And I'm only saying this because I care.

There are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing.

Guy in one of my Facebook groups just posted this. Never seen one before like this, I think from the milky fluid it probably is water contaminated and froze overnight and partially cracked it, then it popped from hydraulic pressure when he started it.



drat, how do you get this much water in a power-steering system? I have never seen one this bad

I once knew a guy who made it a habit of washing his engine (I do too from time to time) and he finally noticed his cap was completely missing after who knew how long.

It's on a Jeep, so probably repeated water crossings without ever changing the fluid. The older Jeep P pumps and TC pumps had really lovely lids that didn't seal very well too.

The people sad that it is destroyed aren't the people that knew it desperately needed repairs years ago and was left to fall apart.

Iím doing some real soul searching and coming to the conclusion that I should not have personally signed off on gutting the budget for the facility. Iíve realized my mistake and will endeavor to do better.

It's crazy how the azimuth arm landed so far from the rest of the structure.

It's also crazy how none of the tower tops are visible in any of the photos.
