    Good luck with the car! I hope it can be a reasonable fix or you can find a reasonable replacement without breaking the bank.

    I always wonder about stuff like that (radiator needing replacing every 2 years). I know for my mom's car, it's just the model that has muffler issues. The muffler has been replaced on it a few times. The road salt around here just destroys them and for some reason, it's worth than a lot of other cars. Granted, the car is now 14 years old (VW Jetta). I've seen many other cars of the same era and model with the same muffler problem. Hers finally crapped out with engine issues that aren't worth fixing and my parents bought a new car (second ever from a dealership). I'm excited for them

    We hit the breaking point with both our vehicles ~5 years ago, ran 'em till they just weren't the ongoing repairs. Neither of us are really "into" cars, don't care about the bells and whistles, so we got a couple of Hyundais that were only a little more expensive than some used cars we were looking at. Vehicles are just not a big deal beyond moving us and our stuff, and we don't drive as much as most folks. (Combined mileage for both, a 2007 and a 2008, ~55,000.)

    I don't freak over sushi. Love sashimi, but figure if I'm gonna splurge, a little white rice is nice. Love the specialty rolls, but some of my absolute faves are a la carte: uni (sea urchin... has to be good quality, but worth it!), ikura (salmon roe, kickass Primal!), and sava (Spanish mackerel, very sweet). Also, hotategai (scallop) is worth trying. Went to Portland, ME and ate at a place on the waterfront (J's Oyster Bar) that had raw scallops: this is OMG territory, big and luscious and sweet as summer corn. One appetizer to look for is hamachi kama. That's grilled yellowtail, from the "collar" area, and it's the fattiest, most delectable thing imaginable. When I do takeout and get the hamachi, you can bet the dog and cat are giving me the laser stare-down. You can always substitute kama for a roll.

    Damn, now I want sea urchin. Bring me sea urchin! Bring it now! And kama!

    If you lived near me Paula, I would have Clint look at the van for you. He would probably cut you a deal on labor.

    Oooouuugh- uni. That is the one kind of sashimi that I do NOT care for. More for Finnegan's Wake!

    I like the rice and my japanese place goes light on it. Total carb intake was 40g yesterday.
    I love the avocado boat...Half an avocado filled with tuna an a bed of japanese veg.

    Car only made it halfway to the shop had to be towed. My husband brought me to work and then stayed with the car until it was towed. My poor husband is going to work today on only a few hours of sleep. Our little guy crawled in with us last night so poor sleep was a given.

    I keep getting told that, but I'm scared to try it. I love seafood, but am just not a fan of Japanese food. I do like Japanese steakhouses however(I don't think that's really close to authentic but hell).

    Formal Observation day today. Think of me between 12:30 and 1:30. The new observation system is so convoluted that it is difficult for the observer to gather all of the evidence needed. If I am not deemed an "Effective" or "Highly Effective" teacher after 20 years, then I don't know what to say.

    I will get my car back this afternoon. Apparently it was a heat sensor part that needed to be replaced, not the whole radiator.

    Can't wait to get home today and take a nap.

    Yay for car repairs that DON'T cost as much as you fear. I'll be thinking of you, Pebbles, though I'm sure you'll be fine. You got this.
