I'm posting this on the principle that you should try to post something to your blog daily.
I was back at work last night after a week's vacation. It was a poor man's vacation, with no money to go anywhere. This morning I went to get my car inspected and my car registration renewed - - done and done. My car is so old that it has no onboard diagnostic computer to plug into, so here in NC all it has to do is pass a safety inspection, which consists of verifying that the lights all work and that the windshield wipers are in good shape. $13 and out the door.
