    Ford wiper motor problems

    Anyone here have issues with their wipers not working on a ford? My '17 f150 started having sluggish wipers a few weeks ago. They wouldn't go all the way up and stop. They wouldn't go down. They'd stay stuck halfway. I did some research and discovered many others with the same issue. It...

    Husqvarna 350

    It's got an 18" chain on it and is plenty big enough for anything I'll need in a chainsaw. I picked it up last year for less that 200 on ebay and it hasn't let me down yet. Last fall, I put a new bar and chain on it then it basically a sat all winter unused. Yesterday I decided to tackle a...

    Button fly jeans

    Seriously?!?!?!? Like wtf? I can just picture some gay-assed clothing designer standing there saying "look at this design. With these buttons on the fly, these jeans will look just fabulous". Not realizing that they were button fly jeans, I recently bought a pair. Now picture this. A...

    A day in the life of Greta

    One crisp winter morning in Sweden, a cute little girl named Greta woke up to a perfect world, one where there were no petroleum products ruining the earth.

    Need a tow?

    What to do?

    I've been on pain meds for the past 5+ years. Tylenol doesn't do squat for me. I may as well pop a tic tac as to take Tylenol. What does work is aleve. (Or naproxen) That has created another problem though. I've been taking aleve morning and night for 3 years. While it works for pain, it's...

    Let's talk tires

    My truck is due for tires so I've been shopping around for new ones. I'm not one to have a dedicated set of winter and summer tires that need to be swapped out every spring and fall. So a good semi aggressive tire with a mud and snow rating is what I look for. Most trucks come from the dealers...
