Colin I love that you are taking beautifull pictures all over your travels and sharring them on the forum. You have taking a step forward and I truly hope you and Glasseye can colaberate with a forward plan for publication of your "life" adventues. As I shared with you on your last visit, I have had the fortune of knowing Dave Deal and visiting him in his studio/home this July and receiving two of his books I showed you, only to give you insperation, and not beat Yourself up about yours!!!! He sadly passed away last tue Lots on net about his fame, Creator of "Cars caractures" Deals Wheels" models and so much more. My point being is that you MUST continue what you are doing with the Joy in your heart for inlightment. You are a very special man----took me 2 out of three visits to make sure--and after your visit in your squar with your dads ashes still in the back (i knew you were checking out my atunticity (sp) of the
Arctic trip) Im convinced that you will go down in history as a positive contributor to the betterment of us vw owners. Carry on ~ Barb

I recall on your visit to Oregon this summer at the lucky lab, you spoke of the similiarity of a VW carburetor and "civilizations greatest engineering". Now if I could just begin to comprehend that multi-page dual solex PDSIT adjustment procedure I printed out - wooo boy! I can't tell if my clueless level is at a 10 or a just a 9.9? :blackeye:

By the way, great photos of one of my four most favorite seasons :flower:

We can schedule an actual adjustment run-through in person. . . and tune up the toilet too.

He needs lots of competition, the creep. Jumps on Obama for tax increase when in fact he would benefit, still won't back down, and he was lying through his teeth the whole time and then has the nerve (!) to claim Obama was "tap dancing like Sammy Davis" then he gets pissed at the media for catching him lying? Typical. What a creep.

Can you imagine the nerve of some guy asking a politician a question? Incredible isn't it, what was he dreaming about? A better life for him and his family, everyone knows that can only come from Washington. Yeah what a chump.

He's a chump because he didn't even take the time to read Obama's tax plan before he (now regrets) opened his big mouth. He's the poster-child for what I can't reconcile. Why are Republicans so dead-set against ANY tax increases, even when it would benefit them. Furthermore, reducing the deficit would "trickle down" (to use words only they seem to understand) and benefit them even more.

They stop reading at "higher taxes" and will not even consider the issue further. It's this 'conservative' (read 'narrow-minded') approach that raises the hackles of people that actually took the time to read the damn plan Obama has clearly spelled out.

Even though he's not really a plumber, he can probably read. That isn't guaranteed though, if he went to poorly funded public schools because somebody was dead-set against paying one thin dime in additional taxes.

I guess I'm a creep and a chump too because Obamas plan would supposedly benefit Nan and I yet we both oppose him. Just cause Joe Plumber owes some back taxes and doesn't hold a plumbers license doesn't make his question and Obama's answer any less relevant. Obama is a socialist in American clothing.

What do you call GW running this economy into the ground so hard that the government is taking ownership or at least stake in a lot of the major banks? Sounds like socialism to me.

Somebody, please. Explain to me this inexplicable hatred by America of socialism. Aren't we inherently social beings? Americans are among the most generous people I've met, yet many seem to have a irrational fear of sharing on a national, rather than personal level. I don't get it. :drunken:
