  2. As a kid in the mid sixties, we had a local corner store owner named Eggie. Eggie was in his 60s and could be quite the hothead. A tall skinny old cus a balding head, who would jump into anyone in a heartbeat. He also owned several triple deckers on a large steep hill. One day Eggie decides to take the family tobogganing. He gets up front and has the family pile in behind him and off they go on the hill behind some of his rentals. Well Old Eggie never pulled his legs in and they were hurtling down the steep hill without a proper path. Toward the end at te
  3. Man 3 weeks without any fucked up incidents. Maybe there is something to the thought that it is the hot summer sun that boils their brains. Or the Florida Tourism Council has put the kibosh on any negative articles until after the Superbowl

  6. remember Cycle World magazine did a full write up on the CBX when it first was introduced. Honda asked one of the new engineers on the project to come up with an exhaust that conveyed the power and speed of their new steed. So he come up with a perfect acoustic copy of the McDonnell Douglas F4 Phantom at full gallop. Bosses said they understood, but try again son. Next time was the more traditional exhaust. The bike itself never was the top of the hill due to the width. But I believe it was the first motorcycle to use a jackshaft so they could put th
  7. back in their day, buddy had one of those FJs. What a great ride and still had serious speed. Their nick name said it all: Velvet Sledgehammer..

  11. My John Deere Lawn tractor has CVT. Does the job cutting grass and dragging the Cyclone Rake about. No way for the cars. Want to be able to shift into manual mode and slam gears while dancing at red line. These small motors with turbos are not half bad with the correct slush box. Looks like Honda is phasing out autos for CVTs in the Accords For me CVTs remove the soul of an automobile.. If that soul means nothing, I guess they are fine for you.

  16. been developing software for over 40 years including for Uncle Sam. I understand the rationale for IBNS as the Navy tries to do more with less headcount. But there is an old IT saying "Build a foolproof system and only a fool will use it" That big red button is a nice idea but the implementation sucked as it never displayed what it just changed. If it had told them where a command had been moved to (main, backup or engine room stations) it would allow people at each station to know who had control of what. In fact those monitors should be showing where command is currently assi

  20. On Saturday our family did our annual trek to Arlington National Cemetery for Wreaths Across America. Rain was not as bad as last year, but it would not stop us anyways. 400,000 graves in 1 day by a group of strangers thanking those who gave everything. 1st shot is section 69 directly across from the Pentagon. 2nd shot is the line as we were leaving. You can see the Pentagon in the background. If you missed, they will need crews to remove them next month. Check https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/ in a couple days for details
