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....

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."

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.

Off Topic Discussion / A message from Charlie Krauthammer
« on: October 26, 2017, 10:22:44 AM »
A friend e-mailed this to me today. I thought I'd share it........


Wonder why this is not considered SUBVERSION

In case you have not learned about this, please read this very important, intelligently written, true account of what is happening in our Democracy daily!

A somewhat long read but an eye opener.....


By Charles Krauthhammer

 New York Post:

I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy
established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in
history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for Action" (OFA).

OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our
current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization
goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?

If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!

Our ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's top dogs over to Organizing for Action.

OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the
resistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing across
America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.

OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for "progressive" change.
Its issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual
equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform.

OFA members were propped up by the ex-president's message from the shadows: "Organizing is the building block of everything great we have accomplished Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond."

OFA's website says it obtained its "digital" assets from the
ex-president's re-election effort and that he inspired the movement.
In short, it is the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic we know as AMERICA.

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says, “The OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House."

Sperry writes that, “The ex-president is setting up a shadow
government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that the OFA has 32,525 (and growing) volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office in Washington DC.

Think about how this works.. For example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; the OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; the ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action in support of these activities; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; and violence follows. All of this happens from the ex-president's signal that he is heartened by the protests.

If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.

If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.

So, do your part. You have read it, so at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a "PERFECT TARGET" for our enemy!

According to some newly released information, regarding the Harvey Weinstein debacle, it appears that he liked to contribute to political campaigns/politicians. Among the better known, on his list of contribution receptors were:
1)Elizabeth Warren, the self-proclaimed, "Native American" candidate in the 2016 Presidential election;
2)New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, a well known, Democratic "rabble rouser";
3)Nevada Senator, Harry Reid....he needs no introduction;
4)Former President (UGH!!!) Barack Obama;
5)Hillary (I NEVER refused a contribution) Clinton;
6)Our very own State Senator, Chuck Schumer.......we're SO proud of him!

Racing Discussion / Department of HUH???
« on: September 17, 2017, 06:13:36 PM »
I just finished watching the NASCAR race from Chicago (great win, "east coast modified graduate", Marty Truex!!), and during the race, the NBC commentators were discussing Stewart-Haas' decision to cut Danica loose. The commentators were saying that the way she first talked about this development, they interpreted it as she was "retiring" from racing.

She then clarified it, and stated that she meant that she didn't want to continue UNLESS she could secure a competitive ride.

HUH??

She's had "competitive rides" for the last 5-6 years, ever since she came to NASCAR, and if she finishes 15th, for her it's a great day............
