    I couldn't use Spike's image because it's hard to recolor black panels, so here's a quick effort based on another image I found. There aren't many places for the graphics. You'll have to imagine the flag on the gas tank, because you can't see it from this angle.

  2. Merry Christmas, everyone! We're expecting snow this weekend. Might not arrive in time for a white Christmas, but it might get here Christmas night/Sunday morning! We have a new pup this year (Troy passed last November). We got her from a rescue in Texas last June and she just turned about 1 year old last month. We're really looking forward to her first Christmas and to see how she reacts to the snow. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and a prosperous and happy new year.

    I'm tired of Covid. This might sound crazy but back in November my wife and I took one of our cats to the Vet. We talked about Covid and the Vet said virus' usually last about 3 winters and as they mutate into various variants they do get weaker. He's a great Vet and has always been right when diagnosing the cats. He does a lot of research. I'm hoping he's right about Covid. You need a pickup truck to be a true redneck. lol

  5. Time will tell but you might be right. This latest variant doesn't sound any worse than a common cold but that doesn't mean the next one won't be bad. Raining today but my Ninja got ridden 3 days in a row before this. I'm still getting used to it but felt pretty comfortable yesterday. The biggest thing I don't like is that I don't feel like a redneck on it. Oh well, after the novelty wears off I'll trade it for a dirt bike.

    This may have been mentioned before in the past...but, if you ever watch the classic coming-of-age/juvenile delinquent drama Rebel Without a Cause (1955) with James Dean & Natalie Wood, part’s of that were filmed on the Warner Bros lot as well. The police station in that movie, is the court house/police station in “Dukes”.

    Thanks for asking, Roger. The incision scars have nearly healed and the shoulder pain finally seems to have gone. I guess that means that the worst is over.

    I got to see some live music tonight for the first time in ages. As part of the local Christmas events there are various acts playing on a temporary bandstand in town. Tonight it was a local family where the father sings, the mother plays piano and the son is an international award winning violinist. Funnily enough, they were the main act when I sang in the cathedral a couple of years back (we joined them on stage for 'Nessun Dorma'), and I've since found out that the mother is the cousin of friends of mine (well, this is Ireland after all!). To top it off, the mother had made Christmas cake for afterwards.

    Thanks, Roger. HazzardNet is very much a team effort by all the Hazzardites. I hope everyone's enjoying their turkey. I probably won't get any until nearer Christmas when turkey and ham starts to appear on menus. One of the local sandwich shops usually does a turkey, ham, stuffing and cranberry mayonnaise special which I'm looking forward to.

  15. Here's a look at the PS2 version. I know that Edward Mulhare (Devon Miles) died in 1997 (five years before this games was released), but they don't seem to have licensed any of the original actors to provide voices (unlike the Dukes games).

  16. I think it's nice, that here in Hazzard, you can say stuff and nobody thinks you're weird or you don't have to explain what you mean or what you're talking about, because everybody in Hazzard knows all the episodes! It's great! We have our own little world here ( called Hazzard) which is about as close to perfect as any can be! We're all close and it's really like " Home"

    We had sunny weather here today, so we set off for the beach. Despite the water still being a bit cold, I had a quick swim in the sea for the first time in years. We then went along the coast to a very picturesque village with a working harbor for some very fresh fish and chips!

    Thats good to hear Skipper. Never heard back from the guy interested in the car. I just want to be done and over with this s. This is why I like animals better than people, they either like you or don't or want to kill/eat you but either way you know what you're dealing with. If you guys didn't catch the SRX race last night you missed a good one.

    There a meme that's been going around for a while now that says: If you think you are smarter than the previous generation...50 years ago the owners' manual of a car showed you how to adjust the valves. Today it warns you not to drink the contents of the battery. I'm not sure if it's true, but it kinda sums up the situation. As Spike says, a lot seem to expect a certain level of pay even when they're just starting out. One of the younger guys where I work is constantly asking how much extra he'll get for anything slightly out of the ordinary and wants his gas paid for if he has to drive to a site. There's another meme that says: If we all switched to cursive handwriting and manual transmissions, we could cripple an entire generation of idiots. I've also seen it with analogue clocks added into the list. Having said that, less and less new cars are available with a manual transmission (they've always been way less popular in the US compared to Europe), so do this generation need to know how to drive them? Things move on. There are plenty of things that this generation do in which I have no interest, e.g. paying for something with my phone. Over 50+ years I've developed ways of doing things that I know work. There may be better ways of doing them, but the old phrase about not being able to teach an old dog new tricks rings true sometimes!

