<B>RANTS</B><br>Car dirty... HATE pollen and rain.<br>Brakes are now squeaking when applied... indication they may need replacing but not entirely a rant since I don't mind doing the job myself, just cost $ for the parts.<br>Have to repair 2 iPods this week, might as well upgrade the HD... Again not entirely a rant... actually it is because I'm doing the repair myself and buying the parts <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><B>RAVE</B><br>Coffee good and STRONG, spoon stands on end <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>It's Friday.

Back Saph...I concur.<p>Rants:<br>Sunburn last sunday...Rain all week<br> Alignment put things closer to where they should be (zero rear toe, front end looking straight, it was off to the right a lot) but the car felt floaty today on wet roads, but I put it in sport and all better.<p>Raves:<br>2/4 hop plants are already growing nicely.<br>Garden center lady is interested in buying my beer. Plan on making a Kolsch today. Crazy old Germans and their drinking...<br>
