  1. Thanks for giving us a place to hang out, MeadowMufn. I wish I'd found it sooner.

    We've mentioned a couple of historically famous non-NASCAR drivers recently, so I thought I'd share a quote from another that I heard last night. Juan Manuel Fangio dominated the early years of F1, winning the World Drivers' Championship five times in the first decade. Here's his quote: "Driving fast on the track does not scare me. What scares me is when I drive on the highway I get passed by some idiot who thinks he is Fangio."

  6. I was flicking through the TV channels tonight when I saw "The Dukes of Hazzard" in the listings. I've been here before, and then been disappointed to find that it's the 2005 movie, but this time it was the real thing. Dukes is being shown on a UK channel called Forces TV (part of the British Forces Broadcasting Service - Sky 181, Virgin 274, Freeview 96 and Freesat 165). They're showing double episodes at various times on Saturdays and Sundays - tonight I caught the end of 'Mary Kaye's Baby' and then 'Repo Men'. You can catch all of the first six episodes across the weekend. Here's tomorrow's

    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.

    There seems to be a trend here to post stuff that is a little bit edgy. That's no surprise since the world seems to have gone crazy. Since I have been part of the problem I really am not worthy of acting like Uncle Jesse and getting everybody back it line with a gruff authoritarian voice so I won't...... but I will say this: While I may be tempted in the future to post stuff that displays my anger about insane current events I will not anymore. This website is one of my favorite things in the world and I don't want to ruin it by being part of the problem. From this point forward I pledge to re

    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 daylight scheduled Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead turned into a night race after several weather delays. Denny Hamlin dominated the race winning both stages and of course the race. Tyler Reddick though is the one that stole the show in my opinion. He fought for the lead several times once he made his way from 24th and ended up finishing 4th. Chase Elliot finished 2nd, Ryan Blaney 3rd and Aric Almirola rounded out the top 5. Tyler's RCR teammate Austin Dillon finished 7th. Jimmie Johnson did not have a good race, started 9th and quickly dropped to the 20's and ended up finishing 16th. Da

    Thank you Hobie, Roger, Hoss for the warm welcome back. I've missed chatting with you all! Thank you for the smiles too. I can't wait to watch those races Hobie. They sound dangerous and entertaining! LOL Hoss at what Fangio said. I bet it's hard for them to drive and not speed on the normal roads. I remember Jeff Gordon saying he got pulled over for speeding while he was on the phone with Dale Earnhardt Jr. He said he could tell the cop wasn't impressed that he was Jeff Gordon so he asked him if he wanted to talk to Jr. And Jr got him out of a ticket. It cracked me up...don

    Thanks for posting that, MM. For anyone who's interested, I think John's standing about here. The curve on the road as seen in the video is now wider than the one in the 2011 Google image that I linked to (and therefore the one seen in the show). John has started answering fans' questions about Dukes on his YouTube channel, although for some reason he seems to like filming them mainly in portrait mode and just after he's done a workout. So far he's talked about how long each episode took to film, what he thought of the reunion movies (and the 2005/2007 movies), and who drank real beer at

    I'm just really down that they are casting a big shadow over the Dukes by making them look racist or anyone who likes the show. I'm not racist and hate the thought of someone thinking I am just because of a show. But I do see where people are coming from by associating the flag with it...even if that's not what it was intended to mean. If all that makes sense...

    The image quality of the YouTube video isn't great, but I think the truck driven by Norman in 'Murder in Peyton Place' was the higher spec Ranger XLT. Even the very clean Uncle Jesse truck which appeared in the backlot scenes of 'Luke's Love Story' (below) never looked as good. The picture above is from the first page of this thread. The truck is noticeably cleaner and less dented than the one used for filming at the Golden Oak Ranch. BTW. The California trucks weren't identical to the Georgia one. Just like Daisy's car, they changed the model when they moved production. In the

  26. Well said cousin. Being here has been an amazing experience and always feels like family. When you get together for family reunions the only thing that everybody has in common is that they are related by blood or marriage. Here we have something better than DNA in common. We have the love of jumping an old clunker car over a creek with a corrupt but lovable sheriff behind us shouting "Hot pursuit!. I love it. I love it. Khee Khee!". I can think of nothing better or more meaningful than that to bring a bunch of people from all over the world together. Khee Khee. Thanks for making that happen MM

    Remember this from the end of January? I ended up getting cast in quite an iconic role from a popular Irish movie that I'd never seen before. We did the filming a couple of weeks ago in the middle of a snow storm, and then left it in the hands of what must be a very skilled editor. The awards night was held last night, which gave me chance to dress up for the evening. Our little movie was voted best picture by the audience (amongst some strong competition), so I'm going to have to get used to having my picture taken .

    40 Years of Dukes!

    Well done for catching that, Roger, and so close on the heels of HazzardNet's 20th. Admittedly, we didn't get the show until March 3rd in the UK, but I'm happy to celebrate now. I'm pretty sure I saw the first show, or at least one of the Georgia episodes. The first run in the UK was shown at 9pm on a Saturday night, and I was only eight at the time, so I wasn't allowed to watch many of them. Luckily, the broadcaster soon moved the show to something like 5pm, and I could watch every week. Here's a title card for a new episode over a screengrab from 'One Armed Bandits':

    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 inc

  37. It looks like John got away with only five hours in jail due to Daisy distracting the guards and Luke helping him escape overcrowding. I've been trying to find out what's happening with Tom's legal troubles. Various allegations and charges were made last August/September, but not much has been written on the subject since then. Incidentally, Tom's appearing at Cooter's in Nashville this weekend - see here for more details.

  38. Thanks Hoss. I just thought it would be good to put this here since there are fewer and fewer Dukes gatherings lately. I wish this thing wasn't a thousand miles away because I'd love to go if it was closer. I see the property is 58 acres which is a coincidence since Bo is turning 58. As I said I'll turn 58 just 7 days after that. I wonder if I should start an extravaganza when I jump my dirt bike over that General Lee toy. How much do you think I should charge for admission?

  41. You nearly threw me with the racetrack, Kamryn. The scene you're thinking of is actually when they report to Majestic Studios in the season 7 episode "The Dukes in Hollywood". The Duke cousins are in the front of the General, with Boss and Rosco in the back. The full exchange is: Bo: Howdy. Name's Bo Duke, this here's my cousin Daisy and my cousin Luke. We're here to help Brock Curtis out with his picture. Guard: Okay. Who's that in back? Luke: Unfortunately, they're with us. That's J.D. Hogg and Rosco Coltrane. Rosco: That's Rosco P. Coltrane, and this is Flash. Say hello.

    A Return to Sanity

    I've seen two things recently that have given me hope. An article about Ray Kohn's jump in Detroit mentioned that the flag wasn't a big issue since people like Dukes so much. I'm pretty bad with finding stuff on the web but I saw an article about how even the mayor had a picture taken with the General. (If someone can refind that and post the link here I'd appreciate it). I also opened my Sunday newspaper and saw a section called Parade that has been around in Sunday's paper as long as I can remember. On the front was characters from the TV series Dallas comparing what those stars made to

Since Uncle Jesse celebrates his 100th birthday this year (Denver Pyle born May 11, 1920) and since I am now the same age he was when Dukes debuted and since I'm retired now and have more time I'm doing an episode review. I will watch the shows in order, make a few comment and anybody who wants can add their thoughts on that episode. We should wrap this up before the year ends.

    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).
