RE: NASCAR at Daytona 4th of July weekend

I stayed up for the whole boring Francecar restrictor plate race. It was so exciting I did get three naps in before the wreck at the finish line. Dillon was very lucky his car hit the fence wheels first instead of roof first. Always good to see E jr win. Use to think it was boring. However, I have about 4-6 guys I really, really like and 4-6 guys I really, really hate. End of each lap I'm really, really happy or I'm really really pissed. Last night I was really, really happy most of the race. But, SOME folks think I'm really, really nuts staying up until 1:30 am (mt) watching NASCAR.

RE: Montana vs Open Range

You really have to read between the lines. Some folks have a "lot of trouble" but so think adjusting a loose shade, a door needing adjusted, cabinet knob coming off is a lot of trouble. They have to hook up and drive 200 miles that could be fixed by a ten year old. Go to each individual brands forum web site and get the real story.

If you didn't stay up you missed one great race.

RE: NASCAR at Daytona 4th of July weekend

RE: Booze and Fireworks Don't Mix

Thinning of the gene pool.

If your Honda has so little use I would just repair and use it. I don't know if they have changed that much in 15 years. If and when they go to fuel injection I would purchase a new one. Surprisingly they haven't done fuel injection. I bought a new Suzuki 20 hp out board motor with fuel injection and its manual start no battery. Starts and idles instantly, no chokes, most always first pull. No jet changing between 9000' CO and 300' AZ. Oh, two cylinder and only weighs about 95#.

RE: NASCAR at Daytona 4th of July weekend

What time is the big soccer game? Same time as Daytona. NASCAR ratings will probably be in the dumper. But I'll be watching with my finger on the previous channel button.

RE: NASCAR at Daytona 4th of July weekend

Any idea why they are running the Sprint race on Sunday night instead of Saturday? Unusual based on past history. Danica is good for the sport, and she does do well at the plate tracks, so who knows? I still hope Jr. or Brad wins. Bash me for Bad Brad, but he is the new Sr. and we all know it. The Goodwrench car took no prisoners and didn't give a Tinker's darn if you liked him or not. He was there to win. Brad was becoming the next intimidator but he toned it down after scrawny Matt put him in a headlock and Harvick tossed him into a dog fight. I kinda like him anyway, hope he cranks it up a couple of knotches.

RE: No more $5 HF 1 amp chargers

Couple of miles from one. Still got free multimeter testes in the package. They last forever so I give e'm away and become a hero. I have a meter I paid $40 and the HF meters read the same. You high Tech guys might have something better but the sure work good for me.

RE: NASCAR at Daytona 4th of July weekend

To bad they didn't use second qualifying. My girl could have brought on some exciting Danica bashing.

RE: Health Care Costs

My wife lost her insurance when affordable health care care to being. Now she has a policy that cost twice as much but thanks to you generous citizens you are picking up half the tab. THANK YOU!

Those Hondas don't like sitting around doing nothing. Never had a motor that sensitive. Clean carb, put in fresh fuel with Sta-bil. Run often with fresh fuel.

RE: Montana vs Open Range

Had neither, but I would prefer the OR.

RE: Harbor Freight 45 Watt Solar Kit

Mine came with a factory install 55w maintainer. I just changed the batteries a couple of months ago. There install date was September 07. Never shut the power off or charge them while in storage, which is several months. Boondocked a few times, no inverter and just ran the Honda to watch TV. Plenty of power for lights and water pump plus setting up and running the slides in and out. Seems to me it's doing its job.

RE: Other State Registration

Cheat state out of taxes?? It should a felony the the way some states rob taxpayers for taxes, license, and fees compared to other states. Our county has a glut of oil money but our roads are the worst in the state. Where does the money go?

RE: How old is your fifth-wheel?

Sold my "11" trailer and bought the "08". You would be surprised at the amount of older NuWa's still on the road. Not real fancy by today's standard but rock solid. Except for those stinking decals!

RE: CFL bulbs

BUT, they flicker when I touch the bulb and quit when I pull my finger away. NEWS FLASH: Almost every person walks around with some kind of electrostatic charge on their body. Sometimes it's more and sometimes less depending on conditions. IF you could grab a good ground with one hand, chances are that the other hand then would NOT make the bulb glow. NEWS FLASH: grabbed a ground bulb flashed. I'm magic LOL. Gotta be the old style timer that was mentioned in a post way back.

RE: Scary New Credit Card

My new Visa is chipped. Most of the stores aren't set up for e'm. Except Walmart, the scam artists favorite store. Problem with those cards is you have to leave them in the machine until the transaction is done. I'm use to swiping and putting back in my wallet. I can see lots of folks leaving them in the machine

RE: CFL bulbs

Bulbs quit flickering even when I manually turned them on and off. BUT, they flicker when I touch the bulb and quit when I pull my finger away. I must be magic or someone special OR got a problem with what ever you guys have been arguing about. LOL
