Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

This blog post contains gratuitous photos of pure filth


(Obviously, the replacement filter is on the right)

I finally got around to changing the cabin air filter in my 10-year-old Chevy Cobalt.  Actually, until recently I did not know that there was a filter anywhere in there; over the years, most all of the maintenance of the car was done by a dealer and never once was there a mention of a cabin air filter.  Live and learn.  I was researching something unrelated when I ran across the video for changing the filter.

We bought the car brand new in 2005 and I figured we would put around 10-years on it before we started shopping for a new one. Since I reckoned that we only had a couple of more years left on this car at the most, initially I was going to just remove the filter rather than replace it.  Once I saw how much crud it had filtered out over the years, I decided that replacing the filter was likely worth the small amount of money and bother.

2007 Cobalt here. Mine didn't look much better when I replaced it after 7 years. I'm driving the dang thing until it dies, which may be sooner than later with all the recall repairs I've had to have done....
