"Two Unemployed Democrats" on NPR this morning...
GOPisEvil knows them, I think...

Just caught the end of the story, but they made the Republican guy look real lame by comparison...Their merchandise sales have increased astronomically, (to $300K?), the Republican site's sales are "flat".

HA!

1. Heard that one! Thought it was very funny, and good news
Dude said they brought in $144,000 last year, and so far this year they're about triple that.

WOO HOO!

2. I believe this is their site:
http://www.seeyageorge.com /

And I've gotten some nice stuff from them.

3. I've never met them actually!
:D

But they are here in town. If my car hadn't been giving me trouble, I was going to check out their retail store this weekend.

4. I hesitate to ask, since I've had Infiniti probs as well, but...
...what's happening with the G20? Inquiring minds, etc.

I had to go in for a clutch in May and an A/C compressor this month, so I'm "Infiniti poor" :(

Still think you can hang with us next week while we're around?

Enquiring minds want to know!

19. Hey did you ever get a copy of "Vast Conspiracy?" It's now 75% off
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 11:07 AM by Richardo
the $4.98 sale price,or...(let me see - carry the 1...) $1.25. :wow:

I'd be happy to pick one up for you guys if you want, and we'll figure out how to get it to you...(could you come by NW Houston or will you be spending all your time in Galveston?)

20. Oooohhhh...there's an idea.
When we leave on Thursday, we're not going back to Dallas, we're heading to Austin for the evening to spend some margarita/dinner time with GOPisEvil, sonia, Velma, and whoever else wants to show up. And go see Kerry get the nom.

So how close is Cypress to 290? We could make a detour to grab some late breakfast or early lunch with you--

Could that work? I mentioned the book to Al the other day when you told everyone about the deal and he got that rabid, overly enthusiastic bibliophile look in his eye, so I think he's into it!

Let me know....
Laini =)

21. i'll PM you - that could work...
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 11:48 AM by Richardo
Cypress is right off 290, but during the day I'm at the Galleria at West Loop 610 and Westheimer. I could easily slip out for a 'breakfast meeting' (wink wink).

Yay! ;)

22. Indeed. Yay!
Let me know if you know any good "breakfast meeting" spots that would be relatively easy to get to from 290.

6. Auto. trans leaking fluid all over the place.
:-(

I took it in for an oil change and was told that the transmission was a quart low. I thought that sounded odd, so I asked if there was a leak, since I had not seen evidence of one. I was told there was no leak. Cut to two days later and the giant red puddle on my driveway. I take it back to the oil change place, and NOW there's a leak.

I suspect they overfilled my transmission and blew a gasket (literally). I'll find out when the nice people at the transmission shop call.

8. Yeah; I'm not a happy camper.
I liked that lube place too. How can you dislike a place called "Groovy Lube"? They use a peace sign as their logo! But, they might have lost me. If the transmission place tells me the seal just wore out, that's one thing. But if it was damaged in some way...

9. Ah, one of the benefits of home ownership...
Knowing for sure that the puddle in the driveway is from your vehicle and not some other shmoe's.

10. Very true.
I might have never noticed if I was still at the apartment complex.

Of course...NOW I have to clean my driveway. :mad:

16. So: caused by overfill? Or worn out?
