    Garret you're not the only one that didn't watch the whole Clash. Once they got to the "halftime" show I turned it off. I'm with Dale jr I hope this is the last year they do the coliseum race. There's plenty of short tracks on the west coast they could hold this race instead of having to temporarily build one. Or better yet move it to a short track in Florida and bring back the speed weeks.
  2. Yeah and the younger generation thinks they should be making $20+ an hour and get hour lunches and half hour breaks and also make their own hours. One of them got their walking papers a few weeks ago at the wife's work when they went off on the foreman for changing their break.
  3. Lesson learned: Don't ever EVER buy a vehicle from family!!! Because they will never let you forget the deal they gave you. If it was my decision I would put a for sale sign in it tomorrow but it's the wife's car so it's up to her.
  4. Visiting family for postponed Christmas. We never make it to midnight, either crash on the couch or in bed.
  5. Electric car owners in warmer climates that got the extremely frigid temperatures found out one thing about their better for the environment vehicle's....they won't charge in such cold temperatures . One Tesla owner in Virginia found out the hard way when they tried charging at home and when that didn't work they drove to a nearby Tesla supercharger spot where it once again failed to charge, in fact it drained the battery further . That would explain why I only seen one electric car on the road over the frigid weekend. This is why I say automakers should be throwing their money into hybrids instead of only electric cars. For one our national electric grid is not up to the task and is proving quite vulnerable to weather and attacks.
  6. We just received an email from our electric provider that there's the possibility of rolling blackouts for the next 24 hours due to the grid being pushed to near limits. I really hope not as our heater is electric and so is the stove.
  7. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Yeah going to be a weird weather week. Christmas day is going to be about 15 degrees and new years day 60 degrees here.
  8. I swear I remember an episode where Bo or Luke is petting an orange cat when they were visiting someone.
  9. Speaking of the boxed set WB has put out a new one for the holidays this year that's even slimmer than last year's so it takes up less space on your shelf. Several stores had it on sale for $59.99 - 69.99, it includes the reunion movies too I think. However I also read in a few reviews that there is an issue with one of the DVD's not playing right so be warned.

  11. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone.
  12. I stuffed myself the past few days lol. Work had a potluck on Wednesday and then had two thanksgiving dinners yesterday. Definitely feeling it today, probably skip breakfast this morning. I'll definitely never forget this Thanksgiving. I'm 43 years old and people trying to dictate how I'm going to live my life like I have no choice. We're still in shock after being blindsided yesterday. We never agreed to it or even had any input yet apparently the decision has been made and my family thinks it's a done deal . I don't know how the heck the discussion from last week that my dad's house needs renovated to bring it up to live-able code automatically turned into we're moving in and and taking care of him. I and my wife never agreed to that. In my opinion the house should be sold as is and my dad should move into an apartment or senior assisted apartment. It's probably going to cost $20-30,000 just to bring it up to current home code regulations and fix the things that he let go when he was in good health.
