We got almost 10 years out of our Badger5 in our old place. We replaced it with a WasteKing which was awesome. The new house has another Badger5. I figure I'll have another WasteKing in my future at some point.
Thats pretty good...you know the number after the Badger is the amount in years they are designed to last.

It truly is. I put some of that stuff on my cat's scratching pad every few months and he goes nuts. Then he even sleeps on the thing for days. Never touches it otherwise :laugh:
My cat is crashed next to his crack bowl. He's been there since 9 AM. :)

I mainly decided to buy some instead of Kong for the road trip in two weeks. Good stuff.

I never started getting my suits tailored until last year. Makes a huge diff on off the rack suits.
This will be my first suit that isn't a tux rental or something. So I figured do it right or not at all including taking in the shirt a bit.

Yeah tailored suits is the way to go, you'll like your suit once it fits you perfectly.


No imagery but after scanning for codes, I have a failing cat on the 2003 Jetta VR6 24v plus it has been causing problems lately.

A local shop wants $1.8k in parts and labor for just for an OEM catalytic converter. The OE cat is $1.1k Yeah,no thanks :screwy:

So I called up Techtonics to make sure they have the downpipe and high flow cat in stock, which they do, so I just ordered the parts online.

It will be nice to have the DP and high flow cat to compliment my TT cat-back exhaust system and much cheaper than what the shop is asking for.

We are having a rash of CC being stolen here. I guess the ones on Priuses are the most valuable to sell to unscrupulous junk yards.

It has gotten so bad that shops are selling cat shields welded on for Priuses.

Depending where the crack head cuts the pipe it can run $2-3,000 to get it repaired at the dealership.

I have seen a few on Craigslist that guys are trying to sell for cheap after they were hit.

We don't have emissions testing in Hawaii so maybe I will run a straight piped prius for a while

Or TDI swap it!

Wife and I were talking about this the other day and the Prius specifically. Used to be that pickups and trucks were the popular targets for ease of access.

Thieves suck.

We split an entire cow with two other families. The ranch we worked with, Parish Beef, was amazing and so far I have been very impressed with the meat. We chose a processor in Dublin, TX not far from the ranch -- I don't know if I was more excited to go to Dublin to get some tasty Dublin Dr. Pepper or pick up the meat.

There was 159lbs of ground beef:



Which makes some tasty burgers.



One of the families that we split the cow with is from Michigan, and from what I've gathered beef prices are stupid high up there, so they took a week long road trip to visit some friends and come down here to pick up their share. While here, I also took them out to a local ranch to me (40 minutes away) that raises 100% Wagyu cows, that are grain and grass fed their whole life. It's the tastiest meat and he keeps his prices down, plus, if you buy from him direct he always hooks it up.

We picked up just a few steaks :laugh:



They were delicious.
