| O-T Lounge|| Why do some gas pumps cut you off at a preset $ amount when you pay at the pump? - poochie on 7/15/14 at 9:20 am|
$75 $90 $100
Why do the set these things to stop? Gas stations don't like money?
Also, you can't just put your card back in and finish filling up because apparently it's blocked for an amount of time?
| O-T Lounge|| What are some fun things you used to do while your parents left you in the car? - poochie on 7/14/14 at 11:44 pm|
We would turn the radio volume all the way up and the windshield wipers on full blast. That way when the car was started, hilarity would ensue!

We don't "dine out" much with two kids but we do pick up supper a few times a week. Also, we bring lunch to work as well.

So the hinges in my new boat appear to be rusting. What it looks like happened is that when the hinges were installed, the SS screws marred the plating of the hinges. Water stays in the flush mount hinge pockets and the areas where the plating has been scratched are starting to rush. I noticed it...
| O-T Lounge|| Used car pricing question regarding new tahoe model - poochie on 6/29/14 at 6:30 pm|
So I'm liking the '15 Tahoes. Right now you can get a new '14 for $35k-$40k new and $30k-$35k used.
Can I expect similar pricing next spring/summer on used 2015's or is the fact that there's a new model depressing the '14 market? Or maybe upper $30k's?

I like fishing. I like catching redfish. But there's nothing more boring to me than spending hours on the water throwing cocahoes or dead shrimp under a cork and coming back with three fish. Unfortunately that is how my typical trip goes. I fish moving tides, I hit points and cuts. I throw spinners...

I’ve been using the kind they sell at Lowes that has the built in pump. It works well enough i guess but the pump always leaks so I have to clean up after I spray inside the house.
I’d like to get something that I can put in a small potato pump that won’t leak. Are there any products that I c...
