Traffic, went and filled the 200 today and ended going during evening rush since it was the first chance I had today......... between traffic and weather it took forever. Really wish somebody would put an E85 pump closer to here........

Does your 200 need E85? Can't you use regular old gas?

Primer and paint in one ? Interior latex paint that "guarantees" it covers in one coat, but doesn't come close. With today's technological advances they can't make a paint that covers in one coat ? Really ?

No sh''''''''' uh, stuff.

Being all excited about being able to fill my Jeep for "only" $3.19/gal last night..........then realizing that when I bought it 10 years ago, I was filling it for well under $2.00/gallon............it could be worse though, it could be the $4.45/gal I paid at the height of the '08 gouging....er...summer driving season............

Yeah, and you can't selectively block ebay's general BS promotions from your e-mail and keep on getting the actually-relevant-to-what-you-want messages that unsold items have been relisted, etc. It seems to be all or nothing...at least that's what a 30-second investigation looked like.

hahahahahahaha, I remember when traveling used to be fun.. now it's a real PITA

Yes, but who we REALLY have to thank are the mis-guided SOBs who decided to try to use public air transportation as a weapon against the freedom-loving West, and those in the West who would apparently happily trade freedom and convenience for the perception of "security".

Sorry if this strays too close to politics. :angry:

Yeah, I hate flying at holidays and try to avoid it, but with family in AZ and Ohio I often can't avoid it.. :(

I understand there is a "need" for heightened security and such. Unfortunately it's the world we live in. But when they make my 9 year old daughter cry and think she did something bad because she has a portable DVD player in her backpack.. that's a little over the line .

Yes... the TSA guys seem to be generally tactless and clueless...

Logan airport in Boston is pretty good, you don't mess with them, they don't mess with you. Hartsfield Jackson in ATL is a totally different story ..

Haven't been through either of those in a while, but I remember Logan being pretty good. These days, I'm going out of Phoenix Sky Harbor to Columbus (Ohio), Pittsburgh, Denver or a bunch of California airports (love the ease of using the small ones like Long Beach).

Flown several times out of KPIT in the past few years, also made return flights out of San Antonio to KPIT and I can't say I've ever had a lick of problems with the TSA in Pittsburgh, and the one time in San Antonio wasn't a problem either. One of the group of guys I was flying to Texas with tried to bring a full can of shaving cream onto the plane in Pittsburgh and got his hind-end handed to him for that, but that wasn't MY problem...moron.

Been through BWI, Albany, DFW & Shreveport as well, but I was just changing flights, and you don't have to deal with the TSA in those cases.
