2021 GMC Sierra Elevation crew cab / 6.5' bed. 3.0L DuraMax / 10-spd.   It's only money.

Been away for a while.. summer stuff.. figured I'd get out an live while the weather was warm. Decided to get back into riding bikes.. had given it up back in '05 after my then wife (now ex) had issue

This whole crossover craze has gone a bit too far....

I really am a huge New York Central fan, loved their old logos. They went away in 1968 with the merger with the Pennsylvania to form Penn  Central.

I am also a sucker for the similar Powermatic logo. 

Powermatic 12" Woodworking Planer PM100 Model 100 for sale online | eBay

I have a model 100 planer, similar machine to the one the above name plate is attached to, it dates to 1955, its a beast, runs perfectly. 

I don't like thier modern logo nearly so much.

Big fan of the old Soo Line logo as well...

I love the Eagle on older Oliver tools. My badge on my lathe and 18 inch bandsaw will look this good when i am done restoring them.

I guess I really live in an analog world, as opposed to the digital world that Robert Hall lives in...

Even if it hasn't technically happened, it is very much a reality and has been for years.

With recent redesigns, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin look and work more similarly than differently...a few times I've had to look closely to realize *which* one I was on.

It seems LaCroix specialty water is now a cool way to go to quench thirst with flavor, no sugar, and no sodium.

HOWEVER, some flavors of LaCroix are really, really bad.

Seems Ford is pulling back in their restructure to be a profitable auto company with higher ATP's. As such 5,000 people will loose their jobs as Ford closes manufacturing in Brazil. They will still keep sales, but auto's will be brought in from Argentina and other places around the globe.

Seems Australia is even more conservative about what you have in a commercial as they stopped this commercial from playing due to the drift done in the commercial.

This makes infintie sense, and is one reason I honestly went from hating Ford to loving them. They went from trying to be everything to everyone and for everyone to being their own honest self. 

Proud to be a Ford owner. Also, the ten speed tranny that was slightly notchy and awkward when i got the ragner is now buttery smooth. I am loving this trukc more every day. It ranks up there with my 55 Chevy, 66 Mustang Fastback, 2002 Maxda Miata, and 2015 Diesel Jetta as one of the top five favorite vehicles (out of about 30!) that I have owned.

I may have posted this before, but every time I hear this song I think about crusing around in an early 60's Impala. Enjoy...I love her voice.
