    Power washers must be a hot ticket item. My former neighbor (a painter), had one stolen out of his trailer a couple of years ago. They broke the lock and carted it off. Nothing else was touched. Another neighbor across the street also had one stolen, but his was just out sitting on his car port under a cover.

    Weird, because I kept a portable air compressor on my car port for years (before I built the garage) tucked under my radial arm saw.... also on the car port. The only thing I've had taken was a 6-pack of MGD I left sitting out one winter for a couple of hours while I was doing other things.

    Guess I've been lucky.

    The craziest power washer theft I heard was a guy told me he was using 200' of hose on the back of a town home complex when his machine stopped. He leisurely walled back to the front of the unit to see two guys loading his machine into a truck. They just cut the houses and ran!

    Go Big Red! Honda does seem to be doing well so far. Also, Go Team Mini Cooper! Can't believe Mini Coopers are running 2nd in the Dakar!

    Haven't heard a peep, but make a suggestion. Find out we have some picky eaters around here so I'm game for just about anything.

    No suggestions, however, I have a pre-op appointment at Johnston Willis at 1:00 so I need to be there by then. Anything on that side of town would be good.

    Actually, I do have suggestion:

    ^ I think it's "...on the 8s".

    Local weather at 8, 18, 28, 38, 48, and 58 minutes after the hour.

    Now that the excitement of Christmas and New Year's is past, and your cubicle farmers are back at work, doesn't it suck to not have anything to look forward to?

    I'd like to fill that gap in your life.

    How about we plan on a January central Virginia ADV party?

    I am offering to host an ADV party to help get us all thru the winter doldrums.

    Location: our 7,000 sq ft luxury warehouse in downtown Petersburg.

    Date: a Saturday, and I'd like to suggest the 25th of January.

    Time: from 4 pm onward, with floor accommodations offered for those traveling long distances.

    Style: Potluck buffet for those who can. Donations accepted for those who can't cook. Teresa and I can lay out a nice spread if necessary.

    Cost of admission: Watching my TAT movie from Joe's and my summer trip. But for those who have endured it already (Poor Man's 500 attendees), you can shoot pool and rock out in the next room with no penalty at all.....

    Disclaimer: I'd actually prefer if this was a 4-wheel event. No need to compare our manhoods by trying to ride to an event in January where good times and adult beverages are to be had.

    Also this would be open to any ADV inmate who wants to come. Charlottesville, VA Beach, Catherders, etc are welcome to come.

    What do you think? Any takers? What else are you going to be doing on a Saturday in late January?

    Post up if you think this is a good idea and you think you could make it.

    The ONLY original part on those Mini's are the "Mini" emblems! :lol3 Still pretty cool!

    Those Honda 450's already have headlights! Could we see a street legal version for '15?

    My 450X has a headlight, and as soon as I install the Baja Kit it will be street legal. Already have the title and registration and plate. Want to come to WV and try it? Might make your give up the orange kool-aid. :freaky

    EDIT: Actually, I'm out for the RTE. I've been reminded I'm not supposed to eat or drink anything past midnight prior to my pre-op testing at noon on Friday.

    Sucks, but that's the way it is. :cry

    Jeff, the party sounds like a good idea. Won't be sure if I can make it until very close because I have a project planner that doesn't share details or consult subject matter experts when putting together plans.

    Great idea! Great host! Since you prefer a four wheeled event it makes it easy to leave the bike/girlfriend at home. Around here we call my bike "the Mistress". I, and hopefully the wife as well, should be able to make it. Thanks Jeff!

    Today I am out of work and not with the flu. Found a burst pipe in the crawl space last night just before midnight. I woke the wife to tell her so she could plan on going to her mom's to shower and she told me she heard a POP the night before. (Bless her heart) It must have leaked for about 24 hours. Heading to HD to get a sump pump or shop vac now as well as copper elbows, tubing, torch, etc.. (Slow start this morning after waking up with a migraine) The troubling part is that the electricity is out in the same part of the house where the pipe burst, but none of the breakers are tripped. I guess I will kill all of the power before taking a dip.

    Guy, good luck with your pre-op and your upcoming procedure. I hope all goes well.
