Planes, Trains, Automobiles and Dad

I love my dad - I really do. And I know I was saying that I was looking forward to his visit, but seriously if I have to look at one more mode of transportation any time soon I'll probably go insane!

We spent Saturday at the Henry Ford Museum looking at EVERY car ever invented, then we moved on to the trains and wrapped up with the planes! We spent so long looking at all of the cars that we almost missed some of the other highlights of the museum (the chair Lincoln was shot in, the Rosa Parks bus, etc.). Then yesterday we spent the afternoon on the beach enjoying a beautiful "last gasp of summer" day - and my dad spent it watching the sail boats and freighters go by!

I really shouldn't be all that surprised - his last vacation out here was spent looking at all manner of boats. There was the Tall Ship Festival followed by "Coast Guard Days" - 24/7 boats, old and new. When my mom was out this spring we went to see a re-creation of the Nina. What is it with my family and transportation!?!

On the up side, TV premier week starts tonight so we'll all be plunked down in front of the boob-tube for "How I Met Your Mother" and "Two and a Half Men". Tomorrow we'll head to the Tiger's game to see if they can manage to get into the play-offs (ah yes the tivo will be in control of the premiers tomorrow!).

I really do enjoy seeing my dad, well, mostly anyway...

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved.
