    Nascar Silly Season as of 11/24/20 https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/11/24/nascar-silly-season-where-things-stand/ Morgan Shepherd diagnosed with Parkinson's disease https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/11/23/morgan-shepherd-diagnosed-with-early-stages-of-parkinsons-disease/ Ryan Newman interview https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/11/23/ryan-newman-thankful-daytona-500-crash-driven2savelives-organ-donation-bryan-clauson/
  2. I think another shutdown in Ohio is inevitable now. In the last 4 days the county has had almost a thousand new confirmed covid cases, which is a huge spike compared to the past few weeks even. Local library's have closed to the public again, only doing non contact dropoffs and drive thru pick ups if the library has a drive thru. Most of the local schools went back to online classes. People aren't social distancing as much as they were either, seen a few times of grocery store workers reminding people at the cash registers. Stay safe and healthy y'all.
  3. Got an inch of unexpected snow yesterday. After dealing with all the BS and jerks last week the snow sort of got me back in the spirit of the season by covering the trees and grass and making it look all Christmas-ey. It all melted today of course though we could have more tomorrow which will probably melt Wednesday as temps will once again bounce back up to the 50's.
  4. This is one of the episodes my wife enjoys watching. Might have to dig this season out to watch it again.
  5. Thanks to the engineer who thought the hood latch should have a big rectangular hole I was able to snake the Shopvac's hose in front of the radiator and vacuum most of the crap off the radiator that was blown onto it, told the wife to be safe to take it to the mechanic and have him blow the fins out some time this week. Those bozo's got leaves and dirt all over the engine bay, even on the exhaust manifold's.

    New team out of the ashes of GoFas Racing...Live Fast Racing formed by Matt Tifft and BJ McLeod who will also drive https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/11/20/live-fast-motorsports-team-b-j-mcleod-matt-tifft-nascar/. They will also have a tech alliance with Stewart Haas Racing.
  7. After the day I had yesterday I needed a good laugh . I got covered in leaves and dirt and God knows what else from two incompetent bozo's that is part of the 2nd different lawn crew that has been hired this year. They said they didn't see me while they're goofing off with leaf blowers to which I replied 'how the bleep could you not see me standing here'. Let's just say they best not be goofing off in the parking lot today as I might not see them standing there while driving. Bad enough the clowns covered the upper and lower grille openings in the wife's car with leaves and crap. Ye

    I've wondered if not for Mercedes domination since 2014 would Lewis have been able to match Michael's F1 accomplishments. Not downplaying Lewis's talent, just making an observation. Matt Kenseth retires again https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/11/18/matt-kenseth-nascar-career-over/ too bad CGR couldn't build him a race winning car this season. Ryan Preece extends deal with JTG Racing for 2021 https://www.jayski.com/2020/11/18/ryan-preece-now-expected-to-return-to-jtg-daugherty-racing/ Here's a video of Nascar test runs of the next gen car at Charlotte https://m.youtube.com/watch?
  9. MeTV airs Beverly Hillbillies episodes with the Confederate flag in them and Three Stooges shorts making fun of Nazi's so I'd imagine that the cartoons should be unedited though they might have an offensive warning before them.
  10. No lockdown here again yet, just a curfew that's most likely un-enforceable since the governor made a bunch of exceptions and will probably do nothing to slow the infection rate. We had a shooting at a local grocery store yesterday over someone being told to put a mask on in the store. Bunch of freaking nutjobs. That's why I go to the stores early in the morning. Glad your test came back negative Roger.
  11. MeTV is bringing that Saturday morning tradition back in January , doing a two or three hour block of classic Looney Tunes and other classic cartoons that WB has acquired over the years. Not to threadjack but if you're a fan of classic cartoons WB has recently released some restored cartoons in hi-def on Blu-ray sets. But be wary some cartoons have been reformatted from their original 4.3 ratio to widescreen so you lose some of the visual gags.
  12. I figured you'd be getting some of the lake effect snow. We just had a few minutes of snow flurries on this side of lake Erie. The weather this year is like a light switch between seasons, seems like we didn't even get an Autumn. Get just a few days here and there with Autumn temperatures then bam back to winter temperatures. Procrastinating ended up costing my dad some extra $$$. The tree company padded the bill for an 'emergency' call on their day off. What would have been just $1600 last week ended up costing him over $3000 this week. Though some of that extra money went to termite spr

