I took this photo out at Paul's the other day after we were done moving cows. We were just parked, checking out gopher holes and green grass, and talking about how fuel injection is maybe the greatest thing that's ever happened to the auto industry...
Allergy Relief
I guess this is a poll for people who are fighting allergies like I am.
Mine get to acting up terribly this time of year. Claritin D/12 Hour is my "go to" medicine, but it doesn't completely do the trick.
I've seen a very limited amount on essential oils...
The Birthday Song
"Happy, happy birthday, on your special day. Happy, happy birthday, just wanted to say HEY!"
That's the start of the old birthday song they would sing to you at Red Robin about 20 years ago.
So, do YOU want it sung to you on "your special day"...
Who’s Not On Social Media In Your Universe?
Believe it or not, I'm one of the most active members of my family on social media. Specifically Facebook, for me.
I've got a sister in law who has a "rockstar" social media presence, and one cousin who is active as well.
Other than that, mom, step mom, 3 nieces, and my goo…
Automatic Pepper Grinder
It shouldn't make me as happy as it does, but I just bought a battery operated pepper mill/grinder.
It's not out of laziness, it's being picky about pepper on my food. It's more about liking fresh ground pepper better and now I can actually get as much pepper as I like on my food.…
Lost And Found Much Later
So, I'm out in my yard this past Sunday checking out what all needs to be trimmed, sprayed, mowed, reseeded, or replanted, and I came across a lost Easter Egg.
A 6 year old, a 10 year old, and a host of adults all combined missed this elusive prize after we had counted up the eggs that had been …
Free Tootsie Rolls
If you were offered free Tootsie Rolls over the weekend, when you were at Alberstons, Walmart, and Evergreen IGA, it was part of an annual fundraiser done by the Knights Of Columbus.
They get all of the candy donated by local businesses...
Want My Albums?
I get a lot of calls from people asking if I want to acquire their collection of vinyl albums.
No. Thank you, but still, no.
Now, some calls start with "I think these might be worth something". They're not. No.
"My (insert deceased relative here) had EVERY Beatles album.…
Royal Crown Cola
"Me and my RC, me and my RC. Cuz, what's good enough for other folks ain't good enough for me and my RC".
That was the radio jingle RC Cola used in the 70's. And I had gotten my fill of Coca Cola because I got it free while I was bussing tables at 4B's...
Does Your Vehicle Have A Name?
Growing up, my dad was a "car guy". He raced other cars from light to light. He would "open it up" on the stretch of I-15 close to Cascade, where you could see cops coming for 4 miles.
He also named most of his vehicles. His 1975 Chevy 1/2 ton with the 454 was &…
Ford vs Chevy vs Dodge vs Whatever You Drive
Here's a couple from this morning:
I named my dog "Chevy", because I know he'll never leave the driveway.
2 of the hardest working pieces on a Ford are the hood and toolbox lid.
Give me some of yours, please. Clean ones.
Spring Cleaning
I'm in "declutter" mode. I'm spring cleaning and throwing away things that aren't being used.
Who wants some oil filters? Ya got something you'd like to trade? Or you can just have these. They just have to go.
