Actually, I thought I would have it into the dealer for something by now and was going to have them do it, but it's been running fine.
So, you sorta want something to need the dealer.

One good thing though, a little highway driving brings that pressure right back up a couple pounds

Not really... but kinda
I just figured something would have needed looed at by now. A rattle, a heated seat not working, something. I should have had them even the tires out before I drove off with it. One was 4 lbs lower than the others and it wasn't two weeks that the warning came on.

But no bag of $100 bills.



I'm thinking it's time I peeled those old potatoes I'm going to mash. So wrinkly and pock marked I don't want to leave the skins on.

I don't leave the skins on when they are disreputable.

You are correct. Life was easier before tire pressure monitoring. I'll just stick a piece of tape over it...

I drive a 2005 Volvo. It doesn't have tire pressure monitoring. It would probably make me crazy.

If your tires are filled to the correct pressure, the warning lights won't come on. They work in ranges of temps. So if your pressure is a couple of PSI below the proper setting, then colder temps will cause enough of a pressure drop to set of the warning.

So if you set your tire pressures correctly and your tires and valves don't leak, the warning lights will never come on.

The pot is on the burner with parts and water. The parts rise about 6 inches above the top of the pot. I'm hoping things will settle down a bit when they defrost so I can add aromatics.

I'm looking forward to a big load of delicious chicken stock at the end of the day.
To update, after simmering the pot for about 5-6 hours, I removed the bones and stuff, skimmed off the fat and reduced the stock down to about 5 quarts. Then it went outside in the grill to chill overnight.

It was a very thickly gelled stock. I used some of it tonight to make the tom yum goong for dinner. The rest is in the freezer in quart bags.

Andy, I throw all the bones, etc. from our rotisserie chickens in the freezer and you have inspired me to get them out and do the same. I hope my stock turns out as well as yours.

I am up once again, not able to sleep. But I am putting the time to good use. Besides catching up here, I am doing a task I have been dreading for awhile now - finishing the final income tax for Dad's estate. On one hand it will be good to get it done and out of the way, but on the other it is another reminder he is gone. It is so hard to believe it will be two years on Sunday. But he is not suffering and that is the main thing.

We found out last Saturday that our 2009 van that was sold to us on a car lot has almost bare tires. This is in addition to falsely selling us a warranty that doesn't do anything they said it would, not telling us that there was only one key and fob and then not wanting to do anything about it, and not even doing an oil change before selling it to us. We are going through GM Canada headquarters and another affiliated dealership to get the work done and to get the place we bought it from to pay for it. We are looking at about $1,000 in total, including four new tires. So the tire pressure monitoring is the least of our worries!
