    Some Funny Headlines!

    Man Kills Self Before Shooting Wife and Daughter 
    This one I caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this.

    It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!!

    They put in a correction the next day.


    I just couldn't help but send this along. Too funny.

    Did I read that right?

    Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread the stupidity and send this to someone you want to bring a smile to (maybe even a chuckle). We all need a good laugh, at least once a day !

    Road trip time? Mini-vacation if you can afford the time away.

    Just saw that part is listed for a little over $1000! If you can't find a private seller, maybe setup a search on ebay to see if you can find one closer to home.

    From my Comics Pusher -

    A golfer walks into the pro shop at the local course and asks the golf pro if they sell ball markers.

    The golf pro says they do, and they are $1.00.

    The guy gives the golf pro a dollar.

    The golf pro opens the register, puts the dollar in, and hands him a dime to use as the marker.

    This economic model is also used by the federal government.

    I've used pre-printed rubber magnetic labels for years. They can be found in many hardware stores or online and on ebay or Amazon. The one drawback to the pre-printed labels is you are limited by the labels you purchase in terms of sorting your tools. I'm now planning on trying magnetic label holders with a plastic label protector that accept blank card stock for maximum storage flexibility. These seem to be nicely priced for the quantity (…lack-Count/dp/B07WBWKJZ7/)

    I used a stainless 26" Tool chest/box combo that I got from Home Depot back about 10-11 years ago and finally gifted myself a 52" 18-drawer Craftsman combo chest last year using a combo of cash and gift cards. Now I'm slowly trying to sort thru my tools and trying to manage my tools so I can actually find what I need when I need it. I had been using a tall filing cabinet to store most of my power tools, but have gotten most of them moved into the 52" unit. Slow process, but I will be glad when I finally get everything sorted.

    Found these on NextDoor -

    stole this and just laughed.....

    1. When one door closes and another door opens, you are probably in prison.

    2. To me, "drink responsibly" means don't spill it.

    3. Age 60 might be the new 40, but 9:00 pm is the new midnight.

    4. It's the start of a brand new day, and I'm off like a herd of turtles.

    5. The older I get, the earlier it gets late.

    6. When I say, "The other day," I could be referring to any time between yesterday and 15 years ago.

    7. I remember being able to get up without making sound effects.

    8. I had my patience tested. I'm negative.

    9. Remember, if you lose a sock in the dryer, it comes back as a Tupperware lid that doesn't fit any of your containers.

    10. If you're sitting in public and a stranger takes the seat next to you, just stare straight ahead and say, "Did you bring the money?"

    11. When you ask me what I am doing today, and I say "nothing," it does not mean I am free. It means I am doing nothing.

    12. I finally got eight hours of sleep. It took me three days, but whatever.

    13. I run like the winded.

    14. I hate when a couple argues in public, and I missed the beginning and don't know whose side I'm on.

    15. When someone asks what I did over the weekend, I squint and ask, "Why, what did you hear?"

    16. When you do squats, are your knees supposed to sound like a goat chewing on an aluminum can stuffed with celery?

    17. I don't mean to interrupt people. I just randomly remember things and get really excited.

    18. When I ask for directions, please don't use words like "east."

    19. Don't bother walking a mile in my shoes. That would be boring. Spend 30 seconds in my head. That'll freak you right out.

    20. Sometimes, someone unexpected comes into your life out of nowhere, makes your heart race, and changes you forever. We call those people cops.

    21. My luck is like a bald guy who just won a comb.

    Will a doctor's note help!!!

    The process calls for my Doctor to fill out a medical history form, but doesn't allow him to offer any comment. Personally, I feel like I'm on trial w/o any opportunity for a defense. I'm tempted to fax them a short note expressing my feelings about what happened.

    I'm not sure if I remember correctly but for NJ the moped must have peddles and be under 49 cc in order to not need a license. Again, not sure if this is exact and of course TX may be different. Good luck in your quest. Hope you can make it back to the sling!

    Most states don't require a license for a moped as long as it can be pedaled and has a 49cc or smaller motor. I'm hoping I misread the Texas website.

    I thought about just buying a small scooter, but I think they require tags and registration which increases the need for a driver's license. Hopefully, Texas will let me keep my license!

    Found a lawyer's site here in Texas. He posted that E-bikes don't require license or insurance as long as tehy don't have motors larger than 750W and don't go faster than 28 mph. Naturally, the one I like has a 1000W motor and does over 30 mph, but has a range of 100+ miles with a dual-battery setup.

    CRAP! I had wondered about trying the newer angle drive, but went with the older model since the drive ratios were different! Hopefully, I won't have any trouble with the new unit.

    MY old angle drive was making a lot of noise, but if anyone is interested in trying to get it rebuilt like a normal differential, I'll let it go for shipping costs. PM me if interested and I can figure out the shipping costs. Of course, I'd also be willing to trade it for a 4-wheel kit!:S
