    .... And then there is AFGHANISTAN!

    I do not really need to say any more than the title of this thread. That said, I am gonna say this anyway: Do you know how President Trump "negotiated" with the head Taliban Mullah when he said the USA would be pulling out of Afghanistan ... but leaving in a measured and strategic way...

    Do I dare ask what MUST be asked about "bordering on INSANITY"?!!

    This question is directed primarily to our dearly beloved Dem carwashers in TEXAS. But it is something we all must consider. And that is: Do you grasp the dire consequences of President Harris’ facilitating the invasion of millions of undocumented Democrats flooding across the Texas...

    A sad loss ... and how Life goes on

    It is with the most profound sadness that I share this information: Tom Coutre, my very good buddy and great friend of the self serve carwash community, died on Monday, 11/21/16. The only sliver of light is knowing that he is now reunited with the great love of his life Kim who passed 2 years...

    One of SS's Greatest Generation has passed

    Frank Piersall, one of self serve carwashing's Greatest Generation passed away last week. History should duly note that Frank was at the tip of our industry's pioneering spear. Jack Thompson may be most often credited with opening the very first coin-op SS in Ardmore, Oklahoma back in 1964...

    Hopes and prayers for those in the Southeast

    For the last couple days, our thoughts and prayers have been devoted to the victims of the horrific storms in the Southeast ... with special concerns, of course, about our "extended family" of carwasher brothers and sisters. Some (who many of Forum regulars know) live and work in those cities...

    Dog Bite, Insurance, and Lawyers ... oh my.

    We'd appreciate some informed advice. My wife, Colleen, was bitten (right forearm/elbow) by a bloodhound in December of 2009. The attack was totally unprovoked. The damn dog was HUGE --- as big as smallish bear ... at least 150 pounds. Fortunately, she was wearing a heavy coat and very thick...

    Up for some DIY "Editorializin'"?

    I'm the first to admit that the SSCWN is riddled with idiosyncrasies ... not to mention some riddles. One quirk that begs the question is --- why the hell do I write an editorial for the "Editor's Corner" ?!! I mean, for cripes sake, every issue is already ladened (for better or worse) with...

    Stop this Cap & Tax madness ... NOW!

    See you at the Tea Party!

    I'm going to be attending the Tea Party here in Grand Rapids, Michigan ... surprise, surprise. I've made a sign with a message on both sides: one side has the "Don't Tread On Me" flag popularized in our first Revolution. And the other side says, "Taxation With BAD Representation, Is Tyranny!"...

    In 2007 a young man attending a GooGoo exterior express in Michigan was killed when he was entangled in a whirling brush. And very recently, a young female attendant at a Golden Nozzle EE in Massachusetts was pulled into and almost strangled when her scarf was caught up in a brush. Pardon my...

    Take a seat in a jet airliner cockpit

    Given the fact that there are a number of aircraft pilots on this Forum ... and considering the recent miraculous soft/crash landing on the Hudson River ... and, not to mention, it's just flat out impressive --- Here's a link to a impressive 306 degree tour of a modern jet airliner cockpit ...

    Government: boon or bane to the carwash industry?!!

    I found this on the internet, so it must be the real deal. The question begging to be answered is: how will this governmentally inspired car design impact the carwash industry?!! JJJ/SSCWN Subject: The Pelosi GTxi SS/RT
