    Just my luck..... Delivering right now in the Boston Massachusetts area. Hopefully I'll be outta here in about two hours. Only problem is I've got to head directly into this winters first nor'easter. Heading from this location towards western PA. I should have about 7 hours of drive time...

    Notre Dame bound....

    I'm not sure where I originally posted about my daughter's NCAA career but I thought I'd post this little story and update of her career in track and field. A little background on this. About 5 years ago she became the one and only state champion of any type for her high school in track and...

    ATSC 3.0 OTA TV - The New Standard

    I'm sure most on here don't care about this upcoming change but for those that still grab a signal from that antenna on their roof, this is as big a change as the move was to digital television. Remember the day that your television tuners became obsolete? Deja Vu all over again. Over time...

    Blocking autoplay of videos on CNN

    Does anyone know how to block videos from automatically playing on their website? I'm only referring to the Google Chrome mobile edition. It sucks to be browsing the news only to have the freaking video play without selecting to do so. I've got autoplay turned off in my settings but somehow...

    Apple Products = POS

    Trying to simply install a free app from the app store and I have to enter a password on my completely unlocked iPad. Only thing is, it's been so dang long since I entered my Apple password, I no longer remember what it is. Simple right, choose the 'Forgot Password' option. If only. I can't...

    I need a hat, a chain for my wallet & a can of snuff.

    Graduated my CDL training today! I was part of a mass lay-off the end of last November. This after 25 years at that particular job. 10 years in the same field prior to that. One thing that I found over those 35 years is that I was no longer qualified for the job that I had been doing in...

    MRN Radio app..... Gone?

    I got a new phone last December. I just went to download the MRN Radio app and no longer see it as an option. I'm going to be traveling during the race Sunday and I'd like to find a MRN source that I can listen to over my phone so I don't have to keep searching for channels as I drive. If...

    Diesel filters

    Not sure how many of you drive Diesel trucks but if you do, check out www.dieselfiltersonline.com sometime. I recently called the dealer to purchase an air filter for my 2017 F-250. They wanted just under $100 for a new filter. I looked at advance Auto and found an if brand for $80+. Was...

    Kris Kringle 300K

    Man, this holiday sure could use a better sport to watch than a day full of the NBA. God luv those of you that can be entertained by it, but man that's a lousy Christmas sport IMO. Why not an exhibition race? No points. Just for cold hard cash. Spare me the 'drivers need time with their...

    racing-forums.com Deathbed - Nascar section

    Might need to get the paddles out soon. This place is starting to flatline. It's a damn shame to watch this section degrade at its present rate. Hopefully it can last the off-season. Browsing here in recent days only gives me a greater appreciation for the job that @TexasRaceLady did all...

    Pandora or Spotify? Or, something else entirely?

    I'm a big fan of all kinds of music. I've subscribed to Pandora for years and just recently decided to give Spotify a try. I think I may be hooked. I don't know all the in and outs of it yet but I know enough to get around. Looks like I'm only one of ten followers of The Steel Wheels. Good...

    Black Friday 2018

    Anyone out there brave these stores for what seems to be an annual tradition? My wife and I used to when the kids were, well..... kids. Now, we don't go anywhere near these places if possible. That's not to say we don't take advantage of what this week has to offer. This is usually when we...

    Our new 5er

    After many months & miles of searching, my wife & I finally came to an agreement on what floorplan we liked. We ordered the Jayco 336FBOK model mid August. We went the 3+ hours on Saturday to pick it up at the dealer. So far, we've only towed it home and are now in the process of loading all...

    NFL’s Proposed National Anthem Rules - 15 Yards for Kneeling?

    Didn't want to pollute the official NFL 2018-2019 Thread with this stuff. I just thought it's interesting that it could come to this. https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/05/22/anthem-rules-kneeling-penalties-home-team-stay-locker-room-roger-goodell ATLANTA — On Tuesday, NFL owners put three hours...
