Heck, I get the shakes from too much ice tea...

dat - Posted - 12/03/2012:  07:07:12



I mostly just drink water now

OM45GE - Posted - 12/03/2012:  09:45:24



Me too - 80 proof Scotch is 60% water.

dat - Posted - 12/03/2012:  09:56:40



never thought about it like that

DeanT - Posted - 12/03/2012:  10:19:13


My dentist gave me a pill that had the same effect as a bottle of Scotch

dat - Posted - 12/03/2012:  10:45:42



take that pill then record your banjer pickin'   then try to figure out what it was you were trying to pick after the pill wears off

Alaina - Posted - 12/03/2012:  11:37:28



I do that with normal conversations.

OM45GE - Posted - 12/04/2012:  04:11:30



I don't drink at all if I'm playing banjo or guitar in public. I'm amazed at how much even one beer or glass of wine/Scotch messes up my playing.



When I used to play Rock and Roll we would get absolutely blind on anything we could get our hands on and play some pretty big shows. We used to think we were playing great. I'm not sure if I'm happy or disappointed that there aren't any recordings from back then.

DeanT - Posted - 12/04/2012:  07:04:04


Our lead singer forgets lyrics at about his second beer. He is banned from drinking during shows. None of the rest of the band drink at all.

dat - Posted - 12/04/2012:  07:32:05



I don't play in public,   it would'nt be pretty, but it would take a lot of beer to get me on stage to start with

OM45GE - Posted - 12/04/2012:  09:28:05



I don't remember one show when I woke up on my front lawn where the drummer had rolled me out of the car. He said he was too wasted to drag me into the house.

DeanT - Posted - 12/04/2012:  10:13:39


I don't know how we survived those days. I should still be in jail for the stuff we never got caught doing

dat - Posted - 12/04/2012:  10:36:05



I think we are the reason that the laws are more strict now.



they put up a fence between the river and the back door of the beer joint after I skidded my flatbottom boat through the back doors (overhead garage door) when the river was up.   we had been running the river all day and the guy riding in the front of the boat asked if the water was high enough to make it to the beer joint, we got close and it was, so I gassed it,  I used to like to make a good entrance

DeanT - Posted - 12/04/2012:  10:49:05


We use to hop a freight train pulling out of the yards (a block from the high school) and ride it out to the farm, and beat the school bus home by half an hour. That 30 mph jump off got a little hairy sometimes, but that was half the fun. The engineers and workers knew we were doing it, and never even cared. Probably a good thing it didn't pass a beer joint...

Alaina - Posted - 12/04/2012:  11:26:51



Anyone near me that knows how to change a Mini Cooper's ignition coil and spark plugs?

mbanjo - Posted - 12/04/2012:  12:28:43


Alaina - Posted - 12/04/2012:  12:29:14



You're awesome! Thank you!

mbanjo - Posted - 12/04/2012:  12:41:43



I have owned a few minis.................I used to love em to death



Then they went and stopped making them for a lot of years.   I should maybe trade my Jeep for one.



The old Cherokee is getting too expensive to run these days.

Alaina - Posted - 12/04/2012:  13:36:59



I love my car, and thanks for the videos, you saved me about $300+ in installation fees!

mbanjo - Posted - 12/04/2012:  14:20:18



Auto Mechanics are thieves......

DeanT - Posted - 12/04/2012:  14:42:00


Are the Coopers getting longer? I like the look of the newer ones

Alaina - Posted - 12/04/2012:  14:42:40



That's the new countryman, I think it looks great!!

mbanjo - Posted - 12/04/2012:  14:49:17



I always thought Americans liked 'BIG' cars?             big

Alaina - Posted - 12/04/2012:  15:22:01



I'm 5'4 on a good day, remember? I like seeing where I'm parking and being able to get into my car without a ladder haha

mbanjo - Posted - 12/04/2012:  15:31:21



I don't know about the newer minis,  but in my old one I used to drive from Sydney to Melbourne on a full tank. 600 miles

Alaina - Posted - 12/04/2012:  15:32:37



I get about 400 highway miles per 3/4 tank of gas at 27-28 mpg. And even then it's only $40 to fill up from empty.

DeanT - Posted - 12/04/2012:  17:05:11


I want one... how are they for maintenance?

mbanjo - Posted - 12/04/2012:  18:22:33



Evidently they have spark plug and Ignition coil problems.............tongue

DeanT - Posted - 12/04/2012:  18:34:04



My wife's Miata ate spark plug wires like crazy... to hot not enough air circulation... they fried

 that's like most cars now, smaller engine compartments, more electrical stuff packed in, not enough airflow

Alaina - Posted - 12/05/2012:  08:25:28



It's an 04 and this is the first time that I've had to do any maintenance on it other than oil changes. I absolutely LOVE it!

DeanT - Posted - 12/05/2012:  09:51:13



my 98 Ford station wagon is becoming one of "those clunkers" on the road... one of these days... I've had it since it was a puppy, 

Alaina - Posted - 12/05/2012:  09:54:47



Haha it's still a puppy compared to my dad's '79 F-150 that is rusty and three different colors... I love the weird looks people have when they see it!

DeanT - Posted - 12/05/2012:  09:56:10



That's what I had before the wagon! Loved that old truck!

Alaina - Posted - 12/05/2012:  10:02:26



Dad, mom, my sister, and I all still fit in the front seat together! We took the truck to get our Christmas tree. The four of us haven't been in that truck together in 18 years haha

mbanjo - Posted - 12/05/2012:  12:47:08



Did you fix your 'cooper' yet?

Alaina - Posted - 12/05/2012:  12:48:40



Working on it, they didn't have the spark plug wires that we found out last night were needed (dad changed my spark plugs and was reattaching the wires when one came apart in his hand...). Thankfully the electrical tape that he put it back together with is holding strong so that I can get the wires tonight and make my car all happy again.

dat - Posted - 12/05/2012:  12:49:04



I had a 1970 ford f 100 sport custom with a 4 speed, we would load up 5 people in the front and go to the river, it was a tight fit, but that makes it even nicer when you're 17  tongue

Alaina - Posted - 12/05/2012:  12:49:53



That was also before the seatbelt laws and back when you could fill the bed up with people too

If that is what it takes to get my car happy, it can stay depressed.

mbanjo - Posted - 12/05/2012:  14:28:28



a depressed car is not a nice sight....



Alaina - Posted - 12/05/2012:  14:30:30



No but it is kinda cute

How about a whole road full?



 

mbanjo - Posted - 12/05/2012:  15:17:34



They are sad cars indeed................I think I prefer the happy one though.

Alaina - Posted - 12/05/2012:  15:17:56



I've seen that before. It was scary and dad kept getting out to wipe off the car.

ErikH - Posted - 12/05/2012:  16:57:12



Those cars are very sad because their owners were foolish enough to try to drive on Lake Shore Drive during a blizzard.  Rule of thumb:  never take the route that takes you closest to a large body of water during a blizzard.
