  3. Countdown to Turkey Day

    Miscellaneous Hoo-Ha
    We are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time in about 15 years. New house and hopefully, new tradition, as my mother-in-law, who really enjoyed hosting the family Thanksgiving, is really starting to slow down. We will have about 20 people and have the usual faire....turkey, cranberry sauce...

  6. As Toyota sputters, Volkswagen steers for top

    Miscellaneous Hoo-Ha
    I am very much in agreement about the "fun factor" and other aspects that makes driving a VW a different experience than owning any models from the "cookie cutter" manufacturers. Jeep CJ owners are about the only other group I can think of with similar bonds with the ownership experience. In my...

    Miscellaneous Hoo-Ha
    I never figured I'd be asking for recommendations on an Mac Book since I'm a PC guy, but here goes :D My daughter's Dell notebook finally bit the dust and is in need of replacement. Since she is a graphic design major in school, a Mac Book is better suited for tat kind of work and I'm all...

    Miscellaneous Hoo-Ha
    As a parent of a daughter a little older than yourself, you will score lots of points my addressing the parents as Mr and Mrs. My daughter has been in a serious relationship with a great guy for the past 2 years and though we have repeatedly told him to now call us by our first names, he still...

    In Calif, you can't have any friends in the car for the first 12 months and you need a mommy's note if a new driver is transporting siblings. A curfew exists for late night driving as well.
  15. Going to open Yogurt Shop, any advices?

    Miscellaneous Hoo-Ha
    I write the insurance coverage on a dozen or so Baskin Robbins stores in my area. The purchase of frozen yogurt products is much the same as ice cream.....it is dicretionary income spent and there isn't much of that around. One of the stores I insure is one of the highest volume stores in the...
