Work around the house.

Car stuff put on hold for a few weekends as I make a few improvements around the house. I actually got approval for all three of my projects, the Architectural Committee seemed almost eager to put me to work. Makes me wonder what else I could get them to approve, maybe a 40 foot tall wind turbine electric generator! I will be adding on to my driveway for a little more parking space, adding a patio and pergola, and finally a nice big shed to park the mower, yard tools and misc storage.

Bad luck comes in 3's

Its true, bad luck is a set of bastard triplets. My sons baseball team ended its season on a sour note. Brake booster died on the vette. Now the tranny is going. This happens once every quarter, and if this is the worst then I think I can survive.

edit: I have to update my transmission problem since I fixed it and it only cost me my pride, so still on the look out for bad luck event number 3.

Ah, Birthdays

I drive my Corvette to work everyday and just love the experience. The car has over 130000 miles on it and has its moments when I curse it. But, I keep fixing it and getting it back on the road. Lately I have been loving how the car is driving, mainly due to the replacement of the radiator. The car runs so much better when the temps are under control. I should have know the fun would not last. Today, on my birthday the brake booster died. Lucky for me I was just a couple blocks from my house. Guess this will be my first how-to post in the Corvette forum.

Earth Day Fallout

I'm no tree hugger but earth day had a profound effect on me that I didn't quite expect. Saving the environment is great and all but maybe my real motivation is to just save money and stick it to the oil man. Whatever the real reason, I have done enough research to convince myself that I could build a simple electric car for under $10,000. This is much less than many of the companies that are poised to sell electric cars to the public in the US. Some are listed below with a link to a new section in the forums for the upcoming electric car disaster/project.

Rush Concert

Had a great time at the Rush concert last night. I never get tired of their shows. Always high quality and always plenty of music. I enjoyed this concert a little better than the last one. I think I am a little more familiar with the new album so I was able to connect to them this time. Anyway, if you get the song reference that this web page is named after then you can understand how influential Rush can be. I took a few snapshots with my camera phone.
