Notes from the Constant Battle Against the Forces of Evil…

I'm vexed with my car. First, it's been smelling hot (no, not in an arousing sort of way, but in a "something plastic is overheating" kind of way). The fluids are fine, it might be a hose or belt, but I don't know enough about what to look for to diagnose much. I'm going to try to take it to a mechanic on Monday. I haven't found one in the area yet. Not looking forward to that.

Second, the front tires have been slowly leaking air. I've got a small air compressor that plugs into the cigarette lighter, so I can top them off as needed, but that quickly grew tiresome. The bad news is that the cheap wheels (a legacy from the previous owner) are corroding, and can't form a good seal. The fix is to replace the wheels when I get new tires. However, these tires are fairly new, so I'm supposed to put air in every couple days for the next 40,000 miles? That leaks and sucks at the same time!

Something Exciting!

At urging from faithful readers, I've decided to expand the Dr. Eldritch newsletter to include horoscopes! I had the idea a while back, but was reluctant to take on the extra effort (I mean, there were weeks when I couldn't come up with a good letter, not to mention twelve brilliant astrological forecasts). So I gave it a try, and found that I'm eerily good at it! Want to read yours? Well, they won't be on the website, only in the newsletter, so you'll have to subscribe to read it! Don't whine; it's free, I'll never sell your email address, and you won't get third-party spam (from me anyway, I'm not responsible for the rest of the Internet). Why not sign up? You'll get un-common sense advice, the Tip of the Week AND the Dr. Eldritch HOROSCOPE OF MYSTERY, guaranteed to cover subjects ORDINARY astrologers won't discuss!
