Wrong. We use this group for EVERYTHING.
I also have tried to get the OT's elsewhere. Aw, the heck with it. Long as
it's marked OT, it's up to you to decide to read it...or not.
There are times when I don't feel like any rambling discussions, so I skip
them. Other times, something strikes a nerve. Other times, something has
struck MY nerve, and I make a post about it (and if you look through, you'll
see I have started some pretty controversial discussions here...)
The underlying factor is, there is a 'core' group that's here every day. We
basically all like each other, even if we don't all share the same myopic
view (either way) and even though we resort to calling each other names on
occasion...OK more often than not.
But, we ARE here to back each other up when a problem is encountered, either
with our cars (and I have even gotten help here with my Chryslers and my
snowblower!) or in Life in General. If you like it, so be it. Welcome! If
you don't good luck, because as I have found since my humble beginnings
here, whining doesn't get you anywhere.
Got a question about a car? ASK IT! You will get an answer if somebody has
one, or you'll get some pointers.
Sooner or later, I can almost guarantee your personal view of Life As We
Know It will come to the surface. Then you're hooked, and we have you!
