Milk Shakes

I love a good milk shake and have found a great one at the local Sheetz gas station here in town. They are only $2.29 and they have a good variety of flavors to offer. I usually end up with a plain vanilla one but once in a while I’ll get a strawberry one, but I stay away from the chocolate ones. If I want chocolate I’ll buy a chocolate candy bar to enjoy. Chick Fillet also has good milk shakes but they are a bit more costly, so Sheetz is the place to go for me right now.

Actual Crack in a Boeing 737

This is scary for anyone who travels frequently by plane!!!!

Actual crack in a US Airways Boeing 737 window frame! Fliers beware of the sub standard maintenance on the airplanes that you fly on. This is an actual crack that was found in the window frame on a 737. I’ll definitely think twice before flying USAir.


Dog Tired

The family dog that went on a 2 day adventure and ended up 5 miles away from the house is still tired out, big time. She isn’t eating much, but is drinking a ton of water, so she goes outside to do her business and that is about all she does these past few days. I’m hoping that she is all right and that she will be back to her old self soon.

Vehicle Repair

My sister has the worst luck with vehicles. Being single and living far from home makes the whole situation even worse. She has a nice 2001 Toyota Corolla that has been pretty good to her for the past few years, but know she is starting to find more and more things that are needing attention on the darn thing.

Right now she is dealing with a water pump issue as well as checking into Reverse Osmosis Indianapolis for their dirty water crisis. The need for vehicle repair never happens at a good time, but there are certainly worse times to have to deal with the parting of your hard earned money and being separated from your vehicle during the needed repair time at one of her selected Chicago auto repair shops.

She is a single mom that has 2 kids to shuffle around and of course works two jobs to support them with and needs a good running and reliable car to round all over town in. Toyota’s are good cars, parts are easy to find and are pretty much affordable, as affordable parts go, but it all takes money and time, two things that she doesn’t have a whole lot of to spare these days.
