Again, Ygmir! Sounds like the same bug I've had on-and-off since November. Maybe you need that sinus opening procedure also? I've had it, but it needs doing again.
Mixed feelings about the rain, since I want to go to a race car swap meet Sunday in Stockton. Looking for parts for my pedal cars, yes.

There's money to be made in tinkering with the right idea. Ask Ed Malzahn. He came up with a piece of trenching equipment that looks like a chain saw on the back of a backhoe....and Ditch Witch was born. The people at his factory still tinker. They came up with the 'Super Witch', a Ditch Witch trencher on steroids with a turbocharged 850 horsepower Chevy engine, and it'll do 100' of 3" wide 4-foot deep trench in about a minute.
And it does wheelies, too.
Imagine doing a contract for cable installation with the Super Witch....done in 1/4 the time.
hey! I ran a Vermeer T-600 "back when"..........that was a digger!! cut a 1500 pair 6' deep phone line and isolated Sacramento from the rest of the world for 2 hours they say.........mis marked, so, I was not in jail.........

I told him I know that as long as I'm 2' from his marks, I'm not liable for hitting anything......he nodded and said "thanks". And just like Elliot, done it for "proof" of what can't be seen later. Like the Hof. I knew they'd not believe I have rebar on 8" vertical and 16" horizontal centers. Came in handy at building permit retro time...........

By around 74 or 75 I was old enough to have fond memories of road trips to the state capitol with him and it went statewide, but once the organization had its own legs to stand on he let them keep it growing. I don't remember what year, but it might have been at the end of the 70's when he was telling me it had become a nationwide thing.
