It went on until we were sitting at the kitchen table and my dad yelled as he dropped the plate he was rinsing. Seems, young as we were, we were not crazy. The house ground was tied to the plumbing and used the well as the ground. The PVC pipe didn't carry the juice as well as galvanized pipe. We had 110V on the water pipes with no where to go, and the sink was a good ground through the drain lines, so when you touched both the sink and the running stream of water it jolted us into next week daily for months. (Maybe that explains some things... LOL)
Last job I had was fabricating new (and repairing) old aircraft parts. We also sold fuselages, tacked together or welded out. The owners decided to outsource the fuselages. They sent their old plywood fixtures to be used for consistency. The geniuses they contracted couldn't figure out why the fixtures "didn't work". They were clamping their welder ground to the plywood fixture and couldn't figure it out. We were back to building fuselages in house again. The good ole boys they contracted were in Tennessee...

The lack of quality will remain long after the cheap price has been forgotten.

Why; that's shocking! I got a charge out of the story, though.

The food in the fuel island deli is marked the same. If it's any indication of what the restaurant is like, the quality of the restaurant hasn't deteriorated any in the last few years.

I've been able to ride some between rainy periods.
Completed the HOG monthly challenge yesterday

Indiana has not closed completely down, the roads and State parks (with limited services) are still open.

Been looking at the old school HD SE Super Tuner spreadsheet, Calibration Quick Sync.xls, for using AFR ratios to adjust VE values.

Same as shanneba, I've gotten to ride some when not raining, and warmer temps. I feel safe when I'm outside on the bike with no one around me. We haven't had any cases of virus here, kind of a rural county. Most restaurants are closed or carry out only.

Yesterday, the weather here was wonderful. I took backroads to the Harley shop where I bought oil for the 78 XLH. Came home and got it running and hit it with Gunk and washed it off. I think this lockdown will be over in another couple of weeks and life will get back to normal soon after that. I'm really looking forward to riding to Cuba in June.

I've been wanting to ride, like badly. I have utter all apart trying to chase down a turn signal issue I can't for the life of me figure out.
Boning out a #550 Hog today and making breakfast and Italian sausage.
