Tired of the Oil Company Rip Off?!:
I sell nothing on the site other than a message that people really don't
need to pay the highest prices for gas. In addition, I'm adding a gas
saving quiz within the next few days. Although mostly based on common
sense, I promise, you'll learn at least 2 new things.

Davis Station Antarctica:
Chef, Mick Briscoe prepared an excellent dinner on Saturday night and not to be outdone Sunday cooks Rob Sharp with mung bean patties with an asian dipping sauce and Japanese miso soup with mushrooms for lunch and Robin Tihema with roast chicken and roast pork with roast vegies and broad beans in a white sauce for dinner set the benchmark for Sundays to come. Mick also put in a lot of effort on St Patrick's Day with green beer, green water and green bread and a fine beef and guiness casserole for dinner.
On Monday (20 March) numerous small groups of adelie penguins were observed on the sea-ice making their way out to sea. They had finished their moult and were departing for the winter.
Thursday (23 March) was World Meteorological Day and as part of the
celebrations, in a special phone hook up with Hobart, Joe Hopkins was
presented with a 30-year service award.
Cheers to all the folks at Davis Station....From The MountainGnome and our readers! Special thanks to Bob Jones for this weeks article.
Newark : A woman was reporting her car as stolen, and mentioned that there was a car phone in it. The policeman taking the report called the phone, and told the guy that answered that he had read the ad in the newspaper and wanted to buy the car. They arranged to meet, and the thief was arrested. (guess he sat in the corner to much at school.....)
Ridin' the Rails: Come on, lit's go fer another train ride. Hop aboard!
Think of it as a portal for travel in Mexico, particularly in the Mexico City area. El Turista has lots of links to all sorts of Mexican travel resources, including hotels, rental cars, airlines, and maps. Of particular note is a hotel finder that can search for accommodations by name or star rating. You can't make hotel bookings directly on the site, but you will find phone and fax numbers. Yes, the site is in Spanish, but so is Mexico. Here's the URL: http://elturista.com
Well folks, snow season is startin' to wind down....but ya say ya still want more?! Try Alyeska resort....the average snowfall is 560 inches per year! Some years find 700 inches of the white powder under yer feetsies! No matter what season ya decides to go, winter or summer, yer gonna find plenty to do and plenty of beautiful countryside to see. The lodging and fine food that's found there can keep anyone content.
Survival Tip:Do not panic!
Maintain a positive mental attitude if you become lost. Remain calm and control your fears; you will be able to think more clearly. Being lost is not dangerous if you are prepared. If you become lost, remember the acronym S.T.O.P: sit, think, observe, and plan. Once you have a plan, you will feel much better; action is an excellent antidote to fear.
Until next time: Be Safe ~ Be Happy!!
Show Off: Yessiree, show off that Classic Car ya restored....or send us a car tip...or maybe a great car site! E-mail all them goodies to email@example.com
KEYHOLE HEATERS: Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard me right: keyhole heaters! A company called ICP Global Technologies has developed a heating lock de-icer/flashlight. Very simply, the device is a small heating element powered by two AAA batteries. Push a button and the heating element (the size of a key) telescopes, allowing you to insert it into the vehicle's keyhole, whereupon it defrosts the lock cylinder tumblers. If it's dark and you can't find the keyhole, turn on the built-in flashlight! This is a sure winner for those of US who live in the "Frozen Tundra"!

Caffeine and Conception:
If you've been trying to get pregnant for several months without success, try limiting your total intake of caffeine in coffee, tea, cola, and cocoa, especially if you regularly take in more than 300 mg a day. Before you quit your intake cold turkey, you may want to figure out where your caffeine is coming from -- not all coffee is created equal. A typical 8-ounce cup of coffee from a diner contains 350 mg of caffeine, while an 8-ounce mug of gourmet coffee has only 175 mg.
NOTE: Always follow the advice of your Physician!
KIDS IN RESTAURANTS:
Some friends were amazed that we've survived as parents so long without knowing about this trick. You're at a restaurant with an infant--what do you do with him? We'd either hold the little angel in our laps or put him in the car seat on the floor. Did you know that restaurant booster seats, when turned upside down, make great holders for car seats? That way the waiter won't kick the baby by accident, and we can amuse each other by making funny faces. Be honest now--did you know about that one?

IDENTIFYING MILITARY MARKERS IN A GRAVEYARD: Ancestors often have military markers containing unfamiliar letters and symbols that are difficult to identify. These symbols usually identify an auxiliary unit to which descendants of veterans belong. Some resources concerning auxiliary units are:
Continental Society Sons of Indian Wars
Descendants of Mexican War Veterans
General Society of Colonial Wars
General Society of the War of 1812
National Society of the Children of the American Revolution
National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Home Page
Order of Indian Wars of the United States
National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution
GERMAN POTATO SALAD:
Stir in flour, water, vinegar, and sugar; mix well. Add salt, mustard, celery seed, and pepper. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly.
Fold in eggs, potatoes, pimientos, and bacon. Cover; heat over low heat. Serve warm or at room temperature.
So until next time, REMEMBER: "Capitalism is the extraordinary belief that the nastiest of men, for the nastiest of reasons, will somehow work for the benefit of us all..."
