The real problems with a Homeowners association!

Our homeowners association is a total joke for serious reasons.  But my problem is this…. FACEBOOK!  15 posts of bitching and Craigslist post.

My favorite….
“Good afternoon,
I just want to remind everyone (and remind your kids) to use the proper neighborhood access to the nature trail and river. It is located at the end of…. I am an ass Lane. Please don’t cut through other neighbors houses.”

Sure this happened to me…. I cried my self to sleep for a month after I called the Police.  SERIOUSLY I hope this pisses me off this bad one day!  LOL 🙂  BTW I caught someone urinating on my fence (like a dog) also…. I thought that was being GREEN so you have to allow that right?  JK 🙂  I just yelled at him.

Well today…. Some annoying? kid got kicked out of their house to attempt to play the drums.  NO ONE COMPLAINED ABOUT ANNOYING PARENTS POLLUTING THE ENVIRONMENT ON FACEBOOK!  WHY!  WHY!

BTW sure I am acting like a baby (like them) but our family had to stay inside while the onslaught of hidious sound assulted us!  🙂

Stupid Hat Listing or Stupid People…. You be the judge? :)

I can not state at what point people because totally stupid…. but I believe it has happened. LOL 🙂 BTW This is the link

Does this stupid $13 hat include a $400 GoPro Hero5 Black for FREE? LOL 🙂  2 people actually asked this question…. Why?

What is always fascinating to me is the person that will ask a question which is blatantly obvious and wait for an answer (I assume) instead of reading the provided title or description.  “Is the pen 1mm or less than 1mm?”  Why not read or look at a picture?  LINK it is scary.  LOL 🙂  I could actually go on….  I will stop.  🙂


I believe I was in Gadsden AL?  🙂  This was obviously a hand wash place with a hose and bucket.  Their name was “God’s Grace” Car Wash…. but their sign said “KEEP Moving FORWARD”.  What does keep moving forward ever refer to?  I like the style though.  BTW…. Yes they were still washing cars.  It was just raining today.

Looks like an old service station I guess…. $20 for “most cars” and $25 for “most trucks”.  I am not sure what that even means?  Do they accept offers…. “How about $15?”  That is normally how I get my lawn cut.  LOL 🙂

Gadsden, AL Self Serve

I am not saying my wash is any better or worse…. This self serve is behind a Exxon gas station: 936 Rainbow Dr, Gadsden, AL 35901

2x ROWE BC-200 I hate to say it…. But there is a 92.94% change that 1 or both do not work. 🙂 One has a pushed in acceptor also…. so 99.992% right? 🙂 Which means no stacker I believe.

This Turtle Wax sign is pretty cool.

Does everyone except for me purchase nice drill bits? Well…. These feel like nice drill bits! :)

Now I just got these: Walter Surface Technologies 01E618 29-Piece Round Shank Jobber’s Length SST+ Drill Bit Set, Orange Like today…. a couple hours ago.  🙂  So these might all break and be total crap…. but I have not touched a drill bit that felt this nice before.  The cutting edges are also very sharp all the way up the bit…. to the touch.  Unlike Dewalt, etc. brands, big box bits.  Also the price is $2.37 a bit…. you probably pay more for crappy bits?  These have to be better…. I would think?  LOL 🙂  I think they claim to last x50 longer than the other stuff I purchased in the past…. so 50 holes I guess?!  LOL 🙂  The bar is really low for me…. I just want the job at hand done.  Maybe the next also?  Using 1 drill bit total!



How do I run air tools from my truck over DC? CHEAP! LOL :)

Has anyone wanted to run some air tools from their truck?  What was your setup?

These are some tools I was to try and use:

Ingersoll Rand 1/4″ Air Die Grinder 3107G  3 CFM
Ingersoll Rand 326G 3-Inch Edge Series Cut-off Air Tool  6 CFM
Ingersoll Rand 170G 3/8-Inch Edge Series Drive Air Ratchet  3 CFM

I was thinking about trying a small DC air compressor…. around 3 CFM @ 90 PSI?  The Puma PD-1021 runs off 12v DC and I would not need to run an inverter (I believe I would need a 2000 watt also and I wanted to try and get a Xantrex inverter).

Then if I get an inverter the question is…. (Inverter I believe is $350-500?)
1) Should I purchase an air compressor? Or just purchase corded tools for the inverter?
2) If I plan on purchasing an inverter why not repurchase everything cordless! LOL 🙂

This idea seems like a bad idea?  Or an expensive plan.


Is it just me…. Or does the clean up guy union require payment before the last day of the month?  I also seem to get a reminder a day before also.  (I believe this was my fault for paying before the last day over the years though?)

Also why is wanting to pay on the 1st of the month bad?  The last guy hated this idea also.  What is interesting to me is they want the money before the end of the month…. but do not want the money weekly?


Unitec Wash Select II Integration with KWIK TRIP (OPTION)…. WHAT?!

If only the car wash industry was more like the computer industry or like the vending industry…. Kwik Trip (I assume is a gas station chain?  Which also brokered a deal with Unitec?) would not be the only fully integrated add on product.  (At least when there is a ribbon cable attaching to a daughter board I would call that integrating!  LOL 🙂 )

What I will never understand is why someone does not HIRE SOMEONE to make an entry system for them?  If you need multiple units (more than one 🙂 ) you can hire a professional company that does this for a living (all the time).  I am not just talking smack either…. I talked to a couple.  One I would trust more than Unitec (no offense).  It makes you wonder if any car wash “tech” manufacturer actually produces anything?

But like any product…. (look at an American entry system…. sure I went there.  🙂 )  You need an engineer or technical designer which knows how the industry works, how customers work and what electronics to use.  Just to submit all the needed components to a sourcing company.  Which I believe do not exist…..  This is why I realize no one in the car wash industry selling car wash “tech” products have ever worked at a car wash.  LOL 🙂  But they all have great sales people!  (I do believe older tech products are different…. again I could discuss this topic indefinitely I believe.  🙂 )

I could also debate for hours what is wrong with car wash entry units…. also what is good.   Having Windows or Linux on your entry unit does not make anything better…. only quicker out the door.  Sure it is better for multiple function devices like your phone / computer.  Not static embedded functions…. or functions that should be embedded.

When I Purchase a Quality Product I MUST Brag about it! LOL :)

So my Wife purchases my Kids Mini Boden clothing ALL THE TIME!  Seriously…. Why?  Wal-Mart sells clothing from England/China?  🙂  So why can’t I purchase Boden clothing also?  (Boden is for “male” like adults…. they have a naming issue I believe.)  Well I believe there might be a reason you should not purchase Boden clothing….. Just read the label on some > $70 shorts.   LOL 🙂

This is no joke:  “When there’s a fraction too much friction colour can rub off onto lighter fabrics.  So Please be careful with pale handbags, avoid white sofas and never wear this garment to bed.”

The problem here is…. I carry a pale handbag, own a white sofa, my car also has all white interior and I love wearing shorts to bed!  WTF  LOL 🙂  Seriously the color RUBS OFF!  I sent them back…. But I did keep some stupid looking swimming shorts (I believe all swimming short should look stupid. 🙂 ).  Which BTW had no warning?  Luck for me…. because I like to also scoot on my butt all over my house on our white carpet!  LOL 🙂
