  1. I know someone who's told some of her vaccinated friends that they'll be dead within three years. She's also stopped talking to her adult son after he got vaccinated!

    Both drivers wanted to stay out. Mercedes over-ruled Hamilton, but McLaren didn't over-rule Norris. In the end that made the difference. I'm sure it won't be long before Norris gets his first win.

    Lewis Hamilton claimed his 100th F1 victory today at the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi (the previous record was 91 by Michael Schumacher). It wasn't his easiest win - he started 4th and slipped back to 6th for a while. Lando Norris looked to be on course for his first win, but when rain hit a few laps from the end, Hamilton pitted for wet tires and Norris tried to stay out on slicks. Norris eventually swapped tires, but finished 7th. The rain allowed Hamilton's title rival Max Verstappen to score an unexpected 2nd place after starting from the back of the grid due to an engine change. Win seven
  4. He was in 'Granny Annie' in season 2.
  5. In the Cast/Characters forum there are threads for General Discussion and Other Actors/The Townsfolk.
  6. I watched quite a few episodes back in the '80s, but haven't got around to revisiting it yet. It was definitely groundbreaking in terms of style and use of color. The night scene with the black (fake) Ferrari backed by 'In The Air Tonight' by Phil Collins is probably a stand-out memory.
  7. Dune Buggy is a not-uncommon surname over here. We have a bus company and a car dealership nearby that use the name.
  8. Found it! It's from 'The Sound of Music - Hazzard Style' (also in season 4). The federal officer confronts the boys and tries to identify himself, but he has a problem there: Ben Jordan: I seem to have misplaced my wallet. Bo: Mister, we've heard that 100 times. Ben Jordan: You just take my word for it. I am a federal officer. Luke: Sure, and I'm Santa Claus, this here's Bugs Bunny. The episodes had different writers, so maybe the two Bugs Bunny references were a coincidence.
  9. Hobie, maybe you're thinking of 'Diamonds in the Rough'. The bad guys shoot at Bo and Luke as they drive off with the rabbit doll containing the diamonds: Bo: This is a dang bunny. Who'd wanna shoot after Bugs Bunny? Luke: Elmer Fudd. I wouldn't bank on it being him, though.
  10. Formula 1 (Pirelli are the current tire suppliers)
  11. This exchange happens on the first test drive of their new car: Luke: We jumped a dang creek. Bo: Yeah. General Lee always was a cavalry man. Luke: We built more into this car than just plugs and pistons, I guess. Bo: Fighting spirit of the South. Come on, we got a race to run.
  12. When the car is revealed in a flashback in 'Happy Birthday, General Lee', Cooter says "I'll tell you, Uncle Jesse couldn't have come up with a better name. After we put the rebel flag on and stuck that Dixie horn in, there couldn't have been nothing more appropriate than 'General Lee'." So Uncle Jesse came up with the name. Maybe there are more references in other episodes that other members can recall.
  13. Bomber (The Vulcan was a delta-wing bomber operated by the RAF from the '50s to the '80s. I've stood underneath one in a museum, and they're pretty impressive) I believe that what we call scones are similar to your biscuits. Scones are denser with more fat and sugar than biscuits and often contain dried fruit. They're normally served with jam (jelly to you) and clotted cream. The inhabitants of Devon and Cornwall can't agree which should be put on first!

    Over in F1 it was the Italian Grand Prix at the historic Monza circuit this weekend. The two championship-leading drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, crashed into each other halfway through the race, leaving McLaren to get their first 1-2 finish since 2012. Lewis said afterwards that the halo safety device above the cockpit had saved his life! Max was adjudged to be at fault, and gets a 3-place grid penalty at the next race. You can see the crash here.
  15. cookies (I was going to put 'biscuits' because we have 'tea and biscuits', but I know that 'biscuits' are something different over there!) That would be an alien concept to the folks over here!
  16. Honey According to the 2 bottles on my shelf, that's where they make JD! BTW. I'm currently fond of the honey variety, hence my connection.
  17. Just before that, Rosco asks the kidnappers "Well, how much money do you want?". They reply "Nothing.", and he says "Well, I can raise that."
  18. Well remembered, Hobie. The closed captions actually leave out the "g", so it's Kissin' Cliff, but you'd never know that by listening. The boys were planning to double back on old Tar Road, but we all know what happened!

    It's unusual that the weather was so bad that no racing could take place (F1 has had wet weather tires for years). The outcome on Sunday didn't satisfy anyone, and has been criticized by many drivers as points were awarded on a technicality even though no actual racing took place. F1 is on a tight schedule, often with races every week, a three-day race weekend and travel between countries in between. Having said that, the governing authorities are looking to change the rules so we don't get in this situation again, and looking at sorting out some sort of refund for the crowd. At least this rac

    The Belgian F1 Grand Prix turned out to be a bit of an anti-climax, but it did make history. They say that the location of the circuit gives it its own micro-climate, and today that meant rain! Because F1 can normally run in wet weather, they don't have the option to hold the race over to the Monday. The rule is normally that the race must be completed within three hours of the start time, including delays and stoppages. They rewrote the rules today to start the race three hours late. The drivers completed just over two laps behind the safety car before the race was red-flagged, and half point
  21. The good weather's holding over here, so we took another trip to the seaside today. We started with a walk around the cliffs, and followed that with a few hours on a nice, quiet beach. I even had another little swim. We finished off the day going along the coast to a place called Youghal. It reminded me of Dukes, because it's pronounced "y'all".
  22. Here's a little clip that I found on YouTube. It's not seen here, but instead of an old truck, they had a horse and cart. The first seasons were in black & white, but this is in color.
