Just for you for being declared sensitive and empathetic and not just pathetic.

Blazing Saddles is such a great movie. So many lines can never be repeated in another new movie.

Good Hump day morning. It is a cool 49 degrees here. It is about to get warm however.

Just popped in quick so I could do my weekly rant on people. Reading should be a requirement for breeding. Thanks for listening.

Didn't think real men read instructions or ask for directions.

Only if the instructions were written by somebody with intelligence. I have seen some pretty bad instructions written in Engrish.

Yup. Even the blank pages were bad as in the note on it said "This page left blank intently".

I never got very passionate about blank pages, but they put some effort into it evidently.

Had a cool .5 cubic inch supercharged nitro methane R/C airplane engine. Made a whole horsepower. It was made in Japan. Despite the very nice craftmanship on the motor the setup and tuning instructions looked like they were hand written is someone's garage. The tuning instructions were exactly the same to adjust it to run richer and to adjust it to run leaner.

The person who wrote the instructions has probably never run the motor or possibly even had their hands on one.

Another evening of working in the yard. The weather was another perfect day. No wind and 72 degrees.

"Intently." Hahaha! Also, the note means the page is no longer blank. Double fail.

Good Morning all.

We are having house guests this weekend. Nice enough couple and the guy is cool. The wife is one of those women that can't stand a few seconds of silence, so she starts talking. And rambling on about nothing. Ah well, it is just for the weekend. I may have to do an oil change on the 911 this weekend, and a brake fluid change. Both are overdue but since we are not autocrossing and I have been playing gardener I have not gotten to it.

Today we should see the sun. The grass was over 10" tall so I cut it on the highest setting Tuesday. Might get to cut it on the regular setting this weekend. And rake again.
