What do you do when you just want to “CHILL”?

What do you do when you just want to “CHILL”?

Well I know what Jordan Robinson would do. 🙂 He just might break into someone’s apartment and take a nap! 🙂

A new word for the Urban Dictionary: Burglaraxin

Definition: When in the course of a burglary the burglar takes a nap, eats, or relaxes in the victim’s abode.

As used in a sentence: Jordan just wanted a place to chill and charge his phone, but the homeowner called the police when she came home and found him burglaraxin.

WORLD’S First VR 360 pictures of a Car Wash posted on a website!

Okay…. This is kind of new and seemed a little slow to load. Pretty cool if you like looking at car washes. As a bonus I am not in the picture! 🙂

The bottom right square button makes the image full screen. You can use your mouse to move around the pictures…. It worked with Google Chrome and IE 11. On my phone I had to make sure “request desktop site” was not checked. Then you could use VR glasses or move your phone around like you are actally there! (Or you are a nerd/dork! Either one…. Do not attempt in public when normal people or females can see you. 🙂 )

This was really the first time I took pictures at a wash and I was trying to figure out the orientation…. That is why some images seem to be the same (first two sets of two images).






As a side note…. Usually you can zoom in on 360 images. This tech is still new though…. or I picked a crappy plugin? Maybe that is why it does not work on my phone? 🙂

Jim Coleman Swipe @ The Bay or should you say B&C Electronic Engineering, Inc. Swipe @ The Bay?

Actually this is probably your PROBLEM! 🙂 I actually do not know which company to be angry at the most. Jim Coleman which pushes all the blame on B&C or B&C which is like calling my Mother for helpful advice…. JK or am I?  LOL  🙂  (B&C might be helpful on other topics?)

But someone from B&C emailed me a couple months ago about my CC POST LINK. I did not get a manual like I wanted but she did give me a little information. Also pretty helpful….

“B&C is the manufacture for Coleman Timers (-1034R, 1034S, 1032S, 1034T (cash timer for SATB Server) & PBC Boards (vacuum, vending, BAY & fragrance). All of our products are repairable with an average cost of $100.00 per item. We also manufacture the TimeMaster (Hi-Performance Wash Systems – TM5J) and Istobal USA (formally Magic Wand – TM6)
You can also buy spares direct from B&C. New SATB Timers are $785.40/each, they are very expensive and this is why it is always good to have them repaired first.
We are also the manufacture of the SATB Server.”

Also this is a good deal when sending in your SATB timers…. just forget your “remote display”.  I am not sure what this is because I never got a manual.  LOL 🙂  But knowing it cost $100 to get repaired it sure seems like a good deal?  They also claim it is “new”…. but it might be “new to you” or “used”?  Either way $129 is not that bad…. if anyone has an image of how to set this crap up or a manual let me know!

Also – when sending in SATB timers, please make sure to include the remote display as the timer has to be tested with it. If the timer arrives without, we will add a new remote display ($129.00) and ship out as a complete unit.

The reason behind this = when juggling timers and remote displays, it very easy to plug in a known good timer and blow up the remote display and vise-versa.”

Unfortunately I have a SATB Server. 🙂

My unit is a Model 75700

Discussing Water Wizard 1.0 and 2.0 Tri Foam…. DID YOU KNOW! :)

Jim Coleman Water Wizard 1.0

Jim Coleman Water Wizard 2.0

The Jim Coleman Water Wizard 1.0 uses 3 tri-foam pvc sticks….
The Jim Coleman Water Wizard 2.0 uses 1 tri-foam pvc stick….
Greg had to explain to me how the WW2 produced tri-foam because I was not thinking at all! But it make common sense…. The tri-foam on the WW2 works just like…. wait for it…. rotation TRI-FOAM! LOL 🙂

So which Tri-Foam does a better job?  The WW1 or the WW2 Tri-Foam?  Well people can argue about anything…. But I am pretty sure very few people (besides Jim Coleman employees) can disagree that the WW2 Tri-Foam is worse for the customers. The WW2 uses the rotating chemical obviously as a space saving solution…. But there appears to be plenty of room? So I assume it is because of labor cost…. Because everyone knows the WW2 is cheaper than the WW1! What…. The WW2 cost more? Oh…. Oh Okay.