    John Hunter Nemechek has other plans for 2021 season will not be driving the #38 Front Row Motorsports Ford https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/11/16/john-hunter-nemechek-leaving-front-row-motorsports/
  14. The biggest gust we got was 61mph, out in the country by my in-laws they got a 72mph gust yesterday. If my dad's smart he'll replace or give her a check for the bushes that were destroyed in the next door neighbor's yard before she thinks of taking him to small claims court. He got real lucky when she decided to just get her fence fixed earlier this year when a branch from another tree on his property fell on it and ruined about a 5 foot section. She got sick of him procrastinating and decided to fix it on her dime. Wife and I were enjoying a nice after brunch nap when our phones ble
  15. Well mother nature, as I predicted, took care of the tree https://burst.com/8hm9a21e . Thank God the tree didn't land on the neighbor's house but it came within 5 feet. All it did was damage a few evergreen bushes in front of her front porch. Get this, my dad calls and asked if I could help move it, so I figured it must've been a limb. I get down there and see it's the dead half of the tree that fell. He says maybe if we cut this part with my reciprocating saw and tie a rope up to your car maybe we can get it to move, F-that I'm not ruining my engine and transmission trying to move that log wa
  16. She luckily didn't lock her car keys in her car otherwise it would've been about a 2 hour walk for me to get to her work . I managed to get some stuff done at home. Re-roped the cat scratcher for another year of scratching, cleaned the windows, snaked the bathroom sink drain and caught up on some comic book reading in the afternoon before the clouds came in around 5 pm. Feels like winter this morning, got down into the 20's overnight brrr. Forecasters say we might have another mini heat have at the end of next week with temps possibly getting into the 70's again. Cool you got to se
  17. Hope the wife don't lock herself out of her car, in her haste this morning she grabbed the spare key to my car instead of hers and since she drove mine yesterday she forgot to leave the main key as well so I'm stranded at home . Kind of sucks as I had some errands to run and things to do today since it's going to be the last warm day at least until next Thursday according to the local weather forecasters.
  18. Wonder how many excuses my dad will make about the arborists that will show up today to give him estimates on cutting down the maple in his front yard. The ones that showed up Friday, one came in a van and the other a Silverado that was a bit rusty . Yes that was his reasoning not to hire either of them, although I think he just doesn't want to spend the money. Heck he keeps trying to get me on his garage roof to trim a branch and I keep telling him no. His next door neighbor showed him that the maple has a crack in it now so it's only a matter of time before nature will do the job for free, o

    Chase Elliott wins his first Cup Championship solidifying the Elliot name dynasty https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/11/08/chase-elliott-joey-logano-denny-hamlin-brad-keselowski-jimmie-johnson-wins-nascar-cup-championship-at-phoenix/. He once again dominated the race leading the most laps, 153, after having to start from last due to his car failing pre race inspection twice. The only other playoff competitor that had the car to win, Brad Keselowski, kept losing positions on pit stops in the last half of the race. Jimmie Johnson ended? his career with a top five and arguably could have won
  20. Sure is beautiful weather isn't it. I raked leaves and cleaned eavestroughs today. No mowing jobs lined up this weekend so just going to hit a couple of parks for hikes and relax and watch the Nascar championship races.
  21. Yeah it's been so quiet and peaceful the past week and a half . Wife and I even fell asleep Saturday afternoon on the couch, been a long time since we were able to do that. Not dropping our guard though, the neighbor has snuck his buddy on the property before and we wouldn't put it past him to do it again. Chatted with the lady next door the other day and she was telling us of a recent run in with him before he got banned where he kept asking her if she was scared if him. She said she just ignored him and went into her apartment. October was a crazy freaking month. Our Ring doorbell camer
