Cannot Remove Jeep Ignition Key

Probably a bit of background is in order. I bought this Jeep used on-line and sunk a ton of parts into it to save it from the auction. According to the sticker it was originally sold at some Fairway dealership in Kissimmee St. Cloud. I assume the original owner towed a boat which was too ^)(*&)(*ing heavy for it because the springs still need to be replaced. They put a K&N air intake and some kind of performance exhaust on. I’m not certain they didn’t chip the motor too because it seems to run different than most other Jeeps I know with the same 4.7 HO engine. Some time last summer it started having an intermittent problem when it came to getting the key out of the ignition. Seemed to happen more… Read more >

So You Think You Know Agriculture?

Growing up on and still helping with a family farm has kept me rather in touch with rural life. True, there are a whole bunch of trendy things going on which we’re not doing because they appear to be designed more for John Deere to sell unneeded equipment than to help a farmer’s bottom line. Honestly, the bottom end of the trend coming from the other direction has almost caught up to where we still are, so, we are both behind and ahead of the curve. As a general public we hear about alums making huge donations to keep the steroid crowd knocking heads on the grid irons of America, but we don’t often hear about the donations which help the other departments.

Twenty of Two – The Infamous They – Pt. 41

Opening her eyes she said “I told you what has become of this housing park. Personally I never cared one way or the other when it came to guns. Lots of people around here hunted. During pheasant and shotgun deer season you could find at least a dozen guns in the pickup trucks in our high school parking lot. Nobody thought anything of it. Of course teachers could still spank kids then. Despite all of the flower child studies, it does correct behavior. Yes, sometimes teachers just liked to spank one or two kids far more than they should, but the flower power generation threw the baby out with the bathwater.” Sitting up she continued “You got a three day suspension for fighting in school back then. If your parents… Read more >

Twenty of Two – The Infamous They – Pt. 40

“What other advice do you have for me?” “Don’t get anymore tattoos” I stated. “Seriously? Have you seen the kids these days?” she asked. “Most of them have nasty looking tattoos done by a friend who could barely finger paint. Even if you somehow end up with a good one, as you get older or put on a bit of weight it will deform and look like Hell. Yours have actual meaning. The names of your children and their birth dates. The Marine corp tattoo which I now know is a spousal marker. Those are fine and you mostly keep them hidden I suspect.” Melony nodded confirmation. “Anything more than that is going to turn off someone old enough to have the kind of income to support a wife and… Read more >

Living Life Without a Second Chance

No one’s perfect. We all need another shot at the goal once in a while, and even then, we must live with the consequences of the miss. Feel bad for the guy who never gets a second try. Like you, I’ve sat in the audience and listened to a lot of leaders over the years. Most have a common trait when addressing employees, their fighting unit, or even, the company’s sales representatives heading back to their districts. It doesn’t matter who or what they are because we’ve all been in the peanut gallery when our leaders use “podium speak.” Out their mouths come the platitudes and banalities, the substitutes for everyday talk. The speakers generally avoid four-lettered expletives and gloss over untruths. Feel-good postulations abound and are designed and usually… Read more >
