Hey Skip, I told Mrs.BF about the new Ford Edge ST. She got a twinkle in her eye and wanted to know more, but when I told her the price she just got a frown on her face and said,"I haven't paid mine off yet, and I still like it".
Maybe I can start working on her for a new PP2 Mustang GTWink

G, good to hear you're back to normal. Hate to hear about everyone else having to deal with the disaster.

This past winter, when the river flooded and most of West Point got flooded, a disaster like that comes into perspective.
There is a house behind the gas station I often gas up at on 31W. The flood got up to about a third of the house. About a week or two after the flood, the clean up had started, and when you see all their possessions out on the street for pick up, and the lower half of the walls in the house torn out for replacement; you start to understand what they are going through. It sucks.

 Yeah that's what we see daily here.  Folks entire home piled up next to the road for cleanup.... from kids dolls to ruined photos.... everything folks owned now just in a pile next to the road.... very humbling.  will put your own life in perspective and make you reconsider your own stuff.

Morning folks,

Hope this finds you well.

Work is being a total sh1tt3r at the moment. Grey skies and not the hoped for cold snap yet, rather warm for October.

Scrummy

Was sure I had a point when I started this post...

Mornin gents.

I think there is a big difference in the specs G. The new ST has a 2.7L V6 with twin turbos. It puts out 335hp (not impressed), with 380ft/lb of torque (very impressed). It also has different springs (lowered) and bigger sway bars. I can't confirm it, but it may also have Magna ride dampers and a selectable ride. That's a huge difference in handling right there. It also come with either 20" or 21" wheels depending on which package you get. The larger wheels come with larger brakes.
Now I like the handling of Mrs BF's Edge for what it is, and it will cruse down the highway at 80 with no problem, until you get into the hills. Then it starts down shifting to maintain that speed, because the 3.5L V6 without the turbo doesn't have the torque, and I have to slow down (hard for me to do). The engine of the ST alone is enough to make it attractive to me and Mrs.BF.
But hey, Mrs.BF doesn't want a new Edge, but I wouldn't mind a new PP2 Mustang GTWink

Scrummy, sorry you're having a crap hole day. Just think about shooting something (game or targets; not your boss) and that should make you feel better.

I hate horse flies. I understand why dad told stories of how he tortured horse flies when he was a boy.

Mornin gents.

I'm crabby just about every day, and I do it at work and get paid for itEvil Smile; it's the better part of my charm.

Mostly clear skies and very humid going to 87 degrees.

Not only that but you don't have to sit in a pot of boiling water to get steam, just waking up does it....
