I'm not worried. One taste of my blood and the vampire would disintegrate!

What should I buy... :chin:

:oooh-me!:
Buy a nice dress and a pair of high heels, just for the heck of it.  :grin:

Heheh! I like your suggestion, but if you saw me trying to walk in high heels you wouldn't suggest a disaster waiting to happen. :grin:

:grin:
But they're so sexy...See?

:lol:

:rofl:

I think it was.  :snicker1:

Well, after what I just went through with the French press, the coffee grinder, and the coffee...I learned a lesson...

Looks like part of the list of materials Studebaker Hawk bought to go in pursuit of Billy the Mountain, in the album named, "Just Another Band From LA", by Frank Zappa. What a great musician. Strange, but great.

i'm mounting wheel discs on my racing motorcycle, to reduce turbulence and aerodynamic drag around the rear wheel. to do that i have to redesign the rear brake into something smaller, so i spent US$14 on ebay for a rear brake caliper from a 2007 kawasaki to see what i could do:



i only have 1/4-inch of spae right now between the caliper and the wheel spokes, and i need more room to bolt a disc in there

Brakes for the car. All four brakes needed changing.

The piezo igniter in my Barbie quit working. OK I will get a new igniter module.  Many You Tube  comments say that the igniter module craps out frequently................New module from Amazon....  Shipping cost more than igniter cost...total about $20.  Very well...... Damned new igniter did not work........Hmmmnn  I wonder if that push button switch is sending a signal to the igniter thingy.......Out with the Ohm meter......shit! the switch is bad, maybe not an igniter failure after all...... Order switch from Barbie manufacturer....... Once again shipping cost as much as item cost....this time only $10.  If I am unable to fix the damned igniter I will be forced to use matches, the old fashioned and usually reliable method.

I am sad because I could have used that $10 +20 dollars to buy a nice bottle of bourbon.  But if  the igniter parts result in successful repair I will have fewer chances of blowing myself up with propane gas while attempting to start the Barbie.

Bourbon or the Barbie? That's a tough choice. When I grilled out I'd drink a beer or two. I only used the harder stuff when the mood hit usually in the evenings when I'm relaxing.

My Barbie's igniter is OK, but she's crying out for a new evening gown. I still have to check out Ken's piezo igniter some time.
