    Bad Party In Newport Bay . . .

    I wonder if the extreme low tide this week caused it to sink. Walked around the island around 6:00 P.M. last night. Many large power boats on the sand, some laid over with struts and props on the beach. That much weight sitting on the ground can't be good. I would think a shaft log or rudder...

    Invisible house for sale

    It is pretty cool to look at. Driving through 29 palms yesterday, so we looked up the address and checked it out. Long poorly maintained road to get up to it. It really is invisible. Not sure it is worth eighteen million dollars though.

    Lost California mail-in ballots.

    I can't honestly say. I will study them at the next election. If I remember correctly, they simply say Federal Ballot across the top. I assume they are printed at the state level, as they match and work in the voting machines. I have also had younger people that were away from home in the...

    Lost California mail-in ballots.

    I volunteer and work at our local election polling place in Az. I am the ballot judge. ( give out the ballots, least skilled job ) Since we have snowbirds etc. that are not local Az. residents, many people only vote on federal ballots. All of the polls have federal ballots, that just have...

    New Diesel Truck

    Well State Farm was paying $ 52.00 per hour on steel trucks four years ago when I retired. They set the labor rate at $ 125.00 per hour on Ford aluminum trucks. You are correct nothing is welded on repairs for the new Fords. All glue and rivets. The rivet is a Ford only rivet, and the...

    New Diesel Truck

    The allowed labor rate to repair a Ford truck is almost double of other vehicles. Also, the body shop is supposed to have a separate space or dedicated repair area. Not allowed to have grinding chips from aluminum in the same area as steel. Technicians need to be certified by Ford or I-Car to...

    New Diesel Truck

    Not pay outs. Premiums are significantly higher on Fords than other brands of trucks. Repair costs are higher on Fords.

    Jeep also looks like a two door. Wish it was mine.

    New Diesel Truck

    I would check with your insurance carrier. Fords were running much higher on comp and collision.

    Anyone have experience with…. Truck total loss

    Depending on the insurance company, they will just have you sign a document saying that you agree to obtain a salvage certificate. The Toyota is already in your name, no need to go to DMV and get a salvage certificate on a perfectly good truck.

    Anyone have experience with…. Truck total loss

    I think it got into the core support. Upper tie bar will need replacing as well as the headlight mounting panel. Can't remember if toyota sells them separately or the whole assembly. Very repairable truck, I would buy it back and repair. Sold my body shop four years ago, or I would help out.

    whos ate at whiskey river

    I just can't see those prices in Parker. The atmosphere is not the best. I paid less at the Five Crowns in Newport last week for excellent steak at a beautiful restaurant.

    24 FT Daycruiser with torque converter eliminator

    Every ski boat with a velvet drive is basically an automatic transmission. They don't have torque converters and run for thousands of hours. Can't say I ever shifted my hallett daycruisers into reverse at forty miles an hour.🤣

    two stolen kawi side by side

    Actually the rates are set by the state, and local law enforcement not the tow company. Some countys ( Riverside) you have to go to the Sherriffs office and pay an administrative fee, and bring the receipt to the tow company before they can release the vehicle.

    It is probably a muddy mess. I would wait for it to dry out.

    Kids Orthodontist costs and advice

    I agree. Depending on where you live Algodones is a good option. I have a friend who took her daughter there once a month for a few years. Saved thousands, and she has beautiful straight teeth.
