Inclination Injection

Wednesday 7 February 2018

Brain stepped out for a pint of milk Sunday, so didn't send last effort until Tuesday. This not due age as attention span and memory have actually improved over last decade from that of two-year old to three. OK fine, early three.

Kubota engine on Panda generator recalcitrance was due, apparently, to bad injector plug. This due, probably, to light loading of motor while charging batteries. This due, obviously, to not operating air conditioning (the only heavy load available) while genset is running. This due, regrettably, to a tincture of Calvinist asceticism inculcated by mum who grew up during Great Depression. When in doubt, blame all moral failures on someone or something else. Still hold her responsible for inability to leave food on a plate even when full to gills and close to exploding. By the way, she has no means to defend herself having departed in 2009 after a very long and full life. Awaiting word on completion of injector rebuild to nominal specs at which point unit will, no doubt, purr like a kitten. Inspection and service of Yanmar propulsion engine, which currently purrs as referenced, will follow. If it ain't broke???

Visit to dental torturist yesterday afternoon was, except for the bill, a very pleasant experience, itself a very unusual experience, because removal of tartar buildup (minimal even after particularly lengthy gap since last cleaning) was completely painless. This was not due to drugs or fear-induced catalepsy, but rather to new technique of firing calcium carbonate onto enamel. Sand blasting is way better than the tuning fork from hell. Consult your least sadistic dentist for details.

Medium fast start last week to boat renovation has stuttered to a more leisurely pace. Consider it blamed on biblical downpours and an uncommon cold (see above reference to moral failures). Having begun to feel better after off-loading virus to Jan however, expect to utilized Newton's first law of motion to overcome current inertia. Nascent search for appropriate force will, of course, be dependent upon significant improvement in attitude and weather. You see the problem, right?
