(Almost) Firey End
Thankfully I opened the scooter up before buying parts.
The motor started making a grinding noise halfway through my 1-mile journey home. Just before I got home it smelled like the proverbial "magic-blue-smoke" and ground to a halt.
I opened up the bottom cover and found this melted mess.
***My question is***
Should I just get a new motor and some new wires and go for the repair? Or should I have to worry about the speed controller and other things?
(More details)
The scooter had been moded about a year ago to remove top speed limit in sport mode and set the start speed to zero. Worked great for months (more than a year) even in the unpredictable new england weather. More than a year later, I noticed the rear tire getting low and making a sort of wobble, so I tried to add some air. The needle valve was too short for my air pump so I removed the motor cover to see if that would give my air pump enough space... no joy. I put the cover back on and this grinding sound started within almost the next day. The following day it ground to halt.

2023.03.25 01:15 JingleWriter1 Got a quote for a new HVAC system - is it good?

In the SOCAL area, got a quote for a Bosch AC system replacement. Below is the quote - looking for input on whether this is a good price given the geographic location of just outside of LA?
They said the duct work bit is optional / up to us - they'd recommend it given the age (21 years - AC and duct is original to the home) but not that it's in bad shape now either ...
Finally - I thought the Bosch systems required their own thermostats, but company noted the Honeywell thermostats we have would work fine with it?
Thanks so much !

