USPS offers varied services

These two goups of mailboxes are across the highway from each other and have always caught my attention. I wonder if one truly is more efficient than the other.

Is this the antique and the modern, the old and the new, the inefficient and the efficient?

To me it seems more like the sterile and the natural.

What do you think?

WordPress Meetup Presentation


This month at the WordPress Meetup we are enjoying a presentation on I themes. There is much more than meets the eye.

Mileage is a State of Mind

I’ve talked to a lot of people lately complaining about their cars. The main complaint is “high mileage” so they think it’s time to get rid of the car and buy a new one. The “high mileage” they complain about is usually close to 100,000 miles, give or take a few thousand.

I laugh … ha ha ha ha ha …

Inara, my 2007 Dodge Magnum has 203,346 miles, as of Friday, so I’m not very sympathetic toward their cause. In fact, they are shocked when I tell them Inara has over 200,000 miles and that I am not planning on getting rid of her any time soon.

I jokingly tell them she is just getting broke in good and is running like a champ. Last month (July 2012) she averaged 23.073 mpg on my commute and 24.224 average for the last three months. I believe last month’s drop was due to the severely hot temperatures, which significantly affects a cars mileage. (That’s why they make cold-air induction systems)

How is your car doing? Is he/she new or just slightly broke in? Let me know in the comments …
