When I was a kid in Yonkers, NY my father had a friend with a Jag. He always said that it was garage kept. " In my mechanics garage". But I do love the styling of the
"E" Jags.

With some regret I decided to take the trees down. I was concerned about some of them from a safety standpoint, as the weather systems seem to be more severe every season.

Five loads of saw logs and lots of wood for the furnace.

I will start with a question about mature trees on my campsite which I own. Do I cut the trees down and solve the leaves, needles, gum problem, or do I live with this inconvenience to maintain the shade from an average of a month of sun/heat every year.
It takes a long time to grow a mature tree. Dave

I'm more worried about what he may have lost in picture #7.

Risk of robot uprising wiping out human race.

You are concerned about a minor leak????
As if weather and gas prices were not enough to worry about.
Now we have this.

Risk of robot uprising wiping out human race to be studied.


BBC News - Risk of robot uprising wiping out human race to be studied


I think that my strategy to survive this threat will be to keep moving from c/g to c/g. A moving target is always harder to eliminate. (just look at the deficit!)

Just wear your tin foil hat and hang close to your airstream, you'll blend right in with the robots. If questioned, just tell them you know Mitt Romney.

Do robots have oil types like humans have blood types?

Can we drain them to stop importing oil?

Are we allowed to marry a robot?

Best Jag ever made was an XK-140; after that they had lots and lots of electrical and cooling problems, especially the XKE.

I know I can't really get back "on topic" -- but why "wear your tin foil hat" if you're in your Airstream? Seems redundant...

The day science creates a robot member of the opposite sex that will do all those little things my lady does, but also actually listens to what I am saying and asking, I will stand in an all night lineup on Black Friday morning to make that purchase. The only trap might be - - - if you got her on sale can you take her back if she doesn't work out? So many of these 'once in a lifetime' deals are "ONE OF A KIND --NO RETURN"

The tin foil hat, as tradition indicates for all hats*, is for outdoor use only.

*Baseball caps (or any other hat for that matter) at the dinner table is one of my pet peeves.

How can we make this technology work on a smaller scale for a RV?
Could it be integrated to work as a transmission brake maybe via a PTO shaft?

Get Witch Quick

I thought this was going to be a 'GET WITCH QUICK' opportunity, but my requests for inclusion on the gravy train have not been answered.

Any interested investors?

Certainly any robot I would marry would be programmed to like it when I wear a hat at any meal in a restaurant. But my wife doesn't mind anyway, so I'm not about to replace her. I knew someone who got very upset when anyone combed their hair in public, but after you take the hat off, you have to comb your hair.
