How to Use a Fire Extinguisher..........

"Fire extinguishers. You pass them all the time as you walk the hallways at work or school, and hopefully at home too."
"But no matter how many times you’ve seen them in your day-to-day life, you’ve probably given little thought as to how you actually use one. Maybe it never crossed your mind, or maybe you assume it’s so simple it’s not something you need to learn."
Thanks to Park National Bank's Dave Hardy for passing this blog post along.

Where there's a will, there's a way...............

From one of the Greatest blogs: Valet
I have a pair of Nantucket-red-style khakis that I've been holding off on washing so I can get more of a jean-like fade on them (knees, whiskering, etc). Is there a better way to do this, or am I basically pissing up a rope?
Where there's a will, there's a way. If you've been wearing them for a few weeks, you've likely got a natural crease and wear pattern developed, so you can emphasize the abrasions with some fine-grit sandpaper (look for a 240-grit). Start by lightly rubbing against the creased and worn areas, along with any other area you want to distress, like the pockets, hems and along the seams. Also, make sure your wallet's full, stick it in the back pocket and run the sandpaper over the pocket. Then take a damp rag and start rubbing where you sanded, it should help pull out some of the color and then drop them in the washing machine.

January 9, 1933

"Ground thawed through.  No winter as yet in this month. 

I made the remark tonight that an auto properly taken care of requires as much time as keeping a horse.  It seems true in many cases as I spend three or four hours every week on ours.

Last Friday night I was having a quiet game of checkers with Chester.  While intent on the game I was smoking my brier pipe.  Bang! went the pipe.  The whole family enjoyed the explosion except myself.  I turned pale and began to wonder if I were shot.  For instantly I remembered I had been carrying .22 short cartridges in my tobacco pouch and had overlooked one before filling the pouch with tobacco.  We found the burnt shell but not the bullet.  After my explaining we all laughed more heartily that a tragic setting had made comedy."

How to avoid getting a speeding ticket...................


"While talking your way out of a ticket is probably next to impossible, Bruck says someone speeding to get to a family member just sent to the hospital might do the trick. Also: if you’re tracking down your spouse, who’s having (or about to have) an affair.

I clocked a woman coming down from New Mexico on Highway 54 at 111 mph,” says Bruck. “She had just been stopped for going 90 mph 15 minutes [earlier] in New Mexico … She had been crying, and the tears didn’t just start — they’d been going on a long time, you can tell. She was on her way to a motel in El Paso to catch her husband who was shacked up with another woman there, cheating. How do you write a ticket for that?”

From Urban Dictionary via Todd Harrold

"Going commandtoe is when you wear shoes without socks. Often done in the summer or if no socks are available. Does not apply to when wearing sandals/flip-flops because socks in that context would just be wrong anyway."
