  1. At 1:02 there is a wolf on the road around the curve in the upper left hand corner watching the fight.
  2. Early Fleetwood Mac (After Peter Green, Before Buckingham Nicks) were big fans of Buddy Holley as were most British groups at the time. the did a tribute to buddy on one of their albums called ""Buddy's Song", but on the same album they did a cover of a Donnie Brooks song from 1960, "Mission Bell" that was much better.
  3. I love that song. Back up singers include Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan on The Turtles.
  4. I never liked the 64 and later Falcons as much as teh earlier ones but that one is a beauty. All it needs is some baby moons on those chrome rims. Is it Looks like it has a V8 with the dual exhaust. I had a 63 sprint back in 1968 and it was only a 6 with three on the tree but I liked it a lot especially after I replaced the bias belted tires with radials which were new at the time. I also had a Muntz 4-track stereo in it and had some jazz tapes and some rock. Herbie Mann at the Village Gate, Charles Lloyd Waves The Grateful Dead first album Beatles 65 and Yellow submarine soundtrack. I liked the little Ranchero trucks, too.
  5. My new favorite song. "Short skirt/Long Jacket" The song was actually an "alternative rock" hit in 2001. By then I was losing interest in popular music and at the same time started listening to talk radio.
  6. Lesson # 1: Comparing a household budget to the federal budget. * U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000 --(Two trillion, one hundred seventy billion) * Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000 --(Three trillion, eight hundred twenty billion) * New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000 --(One trillion, six hundred fifty billion * National debt: $19,271,000,000,000 --(Nineteen trillion, two hundred seventy-one billion) * Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000 --(Thirty-eight billion, five hundred million) Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget: * Annual family income: $21,700 * Money the family spent: $38,200 * New debt on the credit card: $16,500 * Outstanding balance on the credit card: $192,710 * Total budget cuts so far: $385 Homework assignment for lesson One: If you spent half you income of $21,700.00, ($10,850.00) every year to pay off your debt of $192,710.00, how many years would it take to pay off your credit card debt? Hint: it would take more that 17 1/2 years as long as you didn't incur any new debt and lived on half your income for the next 17 and one half years. Note: $10,850.00 is considered well below poverty level for a single individual, and 21,700.00 is below the poverty level for a family of four. (National average: $12,880 per individual, $26,500 for a family of four. Lesson # 2 How much is a trillion? A trillion is a number beyond all human comprehension. How to visualize a trillion? It’s not like visualizing a million. It’s not even like visualizing a billion. If you spent $40 per second, around the clock, it would take you 289 days to exhaust a billion dollars. But if you did the same thing with a trillion dollars, it would take you 792.5 YEARS to go broke. Another way to visualize a trillion dollars is to figure out how many dollars would you have to print to make a trillion dollars and what would that look like? A trillion dollars laid end to end “would stretch for 96,906,656 miles, a distance farther than the distance of the earth from the sun.”
  7. That was very nice of someone to let you drive to the top while they were remodeling. I drove to the top in a '70 Chevelle. I didn't have any trouble making it to the top either even though it was only a 307 with a 2-barrel. It had been my 90 year old Grandmothers car but was a beautiful white 2 door hardtop with only 20,000 miles on it.
  8. I drove up to the top of Pike's Peak back in the early 90's and I didn't have any trouble breathing the thin air and my car didn't have any trouble making it to the top but anyone with diesel truck that wasn't turbocharged had a lot of black smoke coming out their exhaust and were losing power as they got near the top.
  9. Thanks. So the car must be a Buick. Probably a 58. But I think some extra chrome was added that didn't come that way from the factory like around the base of the steering column. beautiful color scheme on the interior, though, It would have looked good as a convertable with an all white exterior and a tan colored or even Black top.
  10. It's beautiful, but what is it? The automatic trans selector says Reverse, Neutral, Drive and G? --what does the G stand for, Go? Oldsmobiles had P, R, N, D, S, and L and the S stood for super. I'm guessing maybe this car is a late 50's Packard? I'd like to see pictures of the whole car.
  11. However, the Romans placed a great deal of value on being a citizen of Rome and to be a citizen you had to be born in Rome of at least one parent who was a Roman citizen.
  12. "Robin Williams' rider required that for every single event or film that he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work." That was nice of him, but I'm somewhat cynical, and I bet they had a hard time getting homeless people to do any work.
  13. But what about the last guy? There has to be that one guy that nobody has it worse than him.

  15. Where I live in the Great White North of Eastern Washington, The price of 50 pound bags of Rock salt and 50 pound bags chemical De-icer is pretty much the same but the chemical de-ice is so popular that prices ae competitive and sometims it's aactually chaper than rock salt. So where we deal with snow and ice on a regular basis, nobody uses rock salt which doesn't work as good and causes corrosion and damages the soil. and as far as pipes freezing, you have to let the water run a little bit at night and whenever you're not home and sometimes even when you are, and ometimes you have to do it with both hot and cold, which I learned the first winter I was a home owner. I alos learned that Pex pipeing is better in freezing temps than galvanized or copper or PVC because the Pex pipe can expand without breaking.
  16. A third of people with Covid were unvaccinated. Shouldn't the headline be, "Two-Thirds of all people who were vaccinated came down with Covid"?
  17. And I might add to that, Doctor Timothy Leary and Doogie Hauser M.D.
