Now that we have all this chemical expertise at hand.. Can any of you
tell me what adhesive I can use and buy over the counter to glue
Dupont Nylon 66? Would perfer it to be clear.
I put the battery in my bike last week. The snow drift in front of
the door had subsided enough that I dug the door free. The bike
started right up.
The next day my grandsons donated me a cold that has been like a week
Now the Ottawa River is started its second spring rise as the northern
melt waters are coming down. It will be at least another week before
I can get riding as I'll be moving furniture out of friends potential
flood victim cottages. Better go find my f#@*&%$# waders.
