Out of the Blue

My Sirius radio is on the fritz lately: Sometimes it works fine for lengthy stretches, but at other times, like today, it will repeatedly cut out with an "check Sirius tuner" message that indicates this is not an antenna issue. Switching my receiver off and on again sometimes fixes it, but today is one of those days it doesn't want to stay on for more than 10 seconds at a stretch. The thing is, I only have it to listen to Howard Stern, and with it sounding ever more likely that he's not going to be there after about a month from now, it's not worth getting another radio, as if I wanted to listen to over-compressed music I could just stream it over the internet.

1,5, and 9.

When I am in an area that I am not famaliar with, I don't drink their water. I have had the luxury of having great water in the burbs (well) and now Minneapolis water is rated pretty well and tastes good - so oh well.

The oil change thing - My veh just went off of warranty, so I will be tripiling my milegae to 9k miles between changes. I was buying oil changes in "buy 3 and get 2 free" so I didn't mind anyway.

Howard Stern - meh. Never was interested in shock jock stuff. He found a way to make lots of money, and I think that is great for him. But between him and the O/A show - just never appealed to me. We have some pretty good radio here in MPLS. Other than that - the best investments I ever made (was XM BEFORE the merger - then canclled when they got rid of Fungus 53) was a cd deck in my vehicles that also has USB port on the front. I use thumb drives with MP3s.
