    I think my city does that with potholes as they seem to reappear after the next rain
  4. This is what stupid looks like

  5. Another Great Gone - Tim Conway

    RIP Barnacle Boy!
  6. Dream Time: What cars would you like to see modeled?

    Tuscan TVR...in 1/24 or 1/25 scale
  7. What diecast did you get today?

    Thanks to the perpetual road construction between home and Indianapolis, I was late for the open house at Greenlights corporate office. Managed to grab these for $20/each. The Yenko Camaro is missing a wiper......don't see anything damaged on the Trans am.
  8. What Did You Have for Dinner?

    Went to the Greenlights open house today. They had a food truck on site. This.....was.....awesome!!
  9. What Irked You Today?

    From the InterWeb yesterday: The pay gap at Citigroup, led by Michael Corbat since 2012, is the biggest among large U.S. banks. Corbat made $24.2 million last year, 486 times the median employee pay of $49,766. ...and companies wonder why they have high employee turnover.
  10. If you feel like a road trip, Greenlights (Northside of Indianapolis) is having their open house in a couple weeks (May 10th). Their warehouse sale is a great opportunity to get the ones that the local stores never get or end up as 'employee exclusives' (never make it to the store shelves). Their open 1/64 are usually $1 for plastic bottom and $2-3 for metal bases, 1/24 are $10, including trailers and 1/18 are $20. Last year I got the 1/18 Mad Max Ford Falcon for $20 (needs side mirrors) and a greenmachine trailer for $10 (needs back bumper)
  11. What did you see on the road today?

    Dayton Cars & Coffee Fiat (owner wasn't around so don't know the model or year) Pao Honda Beat Nissan Figaro
  12. Notre Dame Cathedral destroyed by fire

    Twenty two years ago, I managed an office building that had a similar wood system, built in the days before sprinklers and fire walls. Easter morning, 4am-ish (remember it well as my oldest was just two days old!), it took a direct hit from lightning and burned until the newspaper carrier saw it an called it in. 6a I got the call. From a mile away I could see the lights from the aerial truck! The only things left of the second floor of the building was a Steelcase desk and a file cabinet....the rest wasn't ash.....it was soot! (it burned that hot!)
  13. Myd Lyfe Crysis ?

    In the six months after turning 25, I had to get glasses (the names and numbers on the back of the jerseys of the hockey team were getting smaller and blurry), had the wisdom teeth cut out (three impacted) and had my knee scoped (torn meniscus play tennis)....30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 have been a walk in the park!
  14. What Pleased You Today!

    Blue Jackets won their first ever playoff series and to do it sweeping the President's Trophy winning Tampa Bay Lightning. Love Torts!! That man knows how to give a motivation speech. If you find one on-line from Game One that is unedited, don't play it work without headphones.
  15. Kids today...

    I used to work with a guy who did everything his father did including when he was in the professional world (bought a Buick as his dad had one....carried a briefcase as his dad carried one). I want both my boys to blaze the own trail and follow what they want. I encouraged both both in sports (both played basketball and baseball) as you learn teamwork and just want them to try new things (we only had rec baseball when I was a kid). When my now 22 year old was playing basketball around 7 or 8 years old, they had enough players for three teams when he started but only one by seventh grade. My 12 year old played baseball against a team this weekend that the other team had ONLY nine players and one didn't show so they had to take the "L". My son was sign up #9 for his baseball team and they acquired a few more so not in danger of having to being short for a game. ...and it drives my wife nuts with some of the off handed comments, but I've told them both that athletes get the hot girls.
