I suggest you take it out of the car, add distilled water, clean the battery posts then place it on a stump in a clearing on a sunny day, for 6 hours, then put it back into the car.

Betcha it will start the car -

Iffen that don't work, Bubba says to put two of these in it (hooked in series).

Can't add water. Battery is one of these. They are $200 a pop. I believe I have the stock hardware to ditch the light weight battery and go to the stock BCI group 26R battery. Isn't that the same as the twins?

Only problem is the extra weight in the rear will no doubt send me spinning.

Not to worry, the extra weight you gained over Thanksgiving should offset it -

I hope my parents can make it at least till 79. I think my mom's parents were around that age when they died.

My grandparents on my dad's side lived till late 80's (grandpa was.. 95ish? when he passed earlier this year, I'm terrible for not remembering his exact age).

A lot bigger then I was expecting. At least itís on my maturity and reading level. Everyone in the office has gotten a kick out of it. Thanks for the suggestion @ScoobsMcGee

If I open my eyes in the morning then I set a new goal to repeat it the next day. So far it's working.

My father's youngest brother passed in his mid 50's (heart). Their twin sisters passed within a couple of years of each other in their mid to late 60's. My father (heart) and oldest brother (cancer) both passed nearing the end of their 69th year. My sister passed at 80 (heart) and our mother at 91 (twisted bowel). Just one brother age 77 and myself age 67 left. I've had operations for colon cancer and two forms of skin cancer plus, triple by-pass surgery.
Every day is gift!

My family is all over the place when it comes to the time to die. But among non-smokers it's a question of whether cancer finds you - with a few other oddities thrown in. No consistency, which is both good and maybe less good? 90 is not uncommon. Plenty break 100. Yet a handful failing to reach 70 and 80.
I'm on the "ahh, good morning. I made it another day." already. Glad to be here. Not sure WHY I'm here, but maybe I'll figure it out tomorrow. Theoretically I have quite a few tomorrow's. Parents just hitting 70 (or about to.)

Saw a gen2 BRZ in person for the first time today. It was on a truck on I-95 heading north through South Carolina.

My great grandma was 102 in pretty good physical health when she decided to stop eating one day. Both grandfather's are 90+ and still kicking. In one case, literally.

Just think, if you still lived at home with your parents, how much you would weigh by now -
