My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?

Growing up our neighbor had one- he had a two-stall garage with a pole between the two doors- he parked the Nash behind the pole between the other cars.

I thought both cars were beautiful. What blew me away was the custom. We were walking into town and saw and heard the 327 pulling in. Looking at it the body lines are totally stock. Visually the only give away is the tires look a little bit larger from the side. Until you looked from behind. The whole rear view was all tire. Amazing workmanship to stuff that much motor, rearend and tire into that little package and keep the factory body lines.  :hail:


When I was a teenager there was a guy in town that had a Vega. It looked normal enough from the outside but he had stuffed a big block Chebby engine in it and basically drove from the back seat. The same thing, from the rear it was all tires but other than a bump in the hood for a clearance it just looked like a canary yellow Vega with Cragers from any other angle.

I spent a beer sighting in my ratty plastic Crosman BB rifle. The baby bunny litters have got to stop. As much as they are cute and fuzzy-wuzzy, the 6 litters so far this summer are destroying my lawn and edge plantings, and the murderous cat CONTINUES to bring adolescent bunnies INTO the house to murder and torture in a comfortable and confined space...

The doe must go. I rue the requirement, but that fuzzy little pest must die since she won't get into the humane trap I've provided and she obviously has the sex drive of, well... a rabbit.

Reworked the single bed in the ongoing van conversion.  It was about 4" too long to let the passenger seat adjust backwards.  I lopped off four inches in length and it's fine now.  Researching entertainment options for a small wall mount and LED tv for it.  A 19" LED tv goes about 3 pounds, so I don't think it'll overstress a steel wall mount.  Gonna go look at it at Best Buy tomorrow.


Need magnetic tv antenna, cable passthru, wall mount and tv to accomplish this.  About $100 all in.  Van is already wired for 110v shore power at campgrounds.

I think I have a small tv here, tom, though truthfully it'll cost just as much to ship it to you as it would be for you to just buy it; they've become such commodity items.

Best Buy had a 19" Insignia for a whopping $60.  Picking it up later today.  Thanks, though.  And it weighs a massive 3.5 pounds.  The mount won't even know it's there.   :lol:


https://www.bestbuy.com/site/insignia-19-class-led-720p-hdtv/6164904.p?skuId=6164904


Ordered this mount last night too.  Two wall mounts included, so it can be moved outside the van with the awning extended.

Trying this antenna, but don't expect too much.  As long as it picks up a few channels in civilization, I'd be happy.  TV also has HDMI/USB ports for my FireStick that can tether to my iPhone with unlimited data.  I can also hook up the laptop with about 100GB of movies on it.

Got some finishing to do on the bed bench today.  Paint, filler panels with carpeting and a couple doors, I think.  Need a piano hinge for the flip open section under the tri-fold bed pad.  It'll double as a tilt up section for tv watching (still need to steal a design for that online!). Walmart will supply the storage totes for a song.


I'd love to find a rear door mount ladder for accessing the roof storage rack.  Worst case, I break out the MIG and make one, but that's last resort.

It's cats I'm after. We have a few resident song birds in our yard that we feed year round. The neighbors cat like to sneak in over the fence once in awhile to try for a feathered lunch. I've nailed him a few times with my trusty Red Ryder but he seems to have a short memory. I'd use my .22 but I'm sure that wouldn't go over too well in the neighborhood, so I need to go for an eyeball shot and hit his brain or up my game to a .177 or something. That or a yummy bowl of antifreeze

Or he can stay the fuck out of my yard, leave my birds alone and live a happy kitty life. His choice I guess.

We have a few resident song birds in our yard that we feed year round.

We have free-range cats around the neighborhood (and 1 fox). I saw a smattering of feathers in the middle of our front yard a couple of days ago. Most of what we hear as "song birds" are gray doves.

I was disappointed in my performance at 100 yards with the new scope. After having time to process what was happening I chalked it up to a few issues.

1. This is still an MOA scope so I don't have to change my thinking patterns.
2. It's a "Christmas tree" reticle instead of a MilDot like I've used for many years. Remember the one that I got our to 800 yards in 50 yard increments using 1 shot/1 hit and just mildot hold overs?
3. I only brought 100 rounds and it was the cheap, throw-away type (since I was only needing to re-zero).

I did get on paper... then lost it again as the new turrets run opposite of the previous scope so there were several times I was bringing things into shape and, through habit, turned the turret the wrong way. DURP! It boils down to only 4 hours on the new scope vs hundreds on the previous one and the ones before that. As I started settling into things, I was out of ammo and it had been 95º/75%rh for some time so I packed it in. I'll be back...

