  1. My opinion is that engines run on fossil fuels and motors on electricity. That being said I 'm satisfied that I'm intelligent enough to make the distinction myself. I'm not concerned with what we call them.
  2. Awesome video Steve and a great song. I think about that almost daily how lucky we all were to be born in such a great country. Hat's off America!
  3. Thank you Craig and everyone for you prayers and concern. Bob I would love to meet you too. Now for the latest update: I got back out of he hospital last Friday I very quickly began to improve just being here. It seems that when we get one thing back under control along comes another problem to solve. The latest was low sodium and blood pressure. Now that these are back in check for the moment I would be happy with a no new problems stretch. Again, thanks for all your support and rest assured, I'll be lookin' atcha!
  4. Thanks Mike.
  5. I thought it might be time for an update on my health status. The past several months have seen me in and out of the hospital for several issues, the latest being fluid retention in my abdomen. The problem has been that I can't get rid of this fluid which is caused by my malfunctioning liver and other organs leaking into the cavity. So far they have take fluid from me by paracentesis which is where they insert a long needle int the cavity then hook it up to vacuum bottles that suck the fluid out. The first time they took five liters. The next time they took ten which is all they can take at one time. The last time it was 7. I will have another one tomorrow. The reason for the most recent hospital stay was o try more aggressive treatment. Now they have upped my dose of lasix to 40 mg twice a day which should help greatly to take it away. This all seems to be working so they packed me up and sent me home yesterday. So there you have it. If you are interested I will try to keep you up to date better than I have. I intend to stay on as a Moderator as long as the powers that be will have me. It has been and continues to be a pleasure to help out. Thank you all.
  6. Great looking sign and a great find too.
  7. Happy belated Birthday!
  8. Look great on there.
  9. Look, I was offered the job of helping to moderate this forum. I can't differentiate moderating my friends and members I don't know. You have to be all the same to me. So I'm going to do my job to the best of my ability. The home spun pics seem to outnumber the show pics so I moved it back. But I will tell you this, wagging a finger and stomping a foot at me will get you nowhere. rmaynard you comments are right on with the bold type and capital letters. I don't like being yelled at either. I have corrected an action I took that I felt was justified because I jumped the the gun somewhat. My apologies for that. If we can't let this be the end of it the we'll close the thread entirely.
  10. Me, and because it appeared to me that the pics were taken an a couple different shows. There's the simple answer to your simple question. If it makes you happy, I have moved it back, Don't want to hurt anyone's feelings here. We just don't all see things the same way I guess. Better now?
  11. I believe item 24 is a stud for positioning the mounting bar so it's in the correct hole then you bolt the engine down with the nut. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong here. This way the bolts will line up as they should for finishing bolting the engine down.
  12. Thanks for the update. I can fully understand your wife's concern about travel distance to see him. It can be very hard and trying to maintain a relationship with him and the medical staff taking care of him. My heart goes out to you.
  13. That's a really nice looking 520-H. Some light cleaning and she'll look near new. Price seems reasonable for such a complete package deal too. I'm jealous. lol
  14. Your lawn is looking good! Nearly spotless and smooth as a baby's bottom.
  15. Very nice tires. Those old ones were in rough shape although I have to admit I would have kept the old ones with tubes till they blew out. I a;so love those one off powder coated hub caps. They create a nice touch and hide those weights very well.
