  • Re: What Would It Take for YOU to buy a diesel car?

    So for obvious reasons, the dealer that sold me the 12 VW Touareg TDI (now 3 years old) wants it back
    Call me cynical, but the "we want your used car" letters are a pretty common marketing technique with most dealers/brands. The latest versions include a "hand signed" Post 'Em note affixed to the letter.

    That said, sometimes you can get a good deal if, as @gagrice says, they don't lowball your trade too much.

    Speaking of fish, the pangasius is about to get hit with a "Chicken Tax". The Mississippi catfish lobby is still strong.

    Had a great trip into the Swanson with said Salem friend back in the early 80s. The portages were especially difficult since he made us pack in 10 (seemingly 20) pounds of potatoes. I understood that part better after we base-camped on an island for three days and ate them with trout for breakfast and dinner. :)

    The trout fishery up in Southern Idaho is interesting and the area is the largest producer of commercial trout in the world. The university here is spinning off a commercial farmed shrimp operation.

    Have not left yet.
    Oh, those fish tacos you posted were just a come on eh?

    We visited a friend in Salem years ago and went to a tulip farm in full bloom, and took photos of us surrounded by "miles" of tulips. Really neat. No idea if it was the same place, don't remember having to pay to get in.

    Road tripping for the rhodies would be fun too.

    I once owned a cow we called GB for short. You can imagine the full name. Never ate it.

    Speaking of trucks, saw a '59 Apache this morning, complete with the suicide doors.

    Last I checked, you could grab copies of Movie Maker free from Microsoft and use it to edit clips and audio. VLC works too and it's open source.
