What a peanut butter beverley situation.

That sucks Matt... And the worst timing too.

Is it possible she could just walk everywhere from now on? Then you can still go to WDW.

Matt, see if you can't find one at the junk yard/wreckers. You might have to pull it yourself, but it should be way cheaper.

That stinks. Definitely not something you can put off at this time of year, either.

Happy 4th, everyone! Sitting here at the comp, trying to stay cool and listening to the old Schoolhouse Rock patriotic songs. Heading over to the BILs place in a bit for breakfast, followed by pool & beer. He's a better player than I am (by far), but it's still a fun way to while away the morning.

AFAIK, the local fireworks have not been cancelled - I'm kind of hoping that they are. The dewpoint is past 70, and the high for today is supposed to hit close to 100 - before the heat index. It won't be better at 9:30 tonight - though supposedly the heat should start breaking soon. October cannot get here soon enough for me.

Sorry to hear about the fireworks cancellation. They have ours as we shoot them over the river.

I have heard of these people. Strange tribe. So, you won't be giving them agendas, but you'll still have them on your phone, which is the most important.

It would be a big detour, but you are welcome. It is called Miller House.

It has been awhile since I have had Woodford Reserve, so I may go that route. I do like Maker's Mark, and was tempted to try their new one, but I think those may be best tried at the bourbon bar first before I purchase the whole bottle.

Could be worse Virginia has every police officer and fire fighter out looking for anything that is illegal to set off. What happened to our independence and celebrating freedom? We can't eve light off decent fireworks, geeeeeeeesssse!

It is pretty disappointing, But I would rather the car was in good shape. You have to take care of your responsibilities first.

That sucks. If you know for sure that the compressor is the problem, you can probably pick one up for about $200 and change it yourself then recharge the AC system. Not that hard. Although Dave might not like us suggesting that a novice try something like that.

Fireworks are cancelled here... and they were cancelled about a week ago. Everything that's supposed to be green seems to be brown and some dumb beverly neighbors were setting off a nice big display last night. I was watching very closely, but not because I was enjoying the show. I probably would have called the Sherrif department, but I had just returned home from an evening at the county fair, and when I left, I had just finished talking to a deputy who was also getting ready to leave. And he lives just a few miles past me going down the same road. Thankfully, the fireworks stopped soon after I saw them start.

Or, I could go with some Hennessy cognac, a favorite. Or, the best drink in the world - ky bourbon - maybe Woodford Reserve or try my relative's blend - Basil Hayden.

Any thoughts?
Woodford is really good. I'm a Scotch and Irish guy. Bushmills Black is really good
