    I hope it's not too expensive or there'll be something broke behind the wheel as well!

    Yesterday's movies

    Okay, I'm a bit embarressed to admit it but I recorded it and watched it last night. The last time I saw it was in the theater. Even then it was reluctantly. At the time it had been out for quite a few weeks and was likely ending its run and I just couldn't resist seeing the General Lee on the big screen. It is still as stupid as I remember it but there was some highlights, like the General Lee and briefly hearing Waylon's voice. And there were some good laughs. I think my favorite was "We prefer to be called Applachian Americans". I'll probably never see it again and I wish I could compliment it more but it was just bad.....but then again it is unfair to compare it with the original. Everything in the history of movie and TV entertainment is bad by comparison. If I wasn't comparing it to the original I would just call it okay...even better if the language wasn't so bad.

    It's always sad to see another one fall even if he wasn't a big part of the show. 93...can't complain about that. Thanks for telling us.

    Considering how many Truck and Xfinity races he did along with the Cup series, what he's accomplished isn't much different than the 60's and 70's era, also considering he's in top tier equipment with Gibbs/Toyota racing just like Petty was with Chrysler backing. .He's the reason for the rule that Cup series drivers can enter only 5 truck and xfinity series races. There is no comparison though, I don't think he'd last 5 seasons if even that in Petty era Nascar cars,they were a lot harder to drive than the ones they do now. Kyle's 11th in all time Cup Wins but I can see him making it up to 9th but I don't think he'll surpass Dale Earnhardt sr's 76 wins.

    I'm sure everyone knows that today is St. Patrick's Day, so I went to see the local parade this afternoon. Last year, the parade clashed with an important Ireland rugby match, so numbers were down, but this year there was a good crowd until a rain shower about 10 minutes before the end. I thought Roger would like this tractor from near the back of the procession. As far as I can tell, it's from around 1950, and the company that made it is still in business in Boston (that's Boston, Lincolnshire, England - the place that Boston, Massachusetts is named after). It also reminded me of the time that the Dukes painted the General green to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. OK, that wasn't the real reason (it was in 'Southern Comfurts' to save y'all searching), but the Dukes did visit Ireland in the animated episode 'Boss O'Hogg and the Little People'.

    Sometimes living in a suburb that allows certain farm animals has its days... Yesterday while going to check the mailbox I seen a black chicken or rooster chasing one of my neighbors into their car . By the time I got back to my place to get my camera it disappeared. We have these condos next to the apartment complex so I'm guessing it came from over there.

    sorry to hear about that! Around here, I wouldn't have a nice car! It's too dangerous....takes people 2 spaces to park, stop lights and stop signs are optional ( if you don't want to stop...don't!), and " I " always have the right of way! They're still arguing about what that mirror ,hanging from the ceiling, over the dashboard is! I can't tell you how many times, people have pulled directly in front of me ! It does keep your reflexes sharp though! You learn not to assume anything! ( e.g. " They see me", " They'll stop!")

    I think he does some broadcast stuff for NBC, other than that I think he's enjoying retirement.

    Very true. Different words mean different things to different people. My wife doesn't consider me to be a redneck but I do. Think about that. The two people in the world who know me the best can't even agree on what I am. But since I know me better than she knows me I'll win that debate....I'M A REDNECK!

    Since I don't really live in the Appalachian Mountains I don't know if I would have been labeled an Appalacian American had it caught on. It's pretty weird how some things catch on and others don't. I guess I would have just considered myself to be a redneck if Appalachian American wouldn't have applied. I never have called myself a hillbilly that often. One of my favorite songs is Charlie Daniels "What this world needs is a few more Rednecks". I sure do wish Rosco would have caught him in his speed trap.

    Hi folks, My first time on the forum in a LONG time (in fact, I've just spent two hours trying to remember which email I used so I could access my old account). One of my goals is to post MUCH more regularly this year, but for now... It's a key date for U.K. fans such as myself... as Sat 3rd March 1979 marked the first time 'The Dukes of Hazzard' was ever broadcast in the United Kingdom! My all-time favourite TV series, that shaped myself, my interests and my character in so many ways. Literally my first memories in life are sitting on my father's knee watching the series (he watched it religiously every week, on the excuse that "he (meaning me) likes it")! BBC1 showed the first four episodes in a Saturday 9 p.m. slot, before a brief break and resuming a month or so later with episode 5, "High Octane" on Mondays at 7:20 p.m. (a year or two later it would move again to it's early Saturday evening slot where the series would enjoy it's highest U.K. viewing figures). Although I'm pretty certain I would have been tucked up in bed for those first four episode (I would have been 1 year old at the time), I'm pretty certain that by some of those earliest Monday broadcasts I would have been sat on my Dad's knee watching it all. Last year I pieced together the original U.K. broadcast history and order for the series (I might share it on the forum at some point actually), just to see what was shown in what order... and to try and piece together my very earliest memories; it was actually quite therapeutic. For those of us that were there originally (even us who can barely remember it), we were very lucky. Will never see the likes of such a TV series again.

    He's pretty good. Best thing to happen to him was Joe Gibbs giving him the boot as that lit a fire under him. I think him, Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson are the best wheelmen in Nascar today.

    Happy Birthday to Catherine!!

    Happy birthday on Friday Daisy. Hazzard County would have been pretty boring without you. Well, maybe not boring...just not nearly as exciting. We love you and hope you have a great birthday!

    Morgan Woodward also appeared as Dempsey in 'Mason Dixon's Girls'. The story of his death is covered on many sites - I randomly picked MSN.

    In the last 24 hours, Roth and I went off topic. (There you go, I fixed it ) Never heard it sung in Dutch before. The first two lines are the same as the German version, but it's completely different after that.

    Bob Haston Dies

    Thanks for passing on the sad news, but you got his name slightly wrong: it's actually Bob Hastings. IMDb lists his date of death as 30 June 2014 and the cause as prostate cancer. He was 89. He played Barnes in 'Witness for the Persecution', ... ... Slick Doggins (spelling as used in the subtitles) in 'Coltrane vs. Duke' ... ... and Taylor in 'Sky Bandits over Hazzard'. You can see Bob Hastings' full filmography here.
