I've been invited to the Moxie festival this weekend. I don't really like the soda one little bit. It tastes like an unrefined cheap generic cola. But festival's are always fun.

Doing anything exciting, illegal or immoral this weekend?

Going to a conference where I'll discuss ways to chop things up, suck out their proteins, mix them with various chemicals, and perform voodoo on large stacks of numbers.

So none of the above.

Maybe not illegal, but there's got be at least some morally questionable element where voodoo is involved. Smiley: grin

The chopping and sucking of proteins sounds downright vile, if not perverted and unethical. Smiley: grin

Hmm waffles. Waffles and warm cherries and whipped cream. And a nice glass of lambic.

Pity you're so far away. I could fix that in an hour, assuming your differential isn't damaged.

We go out for breakfast every Sunday morning as a family thing. I almost always get a skillet but maybe this weekend I'll get some waffles.

Yes, I looked it up on Google, which is why I knew my joke was wrong. Looked at definitions of Iambic, the did a quick search for Lambic.

Differential is fine I think. No noticible issues with it anyways. It's one of those rear wheel drive axles where the axle itself contacts the bearing. it's just old and worn enough on the axle that it was able to move enough to damage the axle tube seal, resulting in a really fun gear oil leak. Near as I could tell when i did the right one a year ago, the gears in the differential itself all looked clean and sharp with no worn or chipped teeth or any excess play. Last time it took me about 4 hours, 1 hour of which was trying to get the brake disk to separate from the old axle, another was trying to retrieve the roller bearing from the old bearing that exploded while i was removing it with the bearing puller and rolled back down the axle tube. That was fun. Magnet on a stick worked eventually though! I should have replaced both of them at that time, but I talked myself out of it somehow. Definitly wish I had access to a frame lift for this though heh.

you should try one. Delicious beers and they go great with waffles and cherries, or chocolate.

That would be foolish. Waffles are inferior to a skillet. You'll regret it all week.

Tare invited our fam to a pizza party last night. A great time was had by all, kids chasing fireflies until they freaked out when we heard a scream that Tare said is their local bobcat =)
Tonight I'm supposed to go to a cook out, but that might be up in the air. My BF from high school is looking to move down here from MA, and she called me yesterday from VA asking if she could come down for a night to check out the town house next door t me thats up for lease.. If she gets here in time, we'll all hit the cook out. And Sunday it looks like Im going home shopping with her.

If she doesn't find anything near you, there always my parents house up for sale finally after 4.5 years of my sister and brother-in-law finding things that needed to be fixed first.

The photos just barely show off the great work that my family put in the house over 30 years time. We gutted the first floor, when we first move in and then lived in it for years before my father and mother decided on the final floor plan. I'm getting the teak entertainment center once the house sells along with book case in living room. The rest of the furniture, I inherited I already got and just waiting for the house to sell so Jonwin and I can do repairs to the living room and paint the interior, so I can take everything out of storage.

I'm looking at apartments all day, moving again in September. Some of the stuff they say as "selling points" is really absurd: "Water and trash included in rent!", "Conveniently located just minutes away from the bus!", "fitness center with one treadmill!", etc.

My car has a rear axle again. Took me a while this time because I couldn't get the damned axle retention C clip out. After I got that figured out, things went much better. It turns out part of the failed wheel seal was wedged between the axle housing and the axle shaft endplate. once i worked around that i was able to get the axle in far enough to pop the clip out, pull it, pull the seal and bearings and axle, and put all new goodies in. Seems to work so far.

Well, Saturday I got a new phone (HTC One) and spent half the day cleaning out my car. Yesterday we went down to my wife's mother's for a family cookout - her sister's family came down from upstate for the first time in a few years. I discovered the joys of kayaking out on Lake Oscawana.

Working defined as "wheel didn't come off while driving"?

Helped a friend brew a batch of beer this weekend, whilst drinking several bottles of the last batch. Seems like some nefarious form of perpetual motion gizmo or something. Based on the OG measurements, and assuming hungry yeast, this batch will be pretty ridiculously strong beer too.

It's pretty much a combination of "wheel didn't fall off, Car didn't explode, Car stopped leaking gear oil out busted wheel seal, and the unnatural failed wheel bearing grindy noise stopped". Mechanically a rear wheel drive differential isn't all that complicated. I like to think that if I can build a computer I was probably smart enough to at least bluff my way through installing a new axle with a chiltons instruction book thingy and picture diagrams. But we'll see if it holds up!
