Welp, I’m sick with a stoopid cold.  Sore throat, iritable, snotty.  Cest La Vie.

Anyway, Too much drama at the old Liberal Forum.  Its the not the same anymore.  I’ve been posting there since 2004.  They recently changed owners.  The new owner is nuttier than a snickers bar.  He’s got websites concerning Israeli polititians and his efforts to stalk them.  Thankfully, Not_Prince_Hamlet set up a new forum called “On The Left.”

Working a lot of OT at work.  Ugh.  Need the money to get out of debt and help mom with her bills.  Things at work are stresfful, but marginally bearable.

On a plus note, that messy radiator patch is holding.  My car is no longer leaking and I’m able to drive without my engine overheating.  Now if I could just do something about the mess…

Welcome to the Blog of me.  I hope you find it interesting, but if not, oh well.

Yesterday was a rough day for me.  After driving home from work, my car started overheating badly.  So I pulled over twice to let it cool down.  I slept and woke up about 5 hours later and started the long bicycle ride out to get my chores done.  Returned stupid movie to Blockbuster, and bought a repair kit for my leaky radiator. 

Got home, was sick as a dog.  It was 95 degrees out with air quality warning.  I rode about 4 miles in that weather.  So I got a case of heat exhaustion.  Cooled off and called in stupid. 

 Waited a few hours for it to cool off outside.   The radiator kit was an alcholol swab, a piece of fine grain sandpaper, a flimsy sheet of fiberglass and the epoxy mix.  Despite my clumsy efforts, I was able to actually patch the crack in the radiator.  It now holds water without leaking. 

 I hope it will hold until I can replace the radiator.
