    Bob, AFAIK that corn gas has been lifted (for now).
    Now if I had a 1000 Gallon Underground tank, man would I hoarde me some good ole fashion MTBE gas and just *top* it off with Nitrogen...to keep things fresh

    IO use STABIL to keep my big stash (5 gallons, lol) fresh. It works great for up to 2 years at double dose.

    Nice to hear that you made it Bob.

    I can not believe that they let the Shuttle get damaged after Houston gave it to them.

    Houston was just sending them a little of what they wanted.

    Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad.

    I hope New York enjoys what we gave them...

    After all they did ask for it.

    There is so much else going on with damage to property and loss of life, I have heard ABSOLUTELY NADA about the Entrepid museum and the Enterprise. I was first able to buy gasoline yesterday from a Mobil station run by furriners from Dunkin Donutville that were charging rip off prices, but I was happy to fill up anyway. I won't even report them for price gouging because they were "within the max price range" in my area. They charged 30 cents a gallon more than the average local price, but, hey, I got my fuel for another week and a half or so. They (the friggin news media) don't be surprised if the gasoline lines are still around for another few weeks.

    Odd and even days? yeah right? nobody to enforce them, and with fights breaking out at gas stations for smaller wrongs, its bad.
    We New Yorkers aren't open carry, and most criminals carry handguns, legal or not. concealed or not.

    Thursday we had a Nor-Easter that brought us freezing temps and left us covered in snow. The Red Cross still needs money to provide food, shelter and clothing for many thousands here. Not many of us have time to think about the museum at pier 86 in NYC.

    Thanks for the Enterprise. I'll look at it next Summer, I guess. I paid for it too;)

    Still 135 thousand people without power here 12 days after the storm.

    I am truly lucky and ever so grateful that me and my family have power.

    It is those times which show what someone is made of, Bob. Some people will take advantage or hurt anyone. In my eyes, they are wasting their lives, they are missing the point to it.

    I donated several hundred dollars to the American Red Cross after the 2004 Indonesia Tsunami, and again for the disater relief after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. Again for this disaster.

    It's not much, but every little bit helps, and I hope that there is some reciprocation.
