And I'm also wanting to say thanks, for all the work involved in providing us a place to argue, complain, fuss, whine, find fault, and I don't want to forget, a place where we are always full of advice (mostly bad) Thanks again...Claude

Elkie hears the tom toms and he'll start doing his version of the geezer native american war dance...which will guarantee we'll get rain....yikes! can you visualize Elkie in a loin cloth? not a pretty picture.

Welcome to the new, and probably improved, ASA forum. The hard work by Skip & Co. is really appreciated.

(Just thought I'd try to get the thread back on track...geezers is worse than fleas...you can't see 'em but they can drive you crazy.)

Not necessarily so Tim --- hope yer sittin in the saddle, n' got yer feet in the stirrups cause the ride is just about to begin. I have been working on a project for sometime --- for the moment, let's call it a "geezer project". Through thousands of hours of research,and formulizin I am about to release (patent pending), a "senior citizen automobile periscope" --- take them shorties a the likes a Clawed n' Carlossi, they will soon be able to see what's ahead of them as they roar down the interstate. The periscope will protrude up above the roof the vehicle, and the driver motors down the road, as he looks thru the strategic , operator friendly eyepieces of the periscope --- kinda like lookin thru a pair a Apex 12X50 binos --- although you have the option of what power you want --- just so you realize, that the higher the power, the closer things will look to you, but actually aren't which would positively negate any rear-end collisions, so yer collision insurance should go down as well. --- quite contrary to the side mirror on the passneger side where everything looks further away than they really are. Better put yer orders in now, cause the waitin list is growing.

Oh, BTW, they merely cost $300K EACH, but they will pay for themselves in savings on yer insurance premiums.

Now you have a good idea there, but a little expensive, as some of us are on a fixed income. Wonder how much it would cost to maybe invent a seat that could someway be adjusted to raise and lower it's vertical position by some type of control? Elkie, Bet you could come up with something like that, and then even back down.............Claude.

Computer modem went toes up after I stepped on it. Cheap junk from you know where. Hope you all enjoy the peace and quiet while I reload...

Now that's a first !!! How on earth can someone step on their computer when it is either positioned on their lap (lap top), or positioned on a desk (desk top) ??? Somehow I feel Carlosii should get a blue ribbon for that accomplishment. ONLY he could accomplish such a feat !!!

Elkhunter

Clawed --- all ya gotta do is put a hydraulic jack under your existing seat, and weld the top of the jack to the underside frame of the seat. Then unbolt everything else associated with connecting the seat to the floorboard, and ya gotter made in the shade dude !!! --- Just call me "The Handyman" !!!

It's easy if you are as flexible and talented as I. I had a little modem thingie that plugged into the side USB port. Set the laptop down to go get a snack, "crunch"...got a new one on the way via eBay. I know you'll all be happy to know I'm back on compliments of the iPad we gave the daughter for Christmas...
