    I'll be happy when I'm done with the prescription meds for the severe poison ivy reaction I got a few weeks ago. I go from being backed up for a day or two to not being able to leave the house the next because of several bathroom trips. To top it off the one pill gives me the foggy, head detached from your body feeling and sometimes fall asleep out of the blue so I can't drive after I take it. I don't know how some people can take that pill regularly but I guess your body build's up a tolerance for it. Here's another file for the you've got to be joking folder... And plumbers this

    I remember when I was in 2nd grade in '72 ( I just turned 56, in case you're trying to figure it!) , and my teacher asked the class who liked Buttermilk. Everybody's like " EWWW"!! I was the only one to raise my hand. My grandmother used to keep me before I was old enough to go to school and she used to give me Buttermilk. Nothing beats Buttermilk and Cornbread! ( Me doing a Jeff Foxworthy impersonation: ) Do YOU like cornbread and Buttermilk? Then you just might be a REDNECK!!

  3. We got a lot of rain the past 24 hours too. We usually plant pumpkins and never keep up on watering but didn't have to this year. We always used our smaller pumpkins for decorations and bought bigger ones for jack-o- lanterns but this year we're not going to have to buy any. I think I'm going to wait for the Great Pumpkin this year. I keep getting yelled at for being too old to trick or treat so maybe I'll just pull a Linus this year. If my wife visits me I hope she doesn't slug me if I try to hold her hand.

  10. A friend just asked me a question which I have never thought about. The question being "Why was the Dodge Charger named "General Lee"? I KNOW that General Robert E. Lee was a Confederate general, which is why the show used a Confederate flag. But why "General Lee?" Why not "General Patton", or "General Bradley"? To this day, I LOVE this show but I never thought about the reason for the generals name. Any ideas out there?

  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.

  13. 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.

    Had another one of those crazy storms last night. Another 2+ inches of rain in 45 minutes. Once again the parking lot flooded, worse this time. Luckily the water didn't reach our cars but I bet a few people will have to dry their vehicle interior's out as the water reached the doors of some cars in the lower parts of the lot. Lightning was crazy too, multiple strikes in the same spots. While moving some flower pots around before the storm I noticed a hummingbird moth visiting my prairie sunflowers. Guess that means I have a healthy garden for native pollinators .

    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!

    I picked up a couple dirt bike shirts when I went to the races Saturday. I have 6 dirt bike shirts now and I wear them all the time. I think I'm going to continue to grow my collection. It looks like motocross season is done. (not my local track but the big league on TV) Neither of my favorites won the 250 or 450 class. Better luck next year. An 18 year old won the 250 class. I have socks older than that. His name is Jett Lawrence and he is from Australia. He appears to be the future of dirt bike racing. Time will tell.

    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.

    Martin Truex Jr won a snorefest of a race Saturday night at Richmond Raceway. By the end of the 2nd stage Denny Hamlin had lapped almost 3/4's of the field, I decided to go to bed as I figured the racing wouldn't get much better and from the highlight reels on YouTube it didn't. Chase Elliott seemed to be the only non JGR car that could give Denny a challenge but a pit road mistake put him a lap down, but he managed to drive back up to finish 4th. It would have been a JGR sweep if not for Kyle Busch getting a pit road speeding penalty late in the race. At the end only 9 cars were on the lead l

    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.

  34. The Steelers are for real! Big Win! I'm not optimistic through. Big Ben gets off the ground like an old man and I don't think he'll make it all year without getting hurt. Pittsburgh doesn't have any good back ups so it's all on Ben's shoulders.

    That's right! We'll be racing this weekend and all the proud Hazzardites that want to, will be in it. We especially invite dipsticks, time wasters and ne'er do wells etc.! ( I don't think Cooter will be there but I KNOW Ben Jones will be!) Just remember, if you're planning on running in this thing, be there on time. Remember! THERE ARE NO RULES......but one.....finish first,....ANY WAY YOU CAN! ( sound familiar anybody??) Also remember, it's the Moonshine 400....nobody will probably be sober long enough to take it 500 laps! There's going to be a party after the race at the car lot
