    Steering out and I’m stumped

    Have you noticed that they don't build vehicles like they used to.

Anyway this van has something like 9,500 miles on it. The service manager listened to the noise and advised us not to drive...

    I grew up in the HVAC industry and years ago my dad had one of his heating companies located in Toledo, Ohio.

    Got a new guard dog

    I got a new dog to guard our house. It was a little more than I thought I should pay but I think when word gets out we'll be a relatively crime free neighborhood.
