Re: Your favorite travel restaurants?

I love local places. I'll generally ask people that live in the area and use some of my iphone apps to read reviews. If I wanted Olive Garden or Applebee's, I can have that at home. Here locally? I'd recommend Las Amigas for Mexican in Arlington and Ginza for Asian in Grand Prairie. Babes for down h...

Re: Hookah/Shisha (Tobaco water pipe) smoking

I love smoking from a Hookah. But no more than I smoke, I can't justify the costs. So for now it's just the occasional cigar after dinner. {Tonight will be one of those cigar nights.} The first time I smoked from a Hookah was in Bahrain during Desert Shield / Storm. Though most refused to believe I ...

Re: Wonder what happened to Angel?

Angel is alive and well. I've become more involved in my community and less involved with online forums. I've found some old friends I served with in the Marine Corps and a couple of long lost cousins on Facebook. I'm doing volunteer work through Help Hospitalized Veterans {an arts and crafts progra...

Re: 2005 Five Hundred trunk not opening right.

Sounds like it needs to be realigned. If I recall correctly there was a TSB on this.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things.

One of my favorite things about Dixee was the dashboard storage compartment. If I were going to take anything out of the Five Hundred and put it in the smart it would have been that. It's been a while since we talked about favorite features so I thought I'd bring it up. What is the one or two most f...

Re: I hit a personal MPG record

JJ, I'm with you. 28 was my all time high with Dixee. {TX to CA and back.} That was driving conservatively and drafting trucks when I could. I had a C.B. in her so I'd ask. And I'd never draft one running retreads. Realistically when she was running in top shape my average was closer to 24 or 24. To...

I don't like to change oil. But I know how. And I'd do it myself before going to Jiffy Lube.

Re: Lowest Gas Prices? $1.85

Well, I didn't need gas and it was a bit too far from my home. I'm SE of Fort Worth and Lake Worth is NW of Fort Worth. Maybe 40 minutes w/o traffic but just to drive there it's probably closer to an hour then an hour wait? The best price near me realistically is about $2.83 at Costco. Sure was shoc...

Lowest Gas Prices? $1.85

http://www.star-telegram.com/804/story/967276.html LAKE WORTH, TX — Police were called to direct traffic Friday afternoon as word got around that the owners of gas stations in the 6600 block of Azle Avenue were lowering their prices. When the sun set Friday, the price per gallon at both stations wa...

Re: Smile factor:What car gets you the most social interaction?

You know, I find it weird that having by far the most problems with my car (more than Dixee did) I still miss my car, and Angel really doesn't miss hers at all. Strange. Reasons why I may not miss Dixee. 1. I was torqued at the restyling and renaming to Taurus. Made no secret of it but did quit har...

Re: Ford Flex

Yes. The Flex and the smart fortwo would serve 2 different purposes. Most of my driving is me, myself and me. So the smart serves several purposes. It's my gas savings vehicle. It's my fun vehicle. And sometimes it's our long trip vehicle if we don't need to take a lot & it's just the two of us. Th...

Re: Ford Flex

Great review there Lyn A. Since I didn't actually drive it yet ... figured I'd just keep it short and sweet. I'm definitely going to test drive it as soon as I can make the time. I'm still in love with my lil Belle. But at some point the Flex could be a replacement for the H3 ... maybe. Like you, IF...
