I believe there are not near enough of us around that truly appreciate our National Anthem being performed with such respect and skill. Makes me sad..

Women telling me about a problem with a vehicle after they've heard noises for at least a week...

This takes place yesterday evening after dark...

Daughter - Dad, the van is making a noise when I use the brakes.
Me - How long has it been doing this?
Daughter - For a week now.
Me - Where's the noise coming from?
Daughter - The front of the car.
Me - Can you tell what side?
Daughter - No
Daughter - I need to get it inspected this month.
Me -  :censored:

I go outside and run the van around the block.  Noise coming from the passenger side front.  Metal sound on rotor.  Needs brakes.

Me - You do realized that if you would have told me this morning I could have had fixed by now.... :censored:

Me to Grandson - If you hear anything abnormal with a vehicle, let me know.

I don't know.  I'm getting the rotors just in case, but I usually replace them on a brake job anyway.  I find the pads are less noisy that way long term.

I always buy new rotors too.  I didn't even think they could be machined smooth these days since they start out so thin for weight savings.  For my car it's only about $30 for rotors so the savings aren't enough to make it worthwhile.  Part of the reason I buy standard American cars.  Guy at work bought an Audi A8.  Proud as hell until he had to have the brakes done.  $1000+    :D  Told you so, was all I could say to him.

So whose take do you like?  I rather imagine it's their take as well whether it's a band or some other singer.

Working in downtown San Francisco this morning and they are doing construction outside on the street. We are on the third floor and the entire building is vibrating from the construction. My desk is shaking if I had a glass of water it would be visibly shaking.

Point taken.  She should have been shot after that.

March 13th was my 13 year anniversary at work.
Boss gets a notification about it from HR.
No mention to me, nothing on my last birthday either. :(

13-13 doubly unlucky. Maybe better that you didn't hear directly from HR  ;D

I buy this... yes it's a go fast car.  8)  But I'm old enough to know better.  So, every Hyundai, Kia, Scion, ToyoNisSub, driven by a 20 something w/ a heart beat thinks it's an invitation to race?  BAAAAHAAAA!  Really?  You really think you have a chance in that little 4 or even 6 banger?
