These are pretty good looking plants. Doing some work around the yard and saw these. Usually I miss them blooming because I’m off working.
Brewery: Rivers Edge
There is a great local brewery near us called “River’s Edge”. This is image from Sunday when we stopped in, had a pint and a ‘meat and cheese’ platter.
Gobble, Gobble said the Turkey
Nothing but your ordinary gobbler wandering around all puffed up.
They are pretty cool animals. We normally get the males wandering around from late Spring to early Fall.
Disc Golf in Hawaii – Kahului Community Park
Was able to get to Hawaii a few months ago and played the course @ Kahului Community Park. What a beautiful course. Try it out if you are in Maui.
1985 Mustang Convertible Front Suspension: Part 2
Quite a bit of progress on the Mustang yesterday.
The accident that the car was in bent the A-Arm, broke the strut inside and bent the sway bar link (all driver side). Used a death wheel to cut the link in half. Once that was done the rest was pretty easy.
I’ll need to take a look at the other strut when I remove it to make sure how the top of the strut is correctly assembled.
I also removed the sway bar to replace the bushings.
All in all it’s going well.
Not looking forward to putting the springs on but I do have the Maximum Motorsports spring tool and that should help.
1985 Ford Mustang Front Suspension: Part 1
Here’s a pic showing the front suspension of the Mustang. I’m in the process of changing the A-arm, the tie rods and the strut. Can you see what’s (horribly) wrong?
Pretty easy so far but then again, this car was stored inside and has 35k miles.
Goodbye Gordon Lightfoot
“Does anyone know where the love of God goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?” – Gordon Lightfoot, ‘The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald’
A song from my youth. Thanks and goodbye Mr. Lightfoot….
Cool Tools: The Milwaukee 1/2″ Impact
Bought myself a Milwaukee 1/2” impact. It’s awesome. Used it to change out the shocks on my Jeep. Made easy work of the lower bolts on the front shocks and all of the bolts on the rear shocks.
Cool Tools: The Swag Offroad portaband for a Dewalt DW120
I bought a Swag Portaband Table AGES ago with the switch and miter gauge. Today I assembled it with my Dewalt saw. Here’s the link to the current product.
Easy to assemble and use. In this kit they included a velcro strap to hold the trigger. I changed that to removable cable tie.
Everything Must Be Paid for Twice
I’ve spent the last few months going through ‘stuff’ accumulated over the years. Donating those things that could have value for others.
I just now tripped across this article called “Everything must be paid for twice”. First with currency and then with time.
If you look around your home, you might notice many possessions for which you’ve paid the first price but not the second. Unused memberships, unread books, unplayed games, unknitted yarns.
Yep. Weed out the things for which I’m not willing to spend the time on.
