        Super car....Check! Logan sucks, always has been difficult. Take a taxi to the airport problem solved.

                OK, Tim and Andy you can come also but you have to help. You will be limited to one beer per 10kg of organization.

                      Your everyday beer is probably half-litres. That's why the UK drinkers refused to go metric as we all knew we'd get 500ml for the same price as 568ml.
                      I've seen more "real man" sized beer glasses in Atlanta when they served in two-pint glasses. It was optional....but it had been a really long drive with really annoying company!

                      Get the big storage bins out and you can probably fit things like lathes, mills and grinders in for a year's supply of beer!

                      • Finally got around to doing something about the glove box door of my Honda Odyssey. The door refuses to open and when the handle is pulled, and I have exercised great restraint in not snatching the sob out of the dash. I figured there had to be a way to release the latch, and after several minutes of poking a small screwdriver in the space between the lift tab and the door, I found the magic spot and it released. With the latch in place in the door it was impossible to examine, so out it came. .
                        With it out and in my hand I saw this thing lying inside the mechanism:

                        The above bit of plastic was broken off Here:

                        The pin sticking up by the arrow is the fix. It replaces the broken off part. That little piece of plastic is what moves the latching bar when the handle is pulled up. Kind of flimsy imho. Luckily, there was enough meat in the part to allow it to be drilled and a brad stuck in it. So far it seems to be working ok. Sorry I didn't think of making pix until the job was done.

                          Any Taco Bell’s over there? Or a good steak house or sea food? How far away from the ocean are you

                            If he is down by Switzerland as I recall he said, he's almost in the middle of europe.... closest ocean may be over by Genoa or Trieste, not too close. I expect the old Wienerwald restaurants are gone, they had decent chicken 50 years ago.....

                              No Taco Bells. Steak and Seafood......that is a check! Ocean is not real close but that is not a problem for you. You will be too busy to need the ocean or to think about Taco Bells.

                                I do my best work on a full stomach. Without that stuff, I’m liable to put labels on the wrong things. Or start digging small holes in your back yard and burrying your fasteners all over the place. It could get real ugly if I go into full blown Taco Bell withdrawls.
