I had a neighbor who had bought a new pickup. I got up very early one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray-painted red all around the sides of This beige truck (for some unknown reason). I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news. He was very upset and was trying to figure out what to do probably nothing until Monday morning, since nothing was open. Another neighbor came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off. It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on the truck. I am impressed! WD-40
Water Displacement #40. The product began from a search for a rust Preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts. WD-40 was created in 1953 by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company. Its name comes from the project that was to find a "water displacement" compound. They were successful with the fortieth formulation, thus WD-40. The Corvair Company bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts.
Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you.

Later, Billy allegedly took a boat to where Ferrelle docks his touring vessel and continued to threaten him.

Taste of Country Reported This Article About Trace Adkins:
The rough-and-tumble country singer, who is releasing ‘Love Will…’ on May 14, broke his foot and shared a photo of the bruised and battered extremity. It looks like it hurts…
Adkins, a true roughneck, posted the image and captioned it: “This is gross. Broke my foot the other day. Still kinda hurts.”
Still…kinda…hurts? That looks seriously painful, but then again, Trace is a big, burly dude, so he can probably withstand more pain than most of the general population.He didn’t share details on how he mangled his foot. That’s his business.
But he was fine with letting his fans survey the damage. The singer also joked that he’ll never get a pedicure, either. Well, it sort of looks like he doesn’t engage in such behaviors, but pedis are best reserved for the ladies.
He also tweeted about being afflicted with a rash, as well, but he wasn’t able to get a good picture to share. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing
We hope Adkins heals up soon. There’s no doubt he’ll be in fine.

Connect with me on Facebook, Twitter and Google+BREEZY MORNING: Behind a cold front it'll be breezy this morning, north wind to around 20mph. The wind will gradually back off this afternoon and become more easterly, high temp in Lubbock near 71 beneath a mainly sunny sky. It'll be cooler to the northeast, here is the forecast map for today: We'll see a few more clouds tomorrow, high temp again in the lower 70s. The wind will begin from the NE light in the morning, though it should kick up more by the afternoon.ACTIVE PATTERN: We see upper-level disturbances sliding across our region every few days. The first one was what kicked up all the dust and wind last night. While we see these passing systems every few days there isn't a convincing chance for rain from any of them.There could be some drizzle or light rain Wednesday into Thursday, but again, the chance is low. It'll be breezy in the low 60s Wednesday, then rebounding right up to near 80 and windy on Thursday.NEXT WEEKEND: Models are showing a change is on the way. The degree of change is highly uncertain. The American GFS, European and Canadian models all show a large trough or cut-off low developing in the middle of the nation, diving south. Just where it moves will determine how much colder it gets and whether any rain will develop here.Because there is such a spread in guidance solutions there is little confidence in what the weekend will hold. For now we can say it'll turn cooler. Stay tuned for changes. Have a great day! Rudy will have a full update to your forecast later today.-Matt