    Last night I seen on fb someone shared a Crown Vic painted half General Lee and half Hazzard County Sheriff . It's amazing how many different cars all over the world are painted like the General Lee, from Fiat 500's to Ford Escort's to Lada's, heck even Ural motorcycles etc.. I don't think there is any other TV series or even movie car that gets so much love and reproduced on so many vehicular things.

    Here's your pic Roger Got my winter hair trimmed off Saturday, back to my spring, summer and fall buzzcut. My hair grew out to about shoulder length over the winter so my head feels a few lbs lighter now lol. Caught some interesting things on the dashcam Saturday. Anymore it seems the worse the weather is, the worse some people drive.

    Yesterday, Haas decided to sack Nikita Mazepin and sever ties with his father's company which was their title sponsor. F1 has not only cancelled this year's Russian Grand Prix, but also the contract for future races which were due to move from Sochi to St Petersburg in 2023.

    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.

    Merry Christmas 2021

    I just struck gold. I opened a present and WOW! A genuine 1980 Dukes of Hazzard lunch pail! I've never owned one. Come to find out, my daughter found it in a collectible store in Virginia back in July. She bought it and my wife bought it from her and they have kept it a secret since then. It doesn't have a thermos and has a few rust spots, but not many. The only real bad spot is Luke's right forearm, where he is hood sliding. All the paint is wore off from the elbow down. I'm not complaining!

  36. Thanks for the link, Hobie. It's quite fun, and there's a good few Dukes references in there. I just struggled slightly with the line "In that car all painted o'nge". Virtually nothing rhymes with orange (Blorenge (a mountain in Wales) and sporange (a technical word for a sac where spores are made) don't fit the theme), so maybe he should have put it in the middle of line. Other than that, good stuff.

    Thanks, Hobie. I've just ventured out to get some groceries, and while I was walking it felt vaguely like I'd been punched in the stomach, but not too hard. Hopefully things will get even better tomorrow.

  38. Thanks for the review, Philip. It scores a reasonable 7.6 on IMDb, and gets three 10/10s, two 9/10s, a 4/10 and 3/10 in the reviews. I doubt that I'll get to see it anytime soon, so I'll have to make do with John Schneider in 'The Great Santa Claus Chase', 'A Dickens of a Christmas' (from the Dukes animated series) and of course 'Christmas Comes to Willow Creek'.

    Stocking up isn't irresponsible, that's just being smart. Stocking up after you've already stocked up is irresponsible to society. Had to stop my dad from going to Sam's club every week during lockdown because he would buy another pack of paper towels or toilet paper after we found out he had 4 packs of each already. My old bedroom is his stock room now. He has about 2 or 3 years worth of toothpaste, at least a year's stock of paper towels and toilet paper and garbage bags, enough cereal and oatmeal to probably feed a family of 4 breakfast for a few months etc...

    I can't believe Hamlin didn't do any better than that! I did better than that in yesterday's Moonshine 400! ( Where were you guys?) I didn't win though because I was constantly behind Daisy......keepin' an eye on her tail! Also Uncle Jesse kept tryin' to knock me off the track......think he was protectin' daisy!

  44. 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.

  45. On to project #10: Hughie Hogg's Volkswagen! The first thing I discovered was that it was NOT repeat NOT a true convertible. Rather, it was a chop-top, as evidenced by the sedan-style windscreen, and the bottoms of the window posts still remaining. The second thing I had to learn was the difference between the classic Beetle and the Super Beetle. Some of you already know this, but it was new to me. Although the differences are easy to miss at first glance, I now see clearly that Hughie's ride was most definitely a Super Beetle with the roof cut off. After much more research and guidance from folks at an automotive modeling forum, I realized (after much frustration) that I was going to have to kitbash THREE different kits to do this. 1) Aoshima Beetle 1303S for most (not all) of the body and the bumpers 2) Revell '68 Beetle for the chassis, engine, windscreen, rear body vents, tail lights and much of the interior 3) Revell VW Cabriolet for some of the interior and some of the body details I should also mention part of my research was to go through every Dukes episode in which this vehicle appeared, pause the DVD whenever a good view appeared from any angle, and photograph the scene. I then had the photos made into prints to use as I build. Maybe low-tech, but it works for me.

    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 warning is for you... It's now offensive if you're pants are baggy and falling off your waist if you're not of a certain color. According to an article I read over the weekend it's racist and gentrification if you do . So plumber's better pull them pants up and belts tight so you won't be labeled offensive by the whiney generation.
