Don't Get Hosed - 11/01/13

  Everyone knows you're supposed to change the oil in your car every 3-thousand miles, rotate your tires every five thousand and check the air filters in your house monthly.  I'm writing today about something you're supposed to change every five years but I suspect few people do.

  In 2004, I was out of my home county with a group of friends from Leadership Middle Tennessee when I got a call from my wife.  She said one of the hoses on our washing machine had split and water was going everywhere.  She turned off the water quickly and the neighbors on either side of me had everything cleaned up before I could even get home.  Thank goodness my wife was there.  A friend of mine had the same thing happen while they were on vacation.  They returned home to find the carpets soaked, and all the furniture on thier ground floor ruined.

  The moral of the story is if you haven't changed the supply lines to your washing machine in more than five years, put it on your to do list.  I was in the laundry room at my house this week, staring those hoses in the face.  It's been more than five years and I need to get busy.  I'm on it.  I thought I'd mention it just in case.

POLICE-GOAT

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Some Detroit-area cops are dealing with some real animals. Officers in Shelby Township had to take control of a black goat when it was found wandering a city park this week. Last month, the department rounded up an aggressive stray pig that charged a woman doing yard work. The pig was briefly detained and a photo of its ride in the back of a police cruiser went viral. The department is now trying to get the goat off its hands. Officers have posted a picture on Facebook, asking, "Does anyone know who owns this goat?!"

STONER CAMP

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) -- Plans for a pot-friendly ranch resort in Colorado have been snuffed out. The 170-acre CannaCamp resort touted weed-friendly activities like hiking and fishing. But a deal with the landowner fell through, and the marijuana-tourism company promoting the resort says it won't open after all. The deal was kicked after the announcement made international headlines and became the butt of jokes on late-night TV.

FIREWORKS TRUCK EXPLODES

IVANPAH, Calif. (AP) -- Fourth of July has come early along a Southern California freeway. A van packed with fireworks exploded yesterday in what one witness calls a "psychedelic" display. But the sparkling sight was a headache for everyone caught in the backup that ensued. The burned out van briefly closed the main road between Los Angeles and Las Vegas at the start of the holiday weekend. The driver of the van fled and hasn't been found.

MAILING METH

HONOLULU (AP) -- Most people see a toaster oven and think breakfast. Some criminals, think crystal meth. Two men are pleading not guilty to helping mail six pounds of methamphetamine from California to Hawaii in a four slice toaster. And it's not the first time drug smugglers have gotten savvy with shipments to the island state. Meth has previously been shipped to Hawaii in mannequin heads and stuffed animals.
