    Good Morning!!

    Brrrrr!!! A crisp 16 degrees outside right now.....I had to actually wear a jacket for the 1st time this Winter. :wave:

    Well, I worked a little more on our washer/dryer conundrum....while I found out that I'm a really bad appliance repairman, I did however, discover lots of things about my plumbing and electrical that I didn't need to know. I realized why our dryer wasn't getting it done--the 4in. PVC pipe leading outside for the vent was 3/4 clogged all the way down(22 ft. run) with lint. I also found out that whoever put the PVC pipe in there in the 1st place, shouldn't have used PVC pipe. The heated lint passing through creates a static electricity charge that attracts lint to it's sides. Gotta get up in there and replace it with insulated metal piping for that length of a run.....it's always something, isn't it?

    We're knocking off early today to head out to the funeral for our employee who passed away earlier this week. Bummer.....he was too young.

    The weekend weather outlook looks great---back up into mid 60's and sunny, sunny, sunny!!!

    Good Friday! Short week and looks to be a much milder weekend! No big plans, winter DH race on the slopes of a local ski resort should be fun, but with gas prices higher than giraffe nuts, cutting back on the running around as much as possible.

    GH, you're lucky you found the dryer clog, that can cause a major house fire! Now, your dryer will dry in like half the time!

    Have a good un

    I would have loved to. Red Light was ok. Tons of average girls, and only a couple super hot ones. Coffeehouses, over 800 of them. Was kind of cool at first having the smell of Pot everywhere, but after 2 days, it became annoying. (I am not into Pot, so that is just my feeling) It was a good trip, and I had a good time, but I dont know if I will be rushing back anytime soon. For me, Iceland was much much better!

    Friggin' finally Friday! Short work day today, then home to pack up bike, crap, baby +mom, then head up to "the town of Tigg" (and my parents). Then it's up bloody early to pick up Tigg & meet up with all the Elevate dudes at the Gore Mtn. bike snow slalom race on Sat! Got my tires on last night....took me 1.5 hours and 1 tube to do the job...damn DT Swiss 6.1 rims! :bonk:

    Morning. Unlike Jim, I've yet to mount my tires for tomorrow's race. Guess I'll be busy tonight. Other than that, I fully expect to be knocked out of the competition early tomorrow and proceed straight to drunk. :cheers: :p

    Morning - good night at the rink last night. Cold ride in this morning. But I had some french toast, bacon and coffee for breakfast so things are off to a good start so far. Lots of hockey in store for the weekend.

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    Morning monkeys!

    Sitting here, pirating me some bandwidth, waiting for the blasters to load the first shot.

    Last night's "high impact" workout got cancelled because there was no heat at the dojo. Not much planned for the weekend, just watching football.

    Morning, not much going on. My boiler is fixed for now until the piece comes in. Skiing Saturday and Sunday, the temps should be nice until the warmer weather gets here.

    Morning, I AM STILL SICK.

    Does this cold thing ever stop? I've had it for two weeks and it's aggravating my asthma to the point I missed three work days.
