    There a meme that's been going around for a while now that says: If you think you are smarter than the previous generation...50 years ago the owners' manual of a car showed you how to adjust the valves. Today it warns you not to drink the contents of the battery. I'm not sure if it's true, but it kinda sums up the situation. As Spike says, a lot seem to expect a certain level of pay even when they're just starting out. One of the younger guys where I work is constantly asking how much extra he'll get for anything slightly out of the ordinary and wants his gas paid for if he has to drive to a site. There's another meme that says: If we all switched to cursive handwriting and manual transmissions, we could cripple an entire generation of idiots. I've also seen it with analogue clocks added into the list. Having said that, less and less new cars are available with a manual transmission (they've always been way less popular in the US compared to Europe), so do this generation need to know how to drive them? Things move on. There are plenty of things that this generation do in which I have no interest, e.g. paying for something with my phone. Over 50+ years I've developed ways of doing things that I know work. There may be better ways of doing them, but the old phrase about not being able to teach an old dog new tricks rings true sometimes!

    There are some good ones out there but there are less and less of them. Every generation in the United States has gotten softer for awhile now and we are treading into dangerous waters now that we have so many people who think that everything should be handed to them. Put them on the farm for awhile. Uncle Jesse will set them straight.

    NASCAR news

    The Spanish Grand Prix earlier today had its fair share of action. Mercedes finally seem to have sorted their problems with their cars "porpoising" on the straights, and qualified 4th and 6th amongst the Ferraris and Red Bulls. Lewis Hamilton got a puncture due to contact on the first lap, and slipped back to last-but-one. Both Max Verstappen in the Red Bull and Carlos Sainz Jnr in the Ferrari had spins caused by crosswinds which lost them a few places. George Russell in the second Mercedes did very well at keeping the Red Bulls behind him for many laps despite having a slightly slower car. Charles Leclerc went into the race leading the championship, and started on pole, but his Ferrari's engine lost power when he was in a comfortable lead, and he had to retire. In the end, Max Verstappen won to take the championship lead, despite his car having intermittent DRS problems. His team mate, Sergio Perez, finished second, and George Russell finished an impressive third. Lewis Hamilton battled back from 19th to fourth, but had to slow for the last few laps because his car was overheating, so eventually finished fifth behind Carlos Sainz Jnr. Lewis' former team mate, Valtteri Bottas, had a good race with his Alfa Romeo finishing sixth. You can see the highlights here. It's off to Monte Carlo next week for the Monaco Grand Prix.

    After about a 10 year hiatus from cinema going, I've seen two good but very different movies this year. 'Belfast' is based on real events that split streets and caused many to leave the city. 'The Phantom of the Open' is about an ordinary man who decided that he wanted to enter the British Open golf tournament. It's a comedy based on a true story. My brother recommended 'Operation Mincemeat', a WWII movie again based on a true story. I missed it when it was shown here.

    Today is a bank holiday in Ireland, and I went to my first car show in a couple of years. I wasn't quite the turnout or era I was expecting, but there were some interesting cars there. There were also some stationary engines and a couple of working miniature traction engines. I'm sure that Roger would've enjoyed the vintage tractors. I know virtually nothing about them, but my friends spent a while looking over several of them and chatting with their owners. Yesterday I visited the Japanese Gardens & Irish National Stud. They're very near The Curragh, an area of common land known for its horse breeders. Despite the drizzle, the gardens were beautiful, with lots of unusual plants and stepping stones through a stream.

    Let me take a moment to vent. I am such a lucky person that I still have both my parents and I am 62. I have to tell you though that it is so painful to see both of them in so much emotional and physical pain all the time. This just gets tougher and tougher every day and will continue to do so until they are gone. I guess it's part of life and I shouldn't complain because it's better than dying young but this is painful. My dad reminds me so much of Jesse in the reunion show. Once a big strong man like Jesse, he now can't even make it to the mailbox. Tough stuff.

    spare I know the term, but I've never seen one. I'm not a great bowler, and I think I may have had two strikes in a row once or twice. I haven't been bowling since before Covid - our local bowling alley still has photos of Bruce Springsteen's visit there 9 years ago.

    Just got back from the local dirt track. It's my first time this season. There's another track that is 70 miles away and they are offering more prize money so many of the racers are going there. So the number of cars in the various classes was a little thin tonight.

    Since 2012, Austin has hosted the US Grand Prix (with the exception of 2020 when there was no race due to Covid). This year they've added Miami to the calendar to make it the first time since the '80s that the US has hosted two grands prix. Next year you'll get a third race at Las Vegas.

    If these Gen Y Z or millennial's, or whatever they want to be called, don't get their act together the USA won't make it to 2100. Don't want to work or the ones that do think $15-20/ hr should be starting pay for entry level jobs. Giving them advice is like talking to a brick wall too as I found out earlier this week as they think they know everything.

  40. I got three for you. They're all true and they're all about me. 1) If you had your adult kid teach you how to use a computer this year because you wanted to see if there was anything about Hazzard County on it....you might be a redneck. 2) If the only thing you ever use your computer for is the Hazzardnet....you might be a redneck. 3) If you think Charlie Daniels running against Uncle Jesse for President of the Universe is a win-win situation...you might be a redneck. Possum on a gumbush. I'm gone.
