Off Topic Discussion / Something Interesting in the Election Campaign
« on: November 01, 2018, 06:40:08 AM »
It was very recently brought to my attention that in many of the televised campaign ads, the candidates are not mentioning their party affiliation. I suppose that on one hand, they're trying to draw attention to their past accomplishments or future goals. OR, depending on your point of view, they're trying to distance themselves from other members of their political party. Personally, if I were a candidate for public office, I wouldn't want to be associated with Schumer, Gillibrand, Pelosi, Waters, etc, either......

Off Topic Discussion / Mid-term Elections
« on: October 23, 2018, 07:55:27 AM »
I don't want to start any sort of mud-slinging here, so I'll keep it brief.....

Unless I'm dead wrong, it appears that many of the posters here, are a pretty "conservative" bunch, if you know what I mean. Therefore, I'm urging all of you to get out and vote, in the upcoming mid-term elections. The liberals seem to be determined to tear down the long standing traditions of our great country, and unless we vote for representatives that share our values, we could be in trouble for generations to come.

This election, and the 2020 Presidential election, could be the most important elections in our lifetimes. Please, don't sit home, and then later be upset about how things turned out. Do the right thing, and vote!!

Off Topic Discussion / Garage Floor Epoxy Coatings
« on: September 05, 2018, 11:34:06 AM »
I'm looking into having my garage floor professionally coated with an epoxy finish. I initially applied a coating about 16-18 years ago, myself, and it's no longer in good shape. Am in the process of getting estimates. Anybody recommend an installer and/or good brand of epoxy paint?

Thanks!

Off Topic Discussion / This is ABSURD!!
« on: August 25, 2018, 07:59:06 AM »
I don't know whether to post this here or in the racing section, but to be safe, I'll do it here. IT'S ABOUT "PC" GONE HAYWIRE...

It was just published, this morning, in the Rochester, NY 'D&C' newspaper's sports section, that the drug company 'Lilly', was pulling it's logos and sponsorship from driver Connor Daly's Infinity series car, in the Road America race. Why, you ask??

Because 30 YEARS AGO, long before Connor was even born, his father, well known racer Derek Daly, made some "racially insensitive" remarks during a radio interview. WHAT???

Have we become so overly sensitive, that absolutely anything and everything we say, over the course of our entire lives, gets stored away, ready to be dragged up at a moment's notice, to be thrown in our faces? Does this mean that people are no longer allowed to make a mistake, but learn from it? Does this mean that if my grandfather (who died before I was born, by the way), 100 years ago, called somebody a "lazy, no good, thief", that A) someone TODAY can find it offensive; and B) worse yet, use it against ME?? If so, I think we, as a society, are in BIG trouble!!

Off Topic Discussion / You know you're from Rochester, when....
« on: August 02, 2018, 06:58:22 AM »
 

You Know You're From Rochester, NY When...

The only thing at the annual May Lilac Festival is snow.
The worst four-letter word you could say is "Fuji".
You can't swim at the beach.
You thought that you had figured out that alternate-parking thing, but wind up with a ticket anyway.

Toronto is about 70 miles away, but it takes four hours to get there.

The name "Greater Rochester International Airport" is bigger than the airport itself.

There's an 800 number to report a pothole in the road.
You know that a "Can of Worms" is not something that you take fishing. Your baby's first word is "Wegmans".

You ask lifetime residents where the George Eastman House is, but they don't know either.

In a city where it snows at least 90 inches a year, they build a new sports stadium with no roof on it.

It can be 70 degrees one day, below freezing the next, and you think nothing of it.

Your mother is buying outfits to wear to Wegmans.
Your low-fat diet is never low enough to exclude an Abbott's custard.

You order a white hot and a pop, and the counterman knows what you're talking about.

You can travel from Egypt to Greece in about a half-hour by car.

D&C is a newspaper, not a medical procedure.
There are no hamburgers, only ground steak.
You can go to any mall on a Saturday and see at least 5 people you either work with, went to school with or dated.

A musical comes to town 10 years after its Broadway premier and the entire town goes nuts!

You awaken from a deep sleep, look at the clock and see that it's 6:00, but you have no idea whether it's AM or PM.

When 18+ inches of snow falls overnight, but you never thought of NOT going to work.