2023.03.25 01:04 Chronos-X4 The Mismeasure of (Hu)Man

Originally written for HFY.
From the War Diaries of Xelik Am'Dussias, former Scientist of the Lukonian Empire, translated from Standard Basic into English by Dr. Geraldine Wilcox, PhD...
Humans. I believe the term and the species attached to it need no introduction. They really weren't much to look at over one-hundred cycles ago, when they achieved FTL travel and carved a modest niche for themselves amongst the galactic community at the time. Nobody paid much attention to them, as they were just another newly discovered sentient race graciously invited to join our ever expanding Federation... we were gravely mistaken.
Humans are bipedal mammalians evolved from apes. They have no claws, distill no venom or poison, their physical strength is middling bordering on average at best, and their lifespans are pitifully short compared to most other races. Given the right conditions, an average human can live over ninety standard Terran years. A handful among them have lived to see their hundredth year (fewer still have lived beyond that), but these are exceptions rather than the norm. Moreover, most humans are hopelessly tired and infirm by the time they reach old age. Several among them suffer from a degenerative disease wherein their brain gradually shrivels up and dies, leaving the patient as a barely recognizable husk of their former self. I believe their medics call it "Alzheimer's"... but I digress.
As I approach the one-thousand and twelfth year of my life, I've come to realize I've been gravely mistaken about a great many things. However, grievous as those mistakes were, none troubles me more than the one I made regarding humans. Now that I think about it, it was only fitting a human would show me the error of my ways, all while not having the foggiest idea of what he'd done.
I was stationed on Terra, the humans' homeworld, some twenty cycles ago. My race, the Ailurans, ever proud of our strength and battle prowess, sought to expand our territories beyond the so-called pittance the Galactic Federation originally allotted us. Therefore, our leaders, in their infinite wisdom, decided to take Terra for themselves.
This wasn't some spur-of-the-moment thing, either. We'd been sending ambassadors, exchange students, and countless others to conduct spywork on our behalf. We infiltrated the highest ranking positions of human leadership, gathered data as we prepared for that glorious day where we would stab them in the back, to borrow a Terran idiom. We took every advantage we could get over our hosts. Not that it was particularly difficult, either. They revealed a little too much about themselves, their species, their blood-soaked history...
Our quarry was basically doing our job for us. So much the better...
The day finally came. As per our strategists' estimations, we sent a fleet of about a hundred-thousand ships to invade Terra. Their weaponry being primitive compared to ours, we envisioned an easy victory, to say the least. Gods above, how quickly we were proven wrong.
The moment our ships entered Terran space, they were disabled by some sort of "magnetic" waves, to quote one of their scientists. In a matter of microseconds, the newest, most powerful warships of the Grand Lukonian Armada were rendered inert, useless, as dead as our revered ancestors.
We next received a transmission from their main outpost. I expected them to use English or any of the numberless languages Terrans speak. My fur stood on end when the speaker, a dark-skinned male, addressed us in crisp Thelousian.
"{Greetings, dear friends. What brings you to our doorstep on such a fine day?}."
I growled out loud. The cheek of that oversized ape! I was about to speak, but the human cut me off.
"{We've known about your little scheme for well over a century. Turns out you cat folk become quite chatty after a coupla drinks. Even so, your so-called spies didn't need much coaxing to participate in our little show-and-tell. Once more good old Nepeta cataria has saved the day. Anyhow, my superiors will soon be meeting with you to discuss your unconditional surrender. Have a nice day}."
End transmission. Too little, too late did we realize: just as we had infiltrated the humans and gathered data on them, the humans had done the same to us. Once they caught wind (another Terran expression) of what we were doing, they said nothing, continuing their preparations in utmost secrecy for well over a hundred Terran years. When the day of truth dawned, they only needed to press a couple of buttons to render our best war machines completely useless. The shame, the ignominy of it all...
We were swiftly and unceremoniously apprehended. I was but a breath away from falling down on my laser-sword when a gargantuan human hand forestalled my own. It was him: the human who had spoken to us. He looked bigger in person... much bigger. I'm tall for my species, yet he was only slightly shorter than me.
I vividly recollect what happened next. Once we were taken to their prison camps, I and mine braced ourselves for what was sure to follow: torture, starvation, forced labor, then execution once we had outlived our usefulness... yet none of that happened. The humans saw to it we were treated as guests, with the utmost kindness and consideration, quite remarkable, all things considered. They freely shared their victuals (not that we could partake of most of them, on account of all that sugar and capsaicin). Overtime, we came to emulate their dress, their customs, even their ways of thinking.
I will never forget as long as I live, just as I will never forget him: Anthony Kwesi Martin; the human who gave me back my life. Being what he called a "man of science," Anthony naturally gravitated towards one of his own, as he referred to me. I barely managed to subdue my outrage: that overgrown ape had the audacity to compare himself, his race, to me, to my own! He then did the unthinkable: he showed me around his workshop. Gods above, what a mess! One could barely walk from Point A to Point B without bumping into something or tripping over something. I stifled a chuckle in time. I'd seen cubs' quarters better organized than this.
Searching around the piles, Anthony produced several among his inventions. One in particular caught my eye.
"What is this strange liquid within that flask?"
"Oh, this? Experimental compound, work in progress. I'll tell you about the technical aspects later on, but suffice it to say it's gonna be a lifesaver."
"A lifesaver?"
"We humans have been terrible stewards for our blue planet, to put it mildly. Some of our ancestors were so thoughtless and greedy, I can only wonder how we managed to not wipe out ourselves and Earth in the process. They created materials from a substance called "plastic," which for all intents and purposes is imperishable, indestructible, even. They began to mass-produce and discard these objects without thought of consequence, so we found ourselves drowning in them in a matter of decades. We reached our breaking point some four centuries ago, when temperatures skyrocketed to such extent, we were literally suffocating within our own atmosphere. Also, some kind of pathogen was wreaking havoc at the time. I can't quite recall its name, but I know it started with C. Anyhow, we managed to clean up most of our mess before we reached the point of no return, but there's still a lot of work to be done. That substance I just showed you is an experimental acid. Once it's complete, it will eat through plastic, metal, wood, and other synthetic materials, dissolve them into their most basic compounds to better dispose of them. This is just a cursory explanation, mind you. I'll fill you in on the details after supper."
Thus it began. Rather than cease hostilities, our leaders declared all-out war against humanity. Billions of casualties and hundreds of thousands of ravaged worlds later, it has come to an end. The once mighty Lukonian Empire is now less than a husk of what it used to be. Not that I care: not really... not anymore. I and several others have long since sworn other allegiances.
I have Anthony to thank for that. I learned more during those seventy-odd years with him than in all the centuries before and since. How he would throw himself into his work! How he would explain the most complicated concepts in the most simple and accurate way possible so that pretty much anyone from a child to a sage could comprehend! The insights he would share, the ideas he would come up with! Even his fellow humans were in awe of him.
Anthony explained the source of this "power" quite succinctly. His brain was "wired" differently from most other humans: his intelligence and mental dexterity were at their peak, yet his ability to comprehend and act upon something called "social cues" was hampered. He called it a funny name... Asparagus Syndrome, if I'm not mistaken...
His body... gods in the twilight. I'll never know how Anthony carried out all that work and still found time to exercise so completely and so thoroughly. It's been centuries, and I can still recall the contours of his form lying in bed, the acrid smell of what humans call "aftershave," which clung to him after bathing.
I'm not ashamed to admit it: I fell in love with a human, a male, to top it off. I turned my back on my people, my gods, my house, my mate, my cubs, my station, my honor, all for the sake of him. Given the chance, I'd gladly do it all over again. You're welcome to pass judgement, condemn me, skewer me with every curse and foul epithet your language can concoct: I'm long past caring.
My dearest Anthony passed on over five-hundred Terran years ago, and I still think about him. To this day I imagine him explaining a concept I have yet to grasp, caressing my fur as we bask in our afterglow, my claws gliding over him as he falls asleep... again, I digress.
Anthony was special. No other human, no other being could imitate him, let alone replace him. He taught me to look beyond what my eyes could see, to open my heart and mind to the unthinkable, the impossible, the mirific. Through my beloved I learned what I esteem to be the most important lesson of my life: it's one thing to know of humans as a race or as groups, yet to know of one human like one knows oneself, that's something else entirely. I knew Anthony at his best, just as I knew him at his worst. After all this time, as my own death approaches and the day of our reunion nears, I still recall one of the first things he said to me:
"My race isn't easy to like, let alone love. There's centuries of history to vouch for that. Even so, expect bewilderment whenever you deal with me and my kind. The things we do and the things we say won't always be right, but they won't always be wrong, either. Hell, they won't even make sense most of the time, but we'll do them, we'll say them anyway. Every moment, every instance is a chance to grow, an opportunity to learn from, to do better, to be better. That has been my experience. I intend to make the most of it."

