    Maybe Cos can get some work with the drug companies. What a great companion product for the little blue pills.

    2010 Major League Baseball Thread

    That's pretty funny, coming from someone who lives in MD, especially owings mills lol. Have you ever been to St. Pete or the Trop? The main problem with attendance, imo, is the over abundance of Yankees fans here as well as many other teams fans, as this area has transplants from all over. On top of that, a great deal of our residents are part timers (snow birds) and don't come down until winter. If you want talk **** you've got plenty to talk about with the Nats and the O's lol.

    Something cool thread

    Bang I was lucky enough to see McKinley Morganfield (aka MW) 5 times. In '77 (0n my 17th birthday) at DAR constitution hall with Johnny Winter and James Cotton. Louie's Rock City (same show), The Apple pie (Georgetown) with Bob Margolin, and twice at the Cellar Door with James Cotton, Willie B.E. Smith, and Pinetop Perkins ('81 and '82). The '82 show was the last show he ever played in DC (died in '83). Both of those shows I was fortunate enough to reserve a table front and center and was allowed (By Muddy) to hang out with him in the band room (above the garage on 35th street) drinking and smoking ect... He saw us peeking in the doorway of the band room and called out to us "Gentlemens come in and pull up a bottle" (he had a dozen champagne bottles). Muddy was particularly intrigued that a group of teenaged white boys were such big fans of his. Something else that's remarkable. I was born in Newport, RI in March of '60 and Muddy played the Newport Jazz festival that summer. Parents took me but Mom can't remember which day or who she saw, so it's possible I may have seen him a sixth time. :pfft: 9CvYh_qGV28

    DIY Home Improvement Thread..

    I just installed one, it's a "Noritz" and is rated for a 3 bathroom house (plus laundry, dishwasher ect...). The unit was probably around $1400 installed (if I had gas service already which I did not) plus I paid $700 for the gas lines installed with a drop for the dryer. The thing is bad@$$, automatically adjusts flame to match demand water pressure. I'm saving about $30 a month, but I'm saving another $20 on the gas dryer which dries a huge load of clothes in 15 minutes every time.

    DIY Home Improvement Thread..

    I just finished installing 13 new windows in my FL home. These meet the energy requirements for the Fed tax credit and also made with impact glass (for 140 mph winds) so that I don't have to have hurricane shutters. Last month I had a gas tankless water heater installed along with a gas clothes dryer. Electric bill is down $50 and my gas bill is $18. Last summer I built the dock and installed the 2 boat lifts. One is 15,000 lb. cradle lift and the other a 5000 lb. elevator lift. Along with that project I did a electric service change from a 100 am panel to a 225 amp panel and a 125 amp sub panel on the back of the house for dock power and to provide power for a mini spilt heat pump system for the family room addition next winter. In 3 weeks, my trips to NC start again for building season number #7 on the mountain home. This summer goals are to finish tiling the basement apartment and install the kitchen, door, trim, 2 garage doors, and fireplace. Finish the other 2 baths upstairs (2 are already finished). Lay the hardwood flooring on the 2nd floor, carpet the upstairs master bed, install doors and trim. Install front door, finish 4 flights of stairs and install handrails and balcony railings on 2 floor loft. Before I leave for NC, I've got to install 5 new windows in one of the rental houses. Plus make a trip to Ocala (lake george building lot) to finish the back fill (60 cu/yards) into 80' retaining wall on the canal. Lay 5 palates of sod.

    The "Ask a Mechanic" Thread

    I forgot to update about the wife's sebring convertible, that I was sure had a blown head gasket. After consulting with a service place called "Mostly Mopars" the owner told me that those motors rarely blow head gaskets and that he was certain it was a blown water pump that, because it's under the timing cover, dumps water right into the oil pan :nutkick: and the that the lifter that I thought I heard clatering was a rod knocking. Needless to say I didn't pour the blue devil gasket sealer in it. I sold the car as is for $2000 to a young ambicious mechanic.

    mark you've already bought the battery, might as well get a new starter and cables and complete the trifecta.

    The "Ask a Mechanic" Thread

    It appears that there is no room to pull the pitman arm off because of no clearance to the front crossmember. Am I really going to have to remove the steering box in order to do this on my '99 bravada (blazer)? :mad:

    The "Ask a Mechanic" Thread

    OK, SS, TWA, zonny my '99 olds bravada 4.3 vortec V6 with the CSFEI (central sequential electronic fuel injection) (100k miles) won't start sometimes. Engine turns over but roughly (like maybe one cylinder fires and it kicks the starter out). It's been doing for a year now off and on. When it starts, it starts right up and drives, never stalls. It's normally a cold start when it happens. It's almost like water in the gas. Major tune up and fuel filter at 80K, Just put in a new battery and starter. I use lucas fuel injector cleaner regularly (for better gas mileage). I put some dry gas (water remover) and It might be working as problem stopped for now. The fuel pump is on when it won't start but I suspect that's it's a fuel problem. I'll try it several times, leave come back later and it starts. I left it at a service place for 2 weeks and the problem wouldn't present for them. My mechanic friend says that they have been finding that ethanol has been causing the fuel filters to fill up with trash (impurities) and rust. He also that a fuel pump may be working irregularly. It does seem to be a bit down on power (maybe 10-15%) but that too could be due to ethanol.
