Co detectors can be had for about $30 at Lowes or HD. You should have one permanently versus borrowing one. Good luck.

Besides the 2 companies Semper recommended, Trystate Cleaning and Mitigation (804-397-9469) is another option I'd highly recommend. ( ...and The Man rides a GS 😁)

I have several CO alarms, two of which were beeping when I walked in the door (the one near the furnace, oddly, not), but I would like something that gives numeric readings until I can get one myself.

I was just buying one a couple weeks ago. The ones that give a rearing are $40 or $50 but they have them at the uhome improvement stores too. I'm cheap and went with one without the display. After reading the fine print they all have to alarm at the same levels.

The Flying Pig

I found a new to me restaurant yesterday that I thought I should recommend. The Flying Pig at 13560 Waterford Place,
Midlothian, VA 23112. I thought the food was excellent. It took me forever to order. Lots of unique dishes. I ended up getting a barbeque burger and it was one of the best burgers i have ever had. I wonder how many times I have said that?... My son ate well there yesterday and ate leftovers for lunch well today. He is not a good eater. We will be going back. His chicken tenders and mac-n-cheese where the best of both i have ever had. The batter on the tenders reminded me of what my mom used to use on fish. Corn meal maybe?

I'd rather be lucky than good any day. I was talking with a neighbor, and he mentioned he had an old motorcycle in his basement (the old family home where he was born). He parked it there in 1981 when he went off into the Navy.



It hadn't moved since.

It is an all original 1972 AMF Harley-Davidson 125cc Rapido dual sport. The engine spins over and it has a title.

I am a lucky dawg. She is coming home to Petersburg with me tomorrow.

With any luck, I may be able to convince the Moto Giro judges to grandfather it into the rally.

More fun with bearings. Swapped out the swing arm bearings on the wrr. That went fine. Started pulling apart the bearing in the L shaped and they are all frozen. One of the 3 is the type with the cage and the other two are just needle bearings. I have the part soaking in mineral spirits hoping the needles can be popped loose after sitting for a bit. That is how bad they are. Just ordered another $90 in bearings.

Why does it need to be grandfathered? Also, great find.

The Moto Giro is limited to motorcycles 305cc and under, and which were manufactured prior to Dec 1968 (model years 1969 and older).

However, the event director has the authority to grant exceptions for later bikes that are basically unchanged from the same model that qualifies. So a 1969 Harley Rapido is perfect, but the same model version 1972 needs a waiver. I'm fairly hopeful they will grant it, since the 65cc-125cc category has so few competitors.

If I can get it running and plated, it will be for my nephew to use. I plan on riding the 77cc Yamaha YG5T. You'll be able to see them both on Saturday!

Just made a test batch of the vegetarian dish for Jeff's. I am going to be making a Tofu Parmesan. It does have eggs and cheese. I was quite skeptical and figured I would be tossing the whole batch and the pan I cooked it in, but it is actually pretty good and I am about to go get another plate. Hopefully my habit of not measuring anything wont be my downfall and I can pull it off again when it matters.









Disclaimer: I am neither Italian nor a vegetarian. I didn't even stay at a holiday inn express last night.

I live right around the corner. It is a pretty good place. I like all the different sauces. With that being said I'm a little biased to Benny's BBQ since my cousin owns it ;)

Sweet Score! My first love was a 1973 SX 125 (Of which the once rolling chassis is still leaning against the fence).

Still bargaining with the better half for time this Sat, This is my only weekend off this month.
