Well, I got the 1st shot this morning. No soreness yet at 3 hours in. Do feel a little sleepy, but probably from getting up early.
The home front is AOK so far, and the biggest problem I detect today is figuring out a thermostat housing for the Vette. This one’s been a real brain teaser.
Now, on to the work “20.”

Hmmmm, once again I have nothing to report. Working too much I guess. Against my better judgment I’m getting my first installment of vaccine tomorrow morning. All reports say the 2nd is the worse of the two. If I’m not back in a day or two, you guys’ll figure it out.🤡
I asked Harassment-Resources (HR) if difficult reactions to the vaccine could be considered excused absence. They consider it a voluntary choice and missed work an un-excused absence. Great.
Have a great Sunday Gurus!

Hi guys.
Nothing to report here other than to say it seems things are going generally as planned. But then again, I only glossed over the recent postings.
Tee, glad the wife is doing better.
Have a great day Gurus!

Hi all,
Just another Wednesday here. Trying not to be too white so I can have a coke later. I guess if I try a little more each day I’ll eventually stop being so horrible. But no matter how white and horrible I am, no one minds accepting my tax money.

End of rant.

Otherwise, with each day, spring is closer than yesterday.
Have a great day Gurus!

Well after reading of the construction horrors in yesterday’s posts, I don’t feel quite as bad. In our platt, the builder was sued by the original owners for cutting too many corners. 15 years ago we did a big remodel and it was a nightmare.
We had a project manager that left the state without any notification to his employer, friends, etc.
after a couple weeks I called to find out why we hadn’t seen any workers, they started giving excuses, but had to eventually admit what they knew about the guy that left.
The next thing was tradesmen showing up not knowing what they were there t9 do. I missed a great amount of work because of them and their irresponsible actions.
To this day, i still believe the only reason they work in home improvement is because they’re not responsible enough to work in a car wash.

Well, that’s my ranting for the day. I hope you all have a great day.

Andy, it sounds like you had a great time! I have a school chum that lives in NorCal id like to visit and hit some shows with. I can only imagine the cherry an/or wild and gorgeous rides I’d see out there.
I could stand to drop a few pounds myself, but I never remember my goals until I’ve finished the Snickers bar. Then it’s remorse and self loathing.
Have a great day and week everyone!

Hi guys,
Well I managed to get put in Facebook jail because I’m prone to enjoying freedom of speech. I wish we had some sort of legal provisions to guarantee free speech.
Anyway, Here ya go Gris...

Regarding the criminal non-citizens, earlier this week I was in a convenience store and overheard some local guys talking about it.
They brought up the FB posting that says, “millions of gun owners, billions of rounds of ammo. If they were the problem you’d know it.”
These guys amended it to say,” maybe they should be now”
I’m not too sure I can go along with that, but I understand the frustration with things.

I hope you guys are feeling better soon. I just glossed over today reading. I’ll try to give it more attention at home.

Talk about coincidence! I had to cough up $185 to get my sons pc fixed today. Last fall the hard drive died, this time they say the ram croaked.
Otherwise not a bad day. Cashed in on a favor owed and took today off. Had an extended lunch with the homies and found out about all kinds of stuff that went on in the college days. I didn’t know about these “habits” of the young women then because I was always at work. Probably for the best.
Gris, it seems we agree about impeachment 2.0. Probably about 1.0 as well.
Have a great one Gurus!

Here in the Buckeye we don’t have weather as bad as some of you, but it still stinks. I might actually take a two day weekend this week!
I don’t know where the doctors find their appointment takers.
You can call and say you just did anything from stubbed toes to gunshot wounds and they’ll ask if you can make it on Thursday two weeks from now.

So I’ve got this build underway, and I’m almost ready to set up my system.
Back when I bought it, it was a pretty good unit.
I bought it then so it wouldn’t magically turn into new carpeting, drapes or the like.
I have a FAST EZ-EFI retrofit multi point system.
I’m reading some of the FB groups stuff, and it’s helpful, but it seems like these guys are always fighting with something on their FAST units. I’m thinking there’s probably a much more readily tunable unit out there, from Edelbrock, Holley, etc. what I’m hoping for is the best out of box, runs great experience.
Does anyone know people that have tried different brand units?
As always, help is appreciated!

