  1. Engineers may come up with overtly elaborate solutions, but to really screw things up it takes the beancounters.
  2. And the headlight high/low beam switch is to the left of the clutch pedal.

    My tomb

    Funerals and burials are for the living. When I'm gone it doesn't matter to me what happens to my body. My family may feel otherwise so they can do whatever makes them content. I just hope it doesn't involve the toilet.

    best mag for sailing binos

    The binoculars I got for my wife were the Nikon 7x50 OceanPro - 22.7mm eye relief, field of view of 378 feet, waterproof, and has a center focus. The center focus is nice because she uses them for looking at boats, bouys, birds, and stargazing. So far they have worked well......

    My season just ended, and...

    We were on our way home from an overnight yesterday, leaving Eastern Bay and heading for the Rhode River. The clouds were starting to give way to blue sky. In the early afternoon, when we were around halfway across the Chesapeake a dense fog rolled in - the visibility dropped to around 100 feet or so. Looking up you could still see the blue sky through the fog. Twenty or so minutes later it began to clear.

    best mag for sailing binos

    I bought my wife new binoculars for her birthday - she loves to use them when we are out sailing - looking at wildlife, other boats, and the next bouy. The binoculars can float - if you use the supplied strap that looks like the offspring of a bino strap and a life vest. One look at it and my wife grabbed the strap off of her old binoculars.
  9. Both of my cars are manuals. Taught my kids how to drive stick, and my daughter taught her fiance how to drive stick - both of their cars are manuals.

    Many highways were designed long ago for cars with drum brakes and bias tires.

    Tell me about the Mason 43

    According to Sailboatdata, the waterline length is 31.75 for the 44, and 31.25 for the 43. (The 44 weighs 2400 lbs more than the 43).

    NFL 2020

    At least the Broncos got 3 good seasons out of Peyton before his arm went bad. With Denver, Peyton was the 2012 comeback player of the year, 4 times the AFC offensive player of the month, NFL MVP (2013), NFL offensive player of the year (2013), best NFL player ESPY award (2014), Pro Bowl 2012-1014, first team All-Pro (2012-2013), AFC offensive player of the year (2012-2013), NFL most passing yards in a season (5,477) which he did in 2013..... The list goes on and on, but Manning was playing at an elite level for the first 3 seasons in Denver.

    Daysailer for old people

    When I hear "old people sailing", I think about the owner of a boat near me. He's 88 years old and sometimes singlehands his 38 foot boat. The only change he has made to the boat for his age is an electric halyard winch. I'll admit he's an inspiration to me.
