Update Blog

1. I was able to get the fourth summer tire off the car. The yard-long pipe wrench was no help because its jaws were to big to fit into the recess where the bolt heads were. All I did was give each of the bolts a few good raps with a small sledgehammer (not for the first time), and then turn pretty damn hard on the tire iron. Crack! Each bolt said as it gave way. In the meantime I had driven the car and maybe that helped loosen them up?
2. The Department's East German Christmas Octoberfest was yesterday. Good beer served by real live 'Heidi's balanced by an equal number of their male equivalents: 'Rudi's. Will have to post picture.
3. Ran across this interesting piece of internet detritus.

The detritus reminded me of this:
Frank Zappa's Grand Wazoo album. One of the best ever. It's mostly instrumental.
