    The Powerball

    I agree. The ATCA people are just as nice as they can be. The ATHS people on the other hand- remember the pictures that I took at the Winchester show, in 2006 I believe, that Old Bill put on his website, with a link to the ATHS website? The guy that did their website I believe, can't remember his name, or I would damn sure say it, contacted me and said they wanted me AND Old Bill to come to Winchester the following year, they would pay for everything, and they wanted me to take the pictures for them again. I said "great", but I never heard another word about it. I e-mailed what's-his-name back later to ask about it, and he said something like "and who the hell are you?'' and pretty much suggested that I go have sex with myself. And when I sent truck show pictures to them for their website they would post them on the truck show page, but under that other guy's name, that I also can't remember, never giving the photographer credit. No big thing, but still, I took the pictures and took the time to send them, it just looked like they would mention that they were my pictures. I'm still a member because I do like the magazine, but as a group the ATHS can pound sand...or go have sex with themselves.

    Working at Home Depot Now

    I've never seen Mr. Mom either.
  4. The best, and most rugged, phone I ever had was my old Motorola flip phone. I finally got a smart phone, and I told the girl at the phone store ''I want one of them there Samsung phones that blow up periodically." She said "they don't do that anymore sir." But I got one anyway, because a guy showed me pictures that he had taken with his Samsung phone, and they looked as good as pictures i've taken with my Nikon camera. Maybe all phones take pictures that good now, I don't know, but that's what sold me on the Samsung.

    "BMT Investors" Bulletin Board

    I hauled a lot of coils from Armco, now AK Steel, in Middletown, Ohio to Modine in Buena Vista, Va. in the 80's. Ace Doran had a terminal on I-75 and we'd go there and trip lease to them whenever they had loads going to Modine or Walker Muffler in Harrisonburg, Va. They were an owner-operator company and their drivers didn't care for either load, because they didn't like to run Hawk's Nest, it was hard on brakes, tires, engines, nerves, and everything else, and it was too far to run the turnpike all the way to Princeton and then 460 to Blacksburg and all the way back up 81. So they were glad for us to take those loads, and we thought it was our lucky day to get one. We'd go right across 60, with no engine brakes- pretty much nobody had an engine brake then, especially in the east- no power steering, and very little horsepower. And it was fun then.

    I remember my Ma making dandelion wine, but I don't remember what it tasted like. She used to make the best wine I ever tasted, especially the grape.She also made cherry and blackberry wine, and she didn't drink at all.

    Jeep Finally Builds Wrangler-Based Pickup

    Well, you're right. In my opinion, the old Jeep CJ's were very capable off road vehicles but they tipped over a lot because you'd see lots of kids cruising down the interstate doing 70 mph in them, arms and legs hanging out, no seat belts used, because it was just cool to be seen in a Jeep, and they'd try to make a high speed maneuver and capsize. And- again, just my opinion- if you wanted a vehicle to cruise down the interstate at 70 mph, a Jeep CJ should not have been your vehicle of choice anyway. But, people did use them to run 70 mph. down the interstate, so Jeep made them lower, safer, more stable, which in turn made them a far less desirable off road vehicle.

    I agree. I don't mind it looking out the windshield, but I don't like it looking at me.

    We have them too, I keep a calendar- a booby calendar actually- in front of mines, at least partially blocking it. Some of the guys don't even try to be discreet about it, they just put tape over it. We have a guy that used to drive for a food company...can't remember the name, but they're all over. He ran two trips a night from Roanoke to Harrisonburg, and he said if the company saw them just pick the phone up and look at it they were fired. It's the same company that the union sued because they said driver facing cameras were an invasion of privacy, and the union won. But that was in Canada.

    Jeep Finally Builds Wrangler-Based Pickup

    Now this is bad-ass! I used to mud bog, and do some trail riding- AKA riding the local logging roads through the woods, creeks, and hills- and this looks like it would be pretty bullet-proof for doing all that, shouldn't have to worry about breaking an axle, that's for sure.

    One of the nicest Jeep pickups i've ever seen, with a Cummins diesel in it too. It was at Keystone Fence in Schaefferstown, Pa.

    Well, it wasn't the beer, she doesn't drink it. She was sipping some cranberry vodka though, that might have been what it was.😀

    You're right about that, and i've been seeing it more and more, driving after dark with no lights.
