I can relate, Smurf.  Yesterday I made it 10-12 miles at 20mph before I turned around and came back.  Icy ruts pulling the car all over, and twice pulled me onto the center line with semi's coming the other way.  Scary...

Sampson monitors are supposed to be here UPS tomorrow sometime.  I have to go do a network job at a school, so I won't get to try them out till Wednesday.  But I have some mixing to do, so I'll let y'all know how they work...

Crazy snow storm today.  Going to have to plow, shovel, and scoop.  And probably again tomorrow...  >:(

I know, right?  I used to climb right in there.  Not anymore.

Two years ago I had to pull the exhaust manifold and some other things just to get to the back 3 plugs on one of the cars just to do a tuneup.

I hear ya Joom...our old 1/2 tons you could climb in beside the engine and almost close the hood,,, now you have to almost remove the motor to change a fan belt lol

I've got a pile of tools and testers that weren't even thought of 50 years ago.  Aside from basic drive train axle stuff, you have to start with an OBD tester just to know what might be going on.

I've always said I'd love to have a 1965 'anything' in good shape to fix up and drive...

Things have definitely changed a lot from back in the day of simple carburetors and distributors with points, Buster.  I could fix most things on the road with a few tools.  Not any more...

You guys are doing well. The 1st car I owned I took out the engine and gearbox, removed all the parts, had the engine o'hauled, put it all back in, re-timed it and drove it away. The new truck, I can't name a single thing under the hood.

And yeah, garage and pole barn, both full of motorcycles and dirt bikes, mowers, and a ton of other crap.  Been promising myself to clean them out for a long time and give myself a work area...

Same here, Red.  Back in the 70's before I got into computers I was a licensed mechanic, and I still refuse to pay somebody else to do what I can do.  Most of the time...

I'm with you Joom. I do all our car maintenance, have a 3 car garage and can't park a single car in it.  :/

Only -2 here today, not too cold.  But just finished 3 hours laying on ice doing a front end alignment on one of the cars.  That got cold.  Really need to clean out the garage...

Oh, don't say that, G.  I've been blaming bad monitors for bad sounding tunes...  ::)

BotB 2017 Results!
« on: August 12, 2017, 08:56:50 PM »
What a competition it's been.....
There's been drama, comedy, sadness and outright farce....
Little bit of slapstick and a generous helping of laziness.....

And that's just the vote counting  :P

In the end there can be only one winner, one loser and one who's only purpose is to separate the two  :P

It was a roller coaster ride, first one band would sneak out in front, then another, then another.
Each band held the lead at different points and it went right down to the wire in the end.

We had 13 member votes and 7 non members votes for a total of 20, pretty good turnout! Well done!

So the moment the world has been waiting for......
The opening of the golden envelope....
The announcing of this years winner....
......will take place after the commercials!
See you in a few!

......

.....

.....

.....and we're back!

To recap:

What a competition it's been.....

Wait? What?

We're running out of time?
Ok, then......

In third place, with a gargantuan 42 points are....

The Deplorables!!

In second, with a whopping 40 points are The 4 States!!!

And your winner with an unbelievable 38 points(had to count them twice), the new holder of the Squashed Timmies Cup trophy........are......

The Hats!!!!

Big round of applause for The Hats, please!!

Yay!!!!
Woot woot!
Fix!
Huzzah!
Woooo!
Cheating bleeps!
Hurray!
Cowabunga!

I guess not everyone in the audience agrees with the results, but too bad....somebody voted for them  :P

Thank you and goodnight!
Stay tuned for scenes from the next "General Hospital".....

Good writeup, Neil, and well done on the tally.

And a big congrats to The Hats.  Nice win, guys, and nice song.  Congrats also to The Deplorables, great entry.

So 2017 is in the books.  I'm already looking forward to 2018, but still enjoying the 2017 hits...  (!:)

Congrats Hats!
Really good song you guys put together... was my top choice!  8)
And a nice job to 4 States!  :D

To my Deplorable partners... was a bit bittersweet to me. A little hectic at the end but was a solid effort by all!
Red I think your lyrics and vocals were spot on!
Smurf you carried so much of the weight
and Dino there's no song without your idea, playing, vocals and chops...
Thanks guys!
GC stay strong Brother You're a Cali guy... sooooo... Fight On!!! ~:)

Congrats Hats!  (!:) They were all very cool songs, but it went to the best dressed... ::)...as it should....... ;D

Jahva, it was a little hectic, but there was really no weight to carry, it is ALWAYS in good fun!  ~:) And I had a blast working with all of my band mates!  (-!)

Wow, how did we pull that out of the (ahem) hat.

Thanks to all my band mates. It was a struggle and I still don't know who played what or who wrote what (other than PapaG on vocal duty and Whitestrat mixed)😮

Unlucky to 4 states and the deplorables. Hope you had fun with it.

Thanks to all that voted.

And finallly a special mention to Neilmac for organising, orchestrating, managing and tallying.

Bragging rights? Nah that's not in our make up. Very close votes anyway. Tighter than a nuns....