2023.03.25 00:57 Artist_Laurence I Remember The Jump

Not sure if this place to post what I’m about to say? I’ve memory of several reincarnations going way back in Time. One of my earliest is when I was not resident on Planet Earth. Here goes: something devasting was happening to my home planet; and I was young person placed inside an electro-magnetic coil that lifted me up (ie Jump) from my planet to inside a vehicle wherein others already been lifted. Everyone with me was in terror but we soon journeyed in the vehicle to what I believe to be Planet Earth in the dinosaur age. Please no one insult me by suggesting Superman innuendo, My memory of this is so real that I can actually feel the electromagentic coils that (painfully) lifted me up above planet to ship of some kind. I don’t recall actual landing of ship but do see in my mind Earth as it was plus large creatures I believe to be dinosaurs. I’ve had this reincarnation memory since childhood and it never changes. I also have some additional reincarnation memories of that Time. I’m not caring if anyone believes what I say; for me it is very real and stays with me all the time. Thanks for reading what I say.

2023.03.25 00:55 Bumblebe5 Palisades Center Trip Report: Friday Fun (3/24/23)

My mom and brothers went to Buffalo, NY. So me and my dad went somewhere better. Of course I mean Palisades.
We left at 5 pm. I brought my Knuckles stuffy. I filmed a video (actually a sequel to a Black Friday video I filmed at the Bergen Town Center with a Sonic stuffy) about Knuckles exploring the Palisades Center.
Dad let me go thru a few corridors, though I never got to see where they led to. We went to Burger King and had the Impossible Whopper, since it is Lent, and I can't eat meat on Fridays. It wasn't filling.
Then we went to Target, and I bought a bottle of Sparkling Ice (I need those to survive, since I gave up soda for Lent.) We went to Dave & Buster's after that.
I played Fruit Ninja (no bombs), Injustice Arcade (I got Green Lantern on my team this time round, but he died, and my dad hit the Special Attack button for me), Star Trek, SpongeBob, and the Terminator VR game. I told the guy running the game about how Terminator reminds me of the Superman TAS "New Kids in Town" episode, and he actually got that. I made his day. Then I played Mario and Sonic (played as Knuckles, got up to Day 2 Gymnastics and failed) and Ring Toss.
Then we went by the Ice Rink to find that storage room where all the old stuff like the Brazeiro animals were. We didn't find it, but we did find some old logos on the floor, including Oscar Meyer and DiGiorno (which weren't even in the mall. Why would they put them there?) I have some questions about some of the stores that were on the floor, but I'll save it for the Knuckles video's release, since I got them on tape.
Then we went over to the west parking garage to see if we could find the Rainforest Café props and Food Court stuff. We ended up finding some Home Depot storage and Best Buy auto shit. Then we left.
Funny things: when we were at Target, there were these two guys talking about SpongeBob. "Will you increase my wages? Will you let me play my clarinet? Then I'll give you the secret formula!" Then we heard a guy say, "Jamar, what the fuck?!" in a different aisle. They were probs employees. Whoever you are, thank you for making me laugh.
I can't wait to go back. I don't think I've seen everything.

