RE: Best TV mystery dramas....IMHO

I do not use the words 'best' and 'television' in the same sentence. The sitcoms are filled with the same puerile off-color jokes we tittered over in junior high school. The dramas have a plot so thin I know the ending from the opening credits, and they all plagiarize the same story lines from each other. The so-called 'educational' channels (History, Discovery, TLC, et al) are now just rehashed far-out conspiracy junk. If it were not for the news I probably would not watch any TV at all. Too many free books available, free MOOC classes on the internet, or walking or bike riding instead of rotting my brain on TV. If this makes me sound like a curmudgeon, then so be it. I am just disappointed in TV anymore and do not foresee it getting any better. X2.... most television is blah blah turn on the laugh machine and what info might be worth listening to, turns out to be some person showing how well he or she has perfect speech and can talk like everyone else. It's so plastic. I just wish someone could shine thru with their own original qualities/ personality. Doc Martin is great, intelligent and Jesse Stone has that special rare quality when nothing said tells far more than words ever do. I am a fan of Jesse Stone and Tom Selleck. I haven't seen a new Jesse Stone for a couple of years. Have I just missed them...or is the series no longer in production ? Les, I'm only able to find four of the series on Netflix. Have you seen more than that? I love it too... being smartly put together like it is. That sounds about right, in terms of the episodes of Jesse Stone that we've watched. I'm wondering if maybe that's it for the series ? I like Tom Selleck. I remember when we first saw him. He was playing a detective called Lance on the old Rockford Files show. It was a great role and I recall thinking this guy (Selleck) will be a big star someday.

James Garner passes away.

One of my all time favourite actors passed away. IMO, Rockford Files maybe the best TV detective series I've ever seen...and being an old fogey, I've seen a lot. Loved his movies, particularly the Support your Local Sheriff movie Murphy's Romance. James Garner passes away

RE: Best TV mystery dramas....IMHO

WPC 56 is a very interesting British TV series about a woman police constable in England of the 1950's. Also the Father Brown series...excellent. As Orion has indicated, Doc Martin is scheduled for another run. I think they usually make the shows in the spring....then we in North America get them either late fall or early winter of that year. I'm hoping the next Doc Martin will be shown in NA in 2015. However we shell see.

RE: Best TV mystery dramas....IMHO

One thing I like about Longmire is that it happens in a small town, rural area in a largely rural, western state (Wyoming). I live in western Canada in a province with a lot of 'rural' if you know what I mean. It's nice to see a mystery drama in an area other than some big city. BTW, if you like Longmire, you might like C.J. Box's novel series about Wyoming Game warden, Joe Pickett. I think C.J. Box is one of the best mystery writers out there.

Best TV mystery dramas....IMHO

On PBS....the show...'Endeavour'....about Inspector Morse, early in his career. On the Art of Entertainment....the show 'Longmire'. Both gripping, well written, well cast and well acted shows. Although there is a lot of unmitigated dreck on TV....in the end....these two shows demonstrate that both British and American TV, can be among the absolute best when it comes to making taut drama. In my humble opinion.

RE: Acadia, traverse , enclave, strong sellers !

I have the similarly-sized Toyota Highlander (2008) and have towed with it for around 140,000 of its total 162,000 miles. The HL acts like it could go for another 162K. Not bad for a "car". I imagine the Traverse and its sisters should be able to do about the same... despite the disadvantage of being GM products, lol. ;) Zing! Just think how many of this vehicle they would be selling if they still had Oldsmobile, Pontiac, SAAB, Saturn, Hummer etc. to prostitute the platform with badge engineering. What's wrong with badge engineering ? Back in the 1960's my uncle and dad bought a new 1968 Mercury M 250 as their shop truck. It was exactly the same as a '68 Ford F 250 and both would do the job. It didn't matter whether it had a Mercury or Ford nameplate. It was a great truck...even though you might dismiss our old Merc, because it was badge engineered. I don't understand your concern.

RE: Looks like the daughter's new Flex is going in the shop

FORD RECALL The Ford bashers should be happy. Does she use it as a "tow vehicle" ? Who cares whether she uses it as a tow vehicle. It can be used as a tow vehicle and that's important for Flex owners....who tow and use this forum as a resource...to be aware of this recall and have it fixed. Correct ?

RE: My "new" car. 1963 Nova SS

My first new car was a 1965 Chevy II Nova with 327 V8 4-speed. Here is a photo of it after I installed Hooker fenderwell exit headers and drag raced it in D/S class in Alaska when I was in the US Army. https://farm7.staticflickr.com/6157/6233768833_acd7b545af_z.jpg Nice looking Chevy 11. Did you have the L-79....327....350 hp if my old memory serves me ?

RE: Lysol kills wasps!