I like the YaxTrax ice creepers. In January 05, I fell on ice and busted the right leg. After that, always had some around.

In a bit I’m going to post in Tech. If anyone is interested, take a look.

Tommy, I always tell myself that she’s there because some guy’s really sick of her s-it.
Thank for complement Tee! Mucho appreciado! Just doing what’s right.
We’ve got chilly sunshine here in the SW Buckeye. I guess we’ll get what’s either in the west or northern Midwest in a couple days. 6 mor days to the weekend Gurus! I’m off to the work 20.

The lack of vacation time never really bugged me until a couple years ago.
One of the biggest reasons we didn’t travel was family needs. For a long time wife and kids food allergies weren’t figured out. Between that and kids dragging home school illnesses, a very high amount of work absence was to hold the fort as the healthy person in charge. I’m familiar with the swim meet gypsies. One of my best homies did that for years, for three girls. It started with gymnastics then morphed into swim teams. Michigan, Florida, And everywhere in between. It seemed as if he only had about 2-3 weeks off a year between seasons.
But, onward and upward Gurus!

I guess I’m just way behind in life. We haven’t taken an actual, week-long vacation since 2002. And that was the trip to Disney in Florida we took for the kids with moms life insurance cash.
The results of being the lone breadwinner for over 20 years.
There were a few long weekends, but that was the only full family vacation we’ve ever taken.
Maybe next year?

Those temps are very enviable.

Gris, stay warm there buddy. Stay inside and pour up a little “liquid heat” if need be.
We’ve gotten a bit more than yesterday, but the cold temperatures are keeping it white.
Tommy, you’re doing better than the people that bought GameStop on Friday. They’re taking a bath today as the hedge funds are kicking back with the help of brokers.
On the automotive front, I may have finally figured out the last details of the fuel system and where to mount the regulator. I’ve been very close to selling the FIRST intake and going to a central port system. There’s just so little room for this component.
Sometimes it just makes my head hurt!
Enough of my whining, you guys have a great day.

Hiya all,
Just vegging with the Missuz tonight. Here in my section of Ohio, we get a fairly manageable amount of snow each year. It’s odd though that the weather line is where I70 runs east/west north of town. Even the weather babes give different reports for The Dayton area and The area north of I 70.

It was nice to have a day off. I get lots of small cuts and slices in my fingers and hands thru the week, and just one day really helps with the healing process.
Have a great week everyone!

Hi Gus, just checking in.
Tommy, at first I was pretty envious of your weather, but then I thought about the storms you also get. I’d say you’ve earned the pleasant weather today.
Letty, I’m the same way about not watching the news sometimes. We all need a break from the junk once in a while.
Have a great day Gurus!

Cold and rainy here in the Buckeye. I actually got 8+ hours last night and boy do I feel better. Sleeping in the cold house after working in a cold factory was getting very old, very quickly.
Stay safe you guys!

Geez! The cost of dental work is crazy! I’ve got about $1500 in my implant, and I thought I was getting robbed!
I will say it’s cool to watch them being made. Mine was made right in front of me.

Otherwise, news from the Palatial double-wide was more plumbing this past weekend. I think we all feel about the same about it.
Had to re-seal the master throne to the floor. Can you feel the excitement?!
Next up was the place not heating properly. We have a boiler system, and it was running, but no heat.
It only cost about half an implant to get it fixed.
The adventure continues Gurus!

Hi all, just checking in.
I’ve been working on the Vette as I can. Currently, I’m finishing out the fuel system. Doesn’t seem too hard, until you try to put the pressure regulator somewhere close to the rail. There’s just no space where I want it, and the closest source for fittings is 40 minutes away. And they don’t always have what I want/need.
I’ll “figger” it out, just takes time. Oh, and money,too.
Have a good weekend!

Hi guys.
Been busy with junk as usual. Daughter is thinking of a new ride and we’re getting a good deal of quality time looking. The current preference is a Subaru Forrester. Lots of money!

My ‘89 has been converted to C5 front brakes and this week I found a set of calipers with the “Corvette” logo on the fronts. But to get them I had to buy the rears too.
Now I need to sell the rear calipers. If anyone is interested, shoot me a message.
Work was canceled yesterday for a water main break, so I actually got two days off this weekend. Maybe I’ll actually get some sleep tonight.

