Hey GasGuage,

Are you really working on breaking the addiction? Or do you simply mean that you've worked to reduce your gasoline use? (Please, it's an honest question, I mean NO disrespect. Please see what I am trying to do to kick the addiction.

Also, nice economy on your S10. I was getting almost the exact same economy this summer when the weather was good. Not doing nearly so well now with the cold and the snow.

I agree with Blueflame. I don't agree with many ways that my tax dollars are spent, including bad foreign policy, military use, etc, but I still pay my taxes.

A big part of the reason why the Amish live the way they do is to obey the scripture about "being no part of the world". You gotta respect anyone willing to work that hard to follow through on their beliefs. Ironically, most of the business dealings the Amish have with the "English" is to earn money to pay for *guess what?* Taxes!
