Good evening Ruby. How goes all in your world?
Having some thoughts about my bird now. She doesn't move around like she has, not really eating either. Makes me think ...
Doing much better thanks. I still miss my birdie but I know he's in a better place now

It could be something simple that's interfering with her appetite. Our Grey also doesn't have much of an appetite, but she's in a new cage and we think it's maybe just stress and fear of the unknown. She's healthy and happy otherwise so we don't think it's serious

Has anything changed that could cause her distress? Birds can be funny with new things

Bad news on the Vulcan front. Looks like it'll be a dummy.
I feel like one too after thinking we could get away with it.
Can you believe I can't find blueprints for it?
Saw some for the Hawker Hurricane cannon though.

Could very well be the weather. Sounds hectic!

Either way, hope she gets back to being her old self soon ((hugs)) I know how distressing it can be when our pets aren't well

Yeah I thought that was a....ummmmm Ya know, a no no. ATF and assorted other federal LEO's might have a problem with a private citizen being WAY better armed than they are.
Try for a mini gun. I know people have those.....Rounds are easier to come by too.

It's 4 degrees right now and we're getting a foot of snow or so tomorrow.
Let it snow, let it snow let it snow....
Those of you down south watch out for that ice storm!!!!

Hey ya'll,
I'd like to address you folks if you don't mind. I'd just like to say thank you for your hospitality. It seems too often imo that human kindness and acceptance are a rare find these days ...especially in the halls of topix. Visiting this thread is like opening a window. I just wanted you to know that you are appreciated.

Lazy day today. It's almost 2pm and I don't have anything to do, so here begins the countdown to the end of the day.*Sigh...*

Good news is, I got my car back from the mechanics yesterday. But it's still not right :(

It makes a very strange sound while driving and its revs are so low that it keeps stalling when the engine is cold. It wasn't this bad before. I don't know why it's got all these issues now that they've worked on it? Pisses me off, because after about 2 weeks of being in their workshop, you'd think they fixed every little thing they possibly could, but noooo. And they charged us a shitload of money - nearly as much as we bought the car for! I'm not very happy about it not being perfect, or near perfect, but my parents think I'm overreacting. I got frustrated this morning because just driving down the driveway to the gate, I had to restart the engine almost 4 times! And another time just before I left, after I closed the gate! Dad said he'll try to set the revs a bit higher. I don't know why they had to go and adjust it in the first place - my car was fine with idling before they worked on it!

Glad to hear that you're feeling welcome here in the pub. We're like one big happy family. I can't imagine my life without YOVP, lol

If it's got fuel injection Ruby try adding a bottle of injector cleaner to it. That sometimes helps...
Good morning Hick up.
Why thank you. There are a few threads like this here on Topix. It is a nice change from the contentious ones. Believe me, I've seen some of the worst Topix has to offer. I started it because I got sick of the arguing, and that wasn't what I was looking for when I started posting. I just wanted somewhere I could have some adult conversation while I was laid up. It's been a fun ride for the most part so far. You're always welcome here.

Nope, it's not fuel injection. Not as far as I know anyway

The mechanics said something about the low revs when idling while the engine is cold. They mentioned it has an electric choke, and the choke doesn't work properly anymore... So don't know, maybe the "damage" is permanent? I just feel like crying because I'm tired of things not working right

The funny thing is, when the Navy brought the Tomcat over they forgot to remove the guns.
Three weeks later they were all over the place. Never saw so many federal types outside an office.
Brought their own mechanics too. sorry no cameras allowed.
