Some folks follow the Manufacturers recommendations to the letter. Others perceive this as overkill.
Currently, I'm doing oil change every 5,000 miles, rotate tires every 10,000.
What about coolant?
water pump, assorted belts

The audience is a group of existing and emerging leaders (adults from private sector, public sector, non-profs and elected officials) in St. Tamman...

Sonos goes through the Wi-Fi, but jeesh, the primary unit is $350, + $200 to $300 per speaker.
Anyone have suggestions or experience with wireless...