2023.03.25 00:50 laurenjade88 Cat behavior after attack from other cat

My 3 year old tortie cat was attacked in our backyard by a neighbors cat that jumped the fence. She is a fully indoor cat but has been “trained” to stay on the patio if we go outside and she will sit with us. This neighbor cat has jumped the fence plenty before and laid in our grass, etc and nothing has ever happened until last night. He attacked her on the covered patio and they tussled a little bit before I could get around the furniture to get to her. She ran into the magnetic screen door and he was going inside our house after her and I stupidly blocked him with my hand which got me torn up good BUT my question is about my cat. She is physically fine as far as I can tell, but seems just traumatized. Is this a normal reaction for her to be growling and hissing and agitated at us as she recovers from the shock of it? She has allowed me to hold her on the couch and as long as she’s on my chest she has been sleeping soundly for a few hours. She hasn’t drank or ate anything at all today which has me concerned as well. Breaking my heart seeing her whole personality gone and just seem terrified and uncomfortable in her own home. Any advice appreciated. A trip to the vet is not off the table this weekend but we are hoping to see some improvement out of her this evening. 🤞🏼 thank you!!

2023.03.25 00:45 Sibender Confused about two grounds

I'm installing a home rig and am a little confused about grounding and was wondering if I could get some advice.
I installed a ground rod right outside where the radio will reside and connected that to the existing service ground with a 6GA copper wire. Bringing that ground into the room and running it into a 12" copper bus bar. Then planning on grounding the coax, power supply, and transceiver to that.
The power supply is a Yaesu FP-1030A and the transceiver is a Yaesu FT-991A. I was just looking at the power supply and found out that the negative output is connected to the chassis and to the ground prong on the AC power cord. The instructions for the power supply clearly state to ground the power supply to my station ground.
This seems like a no-no to me since it will connect my station ground with the house wiring ground. Everything I have read on this says you should not do this.
Should I just follow the directions and assume everything will be okay? Or is there a jumper in the power supply that I can remove which will disconnect it's ground from the service ground and then I should ground the power supply to my station ground?

2023.03.25 00:44 lillianr23 Do I still have a lot of time to liquidate my assets before closing?

Hi everyone, first time home buyer here. The new construction is expected to be done by 06/15/23, which is about 3 months from now. Currently, I pretty much handed them everything and got conditionally approved. It seems like forever since I started handing them my documents back in early February. Communication is very inconsistent from the loan officer.
I have a significant amount of down payment tied to my investment assets (mostly index funds that I haven't liquidate). Another portion of the down payment will also come from cash gift. I feel like I have some time left before I liquidate, but would that be too late to, say, get all the asset and wire to escrow by early/mid May? Should I just liquidate everything today and provide them the documentation? I'm really confused and they're not helping me much at all. Thank you
Edit: I'm paying about 55% down payment and have 750+ credit, so I didn't think the situation would be complicated, but I guess no communication is good?

2023.03.25 00:41 Entity417 Houseguest Toilet Issue

Say you're hosting an overnight guest, and that guest is responsible for clogging up a toilet. Unfortunately this forces another household member - who does not like your guest but is very handy and responsible with household repairs - to fix the toilet immediately.
You, the host, apologize profusely on behalf on your guest, and cannot extend enough gratitude EVER for the fixer's on-site expertise and prompt resolution of the problem. The fixer just shrugs and mumbles, "Eh, all in a day's work," (even though plumbing is not his occupation) but you know damn well that is FAR from his authentic inner pissed-off reaction, which he thinks he's successfully hiding.
Anyway, what should the guest do?
1.Apologize to the fixer in person .... but how embarrassing for both!
  1. Cut his/her visit short and leave ASAP.
  2. Send the fixer a Home Depot gift card with a brief note of appreciation.
  3. Ignore the whole thing. Come on, we're all humans with digestive systems that can get wonky.

2023.03.25 00:38 fatalynn7 Unintended consequences…how much more gratitude can I have for one author

Small context, a few weeks ago, we had to make the decision to have my dad come live with us. The transition is difficult, but we are doing okay. My dad and I have a good relationship but we don’t have a lot in common. Now that our conversations are no longer about catching up since we see each other all the time, it’s been a challenge to build a relationship.
He and I went for a walk, and for lack of a topic, I started to talk to him about the Wired article. He’d never heard of Brandon Sanderson, so I had to give him the whole background before telling him about the article and Brandon’s response.
At the end of the walk, when we got home, he asked if we could look in the library so he could read one of his books.
He officially has Warbreaker; which was also my introduction to the cosmere and Sanderson. I love the fact that he saw how much I liked the author and he wanted to give it a shot. If he does end up liking it, I look forward to using this as a great way to reconnect with my dad and form that bond now that we are entering this new stage in our lives.
So, I guess thanks what’s-his-name-jerk who wrote that article?
But especially thanks to Brandon cuz I think it was, his response that made my dad really interested in reading what he had to say.

