    A quick word about high fructose corn syrup. It's supposition of evil is a convoluted corruption of reality. I had a modest portion with my breakfast this morning. It's an American innovation that keeps countless millions fat and happy. Including me.😁

    Hey Early, didja have pancakes or waffles? Bacon or sausage? Inquiring minds are inquiring! :smiley:  Sugar is sugar in effect no matter where it comes from. Sure makes sweets sweet, though!

    So I got two new gas cans. For mine and everyone elses safety and inconvenience, these new ones are made so you can't get any fuel into or out of them. 

    I feel so secure now, I could just deficate a concrete brick with extra aggregate.😒

    Those new 'government engineer designed and approved' gas cans are worthless. However, you can replace that worthless nozzle with a NEW 'old style nozzle. Most auto parts stores around here sell them. I don't know about anywhere else.

    I'll have to check that out.
    I modified them somewhat already. Amazing I've made it 40 years without barbecuing myself with the old style ones.

    NN, that's because the orange peels are fed to dairy cows. Makes the milk taste funny, though. Not funny, Ha Ha, but funny, Hmmm :#

    I think so. Put enough high fructose corn syrup in the jar and even tree bark could get tastey.

    I took the spout of one of them goooberment gas cans off and tried to drill the plastic out to make one hole. Didn't work. Destroyed the whole spout.

    I'll live with the spout. No way was I going to wrestle that cap lock at a crowded city gas station. Those are gone.

    Now if them dam blister packs my pills used to come in stay gone, I think I can carry on. 😋

    This oh-so-RARE sewing machine can be yours for the bargain price of ONLY $500! Granted, its a fine example, but about 20X overpriced!

    That one looks like a simple enough one that I could even use zorba .
  • zorbazorba Senior Member Posts: 19,605 Senior Member
    They're all simple enough to use from the machine operation standpoint - but like everything else, its all in the prep work.

    That reminds me of a dance vest I made one time. A *very* talented dance sister cut out the pieces for it, and I sewed them together. It was just "off", and I didn't know why...
    So I took it to class with me to show it to our eldest, "Nonah", who was about 83 at the time and an accomplished seamstress. She looked at it for a bit, and hummed to herself, before saying "Ok, you need to rip out this seam and... Oh, wait. first you need to take this one out and then... Well, there's this one here too - oh Hell, I'll deal with it, easier for us both!" and she stuffs it into her dance bag.
    Ok, well then!
    Nonah was a VERY proper Brit (lived through the Blitz), so I was a bit amazed when I got a phone call from her the next day (she *never* called anyone!). She inquired if my sewing machine had a stitch length regulator lever. When I answered in the affirmative, she suggested that next time I use the damn thing because she had been up until 2AM picking the little tiny stitches out of this $^*%^&*% vest!
    In any event, it came back to me the next week all fixed. I don't know what I did wrong nor what she did to fix it. I added a lining to it, and have been dancing in it ever since.
    Speaking of Nonah and the Blitz - it hit the news a couple of years ago that there was a single, very LOUD crack of thunder over Santa Cruz (where she lived) the previous nite. We never got thunder/lightening in that part of California - maybe one storm every 5 years or so. Anyway, Nonah told us that it sounded like it went off right above her house, and her Blitz training took over and she dove under the bed before she knew what she was even doing!

    Das68, the Alfred Hitchcock show was one of my favorite shows back in the 60's. Always some weird and macabre stuff there. Never understood the movie "The Birds" though. I saw nothing in that  movie that a 12 gauge and a flat of 12 ga. shotshells with #6 shot couldn't have handled. Being 10 at the time I said as much, and my Dad thought it was funny, and told it to all his hunting buddies. Oh, well, at least I was an entertaining little feller!

    I have one of those from a few years back, I think it works fine for small engines.

    Probably be a problem  with a funnel, so, putting gas  in a car/pickup that requires an inserted 
    pump spout or the funnel supplied with the car might be a problem.

    Most of those new cans really suck . I like the old cans that you can just dump in & get along with what you are doing . The excuse for the new crappy designs is that is to make it safer for us to use . I wish they would make things better not safer for idiots to use .

    Oh boy...

    My dance teacher wants ME to teach finger cymbals to the class...

    Yea, I can play the darn things, pretty well if I say so myself. But there are better players out there and I've never taught them before! My teacher seems to think that if I can teach Veil dancing, I can teach finger cymbals! I have my doubts, but we'll see!

    Starting to feel lucky that I have no talents . Dancing & playing instruments seem to be way more work than I could deal with .
    It is 27 here now so outside stuff is out if I can help it . A few roads are flooding so travel is changing all the time .

    It *is* a lot of work to master most any performing art. It generally takes 10 years to reach the majority of your potential. I'm a lifelong musician (French Horn and piano), so learning finger cymbals was one of the few things that was easy. Then I tried to dance while playing them - TOTALLY a different situation. It took me years to integrate them into my dancing!
    As for dancing, I came to it much later in life than I would have liked. It was Greek folk dancing at first (hence my stage name), which was a comedy of errors when I first started but I eventually became pretty good if I say so myself, and even used to teach it. Belly Dancing is another kettle of fish altogether. It was, and is, the single most difficult thing I've ever done. Today, after 18 years, I feel I've only lifted above mediocrity into the bottom side of "mere competence" in the last couple or three years. Which is why I continue - if something doesn't challenge me, I get bored with it and move on to something else.
    Kinda like shooting - I enjoy shooting my pistols because its a constant challenge to improve and I don't feel that I'm particularly good at that either!

    Holy crap!
    I had had everything in the drive train aft of the transmission tailshaft on the old MBZ gone through before I left California 2 years ago. Its a long story, but the half shafts from the rear differential to the wheels were replaced with wrong and/or inferior aftermarket junk. They were just replaced AGAIN here in Florida with the correct parts.
    What. A. Difference.
    For the 1st time ever since I've owned that car, that drivetrain is TIGHT. No lagging, no clunking, no nothing. Twitch the throttle and the car twitches.
    The mechanic told me - and showed me - there was about 3/8ths of a turn in the old ones!
