 Getting sick of brakes on cars. Drove to town to pick up my car after caliper had supposedly been repaired. Drove it home - got out - brakes burning and wheel hot. Calling repair shop again - now ordering new caliper and rear brake hose - fortunately caliper put on 20,000 miles ago has lifetime warranty, but still have to pay labor and hassle of getting it back on. Still haven't figured out why both rear brake pads burned up in 10,000 miles - my guess is that the other caliper isn't worth a crap either. Will have to check them both in about 5,000 miles. Must be time to go to Toyota and have them put on some of their "made from gold" calipers. Of course, if I do that, I won't be eating for a few months....

Added a new blog - "Talking Points" to the list on the right.
