Who knew cats and rats could be such good friends?

TechFriday: When shopping online isn’t quite right #humor

| November 15, 2019

  While looking to purchase a can of the highly regarded CRC Heavy Duty Corrosion Inhibitor, the shipping can sometimes become an eye opener. Perhaps Amazon Prime shipping is a good thing? (let’s hope this is an Ace Hardware – Google Shopping glitch?)

My one and a half armed brother heads for surgery #TBT

| November 14, 2019

I probably shouldn’t make a joke about my brother Ron going in for a surgical repair to his shoulder on Friday, but since he was the one joking with me about how he has felt like a “one and a half armed man” since summer, I continue the joke. Hopefully, he will “slice” (ouch!) right […]

Did this dad get that automotive anchor symbol wrong? #humor

| October 6, 2019

Saw this on one of my Facebook car groups and couldn’t help but posting on Twitter!

Keeping a “Sharpie” eye on Tropical Storm Jerry

So sorry President Trump (Sharpiegate) … I just can help myself when looking at weather forecast maps. #humor

When surfing or on a SUP, a dolphin can be a bully too

| July 31, 2019

Dolphins and humans have a few things in common – there are bullies in both species.

What do you do when you lock yourself out? Use a hammer?

| July 21, 2019

I am calling today “embarrass your wife day,” as she admitted to the questionable decision to open a door with a hammer when I was out of town last week (although she hid the damage for a day). Now that a few days have passed, it is a bit easier to chuckle and admire the […]

Filler post: A little – very little – bit of #humor

| June 25, 2019

A dumb dad joke #DDJ “sometimes” can be a great filler post … and as a told my friend Jeff, “if you smile and laugh, it is good for your health.” Q: What did the father buffalo say to his son when he left for greener pastures? A: Bi-son.

Experimenting with a bit of silliness … “as seen on the Internet”

| June 2, 2019

If you grew up watching Get Smart, then you know about the “cone of silence” … but do you know about the “bottle of protection?” A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across a guy work over a stove and frying pan of hot oil. If you’ve done this before, no doubt the spatter occasionally […]

Throwing the first pitch right over home plate – NOT! #video

| May 30, 2019

I’m not sure Hollywood can match this on a sitcom! You are invited to throw out the first pitch at an MLB game … and then you do this! – another LINK   https://myarchive.us/mp4/ThrowingOutTheFirstPitch_May2019.mp4

Very funny – Annalyn thinks Taylor looks like Rutledge Wood

| May 8, 2019

While watching NBC pre-Kentucky Derby coverage last weekend, Rutledge Wood appeared a few times to cover the event and according to Drew and Katelyn, Annalyn continued to point and say, "Uncle Taylor is on TV." I’m not sure if Taylor should see this as a complement or insult … but it sure was funny. As […]

How should we light our next bonfire? #TBT

| April 25, 2019

We’ve had many bonfires and parties in our backyard over the years and once again the spring clean-up is building up another pretty good sized pile. An interesting “how to light it” video gave me a ThrowBack Thursday #TBT post idea (photo from a YoungLife party in 2007). Hm … not sure this looks like […]

How far left will Democrats go as they campaign for president?

| April 17, 2019

It was a struggle to contain my frustration as I watched Senator Bernie Sanders pitch his version of Democratic Socialism to a “townhall” Q & A hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum of Fox News on Monday night. I “SO” hope that the American people have far more commonsense than to head further down […]

Official MLB Opening Day this year is March 28, 2019

| March 20, 2019

Are you looking forward to Major League Baseball for 2019? At this point, even the Cincinnati Reds look like they have a shot … although first pitch for opening day is scheduled for 4:10PM against the Pittsburgh Pirates and who knows where we’ll go from here? Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to the season and hope […]

When all is well, life is good, even if it is not always as planned

| March 2, 2019

There are still exciting adventures ahead … but as someone who always has a plan, and  dreams ambitiously, I’m detecting my life plans are changing … again. Dreams are good for the soul IMHO, so as long as ones asperations can be modified when life changes. A reality check needs to trigger flexibility in the […]

Where do you do your best thinking? In the shower? #humor

| February 26, 2019

Wintertime offers longer days for reading and thinking and some of my better thoughts happen during my morning shower … although other thoughts aren’t quite so inspirational or deep …like, “Why can’t the sliver of soap be as invigorating as that larger new bar? Do soap manufacturers purposely make the inside of a bar of […]

