country and as individuals. and I'm not talking neccessarily about joining a church (although I started there, but let's not 'go there' for the sake of this convo)...we all know (or should- THANKS Mom & Dad) the difference between right and wrong. It's downright insulting to us that know better some of the new stories that come about and what people AREN'T held accountable for.

OK...what else....that's enough...my 2 cents have been expunged.

Sean
