I decided to drive one tank as light-footed as possible, just to see how many mpg I could get. Unfortunately, it got really hot and I had to turn the a/c on, and of course that really drains the power in town. So, here I was, sloooooowly pulling away very snail-like and sluggishly coming up to cruising speed.

Then this pickup truck pulls up next to us, and I notice they are not going away. After they got our attention, they revved their engine, making little mocking lunges ahead of… Continue

Is there some kind of conspiracy against the smart???

A story about the smart appeared all over the country today. In my paper the headline was "Micro cars can mean major repair bills, study says." The picture accompanying the article is a smart4two.

In the first place the only "microcar" in the article is the smart. The others are mini cars. If you read the whole story you realize that the smart car was far less expensive to repair than any of the mini cars. As you know, it is one of the least expensive cars to insure as… Continue

I put this in forums but it didn't get much notice. I thought it was significant enough to repeat here.

I read on MSN Money that the smart4two defies conventional wisdom by being one of the cheapest cars in America to insure. According to MSNM you might think that because of its size the smart would be regularly totalled in acidents, but in fact collision claims are low (as we already knew from first hand accounts at

Safety is attributed to both the… Continue

Can't Get It Up

I like to look at my engine every now and then. Not that I would be able to do anything to it, I just like to know it's still there.

First, though, you have to find it. I got out the manual to find out how to get to it, and of course it had the usual photographs with indistinguishable details. I tried to follow the written instructions, just imagining what the photos would have looked like if they had been big enough to see. I didn't get very far.

You're supposed to pull… Continue

Over on there is a post asking people to name the worst cars in the last 25 years. The Smart is getting trashed unfairly. I'm defending the little guy, but I could use some help. Let's gang up on them.

it has been a long time since I have checked my messages (obviously), but I just did and wanted to respond so you didn't think I dropped off the face of earth. It IS a terrible nightmare and while time is supposed to heal it really doesn't. If anything "you get used to it", but it still hurts and you still "think" about her EVERY day. And tht is good. That is the way it should be. However, it doesn't make it easier.

I am glad you went in and kissed her. As much as we sometimes think they are going to drive us nuts they are still very precious. We are born to die at some point so there is absolutely truth in the old adage to live each day as it may be your last -- because it may. Cancer is a horrible disease and unfortunately we all too many with it.
So just keep loving, kissing and telling each other you care and hope it goes on a LONG time.

Enough "doom and gloom". While this hasn't been the best summer (weather has made it short and business has made it long) I DID meet someone that I have enjoyed her company with ove the last 2 months. A soft shoulder REALLY helps and it makes the next day easier. Hope the gang is planning something for this fall and I will join in. If you hear of anything keep me posted. Thanks.
