    Blocking Spam Calls on Cell Phone

    I did an internship with MBNA (now Bank of America) in Cleveland while I was in college. Part of our internship was telemarketing credit cards. I had a call where several people we’re having a conversation about murdering someone. They didn’t say “hello” in the beginning it just picked up. It...

    Higher prices !

    I can speak directly on the chips as I work with class 8 truck dealers every day. From what I’ve read/heard 86%of all the worlds computer chips come from South Korea and Taiwan. But all the precious metals used in manufacturing come from China. It’s a major issue in my industry. Freightliner and...

We had it listed for 6 months with no offers. We went 3 months with 2 mortgages and I decided to rent it out. I put an add on Craigslist and a...

    Putting power back in the Powerstroke

    Thanks guys. I’ve been told by a few people the Hydra Chip works really well on a stock 7.3 as well. Just wonder if I need to go to a bigger exhaust to keep EGTs down?

    Putting power back in the Powerstroke

    I’m needing to put some power back in my 7.3. It’s an early 99 model F350 crew cab dually with 253k on it. It’s factory other than a cold air kit and has a rebuilt trans in it with less than 40k on it. It’s currently a gutless wonder but I really like the truck and I plan on keeping it for at...

    We gave our oldest $20 when she lost her first tooth. Found her a few days later trying to yank out another one that wasn’t ready because she wanted $20 more. We’ve dropped it back to $5 now to avoid any more incidents lol

    Power Chip vs Unbelievable

    Makes sense. I like his looks as much as his EPDs. Although I would really like more docility. Do you have any calves on the ground out of him? Really curious to see more of his daughters.

    Thanks all. I checked her over and put some Terramyocin in there. It’s got a lot better so I’m assuming she just got poked. She’s got her head in the hay all the time like her mother lol
