Did you know that while the 168 and 194 bulbs are similar, the 168 burns brighter and doesn't last as long...
I've always been told I "Wasn't the brightest bulb on the tree", does this mean I'll be around for a long, really long time?

Same with me....and yes, sounds like both of us will be around for awhile.

This bulb issue came up last weekend.  I had a front side marker in the Rav go out.  Research showed that either bulb will work so I went with the 194 long life ones due to the amount of work required to replace them.  You have to remove the front wheel and the well plastic to reach up on the side to pull the darn thing out.  Did both of them.  Also did my daughters license plate lights (used 194LLs again).  They were a tad easier to get to.

I noticed this morning that one of the Prius front markers was out........Da***t!  No telling how hard these will be to get to.

The Prius side markers were very easy to get to...

I just broke a tooth.  I hate it when that happens.  So far no pain.  It'll be Monday before I get it looked at....I hope.   That tooth was acting a bit funny for the last 6 months.

During the 1500s, poor families would urinate in a pot and at the end of the day this urine would be sold at the local tannery to tan animal hides. Some families were so poor that they "didn't have a pot to **** in" thus the term.

Mind your p's and q's comes from English pubs and taverns of the seventeenth century. Bartenders would keep a watch on the alcohol consumption of the patrons; keeping an eye on the pints and quarts that were consumed. As a reminder to the patron :chugbeer:s, the bartender would recommend they "mind their Ps and Qs".
