Just to show how stupid buying a new car can be. Dad's loan is 0% interest and he's been paying $1000 every month since the loans inception. He still may barely break even selling it. Basically paid $1000 a month to lease the truck.

Two of my guys lease those...for less than $600 a month.  Loaded ones as well.

Hit a bench pr this afternoon.

Managed 1x5 @ 275 lbs, 1x6 @ 275 lbs, 1x5 @ 280 lbs for my top 3 sets.

Felt really good too.  Not too shabby for a 5' 10" 195 lbs mid thirties father of 3.

 

Keep it up. Nice work.

You and Ronda need to take a mini summer trip to our house.  We could lift and night, and you guys could get out on the water during the day. :)

One of the worst. 

My question was more does it actually slow down a modern machine?  I assume it has hooks into tons of stuff since it syncs tons of things for me

Aaron specifically wants to run a low weight browser. I dont like it for security reasons. But I use it often until recently. 

 

I wish I would have made better use of it, like you do.

Finding more and more companies looking for a project manager with construction or IT experience and certifications. I found a good bit looking for more generalized experience instead. I met with the VA rep yesterday, and he's thinking it would be a perfect fit at the VA in a few spots.

In the meantime, I'm still plugging away at school, and concentrating on finishing the semester strong.

Looking at a new role? With the boys getting older, being home more isn't a bad thing at all.

Not working. If it's the Voodoo Blue Yota I saw, damn solid work.

I like it on the Tundra. That's about it.

Yes this is a love it or hate it color. I stumbled upon this setting in the show room when I had mine in for the air bag recall. Not sure if it was meant to be, but the numbers were very good and I could not leave it there. 

My previous dealership always sold the Trd pro above sticker and when they had the special colors they would buy them and mark them up even more (3k-8k). As luck would have it Fairfield was bought by Ciocca and the owner assure me that he will never do that and never has. He showed me 2 day one Supra's that they sold for sticker price. 

Yes this has way more off road than I will ever dream of using, but I have a garage to keep my pavement princess pretty. 

 

After the owner saw my work he wants to get together to see if real ceramic coating may be an option he can offer at his dealerships rather than just what they offer.

Wait?  That is yours?

Yes, I broke one of my rules to never trade a 4runner.
