Lisa PollinoOh no!!!! Everytime I see one of these cars on the road I think of you!
Teresa JenningsWe call them she, they protect us, they give us freedom to go places, they become apart of our family. When I sell my cars, never trade them in, I try to make sure they go to a good home!
Greg McClureOw...now you'll have to listen to those crazy Car Guys on NPR!
Karen DenzIt was sad when we sold our 17 year old Jeep. I loved that car. We just sold it about 3 months ago.
Jack TossmanSunny BEACHES Jona! i got one just like it! how many miles? (dang, yer's is CLEAN!
Ross MehanThis is the toughest call--kinda like shaking the dice--do I risk the investment of a repair that may or may not last or go with the huge expense of a new car that's reliable?
Joseph MckinneyVarian's in emeryville should have a good salvage engine at a reasonable price.
Ralph HastyVolvo's originally weren't meant to be traded....EVER! You bought one and drove it the rest of your life. You buy a new car....any new car....now....and just driving off the lot costs you 3 grand. The outside of your V looks great....if the inside still makes you feel warm and fuzzy, keep it and fix it? But shop around among reputable mechanics. Volvo dealers are notoriously expensive for repairs.
Jona Denz-HamiltonRalph Hasty: I've been driving it since it was 4-years old (NEW in my book!) I wouldn't mind a "new" 2008 in my driveway though!

Thanksgiving has come and gone, and the feast is a memory most of it anyway. One of the best things about big meals is what you can snack on later. You get your taste buds geared up and don't want to stop--our 17-pound turkey, shared by 4 people, only lasted until Saturday morning! The pie was gone in hours!! What Thanksgiving leftovers do you still have?
I'm betting that you've got feasting on your mind--I actually had the delusion that pumpkin pie was waiting for me in the KBAY office microwave. LOL, just my frozen lunch entree! My sons Chris and Jeff are whipping up their family-favorite pumpkin pies to take to Nana's on Thanksgiving. We like to add extra spices and CUT the sugar to HALF than recommended--tastier! What are your specialties?
We never got free Twinkies, but it sure was cool when my dad's company, ITT bought Hostess years ago. Now Hostess is set to sell off its assets due to an unresolved strike. What GOODIE do you need to stick around?
Pat CatanzaroUm, anyone concerned the unions brought Hostess (and the beautiful Twinkie)
down? I looked for Twinkies at the local grocery store tonight. There were none to be found. I can't
imagine life without Twinkies, and I am SO PISSED the unions did 'em in. I wanted just one more, even though it is not "on my diet". Now I shall probably never have one again. I'm bummin' tonight.
Jona Denz-HamiltonKellogg's bought Mother's Cookies about a month or two after they closed down...good bet Twinkies and Ho-Ho's will return soon. Don't go buyin' em for $100 on eBay!!
Pat CatanzaroI hope so! I'm hoping someone will buy that recipe! I saw one online to make at home. I'm not sure it would be the same...... just sayin'
Jeff Wheeler@ Pat: want a Twinky? Just take any generic yellow cake mix. Make it into a 1 inch by 4 inch loaf. Inject with Cool Whip. I dare you to taste the difference. And you aren't seriously blaming the unions, are you? Since when did the unions have the power to say Hostess is not to make anymore Twinkies? I thought that was a decision only management could make.
What is it about today--dreaming about TURKEY and PUMPKIN PIE! It must be those ads for setting your perfect holiday table. Mention stuffing to me, and I may scream : )
Digging into your Thanksgiving dinner might ignite the spirit of the Holidays for you. What really does it for me, is singing along with great Holiday songs! They're almost baaaaaacccckkkk! Enjoy KBAY's annual flip to Christmas music starting on Turkey Day--are you ready?
John Hamilton LohnesMy holiday rules: No Halloween stuff until October 1st. No Thanksgiving stuff until after Halloween. No Christmas stuff until after Thanksgiving. All Christmas stuff down the weekend after New Year. No Valentine's Day stuff ever.
