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 
long hangover.
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.
