    When the Clown Prince got the boot in 2018 I thought Nascar execs were done with bad ideas but nope https://www.jayski.com/2022/01/27/martinsville-spring-race-to-be-400-laps/ Yeah let's shorten the length of exciting short track races but keep the same laps at boring 1.5mile tracks.
  2. Interesting how things finally get fixed around here when you start documenting it. Monday morning I fell again on the iced over sidewalk leading to the parking lot. Since late November early December the eavestrough down spout at the end of the building had been separated from the eavestrough so all the rain and snowmelt has been pouring down on the neighbors front step and then down to the sidewalk. The roof is black so even when it's really cold like it has been this week the snow melts on sunny days and the sidewalk has been covered with a 1/8-1/4 inch thick layer of ice. Monday morning after I fell I took pictures of the missing down spout and ice covered sidewalks, did it again Tuesday and yesterday morning as well. I guess management got word of it or maybe someone else complained as well, when I got home yesterday a new downspout was put on and a lot of salt was put on the sidewalk. The high yesterday was only 15 degrees so it is highly unusual that maintenance works outside. When temps are that low they only do emergency maintenance such as windows, doors or anything to do with the heater/ac unit and anything that can wait till warmer days gets pushed back on the schedule to warmer days.

    Nascar is strengthening it's penalties for the next gen car. Any team getting parts from unapproved sources could face losing a chance to race for the Championship. https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2022/01/24/nascar-toughens-penalty-structure-could-nullify-playoff-eligibility/ Final preseason testing is today 11am eastern at Phoenix. You can watch for free at Nascar's YouTube channel.
  4. I'm rooting for the Bengals to make it to the Superbowl again, been over 30 years since an Ohio team made it to the Superbowl.
  5. If she stands at the door in that red bikini
  6. Thought this fit here instead of starting a new discussion... https://www.yahoo.com/news/missouri-jail-officer-wore-confederate-110000397.html Some people really need to get a life instead of going through other people's social media posts to try and find any little thing to be offended about.
  7. So what was supposed to be just one inch, at most, of snow turned in to 4+ inches of snow. Needless to say since the local weather forecasters on last evening's news said we weren't going to get barely any snow the county plow drivers weren't called in till this morning. Due to the lousy roads there was a multi vehicle pileup on I-75 that still has it shut down. We were supposed to clean an office this morning but we came back home after seeing how bad the main roads were. I'll make that $$$ up and probably more clearing driveways this afternoon anyways.

    Tony Stewart is joining Fox's Broadcast booth at least for the first two races https://www.jayski.com/2022/01/23/tony-stewart-joining-fox-sports-broadcast-booth-for-clash-daytona-500/ If he does good I hope they can sign a deal for him to do the rest of the Fox cup races.
  9. Gonna have to disagree with you on that, I don't think it would have been as good if Catherine Bach/Daisy wasn't part of the show. Some of the iconic moments of the show that are stuck in my mind are from the first episode, Daisy standing in the middle of the road in that red bikini and Daisy kicking Roscoe out of the police car.
  10. Im shocked that we got nothing from the Winter storm. In fact it was sunny all weekend. This weird winter reminds me of the one we had I think it was 2012, maybe 2011, where we got very little snow, inch or two here and there and one 6 inch storm. Total out of that season was 2 feet of snow if even that, our average is 3-4 feet of snow every winter with four or more 6inch plus snow storms. Don't overwork yourself digging out Roger.
  11. Wife may have been exposed to Covid this week. Her one coworker, same one who had it twice already, came to work even though her husband and kids all tested positive for Covid. Her test was negative so she figured she was ok to work. Even though her kids tested positive for Covid she still made them go to school . So far the wife isn't showing any symptoms, knocks on wood. Brother in law ended up paying $300 to to get that snow blower attachment hooked up to his new mower. The goober they sent out to pick it up told my brother in law that he had to dismantle the progress we made, otherwise they wouldn't take it back to the shop to put it back on. Of course since my brother in law only has one good hand he broke a cable on the new mower while removing the snow blower attachment so they charged him $200 extra dollars to replace that on top of the $100 they quoted him to put the snow blower attachment on the mower, amazing what some places can charge for parts during this part shortage period. Bet he's not going back to that hardware store anymore for anything even if it's the closest one to him.
  12. I bet it was a heart attack. They said he was found with his hand clenched on his chest. He did a two hour stand up routine that night and many witnesses said that he didn't drink much water out of the bottle on stage for him. It's interesting his comedy was so raunchy considering he played such a vanilla character on Full House. Though you could see his dirty mind come out a little bit as host on America's Funniest Home Videos.