But doing the same thing with oculus connected wireless (air link) I remain stuck in the mountains environment.
I'm still able to access the library opening menu and launch a game. The fun thing is that closing the game I m finally get into the Steam VR home
But why Im not able to get into soon I launch it the steam app?

2023.03.24 23:54 hodsct59 Choices For Fair Grounds on March 25, 2023 Races 8-15

8th Race: Tom Benson Memorial Stakes --- Purse $100,000 --- 4 YO & Up F&M ---- 1 1/16-Mile Turf:
9) New Year's Eve (5-1) returns to racing after a 6 1/2-month break. She has been on the work tab to maintain her conditioning while she was on break. Looks ready to move into the elite class of fillies but may need one.
6) Dida (3-1) also returns from a 6-month freshening but has 12 recorded works since her return to training in early Jan.
3) Trail Ridge Road (12-1) finished 3rd in her last start, continues to work forwardly and trainer would like to get a black-type win for one of his homebred fillies. A perfect spot to achieve that goal as the most serious contenders are coming off breaks or cutting back too much in distance in one swoop. following the same path as the trainer's other trainee in here. Odds will likely drift up by post time.
8) She Can't Sing (9-2) took trainer 3 years of steadily sending this one out before she finally became a stakes winner early last year and added third more stakes wins, including a G3 on dirt before the year was over. She finished third in her only start this year, another G3 on dirt after grabbing the lead into the stretch but flatten out.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 3-6, $1 Tri Box 3-6-8, $.30 Super Box 3-6-8-9, $1 Super Key 3 with 6-8-9 with 6-8-9 with 6-8-9. Total Risks $29.20.
9th Race: New Orleans Classic S(G2) --- Purse $500,000 ---- 4 YO & Up --- 1 1/8 Mile:
2) Art Collector (8-5) has been trained by Mott for his last 9 starts and has banked more than $3M of his lifetime bankroll of $4M under his tutelage. Dam line has been one of America's best producing lines for several generation. Works since last suggests he will be tough to deny again. Top Choice.
4) Trafalgar (30-1) was claimed out of last start by trainer who does well with horses off claim in their first start, mostly by making minor equipment and step horse up in class one notch. However, this one is simply moving back into same class as he has been competing against since his two wins as a heavy favorite early in his career. In every one of his graded stakes tries, he has giving others an advantage in fitness and top race experience. Two works since he was claimed including a bullet work 10 days before scheduled start. Anything close to his M/L odds and I will gladly risk taking a shot with him to crash the board.
5) Rattle N Roll (10-1) was showboated by trainer with fast works when he should have been getting prepared and gaining experience to run in last year's Ky Derby and instead missed the cut. When he finally did get in top shape, he won three lesser stakes to add to the one that got him noticed as a 2 YO. Looks better prepared for his first start this year, though he may need a start to show his best form. His dam line has produced plenty of speedy type runners that excelled in top class, though he has shown a preference for running late. Can upset with his best race.
7) Mr Wireless (8-1) has finished 2nd in a pair of G3 tries this year. He has shown some ability throughout his career but is still seeking that breakthrough win. He will be making his first try at a G2 race but has two G3 wins to go along with his 2 G3 placings, so this is a logical next step up the ladder. His 5th dam, Summer Guest, won 4 top filly races as a 3 YO including the 1973 CCA Oaks and Alabama S, though none of them were graded then but grading was added the next year (1974 for filly races).
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 2-4, $1 Tri Box 2-4-5, $.30 Super Box 2-4-5-7, $1 Super Key 2 with 4-5-7 with 4-5-7 with 4-5-7. Total Risk $29.20.
10th Race: Muniz Memorial Classic S(G2) ---- Purse $300,000 --- 4 YO & Up --- 1 1/8 Mile Turf:
7) Another Mystery (6-1) is back to try again in this stake as he was no factor in last year's edition as an only speed wired the field and is also back. More front running speed looks to be signed up for this edition and an 8 pounds swing in weights from last year should tip his chances more his way.
4) English Tavern (12-1) raced last against the only speed who wired this race last year and cruised again. His two starts before that, he got the right setup but found the distance a little shorter than he really likes. If he gets another setup like those two races, which looks likely, and can stay out of trouble, he will blow by this field. Solid chance at an upset.
2) Rising Empire (20-1) was highly thought of as a 2 YO as his connections bid $700K to purchase him. So far, he has been a disappointment but 2 starts ago, they decided to give him a shot on grass, and he responded with a second and then a win. Sure, this is a big step up in class, but his works since indicates he might not be done yet. Could be he is finally realizing the potential that his connections saw in him when they risked so much money on him or he loves the grass. Maybe a risky proposition but he is dangerous if overlooked.
