Feb 13th 2011 7:38AM I have been watching racing and working at tracks since the early 1950's. The 29 in my screenname is for Nelson Stacy's Holman-Moody number in NASCAR. Racing is supposed to be a car driver and team against the others out there. I'm more than familiar with "rubbing is racing" and this was not it. Joey Chitwood could only come around once a year and draw a crowd and that will be more than enough for this form of racing also. If it's like this at the mile-and-a-halfs it's really going to be a mess.
Nov 23rd 2010 5:41PM I'm sure that my cat, Lucy, would have been the first to say that dogs were smarter. Of course, she kept every dog in the neighborhood in line with a swat to the nose with her claws out. Every dog, big or small, stayed out of her way. Now who is really smarter?
Sep 4th 2010 8:04AM I believe that the author made an error or was not clear in the section about snaking a drain. If you are trying to clean out a clog in a drain line, you use an auger. This is what is called a snake by most people. The ones that are 20 or 25 feet long will reach most clogs, Have lots of rags or paper towels handy if you use one because they are messy when you pull them out. A closet auger is a special kind of snake that is used to remove clogs in a water closet. This is what most people now call a toilet or commode. The porcelain toilet in your house has a P-trap built in. The closet auger is made to get out things clogging that P-trap. If you have young kids in the house, the odds are good that you will need a closet auger at some time. This may well be soon after a kid has used a toy boat in the toilet to play "submarine". If the closet auger does not work to clear the trap, you will probably have to proceed with a variation on changing a wax ring or call the plumber.
Jul 9th 2010 8:56AM The Mystery Spot is only there to get you ready for the real excitement of visiting Da Yooper Tourist Trap and Museum- http://www.dayoopers.com/thetrap.html That is a great place to visit after a long ride in the car. The scenery in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is great with plenty of waterfalls and Bald Eagles but you need to stock up on bumper stickers and coffee cups before you venture into the wild! Any place with the world's biggest chainsaw has got to be cool.
May 29th 2010 7:59AM After reading the comments here, it becomes obvious why companies move to Mexico or Asia. Most industries with the labor history of the auto industry have life insurance plans for their employees. Why should the company have to pay more because an accidental death happened at the workplace? Or do they not have life insurance in Ontario?
And for those of you who want to yell and scream about losing jobs in the USA and Canada, look at the labels in your clothes first. If even a few DON"T say they were made in Central or South America or Asia, you MAY have a place to complain.
May 28th 2010 8:17AM It's too bad that one of the TV crew did not sit in one of the cars during the interview so they could have been ticketed for no seat belt or started up one of the cars and, if they didn't have the pink slip and proof of insurance, ticketed or arrested.
Please keep it up, Santa Monica. We want the movie business in Michigan.
May 28th 2010 7:05AM Seems to me that GM controls everything that their agency does and a problem with an agency is really a problem in GM. This typical fiasco reminds me of the line from "Cool Hand Luke" where Strother Martin says "What we have here, is a failure to commun'cate."
May 21st 2010 10:23AM If 40 per cent of adults 30 and over use social networking sites as the article says, who would possibly have time to read more than a few comments. Of those, who would care enough to react to one bad comment about a company. Brixx Pizza is not in our area but they did succeed in getting bad national publicity. This is not too smart IMHO.
May 15th 2010 4:33PM Aaaaah, pardon me but did I say anything about PBPs?
May 15th 2010 7:36AM Do they have the picture of Bill France, Sr. with John Marcum and Charlie Finley? They were all important to the start of NASCAR. And I'm old enough that my favorite driver is still Nelson Stacy, who drove the Holman-Moody 29 car. Look him up in your NASCAR Annual for the late 1950's.