Yes, Lysol 4 in 1 cleaner kills wasps! Well, actually, I guess nearly any soap solution will do the job... Apparently, the soap allows the water to get in the bug breathing vents, and they drown. We found a paper wasp nest inside the lid of a deck box where the grandkids' toys are stored. A quick spray with Lysol cleaner, and the wasps died. I was skeptical, after all, what can you believe on the internet, but it really works! Haven't tried it, but not surprised. We used to have an apple tree that would get mites on them. My wife would spray them with some kind of light soap spray....the name savon rings a bell. The soap spray would finish them off...think for the same reason as you indicated.

RE: My "new" car. 1963 Nova SS

Always liked the look. Some nice Chevy inline six performance parts there. A 292 Chevy inline six should fit in well. What a sleeper that would be ! Congrats on your new special interest car. Those older Chevy 11's and Nova's are very popular with the hot rod set. Great cars.

RE: Old tools/ equipment....do you collect ?

It is time to begin downsizing... My step-fathers old hand saws will go to the coming garage sale. If I can find the old Ford wrenches, they will go, also. The old "C" style valve spring compressor, and the reciprocating/advancing valve lapping tool can go, too. I am not sure about the old "armstrong" belly drills, though. Maybe I'll keep the best one of the two I have... I'm not sure about the old brace and augur bits, either. They should go, but maybe I'll keep them. The red lensed kerosene railroad lantern will probably go. The Coleman metal "suitcase" camp tables will go. One has three of the original stools (the fourth one should be around here somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it), the other doesn't have any of them. The Coleman 2-way (vertical or horizontal) metal cooler will go, as will the dual fuel Coleman mantle lantern My Grandmother's cast iron ware is not going anywhere! The remainder of my aircraft tools, mainly the stop countersink and cutters, will go, but I'm keeping the Clecos and Cleco pliers. And the safety wire pliers. The Semco manual sealant gun will go, if anybody recognizes what it is. I need to go through the toolbox again, and remove more stuff. Like the old Navy solid steel screwdriver with the wood grips that some sailor reground into a Dzus fastener tool, probably sometime in the 1950s. I will probably never see another Dzus fastener, and I don't want to regrind that thing again! I have some solid carbide reamers that were purchased for reworking the stainless steel engine mount barrels on a P2V-7 that I should get rid of, too. Nearly all of the corded electric power tools will go, and some of the air tools, as well as the gas engine powered air compressor. I'm rapidly closing on 75 years old, I should just get rid of the whole mess! But, I have to keep SOME tools, don't I?? If you have kids or nieces/nephews...check with them as to whether they may want some of these great old tools. As I mentioned before, I'm really glad that I still have some tools (two) from my Grandfather. Not sure how old they are, but they could be easily over 100 years old and the thought that he used them and supported his family, including my mother....puts these tools in high regard. Les

Old tools/ equipment....do you collect ?

I like old, well built and well thought out tools. My Irish Grandfather who immigrated to Canada in 1901, when he was 12 years old. He first lived with other family and started working at the Canadian Pacific Railway carpentry shops. Further school wasn’t an option for a poor Irish kid who had to earn his living. He eventually became a railway carpenter and acquired his own tools over the years. His tools were not power tools (too early), but were hand tools, which he painted the handles a particular shade of dark red…to ID them. I only have two tools of his now. One is a punch, the other a file. Both painted red on the tops. Both treasured. I wish I had them all. Any others out there who collect old tools ? Or any that have their old, family tools....women, men....carpentry, mechanics, baking, cooking, etc. ? Also, what's your story on how you got them and why you like them ?

RE: GM truck recall - yes another one

Odd thing is, GM sales (overall) are up over last year at this time. One theory is GM's proactive approach on all the recalls has boosted confidence with consumers who feel GM is not taking chances and is more concerned about safety than the other mfg's. Interesting result. I think you're on to something there Ron.

RE: GM truck recall - yes another one

WT...Just announced yesterday, another 7.6 million in recalls in US, 8.45 mil in NA http://finance.yahoo.com/news/gm-recalls-another-7-6-183406990.html Previously in this thread you indicated, the following and I quote: "I am not trying to assess anything, just wanted to see how many vehicles have been recalled this year by the different makers. All the ammo needed to do a hit piece on GM is already out there, I just want to see how others are fairing in comparison. " You indicate that: .." I am not trying to assess anything...and then you further state...."the ammo needed to do a hit piece on GM is already out there... " Is that the purpose of your posts ? To do 'hit pieces' on GM ? If so, why ?

RE: GM truck recall - yes another one

President and CEO of GM asked the President and CEO of Ford can he name reasons that Ford has been so successful. He replied "I don't recall". (Saw that one on a facebook joke page) Ford will have to, or they will be subject to huge fines. ;)
