Is it me or do the first three paragraphs only serve to discourage you from reading the last sentence, which is the only one with any meaning?

This is the website's picture for the splicer:

This is what I removed from my car:

Clearly once I fixed the leak I should have added the proper mix of coolant.

How much rust do you think came just from the splicer?

The fun thing is that you can bypass a heater core without buying a splicer. You just detach the short hose from the block, connect the long hose where the short hose goes, and make sure that the rest of your cooling system is performing to specified parameters!

I have been trying to figure out how to test the original heater core. I keep asking and someone finally told me that a radiator shop could fix it. Unfortunately, we do not have any in our area. The third one was not supposed to arrive until next week, but AutoZone says that it is coming today!

Progress report season opened up on Wednesday and I wrote five reports, but I went to bed early. Thursday was my brother's birthday and somehow I needed 9.5 hours of sleep.

I kept the ice cream and soda in a cooler in my car with two bags of ice. The ice was frozen around the tub, but the ice cream still melted.

It is 82 right now, just like yesterday, but my dash is 130! Clearly I should have cracked my windows and used a sunshade! Maybe I should have put an awning over my car!

I had three make-up sessions scheduled this morning, but the last client had technical difficulties, so I spent an hour attempting to be productive in my office [in the shed]. The mom finally said their Internet was not working and I suggested we try again next week.

Well, I am going to finish my reports and work on my car!
