Re: Buick Lesabre 2000 (Do I need a tune up?)

From what I remember, the coil packs on 3800's loved to corrode at the post where you're plug wires go. There are 3 coil packs, each run 2 plugs. I can't remember if 3 and 6 share the same coil off the top of my head right now. A bad coil pack might be you're problem, but changing the plugs never h...

Re: 'The four things you need.'

Pretty much sums it up in my opinion.
While everyone is in a bit of a different finacial boat, we all need to make sure we can weather what looks to be a nasty storm.
Get as prepared as you can and try to get as debt free as possible.

Re: Threads on how to save Money on living expenses?

Lots of good advice here. Dont eat out or splurg on anything. Dave Ramsey's baby steps are the same as every other economics advice self help books and seminars. Dont fall into credit card debt and pay your stuff off by doubling up your payments. Live cheap and put money away for later in life

Re: G20 in the UK- Terrorism Worries

You guys stay safe and keep your eyes open. I dont think the protestors are going to care if you work in a bank or just a comercial business. If they see someone in office dress they are liable to come your way. Fromt eh way it sounds anyway. I hope Im wrong

Nice pistol. I read the same stuff about .40 being snappy and all that. I love my .40 S&W. I would be real hard pressed to go to a smaller caliber.

AK pistols are really fun toys, but they are really just that. A toy. Accuarcy is not too good, and as a carry gun they are heavy and bulky. We hear this same shit for every gun post around here.

Re: "Resistance to flu drug widespread in U.S." - Yahoo Story

Nothing to worry, get your flu shot and you will be most likely fine. I never would take Tamiflu as it does have some noteworthy side effects. That's OK so long as the shot has the vaccine for the flu strain that is trying to penetrate your body's defenses. Actually handwashing and good hygiene pro...

Re: Heating a home with renewable energy.

First things first. More than anything you have to ensure outside air is not infiltrating your house. Reinsulate your walls and attic. Then make sure their are no open holes on the outside of the house (for sevice lines, a/c etc) allowing air in. Now, and this is much more involved and only tackled ...
