Non-election stuff on election day

First, it is finally snowing again in Park City. It's about damn time. They've been having record heat for the past few weeks. Think cold. Think snow. Steve wants to ski!!

Next, you know how the American car companies took such a beating for a decade or two because the foreign cars were built better? Now they hold their own quite nicely in all the quality surveys. One little irony. We have a Ford Explorer with over 100,000 miles on it, some of which have been dragging a boat that was well beyond the towing capacity. What piece on the truck holds up better than any other? The engine? The drive train?

Try the "check engine" light. That little bugger has been on every second the truck is running for the past 3 or 4 years. I keep expecting it to finally die an stop bugging me. And for you naggers, yes, I do check the engine every month or so. It's always there. Nice reminder though.
