Friday Night Potpourri

A highly ordered set of thoughts disguised as random - for a Friday night:

  • Not a faith-healing church. Julie Neidlinger at Lone Prairie mused about the newly added blue parking stalls at the front of her church parking lot.
  • Mrs. Scott and I agree that lately (caused by the recession?) the number of people driving 10-20 mph below the speed limit on the freeway has dramatically increased. And it's creating some dangerous driving conditions.
  • In a related topic, I asked several people in the body shop/rental car businesses (in context of my recent fender bender and subsequent car repairs) about the effect of the economy on their businesses. Accidents are up, despite fewer people driving, but repairs from those accidents are down, people choosing to live with the dents.
  • The sales rep at our new auto insurance company that wrote up our policies was the greeter, along with his wife, at the church we attended last Sunday.
  • The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing? Well, that's better than the left hand not knowing that there is a right hand.
  • Another song from my childhood. I just started wearing these, and I loved the song on the clock radio. Listen to the reference to Exxon gasoline in the lyrics! Tch-tch.
