    I bought a used 1980 Toyota Tercel from Enterprise for $4500. It was wonderful, the manual transmission & car working sweetly. However, some lady went sideways in the snow, slide into our on-coming lane & we T-boned her. Powerful crash, breaking three ribs of my passenger because the seatbelts (no airbags) were holding her away from the crumbling console that would have killed her. Yeah, God & that Enterprise used car saved our lives.

    In Australia, it is 112 °F in Oodnadatta at 6:14PM; Uluru & Curtin Springs are "only" 109degF. at 5:14PM. The two cities are 802 straight-line miles apart.

    Wildfires have killed 9 people, & burned nearly 1000 structures, & 6million acres. Heatwave is increasing once again.

    And now concentrations of Koala Bears in Australia may be dying:

    From the article:
    The mid-northern coast of New South Wales was home to up to 28,000 koalas before the blazes began scorching the region last month...... Around 200 wildfires were burning in four states, with New South Wales accounting for more than half of them, including 60 fires not contained. (Oakbank Balhannah CFS via AP)

    Just barely , Bill ! And it's getting colder. If I'm lucky , smart , and brave ,
    I might get another 60 tank. But I just do the best I can.