It takes time and practice. Since SWMBO insists on a well manicured flower beds and a variety of shrubs the cats have plenty of cover to stalk any birds on the ground. All I get are snap shots when they break cover. Remarkably enough the ol' Red Ryder pretty accurate for the 15 or so yards I'm dealing with. Still cats are pretty quick so it can be a challenge. Lot's of neighbourhood friendly shooting fun though.

Hmph, missed that reply.


Naw, the whole thing would be too large in scale.  That said, I found one, but they are proud of it.  With shipping, its ~$170.

Rear doors latch solid in the door frame and that's the only time you're on it.  They've been making these things for ages and I've never heard any complaints about damage.

Fun with light bulbs.

Marriage is about finding ways to compromise.  My wife enjoys the brightest lights possible, and I enjoy not paying high electric bills.  Fortunately, there are LED bulbs.  I've been replacing the old hodge-podge of bulbs throughout our new home with LEDs.

The former owner was sensible in replacing bulbs only as they burned out. My issue probably speaks more to my having slight OCD rather than being critical of the former owner, but the new home had different light qualities from bulbs in the same fixture or in the basement flood lights.  This resulted from a single fixture or room having old-school incandescent, CFL and LED bulbs at the same time. Each seemed to emit light in different qualities--warmer and colder light, less lumens from one and more from another, etc. So I've been making the lights uniform for each fixture. This morning, I addressed the floods in the basement rec room.

Not exciting, but I feel happier that it's been done.

LEDs are awesome.  I swapped our house out last spring and the drop in the electric bill has paid for them a couple times over already.  Them three way LEDs are pricy, but they all do last one heck of a lot longer than incandescents.  We did the driveway security lighting first because we were going thru halogens every 90 days or less.  The original LEDs are in there over a year later. Convinced me on the value!

I did the same about a year and a half ago.  They certainly make a difference on the bill and I haven't replaced one yet...

But I’m still using the old fashioned incandescent bulbs in my shop. In winter I leave them on 24/7 and I get light and heat. Eighteen 100 watt bulbs keep the temperature above freezing. In fact even at minus 20C it hasn’t dipped below +5C.

I'm of the kind that wait for a failure before doing a replacement. BUT, if I do a swap from one kind to another and the colors are whacky, then I start moving older bulbs to one fixture as they need replacement and back-filling with the newest design I have on hand (which I now know to compare color temps when buying LEDs).

My dad used to go to the local Supertest gas station every Saturday and put in $2.00 worth of gas. It lasted him the whole week.
What this means is: 1- I’m old and 2- If dad came back and met me at the gas station and watched me pump in $146 worth of fuel that would last me half a day, he’d have a heart attack and immediately return to the grave.

We took delivery today of a fully farkled split-king bed with dual motorized adjusters, a massage function, and dual remote controls.  We're at that age where a good night's sleep is getting to be more important and more elusive at the same time.

Got banned from Facebook again.

Should we take this to imply that you are a Russian disinformation campaign troll?

Edit: probably should have added this  :)

Nah. Just an example of how bad Facebook's software and algorithms are.  ;)

Woke up at 5:30am so figured, screw it, and went ahead and got up. It let me get to the outdoor range as they opened and home before it rained though.

New scope needed re-zeroing. I'm out of the ammo it really likes and waiting for more to arrive. Tossed together bits and pieces from different makers, and "got close". Groups are good (not excellent though) and final POA/POI adjustments will be next week.

New carpet today in the master bedroom.  Got the trailer piled high with branches to take to the township mulcher tomorrow.

And of course the weather is perfect for riding this weekend.

I found out that using Zep mildew and stain remover and Zep tub and tile cleaner at the same time creates phosgene gas, or the home made equivalent.

It does a dandy job of cleaning the shower though. A fume and vapor proof dust mask is definitely a good idea, along with lots of ventilation.

As does Clorox and [something else]. Clorox and brake cleaner will create a very aggressive smoke cloud that not only can be poisonous but also can damage things in your garage. Play with it outside when there's a good breeze and stand upwind.

I rode the ‘cross bike 50km in a good ol’ cow-floatin’, gully-washer of a rain storm with gusty 40kph winds.
Haven’t done that in a long time.
I shall be damp until the week end...

Huh, I did the same on the way home from work yesterday, however the stylish and functional fairing, power windshield, heated grips and heated seat on my (so far) trusty K 13 kept me enveloped in a cocoon of warmth and more or less dry air.

I guess that's kind of a moto thing after all...
