Hi there folks,
I found this recipe book and there are some pretty neat recipes in here...it is called "Practical Recipes for the Housewife.. its a whole book of recipes that someone must have copied page after page...anyway I thought I would share that with you as you may find a new favorite you can't live without...
Well yesterday was quite interesting...We decided to go look at cars just to find one that had GREAT gas mileage as it doesn't look like gas prices are going down anytime soon..so the FIRST and only place we stopped at was our Local Toyota dealer...well needless to say we were ONLY LOOKING as it was the FIRST place we stopped at..they had a car that we liked but we still wanted to shop around...OH have I mentioned how much we HATE SALESMAN! you know they have to do their good guy/bad guy routine for you so you think they are really out there to get you the best deal and all...well Shawn our salesman brought out the "Quote" and we looked it over and they were charging us $1,102.50 for tabs...now here in our state they are about $35-40 dollars...oooopppsss slight oversight huh..I guess they thought we wouldn't be looking to close...well he kept asking us what it would take to get us in that car..we told him to give it to us at a certain amount (which we knew they would never do) and that we were just looking and wanted to weigh out all of our options...so he goes back to his office....you know to run the numbers yet again...and out walks his manager...so now he proceeds to RE-HASH everything that Shawn just went over...and we talked for 25 more flippin minutes until I got up and said I have had enough, now you are pissing me off. We are reshashing and rehashing and now it feels high pressure and we are done here...so I walked away..and boy let me tell you...he stopped dead in his tracks and started back peddleling trying to make it right...I am no longer afraid (never was) but yesterday certainly made me say I don't care.. I am not going to waste my time and energy on this crap...they wasted 2 hours of our day for NOTHING...okay off my soap box....Ladies don't be afraid to just walk away and tell them what you think...It felt so good to just say we are outta here and good bye..Usually I am the nice one and Mike will just say we are done...well we did a role reversial and it felt so GOOD...Toyota is supposed to be a great company...love their cars..but honestly... I think they have lost our business... We have had only one guy that has ever impressed us.. his name was Paul Tew....that was over 24 years ago...you don't find them that often, but when you do....
Anyway, I have lots of stitchen to do today for my great friend Jenny so I hope you are all staying cool and happy..
