Sorry to hear about your basement. At least it wasn't a lot of damage and it could be fixed pretty easy. But you did save $1200 today!!!

One of them days

So, car didn't start this morning...no biggie, jump it, catch the train, go to work. I figure, at the end of the day, if all else fails I just jump it again and charge it overnight, right. So, after work, get to train station, as I walk up to the car...left front tire...flat. Not only is it flat, it has a real nice puncture in it. I have been meaning to get new tires anyway. So call my buddy over to jump me while I change the tire (for some reason I kept playing the scene from Christmas Story over in my head where Ralphie says fudge when he spills the bolts). So, I creep along on the spare, which is almost flat, taking as many back roads as possible, pull into a auto store, where they test the battery and determine...alternator! So guess what I get to do tonight/tomorrow? Change alternator and I just made an appointment for tires at noon. Did I mention it was my wife s car? Well, good thing I had it today.

Don't you love the way life likes to chip away at your Disney savings?

Thanks for the reminder Christian. I checked the site and a few things. The goal is for last year. I think we raised around $1,100. We should either start with a new goal ($1,500 maybe) or increase the current goal ($3,000?). Also the link to the DDC thread is to IV. How threads fly by. I would fix it but my tech skills are lacking. If we need to update the "spiel", I can do it. Just let me know.

I've always heard that every basement will flood. Just a matter of when. Sorry to hear about that Dave.

But congrats on saving a lot of money by switching to Geico. What kind of car is a resi?

Watch out Phillies, the Rangers are also on a 162-0 record pace! I would love to see my Rangers face Cliff Lee in the World Series to see that drama play out.
