  1. Started out with a mini bike with 4 hp Tecumseh. From there went to 1976 Hodaka Dirt Squirt 100, 1978 Suzuki RM125, 1982 Suzuki RM250 (first year with water-cooled engine), 1984 Suzuki PE175, and lastly 1998 Honda CR250R. The CR250R was by far the fastest dirt bike I ever owned. I finally decided to sell it before I got hurt on it.
  2. https://www.cbs17.com/news/local-news/sampson-county-tractor-stolen-by-thief-with-bigger-tractor-from-property-outside-clinton/
  3. Can the kind/code be deciphered to give more information about these tractors?
  4. As a bluegrass fan and picker of the music, I must say that Bobby Osborne was unmatched for his high tenor singing that blended so well with his brother Sonny and whoever else they had singing the third part. They actually paved the way for having the high tenor sing the lead part with the baritone and low tenor underneath. RIP Bobby. You were one of the greats.
  5. One that I see often is in the written form. Many times "insure" is used when it should be "ensure". Insure means to take insurance out on something. Ensure is to make certain of something.
  6. In the flue-cured tobacco area of north central North Carolina, we would prime tobacco - not pick tobacco. And it was pronounced tuh-BYE-kuh, or most would just say BYE-kuh.
  7. Research Triangle cities are Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill.
  8. Make sure chimney is clear of obstruction. Sounds like the propane torch trick did the job of clearing some of the obstruction.
  9. I had some older friends, both deceased now, that used to go to Junior Johnson's shop quite a bit in the 70's and 80's. They went one time and Junior was killing hogs. He came around the corner with a wash tub full of chitterlings.
  10. I've heard some younger people pronounce especially "eck-specially".
  11. Tony Rice released an album entitled "Tony Rice Sings Gordon Lightfoot" in 1996. It includes "Ten Degrees and Getting Colder". Here is the song list... All songs by Gordon Lightfoot "Go My Way" – 2:48 "Home from the Forest" – 4:17 "Fine as Fine Can Be" – 3:24 "Let It Ride" – 2:59 "I'm Not Sayin'" – 2:15 "Bitter Green" – 2:43 "You Are What I Am" – 2:22 "Shadows" – 3:43 "Walls" – 1:59 "Whispers of the North" – 4:17 "Ten Degrees (Getting Colder)" – 2:18 "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" – 4:59 "Early Morning Rain" – 3:04 "Whisper My Name" – 3:19 "Sixteen Miles" – 2:45 "Cold on the Shoulder" – 2:34 "Song for a Winter's Night" – 3:09
  12. I grew up driving Farmall tractors (Cub, Super A, 100, 140) so the left side shifter seemed natural to me.
  13. Nascar Hall of Fame. 400 E M.L.K. Jr Blvd, Charlotte, NC
  14. I had a Remington 552 Speedmaster when I was younger. I really liked that gun. Someone broke in my mom's house and stole it. Later on I got a 10/22 and I liked that as well. but somebody broke in my house and stole that one as well. I have a Savage .17 HMR now.
