An Educational Posting..........

Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient of WD-40 is?

Don't lie and don't cheat.

Srsly....you Know how cranky I can get......

WD-40. Who knew; I had a neighbor a few years back, who bought a new pickup. I got up very early one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides of this beige truck (for some unknown reason).

I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news. He was very upset and was trying to figure out what to do.... Probably nothing until Monday morning, since nothing was open....course, Me, I was trying to figger out Who did it and what to do to Him........

Another neighbor came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on the truck.

I'm impressed! WD-40 who knew?

'Water Displacement #40'.

The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts.

WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes from the project that was to find a 'water displacement' compound..

They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40.

The Convair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts.

Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you...

When you read the 'shower door' part, try it. It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door. If yours is plastic, it works just as well as glass. It's a miracle! Then try it on your stove top ... Viola! It's now shinier than it's ever been.

You'll be amazed.

WD-40 uses:
1. Protects silver from tarnishing.
2. Removes road tar and grime from cars.
3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.
4. Gives floors that 'just-waxed' sheen without making them slippery.
5.. Keeps flies off cows.
6. Restores and cleans chalkboards.
7. Removes lipstick stains.
8.. Loosens stubborn zippers.
9. Untangles jewelry chains.
10. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks.
11. Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill.
12. Keeps ceramic/terra cotta garden pots from oxidizing.
13. Removes tomato stains from clothing.
14. Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots.
15. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.
16. Keeps scissors working smoothly..
17. Lubricates noisy door hinges on vehicles and doors in homes.
18. It removes black scuff marks from the kitchen floor!

Use WD-40 for those nasty tar and scuff marks on flooring. It doesn't seem to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard to get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.
19. Bug guts will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly! Use WD-40!
20. Gives a children's playground gym slide a shine for a super fast slide.
21. Lubricates gear shift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on riding mowers...
22.. Rids kids rocking chairs and swings of squeaky noises.
23. Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open..
24. Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close.
25. Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as vinyl bumpers.
26. Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles.
27. Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans
28. Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling.
29. Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running smoothly.
30. Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools.
31. Removes splattered grease on stove.
32. Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.
33. Lubricates prosthetic limbs.
34. Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell).
35. Removes all traces of duct tape.
36. Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain.
37. Florida ’s favorite use is: 'cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers.'
38. The favorite use in the state of New York , WD-40 protects the Statue of Liberty from the elements.
39. WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a little on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time. Also, it's a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just that purpose. Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.
40. Use it for fire ant bites.. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.
41. WD-40 is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray on the mark and wipe with a clean rag.
42. Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, satur ate the lipstick spots with WD-40 and rewash. Presto! The lipstick is gone!
43. If you sprayed WD-40 on the distributor cap, it would displace the moisture and allow the car to start.

P.S. The basic ingredient is FISH OIL.

I've used WD40 for many things, including those listed.....as my Grandfather was often quoted, "If it sticks, WD40, everything else, duct tape or baling wire"....heh, the good old days.....

Try it.

This is ENCOURAGING.....

Back when I started this Blog....wow, Three years ago, and as you few long time Friends and Readers know....well, I was going through a 'crisis' of sorts.

I went to counseling, and read, and studied and took 'personality' tests like the one in the sidebar.....all to figure out just exactly WHAT must be wrong with ME....

Come to find out.......there's not much wrong with me.

I've let those concerns drop by the way side in the last few years, got married again, got more in touch with who I really am.....

But once in a while....yup, just once in a whaile, I wonder, as many of us do.....

Am I crazy?

Well, I can assure you that I am not. I've developed a new test for personality disorders, and am going to attempt to copywrite it. Go ahead and take it yourself, it's very simple:

1) Watch the Video Below.
2) Tell me in the Comments if this is something you think would be fun to do.....
3) I will diagnose your level of insanity.



I'm sure that at least One of you is totally Bat Shit Crazy.......

From my E-mail........

WW II - Little Known History

You might enjoy this from Col D. G. Swinford, USMC, Ret and history buff. You would really have to dig deep to get this kind of ringside seat to history:

1. The first German serviceman killed in WW II was killed by the Japanese (China, 1937), the first American serviceman killed was killed by the Russians (Finland 1940); highest ranking American killed was Lt Gen Lesley McNair, killed by the US Army Air Corps. So much for friendly fire.

2. The youngest US serviceman was 12 year old Calvin Graham, USN. He was wounded and given a Dishonorable Discharge for lying about his age. His benefits were later restored by act of Congress.

3. At the time of Pearl Harbor , the top US Navy command was called CINCUS (pronounced 'sink us'), the shoulder patch of the US Army's 45th Infantry division was the Swastika, and Hitler's private train car was named 'Amerika.' All three were soon changed for PR purposes.

