Concrete Asphalt Patches! LOL :)

I tried lots of different patches and I also read that concrete is a bad idea…. My thoughts were all the recommend ideas were bad ideas.  🙂  So worse case I would just rip it out and concrete it correctly.

So on 4/23/2014 I used Quikrete Crack Resistant Concrete Mix and installed it where my concrete slab met my asphalt.
Today 9/20/2016…. Basically a crack at the concrete.
I later got confused what I purchased and used Quikrete Masonry Cement Type S by accident…. this is what happened.
Installed 7/6/2015…. this was wider and deeper. 2-4″ wide and 1-2″ deep.
Today 9/20/2016…. not as good as the Crack Resistant Mix but better than nothing.
I used the same Type S below but the cracks were similar to the top pictures and there was far less cracking.

Fresh Gulf Seafood…. Catfish and Shrimp Straight from the Gulf!

2 large coolers of seafood…. super hot…. in a truck…. on the side of the road…. I guess it should not matter? But the cheap steak vendors use deep freezers. Actually someone told me what the deal was with the “20 Ribeye’s for $25.00” was. They try and upsell you to more expensive steaks…. Now I feel stupid I should have known that! 🙂 It is the oldest trick in the book…. I was just thinking I have had a $1 ribeye and why would I want to do that again? 🙂

Two Really Bizarre Things Happened Today – It Involves a Snake!

So I was checking out all the bays at my wash and I see this snake…. Seems very random and deliberately placed in the bay to be nasty. So I go get a shovel and I believe someone calls me?  Alway…. I come back and the snake is GONE! SOMEONE STOLE MY SNAKE! So I went from pissed because someone left the snake to why on Earth would anyone take the snake! Seriously why? 🙂

PokemonGo…. As in GO make me some Money!? LOL :)

Okay so my kids are not obsessed with this game anymore…. But unfortunately still watch the non-award wining tv show.  🙂

I saw this from my wife’s repost of FB.  (About FB if you are not paying them money…. Basically your FB fans do not see your posts.  Just saying.)


It is interesting how the zoo has a whole event which involves no animals and just a game.  This marketing makes since.  (BTW There Dino Discovery…. is an absolute waist of money.  It should be free and I would still want a refund.  🙂 )

Here is an article about the upcoming advertising and how they are going to have ‘sponsered locations”.  But I am not sure now how purchasing a “lure” would help if you do not have a stop near your location?  (I believe a lure only works at a stop?)

Pokémon Go will soon get ads in the form of sponsored locations

UPDATE 20160822: Stupid crap….

Things I hate…. why does everyone believe their political opinions are facts? Both sides think the other side is wrong…. (just one side is wrong 🙂 )  Plus “Trickle-Down Economics” give me a break…. isn’t that just another term for socialism or communism? It just describes the government and how they provide for their friends (top) and the needy (bottom)? LOL 🙂 See now I am as bad as everyone else!

PokemonGo…. As in GO…. Call your Parents to Pick you Up!? :)


Sure I remember Pokemon as a kid…. I thought it was…. Well….  Animals living in a ball…. Why? Where is PETA?  Plus the cartoon….  Battles…. Etc.  I missed something…. Or I missed nothing at all.

So with PokemonGo can your business benefit from a stop or a gym?  The user demographics released say yes….  the majority being Women college graduates making 90k.  But logic and reliability seems like no?

My kids like the game (4 and 7 years old).  It is a great concept.  Even if you did not have to walk around in real life…. Or drive.  Probably a better idea also if it did not require movement?  Wait for the lawsuits…. Unfortunately.

I did my own checking today with my kids…. who wanted to check out a nearby park.  The park has over 15 stops and 2 gyms.  They apparently have meetings there also (sign).

We saw (It was an overcast Saturday and it poured 30 minutes after we left.):
-12 males < 40 years old playing openly (with their phone in hand walking around like their phone was a compass and they were lost.  🙂 )
-Maybe 1 female with a male…. Both playing.
-Also 6 kids (<10 years old) playing openly.

I would categorize only 1 person as not living with their parents.

The individual in the picture siting is “battling” (at least that is what my 4 year old said?)…. The individual behind him wondering around is….. Well loss?  LOL 🙂  There was a guy far left and he was the only normal guy there playing a game…. like a normal person and smiled at us.  There was also a guy directly behind us.

As for us…. We were also trying to catch an elusive monster…. A real life lizard!  LOL 🙂  It got away!

I really believe the demographic have to be flawed…. Sure 1/3 are guys that are 18-38. But 90% of the women are really 4-10 year olds. Or males that want to touch a female that makes 90k and graduated from college?  JK (But you can quote me on that.  LOL 🙂 )  Basically my theory is someone has to be installing the app for the age bracket the game is made for…. 4-15?  Plus the game requires GPS and how many 4-10 year olds have a cell phone?  The kids unfortunately have to use their parents current phones or extra phones.

Honestly anyone male over 16 should be playing ingress right?  I understand if you played Pokemon as a kid but…. Animals in a ball?  Plus the tv show?  It is a kids show…. just like Star Wars. Sorry…. but true.  🙂  I do sympathy I also lived with my Parents late in my life.  JK I love games also.  LOL 🙂

I would say the fact Nintendo is making the Pokemon Go Plus proves the age bracket of the users…. 4-15?  But someone has to drive these kids around…. so you should be able to market to them somehow?

Liquid Wrench to the Rescue!

Well my rotary switch became very hard to turn and I left my spares at my house…. So I tried Liquid Wrench.  It actually started to work right away…. But the next day it was working perfectly.  I have never tried this before…. Not sure how I am going to clean it off though?  I just assumed it would not work and I was going to replace the switch the next day anyway.

Mosmatic 360 Ceiling Boom with LED light


There was a post about the Mosmatic 360 Ceiling Boom with Led lights a while back and while I honestly love the way the Mosmatic booms look…. the post bordered on something my kid would suggest. Do not get me wrong…. I could get behind installing led lights all over your car wash then your booms. But even the pictures….  I believe it is an impossible sell unless you have led lights on your facade. Also what I do not get…. is if you have bay lights how are you going to see the boom lights?  Plus if customers can not notice a sign…. how will they notice something above their head?  🙂  This is not the point.

I starting thinking about how to make this on any boom and this actually seems pretty easy while I was drawing it.  LOL 🙂 I found a video and apparently you would need an electrical slip ring.  Amazon sells some electrical slip rings but I could not find a unit that would be perfect I believe?  LINK


I would think the same electrical slip ring concept is used in a retractable cord reel? Like this one…. CLICK HERE (I actually just purchased it but have not installed it yet. 🙂 )

Then you would just need to purchase lights…. which you can purchase almost anywhere now. I would personally get them from Amazon though because of their return policy. Like these HERE…. but I have never purchased these.
