    Knight and Swift trucking are merging

    Indiana Jack is now leasing his own trailer, which means he has to go from door to door – no dumping off the trailer at a company yard or at the destination dock. This is going to be harder than he thinks

    • Fred Stiening says:

      Indiana Jack is on his way from Minnesota to Florida carrying containers of liquid fertilizer. His prior trip involved offloading part of his load into another trailer.

      Jack is hopefully learning that Knight was protecting him from a lot of sketchy shippers.

    Alex shot himself in the foot on Monday. His lawyer says his bravado is just a act on the radio show. I see where he likes his kids, but he just ‘F’ himself hard.
    he will be going down the ‘glenn bec’ fake -fake alley. I may listen to glenn tomorrow!
    That’s going to stick.
    He had the ‘British guy’ fill in for him today.
    Beginning of the end for Infowars ? most likely.

    Maybe Rush Limbaugh believes in what he says on the radio ?
    savage = fake ?
    Beck = fake
    Jones = fake ?
    Prager = he’s a believer.
    If Chris Plant is fake, he does a very very good job. He isn’t over the top like savage.

    well there it is, what are you guys hearing ?

      NS ( N&W), buddy, now they shipped the coal. CSX sold their Newport New coal pier that C&O had. They shipped a lot of coal too, but they also sent it to their port in Toledo. N&W bought Sandusky from the Pennsylvania in 1964 and then they had an outlet on the Great Lakes, but they turned over their great lakes coal to the Pennsylvania in Columbus. C&O had their own line to Toledo, they got it when they bought Hocking Valley in the early 1900’s.
      I don’t know where Conrail shipped their coal except to Cleavland or Lorain Ohio?
      CSX shipped a lot out of Baltimore from the B&O & Western Maryland piers, but I think they shut those down, I can’t remember, I’ll ask around.
      Coal put a lot of food on the table for people for years. Good vid. NS does just about everything heavy duty.

      In another video, Sue teaches visitors how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Sue’s 15 minutes of fame occurred seven years ago when a poster on Reddit linked to a video on how to use a handheld cheese slicer.

      Nothing gets the Reddit community excited more than discussing cutting the cheese. Of course, heavy-handed moderation and protecting females from “bullying” has pretty much destroyed reddit.

    Happy National Lineman Appreciation day!

  8. Parrott says:

    Salute , Mr. McBeeVee , “who jingles when he walks, has six extra hands on his belt, has a silver hat and can make smoke come out of his ears !”

    ” and the Wichita linemen, is still on the line ”

  9. Parrott says:

    well, Mr McBeevee was telephone I think, cause he called ‘Charlie’ at the top of the pole with his hand set and went to meet him at another location.
    Thats why he wasn’t there when Opie took Andy to look for him.
    Andy smokes a cigarette in that episode.
    Wish I had that silver hat.

    Glenn ? hell I don’t know which.

    • TheChairman says:

      Just for the sake of clarification… power lines are (should be) at the top of the pole, and communication lines are placed lower. Otherwise, ‘cable guy’ would need to de-energize the circuit for the entire street or else risk electrocution.

    • Fred Stiening says:

      Actually, I was asking about the song – he was looking for overloads, but heard voices singing on the wires

      I found the episode. The name in the credits was for a stunt double who did the climbing – and the only film/tv credit. The actor who spoke did lots of other things.

      The whole premise was a bit odd. I would think a stranger with an English accent would have stuck out in a small town like Mayberry.

    The entertainment value is not so much the video as it is the comments

    Hey : Did you all noticed that John B. Wells, Caravan to Midnight, website and server was hacked and they have taken him down, completely? Only thing he can do is post updates on Facebook. They have been working on it since last Thursday. Maybe even Wednesday. hope he gets rolling again.

    Then I saw that wednesday , April 26 Mr. Trump is going to have the ‘blowhards’ I mean the entire Senate over at the White House.
    At which time he fire up a satellite feed on the TV screen, and say to Sean Spicer,
    Hold my beer, watch this ! : )
    “The senate will be briefed by Donald Trump and his four top defense and military officials on the situation in North Korea at the White House, an event which Reuters dubbed as “unusual.” ”

    Now that the have found the USS Carl Vinson, it is expected to finally arrive off the coast of the Korean Peninsula. Ha !

    Off to ‘china- mart tomorrow boys & Girls. Get a pallet Beefstew , matches and water.

    Chris Plante on a roll today , doom !
    He played Ned Beatty ‘ Deliverance’ . I didn’t recognize it at first but it then started.
    I laughed , he was talking about the wild boar running over taliban or isis punks.
    ‘Squeal team six’ Ha ha !

      Killer, that qualifies as a niche market ? Its free for the first year in the new Jeep. I listen to the Canadian stuff a good bit just to hear the French-Canadian ladies talk. I only pick up a word every now and then, but it sure is fun to listen to.
      Have you seen the new chick doing the trivago commercials ? She tries an Australian accent maybe?
