    I was having problems with my ISP and then old "moderator_dee" kicked me out and i couldn't get back in. It couldn't have been anything I said...i was only there for a couple minutes. Kinda rude!!

    I was looking forward to the chat then completely forgot until about 10:45 pm EST. Argh. I was at last weeks for awhile and it was pretty neat.

    Towards the end someone suggested moving it over to an IRC channel but I don't think it happened.

    I would try to get an explanation on what the issue was? I know we were all having a nice conversation, then you were gone.
    Well, "I'm leaving on a jet airplane" as the song goes and flying to Dallas, Saturday. noon. I'm going to lose 2 hours of my day Saturday, one for daylight savings time and one for changing time zones, pol!!

    I contacted EAA based on the informtion posted here and they said that they only have x-pricing, which is 4% over dealer invoice. I also contacted the dealer and the manager said that there is only x-pricing there. Can this be true or is the dealer pulling my leg? Does EAA give actually give you s-pricing after you sign up?

    Someone may have posted not too long ago announcing the newly-available "Plan" for Canadians. I sort of remember that the X-Plan was the Canadian version.

    Under Ford, it's called X-Plan and Mazda calls it the S-Plan. On a Mazda dealer invoice, it's labeled as the S-plan price.

    Or was that potatoe...where is Dan Quayle when you need him?

    The Canadian version at Mazda is X-plan even though the EAA web site says something different. Mazda Canada calls it X-plan, and they have sent out information to all of the dealers, so they should all know about it.

    NASCAR is so lame and all it seams to be is corporate logos and father and son teams. I like speendvision the way it is because they offer other forms of racing, i.e. World Rally Car Series and those guys who race transport trucks, now that's worth the extra $18 on my cable bill!!
  • I'm still around my friend. I just can't access web from work so it's evenings for me for the forseeable future. Thanks for the nice invite and well wishing...collections is chewing me up and spitting me out...


  • I have not posted in quite a while, work has been too busy. How ya doin'? Still have the two Pros? Still at TGIF? We need to get out there real soon. My 2000 ES has only about 5700 miles on it, but it runs great. Ever think about the Tribute? We have an Escape (clone) V6 at work and I've put around 1000 miles on it driving to landfills and other sites we work on. It is a blast to drive and has a very nice motor. Oh well, take care and keep zoomin'.

  • I'm the General Manager at TGI FRIDAY'S in Harrisburg. My manager team and I are working very hard to make our Friday's, the best in our franchise group. Gene, it would be great if you and your family would stop in for a great Jack Daniel's feast. You have an open invitaion for a visit, "including" the Mazda Protege Owners Discount!
    Send me an E-mail, with your home address and I will mail you, some entree cards.

    BTW, both my 2000 PRO-ES's have 28,000 miles. I hit a deer with mine last week at the Toll House Road Exit on Route #283, heading home to Lancaster. Hit it at 6:15 pm traveling at 70 mph, yikes. AAA, left me sit until 10:45 pm, I was very very mad. Every time I called them on my cell phone, they promised me; "The Tow Truck is on the way right now." Yea right! Sooo.... my Protege is at the Lancaster Mazda Collision body shop in East Petersburg. They know I'm fussy and promise top-box repairs, hehe! My PRO-ES should be fixed sometime next week.

    Please, stop by the restaurant soon. We can catch up on things. I'm also thinking about buying the Winter Tire Package from that you purchased last fall? Got a few question for you.

  • What is this I hear about a winter tire package. I've been trying to find some winter tires for my P5, and it seems nearly impossible. Seems that its hard enough to find many tires 195/50 16. I'm sorry but I don't feel that the dunlops on my car are gonna cut a Saskatchewan winter.

    Any idea's out there love to hear em...

    Check Typically, they "minus-1" size the tires and wheels for winter (making for a skinnier contact patch...the better for pushing through snow).
  • This time last year I bought a winter tire package from Tirerack for my '00 ES. I did the "downsizing" to 185/60 R14's with Bridgestone Blizzak tires. They delivered the next day after I phoned in the order. The tires worked very well in snow, pretty good in ice. Handling, as expected, was tame compared to OEM Potenzas. I would recommend such a wheel/tire package if snow is a problem in your area. It's nice to be able to wait a little longer to switch tires, since you can put them on the day before snow (if you get the package with the tires already mounted on steel wheels), and you can enjoy the stock handling a little longer.

    I still do check this forum, so you can leave me "mesages" here. You are going to make all those people in the Jetta forum jealous about the crab dip. :) Glad you liked it though. :)
  • protegextwoprotegextwo Posts: 1,265
    No kidding, that stuff is excellent! I was not trying to embarrass you in any way! I was just caught up in the holiday spirit. I feel credit should be given were credit is due. I think of myself, as a pretty good cook and I have added your Cheesy Maryland Crab Dip Appetizer to my entertainment arsenal. Kudos to you, Paul! I hope you and your Dad had a Merry Christmas.

  • vocusvocus Posts: 7,777
    Thanks for the compliments. :) Actually, my ex roommate came up with that recipe. It is good though. At least he was good for something... :)

    Hope your family had a wonderful holiday as well, and many more. :)
