    Bees - The not so friendly type

    Over the years I have bitched about a couple of bee hives at my horse property...and yesterday was eradication day! Two hives, the first hive is about 4-5 years old and was located inside a window jamb, the second hive was about 20-years old and housed in an old steel 55-gallon drum. Totally...

    No School = Surf's Up for the daughter and her genius Jeep idea...

    For the past several months we have been racking our brains trying to find surf racks for my daughter's Jeep. On a 2-door Jeep there is no rail on the hard top, and using soft racks for surfboards thru a single window does not offer enough support. We searched high and low and short of a cage...

    2-door used Jeep for $20K - possible, or not?

    My daughter wants a 2-dr Jeep Wrangler. Our budget is $20K. The only caveat is we don't want to buy something too old, so we're talking about a model year 2015 and newer. An older year with decent mileage is also possible. The Jeeps we've seen offered for sale by private parties seem priced too...

    The State has about eight hours to fire me...

    Otherwise, my 2-year probationary period is over and I can assume the role of a normal State employee and act like a turd! Kidding on acting like a turd part, but at least now I will be able to push back a little on their "performance goals" without fear of reprimand. Anybody else currently...

    Construction - New water service to a vacant parcel

    Hey Guys: We are adding water service to our vacant land. The City (Riverside) says no development plans required; pay us $15,000 and we'll put a meter in. They already determined a 1" line is required. Is it that simple, or am I missing something? Also, we do not have a "structure" per se...

    Brakes - Input Needed

    In the past, I've changed between 30-35 sets of brakes on vehicles I own. Brakes, rotors, calipers, hub assemblies, the usual stuff. But, I have never worked on wifey's Honda because well, you know how that goes. A couple of weeks ago we had the brakes done in her car at the local shop. We get...

    Cell Tower Guys and other Techies - Approximate location question

    I was impressed with responses I read in another post, so I was hoping to get some insight from the experts. Here the story… A digital document signing service provides the IP addresses of parties signing documents as a method to verify the location of the signing parties. I argue, what...

    Who Dat? RDP in Glen Avon this morning

    Yes, I'm lagging on my RDP sticker, but I gave you the "Shaka Bra" from the Infiniti with the Hallett sticker. :) I'm guessing Gelcoater or HardlySatisfied? That's my shortcut route to the 60 since the 15 thru Norco is all fuckered up with FastTrack construction.

    Automatic Watch Service - Where to go?

    I've never owned an automatic before and recently I acquired a nice Raymond Weil. It's a great looking watch, but an automatic. I own two other RW's, but not an auto. I know it's an older model (Parsifal), and I'm guessing it has never been serviced. I see the online services but most are out...

    Best Spray-On Wax for Cars?

    Let's hear it. What are you using, and why? I'm getting lazy as I get older. With that in mind, SPRAY ON, not clay bar or other methods, we can discuss those types later. Products to stay away from would also be helpful.

    Hey LAM...I got a Job after 20-years of being self-employed!

    Years ago, I jumped into my crappy Mazda pickup truck and scooted off to downtown Los Angeles to start a position as a private investigator trainee and process server. Twenty-eight years later (to the day), I waddled into my not-so-crappy car to start a new career as an Investigator with the...

    Suggestions on an Interview Question

    After 20 years of being self-employed, I am trying to break into a state job. I have an interview on Wednesday, and one of the items they are asking for is my last "performance review," which I do not have. Before I bought the company in 1996, I had worked there for 8 years. I had a similar...

    COPS giving me grief!

    This should get NGE fired up! For the longest time, my 2003 V10 Excursion had a sort of shift "bump." Not a slip, it was almost as if the shift points were off. The problem started in about 2007. I've been wrenching on the old gasser, trying to get her back to 100%. This includes...
