All projects have been on hold for the last 2 to 3 weeks since the old Taurus bit the dust. I finally lost the transmission on the way to work and had smoke pouring out and with 236,000+ on the oddometer there's no way she's getting fixed.
The rest of the time has been spent finding a new car and going through that nightmare. New or Used was the question and I finally ended up with a 2006 Hyundai Elantra for the value and a killer warranty. I like it more everytime I drive it.
Now that that's settled I plan to get on with things as posted before.
