I'm still alive

Hello All,
Life has been busy and I have barely been on the computer (aside from work). 

We've had an ongoing car saga....no alternator, ordering alternator, driving by charging batteries at night and driving with no wipers or AC, new alternator, defective alternator, no car appointments available....basically my whole July has been borrowing vehicles from family. It seems my car is just as high maintenance as me.  Hopefully by Wednesday all will be well with the world.  Hot tip:  some models of Audi's have very unconventional engines that mean is takes between 3 and 4 hours just to change an alternator - make sure both you and your repair place know this when booking an appointment....otherwise you get phone calls after the car has been dropped off saying that they either don't have the proper equipment needed or don't have time after all, even though you've told them the make and model...

I digress.  Come on Wednesday!

  1. Bloody European cars! I've been down that road, and it's not enjoyable.

    Glad you're back.
