looking for a brake upgrade suggestion. Would like to improve the braking ability of my 84 camper. Has 14" wheels. Looks like the cost to do the 'big break' setup would be $2500 in parts alone for my situation. So is there a fix for my existing 14" wheels, spindles, etc? Maybe something from Audi or off another VW model. Suggestions would be super appreciated. Kirk

Anybody know about the Nolichucky Gorge Campground in TN. Plan to go, but the website has a bad virus, according to my computer, so I can't see it.

We have had a terrible run with cats recently. Two went missing when we moved in July, and then one of the new cats I got in August passed away today I don't really know what happened. He acted like he had a cold which is generally no big deal, but within 24 hours he was passed out on the bathroom floor barely breathing. I took him to the emergency vet (to the tune of $500) only to have him pass away hours later as they did nothing for him

So R.I.P. my dear Bamboo. I miss you!

Lauren, I feel your pain. We lost two of our cats within a week of each other. They both were poisoned or ate a poisoned mouse.

Please accept our sincere condolences on your lost? Please try to remember the good times you had with Bamboo and he will never be too far from you!! Neal

Thanks guys. I miss any of my pets who have disappeared. I hate wondering what happened, but take a little ease in thinking they have found another good home (I even saw it happen once)... After seeing Bamboo suffer and know that there was really nothing I could do (thousands of dollars were not going to guarantee that he would survive or have a happy life after) it hurts even more.

I am trying to find this plant that I used to have at my house in Florida to put at his grave. It is a gorgeous tricolor foliage plant that I thought was an azalea, but I cannot seem to find it anywhere now. The closest thing I have found to it is tricolor star jasmine, but that doesn't look quite like what I had. I want something nice to remember him by. I am glad that if it had to happen that at least I have a place to put him and remember him... just under the bird houses.

sad to hear about Bamboo.

could you be looking for a variegated Pieris? Flaming silver is one cultivar. Looks similar to azalea and has white variegation around the leaf edges. New growth is pink.

I think it's too bad that everybody's decided to turn on drugs, I don't think drugs are the problem. Crime is the problem. Cops are the problem. Money's the problem. But drugs are just drugs.

No, that isn't it. The closest thing I have found is tricolor star asiatic jasmine, but i know that isn't it. The pink is not new growth, it is speckled on the leaves just like the green color. this is what the jasmine looks like
