Where have I been?

Image
Dear family, friends, and acquaintances: For those wondering why I haven't been online lately, and haven't been posting to my blog. this is my reason... Four days before our (Nadia and I) 3rd wedding anniversary, on October 2 2021, what was suppose to be a weekend planned celebrating completely changed. While we hadn't planned a huge celebration, what we were looking forward to was an intimate dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Tasty Indian Bistro, in Surrey. Where we ended up was the emergency room of VGH (Vancouver General), for what I believed was Covid19 related symptoms. You see all week long I had been suffering from mild heart burn and this annoying little cough, which I just couldn't get rid of. We went to the emergency room hoping they would rule out COVID-19, which they did, however their diagnosis was much worse than we had suspected. When I mentioned COVID to the emergency receptionists, she asked if I was vaccinated, and I responded yes with both do

Panettone

It has recently come to my attention, by a loyal Mass-IMO.com follower, that I may have mistakenly spelled Panettone in one of my prior posts. Seeing how this follower was unfamiliar with what Panettone is, or how it was actually spelled, I figured that maybe I should make a follow up entry, to rectify the error. In my defense, regardless of how I spell Panettone, the spell checker I use always defaults Panettone as being spelled wrong, so even when it's spelled right, it displays as being wrong (unhappy face emoji). Now realistically, it would have probably been easier to simply fix the spelling mistake, but we here at Mass-IMO.com, well we just don't do things the easy way all the time. Nope, that wouldn't be any fun. But I digress,...

2005 Yamaha BWS (#2): Strip Down & Rear Lighting

Image
Nadia's scooter (pictured above), just doesn't have the pep it once had. It's a 2005 Yamaha Zuma (YM50, same as mine) with the stock 50cc engine still in it. While it's been a great learner scooter, the 50cc engine just isn't giving the same power it once was (Nadia's words, not mine). With those words in mind, I felt it was time to give this scooter a little power increase and slight beauty makeover.  Since I've already detailed much of the transformations I'm planning on doing with this scooter on my scooter, I'll dispense with the extensive write up, and proceed straight to the pictures. (minor cracks to the fairing, and scratches will be addressed) (passenger foot rest damaged) (not visible, but rack bolts sheered) (Turn signals to be integrated with tail light, license plate area to be shaved down) Disassembly (Sheered screw holder on the

Looking For Game Consoles To Modify/Hack

Image
Hey all you Mass-IMO.com viewers! I'm looking to do some game console modding articles.  I'm looking for cheap to free older game consoles that I can use to experiment on. I'm really looking for a Playstation 2 (fat/phat) donation, but really anything old to tinker on would be helpful. So if you have any old gaming consoles or handhelds that you're thinking of throwing out, contact me , maybe we can save them from going to the landfill.
