BOOM. No, that wasn't fireworks. That was my head exploding.

I'm safe because she's not in today. Maybe she'll take the rest of my career off....

Small engines, especially the Briggs-Stratton on my small rototiller.

I only need to use the tiller a couple of times a year, but each session turns into major frustration because it won't start without a hour or two of futszing about with "quick start" ether spray and help from grandson.

A couple of months ago I bought a new mower with B-S motor and so far it is starting easily. But I am wary that by the end of the summer the contagion from the tiller will have spread.

Grrrrr....

You're even farther way! The reunion is in Hobart Indiana.

How far away from Grand Rapids are you? I may end up going with him instead.

Bottle of Pop, Big Banana,
We're from Hobart, Indiana
That's a lie, that's a bluff
We're from Michigan and we're tough

I picked up a 10lb butt roast today. Frozen, after I thawed it, was 2 pieces. Looks like when they cut first time wasn't 10 lbs, so they wacked off more. Fucking hell. I told the ah that I wanted one to set on smoker with fat side up. After I return the small bit Tuesday, they might need to dial 911

THIS

If you use something gas powered sporadically, you need to stabilize the fuel, or it will gum up your jets and stuff. Sounds like the rototiller issue.

I had issues with my chainsaw, weedeater and leaf blower until I learned about that stuff there.

Thanks LJ. I've used stabilizers over the winter, just not that brand.
I'll try it, but I'm a little leary of anything with B&S on it.

I just found out that one of the companies I was hoping to go through for our business, is no longer there/never was, or something like that. I placed a very large order ($982.00) a month ago, and about 10 days ago started to get very worried when I was still not given a tracking number, and my order was still not here. I have contacted Western Union, and the buggers have taken my money, but will not answer any emails sent to them. I have threatened contacting the police, but I doubt I will get anywhere.
My hubby just got laid off, so having $1000 go missing freaking hurts! Money or product... either way I would have been happy. Not only is it $1000 of my money, I had sold a few of the items and now owe the people product, or money as well. That was how I had $1000 to spend in the first place. BAH.
So now I have to contact the fraud department of Western Union, who by the way states its my fault, because they say in fine print not to send money to anyone that you don't know personally. I also have a guy in China threaten them in Chinese, and after he did, the website went away completely! So now I have to contact the Chinese/Canadian consollate (sp) and cross my fingers someone can help us get the products or our money back.
