      My town has an unregistered vehicle/junk car ordinance. First instance is a warning.

      Shall be a vehicle which is abandoned, wrecked, or partially dismantled, discarded; and shall also include an unregistered vehicle, but excluding vehicles that are registered on a seasonal basis.

      The penalty for violation of this By-Law shall be a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $300 per day, per vehicle, in excess of the number allowed under § 344-2 of this By-Law. For a first violation, a person may be given a warning with no penalty if the violation is corrected within 30 days.
      The bigger eyesore in my town is boats. The harbormaster lives two doors down. He's a boat hoarder. My next door neighbor across my private lane has lawn OCD and is out there 3 or 4 days per week making the perfect lawn. I look over his back yard to the harbormaster's back yard which has a half-dozen boats that haven't moved since he bought the house 7 or 8 years ago.

      I think this area has that for vehicles parked on the street but not on private property. However when I was a kid my parents got hassled for parking their travel trailer on the driveway on the side of the house. Apparently only motorized vehicles were allowed but if it was 20 feet forward and behind the gate it was fine.

      My buddy’s coffee shop opened up a week ago and it’s inside of/partnered with a sausage and pizza restaurant. The owner is way cool and I told him about my idea for schnitzel pizza a while back before they opened. I also updated him with how our proof of concept went and he said they would definitely be offering it.

      They started doing pizzas yesterday and sold out of the dough they had. Number 1 seller was the schnitzel pizza. I’m hoping to get to try their version today. I’ve finally contributed something good to society.

      my first warning was when i had my drift car parked in the driveway for a week and a half because i had concrete working being done on the garage floor. when the warning showed up in the mail the car was already back in the garage. i just brushed it off as i never thought id have to deal with it again. i also called the code officer then too, to get clarification on what i was supposed to do with my garage kept car that couldnt be kept in the garage for a short time due to wet concrete, and never got a call back.

      I slept until 2:30 PM after watching Le Mans. Sleep schedule is all messed up.

      That was the first race I've watched all year.

      I think you should start sending them certified mail responses with questions like that and include a dead date - ie if they don't respond, you'll consider the matter closed.

      And get a lawyer. That is ridiculous.

      Also, in for when you figure out who it is. I hope the revenge is hilarious.

      Phillie Phanatic, what’s the best way to carry D batteries with me in the future? They’re too heavy for my pocket.

      I made something similar last night.

      Curry chicken with jamaican patty inspired spices.





      I love meat pies.

      When we visited New Zealand I ate about 5 per day, and when we went to Australia I drug my friends all over Sydney to hit all the top rated meat pie spots.

      After eating about 100 meat pies I found the best one I have ever had, all the way up in the blue mountains.

      Take a trip in a year or two and I’ll get you on my treat! While I am biased to our homemade version, the restaurant version was really good and I’m incredibly honored that the owner took my idea and ran with it. He’s a super cool guy and I’m happy he partnered with my friend to open this place. They’re also helping the brewery and winery gain more business.

      We added red onion on ours and they used some red cabbage that was tangy so I’m guessing pickled somehow. Nice touch to balance the umami and salty.


      I liked our gravy better but overall this was very enjoyable. We also tried the carbonara pizza which had slices garlic and runny egg with pancetta. Very tasty.

      2020 is only getting better!

      Tiger King: The Movie is out now.

      Plot: After narrowly escaping the contagious catastrophe of the CORONA ZOMBIES, ditsy American beauties Barbie (Cody Renee Cameron) and Kendra (Robin Sydney) battle their deadliest foe yet: social distancing boredom. Hooked on binge-watching a television show about a man and his tigers on a nature channel, the two ladies hatch the perfect plan to save the Tiger King himself. From the living rooms of LA to the wilds of Africa, our dynamic duo embark on a curve-flattening journey to free Joe from a fate worse than Carole Baskin.
