Police officers working with the DARE program have issued this Warning:

If you are driving after dark and see and on-coming car with no headlights on, DO NOT FLASH YOUR LIGHTS AT THEM!

This is a common Bloods member "initiation game" that goes like this:  

The new gang member under initiation drives along with no headlights, and the first car to flash their headlights at him is now his "target.”He is now required to turn around and chase that car, then shoot and kill every individual in the vehicle in order to complete his initiation requirements. Police Depts. across the nation are being warned. Their intent is to have all the “new bloods nationwide drive around on Friday and Saturday nights with their headlights off.  

In order to be accepted into the gang, they have to shoot and kill all individuals in the first auto that does a courtesy flash to warn them that their lights are Off. Make sure you share this information with all the drivers in your Family! 

Kind Regards,

Faulty Izuzu D Transmission

April 20th, 2011

I put this post on the blog just to confirm about the Post I have made about faulty parts.  This is proof how we as motor mechanics battle with suppliers who just don't care about there reputation , to supply  a Manual Transmission in such a way is in my opinion, discussing.
I went to this place and bought a new manual gearbox for an Izuzu LDV, paid for it and went back to the workshop. I have arranged with the supplier that I had to change the gearbox casing, because this gearbox is going to be fitted into an 250 Izuzu LDV instead of an Izuzu 280.

That was OK by the supplier, at the workshop, we removed the rear extended housing of the gearbox, lucky me (see photo) ones again a faulty part. If you look at the photo above you will see the 5th gear is stripped. This is  a new gearbox from the supplier, clearly you can see that the gears and the rest are old, just the casing was new.

So an old gear assembly was fitted into a new casing! Fortunately the suppliers were willing to refund me, after I thread him about the new consumer law.

The question is who would have paid me for my labour expenses if I had fitted the gearbox and found out after test driving the vehicle, the 5th gear is stripped?

Can You Learn Golf From A Book?

June 2nd, 2011




With golf slowly becoming one of the most popular sports around the world, it is only natural that the number of people looking to learn the sport increases as well.  With books, videos and even articles freely available online it is just a matter of time before many people try to turn to these methods alone to learn golf.  Yet this can be a very huge problem that is quite complicated if you do not already have a good set of foundation skills in place.  Learning to balance books and learning golf is important.

The number of people who turn to books each year to learn a new skill is quite large, and while there are plenty of books available that will allow you to improve your golf skills there are actually very few books that can give you the good, solid foundation skills that you need.  This is because there is no physical way possible that a book can teach you everything that you need to know about your stance, and even the proper way to swing.

While a book can be useful to help you diagnose any problems that you have with a swing, such as your ball hooking, or even not traveling far enough the book will not be able to physically look at your swing and determine what is wrong.  If you are working with an instructor, then using a book to help learn some of the other finer details of the game can be very helpful.  It is important to realize that you can learn some advanced skills from reading the books, but only after you have had the lessons to master the basics.

The number of books that is available to use is actually quite large and with a bit of patience you are certain that you can find the exact book that you want, without having to stress and worry about missing most of the key points to golf.  From books that focus mostly on giving tips, to those that are designed to help you troubleshoot problems that you have, to even those that help you learn all of the appropriate golf terminology there are plenty of options that you have and can explore.

The best time to use a book to learn golf is when you are just looking for tips that will allow you to improve your skills.  Working towards skill building once you have the foundation is quite easy to do and using books for this purpose is a wonderful idea.  However, you should always take a few lessons with a good golf instructor before you start trying to improve your skills further by using a book.  There are numerous books available, both in print and even in eBook format that will allow you to choose the best way that you can learn.  If you are most comfortable reading a print book there are plenty that you can choose from, just as there are plenty of great eBooks that give you the same options as well.

Always look carefully at the information that is included in the book before you purchase however, many books are not as well written and do not include any good information to help you really learn.  Many are nothing more than merely fluff, which result in being a waste of money and you feeling rather frustrated with the lack of results. Always skim over the book a bit before you purchase to ensure that you can see exactly what is included and what you can expect to really learn.  If you feel that the book does not offer enough good information feel free to pass and find a different book that will suit your needs better.  Finding the book that works best for your needs will likely be a personal decision, but do not be afraid to take some time and ensure you find the best book for your exact needs.
