Sorry for not posting for the past week, but took the family north to visit with my family. First time in eight years that all four of my brothers and I have been together. We were even able to talk politics and not have a fist fight…..I think we have finally grown up a little. Didn’t get to take the Obamalac for a ride, but my little brother has a sweet 1957 Cadillac Eldorado. The toils of being a highly paid computer executive. He bought it sight unseen off of Ebay.

My big 3/4 Ton Chevy Four Door Four Wheel Drive Diesel averaged over 18MPG on the trip, and that is with having the four wheel drive engaged for about 150 miles during a snowstorm in Des Moines Iowa. I was pleased.
On another note, I have lived in Texas almost twice as long as I have in Illinois, and I still can’t think of a reason why anybody would live in a place that considers 40 degrees a warm day in November.
