+Tim Young's post about pedal brights reminded me of an interesting car I had in college for a bit.  It was a 1971 Buick Skylark that I bought for $800. This is not a pic of that car, but it is exactly what it looked like, down to the 'funnel' hubcaps. It was absolutely enormous, this same horrible ugly green, and a total riot to drive.  It was the 'boring' 4 door version but the thing had a 350 in it and in that engine bay, that engine still looked small.  You could still pretty much climb inside with the engine.  It would go really fast in a straight line, but if you tried to turn, you'd feel like it was gonna bury a fender in the pavement. The car was so long it would only fit inside my parents garage with 3 inches to spare front-to-back.  

I could carry my entire dorm room contents (minus furniture) between the trunk and backseat.  

It got about 9 miles to the gallon if I was lucky and it was worthless in the snow/ice (which is really why I got rid of it in the end).  If you slowed down on a level snow-covered road, it was possible you'd never get going again.  I had to have a guy with a jeep give me a nudge once because there was just too much torque to get traction.

um... I'm pretty sure that's more racist than the way it was before... 
 
At the Fieldston Lower School, a $43,000 per year Riverdale institution, the administration sees racism everywhere. Just consider the “microaggressions” that have been uncovered.

According to the piece: “A girl puts her hands in another girl’s hair; a boy asks his Asian friend where he’s really from. A number of years ago, a white student in a fourth-grade biography unit delivered a presentation on Jackie Robinson while in blackface.”

Here’s a newsflash folks: This is not racism. It’s children being curious about the way their friends look and trying their best to look like an American hero.


If you want it to stop, you can tell them that it’s not appropriate to touch other people without their permission, that many people who look different were born in this country and that if you’re going to dress up as someone else you don’t have to change the color of your skin.

You want to know what real racism looks like? Try this. In response to these incidents, as well as a whole bunch of multi-culti-educational mumbo jumbo, Fieldston has decided to institute a policy of…segregation. Yes, that’s right. We have finally come full circle.
“Can racism be stopped in the third grade?” That’s the question asked in this week’s New York Magazine cover story by journalist Lisa Miller. The short answer, of course, is that it all depends on ...

Exactly +David Kowalski.  I did some reading and found the HuffPo article on this same issue, and it contained an interesting quote. 

"Because whiteness isn't always named and is treated as invisible and sort of the neutral norm in our society ... you have a situation where white children don't even necessarily know the word 'white' and know that they're white and know what the role of whiteness plays in terms of white privilege and power in our society," Feris said.

To me, this is saying that they will take children who may not even have a concept of how their skin color contributes to the way others perceive and treat them, not only gives them that concept, but teaches them that their actions must now be a certain way in order to be compatible with that knowledge.  I don't know this can't be considered racism.

Recommendations for a trip to Hawaii
Not me, a friend of mine. She asked me if I had ever been there and I said no, but I probably know some people who have. 

Anyone got tips for someone staying about a week? She's never been before, and will be renting a place.  Things to see? Things to avoid?  Best practices?  Anything is appreciated. 

Thanks in advance! 

attn +Dru Morgan since I think you've talked about this before.

This sums up my thoughts on the subject. We can't just try to think far enough to the solution to the immediate problem. We also have to think past the solution to see what problems the solution will create.

In the 1970s, when oil prices jumped, most liberals embraced a simple solution: price controls. It should be illegal, they thought, to sell oil or gasoline for more than a certain amount. Americans...

DragonHeart 3
Netflix thought I'd give this movie 1.3 stars, and while it didn't look like the best movie, I kinda took it as a dare, and I was surprised how much I liked it.

I've seen the first two, and while the first was decent, the second was very forgettable.  This one, I had very low expectations. The acting was better than I expected but the setting, costumes, and production values were definitely on the low side.  The dragon looks a little wierd, but later on, they do some effects with him that are really very good. His flight was actually really impressive.  Plus there were touches here and there that showed me they knew how to make the most of what they had.  There's a scene with a shadowy dragon flying a few feet above a mossy creek that was a 'throwaway scene' but was really well done. 

It reminded me of the sword & sorcery movies from the 80s, like Beastmaster, complete with rather contrived ending (which I find I didn't mind).  If you don't go in expecting too much, you might find you like this. 


