    Re: Honda engine quit

    Update. Took car out to mail some letters. Ran it up to red line in low gear. No problems. There is apparently a rev limiter when in neutral so as to avoid blowing up the engine. Won't go over 5K....

    I went online and found many, many sites devoted to this problem - apparently very common. Main culprit seems to be the ignition switch. I started the car and wiggled the key - the sure test....

    Ok - it stalled again, this time with me at the wheel in heavy traffic. Luckily we were on a hill and I was able to coast into the apron of a church driveway and out of harms way. On a slight...

    It's cruel the way carrots and radishes are just yanked out of the ground and sliced into pieces without any thought for their feelings. Vegetables have rights too!

    He was facing us. There was no place for him to go. This road is barely wide enough for two cars let alone a jogger. He never should have been walking or jogging in the roadbed after dark. No...

    Years ago, we went with a friend who had a small RV up to Massachusetts. Arriving at our campsite, it took him over 30 minutes to "level the wheels". Why? Apparently the refrigerator would not work...

    Driving to a lecture last night on a narrow winding road, as I came around a bend doing about 25-30 mph, two cars were coming towards me, one with bright lights. As they were about to pass, I...
