Shut up you wingeing babies !

~ Bill Gates ~
This should be posted in every school or kid's bedroom.
Love him or hate him , he sure hits the nail on the head with this!
Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about
eleven things they did not and will not learn in school.
He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings
created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and
how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2: The world doesn't care about your self-esteem.
The world will expect you to accomplish something
BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school.
You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity.
Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping:
They called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault,
so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring
as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills,
cleaning your clothes and listening to you
talk about how cool you thought you were:
So before you save the rain forest
from the parasites of your parent's generation,
try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers,
but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades
and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer.
*This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters.
You don't get summers off and very few employers
are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF.
(Do that on your own time.)
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life.
In real life, people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds.
Chances are you'll end up working for one.
If you can read this...thank a Teacher.
If you can read this in English...thank a Soldier!
And for life and everything else you have...thank God!
Now....think about this and smile if you agree and please pass this on....
If you don't agree, go stick your head in the SAND and take a DEEP breath.

What a polava ! Jeep saga

In an earlier post I had sent off for the replacement Power steering pump. It arrived after 5 days  but alas it was the wrong one ! It appears to be for the Cherokee and not the Grand Cherokee.
My impatience got the better of me and having determined which of the many different model PSP's is the one for my model and configuration I decided to get one from a Jeep breakers here in the UK.
It arrived with flywheel on and reservoir attached and in theory ready to just bolt on.
All done , turned the engine over and .........a fountain of Power steering fluid from the pump. Maybe that was the reason the jeep was in the Scrapsyard !  bummer.
Sent to Poland and correct one arrived, attached a reservoir ( got several by now lol) and flywheel.
Yesterday I attached it all to the vehicle , filled up the reservoir and hey presto - back on the last  !

Party on !

Nice carved rear

Busy busy busy

Busy few days coming up, gotta do a fluid change on my bike , change the power steering pump on the Jeep ..........and visit relatives too.

Got carried away- in a good way

Stumbled across a thread on the HD Forums whilst looking for something else. 2 hours ago !
It is a really interesting account by DK Custom of Red banks Mississippi.USA step by step postings with loads of useful pics of their SBS Sportster chop project. Taking a 2003 anniversary edition stock Sportster Custom and turning it into a cool hard-tail chop with Jockey shift. The bike has been a project by Kevin at DK , working for whatever hours he can find outside the working business day. Although the bike is now finished the final postings with pics are yet to appear in the next couple of weeks. Definitely worth taking a look here
