looking for a few good ideas

  amongst the irregular verbiage

We investigate the new Toyota dealership

We checked the Corolla in for its 9:00am service at the new Toyota dealer at Centennial Center. It's a nice place, they're not too busy, and able to interact and give advice about the car.

It turned out it was in good condition generally, but needed a new "serpentine belt". We got a complimentary car wash, and we'll have to get new tyres sometime in the next couple of months.

The rest of our day was filled with chores: Michaels for card stock and centerpiece ideas; to the Post office for stamps; the Bank for a cheque deposit...

Then, off to Stan and Jeannes to check out the recent spate of computer problems they've had. It didn't look good. Jeanne's hard drive is on its last legs. Bad clusters were popping up on scandisk like a cheap computer game. During the lengthy repeated scans, we duck around the corner for a quick dinner of chinese food.
