Pictures of High Yield Northern Car Wash Bays…. Entitled “Bay Views”

Kate Carr must have run to far in her marathon?  🙂  This is the exact reason I NEVER run!  🙂  The link she gave for pictures in her SSCWN article was slate.com…. come on…. this is like saying try google.com?  🙂  I really like bay pictures…. I actually have a collect of my own.  (Not fancy style…. just showing equipment from random car washes…. you can see some here.)

But Mark Lyon’s collection or links are below:

I actually did not know there was a market for car wash pictures like Mark’s…. I have never seen any images like his.  I can not say Mark’s are good or bad?  But I do prefer the more artistic images of car washes on flickr if your into that sort of thing?:  https://www.flickr.com/groups/workinatthecarwash/pool/  https://www.flickr.com/groups/carwash/pool/  (Over seas) https://www.flickr.com/groups/66939429@N00/pool/

You know what really makes me really angry? :)

Is it just me or is this what happens every time?

WELL NOT TODAY!  🙂

I really love this grinder so far…. I have burnt out a little Dewalt grinder like this one then purchased a couple others….  But this Bosch 9 inch large angle grinder is pretty awesome…. if you want to grind through anything!

Only problem with the grinder is the length…. it is 26″ from the tip of the shield to the cord.  Almost as large as my kid.  LOL  🙂

It has more horsepower then my work car at 4hp….  The DEWALT D28499X has 5.3 horsepower….  The Dewalt is cheaper also…. I forgot why I thought the Bosch was better?  Maybe I try never to purchase Dewalt?  🙂  No…. I think Bosch just usually has better stuff in general?  I actually only purchase Dewalt products because they come/came in hard boxes…. which they look like they are getting cheap and starting to go with bags?  Like this device? DEWALT DCS355D  Which I think is one of the leading devices in that category of knock off Fein products?  Apparently Fein’s patent ran out?  I can not remember everything!  🙂

But now Dewalt has kind of a conflict of interest?  They use to have the hard cases for everything…. even multi-packs.  Then they switched to bags for multi-pack.  But it seems that Bosch and others…. came out with stuff like the lboxx.  Now Dewalt has 2 systems the tough system and the tstak….  I looked at both online.  No one sells them locally so I decided to not bother.  I like the tough system though because of the water proof aspect.  They have also gotten cheaper so they seem more appealing?

The United States Postal Service’s finest example in advertising! :)

This proves the United States does not require college degrees to work at the po box place? Or High School degrees? Or the ability to read? Or a stupid test for employment…. or any pride in your work.

I have a $44 a month box by the way! That is $528 a year?  Ask yourself…. Would I really have a box that is that small for $528 a year?  Does this really pass the stupid test? Someone should be fired or written up? (I pick fire everyone who interacts with customers…. but I do not get a vote.)  (Plus I did not even make fun of the lady that forgot how to write a “3”…. or maybe it was an “8”?  See I am nice I think it was a “3” though?  $184 a month would just be stupid!  LOL 🙂 )

Yes…. I also know the people renting the PO Boxes understand what the amount is for….  A box owner I would think is a private sector business owners.  Not a well paid Federal Government employee not accountable for being nice?  Sorry I really liked my Dolomate PO Box so much better.  I liked the Post Master running the entire place….  They were always super nice…. but the Government for some reason moves them around all the time and there was always someone new?  Seems stupid…..

BTW  When I get ALL the “case quarters” I will get a $134 a month box! ($1,608 a year) Just to tell everyone I can.

(Picture above)  My 5 year old was wondering why all these letters were sticking out of all these boxes…. Well daughter “this is what happens when the government tries to run a business…. all those letters were put in the wrong boxes”.  Yeah…. It is only 7 on that row…. but people probably throw stuff away all the time for people from bad service.

20141023 Update…. apparently it is not a requirement from the government to cover up delivery of mail to the wrong box!  Well that is a relief the government is not involved in a cover up….. wait a minute.  🙂   I could have taken a picture today but it would have looked the same.  To be honest I thought they would have collected the mail and redeliver there mistakes…. silly me.  🙂  My $44 a month box is down mis-deliverer cove…. I am just kidding again…. they do not just do it on mis-deliverer cove it is everywhere do not worry.

Neat picture of JJJ at some ICA meeting.

Just found this picture…. I took this picture at the ICA show in 2010.  This is how I use to get my subscription…. from his hand outs.  🙂  JJJ was a great guy and put out a super magazine.  This might have been one of his last ICA appearances and magazines?

This was before the ICA show was actually open?  When vendors set their booths up…. I had a backstage pass! Or a vendor pass…. I forgot? 🙂