4. More US servicemen died in the Air Corps than the Marine Corps. While completing the required 30 missions, your chance of being killed was 71%.

5. Generally speaking, there was no such thing as an average fighter pilot. You were either an ace or a target. For instance, Japanese Ace Hiroyoshi Nishizawa shot down over 80 planes. He died while a passenger on a cargo plane.

6. It was a common practice on fighter planes to load every 5th round with a tracer round to aid in aiming. This was a mistake. Tracers had different ballistics at long range so if your tracers were hitting the target 80% of your rounds were missing. Worse yet tracers instantly told your enemy he was under fire and from which direction. Worst of all was the practice of loading a string of tracers at the end of the belt to tell you that you were out of ammo. This was definitely not something you wanted to tell the enemy. Units that stopped using tracers saw their success rate nearly double and their loss rate go down.

7. When allied armies reached the Rhine, the first thing men did was pee in it. This was pretty universal from the lowest private to Winston Churchill (who made a big show of it) and Gen. Patton (who had himself photographed in the act).

8. German Me-264 bombers were capable of bombing New York City, but Hitler decided it wasn't worth the effort.

9. German submarine U-120 was sunk by a malfunctioning toilet.

10. Among the first 'Germans' captured at Normandy were several Koreans. They had been forced to fight for the Japanese Army until they were captured by the Russians and forced to fight for the Russian Army until they were captured by the Germans and forced to fight for the German Army until they were captured by the US Army.

AND LAST....

11. Following a massive naval bombardment, 35,000 United States and Canadian troops stormed ashore at Kiska, in the Aleutian Islands. 21 troops were killed in the assault on the island. It could have been worse if there had been any Japanese on the island.

Well, This is Horse Crap........


US appeals court panel: Law against faking receipt of military medals is unconstitutional.......

A three-year-old federal law that makes it a crime to falsely claim to have received a medal from the U.S. military is unconstitutional, an appeals court panel in California ruled Tuesday.

The decision involves the case of Xavier Alvarez of Pomona, Calif., a water district board member who said at a public meeting in 2007 that he was a retired Marine who received the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest military decoration

This seriously pi$$es me off. The Medal of Honor......

Petty Officer Second Class (SEAL) Michael A. Monsoor received the award for his actions in Ar Ramadi, Iraq on Sept. 29, 2006.



On that day, Monsoor was part of a sniper overwatch security position with three other SEALs and eight Iraqi Army (IA) soldiers.

An insurgent closed in and threw a fragmentation grenade into the overwatch position.

The grenade hit Monsoor in the chest before falling to the ground.

Positioned next to the single exit, Monsoor was the only one who could have escaped harm. Instead, he dropped onto the grenade to shield the others from the blast.

Monsoor died approximately 30 minutes later from wounds sustained from the blast.

Because of Petty Officer Monsoor’s actions, he saved the lives of his 3 teammates and the IA soldiers.

Taking false credit for being an equal to a Man like Monsoor is simply despicable. I hope you rot Alvarez.

My Dad, the SarMajor, as many of you Folks know, received Three Purple Hearts, One Silver Star and Two Bronze Stars in the Battle for Peleliu in WWII.

Tomorrow is his 89th Birfday. Happy Birfday, Dad, see you over Labor Day.......

These Men earned their Medals. I believe sincerely, no matter what the Circuit Court just ruled, that Alvarez earned a major kick in the nuts.

Corporate Stupidity......

....run amok.....


God Squad told to cease-and-desist
Virus infected your computer? Call the Geek Squad.

Temptation infected your soul? Ring up the God Squad - just don't expect Father Luke Strand to show up in the car he's been driving since his days in the seminary.

The young priest's attempt to add a little fun to his ministry has apparently run foul of some corporate lawyers who care more about strictly enforcing trademarks than eternal salvation.

Best Buy, the Minnesota-based electronics retailing giant, recently sent Strand a cease-and-desist letter concerning his car. The black Volkswagen Beetle has oval door stickers that read "God Squad" in a logo very similar to the black, white and orange logos on black-and-white Geek Squad Beetles driven by the computer and electronics trouble-shooters.



The car has been around for at least two years, when it was featured in a photo of Strand and his then-colleagues at St. Francis de Sales Seminary. The car has a white square on the hood, to mimic a priest's collar, and the license plate reads, GODLVYA.

Monkeys............

.......I really hate monkeys.....



....But I heard of an interesting experiment. Rather on the order of Pavlov's dog. And long time readers know that I really enjoy psychology.....

.....Well, and messing with monkeys!

Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all the other monkeys with cold water. After a while another monkey makes the attempt with same result, all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another Monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs.

To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the snot out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one.

The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment with enthusiasm.

Likewise, replace a third original monkey with a new one, then a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs he is attacked.

Most of the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs OR even why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey. Finally, after replacing all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, no monkey ever again approaches the stairs to try for the banana.

