    Going well, they’re keeping me busy and entertained. They got me supervising a sub contractor today & tomorrow for one of our clients and I’m basically the face of the company.

    Found an injector with no measurable impedance, hopefully the root of my Expy problems.... had to order one from WALMART, because Amazon in its stupidity (?) falsely (?) believes that the state of CA in its infinite wisdom (?) bans the sale/purchase of Motorcraft injectors (??????????)..... and all the other vendors just don't seem to bother stocking them anymore

    Then had to break into the trunk of my BMW that I hadnt driven for a while, since I managed to lock it after removing the battery for recharging ---- and apparently grounded the (+) terminal on the chassis floor, making it unjumpable.... oh and keyholes we dont need no stinkin keyholes, at least not for post-2009 models....

    ...oh well pleasant surprise, BMW trunks are ***ridiculously*** easy to break into. Still somehow managed to destroy the latch opening it, although directions suggested it'd be OK. Tore into it and even managed to get it sorta-working, but surprise-surprise....turns out the latch/lock/motor assembly costs $45. Screw that I'd rather mount a new one then, not worth the hassle of worrying about redneck engineered super glue and duct tape solutions causing more misadventures in future

    Meanwhile, I can live a couple days with a sedan whose trunk doesnt lock

    Sitting at a red turn arrow today, some jackass in front of me rolled backwards into me. Then he ran the arrow. I was too dumbfounded by what just happened to even care.

    No damage done.

    Many years I had some lady back into me while attempting to leave a parking lot. She pulled out, but didn't check for oncoming traffic until she was halfway out. She then threw it into reverse to back out of the street without looking behind her.

    The worst feeling in the world when you can't do anything about it.
