I wish I could go to the doctor without feeling I'm just a burden to the system, as least the operation was a useful visit but most of my appointments just waste everybody's time, at least according to statistics that I've seen I see a doctor less often than the average, despite having poor health requiring pills.
The pity is that I saw a ball joint boot was split while I was doing it, then as we were testing the clutch I suspect it needs new universal joints, plus I suspect the timing chain. Somehow I think there might be plenty of other things that need doing to the old beast.
I'd now love to talk the Doctor into a quick snip like this one on my intestine where I still have that bleeding problem that has sadly caused me to be almost teetotal. He'd only have to dig in a tiny way to find it and I'd think a quick zap with that expensive soldering iron and a few stitches would fix it up, but somehow I don't like my chances of sweet talking him.
I took it from a taxi we took from Makati to Ermita, and naturally I was quite lost the whole journey but I had a couple of clues from other shots along the way to help me. It seems the driver, typically for tourists around the world took us the long way, but since the fare was agreed before starting it was very likely the best route.
On a happy footnote I've read online that the Cowboys have had an extra time win in the Grand Final and are now the Premiers of the NRL. I'm going to enjoy the replay that starts in 15 minutes, my nerves (and eyesight) didn't allow me to see a minute of the live telecast on macroblocky free TV.
It's in the Calamba area which has plenty of thermal pool resorts.
One more sleep before the Cowboys play the last game of the season to decide the premiership, a game I'll have to wait until the replay before watching, I don't handle stress very well.
The old screw thread on the mount broke years ago but it's the same as common 15 mm plumbing fittings thread.
BTW having recirculation on is for car salesmen and when there's a very dead animal on the roadside, flow through is the preferred setting. Car salesmen have their ways like they will always have a transmission set in the power position if the car has a power/economy switch, probably it's best to set everything they do to its opposite position.
