in the 1890s, when cycling became more affordable and available to the less affluent, the office clerks and laborers, the bike disrupted the social strata by mixing the wealthy and the poor in one hobby, much like access to public parks and libraries did

May 23rd, 2017 by admin

“Professional men would bike to get out of the city, into the fresh air and particularly beyond all the hordes of immigrants who were flooding the area. And then, lo and behold, they found these same folks were following them out on bicycles.”

“The bicycle is indeed the great leveler,” reported The Century magazine in 1894. “It puts the poor man on a level with the rich, enabling him to ‘sing the song of the open road’ as freely as the millionaire.”

Tim Allen’s recent tv show, Last Man Standing… pretty funny

May 21st, 2017 by admin

very war of the sexes humor… it’s a hoot.

this is where he works, but when he goes home and is around his wife and 3 daughters he has to try and maintain his manliness in a world dominated by women, and be a good example of what men are supposed to be for his grandson, the little kid his single unwed daughter is raising in her parents (Tim Allen’s character’s house) as so many Gen X people are doing.

it’s on Netflix to stream. ABC was broadcasting it, and just cancelled it. Seems they aren’t a fan of Tim Allens adult oriented dad and husband humor. Disney isn’t about that sort of humor, they are about princesses and merchandising, and Disney owns ABC.

Despite strong ratings (2nd most watched comedy on ABC according to Variety.com) and a loyal fan base Studio 20th Century Fox Television is looking for a new home for the show.

The show didn’t have a ratings problem – it averaged 6.4 million viewers this season on Friday night, and that should be graded upward on a curve, since the overall Friday audience is typically smaller than other weeknights.

Instead of Last Man Standing, they’ll broadcast the princess drama “Once Upon a Time,” which this year drew… 3.2 million viewers, or half of Allen’s number. It’s the story of what might have happened to Snow White, Maleficent, and the other Disney fairy tale characters… Rumpelstiltskin, Peter Pan, etc.

Maybe a network or streaming service more interested in actually having a popular show will show some interest. Hopefully Netflix picks it up to run with The Ranch… another good show.

“Last Man Standing” faces an uphill battle though, after six seasons, costs for the series are significantly higher than those for younger multi-camera comedies typically are. And the buying patterns of broadcast networks this development season showed little appetite for multi-cams among most of the Big Four.

the Prosperity Special

May 17th, 2017 by admin

the Prosperity Special was a train made up entirely 24 Baldwin locomotives, part of an order of 50, left on May 27, 1922. They “headed west out of the Baldwin Locomotive Plant to East St. Louis, took the Cotton Belt Line across Texas and was switched to SP tracks in El Paso.

Thousands of spectators lined the tracks to see an almost half mile long train made up entirely of new locomotives cross the country bound for California. A large sign was erected on the lead locomotive that read, ‘The Prosperity Special’.

The special arrived at Taylor Yard in Los Angeles in early June. Half of the locomotives would stay here and run heavy freights over Beaumont Hill and Tehachapi Pass. The rest of the locos went to Sacramento for duty over the Sierra Nevadas, the train stopped to take on water before the descent into Bakersfield and the trip up the valley to their new home in Sacramento.

A couple of years ago I posted this pic of the completed 50 at Eddystone, Pennsylvania:http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2015/02/baldwin-locomotive-works-1922.html

In 1915, journalist Emily Post set out from New York to investigate whether it was possible to drive comfortably across the country to San Francisco in an automobile. 7 years later she wrote her book on etiquette

May 15th, 2017 by admin

Emily Post began her career as a writer at the age of thirty-one. Her romantic stories of European and American society were serialized in Vanity Fair, Collier’s, McCall’s, and other popular magazines. Many were also successfully published in book form.

Originally published by Collier’s Weekly, By Motor To The Golden Gate describes her travels with her cousin Alice and her son as she embarks on the 27-day car trip across America, complete with the elements that make any road trip memorable: the nauseating climbs along muddy roads, the elegance of stylish downtown hotels and the “eccentric topsy-turviness” of Midwestern cities.

Iraqi tank ends up on Ebay, and a collector bought it. He found 3.2 million dollars of gold in it’s fuel tank that was stolen from Kuwait by Iraqi’s under Hussein’s forces in the 1990 invasion (Gulf War 1)

April 15th, 2017 by admin

A tank collector in the United Kingdom and his mechanic opened his newly purchased tank’s diesel fuel tanks. Inside were gold bars totaling approximately $2.4 million dollars. Mead found the tank, an ex-Iraqi Army Type 69, on sale on eBay.

The collector and his mechanic had already found machine gun ammunition in the armored vehicle and wanted video proof in case more ammunition was found. They pulled out five gold bars weighing about twelve pounds worth an estimated $2.4 million.

Six months after the end of the war, Iraqi authorities returned 3,216 gold bars under UN supervision. Others they either didn’t know about, or missed

The exact history of this tank is unknown but it was built in the early 1980s and has just 1507 miles on the clock.
