The oil pressure gauge on the van is below zero, but it's not making noise or smells so it's probably the gauge -- the van is 20 years old. I'm taking it up to the shop tomorrow.

I had massive cramps in my legs and feet last night from all the sitting and driving and had to take more flexeril which meant I slept through the cleaning lady working in the bedroom and bathrooms. When she started vacuuming out here, I woke up. I told the cats on top of the duvet over me that we were getting up and Giorgio got right up and off. Spirit just gave me that content blink. I said "Spirit, don't look at me like that, we're getting up!" and she got an alarmed look and when I started to sit the recliner up, went dashing off.

The WashPost has Appreciations for famous people who die and sometimes, like yesterday, they have two and stack them. I do wonder that Barbaro was at the top with a picture, and priest and former Congressman Robert Drinan without picture was at the bottom.

If it's NOT the guage, your van is doing something miraculous!

And the really strange thing is that after the cleaning lady left, I went to run some errands and the gauge was fine! I checked up at the shop and they agreed not to come in and just to watch it. I did have that long drive yesterday, and at one point I was 80mph (on I-95, I would have been rear-ended if I hadn't) but I don't know why that would affect the oil gauge.

On the way back yesterday evening, I finally checked the tyre pressure on the front wheels. The front driver tyre was 16 as opposed to 33. ooops. Thought it had looked a bit soft....
