October 24th

Vic took the van to get smogged, and the place I usually go couldn't do it "because they don't have the specifications".  I want it tested, not tuned, and they were perfectly happy to just test it the last 2 times it's been there.  Anyway...

Luckily the 2nd place she went were quite happy to just test it.  It passed, but the NOx was high on the 15mph test - I'm thinking that's because there's no exhaust gas recirculating system on it.  I'm not going to worry unduly, I'll just try and remember to put some good premium gas in it before the next smog test in 2 years.  I registered the van so I can cross that off my "to-do' list, even though it's not due until December.   It's $90, so I don't think the loss of interest on that'll kill me.

Oh, I went to the gym, and it wasn't as bad as I'd feared it was going to be.  Yay.

I spoke to the guys at the spa place, and they agreed that swapping the sensor out is fairly easy, but said I shouldn't just let the water leak out of the hole while I change it - apparently it can (so, with me, will) end up on the pumps and stuff, and that's bad.  Or something.  Anyway, I went ahead and ordered 2 sensors online (so I'll never have this happen again), as they have them in stock and the spa place suggested 2 weeks to get them in.  The place I ordered them from is in Roseville, by the look of things, so it would be nice if they arrive tomorrow.

We had a call from the pet microchip people, as our next door neighbour's put us down as an emergency contact for his dog.  That he's given to somebody else.  Of course, we can't find him at the moment, so Vic had a long conversation with the people who have found Jacobi... it sounds like he's not far from his new home, we just don't know where that is yet.  Hopefully we can grab Bill later and get him to sort all this out :o)
