Barry, sorry about the capital expenses. Just when you think you see a light at the end of the tunnel it turns out to be an oncoming train. Have some and maybe that will help.

Sounds like the Dads are having a good time at the World though without pictures it didn't happen.

Another day in the office which means too much caffeine and sugar. I hope it is a short winter or my posterior won't fit in the tractor seat come Spring.

For the last 3 years I have been privileged to be the man to coordinate the opening of new DDC threads and to officially welcome new members to the club. I still find it hard to believe that I have been performing these tasks for so long... through 19 threads! Flew by, actually. It's been a great honor!

Over the past few months I have found less and less time and energy to spend keeping up with the boards. I found myself wondering if there is someone else that could be enlisted to help or take over the responsibilities I have enjoyed thus far. This leads me to the announcement. I hope you will all agree with me that this person will more than adequately take these tasks and make it more than I could imagine Commencing with the end of the current thread, the man who will henceforth announce the reception of new members and create new threads is....

Cinderella's Fella (Randall)

I will continue to add new members through the end of this thread... but please start referring new members to Randall once the new thread opens. It's been a pleasure fellas!! Oh... and no, I'm not going anywhere! Just need to take a load off for a little bit.

Here's the soapbox, Randall.



Big announcement ownage
thanks don for all your hard work!!!

congrats on the new position randall!!!!

I had planned to take the van into the shop on Saturday morning because it was leaking coolant from a place that I didn't want to try to have to reach to fix by myself. Turns out that problem was a small hole in the radiator. The bigger problem was badly corroded coolant lines that supply heat to the back of the passenger compartment. The shop told me that Mazda issued a recall on this for states that put salt on the roads in the winter (Hello Wisconsin!). We bought it used, and I'm sure Mazda sent a post card to the original owner who promptly threw it away. The kicker is that, that recall expired in 2010 and we were on the hook for $900 for some dealer-only parts to get it fixed. Has anyone ever heard of recalls expiring?

The bigger issue was when we woke up on Saturday the house was cold, and the furnace was blowing cold air. I couldn't get it running, so I called a service guy. We knew when we bought this house 10 years ago that we were on borrowed time with that furnace, and it chose this weekend to kick the bucket. $3200 for a new one.

Then, to top it all off, our mainframe system at work decided to freak out Sunday night and lose connection to half of it's disks. So I had to deal with all of that mess Sunday evening and all day yesterday.

I could really use a Dole Whip about now.

Bright Side - I was able to use that 40% at Southwest to book some sweet airfare for the DDC!
$3200 for a furnace!!! i hope he pulled your hair too!!!!

Hey Dads!

Been away for a few days. Tried to scan, but WOW has everyone been busy. Happy Birthday, Anniversary and congratulations to all with events. Prayers for those in need.

Don, I am new here but thanks for your efforts. Randall, good luck with responsibilities. I'm sure there are over 700 of us ready to let you know how you're doing.

Philip, glad the days are getting better. Hopefully it was just overload. Enjoy the rest of your time there.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. Update on the van - it wasn't actually a recall. It showed up in the shop's computer as a recall, but it was actually a 7 year warranty extension. So even if this problem would have happened while it was still in the extension period, it may not have been covered since I'm not the original owner. Whatever. It's done, and the cooling system is working again. Which is good, because when those afterburners kick in, it starts getting pretty hot.
