    Phone number? Hmmm, tempting. :P

    4 more classes after this session, and I am done! This is just a bit much with the homework load. I hope my stress doesn't show to much with my posts.

    I was so burnt out studying yestesday, that I took a break. I am actually ahead with homework, so a day of rest was great. Well, kind of rest. I took my car to get an oil change, tires rotated, visor screw fixed (it was loose), and there was a rattling noise under the mainframe area. Well, the catalytic converter was loose, so they replaced it since it was under warantee. Oil change and visor tightened went well. The dealership broke my left rear wheel stud (whatever that is), so they gave me a rental. I was at that dealership for 5 hours. Then the rent-a-car had no fuel in it.

    Sounds like "Sod's Law" does that, Cand...

    Never mind - all that hard study will soon be out-of-the-way. You'll be able to take a well-earned rest.


    You deserve it, Candy Stair BSc... =D> =D> =D>

    I may be wrong here, but I'm thinking the studs are the "bolts" that stick out of the hub that your wheel gets screwed to. For obvious reasons, they're pretty stout (hate to have them all break off while doing 70 down the road!). Wonder what they did to break yours off???

    The paper work just states...
    ....71816 ROTATE TIRES - ADJUST TIRE PRESSURE LEFT REAR
    ....WHEEL STUD BROKEN - R&R REAR BRAKES TO REMOVE BROKEN STUD - REPLACE
    ....STUD
    Come to think of it, I think they did this before when they replaced my break pads.

    They charged me $64.99.

    I see I was charged for MISC. HARDWARE, CLEANERS AND CHEMICAL WASTE $4.92

    Change engine oil - $29.78

    Rotate tires - $24.95
    Repair work $3.41 <--- I should not have been charged for this!!!!

    Does that equate to $64.99? (tax was $1.93)

    I don't think this adds up. The rental was $30 bucks, which I better not see a bill for it on my credit card statement (since they took it for whatever reason). I did not get the extra insurance that they kept pressuring me to take.

    Left-over pumpkins recipe:
    "...The B-25 descended slightly and, just before the target zone, opened its bomb bay doors and from its belly countless orbs dropped...A single pumpkin impact sounds like a distant mortar round. First, there's the sight of the explosion and then the sound hits you with a "Fwump!" I'm told that a watermelon comes close, and a bushelful of zucchini can make you take notice. But the pumpkin is surprisingly concussive when it smacks dirt. Now, imagine a whole bellyload of pumpkins tumbling from a bomber and raining upon the target, striking within microseconds of each other: "Fwump, fwump... Fwump! Fwump-whump!..."
