  Old Country
Posted by: sternwake - 11-11-2017, 09:14 PM - Forum: Heart to Heart Talk - Replies (23)

I was hoping to tap some of the brains of our people with funny southern accents, as to what type of country music from yesteryear, will make you stop what you are doing and just listen and feel it.

One of my favorites:

Blaze Foley's Clay Pigeons.

If that is new to you, and you like it, try 'Moonlight song'


Not sure it really qualifies as country, perhaps folk. i don't care, its good

  Building a chemically safe van
Posted by: Snikwahjm - 11-11-2017, 08:57 PM - Forum: Builds,Modifications and Restorations - Replies (87)

have chemical sensitivities. I’ve recovered from some chemical poisoning but I try to be careful not to gas myself. To avoid more chemical  poisoning I am very concerned how we will be outfitting our van since usually sensitivities are caused by some kind of indoor air pollution. We chose a van from 1991. It was stored in a garage when it wasn’t traveling. It should be out gassed but now there is the beginnings of deterioration from sun resulting in dust. We have had some discussions what we can do with the ceiling. It is some kind of foam lined fuzz and slightly drooping. It may have some hard board under it. I don’t know it it is glued on or how it is attached but there is a baggy saggy layer drooping down.  I think it needs to come out and be replaced with what? We would never match that mauve fabric... There is carpet on the floor. Hard wood or ceramic won’t out gas as much as carpet but in a van?  Vinyl plank would be cheap and outgas less than sheet vinyl and carpet padding.  On a hot sunny day I’m sure there will be outgassing and it is a small closed space. We don’t know if there is plywood or strand board under the carpet and carpet padding that can also deteriorate and turn to toxic dust powder. The foam seats on our old van turned to powder. How long will that take in the sun? Seat covers? Would they slow down the deterioration? The curtains and side walls are made out of fuzzy stuff and could turn to dust in the sun. The van is practically a time capsule other than the sagging ceiling. It is kind of killing me to think about yanking stuff out. it is a very nice well cared for van and should serve us well but we did get it to use as we see fit. 
My pictures are too big to post.

Smile Hey hey I'm here!
Posted by: Heidi Mull - 11-11-2017, 07:53 AM - Forum: Welcome Center - Replies (21)

'Morning everyone. Smile I was Bitty back on the other forum before I left. Poking my head in here to see how this place is.

I'm currently living in a 2007 23FB Jayco Jayflight trailer in an RV park. With my fiance. Big Grin  My 2004 Toyota Sienna minivan still has its setup, which I use occasionally. With the comforts of RV living my health has improved enough for me to get a part time job for the first time in my life! Between that and freelancing I'm almost completely off government handouts, which has been a goal of mine for years. Soon.

Life is busy with a lot of projects, but good. Looking forward to seeing everyone. Shy

Thanks to all who served.  Here's a picture you probably all agree with.  Unless, of course, you WERE an officer . . .

  My dog might be a Hot sauce addict
Posted by: sternwake - 11-10-2017, 11:21 PM - Forum: Cooking - Replies (11)

I put pepperocinis on my Peanutbuttter and jelly lavash bread roll ups.  Laugh, but  try it sometime.  

I Snort wasabi just for the burn( not really)

Hot chinese mustard, can't get enough of it.

There is a Taco shop by me, Robertos, I don't like it as much as some other taco shops in the area, but they have a self serve hot sauce selection.  They have one which is sooo tasty, and hot, I tell the proprieter that this hot sauce alone accounts for all the business they get from me, but this is only 90% true as  they are next to my regular grocery store, and the drug store which sells cheap american swill, for cheaper.

It makes me sweat in places I've never sweated before.  I thought my surfboard was dripping on my head, but it was sweat running down my neck from my hairline. Freaked me out, I just fixed that board.

Fiona wanted some of My Nachos,  As she was a babe magnet on the beach today, I gave her some, and one of them was drenched in my all time favorite Hot Sauce, the nacho, not the hot babe, but there is an image.

  She did not woof it down, she tenderly took it from me and chewed, and I expected her to react to the liquid smokey fire, but she was all tail wags for more, trying to play the cute card which earned her so many squeals of delight from hot babes who were rubbing her belly and throwing her slobber and sand encrusted tennis ball and squealing again when she would drop it at their feet.  

Ok here is a smidge more nacho, and this time I add a couple more drops of the fire suace trying to elicite a reaction.

None, she loved it.

When I was done with the Nachos, the bottom  of the container was coated in  the firesauce and left over good stuff, and I thought for sure, she would react to the heat, but that container was polished so clean it looked like it had never had food in it, and she was all tailwags looking at me like I was holding out on her.

I get that dogs do not have the tastebuds humans have, but even if it is 1/3 as intense to her as to me, it is still intense.

I went and got some of her dry food, and placed 4 pieces in her bowl on one side dry, and then dipped four pieces in the fire sauce.  The 4 dry ones remain untouched in the bowl.

So Fiona must be a hot sauce lover, as well as a babe magnet.

She never even touched her water  bowl after.
  Me, well I did mention cheap American swill right?

Good waves  today.

  Need height gain at rear axle
Posted by: Svenn - 11-10-2017, 09:17 PM - Forum: Mechanical Problems - Replies (20)

My suv sags a bit in the rear; no one sells air bags or custom springs for my model and even with some products that might work, all the shops I've called have refused to install because of liability.

Can I just jam sum rubber disks  or something between the jounce bumper and the strike plate until I get the height I want?  That's all an airbag would be anyway right?

  It Cost How Much???
Posted by: GotSmart - 11-10-2017, 06:09 PM - Forum: Product Reviews - Replies (59)

Camilla and I went out to Denny’s for Vets Day breakfast. I was not that hungry, so I asked about a small loaded hash brown.  I was told it was on the menu. 


We had 5 minutes to get to her appointment so I didn’t pay much attention to the bill.

Sixteen dollars for two rubber eggs and a small hash brown with gravey and ham. 

I got slammed in a grand style.
