My gift to all Mutants

I have found a gift to all the mutants who ride the Rainbow Highway.
Look and see the'straight and narrow' past road. and upon expansion of consciousness, we enter the stage of simple living, tossing things we do not need and never miss to ride the colourful many faceted life on Rainbow Highway .. where we can all see the world through a Rainbow Prism...

Steve,

Your New Years Ponderance is a truly fine piece, a profound expounderance, actually. Thanks very much!

You have perfectly captured the beginning, basis, purpose, goals, challenges, and history of RVMdom. Superb, sir, superb!

I think that this and all such things should be catalogued and stored in an RVM Profoundary.

You have done a very fine thing, RVM2.

I think that being an STM brings out the best in many.

Thanks to all - and every word from the heart.
And now for something completely different. Ever have a song get stuck in your head? Stuck to the point of changing the words to try to shake it?

Well - with thanks to Al Stewart and the 50's and 60's that lead to this tune making sense in 1976 -- and with many liberties taken here - I give you - The Year of the Mutant

On a morning from a Bogart movie On a rainbow where they turn back time

We go rolling down the road like Peter Lorre Contemplating a crime

We come out of the sun with our RVs running
Like a watercolor rainbow
Don't bother asking for explanations
We'll just tell you that we came

In the year of the mutant

The rainbow answers all your questions As she holds you safely in her heart
You follow till your need for which direction Completely disappears

By the mountain walls near the blue waterfalls
To a hidden door she leads you to
These days, "I feel my life Just like a river running through"

The year of the mutant

Thats why we look at you so coolly
And our eyes shine like the moon in the sea
We remember days of incense and patchouli
So we ride the rainbow to find what's waiting outside

In the year of the mutant

Monday morning comes and we're still on the run And the bus and the tourists are gone
We've made our choice and bought our ticket
So we're stayin on

But the drumbeat strains of the highway remain
In the rhythm of the new-born day
You know sometime you're bound to leave her
But for now you're going to stay

In the year of the mutant
The year of the mutant

In my former life I was an IT Security Specialist at NASA, JSC. My forte was computer forensics. That is, I reconstructed files that were deleted by users who were not supposed to have those types of files. In other words I got paid to look at things others were not supposed to. It was interesting to say the least and in person I'll talk about it, but not for posting. Technology sure has changed. I'm not sure I'm even close to being up-to-date on the technology, but hey, I try.

I'm slowly getting to that point. Almost all items I have now, if it's "bruk" - someone else can fix it.

Mike, before reservoirs that held water some would put in hot water to try and get the pot to work faster. Unfortunately it softened up the rubber tubing and the pressure from the pump would cause the tubing to slip of the metal tube. Once it slipped off the pressure was reduced because of the leak, the tube stopped slipping and leak continued. We had two that leaked but hot water was not the culprit. i was able to take the pot apart, clean it and put the tube back on the metal part. Most likely it was the hard water we have and the calcium build up. Using the wire rod provided and vinegar as suggested in the manual should keep it working for a long time.

Next time you do need to purchase one, get it at Bed Bath & Beyond. Keep the receipt and in a few years when it stops working take it back to a BB&B and they will replace it - no questions. And, most of the time you can print out a 20% discount coupon, or ask as Earlene usually has a couple in the glove box and I'll spend $0.50 just for you and mail it.

========

Steve, I have a couple of 5-1/4" floppies hanging around and I have the drives to operate them. So when you get stuck with one of your old 5-1/4" floppies and need it put on a DVD - give a holler. For you I'll charge you half price.

Happy Birthday RVM2

Steve my wise and trusted friend. A great ponder indeed.

But... You know I can't pass this up...

Isn't this the last birthday you will ever acknowledge?

Isn't 59 the official end of aging for RVMs?

Perhaps reaching the point of "who cares how old I am" has just busted your rainbow WIDE OPEN and is the inspiration for such a grand ponder?

Thank you my friend for just being you! (I know...sounds more mushy than manly but what the heck!)

Just being ourselves is the way of the mutant. No mush - just fact! LoL.

As for aging - well - it is quite possible that this day has a certain meaning to me, aside from being the day I butchered the Year of the Cat...
Thanks bro - and same to you.

Now it's time to ponder what a STM is? Stout Tubby Mutant perhaps!

We are all STMs.

Sick Twisted Mutants.

Good Morning Mutey's !!

A great day for one and all !!! thank you Steve for a great ponderance and song to boot. I have also thought about how this little thread only 9 months old has blossomed. I thought I came to the party late becoming RVM #39. But that asnt the case at all seeing that we are now up to RVM # 65 with more to come I'm quite sure. The help I have received and the suggestions given over the past 9 months has been incredible, from Magic Carpet fixes to moral support given for the loss of a parent.

Who would have thought a mere idea could have spawned friendships deep with people we have yet to meet face to face. And to those of us that have had a chance to meet some of our on-line counterparts, isnt it amazing how well our journey's mesh.

Yesterday marked one year since we purchased our rolling home and I can hardly believe it. Even with the issues that come with a 13 year old coach, I wouldnt trade any of the experiences I've encounter thus far, for the ice and snow of the place that we rolled away from.

This isnt a lifestyle that is for everyone, but for Marcia and I it is the destination of a lifetime.

Cheers !!!

Negative?

Muddy, why all the negativeness?
I wasn't being negative at all. Sorry if it came off that way. I was presenting what I thought might be helpful if another mutant wished to try fixing a Keurig. The leaking solenoid is the #1 reason they fail. The parts are cheap but a whole new brewer is not. I assumed I'm not the only 'Fix-It Mutant' there is.

Money not spent replacing something can be used in the pursuit of rainbows.
