Dad used to tell me to steer clear of conversations on Politics, Religion and Sex.
Yep - add in a family gathering and a little gin and you've got great entertainment!!

I would 2nd that sentiment Graham. Where I come from especially, religious differences have gotten a lot of people killed over the years.

Hey Wes. Given the learned advice offered up by Counselor Graham, we should probably keep this light! I will say that if any business conducted itself the way Congress does, well, it wouldn't be in business for long. And no president, from either party, can fix that.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming......

I'm happy to report that the push-button start on my Fiesta works as well as a key would in my hands. After letting it sit for 2.5 weeks while away on a family emergency, and being subjected to a myriad of temperatures and precipitation (from snow to rain to snow, temps from -40F up to +35F), it flooded when I attempted to start it.
The car cranked itself for ~10 seconds before stopping. I then pressed the accelerator pedal to the floor to clear the flood, pressed the start button again, and it coughed and choked like it would with a key. It finally caught about half a crank before the car stopped trying for the second time. I then pressed the button a third time, and success!
I guess all those fluctuations, combined with it being about -35F when I tried to start it (after a few hours of engine block and oil pan heating), was too much for the young child.

Michael graduates from Temple University this Friday; I am so proud of him and what he has accomplished so far. I'll be up in Philadelphia freezing my butt off, but inside, I'll be glowing!

#16933 of 17133 What to see between DC and Boston
Jan 31, 2013 (7:45 am)
Need vacation tips. My bro is coming up this summer and we'll drive from DC to Boston, but we've done all the cliche stuff (NYC) many times. We have a bunch of pre-teens, most 10 to 15 years old.
I'm thinking Philly, Boston, Cape Cod. Any other suggestions along the way or near those places?
It would be a driving trip, so not too much farther than Boston.
What say ye? Any must sees?

My Boston ideas:
Fenway Park tour
Minuteman National Park
Salem Witch tour
Provincetown - it's "alternative"
Check out the Red Jacket resort on the Cape - it's family oriented.
Newport Mansion tour
