There was an on air contest, and I won (listen here)!
Earlier on the show, there had been a discussion of how to pronounce Ohio governor John Kasich's name.
Mike, a Croation from Ann Arbor insisted it was pronounced KasITCH, where later in the interview the governor said it was pronounced KasICK.
Thus my little joke with Bill.
In other news today, Scherie is doing much better.
I have finally seemed to get over the three week sore throat/cough that has plagued so many people hereabouts without giving it to Scherie!
I have been struggling with an automotive problem for a couple months now.
When it was freezing cold my Taurus' battery would die after a few days of inactivity (Scherie not driving it).
Then as the weather warmed up, it continued to do so.
I took the car to an auto parts store where they "tested" the battery.
It tested good.
I then took it back to the shop I bought it at.
It's a 65 month battery and I only have 36 months on it, so I wanted some warranty relief.
They took me in to the shop and showed me that the battery was testing good.
You can skip this paragraph if you want.
I repaired the amp meter function on my voltmeter.
It had blown a fuse the last time I tried to diagnose something similar on my friend's car and he opened the door under test. The dome light came on and the meter couldn't handle that much current.
The meter showed more than normal parasitic drain (.75 amps), but not enough to kill a good battery in so short a time.
Wednesday I took the car to work as I was fixing the brakes on my truck.
Nine hours later I needed a jump. That night was church so I didn't get to the truck.
Next day I need to jump it to get to work and jump it to leave.
Thursday night I installed a new battery over the protest of my friend at the auto parts store.
Here it is two days later, and the car is behaving itself just fine.
On a side note, two purchases I do not regret, and only regret not being able to repeat them, are my 1999 Taurus 3.0 (not SHO) that is still a rocket ship and my 2001 Ranger (3.0) which is not.
