What do you remember about your first car?
People seems to have strong memories about their first car. When I was little my parents carried our teepee on top of our Volkswagen van. That van was cozy! Inside, my mom had covered the walls with paisley contact paper, and hung printed curtains.. (1970s)
I remember my first car because people would always ask to buy it. I ived in Sacramento, CA at the time and my first car was a 1976 Olds Cutlass Supreme. We couldn't go a week without someone pulling up next to us in traffic and asking to buy it.
Back when I lived in England, I remember my older brother selling me his 1978 Ford Escort Popular when he upgraded to an Escort Ghia. I would had been 17 at the time and thought it was the best thing on wheels. My brother knew what he was doing and lots of money later, I sold it off and "upgraded" to a Ford Cortina. Wisdom copies from experience they say...
It was my grandmother's car. She hit so much in that car. I always worried for everyones safety. She also ran over my Razor scooter in the driveway in Florida. A really old vehicle that I drove many times over 80 m.p.h. in. I also met my partner in that car. He worked on it and told me it wasn't worth the effort but we got off well after that.

her engine, her purr, the radio stations.........the time my younger sister drove her home, because, I had too much to drink.........and the patrolman, who let us get away with it!
her turn signal fluid, her back up grease
the size of her tires
how many months of flipping burgers it took me to save up for her cost
OH...............if I could get her back today...............she would be among the great American classics..................
Oh, yeah, I am a " car chick " !
a 67 Pontiac Grand Am that passed everything but a gas station.

What was your first computer?Mine was a Tandy 1000HX, it had a 3.5 inch floppy, no hard drive, 256k of RAM and ran on an early version of MS-DOS. I upgraded the RAM to 512K and wore the keyboard down playing video games as much as possible. I got it at the Radio Shack in my old neighborhood.

What do you remember about the best teacher you ever had? What was his or her name?There is something about a great teacher that makes us even remember their name. We are forever grateful to them so I thought I'd give us a chance to pay a tribute to that teacher we will never forget.

Is it worth upgrading to Windows 10? 7 is offering a free upgrade. What are the pros/cons?I'm not sure I want to take advantage of the offer. Has anyone tried Windows 10 yet? If so, what are your thoughts? I'm comfortable with Windows 7. Does the latest version provide a better user experience?...
