The Canyon Lake Car Club Adopt-a-Highway Program called a SUCESSS!
21 Members at the Canyon Lake Market at 7am Saturday to walk the length of Railroad Canyon Road to pick up trash and litter. Contributing to the beautification of our City by picking up trash, litter, bottles, cigarette butts and a few other strange items. We found a tire tread, rear axle, golf balls, cantaloupe, and even a $1 bill.
Each volunteer received a safety vest, trash back and long reach pick up grabber. For additional safety, a pickup truck followed each group.
It was amazing the volume of trash collected.
So as you drive down Railroad Canyon Road please not the cleanliness and thank the Car Club for helping make Canyon Lake a BIT OF PARADISE.
Club member Hans Wegg attended the Hooter's car show and WON with his super-black GTO. Here's proof:
If you look hard you can see Han's GTO. It's there, look hard.
If Hans is showing his Hooters then I will too.
Most of you know that I started as a nuclear electrician, moved on to a power plant high voltage electrician and now manager power plants. I also had the honor being the Battery Petty Officer of maintaining all 126 lead acid batteries on board the USS Guardfish, a fast attack nuclear submarine. Fast forward to the last few years here in Canyon Lake. I've had the honor to meet our resident drag racing record holder Bob Earleywine and a few other drag racing fanatics (Randy Haapala, Jim Kipp and others) who have turned me on to the sport. Put these two things together (batteries and drag racing) and you get this guy.... check out the video and you'll see what I mean. (thanks Rett for the fascinating video).
Obviously part of drag racing is the thundering mega horse power of the Top Fuels and Funny Cars but it's interesting to see the torque these little DC motors can put out. Just watch and see....
When did Rock'n Roll start?
Some people think it started in 1953 with Ike Turner's "My Rocket 88," or Big Joe Turner with "Honey, Hush" in 1953, or "Shake, Rattle and Roll" 1954. Personally, I believe it started with the premiere of the movie Blackboard Jungle in theaters across the country, in 1955. This movie featured the song "Rock Around the Clock" by "Bill Haley and his Comets," which helped to propell Rock and Roll as a musical genre. It was reported that teenagers jumped from their seats to dance to the song.
Here are some little videos that some of you ol' timers might enjoy.
