Re: A Steal at $28K

Description sounds like they might have entirely replaced the suspension and drive train. The guys over at Doc's who rebuild old cars do that.

Re: * cricket * cricket *

Yeah, I've been jammed up with work (technically working right now, actually :? ) and weekend crap with the ancestral property. Haven't looked in for a few days.

Re: A Passing

My condolences, Pablo. Did not check the board for a few days and am just seeing the news here now.

Sometimes the waiting is worse. Wishing comfort and peace to you and your family.

Re: Short Break 2019-05-17

My grandmother spent ten years dying inside her head until her body finally gave out at age 102. I know what it's like. My mom didn't last that long, but I was missing her while she was still here. We thought her anorexia and dislike of formerly palatable foods was a symptom of dementia. She went f...

Re: Weird Noises 2019-05-10

The FIAT 128 was a decent little car. There was nothing Sovet cost-cutting couldn't ruin. Remember once seeing the Yugo described (approximately) as a base-model Fiat assembled from factory-second parts by unskilled workers in poor light. Click and Clack about stroked out laughing at an unlucky cal...

Re: Bad Jokes II

Good to see Jasper whatever thread. :D

Now, you want a bad joke?

Saw a thing just lately--with pictures--that dogs can ride the New York subways. If they fit in a bag!

Try convincing Jasper to ride the subway in a bag. :shock:

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

I knew opposite sides all equaled the same number. But I was thinking it was 6. That actually wouldn't work - what goes on the side opposite the 3? The numbers 1 to 6 total 21. There are three pairs of opposite sides on a cube, so if each pair is going to have the same total it must be 7. Quite log...

Jasper puts up with a lot. It's tough being a dog (as any dog will tell ya). But there are limits. :mrgreen:

Always good to see Jasper. Makes the week better. 8-)

Re: More Stuff

Well, they have so much information on it, at least it can be physically restored to an almost identical condition - and a whole lot faster than it was constructed initially. I haven't read any of the news reports yet - I'll wait a bit and see if they come up with how it happened. There was restora...

Does anyone else still scroll down on the main page to look for the big button link to the forums? It would seem that I'm still not used to its absence, as I scroll down almost every time.

According to the portable blackboard outside of a café and drinking establishment along the bus route I work every day, it takes 139 glasses of wine to fill a bath tub... I can't help but think that can't be right, as it seems to me a bath tub would take a lot more liquid than that. Unless you're t...

I actually thought someone had put a shell on one of those Spyder trikes when I saw it, but this thing had four solid wheels. The story is intriguing behind it, but I wonder if the guy asked too much for it, and just decided to keep it? Strewth that is the ugliest thing I've seen with a license pla...

Re: More Stuff

About the wire: Long time back, I heard a discussion about the value of magic wire on the local public radio station. Format then was mainly classical music. The station engineer said he used plain old zipcord, like for extension cords, for speaker wire. Low cost and plenty of conductance.

Re: Which Side Should You Tie Your Dirndl?

Ah, vowels... Some don't know how the Great Plains were populated by European immigrants. There were companies which sent recruiters to various places to advertise the opportunities, and they were tailored to match regions. That's why a lot of Swedes and Norwegians wound up in Minnesota, etc. Accor...
