I haven’t posted, or even visited Oppo, in a year and a half. Too much shit posting and politics at the time. If you wrote a post, it would be shit-posted into oblivion within 30 minutes, so what’s the point? Read more

This is very true, and it pisses me off. In my state, you pay sales tax on the sticker price regardless of what you actually paid for the car. I can’t stand these overinflated sticker prices and it’s one of the reasons I avoid new cars. Delivery, gas guzzler, documentation fees, etc, are all items you avoid or pay a Read more

I’m currently replacing the stairs on my front porch.  Not having stairs pretty much solves this issue.  I may never get around to replacing them.

As a small business owner, I’m fairly happy with this year’s taxes. A bit more breathing room, all being plowed back into the business while the gettin's good.

They are all the same age/brand etc. But one does lose pressure over time, and my wife isn't the best at topping it off. I did notice it gets better when I fill it up.

I could add that my custom tile order for a fireplace surround is officially a week late. But that’s not too bad considering how busy every contractor is around here.

He’s lost 2 pounds since Christmas, so we've diagnosed him with the "dwindles".  (The vet can't find anything wrong with him without expensive testing).  Despite the weight loss, he seems as perky as ever.

Yup, they will extract all equity from GMG and toss the carcass onto the bankruptcy court. Expect all non revenue generating sites to be axed.

I did the exact same thing to a 8'x12' shed at our cottage. My uncle accidentally built it on the wrong side of the property line so I decided to move it instead of demolishing it. The Saab handled that one without a hitch. The neighbors were also quite amused.

About 15 years old. They didn’t add new sheathing, and the old sheathing was rotten in many places. I could pull much of it off by hand. Very sad to let these old structures rot away. The house is in similarly bad shape and the local historic preservation commission is recommending we bulldoze it. We’re currently Read more

I wondered about that.  There are a couple of threaded holes in the subframe around the oil pan that made it look like a cover should have been there.  The threads were corroded, so I assumed there was a fastener in them at one point.

My parents had a van with one that ran 300k+ miles.  My brother and I both had HS cars with the 3.1 that were former salesman cars.  Meaning, they had a lot of miles on them.  Not really sure how many, the odometers broke.  Anyway, we beat the shit out of those cars for about 4 years each before they died.  No Read more

No regrets. Just lookup the changes they made to the ‘16 in case you might want to “upgrade”, like the exhaust modes. Read more
