    Rumor Control

    I remember when people used to give the benefit of the doubt, forgive someone's mistakes, and gave second chances. I sometimes give 5 or 6 chances, against my better judgement. I am not a fan of cancel culture. I call it The Church of the Perpetually Outraged. That's a difficult way to go through life. I just don't have the energy for it.

    I'm allergic to cats so according to politically correct rules that makes you an intolerant hateful person. Your insensitive shirt also doesn't consider the feelings of dog owners so I'm proposing that it be banned. Anybody who doesn't agree with me is evil. Anybody who think that I'm wrong for labeling those people as evil is evil.

    The world has crossed the line from political correctness into the realm of insanity. I could see if everybody was treated the same but they're not. I looked up Chief Seattle and found out he wiped entire tribes and was a slave owner of anybody who survived. I called my friend who moved to Seattle two months ago and he said Chief Seattle is revered there and his statue will never come down. Imagine that. There are people in this world who hate a historic car, the most recognizable car in history, yet love a slave owner. Insanity.

    Here are some photos of a green season 6-7 style test plate that I made with the defective dies. I also added a few HD screenshots for reference. The dies were mistakenly made backward, and they will not cut the edges of the letters from the correct side so that they lay flat on the plate as they should. The '0' and 'H' dies were also scaled wrong and couldn't be used for the test plate. All of the issues are being corrected and they are sending me new dies soon.

    Thanks Hobie. I am a very politically active person. I've had several quotes on CNN (the old Jack Cafferty show) and CNBC, several letters in USA Today, a thousand letters in local newspapers the past 40 years and have also been active politically on other forums but there is a time and place for all that and it's not here....even though I'll agree that those fights need to be fought. As important as politics can be it can also be corrosive in certain settings and I have so much love for Hazzard County, the HazzardNet and the HN Family I would do anything to keep our family together.

    I saw that. I also just read an article that Bubba Wallace, NASCAR only African American, found a noose in his garage area. It just breaks my heart to see things turn to this. I can't even imagine how he must feel. Things like this is why people assume the flag stands for hate. I really hope they find whoever is responsible for this...

    I sat down to watch Dukes this evening, and it wasn't in the schedules. I wondered if it had been pulled, but the channel's Facebook page says they only had the rights to the first three seasons. I hope they get the other four, or at least repeat the first three.

    I think people of the world have gone insane. Now sword/sabre handles are offensive . Bad enough it's getting to the point where you can't wear a shirt with any logo on it as it might offend someone as one college coach recently found out. I'll be wearing my Garfield shirt today so hopefully nobody gets offended by that lazy cat .

    A few minutes from the end of 'The Meeting', Rosco crashes into the patrol car left outside the police station by the mobsters a few seconds earlier. The following exchange occurs between him and Boss: Boss: Rosco, you dang dodo brain, you did it again! Rosco: It is a mess, ain't it? I guess they'll cancel my insurance now. Boss: Because you can't see two feet. Rosco: I hit it, didn't I? Boss: I ought to hit you. Come on, let's go.

    They have the National Health Service over in the UK, but not here. It costs €50-60 just to visit your doctor in Ireland (unless you have a medical card). Over in the UK, your hospital bills would be covered after an accident as long as you're entitled to free medical care (i.e. you're not there on holiday etc.).

    Insurance Hazzard

    Over here you have to have a minimum of what's known as third party insurance, i.e. they pay for damages to the other party if the accident's your fault. If you get caught driving without insurance you can get fined up to €5,000 (about $5,670 at today's rates) and be nearly halfway to losing your driving license. The basic insurance usually gets bundled into a combined policy called third party, fire and theft. I remember a comedian back in the '80s saying that when he was offered this he'd replied something like "Don't be stupid, who's going to steal a car that's on fire?"

    Insurance Hazzard

    Welcome to Hazzard County. It's good to have a new person in town and we hope you stay a long time. From what I remember back then, if you were still making payments on your car, the bank required insurance. If you owned your car then you didn't need insurance (these rules varied depending on what state you lived in).....but eventually everybody had to have insurance that was called "no fault" although people jokingly called it "my fault" since it hurt folks with better driving records. The cheapest insurance only covered the other car and person in the accident IF the accident was your fault. Remember though that Waylon often said "We do things different in Hazzard County" so none of that really mattered anyways.....And as people often said, if it weren't for Cooter the show couldn't have happened. It didn't matter how bad the wreck was, Cooter would have all the vehicles fixed up that same day for donuts and beer, with a small amount of cash on the side.

    Hazzard Square

    The video below has clips of that Wonder Woman episode interspersed with commentary on it. That's definitely Hazzard Square. I spotted the courthouse, gazebo and the street with Boss' house in the short bits that I watched. As an aside, a place I used to work had a customer named Linda (with an "i") Carter who I mainly dealt with on the phone. I eventually met her, and she wasn't wearing the outfit!

    I don't know...but this Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Hendrick Motorsports fan really hopes not. I'm not too big of a Keselowski fan...tho do have more patience for him the last couple of years. Though I do find it ironic that if it does, then the guy who he wrecked and got into a fight with a few years ago, would own a majority of his car. Just my two cents on the topic...

