Firetruck Friday

Baltimore County Fire Department Fullerton Station, Truck 8 Aerial Ladder.  This picture was taken at the 2006 4th of July Parade in Kingsville, Maryland.  I couldn't get much (any?) information on the truck as they don't have a website with apparatus descriptions.

On a side note, this is also the parade where I first got to meet Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich and his lovely wife Kendel.

You know the idiots that think they must be in the fast lane at all times.  Heck, you may be one of those idiots!

Eldersburg Throwback Thursday

Remember S&N Katz Jewelers in the Carrolltown Mall?  Obviously this picture was taken after they had closed.  I got into the mall while it was being demolished, with permission, of course.

I sure am glad the mall is being replaced with a Super Wal-Mart.  Which font is the sarcasm font?

Eldersburg Radio Shack - Clarification

I previously mentioned that the Radio Shack is closing.  This caused quite a raucous on the Sykesville Online Community.

I like to paraphrase Obi Wan Kenobi.  On the Sykesville Online Community page on Facebook you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.  That site if full of haters and arrogant asses who are trolling the Internet pointing out how everyone else is an idiot.  And I used a Star Wars reference because I know the trolls will get it.

With regard to the post about Radio Shack, Sprint is buying some of the Radio Shack stores.  The Shacks that are not being bought will probably be closed.  The ones that are being bought will be converted to Sprint stores.  The Eldersburg store is being bought and converted to a Sprint Store.  It is expected that the workers in the current Radio Shacks that are being bought will be retained and converted to Sprint employees.

If this isn't clear enough for you trolls to understand, go back to your laptop and tab-browse between SOC and your Incognito tab set to and leave the this webpage to the real readers who want the inside scoops.

Closing in Eldersburg - Radio Shack

I heard from a good source that the Radio Shack in the Carroll Station will be closing.  I am not sure of the date, and neither was my source.

As you may know, the store is in financial disarray.  They expanded rapidly, then didn't generate enough money to sustain that growth or to justify keeping them all open.  To make matters worse, they found that they didn't even have enough money to break the leases on enough stores in order to downsize.

Along comes Sprint.  The Sprint Corporation is buying up a lot of the stores and the Eldersburg store is one of those locations.

I don't know what they plan to do with the store other than sell Sprint phone-related items.  Now I don't know where one will get higher quality electronics, speaker wires, connectors, etc...  Wal-Mart?  Ha!  I said high quality.  Higher quality products are becoming a thing of the past as the lemmings of our brain-washed society shop at stores like Wal-Mart and purchase mass-produced low-quality items that are made with near slave-like labor by communists in China.

Martin O'Malley: The Bland Guy

Check out these lines from an article in the Boston Herald:

"If you want to know what life without Hillary looks like, drive up to a tiny coffee shop in 
Concord, N.H., tonight and look for the bland guy speaking awkwardly to a handful of curious customers.

That would be Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland. Chances are you wouldn’t know him if you tripped over him, yet he could become the accidental front-runner if Hillary Clinton’s campaign continues to implode."


Firetruck Friday!

From the 2005 Forth of July Parade in Kingsville, Maryland.
