Anyone else love Chef Gordon Ramsey?

Yes, I get addicted to those shows. My lady and I enjoy watching Masterchef. Since she was out of town, I wasn't allowed to watch it this week without her. :p

It's not often we get clear night skies in Pittsburgh, so I thought this was a cool shot.
Yes, indeed. I've always wanted to take a picture like that but my camera only has a max shutter time of 30 seconds (live in a relatively dark location). What kind of camera did you use if I may ask?

I use a Canon Rebel T2i with a Tamron lens. I have an optional remote shutter release, so you can take long-exposure photos without having to touch the camera (and risk blurring the shot). Once you learn the controls, it's a very cool hobby.

So today at work I had the pleasure to replace the front axle in a craftsman lawn tractor. Idk what the owner did but they f--ed it up good.

It also had the factory oil in it, it's a 2001, so that's 12 years on 46 ounces of oil. The oil was blue(bearings), green(what gives away that it's factory oil, the factory oil has zinc(green) in it to help the engine break in, brown(water) and black(dirty oil). It rod knocks like CRAZY. I ran it for 10 seconds to make sure it would run. Then turned it off and pushed it to the garage door. It can blow up in the idiots lawn lol.

I have no idea, I'm kind of leaning towards backed into it in the garage. That motor is just waiting for a hot day and a high load to throw a rod.

Power passenger seat was not exclusive to the Centennial. I have it in my Bull.
