Diagnostics, Not Just for Breakfast Anymore (Post #490) 4/24/2014

Florida Orange Juice Growers Association had a slogan in the 1970’s, “Orange juice, it’s not just for breakfast anymore.” It was used to encourage people to drink orange juice during the day, not just at breakfast time.

One of the many blogs I follow is Just a car guy. He posts all kinds of car related humor and pictures. If its transportation related you are likely to find it posted there. I saw a post today I had to comment on…

“If a Jeep can’t get you there, you better parachute in”

I sent in this addendum…

“A Land Rover will be there to pick you up.”
says me, Okierover Eric

I’m just sayin’….its very likely.

Thanks for reading and Happy Rovering.
