    Do You like Grits?

    No. It was Native American, forgot the name of the tribe.

    Do You like Grits?

    Wouldn't want a steady diet of grits, but they can hit the spot at times. The Old Timer's at Cracker Barrel always does the trick for me.

    Is it inflation or a rip off?

    Did you pay the dealer fee?

    Gas prices to hit $6 by summer

    Crude, gasoline, distillate, and all other petroleum stocks are at there lowest in over 5 years. Over 50% of U.S. refining is along the Gulf Coast. We are entering that time of year, so $6 gasoline is almost a safe bet.

    With Rampant Inflation, Are You Stocking Up Now In Case Prices Continue To Rise?

    I stocked up on food back at the beginning of this mess (2020). Now it is slow drawdown and replenishment, and of course perishables. I am pretty much at the mercy of inflation for food. As far as energy, I filled up gasoline in the car and cans for the mower, back in late February, early March...

    Price of diesel hits all-time high, straining the trucking industry

    Yes NORAD still exists. The Santa Tracker was inspired by NORAD, but has no current connection. The U.S. and Canada have historically had a trade totaling nearly 600B USD and the U.S. does have a trade deficit. https://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/balance/c1220.html

    Price of diesel hits all-time high, straining the trucking industry

    I would disagree, with Hungary openly talking of utilizing the rubles for oil scheme and stating at least 10 other countries will do the same. Previously these countries were openly blaming Germany for resisting sanctions, etc. while secretly thanking the Germans. Now the divisions are becoming...

    Price of diesel hits all-time high, straining the trucking industry

    I think he was banking on NATO sending troops on the ground, then cutting off N/G and Oil, which would have seriously impeded the EU economy and as most of the people in the most affected countries would have blamed the U.S., led to fracturing of NATO. I realize the headlines scream NATO has...

    Price of diesel hits all-time high, straining the trucking industry

    In another couple of weeks, we will become a net exporter of Crude Petroleum and Products for the calendar year. Crude Petroleum and Products are now at an all time high for exports. That 1 million barrel a day release from the SPR started May 1st. The only thing keeping gasoline prices down is...

    After 651 Golf Balls Hit Their Property, They Sued the Country Club

    Having seen this debate a few times and knowing golfers that don't seem to care about the direction of ball flight... I always figured the ball I struck being similar to a bullet from a gun I would have fired. When houses were within range of a potential hook or slice from my driver, I would...

    Do you shop your freezer or pantry ?

    We stocked up the freezer, filled up the pantry, and even added shelves in the den... back in 2020. Maintained the stock through early 2021 and then began drawing down on those items. Most shopping is for perishables. There is some of the stuff in the pantry and den, that might take a long time...

    Saw an interesting TV ad.... would like comments...

    That is maybe the Grand Wagoneer with anticipated U.S. annual sales in the 15K range. The Wagoneer at $59K is anticipated to be about 30K annually. Both would fall into the "niche" market category. To put that in perspective... all models of Porsche were about 70K in 2021. I would fall into the...
