    It does, doesn't it? For years, I thought it was called "Best Defense," but then realized today it was called "Home Defense." Hubby joked that it should come with a handgun.

    Well, that's ONE way to stop a bug. :lol:

    Picked up my new C30 in Denver on Saturday and have been enjoying the hell out of it since.. Such a sweet ride. Still trying to figure out why my ipod won't sych in with the stereo, but that will come, I'm sure.

    There is a setting in the ICE you need to change. I dunno about the yank Volvo's but ours have specific settings. Generic MP3 or iPod. Unless you set it for iPod it'll just give you an error message. It'll recognize it as a portable unit, but it wont be able to access anything on it.

    EDIT: If its a iPod Touch, the software might be incompatible. iOS 4.2 is the newest that works. (2009 Volvo S80)

    ^^ Think you are right.. Been reading a bunch of complaints on the Apple Forum about this from Volvo owners. I have 4.2.1 on my Touch.. have been afraid to upgrade since it's an older (3 years old) 8GB model.

    Seems that 4.3 is working for a few owners.

    Boring, I know, but I have a bunch of my dad's cufflinks that I want to wear more.

    That's as good a reason as any!

    Not that one needs a good reason to buy new shirts, of course...

    I do. I bought two shirts today to replace two others that finally fell apart. I guess it was about time. I've had them since Regan was president.

    Bought this necklace for a friend of mine. On the back, it says, "A Friend May Well Be Reckoned The Masterpiece Of Nature"-Ralph Waldo Emerson
