Today has been a strange day. I have been working on JFASN #139, but it was so late in the day when I was able to begin that there is no chance of finishing it on time.
Rather than throw out a half-baked review, I am going to hold it for next weekend. Besides, if you live in the Portland area, you are not sitting at home at your computer waiting breathlessly for my inspired prose. You are out enjoying the summer-like weather Portland is experiencing.
Please join me for JFASN #139 next Saturday.
On an unrelated note, I want to do a little bragging. The JazzJock Limo (a 1991 Honda Accord) rolled past a milestone the other day.
Yes, you are reading that correctly. 300,000 miles! AND, it still gets over 30 MPG on the highway and between 25 and 29 around town.
Thanks for reading this.
