Howdy Folks!

Unusually cool here today...Only going to be low 80's the next few days, and then near 90 on the weekend. Supposed to be near 62 tonight. I'm not complaining!

Howdy Folks!

Matt, that's exactly what happens to me! I've started getting up at my usual time of 5am on the weekends just so I can have a few minutes to drink some coffee before she comes downstairs wide open!

Hope everybody has a good day!

Remember the problem I was having with the digital display?

I pulled out the cluster, no problems. Checked the grounds, No problems...Checked the battery cables, no problems...
Throw the cover over it and let it sit in the garage (after the hood latch broke)...No problem..
Fast Forward..

Well, I fixed the latch problem -- bought a new battery and picked up some new bolts for the battery cables as well...
I didn't notice anything unusual when I was removing the battery (the cables were tight, etc), but when I was removing the old bolts I noticed that the bolt on the positive terminal was really worn. Just for kicks, I attempted to tighten down the cable on the positive terminal to the new battery using the old bolt just to see if I could get a good connection. Nope. It would tighten down to a point and then just spin..
I installed the new bolts, tightened down the cables, put everything back together and fired it up..
No problems... Took it down the street... No problems...Took it down the road..No problems..
Took it to work...No problem!
In retrospect, I can't believe I didn't check those bolts when I was looking at the cables. Just think of all the aggravation that would have saved!! Yet another lesson learned! Man...it's good to have it back on the road again!

Ya, I know. I got away with it for years. Had my stuff been discovered by a honcho, I probably would have been in deep kimchee. Always had a hard time keeping my views to myself. But what he wrote pretty much sounds like the hard working, had to bust your ass and keep your nose clean, words of a white guy. Is it racist? I don't think so. He didn't even mention race. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure who he's writing about.
Back after the civil rights movement of the 60's you would have thought there would have been an improvement in society through assimilation. Nope. Many have found a higher standard of life but for some you can't get the ghetto out their lives. They are taught that at home. They take it to school with them. Teachers teach English. These kids learn English but choose to speak hoodanease. They learn about birth control but start getting pregnant as early as 9. They learn the ins and outs of working the system, stealing, playing the race card, and interaction with police and the justice system. I AM NOT WRITING THIS JUST ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE.I AM WRITING THIS ABOUT A SEGMENT OF SOCIETY. These are my personal observations and experiences. I am not a racist or bigot but I am predjudiced. I am not an idiot. Of course I developed intuition through exposure. Profiling? If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck it must be a duck. If a duck shit on my lawn, stole my garden vegetables, and vandalized my property I probably would not hold a high regard for ducks. So the county wants to say what this guy says is not a reflection of the county views. That's rather obvious but none the less true. So all you employees make sure you keep your mouths shut and your opinions and views to yourself. It's not only government agencies, it's private institutions that have policies on image. If you say something that does not reflect the views of the corporation you may well see termination. Over 40 years of regulation, assistance and a host of programs has been unable to break the cycle repeated in impoverished communities throughout the nation. But it's society's fault. We don't understand. You're damned right I don't understand. You get housing assistance, medical assistance job placement assistance, education assistance and still can't get out. Hell, you even get benefit application assistance. Assistance in getting assistance. I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore.[quote]

Happy Friday!

Last I looked, it was around $3.89 for basic, and $4.14 for premium-- and rising. Seems like a bargin compared to what Matt's having to pay..

We run premium in the wifes Rover, and it cost $75 bucks to fill it up the other day...

Happy Friday Folks!

Made it through another week! With all the crap going on here, I either had to..

1. quickly adopt a new attitude to deal with the BS until I can come up with an exit strategy

2. have a stroke..

I chose 1.


So far, so good!!

Hope all goes will with you Son, Tommy

Y'all have a great weekend!