9) Risk Management (20-1) was claimed 3 races back by current connections for 80K. He won his last start in an O/C $40K NW2L6M race but his start just before that effort is the reason I feel he has a shot at a minor placing. On a yielding turf course that usually does not allow anyone to make up ground, he broke last but was rolling in the stretch though he failed to make up any ground on the three horses that sat close early, of which two are entered in this race, both 600K+ stakes winners.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 4-7, $1 Tri Box 2-4-7, $.20 Super Box 2-4-7-9, $.50 Super Key 7 with 2-4-9 with 2-4-9 with 2-4-9, $.50 Super 2-4-7 with 2-4-7 with 2-4-7 with 9. Total Risk $26.80.
11th Race: Fair Ground Oaks ---- Purse $400,000 --- 3 YO Fillies ---- 1 1/16 Mile:
I will pass on betting this race though I believe the outcome will be 5-3-2.
12th Race: Louisiana Derby --- Purse $1M ---- 3 YOs ---- 1 3/16 Mile:
5) Disarm (10-1) has made three starts with a win, a second and a third. His last start was his first start against winners and his first start in 6 months, he broke slowly, was rushed up early and then had no real help with the pace as the front runner set a moderate pace and cruised. This start, he will be the one that will play the catch me if you can game on his opponents. 5x5x5 to Fappiano.
11) Jace's Road (12-1) has made 5 starts with 2 wins and a third. His two bad races are tosses as it is pretty obvious, he did not like the kickback of dirt/mud on those sloppy tracks. 3rd dam produced Forest Secrets, winner of the 2001 G1 1M Acorn S and two other graded stakes at 9 furlongs, 4th dam produced Silverbulletday, fifth dam, Rokeby Venus, is the 4th dam of multiple G1 winner Arklow and 6th dam, All Beautiful, is also dam of Arts and Letters who won the 1969 Belmont S, foiling Majestic Prince's TC bid after finishing 2nd to that one in both the Ky Derby & Preakness S. 4x4 to Mr Prospector, 5x5 to Northern Dancer, 5x5x5 to Raise a Native. Also crosses 6x6x7 to Somethingroyal.
2) Instant Coffee (2-1) has done little wrong in his 3 wins in four lifetime starts. However, he shows a space of 28 days between his Lecomte win and his next work. Could be trainer had opted to pass the Risen Star and decided to work him up to the Louisiana Derby, but not as likely as trainer thought he came out of the Lecomte S, was tired longer than usual and required extra rest. He is now back to his usual spacing between works. I will be using caution with this one though. Complete outcross in his first 5 generations, but his 6th dam is a winning full sister to Affirmed.
1) Shoppers Revenge (12-1) has made 3 starts, bookending 2nd around a maiden win. He may not quite be ready to beat this type, but he is on the improve and likely to get these a battle. Biggest problem thus far is his tendency to break slowly but that will come with a little more experience. An easy work followed by two good works show his enthusiasm for racing has not yet falter. 4x4 to Narrate, 4x5x4 to Mr Prospector, 5x5 to Secretariat & Northern Dancer.
8) Single Ruler (15-1) has 1 win and one third in six starts. However, his last was his first start against winners in the G2 Risen Star, so connections, at least believes he will turn into a decent runner. He ran well considering he did not have the best of trips, but trainer tends to teach most of his trainees to run late as opposed to burning up energy too early in a race.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 5-11, $1 Tri Box 1-5-11, $.30 Super Box 1-5-8-11, $1 Super Key 5 with 1-8-11 with 1-8-11 with 1-8-11. Total Risks $29.20.
13th Race: Maiden Special Weight --- Purse $75,000 ---- 3 YOs Louisiana Bred ---- 6 Furlongs:
10) Josie's Priority (12-1) First time starter. Brisnet shows trainer is 0-24 in the last two years with his first-time starters. This is a stat I normally pay little attention to, because every good trainer, jockey, owner, etc. goes on good streaks and bad streaks throughout their careers. This filly is working fast, is bred to be fast and has 2 stamina type 5F works that often separates first time starters from each other.
3x4 to Bright Candles, 4x4x5 to Mr Prospector, 4x5x4 to Northern Dancer.
3) Steauxlit (4-1) finished second in last start which was also her second start. Has bloodlines that is speedy and often wins early in their careers but spacing of workouts after last start is a concern. But it is not enough to throw out a horse completely because training at smaller tracks where trainers/owners have to ship from their farms to work and/or race is much different than larger tracks where owners that usually afford to pay for stalls at the track or training centers. 5x5x5 to Secretariat. The Speightstown angle.
8) Reddingandlee (15-1) has started twice and finished 3rd in his last start, but showed she has a late kick in both starts. Filly probably would like nothing more than to see an early speed duel where she is not chasing a lone front runner. Trainer is adding blinkers for this start, probably hoping it will help her focus and adds two works since her last start, a decent one which gave trainer what he was looking for and then a leg stretcher to maintain her fitness until race day. Win possibility increases greatly if early speed collapses. 4x3 to Mr Prospector, 5x5 to Northern Dancer.
