What’s Happening? Part 2

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

Near the end of last year my company was looking for new people to help build our antennas.  I was thinking our son-in-law Patrick was a smart person who learned quickly so I talked to my boss about bringing him in to see if he would be able to help.  He started around the beginning […]

New Car

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

We’ve had the Hyundai Sonata since 2004 and Betty figured it was time to replace it. We were thinking about getting another Hyundai but then Daryl mentioned that we should take a look at the Toyota Camry Hybrid. It’s the top rated Sedan on CR now with a 93. The only vehicle above it is […]

Fontana, take 2

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

This coming Saturday we are heading out to Fontana Raceway again but this time it’s to watch some drag races. They are holding the NHRA Heritage Series Nostalgia Drags. I’m not sure what I’m going to see but I’m taking my camera and will post pics afterwards. Click here to see the info on it.

They typically run low 7 seconds to high 6 seconds. And here’s a couple of Pro Stock cars. These […]

Driving Museum

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

Today Betty and I went to the Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo. I know about it because my boss held an anniversary party for 6 people there last month. They have around 60 cars and they pretty much all run. On Sundays you can get a ride in one of the vehicles they have […]

Can you say mid-life crisis?

Sunday, October 23rd, 2005

Sure, I knew you could. The Mazda didn’t work out but I did learn a valuble lesson. You would think at 51 I would have already learned it but obviously not. The Mazda started losing oil pressure at idle when it got warm. It didn’t do that when I first bought it so I’m pretty […]
