    I had to replace a head light bulb on my pickup truck today. Can't understand why, it only had 275,000 miles on it!

    That is one hell of a lamp to stand up to 275,000 miles of bouncing around. Have you really owned the truck since new and never replaced that lamp? Pretty amazing if true, but sounds darned near impossible. Reminds me of that light bulb at the fire station in Northern CA, except I think it's even more amazing because of all the jostling and on and off cycles it has endured.

    Yes I have bought the truck brand new (1997 Toyota Tacoma). It is far from perfect, it is slow and not very comfortable, but it only left me stranded once! And it is paided for! It still works.

    To 2F/2F, I guess you got me confused, I'm not sure what you mean. 1997 meaning only 12 years ago.

    Good morning;

    I fixed the long hole in the front yard created when the 42 year old water line from the meter to the house could no longer resist the pressure of that one small rock ("select backfill," indeed). Oh, well, all of that was cheaper than continuing with the four times the normal cost for the water bill.

    2F/2F, I know that you are old enough to remember, let alone recognize, the 1900's.
    Enjoy;

    I opened up the bolt face on a '98 mauser for a belted magnum case head.
