Lemon Signs

For my job with the Postal Service, I drive a company car. A lot. Up to six hours on an occasional day.

Which means I put a lot of gas into the vehicle. Which means I am acutely aware of gas prices, and their extreme volatility. Consumer Reports wonders if the time is right to bring back the '70s and lower the national speed limit once again to 55 m.p.h. They say it would save about 100 *billion* barrels of oil each year.

What say you?



The "Check Engine" light now says, "Hi. Me Again."

The Auto Dealer sticker on the back has been removed.

You begin to get e-mails from eBay people asking when you'll be selling the parts.

You notice a tow truck parked on the street near your house. As you leave for work in the morning, you see that it silently falls in behind you.

WISDOM for YOUR WEEK: "Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evildoers. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way." (Proverbs 4:14-16)
