Welcome to my little corner of the world, this is where I rant, rave, kvetch or wax on nostalgic about anything and anyone that crosses my path at that moment in time.
Sit down for a bit and read some. If you enjoy what you read, please pass the love on to others so that they may partake in the yummy goodness that lies here.

Another Election

Here we go again.

Another election year, red vs. blue (not the Rooster Teeth series based on Halo), Hillary vs Trump, etc.

We are doomed.

Supporters of both candidates are rabid, mouth foaming, ravenous zombies that are only interested in the their candidate that is closest to their party affiliation and will defend their candidate tooth and nail.

I'm not going to go into details about either of the wrong doings or positive attributes of either of the two MAIN candidates.

MAIN candidates.

There are more than two candidates.

Aside from Clinton (D) and Trump (R) there is also:

Gary Johnson (L)
Jill Stein (G)
Darrel Lane Castle (Const)
Rocky De La Fuente (Ref)
Evan McMullin (I)
Gloria Estela La Riva (Party for Socialism and Liberation)

If you are only voting for Hillary or Trump because those are the only two candidates that being pushed on us, you are making a mistake. It is not considered throwing away your vote if you vote for any other candidate that fits your belief for this election or any election for that matter.  Will that candidate win? Most likely they will not but if everybody that does not feel that warm space cadet glow from Clinton or Trump, votes for another candidate that gives you that warm fuzzy feeling, then that will be the only way we get other candidates being discussed and invited to the debates.

Please don't fall for the rhetoric that your vote will be thrown away, your vote matters and especially when you know that you voted your conscience and not for the person that has the best chance to win.  Voting for a popular candidate just to be a winner is a downfall.

Normally I stay away from politics, religious and other polarizing topics most of the time on here because I am usually either not read into the subject well enough to have a valid point of view that doesn't boil down to "because I said so"; or that I just don't care enough about it.

As far as transgender goes, I do not care if someone identifies as a man or woman while having been born as the other.

Nor do I care if they use the restroom they identify with as long as they are dressed appropriately. Let me clarify that statement, a female that identifies as a man, should not be wearing a skirt into the men's restroom; nor should a male that identifies as a woman be wearing a suit with a beard and going into the women's restroom either.

If you identify as a particular gender, dress as such.

Transgenders have been using the restroom they identify with for years without issue. If a transgender got caught using the "wrong" restroom, they would be asked to leave. Yes, worse things could happen depending on where this took place and depending on the person's actual gender.

Why is it now an issue?

Is it the entitled ideology that's been popping up lately that has pushed this?

What brought this post was a clip from an online news show called, " The Young Turks" in which, they talked about a woman that was removed from a ladies restroom because she didn't look like a woman. She didn't have identification to prove she was female so she was removed.

Back in high school I was called ma'am one time because I had long hair then. So, if I shaved and grew my hair out, could I mistakenly be tossed out of the men's restroom because I don't look like a fucking lumberjack?

Chi Town

Once again I've gone away abandoning this thing like an unwanted toy.

Well, time to find the thrill in this again.

Couple weeks ago I had a delivery going into Chicago, not in the deep downtown but the West side. The company I work for has a yard for another division there that anybody can use. Only problem is that the yard is small and was full that night but I managed to not hit shit putting the truck in a spot.

This really only set up the tone for the next day.

That night I used Google maps to get an idea of where I was going and what the layout was before getting there. This helped but didn't. See, the place I was delivering was marked incorrectly on Google maps and I should have called that morning but didn't, so I setup myself up for potential tragedy.

I ended up going down the wrong street. Which in most places, is no issue but in big cities, can lead to big trouble. My terrible was a low bridge further down the road so I had to backup to be able to swing into a lot to turn around to go back to the alley that I needed to go down originally.

Again, calling ahead would have fixed this in the beginning.

Now the consignee was a different story. There was no place to turn around or so I thought. So while waiting for them to finish loading a straight truck I was looking to see what the best course was going to be and it wasn't looking pretty.

Once the straight truck was gone, the dock workers guided me around to a tight turnaround in front of the dock. I was worried about the cars behind me and snapping a batwing off the truck. Neither happened luckily.

Everything went as usual afterwards and I was very careful going through Chicago on my way out.

Another PM

Seems like the only time I seem to be able to find time to update this little world is when I am holed up in the hotel while the truck is in the shop for the PM (preventative maintenance).  It's not like I don't have things to say or post, I come up with them when I'm out driving every day but usually don't have that much time in the evening to be able to write them down or to even put them online.  Ten hour breaks are about enough time to eat, shower, catch up with the gf and get some sleep before starting another day.

I typed that a few hours ago; I know you just read that about 3 seconds ago but it was a few hours to me.


I've been lamenting on deleting the whole thing and come up with something original in its stead.  During this process of lament, I'm reading a trucking forum, looking on FB and listening to/watching Moonshiners.

Then it hits me.

The new season of Ink Master premieres tonight.  Hot damn!  Here is something that I want to watch so I go searching for Spike on the tv here.

I'm searching.

Still looking.

Where is it?!


Ok, let's consult the Google to find the channel.  Searching leads me to one channel but I get something else.  That's not it so looking again...Ok found it, punch in the channel and same Prancing Elite show on some fucking channel I give absolute two shitty squirts about.

Ok.  Let's open the channel guide.  It should be channel 78, there's no channel 78.  Fuck.


Who doesn't have Spike?  The Sleep Inn in Stockbridge, Ga that's who.  It could be some sort of bullshit between Comcast and the owners of Spike or the hotel could be really cheap.

I don't know.

Their internet suck too.
