Arizona Coyotes License Plate Shot Down

Senate Bill 1480 (SB1480) failed to pass, so the hope for Arizona Coyotes "special plates" is dead for now. Other plates that went down in flames were "Developmental Disabilities Awareness", "Equine Education Organization", "Arizona Professional Golf", "First Responder", "Firefighter", "Fallen Hero", and one for some school. There is a table below with how the Arizona Senate voted and the associated contact information. Since it is now after the fact, contacting these legislators will have little effect. Lesson Learned It's a lesson in keeping an eye on what's important to you as an individual, it's very easy to be surprised by legislation that's significantly more important than having a special plate for your car. We owe it to ourselves to stay connected with what our legislature is doing, this legislations could just have easily had a significant impact on the education of our kids or some other equally important "thing". Let's pay attention the next time and get in front … [Read More...]

Stay in Stanley, instead

Idaho Pile Of Corpses Contest

Salmon, Idaho is in a beautiful part of the US. Our family usually stops further south in Stanley to be closer to the Sawtooth Mountains, but Salmon is frequently on our summer vacation route. Not that it will matter much to the gross income of Salmon, but we'll be certain to gas up and be full of food before heading through there on our way up US 93. Why? This weekend, Salmon is hosting their first annual coyote and wolf derby. The dates (and the inclusion of wolves) likely chosen because December 28 marks the fortieth anniversary of passage of the Endangered Species Act. Competitive Killing The largest wolf killed will bring the winning team a $1,000 minimum prize as will the most … [Read More...]

Coyotes Solid Outlook

We went to Jobing.com Arena yesterday full of hope the Coyotes would best the mighty Bruins. The loss was painful, but our team played well on the ice and the right players look to be starting their hot streaks in time for the playoffs. We still felt really good on the ride home, for some reason a tough loss wasn't killing our mood as much as usual. This morning I figured out why. We Have HOCKEY Owners I wasn't aware that Bruins fans were as idiotic as Canuckleheads when it comes to patting their goaltender on the back. The predictable "Tuuuuuuuu" rising from dorks wearing yellow every time Rask was within 40 feet of a puck was a revelation to me. Years of practice with mocking … [Read More...]

Bill For Barrett-Jackson? Over A Million

My top ten Barrett-Jackson rides for my own personal use was full of cars you could drive instead of parking in a museum. Had I populated my non-existent ten car garage with these things, I would have had to write a check for $1,020,350. Not bad, really! $495,000 - 1955 Talbot-Lago T-26 Grand Sport GSL Coupe I guessed this would be a a $200,000 car, I was wrong.It's on the list because of the way it looks, it's the right color and everything. If you complain it's not a driver, you'd be wrong because it's run five Colorado Grand and two Copperstate 1000 rallies. $20,900 - 1963 Pontiac Star Chief 4 Door Sedan This would need some air conditioning … [Read More...]

Secret Android Speedup WORKS

I'll admit I have yet to perform any scientific calculations on the effectiveness of the following change, I'd have to test it and then revert to the prior setup on my devices to do it correctly. Seat of the pants? This is a great change. You'll need to have Android KitKat 4.4.2 on your device for this to work. I believe right now that means having a Nexus 5 phone or a Nexus 7 tablet. Oracle, Schmoracle Oracle sued Google in 2012 claiming that the basis for the Android operating system running Java, the Dalvik virtual machine, infringed on patents oracle had acquired with it's purchase of Sun Microsystems. Oracle lost their case, but Google learned a lesson and started building … [Read More...]
