  1. I didn’t hear “game changer” once.
  2. A pizza Sub sandwich from 7-11, loaded with pickled Jalapeno peppers from the condiment rack.
  3. Bullshit. Nobody is giving Ice Cube $9mil to make another Friday movie.
  4. No frost in the ground here. Forecast predicts a max of 6 inches of snow in the next 2 weeks. Not sure that my sleds will see snow this season.
  5. Local township went to a 4 day work week. 4-10's either Mon-Thur or Tues-Fri, rotated every 2 weeks. So now the township office is at half staff 2 days out of the week....lol These people couldn't get shit done when they were working 5 days a week. This kind of talk is hard to understand when you've been working 60 hours or more per week for most of your life. In my business, we have had a hard time hiring new people or getting people to stay. The wife says I need to split the shifts. Hire people to work 30 hours per week but to hire 2 people for each position. It do
  6. Couple of steaks for tomorrow’s dinner for my son and I. Prices are getting out of hand. I should have dug through the freezer for another package from 2 weeks earlier.
  7. 2 more calls this afternoon after posting above. That makes 5 for today. New high score.
  8. Ttt What the hell is going on with these phone scammers? Since the Covid restrictions have lifted, the scammers are back out in full force and I think they have drastically multiplied. Since early December I’ve been getting at least 3-4 calls per week. And in the last 2 weeks, up to 3 calls per day. It’s driving me nuts. I have a business line and I need to answer my phone.
  9. Just watched The Black Stallion. Mickey Rooney, Terri Garr, directed by Francis Coppola. 1979. Great movie. Hard to believe its over 40 years old.
  10. Ya, Egr and DPF. Previous owner had it done at a shop right after he bought it. Only problem is he didn't buy a programmer. He just had the shop load in a tune for the deletes with a big hp tow set up. Its got big jump off the line and she'll puff black smoke anytime you go a bit extra. And it has an annoying trans shift at 55mph. Upshifts and downshifts on speed, not throttle position so when you try to drive 55 it is constantly up and down, up and down, etc. I have to go see my buddy who owns a Ford Superduty repair shop and see if he can restore it to stock then put a pr
  11. I haven’t had deer at my feeder since April but tonight I have 2 bucks.
  12. You would think an ‘08 would be that dated but the truck didn’t come with Bluetooth. Added an Alpine double din head unit to fix that. Also added a tailgate handle with rear view camera. Wired it to one of the upfitter switches so I can turn it on when I want. Retained my steer wheel controls, added SiriusXM module and the sound works with the factory sub. Everything plug and play with matching connectors to factory. Amazing what they have available these days…..lol A wash and a wax and moved it out of the shop for the next project. Debating what to do with those
  13. Doing a small brisket. Wife had it in the freeze. It’s only 5 lbs, just the flat. Not sure how this will work as it’s not even 1.5 inch thick. I’ll probably turn it in to a brick. picked up a welding blanket yesterday. Giving that a try too.
  14. Cardboard pile was taking over my shop. Good thing there is no snow blocking the fire pit. 2 inches on the ground here. Couldn’t even see the fire pit 2 weeks ago. From the camera today.
