Events, notices, and distractions

It’s Friday and things are looking good for this
weekend. If you’re wondering what is going on,
what’s new, or what we found interesting this week
read on.

Saturday is Galva’s 9th Annual Freedom Fest Car
Show in Wiley Park, Galva, Illinois. To find out
more call 309-932-2555.

Later Saturday is the Quad Cities Cruisers’ Cruise
In at the Davenport Learning Center in Davenport,
Iowa. If you want more information call 563-355-0036.

Sunday is the Toy Run for Toys for Tots starting
at the Sterling Moose, 2601 East Lincolnway in
Sterling, Illinois at 8 am. The cruise will leave
at 10 am and admission is a $10 toy, baked goods,
or cash.

If you haven’t heard, fellow hot rodder Mike
Gharring died after a wreck in his ’32 roadster on
a California highway. To learn more, and a video,
go here. Our condolences to the family.

One of the biggest rigs around were called the
LeTourneau Snow Train. Here is a video to show the
size of these monsters from the mid 1950s.

From Russia comes a short video that shows us how
not load lumber in a sawmill. This could have been
a lot worse.

If you follow drag racing you probably know by now
that Jack Beckman set an NHRA national e.t. record
recently for funny cars when he ran a 3.921 second
quarter at 323.43 mph. Here’s the video, but don’t
blink.

If you’re not a big fan on clowns anyway, you
wouldn’t like Pennywise.

With the recent death of Lynn Anderson we felt it
only right to include one of her songs. So here
it is from 1983.

Now we know more than we did yesterday yet less
than we’ll know tomorrow. Enjoy the weekend.
