Castoreum = beaver gland anal juice ..... :sick: :sick: :sick: :wtf:




A big THANK YOU to Rick for finding a bumper for our Grand Marquis & taking the time to weld a patch on the inside, and take time out of the long drive to get it to me. Just wish I could have given him a bigger tip for his trouble. Thanks Rick!! :cheers:

Good morning! Just got back from the grocery store...hit a small bump on the way home and heard a loud bang under the floorboard in our 2010 Tahoe. Found a broken sway bar end link. Ripped the broken pieces out, threw them in the cupholder and continued on. Can't worry about a few loose parts....it is a Chevy after all.

Coal news: Check out the piece of stove coal my brother found mixed in with a bag of buck. I think it looks nice on the mantle. :D

Hey SMITTY I would not worry about that. What worries me is when I am in the men’s room and I hear strange noises emitting from one of the stalls followed by the usual endless spinning of the toilet paper and the grunts and groans that seam to imply “Oh! What a shitty mess!” then the door swings open and someone makes a beeline out of the room.
:shock:
“Hey buddy, the sink is right here. Use some soap on that”
“Are you kidding me, I gots to get the hell outa here. I just made a shitty mess in there. Got it on my hands and all”

You know who I mean. He is the guy in front of you in the buffet line. :sick:

Speaking of food, how about the horse meat thing going on. I would knowingly eat horse meat. The thought does not bother me. Maybe because I am not a horse guy. My wife had a horse as a young girl and she don’t approve of eating them.

I hope you told him “Don’t eat yellow snow”
That is a great tip and no cost to you

What I want to know is WHO decided that the 'anal gland juice' would be ANY form of a FOOD product?? :shock: :?:
I hope that person did their OWN 'taste testing' :fear:

That would be like 'Road Dropping Filler' to add fiber to a 'health food'.. :lol:

I'm beginning to think nothing in a box, can or in a grocery store is safe.. ..

I'm down in Florida, visiting my 86 year old mother, she got 'feisty' with me for not visiting here this last
Christmas. So I had to make it down here before Easter, or I'd be in REAL trouble..

I'll still have to come back down in early June to drive her up to MIchigan for the summer.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Hello Everyone,
I too waiting for daylight savings. It's a little tough in the morning but sure is nice to have some extra daylight after work. I spent most of yesterday installing new shocks in the strut assemblies in or family sedan, a '00 Acura TL. All in all, not a difficult job, I am just getting too old to be working in my cramped unheated garage. :shock: I bought the $12.99 Harbor Freight spring compressor. It was kind of scary using such a cheap tool but in the end, it actually worked really well.

Hey Smitty, what do you use for a spring compressor on mid-sized struts? The cheap tool I bought should work one more time, but wondering what recommendation you'd have? Next week, I am installing a new suspension in my Miata. I've been bitten by the Miata bug, upgrades coming soon. Should be fun!

Whenever I respond to a CL add, I make it clear I am not a spammer. Using a reference to a local landmark helps. If I am selling and I think I am being spammed, I ask a local sports, maybe a college team or whats best time to drive a busy local road or something else unusual.

I bought a 1600lbs of Blaschak today, seems like a lot of small chips mixed in, maybe the bottom of the barrel? We'll see how long it lasts. Take care everyone.

Cap, I have a fairly heavy duty unit for doing struts. I bought the unit to do the struts on my truck .... but this compressor nearly broke, and the strut didn't move 1mm!! I was standing on the jack pump, and the only thing that was moving was the metal on the press!! :shock: Ended up bringing the assemblies to the dealer - no shop in my area had a compressor big enough to handle struts on the NBS Silverado's/Sierra's.

For every other strut out there, this thing makes it cake. Just tighten everything down to the spring, and pump your foot like a jack. Easy as pie. I bought it off eBay for a reasonable price .... so that means it was made in china. :roll: I don't use it too often, so should last a good while. Only our Focus has struts small enough for this press, and I don't plan on keeping that car very long ...

Anyway, this is it. Beats fumbling with those cheap hand-held assemblies. Don't have to worry about the strut flopping all over the place while you take half an hour to tighten everything down. This thing takes you minutes to do the same job:

I hear you on the price. I wouldn't buy a TRUCK for that much ... let alone a roving bar! :lol:



On a side note ... just started watching AMISH Mafia on Discovery. Who knew! :funny: :punk:

Lisa, they are having a pollination summit in Arlington, Va. somewhere on March 5 held by EPA & Dept of Agriculture to save the honey bee & other pollinating critters--this sure sounds important to me with the USA going to hell in a hand basket :( Just a FYI post for you. Now if they would lay off/ fire about half the fanatics in EPA starting at the TOP, I'd bet that could save some money for this Country
