and this morning I read also Hummer, Saab and Saturn.

Those three don't have the history, legend, and the following like Pontiac. Or the way Oldsmobile did to a lesser extent.

I saw a Hummer H3 the other day, thinking GM could've competed against the Jeep mystique if they played the cards right. But of course, they didn't.

Went to Atlanta yesterday for grandaughters confirmation. Loved the ceremony - hated the traffic. No wonder companies are shying away from that city! Left at 10 p.m., and traffic was still heavy around I-285!

Facebook

Just wondered if it would be a "good thing" (a la Martha Stewart) for someone to have a POI Factory Fan Club on Facebook. It would be another source of awareness about this lovely place.

Meanwhile, the weather is beautiful and I'm feeling a Jimmy Buffett Moment coming on!!!

Have a great week, you all.

The truck stop (Flying J?) at Exit 4 I-465 (Indiana 37 & Thompson Rd.) usually has the lowest fuel prices in the area (-86.18820, 39.69254). Its been that way for years.

We notice that too, every time we cut off I-65 on the beltway heading to I-70 West. Its in kind of a truck/industrial area.

Watch Your Credit Cards

I just checked my Credit card today and found an bad billing against it. Went the the Credit Union and filed a dispute claim. They found 3 more charges for the same place pending. Had to change both my credid card and debit card. Now I can't spend any money until I get the new cards. Will have to go get some cash out. What is cash?. or write a check. Anyone remember how to write a check? Oh well got it fixed fast before worse things happened. Good Day and week to all.

I feel your pain. I just went through that last month with my American Express card. Somebody was making online purchases in the Netherlands with it.

AmEx took care of it. Didn't cost me anything. I would suggest opening a fraud alert with the 3 major credit bureaus. I did. You can request a 90 day fraud alert and it costs nothing. Within the last 30 days, you can extend it another 90 days if you want.

It's a real bundle of joy, (My 7th) but most of the rest are boys... I'll be bringing my nine year old grand-son and 22 year old grand-daughter to Florida for the IATSE convention at Disney World.. I should really get some spoiling in then... grin

New to POI Factory

So far, what I have seen and learned about POI's is exciting and will be a great addition to our summer travels. We like to find all the railroad - prototype running and dead, and model - locations as we travel mostly in the Western States. I will not be surprised to find a file of Railroad POI's and maybe I can add to them. I need a little learning first. I am a retired mining engineer so if there is need for locating some interesting mining locations, just ask.
