"Also the double zipper system sucks, how am I supposed to hold a cigarette and open both zippers at the same time? No but really one zipper won’t make a difference. Do better.:"

User error. They obviously need to up their cig game.

RIP Boise State :(

Well I guess Hawkeyes getting beat by Richmond blew my bracket too.

I wish Memphis and Tennessee could meet head-to-head, but they're in opposite brackets and that couldn't happen until the championship game. Memphis is definitely not getting anywhere near that far.

I feel your pain. :(

I have a Reminder app on my phone that I think I wore out. :lol:

Good question. Dunno. If the wax is shot, it's shot, so I guess there'd be no harm in firing it up for 3 hours and seeing what temp it gets up to. Just visually, though, the surface of the cooled wax is much more turbulent-looking than what I've ever seen before. That could be because I've never let wax cool with the chain still submerged, though... :foo:

I'll check it out over the weekend.

The google machine says low is 190 and high is 300, cannot attest to veracity of this statement though

Have any of yous Shimano disc brake folks tried out the Kool Stop organic pads (KS-D625)? Shimano pads are backordered for month and months and I'm due.

I have used various aftermarket pads and all have been fine. No specific memory of Kool Stop.

I made the mistake of mowing and fertilizing all lawns on the property without first making sure there was beer in the house, so I had to hustle up to the store directly after spreading Ironite. Got a Tecade michelada and a bag of potato chips.

I do like their rim brake pads. I haven't tried their dick brake pads yet though.

I should probably go through and check all disc brake pad thicknesses this weekend. I'm terrible about checking them.

Now I'm looking forward to michelada weather.

I remember you saying you never had it. I haven't gotten it on the Air since I use Safari for BF, but it still puzzles me.

I’ve already mowed once.

That is the one thing I have not gotten back to after the crash.

There is still a patch of snow in the shady part of one of the lawns.

I didnít even like standing that close to that thing. I could envision the roaches crawling around inside.

That's a long way for a silver lining.

The roaches can't really get to the chili/cheese, they come in bags.

But they can crawl in the machine and the nozzles.

Grilled snapper marinated in white wine and garlic then stuffed with lemon and fresh oregano then slow grilled. Simple salad of baby greens with a dressing of olive oil, lemon juice and homemade tarragon vinegar.

Poor Heidi! She is trying to do her taxes. Her income is pretty low, but she does have to file. She has wasted time doing “free” online tax programs only to find all of them insist she has to pay $50-80 to actually file them.

After much frustration, we decided to print out the 1040 form and have her file with paper.
