Escondido, CA

Well, some interaction of my hiptop and Typepad continues its annoying trend of not allowing me to post pictures. Pooters! I’ll keep trying today.

Diana and I are packing up to leave our room at the Escondido Palms Inn, the only place within a 10-mile radius with any rooms at all, due to the long weekend and a hockey tournament (Peter would be proud). It turned out to be a blessing, though — the rooms are clean (even our “smoking” room was fresh and non-reeky), the staff is super friendly and nice, and there’s a Mexican restaurant next door (Hacienda de Vega) to die for.

Summary: Escondido gets two thumbs up.

The road beckons! More later. 🙂

  2. A few years ago, it was difficult to find synthetic motor oils, and equally difficult to find someone who admitted to using them. Nowadays, however, you can find synthetic motor oils on the shelves of Wal-Mart, and other retailers, and the number of people turning to synthetic motor oils, particularly in light of the recent events affecting fuel prices, has risen greatly.
    So why do people use synthetic motor oils rather than sticking with the old petroleum based stand-bys which are admittedly cheaper?
    1. Let’s start with the cost per quart issue. Synthetic motor oils ARE more expensive at purchase. However, these oils last longer, requiring fewer oil changes. As a synthetic motor oil outlasts several changes of petroleum based lubricants, the ultimate out-of-pocket cost of the lubricant is less. This cost savings becomes even greater if you have someone else change your oil for you rather than doing it yourself!
