from prev thred, MT, "Definitely keeps you intimately knowledgeable about the machine." That is one of the nice benefits I get helping out with the inspection. I may not enjoy it like you, but I recognize the value.

Another Bob, owning an airplane is like coming to a fork in the road, and taking it. Either journey will open some doors and close others. For two days out of the year I grit my teeth, brave bruises, cuts, and aches, to have the opportunity to fly the other 363 days. I started with an ultralight and that was fun. I could do all the work and be my own mechanic and inspector. Then I moved up to a Cessna 150. I could change the oil and put air in the tires. Otherwise my job was to write the check to the mechanic. Finally I bought the RV6 and could do anything except the annual inspection because I was not the original builder. I don't see it in me to build my own airplane. I tried but realized quickly I did not have the proper space (at least a two car heated garage), and that I like flying more than wrenching.

MT, isn't it great to connect with a good mechanic? I've been blessed to have mechanics I trust and enjoy working with. I couldn't do what you do because I have a disdain for wrenching that encourages me not see things I don't want to see, and overall not always knowing what to look for. I need the extra eyeballs. That doesn't stop me from suggesting exploring opportunities to streamline the inspection, such as greasing the mains every two years instead of annually (approved). Taking off the floor panels and rear bulkhead; nixed. I have learned which panels don't have to come completely off, such as the underside wing root fairing, which can be inspected without having to remove the upper screws. My biggest complaint revolves around the original builder's decision to use Rivnuts for the floor panels and wheel pants in place of plate nuts. Aaarrrggghhh!!!! I have stripped about a dozen in 17 years and replacing or fixing them is a royal PITA. Friends should never let friends use Rivnuts on airplanes!

I'm finally on real time. Sweet dreams, jim nj. Thanks for sharing some of your childhood experiences. I don't know anyone famous, or even someone who knows someone famous, so it's hard for me to imagine the richness of your youth as you see the folks you knew then live out their cultural destiny. I also appreciate your financial links. I don't usually understand the details but I like to think if I squint I can see the overall picture, even if somewhat blurred. Sounds like our economy isn't optimum but it's the best game in town. I spent yesterday at the airport assisting with my airplane's annual inspection. I get to do the unglamourous jobs like removing the floor panels and various fairings and inspection panels, so that my inspector can do his thing and sign Athena's log books. I have plenty of body aches, a few bruises, and one bloody gash for my effort. It'll take a few days to get the grease and gunk off my hands. Greasing the main gear wheel bearings will do that. And I'm not done. Athena got signed off for another year and I got her mostly back together. I will hopefully finish up today. It's 25F right now but suppose to warm up to 50F by noonish. It was about 40F yesterday and the hangar is unheated. The only thing I hate more than working in the cold is working in the heat. October is usually a good time to do this but this year we're getting a hefty dose of Gore Effect Glowball Warming.

Good morning, jim nj. I'm still catching up from last night so I'm a few hours behind you. I did a quick time jump when I saw Clarice's Pieces.

Thank you, Clarice, for packaging up, not just a week, but an entire season of Democrat foofaraw in one post. I had to google "Miss Havisham", cultural philistine that I am, and was pleased to learn there is an archetype guiding Clinton to earnestly fulfill her life imitates art potential.

Willow'd: Porchlight, thanks for leeks recipe suggestions on the previous thread. I plan to try the braised leeks with thyme as soon as I get some thyme. I got leeks by accident. I intended to buy scallions. I bought this bunch that looked like scallions. I knew something was amiss when I tried to eat one of the green stalks a month later. Then I read the label. I also learned I should have spread them out rather than planted in clumps. Live and learn. Next Spring I will try leeks again and follow the planting instructions. I also make leeks stock yesterday that looks promising. Put the greens in a stock pot with some water, bring to boil, and simmer for 3 hours. Whatever dirt survived the washing hopefully got sterilized while simmering. I"m looking forward to trying next time I need to reanimate some rice or millet.

Extraneous, how is the Android tablet with Yandex working out as a viable JOM platform? Do you have any recommendations for a particular economical Android device? A couple months ago I bought a compact and inexpensive ($215) Dell Windoze 10 PC that does an okay job with 4 GB memory and 1366x768 display. The 32 GB SDD isn't large enough handle Windoze updates, so I will probably need to replace it. I will also probably upgrade to 8 GB memory. In addition, even a small PC isn't as convenient as my iPad mini when reading JOM in bed. I appreciate any suggestions and your perspective. I'm off now to deal with the leeks I harvested yesterday. Not sure exactly what to do with them after cutting off the tops and bottoms, and washing off the dirt. I would appreciate any recipe suggestions. I also read that you can make stock from the green tops. That sounds like a good idea but first I have to learn how.