5) Maliki Empire (5-1) started once and broke slow and last but was allowed to settle then asked to go nearing the turn for home and came running like a horse with some ability. No works since that effort but returns in 22 days. Trainer either believes that race took nothing out of her or risking that it didn't. Tough call but filly is well bred. 3x4 to Fappiano, 5x5 to Raise A Native. 2nd dam, Fara's Team, won the 1988 G1 7F Test S and 1988 G2 6F Prioress S.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 3-10, $1 Tri Box 3-8-10, $.30 Super Box 3-5-8-10, $1 Super Key 8 with 3-5-10 with 3-5-10 with 3-5-10. Total Risks $29.20. I know, my super key is different from other bets but is one of my "home run swing".
Race 14: Allowance O/C $20K ---- Purse $75,000 ---- 4 YO & Up La Bred Fillies --- N/W 2 La Bred Allowance Races or N/W 3 races lifetime of any type (maiden races and claiming races for 15K or less not consider in allowances) or $20K claiming --- 6 Furlongs:
6) Hail State (20-1) has terrible looking form since he returned after a 5 1/2-month break last November. Trainer has laid him off for another two months, not to give him more rest but to get him back into his top shape. All horses are required to have a race or at least one work in the last 2 months to be eligible to race and he fulfills that require with a work on March 18 at Evangline Downs in 49 breezing, the 6th best work of 38 recorded at EvD on that day and at that distance. If he comes back in his best form, he will easily beat these. Others in here has to hope for an off day from others for their best chances while this one only needs his best race to get the job done. Value choice.
12) George Allen (12-1) went much too fast early in his last on a track that has been as dull as I have ever seen at this FG meet where no one at any distance has come close to any track record. The winner ran what is considered a fast time in a romp, but he was almost 3 full seconds of the track record. Since he is coming back in 24 days, trainer gave him on easy work 6 days out from scheduled start. The new horse on the block. Ready to roll.
7) Tambourine Star (15-1) comes off a win against N/W 2 lifetime La-Bred allowance foes and it usually makes no sense to end up in this spot other than a trainer gets to enter the horse without any chance of him getting claimed for a chance to win a much larger purse than normally afforded this type. Otherwise, he has a chance at a bigger purse than horse won for winning his allowance race against easier company for the most part. One fast 47 3/5 work 6 days before scheduled race signals trainer wants horse up closer to the early pace than he has been lately. BTW, Fara's Team, who I mention in the 13th race as 2nd dam of Maliki Empire (my 4th choice) is 3rd dam of Tambourine Star.
9) G'wildcat (4-1) was claimed two starts back in this condition type class while winning the race then re-claimed by previous trainer while racing in same class in last start. Trainer obviously thinks he had the horse fit enough to win again or he likely would have moved on. One bullet work from the gate and then an easy leg stretching breeze 8 days from scheduled start will have him sharp.
My Risks: $5 Ex Box 6-12, $1 Tri Box 6-7-12, $.30 Super Box 6-7-9-12, $1 Super Key 6 with 7-9-12 with 7-9-12 with 7-9-12. Total Risks: $29.20.
Race 15: Maiden Special Weight --- Purse $75,000 --- 3 YO La-Bred Fillies --- 6 Furlongs:
2) Splitting Aces (20-1) has started twice and in both instances, she found a late kick well after the races had been decided. However, also before her last start especially, she did not have one work that should or could have indicated she was anywhere near a winning effort. Since her last start, she has one work since her last start in a 50 2/5 breezing six days before this scheduled start at the FG. She is well bred and will likely wake up very soon. Her sire, McCraken won a G2 and 2 G3 stakes races during his career, and her dam, Hallie's Dream, won 2 La-Bred stakes during her career. Broodmare sire, Pleasant Tap, was champion older horse in 1992 as a 5 YO but also finished 3rd in the 1990 Ky Derby. 5x5 to Blushing Groom & Buckpasser.
7) Lightening Mo (7-2) has started once and finished second after eyeing the pace battle early then going after the winner of that battle but could catch her and had to settle for second. One decent work followed by a leg stretching work 9 days before scheduled start to keep the filly happy until race day. 5x5 to Northern Dancer with Mr Prospector as the sire line and his son, Fappiano, as sire of 4th dam. Her 3rd dam, Freddie Frisson, is also dam of multiple G1 SW First Samurai.
8) R T's Cajun Lady (20-1) made one start last5 year at Evangeline Downs where she shot out of the gate, have to be straighten out, continued to lead to the turn, attempted to bore out again, and eventually saved second while no match for the easy winner. Likely just needed more time to mature and trainer gave her 5 months off before bringing her back in February and now has two works, both of which shows speed is still there. Hopefully, the greenness will be gone but won't know until race day. 3x4 to Mr Prospector.
6) Vivi Did It (8-1) is a first-time starter. Two of her last three works indicates she will be trying for the early lead, but I think her chances to win or wire this field if she had at least one five furlongs decent work. Often it is the difference between winning and just being a pace setter. 2x4 to More Than Ready, 4x5 to Seattle Slew.
My Risks $5 Ex Box 2-7, $1 Tri Box 2-7-8, $.30 Super Box 2-6-7-8, $1 Super Key 2 with 6-7-8 with 6-7-8 with 6-7-8. Total Risks: $29.20.

