    FWIW, when my fork bearings need changing, I ask my auto mechanic to do it. Because I'm a loyal customer, he does it free (I supply the bearings).

I wish to find friends here where I live to hang out with and i believe it would be helpful to the moral being. Its hard with health care being to harsh upon us. Just be strong and keep yourself busy. Hey you take care, Sammy..

    Don't let the craziness of the HC Parking thread get you down. We are in there scuffling with each other like it is a giant scrum, and really at the end of the day, we all get to park there, and it is the ABs we should be concerned about. Also, thanks for the supportive comment re gay pride. It's not always easy being open about sexuality. You never know what reception you will receive. Just the other day there was a nasty homophobic post in the Politics Forum. One supportive comment like yours means a lot and paves the way for others to be accepting as well. XX Nikki

I've literally worked my way down I65 continuously moving south lol. Its never been planned, just sort of happened that way due to changing jobs and housing situations.
