TIL 2008 Ford Edges with the 3.5 V6 DOHC 24v have a history of exploding the engine with no warning. Luckily, it wasn't mine.  Grandson is now using the " shoe leather express". sad

TIL that the sister-in-law that my inlaws spent the first part of their Covid adventure with before they came to our place just tested positive for Covid antibodies.  Guess we are all getting tested.

The 3.7 engines do the same thing due to a E36 M3ty water pump design.

TIL why is costs $50 to get my dog's hair cut at the groomers.  Today we decided he had looked like Chewy for long enough and had to be cut.  This realization was encouraged by the phone message at the groomers which was basically, "Don't call us, we'll call you."  It's the first time I've cut my dog myself in probably a decade.  The "haircut" part went OK, but this is an actual picture of me getting ready to cut his nails:

The secret is go have a helper give them applesauce on a spoon while you clip their nails.

The real issue is he has black nails, so you can't tell where the "dead" portion ends and the "live" portion begins.

There is this thing call a rotary nail trimmer for pet nails. Basically a battery powered rotary file. Works great. Used one for years on our toy poodle. Groomer didn't always trim the nails. No worries about the "live" portion, just file down to appropriate length.

TIL (again) that the true friend filter includes who helps with hard projects around your house, not expecting pay.  Makes it easy to appreciate them and pay them more than they think they're worth.  Helps socially awkward people like me show that appreciation too.
