Wow! It is hard to believe it's been 5 years. I remember hearing the live traffic report on the radio before they knew who it was. Is that Tom Chorske with Herb in the second to last photo?

Wow, has it been 5 years? I remember hearing about it on the radio up at the cabin. We came home the next day and passed the spot, kind of eerie as it happened just the day before and all the police paint, tire marks etc. were all still there. I have a vivid memory of a hockey stick stuck in the ground in the median with a Gopher hat on top. Very sad day.

The man was a legend and lives on.

So, are they putting the cables along most of the interstates in MN (in between opposite lanes) because of this tragegy?

No.... they are doing it because it helps with head on collisions by keeping vehicles from crossing the center line and into on coming traffic.

Keep the thread on topic please.

    • Reb's old girlfriend might have had a diaphragm, but you would find that one in the lower unit - not in the carburetor...
    • Most of the homeowner's expense comes from heating and cooling inside a home. Double pane windows have gasses like argon or krypton filled to displace the air between the panels. But the problem is when this leaks from the window panes and settles down at the bottom. 1) The main problem that would arise is condensation. The moisture level goes high thus causing mold, mildew and rotting wood sills. 2) If the gas leaks, the window will not provide better insulation. 3) The windows start to make squeaky sounds thus it is hard to close and open. 4) It also affects the stripping to loose. I live here in Canada. In our house, we have double pane windows in almost all the rooms. Now I could see that some of the windows to be in a foggy condition. Will it be due to the gas in the window panes? Should I need to replace the windows? I have heard that energy efficient casement windows are good compared to double pane windows. I would like to know the benefits of casement windows. Will it cut down my utility bills? Please do share your thoughts and valuable suggestions. Thanks for the time.
    • We spent last weekend in the camper, holed up hiding from the rain. Not the worst thing ever, but a hike would've been nice. Hopefully we'll have better weather over Memorial Day. It looks good now so I'm excited. 
    • I am in a confusion on which one to choose. I have anyways decided to separate the bath area from the toilet. Which one would be better? I don't have enough area in the bathroom. One of my friends said that when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation, a quick shower virtually always beats a bath. Is it true??   Although it is good for relaxing and ideal for bathing small children, I think it will be difficult for older people and people with injuries to get in and out. When it comes to the case of water heaters also I think it will be difficult to fill the tub. I think all these issues can be sorted out using a shower. Showers always need only less water. But if there is any leak, it will be difficult to fix.   I personally prefer bathtubs. Although it has many disadvantages compared to showers, the relaxation and freshness we get after bathing in a tube are very different. What is your opinion? Based on your opinion, I want to fix my decision and approach a plumbing company for installing it. Feel free to share your thoughts.
    • Mulches are really good. I have tried it in my garden once I had an issue with the weeds. It also retains the moisture in the soil.
    • Although its quite an old post, its still alive only because it is a very important talk. Most of them are behind reducing the weight. Reducing weight is not an easy task. Proper diet and exercise is very essential. Avoid red meat and oily food.  
    • I have seen just once in my life.
    • Great information. I was also looking for some tips to burn fat. I don't take too much food but I am a little bit fat. What could be the reason? Help me.
    • Way to go Andy!
    • Yep.  So far, I love it.  The only glitch so far is that the high speed doesn't work when I am traveling. The screen is clear, The side-imaging is also clear. It is VERY friendly to use!   I am very happy with it for a few hundred dollars less than Lowrance & Hummingbird.   Ref
