I'd kind of like to give one of these a try.

Pizza might be better than some of the crap turned out around Monroe....  Sounds pretty good actually.

I see DJT has imposed tariff sanctions on steel and aluminum for Canada, Mexico and China to the tune of 25%.  Fine with me.  About time to start levelling the playing field.

NAFTA has to be one of the poorest deals this country ever got into.  Ranks right up there with the Iran anti-nuclear proliferation agreement.

Of course the heads of those countries are all screaming it's illegal (it's not) and it's protectionism (kind of) and it will lead to war (I doubt it).  Those countries have no issue with selling their goods here but when we try to sell there, we are hammered with tariff's.  Tit for tat now.

I've always heard that hookers and porn were expensive but never realized it ran into these kind of numbers!!!

Get your gas cap tested to cut down on air pollution
« Reply #5284 on: June 05, 2018, 10:05:56 AM »

They'll be doing the testing and giveaway at the Lambertville Kroger Fuel Center on August 2nd. 

My pickup doesn't have a thread on cap...

does it just let the fuel vapor leak out all the time?

This happens so often that you'd think it's intentional.

Property owners with deep, deep pockets don't want to pay to clean up their property after using it for decades to create tons of profits.

Suddenly they sell to an unknown (and frequently brand new) entity that has very shallow pockets.  A couple of years later the local municipality ends up foreclosing on the property and then getting big bucks from the fed$$$ to 'clean it up'! 

It's happened right here in the Monroe area several times and I doubt you could count the times it's happened in Toledo.

No problem though...

Fed$$$ are 'free' $$$ in lots of minds >:( >:( >:(

Decades ago (back in my high school days anyway) this was never an issue.  A full dress military uniform was accepted any place one might attend a 'fancy' affair.

Interesting the shear number of phone calls they get at central dispatch in a day. 

That translates to maybe a couple of dozen calls on the fire frequency so the rest must go to law enforcement.

There was a crash on I75 south just north of Nadeau Road just before 2 this afternoon. 

Just saw an MDOT tweet that there are still 2 lanes closed.  I looked on Google maps and it distinctly shows a line of backed up traffic.

Not too long after I posted this last night I heard Frenchtown clearing from the sight.  Then, within maybe a half hour they were dispatched back to what sounded close to the same site for a vehicle that had rolled over.  Not sure what is going on up there!

I had my personnel spend a short shift there to get an appreciation for the work they do... it was interesting to see the "other" end of the business.

The area's on both sides of the "canal" took some damages from the nearly 7 inches of rain...

Interesting to hear of sink holes,  probably wash outs vs what they have in Florida!
