If you pulled codes P1124/1126 its a bad air/oil seperator 90% of the time. Trust me and thousands of other Boxster owners,ask us how we know...

How about you all?

I'm gonna be messing with my new plasma tonight. My old one(6 months) has been giving me some problems,speaker cut out and then build the volume back up and there is a slight humming from the panel,so back to the store it goes. I lucked out,its no longer made so I get a new model. Football on Sunday morning w/ a integrated HD tuner!

Mrs Grizzly is going on a hot air balloon weekend with her friends, so I'm a bachelor. I can either check out a huge local car show on Saturday and a PCA autocross on Sunday, or I can paint the porch...hmmmmmm.

Oh yeah, GO EAGLES!

Tomorrow, my fiance and I are going to a "Coffee Run" organized by the PCA CT region. Couple hours of driving through the northwest CT foliage in a group of 20-30 Porsches followed by a lunch together. Weather: sunny but crisp (high of 52). Should be fun. Then more driving for the rest of the weekend.

I am sitting at my office this beautiful cool fall morning waiting for my rims to arrive from the Fedex man. It appears they will attempt a delivery to an office today.

While I am waiting, I will do a quick, 10% water change on this beast:

Randall, does the aquarium sell a "Finding Nemo Starter Kit"? A thai restaurant that I frequent has the same fish you do.

I have a mated pair of "nemos".... Fascinating fish, the clown.

It is born with the genetics to develop into a male or female as it matures and sees a need for one or the other. Moreover, it can change its sex to further the species if need be.

I put five 1 inch juveniles in my tank three years ago. The dominanant clown killed 3 by scaring them and badgering them when food was offered to the tank inhabitants, leaving one to be the mate. The dominant clown always becomes the larger female.

I hope to see them spawn this year. They're certainly old enough for it, but my tank parameters are less than ideal at times and that can mess up their ability to reproduce.

Of course, when the eggs hatch at 2 am one morning, I will be home asleep in bed and the fry will be eaten by other fish or get caught in the filtration and die. I ain't losing any sleep to catch tiny clown fish and try to raise them in another tank, that's for sure! I'll leave that to the professionals.

It probably could be done solo, if you are good at deciphering written directions and driving at the same time, but it would be pretty difficult, and definitely not as much fun !

Well, didn't make it to the rally this morning...

My lovely navigator wasn't feeling too well ( did a little partying last night ) and didn't feel like getting up at 6:00 am for the two hour drive to Milwaukee

Oh well, current temp is 47 degrees so it would have been a top-up day anyway

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend !

Nick

Well never thought it could happen but I'm officially DONE driving my Box this weekend (or at least for the next hour ). Just got back from another 200-mile twisties-colors-sun extravanaza in nortwest CT -- this time solo. It was delicios, rejuvenating, meditative, and therapeutic. Met a guy with an orange Mustang GT at a gas station. He says "Great machine." I complimented him back on his -- especially the color. He showed me a local road he enjoys taking -- away from the popular "leaf-peepers" roads. What a blast.

Yes, hope everyone is enjoying their weekends, too.
