1 for 2

So...yard tractor's front tires keep going flat.
This is not abnormal for those cheap turf tires lawn equipment comes with to do this.
They dry rot and crack and since they are only 2 ply, they leak..
There is nothing wrong with the tread or the tire really, for the speeds and PSI they operate on, no need to replace tire just put in a tube.
So I got some tubes, spend most of the day trying to wrangle the damn thing into the tire. I don't have the correct tools of course and nothing about the procedure went well.
6 hours later, i now have 2 inner tubes with screw driver puncture holes and I gave up...The yard is a mess...would not matter anyway since we are flat broke as always and there is no gas in the tank.

So I moved on to a project I have been working on, fixing up an AV signal processor/surround sound amp that a friend gave me.
We can't have new things, only old shit and hand-me-downs since life is determined to shit on us at every turn.

I enjoy fixing things...It's hard without the proper tools.
It seems I did manage to replace the AMP chips without breaking anything by using not the best or correct tools.
I don't have a full set of spare speakers lying around to really give the amp a 'burn in' test so if it fails, i'm sure it will do so after I have spend a ton of hours re-doing the AV rack in the living room.
I will be adding those two hand-me-down Yamaha's to the current speakers, most of which are part of the 5.1 system I bought like 25 years ago, to bring the thing up to 7.1

As you can see, I have my helper getting in the way the entire time.

This is my first attempt at blogging and replaces my original web site that has been online since...a long time ago. If you came looking for The Dragon BathHouse and Cafe, this is it's replacement. There will be lots do do here and if you are not carefull you will learn all about me. I might learn about me as well, along with metting and/or learning about you and that's the whole point isn't it ?
