Dip-shit of the Month winner....

I like Charlie Sheen, but for Christs sake man, get a grip. Richard Pryor once said, "cocaine is Gods way of telling you that you make too much money". O.K., if you want to destroy your career, fine, but what about the other 12 or so regulars that star on Two and a half men with you. Do you not give a shit about their job security?
Having a 36 hour party with hookers and "a guy'" who shows up with a briefcase full of coke is not the way to help your career. Being rushed to the hospital after the party is over is not my idea of a good time. Charlie, get your shit together man!

Jack LaLanne..

Rick beat me to the posting of Jacks passing....but Rick was right, Jack was the real deal. I watched this guy while waiting for Lassie or the Rifleman to come on the TV. See ya later, Jack.

Jack LaLanne, dead at 96

Jack LaLanne. Man, I remember watching this dude (along with his dog, Happy, and his wife Elaine) on TV when I was a kid in Canada. He's been around forever. People kind of made fun of him for being such a health freak and all, but he revolutionized how we take care of ourselves. If it hadn't have been for those damned jumpsuits he wore, he probably would have reached a younger audience. But this cat was the real deal, and exercised every day, right up until his death. A while back, he joked that he couldn't die because it would ruin his reputation.

Moonpie Corporate Jet

Vance picked this 12-seater turbo-jet up at a yard sale a few years back as a fixer-upper project. It's been sitting in a crate in the front yard all that time and finally the missus put her foot down and told him to do something with it.

Fortunately, thanks to reader generosity, we had enough money left over from fixing our tissue dispenser (see elsewhere) that we were able to totally rebuild this plane from the ground up and add the flashy logo.

The addition of this plane to our fleet of quality vehicles allows us to get to important events in remote places -- like the Food Lion in Mechanicsville for a six-pack of oat soda and a carton of Luckys.

NOTE: If you click on the photo, you'll see the larger version of it showing details of pilot and passengers. Also note that vance appears to be flying this jet with the window down.
