    Greg Biffle won in Texas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTSygnk1BNs Always been a fan of Biffle. Hope he does a few more truck races.
  2. Hope you don't get bad news Roger. Finally got around to putting the pics from the camera onto the pc today so as promised here are some of the birds I photographed the past few months https://www.flickr.com/photos/50164621@N02/albums/72157709069709303 Click on the pics to see the larger sizes. There's a Baltimore Oriole, Red bellied Woodpecker, Rose Breasted Grosbeak, Red Breasted Nuthatch and two unknown birds. Wife brought some baby Praying Mantis's home today, found them on a bush at work while she was eating lunch at the picnic table outside between rain showers. After the rain I'm going to release them in the garden.

  4. Hope you get better Roger. Also remember 99% of spiders are harmless and are beneficial to have around especially in a garden. Well Sentencing last week was a waste of a day off. The guy just got probation. We were expecting for him to serve at least a month in prison but I guess the judge was in a lenient mood. Being good neighbors also got us stabbed in the back, as the neighbor hired a lawyer for his "buddy"(and I use the term buddy loosely because if everyone had friends like this there'd be no need for enemies) for sentencing and the lawyer made it seem like we were the problem and that we were always causing trouble. Judge didn't buy that BS though when he went through the guy's arrest record that dated all the way back to the early 90's. At least we don't have to deal with the jackwagon for year and hopefully never again, but if he does come back we'll be ready next time if he tries the same crap. One thing I did learn from this whole experience is get everything on Video!!! whether you buy the Ring doorbell camera or another security camera or your own phone just get it on video and back it up on multiple hd's or flash drive's. Unlike people, especially in our case, you can always count on video to testify.
  5. That's funny Hoss . I've always wanted a Gremlin but all the nice ones around here are too expensive and the ones that are cheap don't have enough metal to make them roadworthy. A guy in the neighborhood I grew up in had one with a v8, not sure if it was an amc v8 or another brand but it sounded like a beast when he'd drive by. He also had a Pacer with a stock inline 6. Finally got some pic of the Orioles yesterday at the park's bird feeders. Wife an I went garage saleing over the weekend at a nearby neighborhood sales. Scored a 2tb external backup drive for $15, couple of books, some clamps and a couple of tv season dvds and mint never opened till I did Richard and Kyle Petty metal embossed card sets. Was hoping to find a router and maybe a decent table saw but only found not very well cared for and worn out ones and the people selling them thought they were worth their weight in gold lol . The router had rust on it like it was sitting outside for a while, you'd think they would have at least cleaned the cobwebs out of them as well since they had them priced so high.

    Nascar and ISC to merge https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2019/05/22/nascar-announces-merger-agreement-with-international-speedway-corp/ Not really news worthy since the France's own or control both company's. Wonder if we'll see any fist fights after the Coca cola 600 this Sunday night. I hopeBubba Wallace can at least repeat his finish in the All Star Race in the Coke 600, that would be a boon for that struggling team.

    Around the rumor mill these days.... the possibility of Richard Petty Motorsports shutting down at the end of the season, possibly sooner. That will be a sad day in Nascar if this rumor turns out to be true.
  8. My dad has one of those pileated woodpeckers living in a maple tree in his front yard, I think it's pretty neat but one of his neighbors doesn't think so because it put a bunch of holes in one of his sheds . Yesterday while walking a path at a local park the wife and I came across a dead Prothonotary or Yellow warbler, looks like a hawk or other predator bird got to it. One of the cars is back in the shop, mechanic is chasing a gremlin, same code keeps popping up and he's done almost everything to try and fix it. Car runs fine so can't figure out why the code keeps popping up.
  9. Been so long since we brought a new cat in that I forgot how hard it was to get them to get along. Since nobody claimed her we finally brought her home Sunday. We thought our old Male cat was going to be the problem but it turns out 'Prissy'; what I call her since we found out that her name was Priscilla, is gonna be the hater. Hisses and growls at him every chance she gets lol, he just looks at her like whatever and goes back to napping. Hopefully she'll calm down after a few weeks otherwise we might have to re-home her to someone that just wants 1 cat. With all the migrating birds I've seen a few different ones at the local parks the last week, got a few pics of an odd woodpecker, red breasted grosbeak and a bird that looked like a sparrow but with markings I've never seen before, also seen an oriole and a few other birds that were quicker than I was to press the shutter button on the camera lol. If you live in an area, especially around the Great Lakes where the bird migrations are happening get out there with a pair of binoculars and enjoy the view.
  10. Sending good thoughts and prayers Meadowmuffin.
  11. Figures...I plant carrots yesterday and now there's a frost advisory for Sunday morning
