Friday Rants & Raves - Independence Day Edition

Start on a high note this weekend - Raves first!

RAVES:
Drove in some major-league fun "twisties" last weekend
(If you're ever in SW Wisconsin - Try Hwy 27, 14, & 19 between Madison & near the state border - lots of nice, sweeping curves, elevation changes, & beautiful countryside.)
Lovin' my new Summer Tires
A/C system in the R is pretty darned good, considering it was designed by peeps who live near the Artic Circle...
Did some fishing

RANTS
Holy Heat-Soak, Batman! (Temps here in/near triple-digits most of this week)
Did some fishing, but dang little catching

ON TAP:
Now - Coffee & really good chocolate/almond croissant
Tonight - Guiness & Steak on the grill

Vio - Either you're starting to think like me or I'm starting to think like you - Don't know WHO should be more freaked-out by that

Cosmic convergence, perhaps?

Rant:

Boston Volvo has retarded service writers. All of them suck except for one. Mark Roach is the only service writer who understands. I asked to get my clutch bled and no one would do it. Then i went to mark and he's the man.

rave: auto x this sunday and I get my car back tomorrow lol
