ah, the nuts and bolts of life, some need to loosen, some tightened, which ones are which? or are we too obsessed with the machination.

Hi Lily

I like your thoughts... I think I need to look at some of my nuts and bolts, some might need throwing out

I'm getting too old to have my nuts tightened.

got a few circuits down, so pardon me while i type from the workshop; the circuit box door is open, wires hanging everywhere, oh and i heard someone mumble 'hmmmm that shouldn't be in there' -- should i be worried?

Great sentiment...Really food for thought. The mechinations of things tend to muck up the tool's use....

Hi Lily

Yeah I'm still around.

The correct method for tightening nuts is to tighten them until they strip, then back them off half a turn.

Ya dun well there.

A brutally real question/idea.

All my screws are loose at the moment and bits and pieces are falling off from rust, but there is still a confusing machine inside of me.

Man, i started a new job and it took Dean's reply to bring me back to the land of 'don't be rude and reply to your readers' ..sorry George.. Glad you're still around.

You seem to have the tightening bolts thing down to a fine art George. How'd you come to know so much about that?

Dean, i think everyone has a little confused machine inside of them. I asked this question 3 years ago, and i'm still trying to work out the question. Now Rainer Marie Rilke has a great little piece about 'living the question.' I'll find it and post it up.

Now i will write to Orble and tell ask them pleeeeeeease can they fix the problem that stops us getting notifications of new posts. I'm getting the comments, but not the new posts.

Have a great day my friends.
