for the record, i remember when elvis died. i was in the car with my dad. they announced his death over the radio, AM of course. my dad stopped the car on the side of the highway and got out and walked around. in retrospect, i think he was crying. it was a sad day when elvis died. it was a sad day when elvis became a las vegas sideshow.

Settled into the apartment. Getting up in the morning and going to do a little fishing. Those trout won't know what hit them.

They will see you. They always see you. I have a fish staring at me right now and it's kinda freaky.

Good evening guys.

Sid, good luck with the trout. That is some kinda good eating. Fresh river trout is yummy.

Richard, are you up for lunch tomorrow?

We watch for bears, my trips backpacking in this area have learned me up on bear procedure.


Oh and we fish in s narrow canyon. Never more than 100yds from the highway keeps the bears at bay.

Lunch sounds like a good thing.

Me likes trout. Family used to spend a week trout fishing every summer.

Never tried bear. Seems like it would be a lot to clean and filet. What test line would you use?

Half the people to whom I've relayed the story can't believe that she ended things considering how angry she's been since that day. The other half thinks she's nuts to have pushed me away.....I mean, 20 yrs younger, fairly intelligent, witty, considerate, nuts about her and, while I'm not a model, I'm not too tough on the eyes...

Why would anybody beadblast the pistons for re-use?!??
What's wrong with a soak in diesel and follow up with carbcleaner?
The only surface that would be having serious carbon build up is the piston dome.. and at best you can put a scotchbrite on that.. nothing else is required.

It simply doesn't make sense to me, clean a critical engine component with a method that takes away material?? why!?

It's not a frigging huge marine engine from a 1000000 ton tanker with tolerances measured in full milimeters..It's a Porsche engine with tolerances measured in 1/10 of mm's or less.

What if he had taken material off the sides, it might cause a hotspot or wobble inside your (new?) cyllinders.. Or scratch up the cyllinder lining...

I really don't get it. There's no reason to beadblast internal engine parts, at all.