2023.03.24 23:52 FusionToad GrubEx Deal at Home Depot

Pittsburgh, PA
I think this is a pretty good deal. I have luck finding fertilizer on clearance at the end of the season, but not GrubEx. I believe that this is no longer being sold in (at least my) HD store. Still available online for full price. So I assume they are just getting rid of their last pallet. I can't find an expiration date, but I'm sure a year old is still fine...

On a related note, is there a way to "tell" if I need GrubEx? I'd honestly prefer not tearing up the grass to look for grubs. I guess I can try. I don't recall seeing grub damage around the neighborhood. Can I put it down every other year? I can't always find deals like this. I should look into nematodes instead of this I guess.

2023.03.24 23:50 Paperboyy2020 Rip is 8 months next week😳

Rip is 8 months next week😳
At 7 months he was 70.2 pounds.. I dont know what he is now. With that said, looking at crate recommendations. Preferably Ruffland kennels. Anyone have any insight to what size to get? It'll be a travel crate/ would like to use it at home as well instead of our wire one possibly. At least for travel. I was hoping to stay away from the XL for vehicle space if the large is big enough for him. Given he doesn't grow another 30 pounds.

2023.03.24 23:43 MasterAqua Beyond pretty boxes: Tricks to store small daily items out of sight, but easily accessible?

I'd love to mimic the style of an upscale hotel room in my home as much as possible, but one of the hardest things to replicate is the clear tables and counters. The general rule I'd like to follow is this: Everything that isn't decorative should be hidden; everything that can't or won't stay hidden should be as aesthetically pleasing as possible. That second part is the easier one to follow; and there are plenty of nice-looking boxes out there, but more than one or two of those in a room can still look like clutter to me.
All my search phrases have led to tips about things like: preventing buildup of miscellaneous clutter that you mindlessly drop on counters; keeping things technically off counters, but with solutions that are often still in plain sight; or storing things that you don't use often in dedicated drawers or cabinets.
What I'm looking for is any way to keep various unattractive but inevitable daily-use items in places that are quickly and easily accessible to the areas where they would be needed most (e.g., couch, bed, shower), but hidden from view. The only tips I've seen so far along these lines are:
These are all fantastic, but there are a lot of little items that I can't figure out how to hide in convenient locations. For example, next to the couch:
And in the shower (I'd imagine this would be a lot harder, but I'm open to ideas that would require heavy alteration of fixtures, like building in recessed shelves):
Honestly, with that shower stuff, I'd take a "pretty box" approach too, I just haven't seen one that seems like it would work in such a wet environment. We've tried paring down our large toiletry collection, but all of these things are actually used on a daily or weekly basis, so I really just want a way to keep them all accessible without overwhelming a hotel-like shower aesthetic. One idea that I just came up with while writing this was to have a teak box on a tray with little rolled up towels, but that would probably look best on some sort of bench, and would need to be out of the splash zone.
In addition to counters and tables, for parents or dog owners, certain items will just end up strewn across the floor multiple times a day (toys, chews), and it's hard to find a place to stow them that's out of sight but quickly accessible.
I know this is a hard one, but I'd love to hear any ideas!