You are perplexed when friends from other cities come to visit and want to "see the sights".

In winter if the temperature hits 45 degrees and the sun comes out, people walk around downtown wearing shades and no jackets.

There are places at the poles that seem to get more sunlight during the winter months than we do.

Wegmans is somewhere to go on a Friday night, for entertainment.

You know who Vinnie and Angelo are.
You define summer as three months of bad sledding.
You think that people from Pennsylvania have an accent.
Halloween is snowed out with great regularity.
You have experienced frostbite and sunburn in the same week.
Half the change in your pocket is Canadian, eh.

Your idea of a seven-course meal is a six pack of Genny and a bucket of Buffalo wings.
You believe that "down south" means Maryland.
Your snowmobile, lawn mower and fishing boat all have big block Chevy engines.

You can compare Nick Tahoe's garbage plate to at least 3 other knock-offs in competing restaurants.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Rochester, NY

Off Topic Discussion / A lawyer dies....
« on: July 18, 2018, 08:15:36 AM »
 A lawyer, 39 years of age, died suddenly and found himself before St. Peter and the Judgement Seat. Peter began, "Well, let's us see where you will be sent . . .

The lawyer interrupted and said, "Before you do that, and I think I know where I'm going anyway, I'd like to ask why I died so young."

St. Peter said, "We show that you are ninety years old."

The lawyer said, "That's wrong. I am 39."

St. Peter said, "Oh, we didn't use the calendar. We counted up all your billed hours to your clients."

Racing Discussion / Very sad news....Maynard Troyer passes
« on: May 10, 2018, 07:17:41 PM »
Reports from the "speed51" website, as well as FaceBook, are that modified racing legend, Maynard Troyer, has passed away, at the age of 79.

If this is indeed true, sincerest condolences to his family.

Racing Discussion / The Crummy Weather
« on: April 01, 2018, 11:44:17 AM »
I don't know if it's true or not, but I heard a rumor that the Easter Bunny saw his shadow this morning. That means 6 more weeks of cold weather!!



Just a joke, of course (I hope!!!), and Happy Easter to all.

Off Topic Discussion / Danica at Daytona
« on: February 13, 2018, 09:11:10 AM »
A priest, a rabbi and a man with a dog walk into a bar.

 The race is on the TV and when the announcer says Danica is up to 25th the dog jumps up and runs around the bar 25 times.

 Awhile later they annonce that Danica is up to 10th, and the dog races around the bar 10 times.

 After awhile they announce Danica's up to 3rd and the dog races around the bar 3 times.

 The bartender sez That's amazing! What'll he do if Danica wins?

 And the man says I dunno, I've only had him for seven years.

Off Topic Discussion / The Ventriloquist Touring Sweden...........
« on: January 30, 2018, 03:18:19 PM »
                            A young ventriloquist is touring Sweden. One night, he's doing a show in a small rural town. With his dummy on his knee, he starts going
                            through his customary dumb-blonde jokes.

                            Suddenly, a blonde woman in the fourth row stands on her chair and starts shouting, "I've heard enough of your stupid blonde jokes.

                            What makes you think you can stereotype Swedish blonde women that way?

                            What does the color of a woman's hair have to do with her worth as a human being?

                            It's men like you who keep women like me from being respected at work and in the community, and from reaching our full potential as  people.

                            It's people like you that make others think that all blondes are dumb!

                            You and your kind continue to perpetuate discrimination against not only blondes, but women in general... pathetically, all in the name of
                            humor!"

                            When the embarrassed ventriloquist begins to apologize, the blonde shouts... "You stay out of this! I'm talking to that little jackass on your lap!"

Off Topic Discussion / Super Bowl Tickets...
« on: January 25, 2018, 05:21:10 PM »

I know it's late notice, but a friend of  mine has two tickets for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis, MN at the new U. S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, February 4th. 

They are box seats and he paid $3,500 per ticket, which includes the ride to and from the airport, lunch, dinner, a $400.00 bar tab and a pass to the winners locker room after the game.  What he didn't realize when he bought them last year was that it's on the same day as his wedding. 



If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place.  It's at St. Paul's Church at 3 p.m.  Her name is Ashley.  She's 5'4", about 115 pounds, very pretty, a good cook, loves to fish and hunt and will clean your truck.  She'll be the one in the white dress.
