New intake for the mustang. The EFI project is tedious but I'm getting close.

Well, all I can say is be careful. And let us know how it goes. It just doesnít seem that sturdy to me.

Tear in plantar fascia. Had plantar fasciitis, got a shot, did a bunch of stretches and then walked a lot more than I should have (all three of which probably contributed to the tear). This goes back to Memorial Day-ish. Podiatrist thought swelling in foot was due to a vein deficiency. Took forever to get appt with vascular doctor around travel schedule. Not vascular-related (which is good). Back to podiatrist. Finally got MRI, which identified the tear.

It's only been 2 days since I got the boot and swelling is already significantly less, so hopeful this isn't more than a month or so of wearing it.

Sorry to hear that. Glad itís getting better.

I have sinus tarsi syndrome which is made better by a nice pair of custom orthotics.

(My only foot problem)

We are recent empty-nesters, and the kid was given a bunch of kitchen item *I* depend upon. Went to season a steak, no salt/pepper grinders. Found some nice Acai wood ones for about $20.
Went to make rice the same meal, guess what was missing? Zojurushi 10-qt on the way, should be here tomorrow.

While browsing, since there wasn't a decent-sized pan to make an omelet, I found these little Japanese-inspired pans to make the tomago, so I got a set in cast iron. Includes a wooden "spatula" just the width of the pan, and a little serving platform. Seasoning the pan first.
