    I'm not liking that!

    Never throw out fasteners

    I hear you on that!
    Here in NZ we have an abundance of Japanese/Chinese/European cars/tools/ machinery all of which use metric threads on their fasteners.
    Our older machines are from America, Australia, and England who primarily used Imperial threads. And now the Imperial threaded nuts/bolts etcetera are becoming harder to obtain.
    So for some time now (like 30 years,) I've kept any Imperial threaded bolt/nut/fastener of any description in bottles, or if they're larger: ice cream containers.

    My mates know this, and quite often now I get someone turning up "Have you got a 5/8" UNF machine screw about 4" long?"
    Or: "A 1/4" whitworth about 1" long?"

    And most times I do.

    Kinda similar with me but mine are all IH marked ( International Harvester ) or their company WP, (West Pullman) for the tractors I've restored.. or friends doing restorations. It used to be an obsession.. what can I say?!? LOL

    i recently bought a vehicle .. a 08 suzuki xl 7 .. whatever that is .. i couldnt refuse the price even with it damaged on the passenger side .. i can beat that out some day or just drive it .. i`m still looking for a good car .. i am not buying a new one and the ones that are less than 10 years old already have 150 thousand miles on them .. i may go look at a 10 corolla today with a 99 grand on it ,, just broke in good ,, mine had 215 grand when it was totaled and i had no intention of getting rid of it ,, the corolla i want to look at was a light wreck in the front that has been fixed but the seller is acting all wierd on me .. the price is right though .. anyway if some of you need to fix clouded headlight covers and dont want it hired out this stuff did a really good job for me .. these covers were so bad i took a razor blade to them initially to scrape off the worst layer . the kit is rinky dink but it will do a decent job .. probably will do better than i did if you take a bit more time .. the 1500 grit and the polish is what really made the difference ,

    While on the west coast we went to South Moon Bay recently with a really good friend to spread some of Denise‘s ashes on the West Coast and let Suzie step foot in the ocean for the first time. Yes we had a great time together.….joe

    i ride my bicycle about 20 or so miles a week .. most times just cruising along at 5 or 10 mph or so .. on one road i travel there is one of those signs that give your speed .. the first time i tried i hit 20 mph .. it caught me off guard a bit so i was`nt at full speed and my old bike was an 18 speed .. my new bike has 21 speeds .. i tried again a few days ago and hit 22 mph with a little left in the tank i think plus i had already ridden about 6 miles .. anyway where i`m going is about 55 years ago when i was able to collect 6 returnable soda bottles i would ride to the store on my bike and trade them for a cold double cola ..10 cents plus deposit bottle .. on my route i had to ride past Dog Zilla .. a huge black German shepard .. i see now that they can run 30 mph .. i dint know that then but he never caught me so i must have been doing 31 on my little one speed 20 incher .. my 13 year old legs must have been a blur compared to my now 67 year old hams .. i`m going to try again and see if i can hit at least 25 .. yet even at that speed Usain Bolt could still run past me .. that man could put them up a down ,, he can run 27 mph ..i have tried taking a picture at speed but it`s too dangerous peddling like a mad man trying to hold the handle bar with one hand ,, trying to look through a one inch viewing screen .. i may have someone take a shot if i can hit 25 ..

    Maybe get one of the EB's (Electric Bikes) to supplement your pedal power? Seems to be the going thing these days??

    i was doing my duties at the big box hardware store ( Lowes) and a fellow comes up to me and says " dint you used to have a red white and blue V8 pinto ? .. i said " i still have one . " .. he said he meant 30 years ago .. turns out he was the guy who bought my first pro street pinto back in 91 ..he hurt his back a year later and his wife divorced him and he had to sell it .. i had heard he murdered her and was in prison .. anyway he still knows and sees the fellow he sold it to and will ask about it the next time they meet .. i`m not sure i want it back or anything but if it still exists i would like a picture of it ..

    at least once a week i hear a car in the neighborhood across the woods cranking up and doing a few burnouts .. he will travel down the road a bit and do a full power blast then head back home .. i was riding my bike over there recently and saw some impressive burnout marks about a hundred yards long and as i got closer i saw a sign ,, i guess there is a " Karen" in every neighborhood ..this is his neighbor ,, HA ! ,,

    Maybe he's a Dad and he is worried about his kids..??..?? If he's doing these burnouts a lot, I'd be pissed off too.
    And putting out that sign is at least a polite way of saying knock it off! imho

    Visiting Idaho Falls and this is one of the many things I’ve seen While visiting. They also have a great park along the river where they have a water fall right on the river and a shallow water turbine power plant… joe