Just a little diesel automotive #humor to end the week

| February 22, 2019

Normally, I don’t forward emails or reposted viral images on social networks … but as a diesel car guy and TDIClub and BMW forum reader … I couldn’t resist including this as a humorous response to recent Democratic Socialists promoting their ambitious 10-year Green New Deal to combat climate change (still shocked Bernie drives this van?) 😉 […]

Joking with my son who is pondering his career options

| February 4, 2019

While chatting with my son Taylor over the weekend about the terrible news regarding the killing of a law enforcement officer in the county where he works (depressing), we discussed his career options again. His job is currently to his liking, but the challenge and opportunity for advancement and salary improvement is dependent on seniority […]

The Super Bowl and tech humor shared by a Facebook friend

| January 29, 2019

Just another "Patriots are in the Super Bowl" year again. Whoop-de-do.  Scott Bilik and I have been Internet “tech” friends for a long time … and humorously is my Twitter “Godfather.” He has suffered his share of heartache having lost his wife Michelle to cancer in 2013, but remains strong in his faith and marches […]

Tech Friday: A virtual assistant showing a little humor

| January 25, 2019

It won’t be long before virtual assistants end up in our car … question is, which one will it be? (from what I’m seeing as of 2019, it would be Amazon’s Alexa). Currently Amazon has definitely taken the lead in our home as the affordable Echo Dots are now throughout our house. I … well […]

Music Monday: Merry Christmas from the Family

| December 17, 2018

How about a classic … Merry Christmas from the Family … first recorded by the “alternative country music” artist Robert Earl Keene in 1994 (below is a live version from 2006 still on YouTube). It still makes me smile even if in today’s world it is probably not PC … nor was it appropriate to […]

Saw this and thought of our never ending battle with raccoons

Can’t say we are overly sad when seeing one more raccoon critter not trying to get into our house! RIP, buddy.

Last minute gift idea AND picking the right hose clamp #humor

| December 20, 2017

Just in case there are a few men looking for last minute jewelry gifts to give to their sweetheart for Christmas, here’s a ring idea that will pretty much guarantee that you’ll never need to worry again – you’ll either be alone … or dead! And since I know there is sure to be a […]

Semi-humorous advice from a Roomba Vacuuming Robot user

| December 17, 2017

Before you buy a Roomba vacuuming robot "used," be sure you know what it has been cleaning. Actually I couldn’t help but smile at this well told and somewhat humorous story that might also be a useful warning to others? Credit to Jesse Newton: So, last week, something pretty tragic happened in our household. It’s […]

Wishing a very Happy Birthday to my son-in-law

| December 13, 2017

I saved a cute birthday graphic just for my son-in-law Drew’s birthday wish and it is a good thing I remembered where I saved it or what I named it! Brenda and I couldn’t be more blessed than to have Drew in our family and as a husband for Katelyn … and now dad to […]

Question: Why do Swedish warships have bar codes on their sides? Answer: So when the ships return to port, they can Scan-di-navi-an. — (Merriam-Webster: Scan·di·na·vian \ˌskan-də-ˈnā-vē-ən, -vyən\ ) 

Why do some Japanese cars have such large spoilers? #humor

| May 10, 2017

Ah … so that’s why they add the picnic table to  the trunk of so many Japanese cars!   Saw this cute photo shared by an automotive journalist friend on a social network and couldn’t help but make a comment and include.

World War I surveillance DRONE – or pigeon photography

| February 5, 2017

Homing pigeons were outfitted with lightweight cameras in WWI with time-delayed shutters for aerial reconnaissance photography, likely the first "drones."  They were used very effective as messenger pigeons prior to wireless radio and effectively in communicating behind enemy lines in World War II. Interestingly the Swiss Army continued they military pigeons until it was disbanded […]

A little SNOW country #humor

| January 22, 2017

Really just a filler post since we were in snow country this weekend for my mother-in-laws funeral. The “more realistic than we care to admit” chart is just a bit of humor that will likely have you nodding your head no matter where you live. Winter weather reactions definitely differs depending where you are located.

Getting in the Christmas spirit. This is so very wrong —

| December 25, 2016

Christmas morning is almost here so I need to get this out of my system before getting together with Drew and my “soon to be a mom” daughter Katelyn. For the record, this is not an example of good parenting! Who doesn’t remember Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer?

Getting a straw stuck up your nose can be painful …

I’ve heard of getting a straw stuck up your nose … but this is ridiculous.

