normal trainer but a computer runs how much tension there is. The
monitor shows actual roads and hills ect. Along with another rider
that you are trying to beat. It also shows your pedal efficiency,
watts, rpm, heart rate, ect, ect. This thing is way too smart for me,
I'm hopeing Aaron and Garth figure thiers out so they can show me.
Actually, I have used it twice now and I have never sweated so much in
my life. It will be a great winter and summer training aid.

and ran well. Sarah also ran but missed her finish (sorry). I did
not run today because 10 miles doesn't really challenge marathon
runners like me............... I kid, I kid

up the fireplace and makes the 23" tv look a little larger.
After living in this house for a few years I can mark that one off the
to do list.

One of the pictures show how we covered everything except where we were working. Someone mentioned it looked like some kind of surgery going on. Well, out of 24 valves we found one out of tolerance (.18 to .23mm intake and .28 to .33mm exhaust). It's kinda funny to think that the difference between a good valve clearance and one that is out of tolerance is the thickness of a human hair. Aaron measured one and it was .05mm thick.
We found another valve that was close to the upper range so we decided to change shims but could not find a shim that would work. I started to get a little cocky while changing the second shim and decided that I did not need to cover up the engine. Sure enough I dropped one of
these tiny shims down into the engine somewhere. I thought I was going to puke,,,,,,, but was pretty sure it did not go down somewhere I could not get to it. Sure enough I was able to retrieve it with a magnet.
Everything back together and engine started and no loud noises, so I considered it a success.

Skillet in Kennewick Wa. on 11/03/09. Sorry poor iphone quality video/audio but it was a great concert.
Had a great time at the Skillet concert Tuesday night. All the bands were great. Skillet was unbelievable. The crowd was not quite a sell out but hopefully these bands will come back again, hopefully not on a Tuesday night.
I will try to put some of the many videos I took on the blog soon.
Skillet Fans. (I think thier parents just droped them off and left them)
After I took this picture some lady that was sitting behind me asked, "Are all those girls yours"? I did not know what to say.............. I instantly thought to myself, "are your kidding me?" All these little rockers were very good and enjoyed the concert.
