Re: Active shooter has been reported at the La Plaza Mall in McAllen

Am I just not savvy enough to pull out my phone and start filming? If I'd been there, that would not be at the top of my priority list. Heck, I probably couldn't even find the video recorder. I am pretty sure I'd be getting the heck out of 'dodge'.

Re: Car repair

thanks for your assistance, gents. I followed the wire from the temp switch to the dash and discovered that jr had swapped the brake light switch and the temp light in the sockets. the brake pressure switch under the hood is bad and he had connected it back up. He learned another lesson. thanks again.

Re: Car repair

Check the bulb socket. (if you can get to it) Sounds like its shorted to ground. As I remember it, if it is a singled wire sender then the wire on the sending unit completes the ground path in an overheat condition. If you have a light with the wire disconnected from the sender then there is an alt...

Re: Car repair

the wires under the dash are less than ideal, but for 50 years old, the harness is still in fairly good shape. there have been some 'repairs' done. the harness under the hood going to the temperature sending unit is especially doctored. it could be the ignition switch, maybe? it is a nice, cool look...

Re: Car repair

... , pulled plug off of unit, still have light. ... That wire is shorted to ground somewhere between where it attaches to the sending unit and the red lamp on the dash. I'd start tracing the wire starting from the sending unit to the firewall. good idea. I'll disconnect it at the firewall and jump...

Re: Car repair

I had the water pump changed a few months ago. I had to change out the radiator and heater core due to leaks. while we were checking out the repairs, the light was on. I know it isn't hot because we flushed the cooling system before replacing everything. the water was running clear. has new radiator...

I'm pretty sure it is a wiring problem but until we can hunt down the problem, i need to add a temperature gauge. So, I've come to the smartest people on the in...

It didn't give me cancer, but I watched it during lunch. What happened next was not pretty.

Re: Chinese firm develops a hand held laser gun

My understanding the technology to build a handheld laser has been around for quite sometime, however creating a battery able to produce the power to supply it has always been the issue! We don't have hand phasers because we don't have the dilithium crystals to power them! I have some experience in...

Re: Manager at Texas Whataburger denies service to detective because of his gun

I like the idea of just leaving and report a theft. Give this a shot and let us know how it works out for you. I didn't say it is a good idea. I guess I misinterpreted, "I like the idea of just leaving and report a theft." You did. No where in the post did I say I might 'give it a shot'.

Re: Manager at Texas Whataburger denies service to detective because of his gun

If they would toss me or any other citizen out for wearing a gun, why shouldn't they kick out gun-toting cops without a uniform? Cop can either cover it or leave it in the car, just like the rest of us. Seems like he is just looking for special treatment. We've known how so many of them get turned ...
