howdy!

Hope all is well!

Got an email from Sebring yesterday... the Corvette Corral is sold out. As an aside, the Corral at the Long Beach GP has been cancelled! And they already sold tix for it! They are keeping the parking lot, but no hospitality tent. GM is claiming budget cuts. I think it's a bad idea.

Hi guys!!!

It's been a while... been busy... been sick... returning to normal, finally.

SoCal has been a bit damp and a lot windy. Also rather cool for SoCal.

the funny thing... with prices going up, they haven't had a huge impact here in SoCal... sure, some have, but in general, not that bad.

Then again, our house value has DOUBLED in 12 years.

Howdy all!

It's that time again where two people argue to the death over their own interpretations of liberty... Happy election day!

Been quiet-ish here. My brother, his wife and their dogs had to evacuate their house due to a forest/brush fire. They live here in SoCal now, out in the Temecula area, marginally more accurate, east of Temecula. Their house is ok, and they are home now.

Rather busy... and multi-tasking during a meeting!

Working stiff here... been busy.

Last Monday was my birthday, so what do I get? A $1400 plumbers bill! There was a chunk of sewer pipe that was as just a mess. It had to be replaced.

Hope all goes well with Tommy and Tee's great grand daughter. Stressful stuff...

Been nice around here. Unusually cool, actually. Summer normally ramps up around here in September/October before a fall in November. It's all about 6 weeks early!

Monday morning... well, almost!

And we are still here. The hurricane at this hour is almost over us. It passed with 10 miles.

We got quite a lot of rain and that's it. Little or no wind, no flooding for us. Oopsie - the rain has just picked up!

The deserts got much more rain, and due to their dry existence, much more flooding. They are called 'arroyos'. These are dry river beds that become messy when hit by lots of water. They have been hit much harder than we have.

Oh, and to top it all off? An earthquake in Ojai! 5.1 or so, about 70 miles north of us.

All in all, I suspect we got about 1.5" of rain.

I am not getting dragged into this political discussion... or whatever this is.

This is one of the most significant days in our family's history... today, in 1977, my Dad died. He was 55.

He died of a massive stroke and heart attack, caused by kidney failure, caused by kidney disease, caused by an injury sustained in the military way back in 1953... We knew he was sick, but not that sick.

Back in Jan 2022, I bought 4 new Bilstein shocks for my C6. I finally got around to installing them last month.

Surprise! The bottom mounting shaft was wrong. It was too short that the 2 holes did not align to the lower control arm!

I reached out to the Tire Rack and they kicked ASS. My contact there, Jenn, reached out to Bilstein, and after a couple of emails and some pictures, validated a fitment issue.

They refunded my original shocks and I ordered 2 new ones. They arrived about 10 days ago. Last Saturday, I opened them up and one was perfect, the other? IT WAS SHORT! Had the same exact problem my shocks had!

And it appeared it was a returned shock. The washers, bushings and top bolt were all fitted to the shock shaft, vs being in the bag.

I reached out to Jenn again... this time, she handled the replacement personally. She learned that the batch was the key, and a set of numbers stamped on the bottom of the shock. This afternoon, that final replacement arrived and it is right! LOVE IT! Yay!

I cannot praise Tire Rack enough. They took care of me 18 months after purchase. This is a master class in customer support. I have been a lifelong customer, and that will never change.

Later today, I will install... get as much done as my achy knee will let me...

I read that article yesterday... They should be locked up. Civil forfeiture my ass, modern highway robbery. They will, at some point, pick on the wrong sucker and will get seriously burned. Worst part? The Nebraska State Supreme Court backed it up!!! Damn.

If you didn't read it, do so. It's coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs.

As a side note, back in the 80s-90s, there was a stretch of interstate in Ohio that was seriously patrolled by a local PD. The Interstate ran through their town, but they didn't have any actual exits in their town, so they had to leave jurisdiction to get to their part of the Interstate. This was a small town that simply ran up huge traffic tickets. Always vague, things like weaving in lanes, no signal, tailgating, things like that. Well, they did this to an Ohio State Representative! That changed things. He got a serious fine, learned that this town of 1500 or so (don't remember the exact figure) had like 20 cops! All on the payroll created by these insane traffic violations. He had them shut down... basically, by changing the state law that restricted city police from patrolling the Interstates.

And my fave government gone rogue, even better than Führer Ron Desantis, do a google search on Bellflower, CA. They got shut down about 10 years ago now... city admin were getting paid $300k+, based on all sorts of graft and corruption. It was horrid.

I am already seeing ads on MotorTrend!

This is an event I would love to go to, but after talking to Gary (our English Corvette friend) at Sebring, I am a little tempered. He indicated that the Corral is off the beaten path and is kinda far. That and the sheer chaos of the place. But still...

