                   I have to pull the spindles off Geri's PT cruiser and
replace the wheel bearings. Typical chrysler crap. They went out when it hit
30K but have been putting it off because you have to press the hub out of
the bearing then the bearing out of the spindle then back in the same way.
Real cars have hubs that bolt in.... Real PITA....

                   Cool. Geri has me going the other way. She has really
screwed up my feeding schedule so I end up snacking too much and that means
bad for you snacks.

                I'd love 82* .... It barely gets that cool at night here.
It's back to 106* every day here. Looks like it's going to be one of the
hottest summers on record. Been over 100* every day for two months and we
still have two months of 100*+ weather left. And to make it better the dew
point is always 60* or better so hot and humid....
