I'm back. At least, for today.
The CUBS lost 2 out of 3 in Milwaukee. The offense is pathetic. The pitching is, normally, effective. Yet, we contemplate trading the best pitcher in the National League for prospects, and we push our contemplations of contending to 2016 instead of 2015. We could BUY offense, if we wanted. We could contend with the pitching we HAVE, if we wanted. Why don't we want to?
The last few days have found me immersed in the work of maintaining my home. Cleaning the garage, actually. And re-arranging stuff. And making the look and feel of my home, MINE. I got the two-wheeled weed thingy running and started the laborious process of eliminating weed from around the house.
If you have gas operated outdoor stuff like lawn mowers and generators and weed trimmers, etc., you should know about, and use, a product called Seafoam in the gas you use to operate the equipment. Cars and motorcycles, too. Especially of they sit for long periods of time. Trust me. It's better than Stabil for your gas and engine. You'll never lose an engine's carburetor to varnish if you use it regularly and your engine will stay clean.
I've had the chance to put some miles on my CB750. Two wheeling is FUN. Two wheeling is dangerous - and four-wheelers don't help. But mostly, two wheeling is fun. ESPECIALLY when one can run away from traffic. That's what makes the CB750 safer than the Coot Scoot was to ride on the expressway.
I put a little windscreen on the CB750. It makes an amazing difference in the ride at speed.
I love it when I can do little things that make a difference.
