    Five rules for men to follow for a happy life.


    1. It's important tohave a woman who helps at home, cooks from time to time, cleans up and has a job.

    2.It's important to have a woman who can make you laugh.

    3. It's important to have a woman who you can trust and who doesn't lie to you.

    4. It's important to have a woman who is good in bed and who likes to be with you.

    5. It's very, very important that these four women do not know each other.



    Sincerely,


    Tiger Woods

    Actually they should be referred to as "winter" tires cause they are manufactured with a softer rubber gripping the road better at temperatures below freezing, temperatures higher than freezing cause more wear on the tires...that is the only benefit to these tires.

    I haven't put winter (snow) tires on my vehicles since 1974 and have never had any problems in comparison to vehicles equipped with winter tires...

    It is mostly driving habits......I remember last year driving to Peterborough watching all the 4X4s passing me on the snow covered road....I passed them later when they were in the ditch..

    Summer tires get hard at 10 degrees celsius while all season stay flexible to -10 and winter stay flexible to -30. I live in Toronto and I don't believe it is the centre of the universe. I do travel outside the GTA so winter tires are warranted. I've been using winter tires since after my first winter driving a front wheel drive car in 1987. Ever been stuck behind a car without winters on on a small grade with its wheels spinning because of lack of grip. To say it only snows 3 or 4 days a year in Toronto where winter tires are needed sounds like selective memory or they just moved here within the last 2 years. You cannot compare the superior traction of winter tires with allseasons. At least half a dozen times a year I've had to take evasive action to avoid someone sliding into my lane or through oa stop light (sign). I left Toronto in the middle of a snow storm (this winter) to go to Detroit, where it was dry as a bone an 6 degrees( C ) and never had any problems ( they didn't melt or even get warm ). Like auto insurance those with a clean record have to pay for those slipping and sliding, and ending up in the ditch ( not always that drivers fault ) because of driving habits. So make it mandatory.

    TNS&F said it already, but that's actually not too bad for UK hotels. It is unbelievable what they are willing to pay for stuff over there.

    Very well said! We mandate seatbelts because they are proven to save lives, as are winter tires, so what would justify not mandating it?

    I fell for the all season sales pitch many years ago and we used them for a long time until the day that a guy slid out in front of me at a stop sign and I T-boned him on the passenger side, in spite of my best efforts to stop. We were both on all seasons and the officer who came to the scene said that while he was at fault (and got the ticket for failing to stop), my tires had also caused the accident because winter tires would have allowed me to stop.

    And the common belief that winter tires pulling down your gas mileage is false. We've run winter tires on both of our vehicles for 5 years now (since my accident). We track our fuel consumption regularly. The difference we see in our average mileage numbers between winter and summer is exactly the same as the difference we would see when we used the same tires all year round. That difference is caused by the fact that colder air is more dense and your car needs to burn more fuel to overcome the friction of air resistance. That said, easing up on the acceleration will easily cover that mileage increase.

    And with that, your physics lesson for the day is complete, Q-bees!

    Sorry! - - Didn't mean to make you all hot under the collar.
    I have also had to take evasive action against others several times every winter.
    And I agree it is bad driving habits which cause the accidents.
    But I've been in Toronto and environs for 34 years. Driving for a living for 20 plus of them, never been in an ice or snow related accident and I'm just saying I haven't needed them.

    Hi Karmac. I just wanted to give you my 2 cents on the problem you're having with your childs classmate. If I were in your shoes, I wouldn't wait too long to notify the teacher, principal and his parents. I know that coming from an 8 yr old, death threats mean very little. But by you making sure everyone is alert to the problem, whatever negitive actions are made against your child by the pesky 8 yr old, will be observed and hopefully dealt with before anything becomes to serious.

    A few years ago someone made repeated death threats against me. I notified the police and told them I didn,t want any charges laid. Then, a little while later, that someone and I 'RESOLVED' our dilemma. Had I not notified the authorities of my problem I would have undoubtedly been charged with assualt at the very least.

    I guess what I'm trying to say, is an ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure. (Or however that saying goes.)
