32F/0C here, and the fog is just starting to burn off.
Just checked the back porch, most of the kitties are up and moving, but two of the black-and-white kittens are still snuggling on the chaise lounge.

Finally bought a car. A grey Toyota Yaris.
Lots of problems with the insurance though. I've tried 4 insurance companies and none would have me. But now I've contacted a special organisation that gives an insurance to people who won't get an insurance elsewhere. It's much more expensive than a normal insurance(2000 euro's a year)and it takes longer to get it but there's no other solution. *sigh*
Within a month I'll be driving my car, I hope...

2000 Euro on a Yaris - that makes my eyes water!
I'm so glad I have a cheap to insure Land Rover - "only" about 600 Euro, which isn't much more than I was paying on tinny Agila it replaced, but its twice the size, faster, heavier, carries far more people/junk/logs and is only slightly less economic.
Ah well the logic of car insurance - "risk based", well maybe but I doubt it...

It just makes me so mad. After only one accident (it was my first), you can't get any more insurance in the whole darn country. The logic in that is hard to find I think...

Grrrrrr

Here its almost impossible for young drivers to get insurance at sensible prices. A friend's daughter, a student teacher was asked to pay over 4000gbp on a Micra 1.0l worth less than 1000gbp. But she could be put on her dad's insurance (Jag XF, supercharged 5.2l) for something like an extra 150gbp. When quizzed about this the insurance company said something along the lines "You won't be letting her drive it on a Friday night so she won't be driving it with her friends in the car". True but she's driving it nearly every day to and from college with her friends in the car - she LOVES the Jag, apart from the amount of fuel it uses chugging around town - yes dad makes her fill it up!; meanwhile Dad chugs around in the Micra most of the time, until he needs to impress a client, then she has to use the bus...
