    haven't seen Car_man in a dog's age. I'm on the wrong boards....

    Car_man is a HUGE asset on the leasing boards. He provides all the current money factors/residuals/incentives to help you calculate your own lease. His info in my last two leases was dead on and helped me to confirm the dealer wasn't marking up the MF, etc.

    not to belittle the service he provides, but I notice the response time has slowed WAAAAYYY down.

    This is getting way out of hand -- what's with all the courtesy and compliments? While Ask Sir Fezo was funny as heck, there were times when we had a few rounds of perhaps not too complimentary exchanges. ASF was not for the meek or feint of heart, there were some great characters on-board where shyness was not often found among the inhabitants. Guess I've been gone a while since the ASF daze. BTW, that was not a malipropism.

    Did we even have a host? I don't recall having one...

    Feels like a virtual high school reunion in here. Better run out and rent myself a cooler car. The minivan isn't going to cut it with this crowd.

    This topic does a good job of policing itself; in the old days certain members would zero in on the jerks and attempt to get them to implode. It was fun...

    Yes, "certain members" had a talent of zeroing in on the jerks and goading them into saying things that led them down the old "Banishment Trail".

    Once in awhile we would get lucky enough to see the troublemaker's final obsenity filled post before it got taken down.

    Yeah, that WAS fun! ;)

    Oh, Car_man is in leasing. No wonder I don't see him. The Sir does not do leases....

    Oh, some of the parting messages were wonderful. I'll not name names but I do know that some of those banished folks have returned under secret identities and are just fine these days. Must have been the kryptonite....

    Craig....I want to say it was '94-'95....maybe even '97 (got my first home internet connection, albeit dial-up in '94) that I stumbled in here. Aside from the hosts (which have been here for a good long while), I remember seeing your posts. You (I don't agree with you all the time, nor you with me) and fezo have been as helpful as any in these boards over the years.

    Made some new friends in here, too. Sometimes I bow out for awhile, I always come back to find genuine and helpful posts.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,762
    Oh, I think you and I usually agree with each other. It would be pretty boring if we ALWAYS agreed on everything!
  • jg88jg88 Posts: 59
    One of the 1st questions I asked to Sir Fezo was why wheels appear to be going in reverse in movies, especially wagon wheels. That one lasted for about 5 pages of nonsense and fun. Since no one ever properly explained the reason, I still wonder.

    Didn't have Wikipedia back in the day?

    You can see it in real life too (strobe effect).

    Hey! Sir Fezo was the original Wikipedia! Once in a while we even got a correct answer. We tried not to but sometimes it was unavoidable.
  • fezofezo Posts: 9,364
    BTW, Your Sir is reporting from home from today (last night actually) until Sunday. He'll likely go check out where he previously allegedly worked before he landed in his current situation.

    Just missed the girls' softball game last night by minutes. Darn that Obama!
  • jg88jg88 Posts: 59
    Excellent response, perhaps the idea for wikipedia came from ASF -- if anyone can prove otherwise they are welcome to respond. Mainly the point on ASF was to discuss the question more than find the answer.
  • jg88jg88 Posts: 59
    In W. LA. along Interstate 10 is a billboard advertising Fezzo's restaurant. Is this teh incorrect spelling? (Teh is Fezo-ese for the.)

    More fun than watching TV, that's for sure.

    Of course!

    Craig...we did agree most of the time.

    Always enjoyed fezo's answers, be they correct, or not (glad you're making it home, buddy...even for a little bit).

    Here's to more "fezo" as well as not only reminiscing, but also looking ahead for more......

    Fezo, anything planned?
    We are staying home and I'll grill some steaks and fish.
    Not into going to a restaurant.
    I'm asking for a Worx GT. I'll just use it as an edger.
    I enjoy going to NASCAR races when I can and related to that is reading articles related to to it.
    Ten or more years ago, I started following weekly reports by Matt McGlaughlin.
    He posts this story just before every Father's Day and it has never gotten old for me.

    It will be a laid back and not too late Father's Day. They let me go home for the long weekend but back to NYC Sunday evening. Less than a month and they let me stay.

    Can't go out to eat for a while. Restricted diet.

    Gee, this is fun.....
  • explorerx4explorerx4 Central CTPosts: 9,797
    Get ready for the parade when you get back. ;)

    You betcha!

    I'm not much for Father's Day; as a friend of mine puts it, it's just the same as Mother's Day- except you get a tie or a shirt.
    Whoopie...

    Today we present Sir Fezo's driver's ed in three minutes. Many here can ignore the speed part of the advice. Grandpa's advice.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,762
    It'll be a good Father's Day for me! Going to "Fenders on Front Street" which is a yearly event in our town. They close down the main street and it'll be packed with a hundred or more old cars. Going with my son and 2 year old grandson.

    Then, probably fire up the bar-b-que.

    Another car show tonight. What a great town to live in!
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,762
    My parents had a car like that one! A 1951 Buick Roadmaster. Dark green with a white top. What a car that was!

    That song reminded me of a story.

    There was a five year old girl whose grandfather would pick her up every Saturday morning and take her for a ride in the country in his car.

    One Saturday, he couldn't come so her grandmother picked her up instead and took her for her weekly ride.

    When they returned, her mother asked if she had enjoyed the ride.

    Having only been on this site since about 2007, I don't have the old memories you guys have; but I'm still known to fix things well.

    I am a cancer survivor (Melanoma in 1990) and have been through stuff I would not want anyone to go through. In 1995, I found out about an electrical instrument which kills viruses and bacteria by using precisely tuned radio frequencies. I didn't know anything about it; but it came with an unconditional money back guarantee; and I was up against the wall at that time; so I bought it. I soon found that it is more effective than I would ever have imagined.

    I've now been using this device for 17 years, and I would always hope to have it with me when needed. It is gentle and free of side effects, and can be used in the privacy of home, where it can enhance the results of conventional therapies.

    As might be expected; there are conflicting opinions about this. I tend to place more trust in my own experience than in claims and opinions I hear.

    Anyway, there is a book by Barry Lymes, called :"The Cancer Cure That Worked." which describes the history of this device: http://www.amazon.com/The-Cancer-Cure-That-Worked/dp/0919951309?tag=duckduckgo-l- m-20

    There are many such devices being sold. The best one I would want for myself is: http://gb4000.org/gb4000_products.html There is also a less expensive device that looks potentially good; though I have not personally used one: http://www.rifedigital.com/

    I hope you have a great weekend! Joel
