thanks mr n where ya been ?yeah keep it clean all yr,,i had some bad ,,very bad headlight clouding ,,made headlights at night very dimmed,so after trying on own to clean them,hooked up with one of the vendors at the dealer i work at and he used solution and resealed them to factory look Shocked.. Smiley,,,looks like i had old lights replaced with new ones,,now at night road is bright again Cheesy...its a great ride,,,its been repained on one side bad accident i had plowed into by lady both doors and side airbags ,airbag in door,scared the crap out of me,,my daughter was 11 months at the time behind me,,she shook it off after few minutes no hospital,,,

This must have been crazy scary for you and your baby daughter. Glad all the damage was to the machine and not to you and your daughter. Air bags and small children are not a good combination.

My few accidents have all been fender benders, thank goodness. All the damage to my vehicle is from age and the road. Someday, I will have all the little paint nicks repaired. My most major accident was when I busted out the back window recently while taking my defunct lawnmower into the shop and it crashed through the back window. Cost me $100 co-pay for my comprehensive deductible.

Cold EEZE is a fake! My cold has already moved down to my chest and I am into the full-on bronchitis. Looks like I will be going to the doctor for a prescription antibiotics. I have had bronchial pneumonia so many times I've lost count. This started in infancy and has haunted me all my life. Tonight, I self medicated with scotch. While it has numbed the cough reflex, it has not killed the virus. Not to be morbid, but I have a strong feeling this is what I will eventually die from....bot not this time.

What is most inconvenient is that I have probably the busiest week of the year coming up next week. I am signed up to attend a three day conference at the end of the week. My hotel room is paid for and I have almost everything I need to do ready to go. Unless a miracle happens and I am suddenly over this shit by Wednesday, I will cancel my room and not attend the conference. Never-the-less, I have some commitments I must get done regardless of whether I grace them with my presence or not.

HOT,HOT,HOT IN JERSEY,,,

Of course I left Jersey during a heat wave to vacation in South Carolina. It's warm here but no 90 degrees like Jersey. Damn I live by the beach too in Jersey. Anyway, enjoying my time here. Worked legs in the condo gym. Limited equipment.

Smith machine  squats 3 x 10
dumbbell lunges 3 x 8
Tried their machine leg press it had the strangest strength curve. Got easier as you pushed out. It should have been the other way around. Only did one set.
leg extensions 3 x12
standing leg curl 3 x10
single leg calf raise 3 x 10 (injured calf. These were tough)
seated calf 3 x 15

Michelin Primacy MXV4 is what I put on my car the last time it needed tires. The car handles much better and these tires really quieted the road noise as compared to what I had before. The salesman at Les Schawb talked me into buying Toyo premium high performance tires several years back. They were noisy, they only lasted about 2 years and my car would drift like it was out of alignment if you took your hands off the wheel. With the Michelin tires I could go for miles with out steering on a straight road. I think Mercedes come factory equipped with Michelin Primacy tires.

I am very fond of the Volvo C30.

I picked out the color, metallic white, interior black on black leather with and automatic transmission. I am too lazy to shift.

The car might be a bit small, but that is exactly what I like about it. There is still plenty of room in the back for the pups and my wife's rollalator.

Trust me to pick a car that isn't in production any longer. I got to thinking that if the back seats didn't fold flat there probably isn't enough room for all the stuff I haul around in my wagon anyway.

My cold is raging on. No workout today. -Slept until noon.

I took my wife to the doctor today because her cold started first and since she has congestive heart failure and a tendency towards pneumonia, her getting a cold is more serious then it is with me. The doctor put her on an antibiotic for a bacterial infection in her lungs.

So far, I am keeping my cold under control. Tonight it is all in my head which for me is a good thing since I also have a tendency for colds to become bronchial pneumonia. As soon as my chest starts becoming congested I will be getting an antibiotic from the doctor too.

Besides the fact that getting a cold sucks and is interfering with my workouts. This week is probably one of the busiest weeks for me of the year. I had to cancel a meeting tonight. Thursday, Friday and Saturday I am expected to be at the annual OSEA conference. If I am not considerably better, I won't be attending for the first time in years.  I guess there is no good time to catch a cold, but this is probably one of the worst times for me.

I did not workout yesterday. It would have been an interesting workout if I had though. I was on one long sneezing attack. Finally, I just took my broken body to bed so I could sleep through this shit. This morning, I felt much better when I first got up and then the sneezing, coughing and runny nose kicked in. Still, I think I am marginally better then yesterday. I briefly imagined I could work legs today and then thought better of it.

Never-the-less, I just called and cancelled my hotel room reservations and sent an email out to my cohorts attending conference that I would not be there this year. Even if I started feeling markedly better tomorrow, I don't wish to make a couple of hundred people sick with my germs.

On the car front. I took my car in for some work yesterday. I thought it might need a new fuel filter as it was running kind of rough. As it turned out, another coil had gone bad and it was misfiring. This happened last year too. It is a fairly expensive fix. I went ahead and had the mechanic replace a third coil and put in new plugs for those coils. All three coils are on the backside of the engine which is more labor intensive to get to and thus more costly. So now if anymore coils go bad, they should be the old ones in the front. The car is not due for a tune up for another 40,000 miles.

Yeah, guess I won't be bragging about how I never get sick for awhile now. This is the first cold I've had since I retired in 2009. I just wish I would get a cold like other people do and without the threat of bronchial pneumonia. I did feel better today, however I will probably "lay low" until this thing is gone.

Unfortunately my wife isn't doing as well as me. She has a doctor's appointment again on Friday when they will check her oxygen saturation levels and her heart again. She slept most of the day today.
