Today's Question(s):

Lest see how handy our QOTD family is,which of the following can you do:
Change a tire ?
Jump start a vehicle ?
Change the oil in a vehicle ?
Install a ceiling fan ?
Change out a light switch ?
Install a garbage disposal ?

Extra Credit Question:

lol When was the last time you wanted to say " That's it I am going on strike" ? Was so long ago I don't remember.


Just for Fun:


What was your funniest "Out of the mouth of Babes" moment ? When DS was about 5 we had an old clunker that had a leaky radiator. I pulled into a gas station once to refill the radiator and he jumped out, peered under the car and said, "Ooooo, look, the car's going pee."





Today in History:

1933 - The singing telegram was introduced by the Postal Telegraph Company of New York City.
1935 - The Pennsylvania Railroad began passenger service with its new ‘streamlined’ electric locomotive. This engine was 79-1/2 feet long and weighed in at a hefty 230 tons.
1940 - "In The Mood" by Glenn Miller hits #1
1942 - Glenn Miller awarded 1st ever gold disc for selling 1 million copies of "Chattanooga Choo Choo"
1946 - First Meeting of United Nations in London
1984 - Clara Peller first asked "Where's The Beef?" I'm still looking.

Word of the day:
