Shouldn't you just be able to drive it? Benz make heavy cars! I hope you enjoy it all! And can figure out how to USE all those features. We are still trying to figure out how to get the darn Navigator to take us where we want to go!

(PS... You shoulda bought a motorcycle...)

Although I haven't practiced Judaism in more than 40 years, I find it interesting to note that virtually all of the Jewish holidays (with only one or two real exceptions) are 'festivals' rather than heavy, solemn occasions. A pretty happy bunch!

Thank you.

I don't practice the faith anymore either. Though I recognize the heritage and enjoy the festivities.

Nice. It is like a station wagon here, or what use to be called that.
Our first ones were a 450 convertible and the 500 something. I think the thing I loved most was the seat warmers, especially in the snow.

You will love it. Have fun exploring all the buttons and controls.


Right now it is neighbor Christmas exchange day, so we are exchanging gifts and thanking each other for being such good neighbors and watching out for each other.

My mother always would remind me of the various Jewish holidays (she absolutely refused to acknowledge the fact that I chose a different religion 40 years ago) when ever they came up. But with her passing, it's only the Internet that tells me when something is happening now.

That sounds like a very nice custom! Is it usual where you live?

Stitchawl
Sadly no. The Custom was more in common when I was little and the town was mostly rural and small. I returned many years later and now the rural town is mostly a city with pockets of agricultural land. There are only about five of us close together that do this by me. I have neighbors that bring my garbage cans in when I am at work and we invite each other over when we have family get-to-gethers. They exchange Christmas gifts with my parents also plus we bring home plates of dessert from our parents to share, especially when it is a favorite by one of the moms or aunts.

I'm modifying the case for my iPhone 5. I need to carry it in my shirt pocket so I can hear the ringer, but then if I bend over, it can slip out. So I bought some of that rubber no-slip matting being sold everywhere these days, and with a few drops of super-glue, made a sort of wrap-around the sides and back of the case. Also, this case didn't have a loop or opening for a strap, and I like just a single cord about the same length as the phone, just to give that extra 1/2 second's worth of time to catch the phone if it starts to fall. Sooo... I punched two little holes in the edge of the case, threaded in some nylon string, braided in two little wooden beads, with three different braid patterns, and now I'm waiting for the black 'Shoe-Goo' that I used to reenforce the rubber under the string to harden! Fun project for a snowy afternoon!

I don't know where else to put this, but I wanted to share it... On our walk today, we went into a pet shop we'd never been in before. Big fancy place inside a mall...
And I saw this... grabbed a photo of it with my camera before they asked me not to... This is dog food. Not people Food. Dog food. Each plate selling for around $6.70 USD... Smoked pork, Meatballs, and Hamburger.. each with a side dish, of course.

I bet it sells well too.

Does that sign say "Many" Christmas?

Don't forget to share a pic of your project.

The '10% off' sign? No, that says 'frozen cake.' I didn't include it in this picture, but they were selling doggie birthday cakes too...