Jim Coleman Water Wizard 1.0 and 2.0 Count Wheel


The first picture (white motor) is from a Water Wizard 1.
The second picture (black bag) is from a Water Wizard 2.

I am not familiar with the WW 2.0 but it appears from the pictures that the 2.0 has 2 sensors where the WW 1.0 has 1 sensor…. For counting.

Also just as a note: The WW 1.0 wheel is supposally a 5.5×1.5 plastic lawnmower wheel
I actually purchased an extra…. It is somewhere! 🙂

Not sure if it is true but just passing crap along….

I have heard worse propaganda everyday from more reliable sources…. am I wrong?  🙂  I have also got burned my bad iphones….  So this seems legit.

So last night at baseball / t-ball practice.  This lady on our team went through this long drawn out story about how her Mother worked in technology as a programmer and made her take classes in college…. BLA BLA BLA.  Everyone was chiming in…. Computers suck…. I hate them…. Normal work stuff you hear.

Then she says…. her Mother works at Apple.  She claims her Mother always tells her when or if she should purchase a new iphone etc.  Not to hard to believe…. but very generic information…. But why would someone lie about where their parents worked?  (Anyone could make this prediction also…. According to articles they are having problems with the iphone x and the watch?  This does not matter though.)  Bottom line…. Her Mother said do not purchase the new iphone 8.

Disclaimer:  I have mention I do not use an iphone and do not agree with the leadership at apple multiple times.  But I have talked to my Wife preciously about purchasing an iphone 8 which I would probably not purchase now…. Probably just software issues though?  But I did not ask.

I am not sure if I should be OFFENDED by Budweiser or not? DO NOT TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

Let’s be honest here…. Doesn’t everyone tell us what to do? Doesn’t it get worse every day? Especially if you are married…. Am I WRONG! 🙂 Now it is Budweiser! 🙂 Maybe I do not want to “RISE UP” and get another frosty beverage! But maybe I do! 🙂  Plus why is BUD LIGHT RED!

So I was getting a non or alcoholic beverage (I forgot 🙂 ) that said something on it today…. “RISE UP”…. What? RISE UP against the crappy service you receive at Express Car Washes? Everyone should just go to a Self Serve Car Washes right Budweiser? Okay…. Or full service. I think this is what Budweiser was saying?! 🙂

Did you guys think I was going to comment on the National Anthem thing? Like I would make a statement that Budweiser was telling temporarily rich random people to rise for the National Anthem? Please…. I just realized the NFL was still playing games. 🙂  I mean they disbanded the NBA after Jordan right?  🙂

I LOVE Watching People WORK…. I could watch it all day! Well…. not all day you probably have to be outside! :)

Greg was pulling out a Coleman Water Wizard 1.0 and installing a Water Wizard 2.0.  Greg had a couple guys up at his wash which were pretty good and you can pick up some good tips just watching people…. Or harassing people!  LOL 🙂

My tips today were not from the tech guys…. but from Greg though.  Thought I would share them.

I believe everyone has had that set of sockets in that crappy case.  When that case craps out…. What do you do?  Purchase a new SET!  🙂  Well I learned the solution for my box and tool chest drawers full of sockets. (Well it probably will be easier to just purchase a new set then put it on the holder…. Right? 🙂 )

Below is how Greg demonstrated the Ernst socket holder…. I purchased it ASAP! 🙂

Another tool I would never think of having but both Greg and the tech were using was an extension for your drill or impact.  I need to pick one up it will probably come in handy. http://amzn.to/2fpljgr

I tried to figure out how to unscrew something with no clearance one time and purchase this item. http://amzn.to/2y17ufM I had to use it once…. I am surprised how many times I have grabbed this silly thing. So if this is handy…. the extension is handy also. LOL 🙂

If you are looking for sockets I just picked up some deep and shallow metric sets. Both cheap…. The Tekton are nice the Stanley came in a cheap case which did not close correctly and good luck figuring out what you are looking for. 🙂 But the Stanley were pretty cheap. I have used a 500 ft/lbs impact with no problem with the Stanley impact set…. So they are good? 🙂
