    Tires

    To me, the most important thing is how well a car/truck tire stays round over the years. I like Uniroyal tiger paw tires for a good compromise between tire life and quiet comfort. For the money they've been a favorite of mine for about 20 years now. My favorite tire ever was a Road Handler...

    Pandemic supply chain in your area

    So when you no longer see boat loads of masks and hand sanitizers, isn't that sorta back to normal?

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    I'm with Poppy. Basically it aint like we're used to being pulled over to start with. Next, our judgement is different than somone used to pulling people over. Now I can see if he had driven an additional 2 miles until he pulled onto a side street or whatever, and his registration was 6 months...

    Binge worthy series

    Mayor of Kingstown season 1. So far so good. A saga about a prison town with a bunch of people you've probably seen on other tv shows but scratch your head wondering where. Another masterpiece by Taylor Sheridan. It's not Yellowstone or Sicario but his style can be seen, if only in the...

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    But how much $ more do you spend in fuel? My work truck for example gets 22mpg at 55 and 16mpg at 70mph. That's 3 more gallons in 200 miles or around 40 miles per tank full less.

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    The only time I've been pulled over was for not moving over a lane when a police car was on the shoulder the year before covid. The officer was in his car, cars were approaching me at a rapid pace to my left so I felt it safer to stay in the right lane. When the police car was behind me with...

    Butter and Bread and Sandwiches Oh My! (II)

    Only in America do people end up in the ER from cooking a thanksgiving turkey. 😱 Exploding batteries? Nah, exploding turkey.

    Butter and Bread and Sandwiches Oh My! (II)

    Cranberry sauce stopped showing up at our gathering when my pop passed away. He was the last hold out in our fam-damily. As a kid there were enough people that liked it to eat 3 cans of it. But between death and divorce that trend slowly disappeared. One year we found a can in the cabinet that...

    Butter and Bread and Sandwiches Oh My! (II)

    After reading how some folks rip breast meat off the carcass then slice it I tried it. But decided to use a "pulled" method of slicing up the bird this year.

    It's called center of the universe syndrome. They believe they are supposed to be in front of you. Nothing beyond that matters in their universe.

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    I use cruise control a lot. A lot. Used to be a time they'd activate at 45. Now you can set the cruise control going 12. So the times I'm in a speed trap zone I set the cruise control to 1mph over. I keep an mp3 player in the vehicle and about 25gb of music. It has albums and playlists. So say...

    Butter and Bread and Sandwiches Oh My! (II)

    Every year my sister and her group (that live far away from me) show on fakebook this gigantic mess of dishes to clean up on thanksgiving day. I show a photo of my kitchen already cleaned up. We clean as we go and re-use pots n pans instead of dirtying up everything in a kitchen cabinets...

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    He can get a conversation started for sure. Now, in my view to say the law abiding citizen is a danger because the vast majority choose not to says a lot about a society. I remember when I used to drive 10-15 over the limit on the interstate and "rrrrrrttttt" suddenly the 3 lanes were reduced...

    Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving Another day to be thankful for. Some years on thanksgiving I ponder the blessings of the past year. Other years I ponder the memories of years gone past and those no longer on the top side of the grass. This year my thoughts are on a lot of past and present with no thoughts...

    Am I the only one who drives the speed limit?

    I thought this might be a thread Raggie would start except for 2 reasons. 1) he doesn't own a car. 2) he is in self exile from CPF. I commute on the interstate, main roads and subdivisions on a regular basis and it seems me and 2 other people drive the speed limit. Not the ones who drive 18mph...

    Butter and Bread and Sandwiches Oh My! (II)

    My pop had a carving knife. I remember one year at my grandmas my uncle whipped out an electric knife. My pop laughed and said "you do it then"... i don't recall seeing the electric knife after that year.
