Random Thoughts IV

It is half way into the month, I guess I should write something.

 I have begun working out again.  Getting ready for the hockey season in a few months.  You really notice a difference in fitness when you do not work out for a few months.  Two weeks into the program, I am starting to gain back the15 pounds I lost during my recovery.  I should be ready for hockey, soon...just need to get used to skating.  The goal is not to break any bones this season.

For those of you interested, I am doing Insanity for now, and maybe throw in a little P90X later when I get more strength in my wrist.  I also plan on some bike rides, at least a few rides to and from work, maybe a century.

Flames are doing better than earlier in the season.  Mathematically, they are within reach of a playoff spot, but I am not holding my breath.  Excited for the Heritage Classic in February.  It will be interesting and scary to see who the Flames will trade before the deadline.  This will depend on their playoff chances.

There are plans to update the suspension on the DeLorean this year.  This will hopefully include:  New springs and shocks - for lowering the car and better handling.  New polyurethane bushings - for better handling. Updated brakes - current brakes do not feel right.  And, a look at the fuel system - try to get better gas mileage.  I am currently acquiring the parts necessary to do this, it make take time as I am trying to space the spending of money on the parts.  Actual 'updating' may not happen until the middle or end of the year, maybe next year.  I have had the front lowering springs since last April, and they are still sitting in the box.

So you have all of these plans for the DeLorean, but I only have one question:

When are you taking it in for the hover-conversion?

The hover conversion is going to cost me another $39,999.95 on top of all the other things I want to do. Maybe in four years.
