    Roller Derby!!

    There was a group of young women in a formed up league of some sort skating on an outdoor slab in Bullhead. Not sure if it's still going, and I'm pretty sure they had time off in the hottest summer months.... If you're a big fan check with the rec and parks dept... Ray

    John Force and fear

    Coyle's infamous blower dyno comes to mind, and numerous improvements / safety measures surrounding the clutch assy. And then there are the years his car was used as a "Safety Safari Official Test Vehicle" for fires in the lights. Looks like you fall into the "hate him" category... I remember...

    John Force and fear

    Anyone remember his book? "I saw Elvis at 1000 feet"... Not a masterpiece by any means, but even in it's paperback type format it was informative at the time....I'm pretty sure John has one of those "love him or hate him" personalities...I remember back to Orange County John could be a prince...

    Canal blocked

    Anybody want an old 15’ Regatta?

    Thanks Ol Rigger. Your vast knowledge from the "back in the day" era of our sport/addiction seems to be unlimited. Sometimes I go back in time to the heyday of drag racing in So Cal. Just when I get to thinking "I was there", Ol Rigger comes along with the Marine side of those thoughts, and no...

    Anyone looking for Aqua swim steps?

    I too could use a swim step on my old Tahiti jet boat. Where are you / they located? I might be able to come and get them w/o any shipping fees.... Please call me if you still have any left. Ray 805 300 0012 PS I use to be able to just jump up out of the water to the deck, but alas, old age and...

    RIP Hank Aaron

    IMO...Hank is STILL the home run KING.... He did it with no drugs. He was one of the last "complete package" ball players...Too bad his "Hall of Fame" membership doesn't mean anything without Pete Rose also being a member... Ray

    Thoughts on Barrack Hussein Obama

    He will work very hard to make sure Biden takes away his title as "The worst President in American history" before Biden passes the POTUS title off to "Toes Up" pamala.... All three are total pieces of shit.. Ray
