Just turned 100K | Had to share that our 1992 Toyota Camry just turned 100,000 miles yesterday on a trip to Reading. Bought this exceptional “bullet-proof” vehicle from a Columbia area shop just about 1 1/2 years ago when it had 68,000 miles on the odometer.  Since then it’s turned out to be a favorite car to drive. It’s been a low-cost car to maintain and it averages over 25 MPG  in overall driving (back roads, highway). We took the car to the Toyota dealership in Lebanon to have a spare ignition key made; the shop foreman there told us this car will last forever. He said, “You’ll get 300,000 plus miles on it; it’s “bullet-proof.” Thanks, Barney’s.

library no beltLibraryNet: A Dragnet Parody | The Library System of Lancaster County produced this nifty video: “Introducing our LibraryNet video that’s a parody of ‘Dragnet’ the classic TV show of the 1950s and 1960s. We were inspired to create a video that focuses on ‘just the facts’ about all that our public libraries have to offer!” Too bad there was no technical expert assigned to the production: Friday’s partner, Jane, is not wearing a seat belt.
