What is large, Java Black naturally aspirated and weighed 5,512 lbs ….

it’s actually my 2007 Range Rover sport

my sweet “Jennifer Tilley” is sitting idly by as it is awaiting a new set of key transmitters

Short scenario (mind you the vehicle was brought into the dealership because Progressive chose to schedule my insurance adjuster appointment at that dealership because of Covid they were not doing house visits our location visit Surf or I had to meet at an assigned location),

I took my 2007 LR Sport HSE, into a dealership to have the insurance adjuster do a adjustment on a little fender bender or in this case the active suspension, Driver side rear wheel and rear lower fender area had damage along with rear bumper. Claims adjuster would only count for the real one shock a bumper and a repainting of the driver side rear lower fender panel.

Adjuster stated that they could not include any of this suspension items because the service department warranted that my vehicle needed these items due to the age of the vehicle not due to the accident.

Dealership quoted me $12,000 for the suspension and that it would be out of my own pocket

I stayed up until the accident my vehicle is working just fine went to go pick up a pizza and an Uber driver backed into my vehicle while it was parked deeming my vehicle stuck in the low access mode

Due to the suspension being stuck in Acess mode I had it towed into the dealership for this process and then towed home.

When the dealership was done with the vehicle they brought it up to the portico vehicle was running I took the vehicle parked it up front left it running called the tow truck company, I pulled a vehicle around to the side where the tow truck company could then load the vehicle.

The Tow truck operator place the vehicle neutral placed it up on the flatbed. Tow truck driver turn the vehicle off. Flatbed truck arrived at my driveway, check operator place vehicle in neutral rolled off my vehicle into my carport. A bit off centered but hey what it was back home safe.

When I retrieve the keys out of my vehicle I noticed that the fob is in two pieces and the reason why it was together was because it was hooked on the key ring. Attractive circuit board was not in the (KFT), key Fob transmitter; as to the reason why the driver was unable to turn on the vehicle and parked straightaway in my driveway.

Contacted dealership they had no idea what to place did not own up to the fact that the key fob was taken apart by one of their employees. After several visits several go rounds in several tow truck drop offs to their dealership and back four to be exact which means eight tow truck trips in total I am still in the same position of not having a set of keys for this vehicle is basically a giant paperweight at this point.

Does shorten the go around on this I’ve gone through all kinds of different message to figure out how in the world I’m gonna get a set of keys for this vehicle the most obvious of course was going through the dealership dealership would not get me a set of fobs finally when they did they gave me a used fob that had been assigned to another VIN number.

The GM of the store and unknowing how to spell his last name I will just call him by his first name Bruce; he stated that the fob was just fine, it had not been synced to any-one vehicle; at this point that I was to remove the existing blade from the fob, which belong to the other vehicle.

Which leads me to this post. Needless to say the fob did not sync with my vehicle causing my vehicle to go in total lockdown and now I am unable to have a set of keys for my vehicle now the dealership says I need a new CJB along with two new fobs and I am responsible for paying for this really should I have to pay for this mistake?

I stated to the general manager that this mistake was on them.

I live in Sarasota Florida

I realize there are other Land Rover dealerships that I may be able to deal with but I also know that dealerships tend to stick together when it comes to service and not wanting to work on somebody else’s mess up any input please

I saw you today

I saw you today

I saw you today
It took me a monument
to realize it was you

Fresh as
If it was my first hello
Smooth
As water on a slip’n slide

I was back there
The days of
Simplicity and quiet gazes

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I’m enamored
by your ability to hold me
Without ever reaching out

Yet;
Saddened by your ability
to set fire to a room
You never intended
To be in

You never owned your
Dysfunction,
you collected glitter
and wore it as
your charmed life,
rolled though me
Like a hurricane party
on nitro

You know
One day
You would be
Standing
In the place, that space
Only you would fill
Only you could fill

That day came
It was here
Before us
Playing out
Like it did
In my mind

No disappointment
No resentment
Oddly
It was joy

I saw you today,

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I saw you, today.