Back in 2010, my then job had me going overseas. In 2009 and 2010, I had been to England, France, Holland, Germany and Italy. Got to visit the Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini museums, a soccer game at Old Trafford... My next stop was supposed to be a trip to Denmark in June. I had a plan! But that was blown by scheduling conflicts. Sad.

I am allergic to strawberries... thank God.

Today is the 20th year since my big brother, Roy, passed. He died of brain cancer... he was 52. He is missed. And he is loved. Roy was such a kind and caring fellow, of all people, he did not deserve this... Horrid disease.

on a brighter side, we bought a new car over the weekend. A super clean 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV! It has 125k miles, but was a private livery. This means the owner drove people to and from LAX. This also means they had to keep up on maintenance and keep the truck clean. It has 125k on it, but it looks like half that. And thanks to a technical glitch, we got it for a song! They updated the Cargurus.com page with a corrected price, but it took too long to update, and thanks to that presenting on my phone, we got that price!

Drives super nice. Black on black. Still have the Suburban, and will for a bit. I am working on the Vette and will need my own vehicle until it's done - brakes, shocks, little things. But the shocks I ordered (Bilstein) were wrong... the bottom mounting pin is too short and the holes don't line up with the lower control arm. Drat. Just waiting on Tire Rack and Bilstein to get it sorted out.

That's it from here!

We'll be there!!!

The corral rocks here. The parking is the BEST.

Parking in LB is a bitch anyway, but during race weekend... forget it. But, the corral is placed near the start-finish line, in the marina. The tent and parking area are fenced in and there are security guards at either entrance. It is super cool. About 100 Vettes or so.

My knee is still killing me, but I will get some pics.

rain... more wonderful rain...

The drought is slowly fading away... thank goodness. Not without a price, tho. Flooding, trees down, things like that. So far, mud slides are happening, but not damaging things.

The reservoir's are slowly filling up... and they are measuring snow in the Sierra's in YARDS!

Happy Holidays everyone!!!

Some thoughts about foreign aide...

* Many times, it's medical supplies. We have strange rules attached to expiration dates. Legal things, persnickety people. However, these supplies are still good. So we give them away. The manufacture sells them to the government at cost, get a nice tax break and someone overseas gets supplies they desperately need.

* We have learned throughout history that letting others fight their wars is cheaper than DIY. Yet, we still seem to do it. There are other times that the political fallout is so damned dicey that getting involved is nothing short of national suicide. So, sending money is much safer for our own survival. I am referring to the Ukraine here. As much I as I would love to mobilize NATO, doing so could easily mean ICBMs landing all over the US.

For what it is worth, spending money like this is much cheaper than having to deal with them hating us, which they would do... hate is the wrong word, resent is more like it.

It's complex, but it is what it is... I just wish we would stop backing the wrong dictator... but I could go on and on about that aspect of our history... don't even get me started about Vietnam....

Tuesday and the sun is out!

It has been a rainy December, which is great.

My nephew lives out in the desert near Temecula, and they got a nice little 1" snow. It also snowed down in the mountains near Huntington Beach!

Working hard... otherwise, that's about it.

Hey, Ultraman - What about the Huskers new coach? I am staying optimistic.

It has rained here. Quite a bit. Pretty heavy, in fact.

We need every drop, and more importantly, every snowflake... which the mountains have gotten in spades!!!

Howdy gang!

Sunny and cool down here. Very seasonable. Been a bit damp, too. Which is great!

81 years ago, we declared war on Japan. The next day, Hitler declared war on us. It took us 3 years and 9 months to wipe the world of both enemies. Pretty damned impressive, when you think about it.

I splurged and bought one of those Balsam Hill artificial Christmas trees. oh, so very nice!! even has a remote for the lights!!

I think Van Steel makes a control arm kit, too. Or they did.

Death by lathe? Sounds gruesome.

Sad about Christine McVie. Lovely artist. I have used this metaphor a few times.... The George Harrison of Fleetwood Mac, not the most prolific, but what she did write was magic.

Happy December... Been chilly here. Chance of rain, about 60F today.

Here in SoCal, it's been much cooler. Chilly for us, really.

Overnight lows are into the high 40s, daytime, maybe 70.

It's the 40's part that is chilly. The 70 part is pretty damned near perfect!

Thinking that a month ago, we were using A/C, and here we are now using heat! We have the furnace set to 65, it usually kicks in about 0500 once or twice before the sun comes up. Takes the edge off. We also have a little electric/oil space heater. It's a very nice deLongi. It is an oil filled radiator that is electrically powered. Heats the bathroom perfectly.

Otherwise, a busy day ahead!

Tommy looks tuckered out.

This season in WEC was a great learning experience and with some wins. 2nd here was a win!

I am curious what the future will bring... but as long as the Corral's stay, all will be sorta ok!

Quiet day for a change. No crazed phone calls, no rushed meetings. Gee, I have gotten things done!

Went out for dinner... 17th wedding anniversary! Yay for us!
