I drive a ‘97 GMC Safari with a 4.3L V6. The accessory drive belt squeals. I replace the belt and not long after, it’ll begin squealing again. The service interval on those belts is long, if I’m not mistaken, and the current belt has fewer than 10k miles on it. I’ve stayed away from belt dressing products, but I find…
The Trump Tariff Layoffs Begin
A keg manufacturer lays off workers as domestic steel prices rise.
By The [Wall Street Journal] Editorial Board
American Keg Company is the only remaining U.S. manufacturer of stainless steel beer kegs. Despite competition from German and Chinese firms, American Keg has only used domestic…
Maybe for my birthday this year, I’ll rent something on Turo for a couple of days. F-Type Jag, or a Maserati Ghibli, or maybe an Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
Let’s get that much straight. A certain Oppo, who shall remain nameless, and who likes his brekkies, went to extreme lengths to disabuse me of the notion that English muffins were really the same thing as crumpets. Nope. This Oppo mailed me some crumpets from northern England, and they did not disappoint.
Charlie Freak had but one thing to call his own
Three weight ounce pure golden ring no precious stone
Five nights without a bite
No place to lay his head
And if nobody takes him in
He’ll soon be dead
On the street he spied my face I heard him hail
In our plot of frozen space he told his tale
Poor man, he showed his hand
π = 3.14
I want to install a video camera or two on my home; porch, front yard, etc. I want to use an actual DVR and POE cameras. 720p strikes me as plenty of pixels. What I’d like to find is something used on Craigslist, but I don’t know what to consider. Any suggestions?
All in a morning’s drive to work.
I’m a teacher. I don’t get paid to take a bullet for anyone. I also don’t get paid to take my revolver to work and address a shooter with it. I resent what this commentator, along with the editorial discretion of the local NPR station, would project upon me. A decision to put oneself at risk on behalf of another is a…
The ties that bind us as Americans are strong and durable, but the great challenges that formed them are receding into the past. Geographic differences create cultural differences, and cultural differences hasten ever-greater geographic change.
I decided to obtain a used engine for rebuilding purposes for my ‘71 GMC van. I was offered this freebie ‘62 that started life in a Chevy C-10 pickup. The engine had been sitting in the guy’s garage for TEN YEARS and even has its own slick little homemade cart. I took the day off and drove to Sacramento very early…
Robert Plant: Carry Fire (Live)
The NotPetya attack caused massive disruptions at companies as varied as the shipping company FedEx ($300 million in damages), drugmaker Merck ($310 million in damages), and the advertising firm WPP ($15 million in damages). It required the replacement of 45,000 computers and 4,000 servers at the cargo giant Maersk…
Some of my boy students smell like actual poop. And there’s a kid whose rotten sneakers smell so bad that once he walks by, the smell remains for five minutes.
Just making a few copies before my 8 o’clock class. I can’t imagine why the copier would ever mysteriously develop a torn off door or guts hanging out of it.
