Random Stuff

Wow... two months since I've last posted... well, life gets in the way sometimes, I suppose.

I've been on a bit of a 4X4 kick lately, looking at jeeps or other such vehicles in the vain hope of being able to afford one and go hill beating with my kids... one of these days...

I've been watching the election news out of the UK, and have come to the conclusion that all you need to know about how "conservative" the UK Conservative Party is can be determined by the fact that they are perfectly willing and able to form a coalition government with the Liberal Democrats.

Gun show this weekend! Haven't been to one in years (hangs head) and I'm really looking forward to it...

Looks like Halo 3 has been toppled from it's top spot in the household, replaced by Modern Warfare 2. The controls are a little different which can make it a bit of a PITA to switch between games, especially when you're playing against folks live.

I got my dirtbike up and running after two years of being idle - the carb was nasty, let me tell you - I'm itching to take it out to the desert, as soon as I can find someone to go with. Desert riding solo - not the smartest thing to do... or so my bride insists...

I'm there too, still barely - and agree: ixnay on the solo desert rides - too much unbearable heat and too many rocks. As a 4x4 I always wanted a big old military beater like a deuce and a half - and playing that game you have to buy a stick-welder to fix things. We used to have some down-the-street neighbors who had matching old Ford pickups. Clean one week and dented-up the next, pounded out primered a week later, painted and clean again in another, then dented to hell again...then pounded-out, primered, painted - rinse, lather, repeat...

Sounds like UK and US are very similar in their political arenas. Just keep keeping on.
