If it was somebody I knocked up, I'd consider it. Outside of that I'd find it more than a little creepy.

It would seem creepy if it was slave women being paid in rice. I don't know for sure but I'm guessing/hoping that's not the case.

Ditch the rings.

You should have come and watched the rugby. I made breakfast, complete with proper beans and everything.





Still full.

*burp*

And I just removed the carburettors from my friends KZ650. God I hope I can get this thing finished before spring really starts. I don't really want it around any more. All I have to do now is cure a nasty stumble that happens when you open the throttle and it's done. Except one carb has a stuck air screw.

Should be able to drill that out. Then I'm hoping a size bigger on the pilots and an adjustment of the airscrews will sort it, and it's outa here.

I'd only want it if I could do the milking myself.

Dang that looks tasty!

I was surprised how easily the rings went in. I haven't worn earrings for a long time. You might be right though.

That wick is relatively new. There's a lever which raises the wick for lighting, and once there is a steady flame you then lower it back down. (It'll smoke too much in the raised position.) Didja try that?

However, Spike ol' buddy ol' pal, I think your heater needs a new wick. It steadfastly refuses to produce an appropriate flame. In fact, will only produce a flame around a about a 3/4" length of the circumference of the burner, and about 0.27652 BTUs of heat as a result. I'm afraid I won't be able to fit a new wick this weekend, but maybe in a few weeks time between travels.

I did. Despite being an injuneer I even thoroughly read the destructions.

Maybe I didn't leave it raised long enough?

Well, I won't be hasty about it. I'll give it another go when I get back from my next round of travels.
