I walk down memory lane…. TRASH

I believe you need to just keep a positive attitude in life…. everything is great and it will be great! Or at least that is what my Wife keeps telling me. It is true though and I do feel better having a more positive surrounding and family around. One recommendation is to not watch the news or following politics.

Back to trash / good stuff…. I use to give everyone in my family my “best” garbage finds for Christmas. Usually clothing and something random like a book or figurine. Now I am not invited to Christmas. LOL 🙁

I remember the day well…. I pulled up to the car wash and there were no crows…. weird?  That was because I had an unique item in my garbage can a scarecrow? 🙂

Large stuff is always fun…. like a bumper or a huge heavy tire.  I would actually be interested how many tires I have gotten over the years?

A mattress always brightens my day! 🙂  Next time I should “donate it”!  LOL 🙂

I found 2 cash registers that looked like someone with a crowbar broke into them. I called the Police and I said that I thought it was Guthrie’s so they called another Police department but the detectives were off that day.  🙁 So the Police officers said to just throw them away. I did call the restaurant and they were robbed 2 weeks ago but they never called back to say if they wanted the registers.

The comments from NYPD are good also!  LOL  http://cwguy.com/?p=3658  He is correct though…. the Police should at least pretend to be interest in this obvious evidence.

The above comment from NYPD…. reminds me what the Police told me when they saw the picture below.  “He is out past curfew”…. plus the Police gave the pictures back.  I asked “do you need the pictures?”  Just a side note here for Police departments….  The answer is actually “YES we need those pictures” and act interested and then throw the pictures away.  Okay?  🙂


Our government’s money hard at work? (20 unopened boxes of baby food + 2 boxes of cereal.)  No comment.

I also have found duffle bags of people’s worldly possessions. I am always torn with their items…. it was probably all their possessions they own…. but the bag was usually huge (which I needed to store), sometimes the bag had bugs in it and the bag always smelt like pure wet dog ass. I always keep the bags…. but the matter how long I keep the bags no one ever picked up any of them.

I have have had deers, snakes and dogs.

Before they moved this high school I believe my wash was a dumping ground for coolers and alcohol.  I also had a cooler full of nasty fish also a cooler of nasty meat (different times).

Full sets of car keys with key fobs!? Plus they are NEVER claimed? LOL 🙂

Microseven Security Camera for your Car Wash

I ened up purchasing 2 Hikvision camera instead http://amzn.to/2f2v2Iy http://amzn.to/2epG88k

But I almost purchased this Microseven cameras…. the http://amzn.to/2dEEDiA which is $120 and has wifi, built in storage (sd card) and free live streaming. You can also use it with blue iris and they sell their own NVR. $90 http://amzn.to/2eM4FkW

Actually looking at it…. I was going to purchase 4x 3mp version. http://amzn.to/2ezHayU $650 or $180 a piece.

The reason I posted the Microseven camera is it might be interesting to note how technology is evolving.  Wifi, build in storage and free live streaming from a camera that cost half as much as a camera 10 years ago.  It is really amazing.  You also do not need a DVR which is the best feature…. plus with the ip based cameras all you need is a wifi router and then you can search footage without a computer!  I probably replace at least 4-5 computers in 10 years.  I also replaced at least 3 dvrs.  Replacing cameras unfortunately is a wash because I had to replace them over the years.

These new cameras can also support NVRs which some have amazing features…. Hikvison’s computer software and I believe some NVRs?  (I have not looked yet though http://amzn.to/2e5P0wT) support logging car tags and counting people.  You should check out the manuals if you are interested…. pretty cool stuff.

Need a little help moving stuff?

Well I am busy…. I can not help you move anything sorry.  LOL 🙂  I have been moving a lot of stuff recently…. and this was just a little tip no one shared with me.  I had to figure this out myself.   I would normally just roll my ratcheting tie straps up and put them in a case.  But now I use these Kotap BB-6B Ball Bungees which are 6″….. they are great from holding everything together.  Also after loading all your crap onto a trailer there is nothing worse then having to secure the excess strap….. well now I just use the bungee.  They save a little time and really help…. it is also easier to get the bungee off then some stupid knot I made!  🙂  The 6″ size seems to be perfect for the straps also.

I would really recommend both of these:

DRB Systems to acquire Unitec…. Now you are Screwed! LOL :)

drb_unitec

I am just kidding!  I do think it is scary though…. because I am pretty sure DRB does not answer or repair anything unless your contract is paid up?  I am also pretty sure someone told me their service cost was 3k a year?  (Or 3 bands… according to my new hood friend fresh out of the block.  He had to tell me what a band was?  🙂 )  To be fair the 3k was for tunnel equipment…. but why not everything?  Also another problem would be the industry push for just tunnel equipment these days…. Unitec at least had a focus on the IBA.  But like other people mentions I would never panic!  LOL 🙂  They will probably not change anything.

BTW…. if you want to purchase the above Unitec entry unit it is for sale.  It is also empty.
