Fred,....Rohr 714's,for sinus,really....? Cripes,everybody knows they were really used for the gout,rheumatiz and general drug abuse in the 70's ! Thank God I'm simply a beer man. With this week's events of Criminal & Terrorist Insanity in the Boston Area,it's good to come to a sane place like Freddy's....We've got to handle the fact that we Live on a different footing these sad days,Folks. We've got to make that Living count. Help our maimed,bury and mourn our dead,and break the myth that we enjoy being Pearl Harbored. We've all got the stones to make this a good Life......Thanx for the coffee,Freddy...However,the Company we keep here is even better !!

Also happy to hear that the dude in Boston was caught alive. I hope we can get some info over what happened here. Sounds like Russia (presumably) knew something was fishy about the older brother last year. Hopefully we can learn some details to know if Russia may have had intelligence which could have prevented this attack. .


Lets not get too crazy about Russia. They where chechians. I know its a Russian state but this part of Russian really doesnt want to be a part of Russia. Read up on this ISLAMIC state. Not a nice place.

I realize that. What I was referring to were the reports that Russia asked the FBI to investigate the older brother who was seeking to travel to the Russian Federation last year. The USA has a fairly strained diplomatic relationship with Russia and I am wondering if Russia may have known more about the older brother which was not shared. If this young man had connections to Chechen rebel organizations I'm sure Russia knew about him.

Then this would be a clear fail on our current administration efforts to utilize information on counter-terrorism, thus given Russia warned us of him.

Hi all,

Beautiful day here in the Nation's Capital Region. The bee hives are up and buzzing so I've turned my attention to the yard. I shouldn't have to do anything to the hives for another week or so and then it's just a fast looksy to make sure all is well. This week I seeded my wildflower garden and weeded the lillirope edging. The Hostas are coming up and I got the Repellex tablets in the ground next to them so that the rabbits and other grazers won't eat them. I had good luck with the tablets last year and they sure beat having to sprinkle red pepper on the plants after every rain - with the tablets one time and I'm done. Throughout my endeavors this past week, I was excited to see an increase in the number of worms I found in the flower beds and throughout the yard. I'm glad to see the leaf mulch I put down is breaking up the clay. The blue berries bushes are getting ready to bloom. The only thing I have left to do is frame the blue berry patch with yard timbers - that's pretty easy but does take time.

Tonight is supposed to be a bit cooler - dropping to 37* or so. It's the same for tomorrow night. I have been waiting for the last day of frost as stated in the Farmer's Almanac before I put in my hummingbird garden - around here that's April 17th. I bought the dwarf Red Salvia and will get it in Monday afternoon. Last year the first hummingbird around here was sited the end of Apr. You can track them on line. After that, I'm done with the yard. It's the same every year but it's low maintenance and looks like someone gives a damn. :)

Then I'm on to my next project - refurbishing the Mark I I picked up for DK's man cave. Refurbishing is an overstatement. It's in really good shape so all I have to do is prep it, paint it and add some new fire bricks and gaskets. That should keep me busy for a couple of weeks or so.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend, be safe. Lisa

It is available at most marinas and a few stations near me, VT also. I would be surprised if the marinas in MA don't sell it also.

I would be shocked if they did. Even still, I'd have to drive 2.5 hours east ONE WAY, sit in traffic for 80% of that, pay $1.20 per gallon MORE than around here, & burn up $80 in fuel to do so. Hardly worth the effort.

If I could get my hands on some aviation fuel, that would be sweet ... but I don't want to get tackled by TSA for asking a question ... :lol:

It would be illegal for them to sell it unless they added "road tax" to the price which would negate any savings. It's the same reason whey you can't use #2 fuel oil in your diesel truck.

First time I am in morning coffee. Good morning group, cool one last night we got down to 30. Do have a list of chores to do for the day one of them includes cooking a bacon explosion on the big green egg grill 8-)

As a side note smitty you are right no ethanol free in MA, but here is a link that list stations in all states that do have ethanol free http://pure-gas.org/


have a great rest of the weekend, Eric

Last time I checked 91 octane ethanol-free gasoline was $4.15 per gallon in St. Albans, VT. I saw some loggers filling cans with it...the chain saws must love it.

Another option: http://www.vpracingfuels.com/racing-fuel Check out their C9 product.

They have pre-mix and a bunch of ethanol free fuels available. I used to run C12 in my Camaro...108 octane leaded gasoline.

Hi all, it's a nice sunny morning in the mid 30's. A large mug of Chock Full O' Nuts steaming away in front of me. Pretty soon I'll have to get up off my butt and work on cleaning my house.

This week coming up is going to be awful. Tomorrow morning, bright and snarly, I have to be at Beth Israel Hospital for what they are calling an "extended stay". What that means? I really don't know. After I get there, I have ANOTHER heart cath, that makes four since last October. Then I go to ICU with an IV in my neck for about a week or so. After that, I don't know. The doctor was saying that I may come home with a "permanent" IV port and an IV pump. If that happens, I'll have to have a visiting nurse come every day. :oops:

I bought a new laptop to bring with me but now, I'm not sure I'll be able to keep it there. Sure would be nice to be able to keep in touch. If I can't keep it I'll probably go through coal dust withdrawal :( .

Figures, that this is the hospital that the bomber was brought. Same building!!! :x . Now I'll have to worry about some whackjob trying to support him by trying to blow up the hospital... :(
