    I have to get my car's oil changed by my mechanic tomorrow afternoon. I'm also going to have him look over my car to make sure their are no new repairs needed.

    Wish me luck.

    I wish you luck, I am blessed with my hubby he is master of all trades but mainly cars, Not only every year I have a different car but now he is looking for a Rava SUV for me. For the last 15 years I had not worry about cars, Before that it was tragic . eh
    I hope you go with full syntetic, It lasts 10 km and engine likes that a lot .

    I did go with full synthetic oil, Dahila.

    Unfortunately for me, I will have to see my mechanic a little over a week from now once again because my car needs some work done to it. Luckily it's not going to cost a great deal of money, however.

    It's great to be able to see a local mechanic who is competent at auto repair work and who is honest. He's been my mechanic for many years.

    If he is honest keep him. I had a guy, Canadian guy who was fixing my car, even my English at this time was not so good. He was fantastic one, no problem to understand me and I trusted him completely. Mike was his name is a great , honest person

    I have kept him as my mechanic for a long time, and I'll continue to do so.

    I stopped going to my honest Mike when my hubby moved in, He had a huge business, autobody shop )
    I told him that we do not need two cars. but he is so scared of taking me shopping that he keeps rebuilding new cars for me

    I have flown probably over 100 times and I take a half of a Valium before I fly because sometimes I get a bit dizzy from the motion and the pill helps me quite a bit. I am not afraid of the plane crashing even though I have been involved with a few instances while flying which I will not go into unless I am requested to do so. I once sat near a Southwest Airlines pilot who told me how safe flying really is and that helped me quite a bit.

    I will tell one story that is not bad. My wife and I were flying out of BWI airport here in Baltimore in January 2019, on a direct non-stop flight to Phoenix Arizona. There was a snow storm the day before which continued into the morning of our flight. We were worried the plane would not take off. We boarded the plane on time and since there was ice, the plane had to be de-iced. After the deicing, the pilot came out in the isle and looked out the windows on each side and said he wanted to make sure the wings looked OK before takeoff and he said all looks good. We took off right into the snow storm and all was fine. The takeoff was a bit bumpy, but we were all OK and you will be too. I would not worry.
