Happy (belated) 1st Anniversary : Stacey, Brett ... and sorry I am late. I am a bad brother / brother-in-law :) Wheelin' : Went offroad Sunday, and while I am still very happy with my Jeep + tires :
... my winch broke (stupid dirty battery connections, fixed)
... (when I needed it the most - to un-stuckify a certain Land Cruiser)
... my clutch linkage disconnected from the pedal (cheap plastic bushing, now = home-grown metal ring + cotter pin) :)

I pledge allegiance, to Ted Nugent: “A Ted Nugent campaign (for Michigan governor) would certainly be a treat for voters if his extravagant rock shows are any guide to how he would conduct his rallies. At his concert Monday night in Waco, Texas, he instructed U.S. military personnel in the audience to challenge anyone who didn’t say the Pledge of Allegiance. ‘If they ain’t saying anything, just go ahead and knock ‘em down. You may resuscitate them immediately,’ Mr. Nugent told a laughing crowd.”
