Re: “And now for something completely different”

Huge things...way bigger then in Germany. Twice a year we used to have announced alarm drill. When I was about 12-13 the evening before one alarm drill, I recorded from a history radio program an air attack with my flimsy tape recorder. Installed in class hidden inside the air duct for heating a spe...

Re: injectors self bleeding?

many people hang a part out of the way but, do not tape / plastic wrap the ends of all openings. There is a good change of dirt obstructing free flow inclusive in such small openings as the jet itself. Strict tidiness is mandatory in each job. Other thing you can bleed the pump by hooking off the ga...

Re: Mosquito trap

I just passed by a neighbour: his fence is a bug defender. A rosemary hedge- strong smell and no fear about blood sucking insects. My elbow still smells from just touching it.
Other that helps pretty much are chrysanthemum flowers

Max, give him the tip to straighten out that back, if not his spline will suffer. Nice to see his concentration on what hes is doing. About the same age my daughter made her turns on the Jawa rig...hope your boy will not start to do slalom in the forest. Miss daughter was so kind to park a tree betw...

Re: Mosquito trap

These days is the highest rain rate of the year and no mosquitoes present. Frogs, bats and EM-bacteria do the job at our farm, while at my wife's house the poison spray of the community... At dusk I can sit outside at both places. But definitely I prefer the farm with all those noises in the dark to...

Re: Worst Event on a Motorycle Not a Crash

for your info: the Hannover Autobahn Claus mentioned was probably the last concrete slap from Hitler's employment / war preparation actions in the thirties during the great depression, that survived into the nineties or more. Between Soltau and Hanover they build now for 10 or more years, so perhaps...

Re: Worst Event on a Motorycle Not a Crash

beside a water hydrant whack out of the ground and a Death Valley crash there were Adrenalin rush moments I will not forget: A) 1982 In Denmark at overtaking on tight throttle a truck rig with my Honda CB125K I had to let myself fall back and sway into the gap between truck and 4 wheel trailer with ...

Re: I've got the world's fastest Ural! Mine got to 163 mph!

Each time you switch on the current on my rev meter the needle goes to max dead stop and returns to 0... i guess some programming quirk like that causes your readings. Be happy that police doesn't do the read out... in my case the national possesion register put 70KW into the title => which means I ...

Lastly, storing cigars ....

I agree putting a cigar into the 1 aid box is a unpardonable sin.
