Broken Canon PowerShot SD630 again?


I really have a hard time counting but over the part 3 years my camera (Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital Elph) has broken 6 times.  Yes, 6 times (I think you can check it out here and see if I can count correctly).  I purchased the 3 year warranty (thank goodness) and it saved me around $900 in repairing this Canon POS over the past 3 years?  This time the camera display decided to quit working.  Also when you use the zoom the pictures are fuzzy.  By the way fuzzy pictures are not good.

Someone Purchased the Old Carwash in Fairfield


I really liked this carwash and I have posted pictures in the past.  I even called the owner of the wash and he actually talked me out of it, which is interesting.  The Fairfield wash location always looked like a good safe location.  But I drove by today and it looks like someone might have been killed in the yard of the abandoned house behind the wash?  Or maybe not?  I’m not going to start any rumors!

I HATE AT&T and I am NOT Kidding!


Okay I already made my proclamation about my hatred for AT&T.  Now I should give you a reason I guess?  It is very short and easy to fix.

I have a commercial phone line because that is really the only way (I guess) I can get credit cards cleared.  So I pay AT&T $63.94 for their great “commercial” service.  It is so much better then my home service……..  Wait I got rid of them, I forgot.  So I have had no problem with my phone I get over charged for “commercial” services like any “good” company would do.

BUT WHY AT&T DO YOU HAVE TO SELL MY ADDRESS TO EVERYONE ON THIS EARTH!!!!  I haven’t got any mail at my carwash for 5 year now I get mail all the time as soon as I got a phone line.  Oh and it is all just crap and they all know I am a business.  I wonder how that happened?  Weird.  My monthly payment should actually be cheaper then a “home” line because my address is apparently worth money.  I don’t see a credit on my bill for receiving bulk / junk mail.

So what I think I should do is post my address so everyone can enter the address into their bulk / sucker address list!

Here it is.   You can mail anything that slips under the door:  ES Car Wash, 271 Forest Road, Hueytown, AL 35023

If you want to send good stuff like cash and gifts try my po box at:  Eric Wilson, PO Box 48, Dolomite, AL 35061

I Blew a Fuse!


My FragraMatics Vacuum blew a fuse and I had to replace it.  It uses a ABC-10BC3 which is a 10amp 250v fuse.

Have I ever mentioned that the FragraMatics Vacuums are a pain to work on?  6 screws to take off the top and they use security screws?   Jim Coleman’s Vacuums only have 1 and no security screw.  I really do like the security screw, but 6?    At least it could be 4 maybe 3?

Dumping Lots of Bags


Someone mistakened  my carwash for the dump and decided to dump 5-6 bags of household crap.  I couldn’t find any mail or anything which makes me sad.  I quit after I saw what is in the second picture.  There was also lots of wadded up toilet paper in the bag…….. I really didn’t want to see pieces of Playguy’s May 2000 issue “18 year-old Butt-Muffin Spreads it for Dough”!

Klean-Wall VS Mister Plumber ($1 Store Crap) – Update


Well after the head to head death match between Klean-Wall and Mister Plumber, I decided to purchase…….. Klean-Wall!  Why you ask?  Because it has a “corrosive” sticker on it.  It looks cooooool!  Oh and a warning label.  I forgot how much it costs but it was around $80 and I got it delivered free from a local guy!  Thanks Mike.
