I have had some sort of cold since the 15th of Dec. Thought I was getting better, but I feel terrible again. Guess it is time to involve the doctor. :(

Aha! You were the one who sneezed upon me!

Sorry, Chopper. Get well soon! I feel like heck too. Back to work tomorrow.

I started getting sick right before going on the holiday break. Was sick the entire time off. Started getting better when it was time to go back to work. I went back to work on Monday. I guess the School District I work for didn't care about the fact that all other districts had Monday off. Had a presentation to do today and did ok. On the way home I started getting sick again.

Yeah, I'm getting something creeping up on me, low grade fever. No cough, but stuffy, sneezing like crazy. And just feel icky, not sick enough to stay home. Steady headache, but not bad enough for a precursor to a migraine.

It has less than 42,000 miles on it--it is in mint condition--I WANT it, I need it). The problem is it is in the US, I'm in Canada (this because my dad traded my mom's car in after telling me I could have it--I love my BGF). I have made no fewer than 12 phone calls (and visited US and Canadian customs) about this. I still don't know if I have to pay duty on this gift. Why? Because the number I was given by Cdn customs told me I had to call this number. Called the number, person called me back, said no, I had to call this number...etc. the last # I got, well the office is closed today. If it is a holiday, why is my TOU electricity not on "holiday" rates? Another rant.

I have gotten confirmation there aren't any open recalls on this VIN. I have gotten confirmation from the organization that has to safety it that it has everything it needs, but no one can tell me if (a) I can accept it as a gift for $1 and not pay HST, or if (b) because it was manufactured in Sweden, I have to pay duty on it and what the rate is. I don't want to pay for any more repairs on my existing vehicle (or have it e-tested next month to re-license it), if I can get this car in at the end of my trip to TX. Why is it so hard to get this information!!! And yes, I've spent hours on the web besides on the phone...it should be easier than this! At least she won't tell me she's traded it/sold it after all of this. She just says "are you sure you want it...her husband has already bought snows/winters for it, rims, and taken it it for a tuneup" YES!!!
Good luck with the Volvo. What year is it? I will be looking to trade in my 19 year old Volvo for a newer one as soon as I get some money from my mum's estate. The, hopefully final, hearing is in early February.

It is a 1998, but it only has 42,000 miles (~61K). It is that "little old lady drove it to church" car.

Yup--manufactured in Sweden. I loved my other Volvo. I had it forever (about 18 years). I like Volvos. I figure I will have this one for awhile...at least another 130K.
