re: Ok boys, who cut their grass today? - Ramblin Wreck
Cut mine last night after the temp went below 100 degrees. Here is a useless spin off question - Do you mow first or trim first and why? I trim first. It makes mowing seem a lot quicker when I trim an extra distance out from everything....

re: Barron's Article - ExxonMobil stock could increase by 40% - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]Well about Exxon’s new directors…[/quote] Yep, at least ExxonMobil hasn't divested of their refineries and gone as far as BP and Shell are. Time will tell, but if oil does what the writer predicts and the stock does that well, I think the new directors will not necessarily represent the ...

[link=(https://www.barrons.com/articles/exxon-stock-dividend-growth-gains-51623774067)]Barron's[/link] Looks like this is a pay wall article. I was able to read it on my iPhone stock app when looking at related articles to XOM. Basically predicts that the company will be able to continue to inc...

re: Second time this month that my dead dog has been preapproved for a loan - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]what sort of a-hole just gives up his dog to someone else?[/quote] Thinking back, it was more than 10 years ago. We didn't just dump him at the pound, we gave him to a relative. We had three young kids, which meant the dog didn't get much attention from us, and the neighbors were threat...

re: Second time this month that my dead dog has been preapproved for a loan - Ramblin Wreck
I received mail addressed to my dog from a loan company. It is for a student loan from Sallie Mae. Guess they think Shadow, God rest his soul, may want to go to obedience or police school....

Second time this month that my dead dog has been preapproved for a loan - Ramblin Wreck
He died about four years ago, but I gave him to a relative about ten years ago. He has never lived in the state I currently reside in. I never knew his credit rating was so good. Should I make a paw print on the signature line and mail it back?...

re: John Z. Delorean - Ramblin Wreck
I haven't seen that particular documentary, but have seen a few. It goes to show that if certain people in our government or others with connections want to have you prosecuted and destroyed, they can do it....

re: 40 cities named as pending a housing crisis, Louisiana's big 4 all made the list. - Ramblin Wreck
I'm not familiar with what typical percentages are. What type of crisis? Is the concern on the low percentage of availability or the the percent of loans in default? They seem to me to be two completely different issues. Low availability means higher prices while a higher delinquent rate would...

What is the best contest prize you have ever won? - Ramblin Wreck
I never won anything valuable, but use to call radio contests all the time growing up. It was always pretty difficult being the 1st or whatever caller because we had a rotary dial phone. :lol: However, I did win a couple of 45's and such. Anybody ever win anything cool?...

re: Name a song that was popular, but wouldn't have been if people paid attention to lyrics - Ramblin Wreck
Just so this post doesn't get too creepy, I don't think people realize that the song American Woman by The Guess Who is an anti-American song. The Guess Who were Canadian and it is was written during the Vietnam War, but is basically telling Americans that Canadians don't need them and to leave the...

Name a song that was popular, but wouldn't have been if people paid attention to lyrics - Ramblin Wreck
Every now and then I hear once popular songs on the radio that I liked the tune to years ago and suddenly realize what the lyrics are about and question why it was a hit. There are lots of examples. One that comes to mind is Hot Child in the City by Nick Gilder. Though some may argue that it was ...

re: When looking to buy a set of tires, do this first - Ramblin Wreck
A few years back I bought a 1980 Porsche 911 that was advertised to have 88,000 original miles on it. I was skeptical, but did notice that the tires had plenty of tread on them and after checking the serial number as you pointed out, saw that they were manufactured in 1990. I changed the tires but...

Best restaurant you have stumbled across in a small town or off the beaten path - Ramblin Wreck
Guess this could be posted on the food or travel board, but I'll put it here. The wife and I enjoy taking back roads to locations to explore the areas. Every now and then we find really cool restaurants or shops. The best find most recently was when we drove to Gulf Shores down from Fairhope. We...
