Default Dar Zeelon - Where Art Thou?

Anyone know if Dar is safe? I noticed he hasn't posted in for a couple of weeks, and with all of the shelling in Israel...[]
I thought I would post this here since he is one of our MAJOR engine gurus, even though it might belong in a different forum.
Anyway, hope he is safe & sound. [8D]

Could simply be his internet access has been restricted, or perhaps disabled.

Freinds of Dar,

In my communications with Dar he said he is vacationing in New York City and then on to Detroit. He is currently in the states somewhere.

He is not in the Israeli Arm Forces having been pensioned out. He has some disabiling injuries from earlied Israeli conflicts. So he is not in any danger except from US thugs.

Fear not, Dar is safe.

Cheers,

Chip

Dar was just at my house on 7/18 to deliver some engines....

He's perfectly safe, and if he, and his family survived my cooking...they'd survive anything.

What a great family they are!

Hmmm,
Dar beat me to it I see.
My wife keeps reminding me I should deliver engines in person, and not leave it to the mailman [&:]

Amazingly, he looks surprisingly similar to the guy on the "Mr. Clean" bottle. Rumour has it that they've never been seen in the same place at the same time....

I'm supposed to call him in Orlando tomorrow night. Spoke to him before he left Virginia for N. Carolina. I told him where a good hobby shop is in Orlando.

Dar was often right even when many were disagreeing with him. Not always though.

But most of the posts were good reading.

Gee Sport...don't eulogize the poor guy....he's only on vacation!!! <GGG>

He'll be back on-line soon enough, and when he is? We can pick a massive brawl over something I'm sure.

<GGG>

In about a week or 10 days....

A knock down, mud-in-the-face slugfest over castor-vs-synth, and then there's one of Dar's personal favorites...."the sloppy rich ABC break in" deal....

Pull out all the stops. Name calling - the whole works!!! <GGGG>

Welcome him back to the fray....RCU Style!!!

I didn't think he was dead, just no longer posting. [sm=spinnyeyes.gif] But I see he will be back[sm=thumbup.gif]. Still Dar right or wrong, makes you think, and he was right almost most of the time.

This thread is funny, I'll bet Dar will enjoy it when he gets back online.

It's strange seeing a picture of someone you've reading for a while isn't it? I'm sure I'm not the only one, but whenever I read posts by the guru types on forums I always picture a wizened bearded sage with one eye, hunched over his beautifully looked after engines in a fabulous smelling workshop somewhere. So is it just my over-active imagination?

No actually, you're pretty close with your thinking. Dar was wearing a mask for the photo I took. Under the mask is as you imagined...a bearded sage with a bespectacled eye, and a tall, crooked cane. Not shown in the photo is a crystal ball (slightly castor smudged), and a small chimpanzee named Zippy. Hey...you can't make stuff like this up!

LOL - nice story, Race!

I must admit, until I saw that photo, in my mind's eye, Dar was an older professor-type gentleman with those "half frame" glasses and grey hair, sitting in front of his computer in a room with hundreds of books in shelves on the theory of internal combustion.

Come back soon Dar - I always enjoy your well considered theories on our hobby, even though I may not agree with some of them.