    Evergreen

    Hey everyone, Evergreen has been updated through Chapter 11! Link to Chapter 2 So for anyone wanting more info than the nebulous first summary. This is an amnesia trope, but written realistically (none of that 'bonked on the head and now I'm cured stuff' or 'I can't remember my name or who I am'). With my background in psychology, I've always loved amnesia stories, but I've never written one. Since I intend for this to be the last fanfiction I write, I thought I would take a stab at it. There is also a big crime element to this story, as well. More of a murder mystery that weaves itself through the story. Enjoy!

    I hope you had a great birthday Spike despite getting beat by your wife in putt putt. For what it's worth, my wife usually beats me too. It was nice to get rain since we've been pretty dry too. Got a lot of rain yesterday and the same so far today. I went kayaking on Lake Erie two days ago and couldn't believe how clear the water was. I've never seen it that clear. You could even see bottom if you went out real far. Maybe it was because we hadn't got a lot of rain to stir things up. The rain will help get creek levels up. When they're too low it's hard to kayak. The nice thing about the dry weather is that there hasn't been many mosquitos here.

    That last lap sure was exciting especially at the finish line. Ryan Blaney won his 2nd Talladega race by inches. What's really surprising is there was no 'big one' wreck that takes out 1/4 of the cars or more. Ricky Stenhouse jr took 2nd, Aric Almirola 3rd and JGR teammates Denny Hamlin and Erik Jones 4th and 5th. Kevin Harvick's 10th place finish keeps him at the top of point's standings. Next week is a doubleheader at Pocono, Saturday's race will be on Fox and Sunday's on FS1. Was interesting to see all the drivers and teams push Bubba Wallace's car down pit road in a show of support and solidarity .

    See anything interesting? Too much light pollution here at night. Not far away we have this area where a bunch of dealerships are located, almost all the makes are sold except for the ultra luxury and fast exotics. The lights there could make Nascar tracks with lights look dark. Sometimes when the clouds are real low it reflects the light and makes it look almost daylight out in the middle of the night. I've tried taking pics of full moons with my camera but never get a decent shot here.

    F1 used to issue numbers to the teams rather than the drivers - two per team, with each team having two identical cars. Over the years, the numbers got smaller as the advertising space became more valuable. At one point it was pretty much only possible to tell the difference between team mates by their helmets. Then, it was decided to let drivers choose a permanent number to build a brand around (e.g. Lewis Hamilton has Team 44), and to increase the visibility of the numbers. The latest cars have a number on each side near the rear wing and another on the nose. Obviously, F1 cars don't have doors, so the numbers will never be as big as NASCAR. It'll still be strange seeing NASCAR with no large door numbers. Imagine the General with no numbers on the doors - it's just wrong!

    Well NASCAR's All Star Race moved to Bristol in July. Which I'm happy about. But they are moving the car numbers from the doors to the back of the car to add more room for sponsors. Supposedly that's what the drivers want and they are doing it to experiment with it. I vote to stick with doors...but they don't ask me. So I guess it is what it is...

    I'm just watching an old episode of 'Wheeler Dealers' where Mike bought a 1970 Dodge Charger and shipped it back to the UK for Edd to fix up. Edd has a bit of a reputation for the occasional wild color scheme, so when Mike paid his middle progress visit and saw that car was still black, he commented that he thought Edd would've welded the doors shut, painted it orange and put a Confederate flag on the roof. The car stayed black, but Edd did fit a Dixie horn.

    If you have a garbage disposal do yourself a favor and put an old pan or dish under it just in case it ever springs a leak like the one in our apartment did yesterday. Another tip use some scrap vinyl flooring to cover the area beneath the kitchen sink in case a leak does happen it won't ruin your cabinet. God I sure could use a drama free day or two of fishing.

    Been a long couple of days and I don't know how much more I can take... neighbor started up with us again. Apparently he doesn't give a about the law or he figures with all this BLM stuff going on the cops won't do anything to his buddy who is legally not even allowed on the property. The storm overnight apparently had some high winds which knocked a really large branch off a big maple onto my 1st car which also happened to be my grandpa's last car that was parked at my dad's property. No resto-modding it now, roof is caved in. Had a lot of plans for that car. Even though a lot family told me to junk it after the transmission was blown I held out since it was a rare two tone factory paint job on an '81 Monte Carlo that I hoped to bring back to a nice shiny luster. Was gonna drop in a LS motor to replace the anemic v6 that didn't have enough power to get out of its own way and also grab a new GM 6 speed auto trans. Was gonna upgrade the brakes to discs at all four corners and grab a set of later Monte Carlo 5 spoke rims. The interior I was gonna chuck the bench seat for buckets, was even thinking of going with a set from a 70's Monte that swiveled, and probably have them upholstered in leather in a tan color to match the interior color. None of that's happening now though .

    I wouldn't hold out much hope for that Hoss. Amazon is pulling DoH from it's streaming service. WB will probably be throwing it in the vault never to see the light of day again like they have with the "offensive" Looney Tunes cartoons as it would be too much trouble to got thru all the video and digitally erase the flag and name off the car.
