    GOOGLE THIS:

    Posted on by

    A few years ago I took advantage of a ‘free’ google listing to help give my commercial operation Over The Hill Classic Trucks! some ‘search engine optimization’ thereby bypassing every East Indian nimrod with a cell phone who was promising top of the listing presence on google. For what it’s worth- some of the corporations… Read more »

    Best Left Unsaid:

    Posted on by

    In these days of political correctness, there are some words you just can’t use. Dropping long-standing team names because some snowflake made a squeak on social media is idiocy to me. It also strikes me that we are handing some people too much power to take things they did not earn. In this age, media… Read more »

    WTF?

    Posted on by

    TITS,TIRES, OR TECHNOLOGY: My brother once laid this on me shortly after his future ex-wife blew up the 400 engine in their Blazer. “If it has tits or tires- it will give you trouble.” My thinking was that he had neglected to check the oil in a good, long time. I’m thinking we ought to… Read more »

    2020

    Posted on by

    I can’t say how long it’s been since I last posted something here.  It’s been that kind of year.  In the last few years we have been warned about some ‘pandemic’ somewhere else in the world- which didn’t amount to shit.  This one is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish.  Started in a Chinese fish… Read more »

    GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD

    Posted on by

         My dad was well known for liking a good joke. One of those was a little figurine of a toilet. It had a lift up lid; on the underside was printed Goodbye Cruel World. In the bowl was a little man in the process of being flushed down the toilet.  As is often the… Read more »

    LABOUR DAY:

    Posted on by

    ONCE AGAIN: F&#K OFF.  I am Canadian, we spell it LABOUR- not labor.  So, take your spell cheque- make that spell check, and stick it where the sun don’t shine. Cheekiness aside, I have to be the only one who does not like long weekends? It could be the fact that I haven’t had a… Read more »

    SNOOZE- YOU LOSE

    Posted on by

    SNOOZE- YOU LOSE.  This oft heard phrase is most often in reference to being slow off the starting line in a DRAG RACE.  There are also those moments in life where one has ‘thought about it’ for too long.  One of those times happened in the last few days. A customer came out to the… Read more »

    CRUISE NIGHT

    Posted on by

    YOU may not have to be as ‘OLD’ as me to find some of our modern day events to be much watered down, compared to the historical event that it is supposed to represent.  Case in point: the ‘Cruise Night’.  While the weekly cruise night held in RED DEER, Alberta is a great draw for… Read more »

    STATISTICALLY SPEAKING

    Posted on by

    MAYBE IT’S JUST ME:  It seems that e-bay (kijiji) and Facebook keep stats if you have a page or are a registered seller.  In particular there is the response rate or time stat.  In my case, it is a couple of days- or never. You may wonder why. YOU may have noticed I can come… Read more »

    RUST VALLEY

    Posted on by

    HARD TO BELIEVE that someone like me could approach any subject with an open mind.  If you caught my Facebook post, you saw that I called Rust Valley Restorations a “train wreck”.  In this particular instance, any publicity is good publicity. SOME OF YOU may remember a posting shared on Face Book of a cache… Read more »
