I've been wanting to purchase a used vehicle of some kind for future adventures before I retire---for things such as camping, exploring back roads, traveling, something to bring the fun in driving and vehicle ownership back to me which i seem to have somehow along the way-----completely lost.....As always I am born on the wrong continent---I'd really love to buy a used, Lada Niva....of course, unknown here in the United States---although imported and sold everywhere else in the world!
This Strong like Bull--little Siberian two door, 4x4---4 cylinder would be perfect for us...the Lada Niva is known for being "always broken, but always running".....
It is very retarding to be me, very difficult----I'll never find one of these here at a reasonable price if at all----

I am on leave effective this weekend for two working weeks----I have been banking my leave for 5 months.....We're staying put--working on the house, the garden, and personal projects. The material that just seems to never, ever get done no matter how hard you try to get to it----things like------- I have collated together our emergency medical supplies into a labeled backpack hung within easy reach---mounted fire extinguishers in the food storage area.......sharpening knives and organizing edc equipment....the construction of the front and back porches are now complete and I cleaned up after the project the other day---this morning we had front and back doors open to the air and had coffee on the front porch....excellent.

You have absolutely got to see this---lizard leaps on the morning news guy's crotch and he spasms like nothing you've ever seen before---unbelievable!

I am looking forward to the release of PRIEST on DVD....I've been following this movie since pre-production....A war, humans against vampires, a sect of warrior priests arose to save society---with the war supposedly over they are marked and useless...but yet----it's not over. The stills from the movie look so very dark and styling which is something I enjoy---I like that Gotham city dark, brooding climate in my movies----go figure?

One of the best everyday carry movies is SALT.....Jolie pursued by the Feds, runs to her apartment where she keeps a complete bug out bag just in case she has to make the emergency Go thing happen---money, mini laptop, weapons, clothing, everything necessary for life on the run, for a few days, is in the bag.....I am thinking of renting the movie again just for that, the rest of the movie didn't do much for me...

I have often felt that same way on cars. But then my wife says that the vehicle I like tend to be very offbeat.

"Salt" and "Preist" were both good movies. If you get a chance watch "The Eagle"
