girl got me a car cover for my birthday on Monday. I think its beautiful, but I think she's trying to tell me something

I wonder how she'd feel if i got her a brown paper bag when she comes home from France?

Most electricity in the country basically comes from steam ... just different ways of getting the steam. Nuclear, coal, and most natural gas basically use heat to create steam, which is then pushed through a turbine to spin a generator. There's nothing wrong with it, nobody has come up with a better technology yet. Fuel cells, PV panels and a few other technologies lack a kinetic step, but most power generation requires some kinetic energy to turn a generator.

Uhm, we've gone from using steam to operate a piston to using steam to be highly efficient in turning a turbine which generates electricity. I'd say thats a pretty big leap. We use that technology elsewhere too

Also, sometimes the simple stuff is a good answer. Even in the desert, using water to generate power is alot more renewable than coal or oil or natural gas, and clean too. Also i guarantee they do all sorts of energy recapturing stuff there the spent steam is used to help heat the incoming water and whatnot.

Little known fact that almost every building in the country receives enough solar energy to heat itself, had it been designed to do so, and im not even talking about solar panels or anything, im talking about glazing area, heat capture, and designing and using building materials in order to capitalize on that. Same pretty much goes for cooling strategies too.

Maybe she figured summer is almost here and she wanted your wagon to be cooler.

When you were little and your Mom gave you medicine, did you think she hated you because it tasted bad?

I know how steam is used. I'm not even saying it's wrong. Again, I just thought we'd have moved on by now.

Nah, it was actually very thoughtful of her. It lives in storage, and 9 days out of 10 (specially in the summer when i drive it less) it is outside, uncovered, in the elements.

After painstakingly restoring the paint these past 2 springs, i think she didnt want me to feel bad about leaving it outside.

However this does mean she will use "i got you a cover for a reason" as an excuse any time i EVER ask to put the nova in storage.

There's going to be a good 6 month period where that car wont be left outside for a single day i bet, because shes getting it painted when she gets back from her trip.

I had some vodka. I don't like it. People actually enjoy that stuff? Maybe I can sleep.

Dr, you're friggen insane!!! (funny part is I've actually been on this trail in colorado but it's wider now. Still was scary as hell even in a narrow CJ7! Someday I'll post pictures of our old CJ and my friends old XJ on it.)

Rumor has it the picture is actually cropped but I've never seen confirmation of it. When we did that trail in the mid 90's it wasn't nearly that bad. The switch backs were a bit sketchy though. 3 point turns with a clutch where if you rolled forward to far it was over without question. It was never on an edge like that but a mechanical breakage or slip of the pedal could make things really scary or really bad really fast. At the bottom of the switchbacks was an old snow cat that had obviously rolled down from somewhere above and the mangled mess was creepy! I actually somewhere have a picture of my friends XJ at the bottom looking up the switchbacks with the water fall and house in the background that I blew up into a poster size. I should find it and hang it in my garage!

That's like a Deadliest Roads episode.

I've already decided on a mild cam and valve job. If it doesn't need much as far as machine work I may get a Hughes intake. I don't want to get to crazy on it.

I also called the realtor today and told her that she must be doing to well financially and didnt need my money. I've called her 4 times with no response about getting an offer in on 2 houses. On to realtor number 3.
You are talking about the ported kegger intake and not the M1 right? The M1 will kill your low end.
