    Let's talk Beer

    One of the best beers I ever had was Hansa Pilsner. It is brewed in Bergen Norway. It is brewed under German Purity Laws and is nice smooth and refreshing. It is not heavy like most American beer. Every time I go to Norway I always pick up a six pack and bring it home. When a friend of...

    So how can I get rid of the leather smell in my new car?

    I was also going to say that many new Japanese cars are shipped with a special coating on the bottom and on the engines. This helps prevent corrosion when they are transported on the ships. When brand new this stuff will burn off and it is very smelly and nauseating. It kind of smells like...

    So how can I get rid of the leather smell in my new car?

    I am not sure of a way to get rid of the leather smell. Leather usually does not smell that bad. It might be something else in the car that is making you nauseated. New cars are assembled with all sorts of nasty glue and many interior parts are lubed with grease. When brand new these things...

    drunk co-worker

    thanks for the replies. We had breakfast yesterday and he opoligized to me about his call on Monday. He said he had a really bad day at home and was hacked off. A decision the owner and I had made that he did not agree with it. He was also upset that he was not there when this decision was...

    drunk co-worker

    Yeah, I was kind of looking for some human resource experts here. Our owner is a passive person. I am not sure if he would really be of much help in this situation. Even though he says his door is open and we can talk about whatever we want. In reality this is not always the case. I...

    drunk co-worker

    I have a little work related issue that lately has been really bothering me. My managing partner keeps on calling me at home when he is totally drunk and gets all philosophical on me. He also criticizes my work. He even criticizes me personally for decisions that were made above my head...

    wierd internet problem

    I think I got mine last week when I was searching for old files for Microsoft Flight Simulator. I went to this one web site that had loads of pop up adds. One of them could have been the affected pop up. Mine is secure for now. That is until the people make these get more creative.

    wierd internet problem

    Hi Ted, I tried the fix at tweakxp without success. First I deleted the host file and then I ran the Spybot program. They say that I should check the box "lock hosts file read-only as protection against hijackers". I don't seem to have this option when I select immunize on the right hand...

    wierd internet problem

    I tried the fix from Symantic and after a long while of searching it finely said I did not have the Ghost virus on my computer. I have not tried any other fixes yet. I can access the front page of Yahoo and Google but I can't search for anything without an error 404. As an example if I type...

    wierd internet problem

    Wierd... I have Norton antivirus and it comes up clean. I just updated it a few days ago. Could this be a worm not detectable by antivirus software? If so I might have to pick it out by hand.

    wierd internet problem

    I have a strange internet problem and hope someone can help me out. For some reason when I try to use Yahoo or Google search I always get a "The page can't be found" error 404 message. Last week I was getting this message on every web page I tried. So I called Comcast tech support and we...

    Anyone know anything about the 2003 Ford ZX2?

    I recommend that you take the time and look at the Hyundai Elantra GT. It comes in hatch form or sedan body styles. It is cheaper, larger and has more features then the Ford ZX2. Plus you get a 10 year 100,000 mile powertrain and 5 year 50,000 mile bumper to bumper warrantee. I am even willing...

    issues with work

    Thanks for the advice. I am pretty sure they are trying to keep me from being distracted. I am pretty busy as it is and dealing with the media would probably be a bit much. Also if one thing I am not good at is being a PR person. I am really weak in this regard. I never told this to my...

    issues with work

    Lately some things at work have been really bothering me. I am not sure if its just me or if it really is an issue. I am currently the highest paid person. I do most of the work and initiate the ideas. I am pretty much the brains of the operation. Problem is some of the ideas I have...

    2 years ago, Thursday.

    This was a rather emotional day for me. Not only did 9/11 happen but the day before I got laid off from my job. A job I really loved and enjoyed. I was already very depressed from the job loss and then 9/11 happened throwing me into some major emotional stress. It was pretty serious and I...

    Cancelling extended car warrantee?

    Yeah, The warranty was wrapped in the car loan. So I can see why they might want verification. Never had to do it in the past even when financed though. First the odometer statement list the buying dealer. In order for the dealer to get the title the loan would have to be paid off. So the...

    How late is too late to answer a knock at the front door?

    I actually had a knock on my door at 2:00am and it was the police. They kept on knocking and saying they were the police. They had the flashlights out and they had the red and blue lights from the cop car on. Plus the swivel light was lighting up pretty much my whole yard. I was about 100% sure...

    Cancelling extended car warrantee?

    Last week I traded in my 02 Mustang LX for a 2004 Hyundai Sonata. I don't regret it one little bit. The Sonata is more comfortable and is faster and might just even handle better then my Mustang. It is also the first car I have ever owned that has zero defects out of the factory. I usually...

    The new 2004 Hyundai Tiburon Hardtop *CONVERTIBLE*!!!

    Wow that is a sharp car.... Hyundai is really coming around. I just purchased a 2004 Hyundai Sonata LX V6. The car is really quiet inside without a single rattle. It rides great and handling is not bad. It also has a level of isolation only found in a Lexus. When I was waiting for my car...

    Hyundai Sonata

    Shane, Sorry I live in Seattle Washington. A little far from Arkansas. Anyways I made a deal and I am now an owner of a 2004 Sonata LX V6. I got what can be be called a really good deal because the dealer made an error. The original price quote was with the $1,000 rebate offered on the...

    Hyundai Sonata

    This is getting tempting. They offered me another $1,000 for my trade. They also dropped the extended warrantee by $500. Not sure if I really want the extended warrantee or even really need it. 5/60,000 is pretty good but 10/100,000 miles is even better. This is bumper to bumper warrantee...

    Hyundai Sonata

    Well, It looks like I am going to wait this one out. I tried another Hyundai dealership. This was much better to work with but they had 2 deal breakers. First deal breaker was the fact that they did not have any 2003 LX Sonata's in the state. They have all been sold. They have several...

    Hyundai Sonata

    My first try at a good deal ended in failure. So I will be looking for another dealership tomorrow. They were not willing to work the deal under my terms. All they were interested in is how much I was willing to pay per month. What I wanted to do is negoatiate my trade and then when that...

    Hyundai Sonata

    I agree totally. I have made that mistake in the past. The monthly payment is the least of my concerns. If I get a good deal on trade and a good deal on the new car then I should naturally get a good monthly payment. Dealers like to play with the monthly payment so they can color the deal...

    Hyundai Sonata

    me again.. I went back to the dealer so I can show a friend of mine. He was pleasantly surprised as well. I talked with the sales manager and my salesman briefly. I did my homework before and turned in a written offer. They wanted to talk about it but I told them to call me if they can...