Hi guys. I’m still working 7+ days/week. The “white people” in the office are supposed to be doing a wage review to see if it needs to come up in order to get more guys in here. We keep hiring toolmakers for 3rd shift and they quit when their training is over so they don’t go to 3rd.

I keep seeing on tv the democrats want to purge anyone conservative. If they do, who’s going to pay their welfare?

T, happy Birthday to you. That’s a good looking Caddy.
Tommy, I’m glad you’ve been successful at the casino. I don’t have the luck you do. If I went to that casino, you’d be the one to take my money home!🤪
Congratulations on the Great grandson Gris! He’s in a good family.
And the cartoon is accurate as well!

If I’ve left anyone out, it’s by accident, and I’m happy to be back on the guru as well.

Merry Christmas Friends!
Pretty much ready for it here. The only thing I have left to do is start my shopping! It’s a short list, something for the missuz.
Marc, the way it was explained to me is there are arms chambered for .223 and those for 5.56mm. The 5.56 is the physically and only slightly larger of the two, so it will take the .223. But chamber’s for the .223 will not accept the 5.56mm. I hope I don’t have that backwards. And please, Correct me if I’m wrong.
Have a great Christmas Eve everyone!

Mat, I hope the wife is doing better and is great for Christmas. You’re right about the scary part.
Stay healthy!

Good morning, all.

Bob, that's great news.



Thank you John. And thanks to the rest of you guys as well.
I’m pretty sure there’s something wrong with me though. When I was quarantined, all I wanted to do was get back to work. But yesterday while driving in, I didn’t want to go. I’m pretty sure I need a good bartender to discuss this with.

Well howdy folks!
I’ve been released from exile! I was having trouble getting results of my test and call the EHS/safety gal at work. She sent me to a distant county where I could get a quick test. Sure enough, I got my results as I was cruising home.
I’m a NEGATIVE guy! So I took the copy of my printout with me, and enjoyed another action packed evening of die repair. So now I’m eligible for holiday pay.

I see you’ve all been busy since my last drop in.
Tommy, I don’t know how you can do it. If I hit that payout I’d probably quit while ahead. Usually I feel pretty lucky if I just get the money back on a bet like Letty did.

T, I tried to pay a guy well once. We have radiant heat thru the floor here, a once had a blackout during a bad winter storm. A friend set me up with his electrician buddy who came on a Sunday, in a storm, to help. He wired in an outlet on the boiler so I could run it off the generator, saving my foundation from cracking and breaking up the water lines within. I handed him a check for $125 and he refused it as too much. I told him he’d saved my butt and my foundation along with the expense of going to a furnace after all the damage. He still refused so I asked him to name his price. Finally I was able to give him $75. But make no mistake, he saved my azz.

And Marc, I agree about the legalized casinos. I don’t care much for them either. Ohio has them now, but one of the early attempts to get them voted in was for one guy to have the state’s license, and it was worded in the whole thing that if an Indian casino ever came in, he’d no longer owe state taxes. So by that, you know he’s going to do a back door bankroll of an Indian casino probably before his own gets built.

I could go on, but this is already waayy too long, so I’ll just say,
Have a great one my friends!

Hi everyone.
Safe travels Letty, have a good time! Try to keep your teeth out of the dash. It’s hard to floss out. Long story of how I know.
Mat, and everyone, get and stay healthy.
So, I’m on day 6 of my exile. Still feel fine. No loss of taste or smell. No temps, coughing or other typical issues. I’m hoping to get my negative results PDQ as I don’t want to miss out on holiday pay.
I’m not sure, I may have only one more working Christmas holiday after this before I, “graduate,” and become a trophy husband.
Stay with it everyone!

Right there with you Gris!

Haven’t heard from you for a while Mat. Hope you’re all ok.

Btw, day five of exile. So far so good.

Have a great day Gurus!

Sorry for the loss of your friend John. I agree, that’s a crummy way to find out. When my dad passed, I was responsible for collecting the mail. When the Christmas cards came in, I found myself calling folks to let them know. While uplifting to know the old man had such long lasting friendships and ties to relatives, it hurt to have to let them know.
Think of the great times with happiness.