Presidential hopeful Gov Gary Johnson gets a little tongue-tied

| September 26, 2016

Just when you thought this years presidential campaign couldn’t get any weirder … Gov Gary Johnson steps it up a notch on MSNBC. I don’t have (or want) the full context.

A photo that is just begging for a caption

I’m sure there are some naturalists who will point out the difference between alligators and crocodiles … but the rest can work with the "crocs" thing.

Where there is more wind aloft, sail like these ladies!

I really wanted to title this “blonds have more fun” but unfortunately the members of this fine crew are brunette. On the other hand, the skipper may be detecting a little more wind aloft??? 🙂

A little earbud knot tying humor

| December 20, 2015

This well done graphic has probably be around for a while since the Apple earbud looks to be the older type … but I thought the knot tying humor was pretty funny.

There’s a long term solution to every problem

| March 16, 2014

Saw this cute story about a problem and laughed at the creative solution. According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington recently was faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they […]

How to tell if you are mechanically inclined (semi-edited)

| September 9, 2013

I chuckled when I saw this top ten list appear in a hands-on automotive forum (there were more than 10, but I shortened it). It is pretty accurate.   Wherever you go, you hear your wife say "let my husband help you fix that." You have many tools (and multiple toolboxes), including special service tools […]

Advice: Laugh a little more each day for your own health

| July 24, 2012

If laughing helps a person live a long and healthy life, my friend Jeff will easily make it to a healthy 100 years! Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after. Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress […]

A little light humor for the day

I would make a few jokes about this … but it would be sure to offend someone AND I’m sure you can think of a few on your own.

According to this there aren’t many reasons to check email

Just a little Christian humor …

Thanks Jeff … although not sure I appreciated the “this reminds me of you” comment!

And you think your cable bill is too much …

| March 25, 2011

Although I regularly complain about my cable bill … as well as all my other semi-necessary monthly bills … I’m thankful it isn’t $16.4 million like Daniel DeVirgilio’s recent bill. BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (AP) — Try fitting this cable bill into the monthly budget. An Ohio man says Time Warner Cable told him he owed the […]

President Obama’s ‘word of the day’

Helping to “Spread the Stupidity”

I’m not a regular email ‘forwarder,’ but occasionally one tickles my funny bone. Thanks D. Only in  America … do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy  cigarettes at the front. do people order double  cheeseburgers, large fries, and […]

Humor: “Bring a chicken to the doctor” – funny campaign ad

| April 24, 2010

This campaign ad is juvenile even for a Harry Reid, but it’ had me laughing pretty hard. Sorry Sue Lowden, even though I’d comfortably vote for your over your opponent Senator Harry Reid (if I lived in Nevada), it’s just too funny not to share. Hmm, I wonder if my daughter will be able to […]

Video: Humorous YouTube “Car 4 Sale” idea

I’ve been pondering how we will eventually sell my wife’s 1998 Toyota RAV4 with a quarter million miles? I think this might work!  😀

Worth a chuckle from Wired Magazine

| September 24, 2009

Wired Magazine‘s Streeter Seidell offered a bit of tech humor with the 10 Best Things We’ll say to Our Grandkids, with an illustration by Nishant Choksi (well I probably won’t say it … but perhaps my kids will). 😕 1. Back in my day, we only needed 140 characters. 2. There used to be so […]

Surfing the Banzai Pipeline … kinda

Haven’t posted a video clip for a few days and thought I would post this one for Taylor — he would rather be one of these rats. (Does PETA regulate rats?)

Citroen dancing Transformer commercial

| May 4, 2006

This post is for Jason who commented that he enjoyed the Vee-Dub television ads that were posted in February (or was it the VW TDI ad?). If you like them you might like this one; besides being a creative ad, the 2006 Citroen C4 was voted 2006 World Car Design of the Year, at the […]

Another Ford Sportka Commercial

| February 9, 2006

A couple days ago I posted a commercial (Video Clip for Bird Lovers) and figure it only fair to return the politically incorrect post. This one is for cat lovers. 😉 — [hana-flv-player video=”https://s3.amazonaws.com/mdbav/FordSportka_bird.mp4″ width=”400″ height=”autow” description=”” player=”5″ autoload=”false” autoplay=”false” loop=”false” autorewind=”false” splashimage=”https://s3.amazonaws.com/mdbav/FordSportka_bird.jpg” /]
