    Defibrillators -what's the buzz ?

    Over the past few years, defibrillator's seem popular in non-medical settings. Now a marina/club of which I am a member just purchased one, yet we only have 700 members and no one can recall a heart-related emergency. "Classes" will be offered in their use, but is it wise to allow non-medical...

    Solvent question - what's the difference ?

    Ok...what's the difference between paint thinner, turpentine, mineral spirits, brush cleaner, etc ???? They all seem to smell the same and pretty much do the same thing. What key concept am I missing that make us need all this variety ? Thanks

    Entering a sad phase of life where dad is pretty much incapacitated. In helping my mother organize, a huge box of his slide photos dating back to the late 50s, 60s, etc was discovered with tons o' family history. What is the best quality (and speedy) method to convert these to digital ? I'm...

    Nascar phrase you'd never expect....

    Some punishment dished out in Nascar, but this comment is a riot... Gee... bubble gum ? Diet Coke ? A soccer ball ? What next ? Dodge entering a Town & Country into Nascar ? Will be interesting to see the "Camry" sheetmetal job they do to a race frame.

    Breadmakers !

    Appears these were once the "must have" items in the kitchen, but soon fell out of vogue.... Now my daughter and wife have an interest, so my research has begun. Any feedback on the best Breadmaker models ? Not sure what features are available, just my "price pain point" is 100.00 or less...

    "Holiday" review thread

    Saw Holiday last night with a bunch of my daughter's friends as a birthday party (lucky me !!!) Got there 1 hr early to ensure they could sit together in what I anticipated would be a fully packed 10pm showing. [insert crickets chirping] Very heavy on relationship/dependency drama, which...

    Tires - Highlander versus Camry

    First I want to say "thanks" to Toyota for putting the least possible tires on their new vehicles. Our Sienna got ~30k out of it's factory tires, our Highlander 27k... pretty pitiful. So I go to the Good Year dealer to inquire about tires for the Highlander. He pulls up the usual tires for...

    Toyota Highlander acceleration question

    Not sure how many Highlander owners scan this forum, but thought I'd give it a whirl.... We have a 2004 V6 2WD Highlander. The V6 is quite peppy, but there is a noticeable lag in acceleration at key moments (like merging onto a highway). The delay is almost 1 second.... Almost like the...

    Buffing out key marks/door scuffs

    Got key'd in a big way by a punk stepson of a friend (or at least that's who we are blaming it on...long story) Plus we got a few door scuffs from parking in the airport lots. Color is light brown - what's the best way to minimize the visual nastiness ? Not looking for a perfect job as I was...

    Spanish speech vs Mexican vs Cuban

    As I get older, I've got an urge to learn a second language. Figure that Spanish (and it's variations) will be the most useful. Since we travel to Miami and Texas frequently, I was wondering what the major differences are between Spanish, Mexican and Cuban speech ? Radically different, or...

    How does BMG/YourMusic.Com do it ?

    With most download sites charging .99 per song, BMG/YourMusic at 5.99 flat rate per single CD seems quite the deal. Granted their selection is not top-notch, but at that price, who cares. How do they legally negotiate to sell CD's so far below the prices of the original producers ? Is the CD...

    Car accident - collecting Diminished Value

    My wife was in an accident 2 weeks ago that caused ~5k in front end damage to our 2003 Toyota Sienna (unbelievably she's ok except for some bruising). Since the book value of the van is still pretty high (~15k), how much of a resale hit will we take when it comes time to sell ? Damage...

    Golf club question - used Callaways on Amazon...