+Kat Meredith - you were looking for a dragon movie a while back.  I think you'd like this.

Netflix assumed I would give Bill Nyes science show 4.5 I was not going to take that dare and preemptively gave it 1-star.

It's like Avengers, only with forbidden familial relationships, weightlifting grandmas, big league chew, and a pig roast.

Great film. Certain releases, including in America, removed "Laputa" from the title because, apparently, it's an offensive word in Spanish. Also, apparently the acronym "HPT" for "Happy, Positive Thoughts" is also offensive in Spanish (having a different meaning, of course). Is everything more offensive in Spanish or something?

I don't have all the time in the world for this stuff, and so here's some info that will help you.  I don't circle people just to collect circles counts.  Feel free to circle me, but I may not circle you back if you: 
  • Don't have a good profile filled out letting me know what your interests are
  • Don't have a lot of content posted on your page
  • Post a lot of vulgar or sexually-related content. I'm a guy who tries to have a respect for my wife and my God, and that sort of thing pollutes those relationships. 
  • Seem to be spam-related or some marketing person just looking to increase their 'platform'. I have no interest in that sort of thing. 
Thanks for reading this far.  If in doubt, I'm much more likely to accept if you send me a personal message.

I have been an occasional customer of Metro for many years, but recently had need of a house call. They always go out of their way to help me in the store (or over the phone) to diagnose issues or give me advice on parts. This week our dryer 'broke'. It was a stacked unit and I had no idea how to get it apart to fix it. I made an appointment in which the technician was prompt, professional and friendly. He quickly diagnosed the issue, but it required a blower motor, which he did not have on hand, and would require a return trip. The return visit the technician was even early, and had the whole thing fixed almost by the time his appointment had been for and for a very reasonable cost. Very highly recommend them in terms of price and quality of service.

This review is for the Tree Farm business. We have bought our trees from Kirby's for the last 3 or 4 years. Great experience, good prices, and have had good luck with the trees we've bought. It's a cut-your-own kind of place, which we prefer, and it's one of the few around that still sell Fraser Firs, which are our preferred type of tree. Very reasonable prices. We paid half this year of what it has sometimes cost at other places in the past. Definitely recommend.

I'm a huge fan of this place. I love the selection of vendors, the public access and involvement, and the commitment from the staff and volunteers to a quality experience all around. Definitely an example of things I really love about this city.

I've been taking our cars to Albert Auto for 5 years now. In that time, never once have they tried to upsell me to something I didn't need, or exaggerate issues in my car. They have always been prompt, met their time commitments, and often made room for an urgent visit with little/no notice. Chad and the crew are always willing to explain issues, and will give you honest answers on how bad issues might be or might get. I've actually had them recommend against immediately replacing stuff I thought might need to be done. So, if you need an honest mechanic shop that does good work, you should definitely give them a call.

Great burgers and tavern food. Good service. A little small, atmosphere a little 'sterile' but in good condition. Will definitely go back though. "Breakfast" burger a hit.

We knew we were going to pass through Mt. Pleasant and needed a place to eat. After looking at reviews and menus online, we narrowed our list to this and one other place. We chose this one and are SO glad we did. The service was great and the food was outstanding. We had a large party (nine, mix of adults and kids) and they were accommodating to us and very family-friendly atmosphere. Lots of choices on the menu and everything was very good. As others have said, the queso dip with the chips was great and the atmosphere was very clean and bright. My wife ordered the Gorditas which were 'cute' in her words and very yummy. I ordered the "Carnitas Gary" and honestly don't think I've ever had a better meal at a mexican restaurant EVER. The pico de gallo was also amazing - fresh and had avocados, which was a very nice touch. Overall, I highly recommend it and the next time we pass this way, we will be sure to stop again.

We took a pit stop here on a trip recently. We were very impressed by all this place had to offer. Lots of information about the area, and had some great activities for the kids while we took a little pit stop. There's a little 'mine' obstacle course (for like 2-5 year old), local geography/history and even a one full 2-story wall that contains an animated model of the Mollie Kathleen mine complete with animated mine lift, workers, etc. Breathtaking views of the Rockies outside too. We just needed a short break, but believe it or not, when we go back, we might plan a special trip just to go back to this place.
