Seems to be a lot of that going around.

Luckily when they redesigned the 250 in 2008, they used the same carbs as the 88-2007 models.  So the carbs are the same.

Right around when I was 12 or 13 I discovered the base line of songs. One of those first songs that really struck home was "Aquarious/Let the Sun Shine in" by the 5th Dimension. Another was Three Dog Night's "Black and White". Listen to those songs especially the second half of the 5th Dimension song and see what I mean.

Have a cookie.  You'll feel better.

I went to BJ's club last night to buy disposable shavers.  I looked at their three blade brand and then at Schick.  Schick had the made in USA brand.  BJ's brand had just a distributed by sentence.  I know when I see that it's a made in China deal.  Same number of shavers as Schick.  Schick was 10 dollars higher.  I went with Schick.  Used one of them this morning and it was superb gliding over my three day stubble (work out of the house so I don't handsome up every day).

Bought a new mattress today. The old one was only a year old, but didn't work for me. I put the old one on CL for free and had four replies within 30 minutes. Free really works. If I asked a hundred bucks for it (paid $900.00) it would never go.

208 miles of riding today over in Pensylvania.  :)
 
I really envy you guys that can ignore the bike's need to be ridden, and just put them away during the cold months.  ::)

Driving to a client the other day on 301 south through Camp AP Hill in VA..  I saw a very large eagle flying above the left hand lane about 2/3 up to the top of the tree line.  As I passed by and under it I said to myself "This is going to be a wonderful day!".  The sky was blue as well.  Also, thought the eagle should have been in the right hand lane flying as slow as it was, but I think it was cruising for an easy snack (dead deer).

Jim's mention of the eagle reminded me of something that happened last year. My brother, my wife, and I took a week long vacation in snowmobile country up in northern Wisconsin. This was in January. We were out on a great groomed trail, my brother in the lead, me next, and my wife last. The trail was lined by trees and it was almost like being in a tunnel becasue of the way the trees hung over the trail, it was beautiful. All of a sudden a bald eagle flew up from behind me and started pacing my brother. The eagle was flying ~3 feet above my bro's head and matched his speed. The eagle did this for 10 mins or so. It was amazing to watch and my bro didn't even know that he was there! All of a sudden the eagle accelerated, pulled up, and landed in one of the trees. My bro saw him at that point but had no idea that the eagle was right above him for so long.
