Marooned

I almost made it home. However my car did not make the trip. I did make it within 20 miles when the alternator gave out. 107,000 miles on the altenator is peachy and I have no complaints. It broke down 50 feet from a mechanic shop and in a safe area.

Many locals offered to drive me home including the local police.

I have to talk with the locals in NYC about a transfer. Is my exodus over?

The beloved Rav Roov is fine and I will try to do an interview on my next visit.

Alternator trouble? Coinkidinky! The nearly new alternator on our Mustang fritzed out a few days ago. There were just a few thousand miles on our alternator. Ugh!

I hate alternator trouble. There's never any warning of impending doom!

Are you back in Vermont now or in NYC?

I am in NJ waiting for my car. My luck is strange the NYC office called for an interview.

I have many alternator problems. I once went through 3 alternators in 3 months, until my idiot self realize it just might be a electrical problem!

Now in my defence I was only 16 at the time.

Rob-But, but, but...you're a guy! Guys are supposed to "know" these things, instinctually! Gee whiz, I'm disillusioned...
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

TMW,
Not all guys know about cars.

My neighbor wouldn't know what one was until one fritzed out on him. He even has trouble finding the dip stick. Sheesh!

I wish we really did know all these things, tmw... but we usually have to learn the same way everybody else does... bitter experience.

At least alternators are relatively easy to change out by yourself, so you can save the $300 you're paying the mechanic and instead spend it on lottery tickets and beer, and shampoo for the kids if'n there's any money left over after that.

Today's factoid:

From just where did the doctrine of biblical inerrancy come?



Why from Jean Calvin -- the name is French -- who took it from Islam and their attitude to the Qu'ran.
Need I say more?

Gee, I missed you at the Code Pinko Parade yesterday, Beak. You didn't miss much, it was very sedate. Took some fairly decent pics though.
What a crew!

No, don't say anymore. You've revealed your idiocy enough.

The doctrine of biblical inerrancy comes from the Roman Catholic Church, who adopted it for their canon of the New Testament in the 3rd Century AD from traditional Jewish views of the Old Testament.

If you want to talk about Islam's influence on Christianity (as it were), look no further than the definition of the word "ayatollah" in Shia Islam and the origin of "papal infallibility" in 8th Century Europe.

You know, when the RCC decided to disassociate itself from Christian theology and become a syncretic cult.
