Asher & Miriam sing along

Yeah, it’s Who Better Than Me by Phil Collins with the Turk and Tarzan names changed but it covers just about any two closely aged siblings IMHO:

Miriam
You’re one of a kind, I can’t explain it.
You’re kind of cool, in a wonderful way.
Though you’re weird, you can make it.
And who better than me to teach you.
Who better then me to set you on your way. (Mhm)

This could take some hangin’ in there
Though with persuasion I can take you on up
Make you grow up, beside the others
And who better than me to lead you
Who better than me to take you all the way (Hey hey hey yeah)

Asher & Miriam
Struggling along for years and years

Miriam
Until I came along for you
Now its all comin’ together

Asher & Miriam
And together will see this through
You for me and me for you


Asher
I can learn, I can listen
I know there’s something
Deep inside but
I need assistance to go the distance

Miriam
And who better than me

Asher
To teach me

Miriam
Who better than me

Asher
To tell me all you know

Miriam

Who better than me

Asher
You reach me

Miriam
Who better than me

Asher & Miriam
To show them all we know!

My wife bought a new Sony MEX-BT2700 car radio for my Saturn 2000 SL2 car but it took me 2 1/2 hours to install the thing

When my bought the Sony MEXBT2700 CD Receiver with Bluetooth Hands-Free with Integrated Microphone (Black), I was thrilled. It seems to be a nice little radio with bluetooth and all the whiz bang that I needed.

We purchased the wiring adapter and the harness so that it fits well and looks nice in my Saturn 2000 SL2 sedan for an extra $44. Not bad. The problem was that while the colored wiring diagram provided by the adapter was correct, it had me put the power wire from the ignition in the wrong pin slot as the casing was reversed! Argh! It needed to go into pin 6 but it was on the wrong side. I figured it out after taking a good look at the plug on the old stock radio.

No, I couldn’t find my multimeter which is in a box somewhere in the house. head*desk

Once I moved the wire to the correct pin hole, the radio came alive.

Lesson learned when installing a car radio: make sure you have your multimeter (or some other way of determining if the power pin is hot).
