Hola Soledad!
No me extraña tu presencia.
Casi siempre estas conmigo, te saluda un viejo amigo!
Que te encuentres uno mas…

Hola Soledad!
Esta noche te esperaba!
Aunque no te diga nada,
es tan grande mi tristeza – ya conoces mi dolor.

Yo soy un pájaro herido que llora solo en su nido
porque no puede volar
y por eso estoy contigo… Soledad, yo soy tu amigo-
ven, que vamos a charlar

A much better site description from Networkworld.com:

The Tank on Empty idea is simple enough: The site invites motorists to ignore the fuel-warning light for as long as they’re comfortable, note the number of miles they drive before refueling, and input the data online. For example, 30 of my fellow Toyota Corolla owners report having driven an average of 52 miles after the light, with one fearless soul checking in at an astounding 99 miles (of course, there’s no way to verify these claims).

Stats for my car, a Nissan Altima:

As my bank account is always in the negative, I think this information is going to prove very useful.

How To Be Happy

Today I recognized one of the reasons why I’m a generally happy individual: little things please me. The minute, mundane accomplishments of life fill me with contentment.

An example: every Tuesday morning is when we have to put out our garbage, our recycling box, recyclable plastics (a separate bag), and any garden waste that we don’t compost (another separate bag). When I come home after work and see that empty box and that empty compost bag by the door, I feel exceedingly pleased. I actually smile. Success, I think. Result. Tick in the box. Another minor task completed.
