Well now . Its been quite awhile . Much has changed as well as more may still . But ... its good to be back ( I hope )
First off let me express my apologies to any and all who's toes I may of stepped on , insulted , falsely accused etc . Not to make excuses ... but the previosu three years were an abject Hell . My wife and I fighting tooth and nail to maitain the quality and level of care her ill mom needed and wanted because other members of her family wanted the money . To say the least it was a WAR . And again ... not to make excuses but when I'm that deep into conflict i have the unfortunate habit of letting it leak out into my day to day life . So again . I hope y'all will accept my apologies and carry on ( PS; the wife's mom passed March of last year : Trust is settled : Legalities done with . War is over )
Second - Whats new ? A new car in the garage for starters . I traded the MINI for a brandy spankin new 2011 Mercedes Benz GLK350 4Matic . White w/AMG package . Why ? The 56 year old back to put it in a nut shell . We love the car . Named it " Franz " ( after F Klammer the skier ) We call it our Goldilocks car . Cause its just right in every respect
Also , on my current opnions about the US Automotive Industry . Suffice it to say after all the money we Tax Payers have sunk into them and how little ( nothing actually ) we've gotten in return , my opinion is in the Toilet about them all . You won't be seeing/reading any defence of the ( not so ) Big Three coming out of me anytime soon
As to the politics here ? My opinion is even lower on that subject . I've not registered to Vote .... can't wait for the elections to be done with and would Appreciate everyone leaving that subject off the table if you would .
Last . Some new things may be in the works , music wise and we may be moving back to glorious Colorado . We've had enough of South of the Mason Dixon Line , so our fingers are crossed
Anyway thats enough for now . To those who can forgive . Thank you . To those who cannot . I understand and hope you will down the road .
Cheers / Ciao and Rock On
