Nothing more depressing than seeing an engine in bits :(

Quote from a General Electric industrial gas turbine field service engineer as he handed me a handful of gas turbine blade fragments that were worth over a million dollars -

"There's nothing your money or your time can't fix, except a broken heart."

It very nearly came to that because I had to inform my spouse I could not accompany her and our sons on vacation that year.
There is no cure for Lotus, only treatment.
