Bad News and even more crappy news,

Just when you get used to a product and really love it to the obsession stage, corporate bigots pull it from the shelves. Maybe its time for Coke and Pepsi just sell Coke and Pepsi, and no longer sell side drinks, like Mountain Dew, or my precious Dewshine . Heard the news from Pepsi direct, they have pulled it for good. Now this may not be a big thing, but consider this, at the SuperBowl this year when Lady GooGoo, was doing her concert during half time, did you notice in her hand, a bottle of yes you got it, Dewshine. With that kind of gesture that Pepsi, would have woke up there. Considering the bad pr they got over some ill placed TV ads. But nope no more Dewshine. However all is not lost, if more people called Pepsi at 1-800-433-2652 and said they wanted the product back, it'd be back. This is not the first time that I've experienced this. Back in 2004/2005 I was hooked on Mello Yello. A Coke product. All of a sudden no Mello Yello. However one store owned by a former Utah area Coke executive, got my Mello Yello, over in Morgan Utah. I would drive the equal distance of 80 miles, (40 each way) to get my Mello Yello. Maybe that seems extreme but when I want something I will go the distance to get it. Pepsi says Dewshine wasn't selling very well. Duh? Was there ever any kind of ad or promotion push on the sweet beverage? Those long necked glass bottles with that pure necture, was good and not gassy. It didn't taste like anything else. 
HazzardAyre Radio and the Knytes-of-Dixie(aka Iron Knytes Association) are rallying to the cause of bringing this great product back to the shelves. Join with us and help to bring back and preserve Dewshine.
Call Pepsi's corporate offices at 1800-433-2652 tell them you want Dewshine back.
Okay then, the slogan of NAPA know how ought to be NAPA Auto Parts don't know nothing, no how no way. Went to our local NAPA Auto Parts store today for a very inexpensive battery charger, There was one alright, at $138.00 and it wasn't very fancy at all. Drove up the street to Orieley's and guess what? $50.00 and I was on my way, hooked up to the Mini wolf, and getting the job done. Went over to Perkin's Auto shop here, with Nate not being able to get at it, and all so in Mini Wolf goes in there to get the oil leak fixed,(hopefully this time) So I can get at this move thing. 
But hey this is not the only way today my day was messed up.
Went in early this morning as I reported on Wolf With a Blog, to Walmart to buy a battery for LexiBelle. Found the battery, bought it, went out removed and replaced, then trucked into town with the old core, only to find I had to wait damn near a half hour to get waited on. This was a simple core return and a whopping $12.00 . None of the old farts in there trying to be technicians knew how to get me a core return refund, they had to call an assistant manager in to the service desk in Tires& Batteries, and even he had to call a supervisor to take care of me, when I explained that me being retained there for a half hour was costing me business, I told them they could pay me $40.00 or a half hour of my time of $80.00 a tow. The little fart knocker, just brushed me off, but watch who I don't go, to get something simple done. None of those old farts are ever going to get under the hood of anything I own. 
Just complete stupid. Must be that nuclear testing in Nevada years ago, must have effected the gene pool here.
Any mile, call Pepsi and lets at least save Dewshine.