Situational empathy

How do say I understand?,

I lived a privilege life

Born of an unknown woman

Raised Another, of Jewish Faith

and a passive Protestant  father

Given much

Yet the feeling of emptiness

and loss is prevalent

and knowing that lived

on borrowed time,

Left me with survivors guilt

and sarcasm scribbled in bits n bytes

viewed by thirty thousand minds

Whose thoughts were in-kind

Nothing vague left

between the lines

The words in times

They will be found

And once read

Will open the mind

To know

I as well as you

Have lived a life

Of similarity

Just in different Hues

Varied expectations

Dreams short of breathe

Overwhelming Reality

Ever looming questions

Of why, and if

Purpose and contentment

Will ever agree enough

To leave me at peace

With

Not being more

Proactive toward

The injustice

All because

It’s hard for

You to think

I can not understand

As I am not you

I am me

Endlessly

mis-understood

Most of all

Human

How do say I understand

I lived a privilege life

Born of an unknown mother

Raised by a Jewish Mother

Abandoned by a passive-emotion void father

Replace by excess

Yet the feeling of emptiness

and loss prevalent

and knowing that

living on borrowed time,

Left me with survivors guilt

and sarcasm scribbled in bits n bytes

viewed by thirty thousand minds

Whose thoughts were in-kind

Nothing vague left

between the lines

The words in times

They will be found

And once read

Will open the mind

To know

I as well as you

Have lived a life

Of similarity

Just in different Hues

Varied expectations

Dreams short of breathe

Overwhelming Reality

Ever looming questions

Of why, and if

Purpose and contentment

Will ever agree enough

To leave me at peace

With

Not being more

Proactive toward

The injustice

All because

It’s hard for

You to think

I can not understand

As I am not you

I am me

Endlessly

mis-understood

Most of all

Human

The Lost, The Found

 

Can’t sleep
Gotten in too deep
Can’t stop
music got me flying
Won’t stop
Its bigger than the both of us
Middle of four
And I just can’t sleep
Gotten in too deep
Your love has me flying
Middle of the floor
Up against the wall
Heading for the fall
Just can’t sleep
Can’t sleep
Gotten in too deep
Can’t stop
music got me flying
Won’t stop
Its bigger than the both of us
Middle of four
And I just can’t sleep
Gotten in too deep
Your love has me flying

intrinsic matter (work in progress )

“You, don’t matter”

There are many phrases that can be presented to you daily; there is only one phrase that will hit you, as if a mountain fell upon you

Many days can go by without consequences
Many interactions have been put to science, but none have a finite view.

There are times when you take the two definition and conscience,  put them together and come up with something that is called a relationship

This is not the case

This is a summary of something that was greater than the number of two

but somehow it came down only to the number one

If only the phrase didn’t exist
if only the phrase never came to light
the idea that someone with a single thought, gave it life…

The ideas something did not matter

the idea that someone did not matter

I  could not wrap my head around

The void of someone

So here I sit wondering why
So here I sit wondering how

Wondering how this happen
the idea of a that phase,  having life.

astounding
so immense
so big
so intense
That the phase could take over
and become of
That of which I it could not define

The segment of time
That if left alone could have become more than just a speck of time

A spark delightful remedies

someone who normally would go through
Their entirety everything not only mattered
But would actually feel affected, motivated and changed

Oh just a phrase in time to move that it would be put to a rhyme…

Standing on Capitol hill, Wearing our hearts on our sleeves, {Is capitol hill over using the wrong L word}

The word LOVE is overused. A proactive stance is needed. To think I was one-week-end away from being in the right spot at the wrong time is life stopping.
We need to use more of the other L words…. Legislation and Laws. push for Officers of the court to officiate and enforce both the existing laws and draft up new laws that will include consequences to merchants of 21st century marketplace.
I realize we cannot become a policed state, but we sure can become a Pro-active. We learn daily that being REACTIVE is “199 deaths too late” (from 1966 to present day mass-incidents.
Right let’s not given to fear.
I ask that we STOP fueling the fires filled with empty promises. Let’s put out the embers of those empty words, find the gather the good left from the dust and ashes of these massacres, and place them in a BILL, and send it to capitol hill.
Ask for mandatory physicals, that are document via a physician’s affidavit.
A Yearly renewal on gun licensing.
Require gun insurance. just like our DMV registration process (using state of florida as my example) No insurance, Means No driver’s license, No Renewal.

Once the paperwork trail is deviated, the state will issue a bench warrant for violators.
Violation would warrant, A new physician’s affidavit. along with a In-Home visit.
P.S. it’s harder to adopted a Kitten from the SPCA than it is to buy an assault rifle.

Another day I did not use algebra

….because,

some words, are harmful.
some words, are peaceful
some words, are unheard

these word must be read.

somedays are longer that others. the length of time is relative only to the minds in ability the release the unattainable love we seek.

we are awashed in stories,

tell us words that seek

….approval, not by a long shot.

somewhere in our human existence we equate approval with love.

the very definition of the word only leaves a yes or no outcome. no algebra needed.

just a clear bright sky to be there when the soul decides to offer up the ever elusive reasons for why it held out so long.

the x equals A. the y equals B and the total sums equals u

I get it I was there Even when I wasn’t I move in out of a room like a Chameleon Changing ever slightly To fit In Days end when the will noise my varied shades of Blue I’d wish my life away Silent miles Endless words The rhythm Of my life Forms shapes Of photos I recognizes As if I were A spectator Twenty-four hours Of breathing in and breathing out Brings me 24 years away from The hour That Defined Whether Or not Membership Was worth My last breathe Moving forward Making choices Clearly Less defined, yet more Inclined To accept Being blue Was better Than being blue

Nothing for granted

We
Always
Assume

We’re
Going
To
Wake
Up

….

Cover all unknown facts
Only one actually
Too much love for you, to not say it !
