Belated happy solstice & perihelion!



Happy notable astronomical event named after a car, everyone!

(Why hasn't there been a car called Perihelion? Alliteration ususally works. Let's see... Pontiac Perihelion? Nope, brand's gone. Plymouth! Nope, gone. Packard! Nope! And now I'm drawing a blank on more P names.)

CRAP! If only I'd paid attention to your message back then. Now I'm trying to figure out if/when I'm going to get the coolant heater into the Metro this winter.
