I’ll admit I am biased as I lived in Las Cruces, attended NMSU, peered at the heavens through one of Clyde Tombaugh’s telescopes, and got to meet his widow and son, but dammit, Pluto should be a planet.
Everything will work out for you Kat, been reading your stuff for a while now and your posts are the bees fucking knees. Stay positive!
Car related mindset made me think this post was about getting rid of a Saab sedan.
Yup. Honda has done a good job in the past on keeping the design aesthetic different between the two. I’ve personally have hated the Acura look since 2010.
Mind you, this is hearsay and I cannot condone anything, but some friends in Japan say that with car modifications, it’s all about knowing which place to get the Shaken done at, if you catch my drift.
If employers would treat their employees with excellence, unions wouldn’t be necessary. But companies exist to make a profit, and people cost money.
Your point about tech is something I’ve thought for some time. There have been tiny attempts, but I’ve never in my life encountered a closed shop or even one where there was any union activity whatsoever. The level of exploitation is unreal in most organizations, particularly since about 2000.
For professionals, even you are non-union you should observe the power of both bargaining and organization.
Ridiculous how much anti-union propaganda still exists and is eaten up by exploited workers in the US.
I’ve never been in one and I don’t think my line of work should be unionized. That said, I’m very, very pro-union. I can’t imagine how anyone who has spent any amount of time working in a place with a union shop could be anti-union. In my experience working in partially unionized places, the presence of unions…

I’ve never been part of a union but understand exactly what you mean. There are ones that are “for” their people then there are the ones that are of their people. The ones that are supposedly for their people always operate unseen except for a portion of a missing paycheck and bulletins put at a factory entrance. My…
“Find another one”?
How about mocking up a part with cardboard and finalized with fiberglas mat and resin? Then glue on carpet to match or paint to finish.
Ah, I was thinking of doing that too (adding back just the bench), but it’s a moot point since I sold it. An image from the good old days:
好きです！おしゃれ車だよ！Jealous of inexpensive swappable parts for cool lightweight cars. Not-so-jealous of working in your parking lot and 2-3 hour commute. 頑張って！Keep it up, keep it real and make it yours!
Nice work...makes me miss my Capa. Almost. The CVT made it almost unbearable, but then again I never put in time with it since I was tied up with going to sea and whatnot.
And people say say Subarus are like Lego. It’s amazing how interchangeable Honda parts are.
