    I'm pretty sure this is why God invented service stations. You don't even need to go to VW dealers. Life's too short anymore to spend it doing things you don't want to, and re-inventing the wheel every time. Let a workin' man earn a living!
    I have no problem getting my hands dirty. I actually enjoy it at times. Plus if it can save my parents $600 I'm all game. It's usually a 3-4 hour job. Except VW uses some not very common tools.  
    Used to be my way, but now I'd just pay for the work FOR my parents. The only thing I service anymore is my motorcycle. Other things I'd rather do with my time now.

    Props to you doing it yourself.  I gave up on doing most of my own vehicle maintenance years ago due to time and getting rid of things like used oil is a hassle in town.  Had the brakes on my wife’s traverse done a few weeks ago, ~$700 for new rotors and pads all around.  I figured it would take me a  day and still have half that in parts and I’m confident in the job from that shop.  Fronts had new pads 60k ago, but this is the first brake real brake job in 170k+ miles.  They did a full service as well in there which is only a small fraction.

    My wife just trades in the cars at maintenance intervals.  I was very glad when most companies switched from 3K oil changes to 10k.

    Trying to figure out this new Iphone my daughter gave me. Been a droid guy forever, but I think I will like it after I find out where everything is. The camera is pretty nice, but I need to watch a few videos on how to use all the options. my icloud is full and I have had it for one day....bummer

    I don't think its possible to figure out everything on an iPhone without a "Missing Manual" (which aren't written for Android phones, surprisingly).  I'm about halfway through the 707 pages of my copy, there's so much hidden away on these things.  Highly Recommended.

    gave a 55 gallon drum of automotive waste oil to a place with a waste oil burner. he ended up giving it to beede waste oil, beede waste oil turned into a state superfund for cleanup. got a bill for something like 20,000.00 dollars from the state. got harassed from the state for years for payment. finally they stopped calling/ sending me things after having a lawyer draft a letter asking for proof of a transaction. thinking a govt worker bee didnt want to do the work to find something that probably never existed =) any ways, i send oil changes out now, still could end up in another superfund lawsuit

    The *real* aficionado doesn’t just stick to their own. 

    I visited a lavender farm in the mediterranean, just as  it was coming into bloom

    we had a tasting of the various workers’... shall we say, ‘crotte de nez’.  

    Best is mid-morning. Air no longer dewy. They begin to firm up, no longer wet, but not too dry as with late afternoon product. 

    The pollen, mixed with the lavender perfume, and free of the grittiness from the late afternoon dust, is most sought after. 

    You actually want the ‘crotte’ from the older field workers. They have more nose hair to gather it from. 

    The neophytes make the mistake of going after that of the younger more attractive field hands. The woman who collect the lavender. 

    But their lesser nose hair means the collecting must take place from further back, in the sinus cavity. Too wet, and often strung out on what is almost a tap root of sorts, going back to their soft palette. 

    An acquired taste, admittedly.

    Regionally available in France, but no longer openly. You need to know someone. 

    Harrod’s imports to the UK, but also not advertised. There is a famous annual catalogue of their fine foods, and there is typically no description. It’s listed as “saffron: crotte de nez”, under the listings for “saffron exotiqué”

    Prices usually prohibit accidental purchase. 


    Not available in the US bc it must be pasteurized.

    So you stick with blowing your enemies.  We would likely have world peace and a cigarette shortage if everyone were like you.
