Re: Who's gotten vaccinated?

Why is the Canada death rate so low, despite lagging in vaccinations? Simple. Canada exported its dumbA$$ to the South. We aren’t done with this yet.

Re: Shower faucet help needed - humming/vibration

I got 15 years out of my last ( hot) water heater ( technically, a cold water heater) which had 7-9 girl showers daily. Switched to an awesome on demand unit and should have done that years ago.

Re: Volvo Findings! (What have you found on Craigslist?)

Saw this shared over on Turbobricks, 300k+ mile flash green wagon. It didn't sell, probably because people get so worked up over mileage. Probably the cheapest flash green around, these things go for stupid money. https://www.ebay.com/itm/265187288048?nma=true&si=vEq%252FForaPWZ27Fxod1STCVEyD3I%253...
