Today, trying to buy a big bottle of Cruzan rum for our beach trip.
Hey all, the wife and I are celebrating 15 years in October and wanted to plan a nice trip — just 4-7 days and preferably domestic for the simplicity and time commitment. Since Frontier flies nonstop from BHM-DEN a few times a week, I thought I’d take advantage of them for the first time (all the fancy stuff...checked…
I spent over a week trying to find a way to secure the bait so the raccoon couldn’t just sneak in and take it (without triggering the door closure). Every night it was the same story — food gone, trap wide open. Last night, I finally figured it out — use metal wire to fix the food to the floor so she* would have to…
This came out on Netflix at the end of May and I’ve already seen it twice. I can’t recommend it enough — I generally HATE anything resembling a Rom Com, but this one is also a solid comedy, as well as a Buddy Flick and an awkward coming-of-age drama at the same time.
Personally, I’ll stick with Alka Seltzer — tastes better and cures headaches and stomach aches, as well.
The National Coalition of Sport Car Culture and Heritage, or NCSCCH, issued a statement Tuesday evening condemning the Toyota Camry’s current generation – in certain trims – for allegedly appropriating traditional sports car styling cues and design elements like a black roof, quad-tipped exhaust, large wheels, as well…

In moves that have already been challenged by the Federal Trade Commission and American Civil Liberties Union, more than seven US states have declared that concept vehicles – those in the earliest stages of design – must be seen through to production unless they are canceled very early in the process.
The Barber Historics was a very quiet Sunday, but my son (8), dad (71) and I (??) got to enjoy a breeze to help offset the mid-80s mugginess. There’s some decent carspotting in the background here, too:
Actress Alyssa Milano, best known for her role as the abducted daughter in the 1984 Arnold Schwarzenegger action film Commando, is calling for movie and TV actors to boycott Georgia over what she believes is an obnoxious and unsafe car culture.
Subaru Motors was honored at the National Association of Transmission Awareness (NATA) Wednesday with an award celebrating their work towards encouraging acceptance of the Continuously Variable Transmission, or CVT.
Ancestry.com, in conjunction with Indiana-based Blackstone Laboratories, recently unveiled a groundbreaking series of genealogy tests for vehicles to give their owners a more detailed look at their cars’ lineage. For many customers, such tests can provide them valuable, interesting insights into aspects of their car’s…
Laguna Niguel, California, entrepreneur Stacy Watkins never imagined she’d be at the center of nationwide attention.
My old man just sent me this one — he was a young flight instructor (21 years old) in New Jersey when he saw a fireball on the ground ahead and requested to be redirected from Atlantic City to Cape May. His student was wearing an IFR hood and wasn’t able to see out of their plane, which is probably good.
The above article (LINK if Kinja’d) sums up my feelings on twitter and social media pretty nicely. Worth a read, but here are a few tl;dr excerpts:
Over the past several years, auto mechanics have reported a troubling resurgence in mechanical and electric failures that many believed had been eradicated decades ago. Critics blame this trend on widespread misinformation campaigns, especially on social media, that lead car owners to believe that preventive…
Late Monday afternoon, a vehicle fire suddenly broke out on Paris’s famous Ile de la Cite. Fire brigades were quickly on the scene and, after several hours of work into the evening, were finally able to declare the car – a classic Citroen — salvageable.
Taken by my dad this morning — all three belong to technicians at the Audi dealership.
Louisiana marine biologists dropped a gator carcass into 7,000 feet of Gulf of Mexico goodness. It gets disembowled by giant roly polies. No thanks.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you that hanging a big-ass rope 23’ off the ground is easy. Just a small price to pay to intimidate my neighbors...with how ripped I’m about to get!
