I'm here! Been awfully busy at work the past 2+ weeks (we got hacked, installed new CRM computer system, 2nd website to get up and running, starting a blog for work) and waiting to get my engine to the house and get my wife's head/cam swap done before I can tear into the Corvette full-throttle.

On a sad note my wife lost her cousin yesterday afternoon. So that's thrown a monkey wrench into everyone's lives right now. He was only 37 and leaves two boys. The oldest is getting his El Camino though and we're all looking forward to getting it up to snuff for li'l Danny.

later,

Lee

37 is too young to go. It makes it worse when kids are involved too.

Sure does...they are 13 and 10. Just a real shame. His mom (my Aunt Sandy) found him in his bed, still warm, but already gone. It was a rough day yesterday and lots of heavy hearts. My Uncle Danny is just beside himself.

WORK, WORK, WORK!! I don't know about around you guys but here it seems like the dam has finally busted. We are busier than we have been in four years. Can't hire qualified electricians fast enough. Key word: "QUALIFIED"

Not being a member, I just laid low for awhile, checked in periodically, and nothin was going on, nothing at all entertaining, I don't want to be imposing since I am not a member, but when you guys get all cranked up, it's tough to find anything more entertaining..... 300 channels and nothing on. Work here finally got busy, not like 4 years ago, but I'm on the road every day making a few bucks again, so that helps. Diagnosed Mom with cancer in December, been running around for treatments for that, she has a good prognosis, surgery got what was "visible", and is starting to get back to feeling good after first chemo. Lots going on, got some guys from around lake ontario coming down to pick thru my leftover mustang parts to see if I can thin some stuff out. Yeah, it's been dead on here, but we all get the winter blahs (YEP) and sometimes life just gets in the way. Some sun and warm temps would help a lot here!

I think we have to FACE it. FACEBOOK has killed the forum. Not just ours but almost all forums are slow or taken down all together. It's a shame. Between FB and the new cell phones the forum won't work. Most new cells have issues with forums too Sad

I'm on FB but it's nothing like a forum. The forum has done well for many years. I just can't get anyone to talk on the forum now. It is really a burden trying to get everyone involved. I have tried. I even paste the forum links on FB at times. No one has time and they post everything they do on FB now. It stinks. Trust me I have been fighting this for over a year now. Many people still get on here they just don't post anything for whatever reason. Sad

My business has picked up, and is the main reason I haven't been on- not that I need to explain... but I have started to facebook, but I do not post my project progress there. I don't have much to post anyway. My facebook account was started by someone else who felt I should "come and play", but it's not as fun as the forum, in my opinion. I can see where it would take away from the forum, but I really prefer my "dumb phone". Way too much info possible to lose and destroy when using a "smart phone." I have had trouble in the past posting pics, so that has soured me a bit, but this is a great forum- hope it keeps going. Now that I know it's getting extinct-er, I will see about putting some more totally useless information on it.

Sometimes I wonder if we still have enough traffic going to keep the forum for free. I still try to get on a couple times a day to do my part.

With no garage and crazy rain weather and crazier work schedule, it always seems like when I have a few hours to mess with something it's pouring down rain.

Boys and I tested in Taekwondo on May 31st. Mid test toward my 2nd degree Black Belt. Oldest son got his navy. Puts him as a black belt in training. Means he can test for his black belt (if ready) in nine months. Younger son one behind his brother. Was a big test for the masters in our school. 2 testing for their 6th, 2 testing for their 7th. All passed. Good test. I'll post a couple pics in a few.

We've also heard from people that they only get on the net via a mobile device. When they get on our site looks completely different and they have no idea how to get around and can't see any pics.

That would be the mobile version of our site. I hate mobile versions.

I made a how to thread to switch back to the classic version if you're on smart phone or tablet.
