Obama had two sons, would he stop his
bull shipping? Just asking.

Since Obama was elected self-defense
has been all but eliminated while
abortion has become acceptable for
cosmetic purposes.

On a local note, we had to add another
tent added to our little local circus
since a proposed site for the Casino has
been chosen.

The NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) group
has thrown their hat into the ring with
the usual objections.

Too much noise, too much traffic, too
many people in the area. Same stuff,
different day.

We lost a NASCAR track over much the
same things. We only hope we don’t lose
a $100 million Casino now.

It’s enough to drive me to drink.

To keep sane with all the nonsense going
on around us we look to those among us
who speak common sense.

We have to stop now, or find more pics
of cute baby animals to lower our blood
pressure.

Ever used…

WD-40 is a lubricant that was invented
in 1953 by technicians at the San Diego
Rocket Chemical Company.

The claim is that there is nothing in
the WD-40 that could harm you and the
main ingredient is fish oil.

But as we know, it can do so much more
than just lubricate. Here are few of
the many uses for this modern marvel.

It removes tomato stains from clothing.

Restores and cleans chalkboards.

Keeps flies off horses, cows and other
farm animals.

It will shine your kitchen floor without
making it slippery.

Speaking of floors, it also removes tar
and scuff marks from floors.

Restores and cleans padded dashboards
and vinyl bumpers on cars.

It removes tar and stubborn dirt from
cars.

It removes grease splatter from stove
tops.

Keeps pigeons off your balcony, they
hate the smell.

Removes stains from stainless steel
sinks.

Removes duct tape residue.

Keeps your bathroom mirror from fogging.

Old farts spray it on their arms, knees,
and hands to relieve arthritis pain.

It takes the sting out of fire ant bites.

If you have a wasp nest in an unwanted
area, wait until dark then saturate it
with WD-40 to kill the varmints.

Oh yeah, you can also use it on squeaky
hinges too. And protect silver from
tarnishing, remove lipstick stains,
clean barbecue grills, untangle jewelry
chains, and lubricate prosthetic limbs.

The answer

July 30, 2013

A friend sent the following video and
after watching it I decided to share it.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did
and wish to thank the friend for sending
it our way.

And now that I’ve watched it again, I
need to refill my coffee cup.

The mayor and the angels

July 29, 2013

After a few days of having fun we thought
it time to get serious. And for that we
have to cruise about 250 miles northeast.

With everything else on his plate Chicago
Mayor Rahm Emanuel found the time to tell
the Guardian Angels they weren’t wanted
patrolling the ‘Miracle Mile’.

Instead he suggested the Guardian Angels
focus on Safe Passage routes to ensure
the kiddies get to and from school safely
in other parts of the city.

The Mayor also mentioned the police work
daily to make Michigan Avenue safe. We
believe Emanuel got mad because the
Guardian Angels were passing out flyers
with safety tips to avoid pick pockets
and purse snatchers.

If you know Miguel Fuentes, the Chicago
chapter leader, you’re probably laughing
now. Fuentes politely told the Mayor that
said Mayor didn’t know what the group did
and invited Emanuel to go on patrol with
the group.

We find it humorous that Chicago has more
homicides than just about any other city
with drive-by shootings nightly, and the
Mayor would take offense to a volunteer
group trying to keep people safe in his
city.

Either that or change the name from
Michigan Avenue to Muggers’ Mile and
make it official.

We hope the Guardian Angels are around
for another 34 years. Keep up the good
work.

Baby instructions

July 28, 2013

We just did a post on how it was when we
were growing up and all the things we did
without.

In this new information age we feel it
is only fair if we get some information
that isn’t well known yet, we should
share it.

We hope this helps answer the questions
that all the new fathers out there have.

You can thank us later.

Wasted youth?

July 27, 2013

It was one of those cool summer days that gets
me reminiscing about the good old days. It
would have been a perfect day to get the
guys together for a football game in the
vacant lot near our house.

Then I received an email from a friend
that mentioned the days before ‘fast food’
which opened the floodgates and washed
me down memory lane.

Remember supper with the family? Saying
grace before the meal and asking to be
excused after.

It was a time before we had a ZIP code
and phone numbers started with letters.
A time when TV was black and white and
radio was AM.

A time of Five and Dime stores and soda
fountains. And the closest thing to fast
food was a drive-in restaurant.

And we wore hand-me-downs, rode bicycles
as big as Buicks, and drank from the
garden hose.

But we also remember what we used to
watch on TV and in the Theaters. Kisses
were short with mouths closed and if a
bedroom scene was shown the married
retired in twin beds.

There was smoking and drinking in the
visual offerings, but sex and violence
were almost unheard of. Movies didn’t
need a rating because there was nothing
offensive in them.

Today violence, sex, and profanity have
invaded the offerings from the studios
and it makes us wonder.

Was it really that boring not having
all that violence, sex, and profanity
in our daily lives?

We still say please and thank you to
the waitress who refills our coffee cup
and are not embarrassed to do so.

Sometimes we think it could be selective
memory, but we believe that growing up
before our country went morally bankrupt
was the best thing that could happen to
us.

The nickel tour

July 26, 2013

Here are a few things about cars you may
not have seen before. And even if you
have seen them, they are fun to watch again.

Tim Allen is known for his ‘Home
Improvement’ show, but here is a look at
his car collection.

Since we never get tired of looking at
rat rods we present Satan’s Rat-Rod as
told by the folks at Big Muscle.

Here is video of the 401k Charity Show

For our automotive educational video of
the week we present “How not to run a
dyno”.

This one isn’t about cars, driving,
racing, or burning rubber. It is just a
short clip of Larry the Cable Guy
speaking his mind about gays and freedom.

And for music we have Billy Joel and
one of our favorites.

That concludes the nickel tour of our
coverage of things automotive and more.
