For all Prius owners… How to remove bumper stickers and car decals.
Unlike your average sticker, bumper stickers and car decals are made to last. They stand up to high winds, rain, snow, road chemicals, sun damage, and other harsh conditions to stay stuck to your favorite ride. Whether you have unwanted dealership advertising decals or the leftover political stickers of a previous owner, you can remove them from your car using a few simple household items and a little bit of patience.
|My wife and I went into town and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.
We went up to him and I said, “Come on man, how about giving a couple of senior citizens a break?”
“Illegal parking” is all he said, and continued writing the ticket.
I called him a jerk. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires.
My wife upped the ante by calling him a prick. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing more tickets, finding flaw after flaw in the vehicle that are admittedly all in violation of the vehicle code, but hardly crimes.
This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote. He finally finished, sneered at us and walked away.
Which was perfect timing, since that’s when our bus arrived. We flashed our “senior citizen” pass, got on, and went home.
It really pays off to notice cars with Obama bumper stickers on them. We try to have a little fun each day now that we’re retired.
It’s so important at our age!
A Texas health care worker who cared for Thomas Eric Duncan has tested positive for Ebola. The worker from the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital reported a low-grade fever on Friday night and was isolated and referred for testing.
Don’t be surprised if Obama orders Ebola cases in Africa be moved to the US. After all… that was his logic for handling Gitmo prisoners.
A health care worker at a Dallas hospital tested positive for Ebola in a preliminary test, the Texas Department of State Health Services said in a statement early Sunday.
The health care worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, who was not identified in the statement, provided care for Thomas Eric Duncan, the first Ebola patient in the United States, who died last week.
The worker reported a “low grade fever” Friday night and was isolated and referred for testing. The preliminary result was received late Saturday.
“We knew a second case could be a reality, and we’ve been preparing for this possibility,” Dr. David Lakey, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services, said in the statement. “We are broadening our team in Dallas and working with extreme diligence to prevent further spread.”
Health officials have interviewed the patient and are identifying any contacts or potential exposures.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital has come under scruntiny for its handling of Duncan, who first showed up at the hospital’s emergency room late on the evening of Sept. 25, complaining of a fever and severe pain. Although documents show that a nurse recorded early in Duncan’s first hospital visit that he recently came to the U.S. from Africa and his temperature reached 103 degrees, he was prescribed antibiotics and told to take Tylenol, then returned to the apartment where he was staying with a Dallas woman and three other people.
The Associated Press reported that Duncan’s temperature reading was flagged with an exclamation point in the hospital’s record-keeping system.
