I am generally opposed to extended warranties for automobiles. More like very opposed to them.
Then my lovely bride makes a forbidden purchase of a used Fword Edge. Then on top of that, she pays for the Extended Warranty.
It developed a big leak in the bizarre transmission at about 30,000 miles. It was covered.
Then this week, with 63,000 miles, the timing chain driven water pump began to leak like a sieve. The repair requires removal of the front drivetrain, wiring harness, hoses, and motor mounts, then raise the entire car so that the engine will come out the bottom. Then you have to remove the timing chain without losing track of valve timing of the V6 engine.
Its all covered by the Extended Warranty!
Never been so happy to be so wrong.

Yep, it's hard to be wrong and appear smart. Wait, it's the wife that's smart, so is Carl still wrong?

Thank you for expanding my vocabulary , 52Carl. "Fword Edge" . You just gotta appreciate the thought.

Carl, In the top 5 inches for forest soils in North Carolina, for example, 124 million arthropods estimated in one acre, 4.5 million are insects. In 3 inches of leaf litter and humus in a Pennsylvania forest sample, 9759 arthropods per square foot, figuring to 425 million arthropods per acre. A couple of takeaways:

1. You're never alone in the forest
2. With each falling tree, there are tens of thousands of lives lost.

I don't think we should be so cavalier about it. I think, for admitting to Ford ownership, you should figure out how many arthropods were in the footprint of your falling tree and then observe 3 minutes of silence for each one.

I learnt about 20 years ago that If I am wrong and sorry that Mrs. Rod becomes very kind and loving very quickly.... it worked really well for about 5 years until I told her, then she said I couldn't be wrong and sorry every time... She has even admitted that she was wrong and sorry,,, 3 maybe for times... which averages out to once every 10 years or so.


Another quality post.