Why not?

Because as far as they know, that is the way it has always been done around here.

And that, my fellow monkeys, is how Congress operates - And is precisely why we need to replace all the original monkeys this November.

Two and a Half months until we make some really pi$$ed off Monkeys.....

WOLLF'S APOSTROPHE AND DAILY REMINDER SHEET


Yup......ol'Wollf has been doing some thinking again......

And guess what? You Folks have to suffer my writing...... An "Apostrophe" is kind of like a minor epiphany....so I said to myself, "Self.....

You have to embark on a ruthless personal inventory.

If you want to know your children better, the first building block is to know yourself better.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking this is a task you have already accomplished.

Many men who think they know themselves well are really quite familiar with the person whom they wished they were.

Your children are unlikely, beyond about the age of four, to be impressed with who you think you are, while also possessing really good takes on who you actually are.

Every negative habit, memory, unresolved grievance, prejudice, “hot button” that you keep hidden within you will act like a filter and distort what and who your children are in your eyes (and impact your other intimate relationships).

This does not mean you have to spill your guts and divulge every dark secret in some small group (although this would not be a bad idea if you can find the right kind of group) but it does mean that you have to stop fooling yourself about who and what you are.

Come to terms with the fact that our children are seldom as impressed with us as we ourselves are.

Appreciate that just because you want to get closer to your children it does not mean they, at the same time, will have similar inclinations toward you.

If you are insistent (pushy, demanding) with a reluctant child, your attempts are likely to be counter-productive. Being close to dad in the heart-to-heart, arm-over-shoulder kind of way is more the fodder of sitcoms and movies than it is a part of real life.

Real-life-close-to-dad is more about the capitalizing on conflict and turning it into a means of greater understanding and love.

It’s about being committed to learning from each other, and long periods of silence.

It is about sometimes feeling used, sometimes feeling taken for granted.

It is about learning to appropriately speak up.

It is about knowing what to address and when and how to address it.

It is about knowing what to ignore.

It is about knowing when to be loud and when to be soft. It is about knowing when to be visible and when to be in the background.

It's about Always having their backs...

Television sitcoms can go from conflict to resolution in thirty minutes (including six to eight minutes of commercials). In real life, successfully loving children can take forty years.(in the case of my Father, the Sar'Major....more like 55 years....)

Resentment can only be overcome by understanding yourself, your failings, your strengths and not projecting your own self criticism onto your children.

By accepting the fact that resentment is acceptable if contained, anger has no chance to grow and guidance with Love can be effected.

And just sose you know.......I was also thinking about the Marital relationship. Actually, that's probably what brought on the Apostrophe in the first place.

We as Humans have to work on our Humanity Folks.

Love, whether it be between a Father and his Children, or a Husband and his Wife is something that has to be worked on, nutured, fed, and of course.....Examined.

There......*phew*, emptied that part of my brain. When I don't post this stuff, little gremlins tend to create havoc in my ADD brain.

Can't help myself.......

....I just found this too humorous not to share......

A wife and her husband were having a dinner party for all the major big shots of Rome. The wife was very excited about this and wanted everything to be perfect. At the very last minute, she realized that she didn't have any snails for this dinner party, so she asked her husband to run down to the beach with the bucket she was handing him to gather some snails. Very grudgingly he agreed. He took the bucket, walked out the door, down the steps, and out to the beach.

As he was collecting the snails, he noticed a beautiful woman without a bikini top strolling alongside the water just a little further down the beach. He kept thinking to himself "Wouldn't it be great if she would just come down and talk to me."

He went back to gathering the snails, when all of a sudden he looked up, and the beautiful woman was standing right over him. They got to talking, and she invited him back to her place. They were at her apartment, a way down the beach, and they started messing around. It got so hot and muggy that he was exhausted afterwards and passed out.

At seven o'clock the next morning he woke up and exclaimed, "Oh no! My wife's dinner party!" He gathered all his clothes, put them on real fast, grabbed his bucket, and ran out the door. He ran down the beach all the way to his apartment. He ran up the stairs of the apartment. He was in such a hurry that when he got to the top of the stairs, he dropped the bucket of snails. There were snails all up and down the stairs.

The door opened just then, with a very angry wife standing in the doorway wondering where he's been all this time. He looked at the snails now crawling all over the steps, looked at his wife and then back at the snails and yelled:

"Come on guys, we're almost there!"

THAT, my friends is the long version definition of Quick Thinking.....

How to Legalize the Illegal.........


.......while not really doing it "Legally".......

A draft memo, first obtained by Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley's office from the U.S. Customs & Immigration Services, outlines ways the administration was exploring to legalize swaths of illegal immigrants "in the absence of Comprehensive Immigration Reform." The memo describes how to, "reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States without authorization."
