    Narrow Push Bar template

    A couple of forums have a very rough sketch of the wide push bar with measurements, but I can't see any plans for the narrow one. Having said that, the Smith Bros. site still appears to offer a narrow push bar for $299, which includes shipping to the lower 48. I'm sure you've probably searched the internet, but I found an interesting discussion about the pros and cons of each type of push bar, and advice on fixing methods, at www.dodgecharger.com. It looks like the steel push bars weigh somewhere between 30 and 45 lbs, and several people expressed an interest in getting push bars made of aluminum if they could get plans. The dodgecharger link above also discusses the best way to paint them. I never joined CGLFC, but did browse it many times. If there's any information you need from that site, you may be still be able to access it through the Wayback Machine.

    I attended two remembrance services today to mark 100 years since the World War I Armistice. The first was held in the cathedral where I sang last month. From 11:00am until 12:30pm, 35,000 paper poppies (roughly the number of Irish deaths in WW1) fell from the hole in the center of the ceiling. I helped to cut a few of them, as did many other volunteers and local schools. By the end, the floor was covered - it was pretty moving. This evening there was a second service, which was followed by a procession from the church to War Memorial for wreath laying. The procession included 100 people carrying candles. Somehow, I got to be at the front, bearing one of the Allied flags (no prizes for guessing which one was left for me!)

    I guess this goes here. You probably know this guy, but if you don't. Tom Sarmento is one of the guys who prepared General Lee's for the show and is full of great stories about it. Hoss has a great video of him, I cant find it at the moment... But anyway. He met up with two big Duke fans from my country twice now and they have recorded some footage of him driving in their almost perfect replica General Lee which I thought was worth sharing.

    Thats so cool @GeneralLee_440! I wonder if this is the Lee of Alma or Serge, never seen either myself. Maybe I should someday hire the car? Serge has the actual front valance from LEE1 I heard. EDIT: This is Serge's car comparing numberplates.

    And Major League pitchers start organized practices in February. That's next month! There is hope around the corner. Unfortunately for me your Cubs will probably be a lot better than my Pirates.

    Ken ----------------------------------------- After writing the Greenland story, I remembered another funny answer on a quiz show from a few years ago. I can't recall the question, but it concerned Central America (possibly something about countries and capital cities). The contestant seemed pleased that the question was about Central America, and claimed to have visited a couple of times. When the host asked where she'd been most recently, she said Iowa! Again, I don't remember the host correcting her, but I think she realized when the correct answer came up. I think my all-time favorite (which I may have mentioned before) is "Who was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas?". Contestant's answer below:

    I'm sorry to hear about your Bears Garrett. At least they went further than my Steelers. NASCAR and baseball will be here before you know it.

    Long I've never heard that before, but in a quiz show I watched last week, the contestant was asked "Viking Leif Erikson established the first permanent settlement on which island?". Her two guesses were Iceland and Alaska, and she eventually went for Iceland. Why the host never told her that Alaska wasn't an island, I don't know. The answer is actually Greenland!

    I'm old enough to have learned both of the common scales, but have been using Celsius (or Centigrade as we were originally taught it) for many years now. Some useful conversions are: 0°C is 32°F, 30°C is 86°F and 100°C is 212°F. If you go somewhere really cold it gets very easy because -40°C is -40°F. I'm sure you've got an app to do the conversion, but otherwise you'll need to subtract 32 and divide by 1.8 (subtracting 30 and dividing by 2 gives a good approximation at normal temperatures and is easier to calculate in your head). I found a 2016 article which suggests that Fahrenheit is now only used by the United States (and associated territories), the Bahamas, Belize, the Cayman Islands and Palau. Don't forget that your car will measure speed and distance in miles because the United States (and Myanmar and Liberia) are still using Imperial measurements. Of course your gas will still be measured in gallons, but US gallons are only about 3.8 liters instead of the 4.5 liters that used to be in everyone else's Imperial gallon (so the fuel consumption isn't as bad as you thought!). At least you'll only be paying about €0.60/liter, which is about 40% of the price in the Netherlands (even Ireland is cheaper!)

    @rnkibbe still has that pushbar? Didn't know that. Heard them talk about a light weight version on the show some time ago. Smith Bros. makes sense, they make stuff like the jump Lee's seen at Cooter's last stand and John's event. I know this is not what this topic is about but the wide push bar pretty much has at least the width easy to know as it's welded to the outside of the frame, I've laid under a car in a museum to verify this.

    Sorry, I hadn't seen this post. There are unfortunately no official push bar measurement. As you might know, the early pushbars were actually of a truck. Not sure which. But good luck finding one of those. The Valuzets who made the early California cars created new pushbars or very similar ones from the cars they have gotten from Georgia, but they dont let you take measurements. I think your best bet is to contact @CornDog through his RealGeneralLee Instagram account. I believe he has one with original measurements.

    Roger, you reminded me of this old Tim Vine joke: I saw this advert in a window that said: “Television for sale, £1, volume stuck on full.” I thought, “I can’t turn that down."

    Post Christmas Blues

    Surprise! That station was still playing Christmas music today. I wonder if a lot of people were calling in and requesting they play it longer. I didn't but I wouldn't be surprised if others did.

    Post Christmas Blues

    I just had my first bout of post-Christmas blues. The radio station I listen to starts their 24 hour Christmas music on Thanksgiving and ends it on Dec 27 so on the way home tonight (the 26th) I got sad listening to the last Christmas song I'll hear on their station until Thanksgiving of 2019. I'm so pathetic.

    Forum Software Update

    If you need any help with it just ask me MM. I'm getting pretty good with technology. Just the other day I figured out how to adjust the volume on the remote that works our TV. It really wasn't that hard. Pressing the + means that the TV gets louder. And here's where it starts to get a little more complicated.....The longer you hold the + down, the louder it gets. There is a limit though. After a while the volume seems to hit a peak and won't get any louder. I know because I held it down for a solid 2 minutes and it didn't get any louder. My wife yelled louder though so I guess it did work in a way. So let me know if you need any help.

    I'll look into it. Looks like there's an update to the software, so I'll try to get that done this weekend to see if it fixes any of the issues.

    Some of my ancestors are from County Down too! We have some ancestors from County Donegal and there are family rumors about County Cork too, but so far no confirmation in my research.

    I don't remember seeing this in an episode. It could have been a scene that was cut from an episode.

    Coy And Vance

    It's taken me a while to flick through (i.e. not thoroughly watch) the Coy and Vance episodes, but I have to agree with the others. The nearest thing I found was when Coy throws Vance some groceries near the start of 'Witness: Jesse Duke', and Jesse's in hospital when that happens. As a reminder, here's a screengrab of the scene from the opening titles.

    Take two Dukes episodes and call us in the morning. We're here for you if you need us. It might be tough to get chicken noodle soup through the computer but emotional support soup fits through. *pouring now*

    I spotted another small blooper when I was skipping through 'Mrs. Daisy Hogg' the other day. When Rosco's patrol car has its first impact, it loses its front end (fenders, hood, grille etc.), but the shot of the occupants immediately afterwards shows the fender still in place.
