  • Well my recent many road trip went well mostly. The meeting was great' the donuts were great; the shopping for little cars was not good - at least the Wal Mart and Target had very little space for single Matchbox models - Target looked like it was not planning to keep any Matchbox in stock. The "mostly" came on the way home when I made a pit stop - grabbed some snacks and came out and the hamster van would not start - not a peep! Last time it did this the starter relay had shorted out. Waited for a mechanic who was driving school bus - about the time he was available I tried to start it one more time and it started and I headed home - was a bit frustrating as I was over two hours from home - fortunately at a C-store and not sitting out in the middle of no place and they were very nice and helpful. So today check with my mechanic and see if it is the relay again or something else going on.

        Lol, now there are people who suffer injuries from typing so much on the internet and also I hear that cellphones can give you brain cancer. The new 5K? is supposed to be harmful.
        Due to the recent budget cuts,
        the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
        current state of the economy, the light at the end
        of the tunnel has been turned off.

              Are weather wasn't so good, overcast, mid 50's, well below average, and a cold wind blowing, Tomorrow is suppose to be like 64, but that was the same guess they gave us for todays supposed high, which was obviously wrong. Wonder if Friday will really reach 71 like they claim.

                  Talked to my local mechanic today who replaced the relay a couple of years ago. Like most small town garages these days he is limited to what he can do when it gets into the electrical stuff. His suggestion is to bite the bullet and take it to Hyundai and let them put it on the computer to see if there are other issues going on in the electrical system that causes the starter relay to short out - and then after a period of time seems to work.

                    • Today was nice, sunny and low to mid 60's, though I did remember to grab my portable heaters to take to work this chilly morning, at least it was comfy in the kitchen where I was working.

                        • We had a rain front push thru yesterday, nothing to write home about, but it is windy today. I might almost think it is March.
                          The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

                          Thank you for your understanding.

                          • Today it is supposed to get up to 36. There may be some snow showers.
                            If it isn't a NASCAR diecast, chances are, I won't get it.

                              Same here. A course if my calculation is right I live only three hours from you.
