I have had pneumonia for over 3 weeks and am just getting over it. With all this shit that has been going on I haven't been able to go out and do anything. Niece was born on the 9th and I haven't gotten to meet her.

I have spent about 2500 on my car this year and haven't even driven it in a month. Can't wait to hear how you like the ITB's though. I have too much other shit on my list before I will consider what to do next for more power.

should be just a tune. i think. i'll likely go through delicioustuning, but holding off on contacting them until i'm actually ready to proceed with doing it..

this is one of the only builds with details--it says they just used ecutek's racerom, everything else being stock

Talk about adding complexity to your build.

Good luck.

Captain's log, stardate 12.

It has been 12 twelve days of isolation in Corona Sector 5. We have been asked not to make contact with the other beings in the sector, maintaining at least a 6 parsec distance.

Most of the crew is handling it well, however, both the divorce and pregnancy rates have increased drastically on board. Most are catching up on hobbies, and binge watching 20th century westerns.

We do have many sick on board. We could sure use more tricorders. The one Bones has is being passed around more than an Orian slave girl.

We are also experiencing a shortage of toilet paper and have resorted to coffee filters and Klingon Talons. Don't ask me how that works. Paper items seem to be the only items the replicator cannot replicate since Spock was bored and took it apart.

To be continued....

Yep, this is the way I "read" those financial advisers.

If they are soo damn smart, why are they working by advising others?

Why aren't they just "retired" sitting back on a yacht in a warm sunny place?
