I had a similar dilemma a couple of months ago. My tranny went out on my 01 dodge 4 wheel drive. The truck is sort of a beater, but mechanically, it was sound, short of the tranny. The truck isn't worth much, but if rebuilding the tranny could just save me from having to make new truck payments for ...

Zooropa and Pop were kinda disappointing to me at the time, but I've completely changed my opinion of them over time. A lot of people have learned to appreciate them more and the albums have aged well. IMO...

It doesn't get any sadder than George Jones 'He stopped loving her today.'
One Tree Hill by U2 is a tear jerker for me.
Bono's assistant was running an errand for him when he was killed while riding Bono's motorcycle.

It's always just about him. He has to put himself squarely in the center of everything. Even when calling attention to his relationship with the Democratic congress will be their demise.
They are trying to save their political lives, but he ...

Some great diving in the Cayman's. I'd look at getting certified locally between now and Feb. Getting certified locally would give you a chance to see if you like it or not, before your trip. But, if you don't want to spend the time and money to get certified, they've got some beginner scuba dives y...

The main dining room is legit, but it's not as good as it once was. They are trying to push more to upgrade to the specialty restaurants. Cagney's has an excellent filet.
