the last good perk arrived yesterday
New car day at last. Nice bright blue. Sirius radio! A whole station devoted to classical Christmas carols for my 2 weeks of Christmas! Back-up beep-beep-beeps so I won't back into the bumper behind me! Digital auto temp control! BlueTooth sync for the BlackBerry that comes out of the car speakers. Now if I can just figure out to use the audio commands - my requests to DIAL! are met with an electronic 'Choose Help or Other Options', so there is a bit of a learning curve here. All just for me to amuse myself as I drive up and down and up and down 101 for at LEAST 5 hours a week. Thanks, John (manager of the US sales force). Let me finish the mileage bookkeeping and get back to dialing for dollars here.
