Keeping cool when your A/C blows hot

When my wife and I go out of town, I wake up early. I normally wake up around one in the afternoon, but for weekend out-of town trips, I get up around eleven. When I am forced by circumstance to wake up early, I am grumpy, clumsy and forgetful. I fumble around the house getting my toiletries into little bags and do my best not to wrinkle my clothes as I stuff them into an overnight bag.

Madman tells the tale of the mid-engine that could

Growing up I can remember a few tales that taught me to be a better person. One of my favorite stories involved a dog, his bone and still water. A little dog was walking along with his yummy bone in his jaws happy and content. When the dog happened upon a still body of water, he saw another dog in the reflection.

Madman’s column and the Cobra turn 50

While sitting before a blank Word document, I had a realization. I name my articles numerically, one, two and so on. This is where I paused and had my little realization. You see, this is my 50th article. I understand professional writers can produce 50 short works with little effort, but I am not a writer.

Campfire tale madman vs. the car thief

Ask the man on the street where he heard the best fish story and he is likely to say, “around a campfire.” Yes, the campfire setting has the distinct advantage of an environment conducive to tall tales.

Madman’s shocking opinions about electric vehicles

Night shifts in the Lodi News Sentinel lunch room are where great debates are won and lost. While the press crew enjoys pleasant conversation like weekend plans and the weather, we also argue about everything.

Madman’s guide to forced induction

There is no replacement for displacement. I have heard this well known saying my entire life. Everybody from drag race veterans to my eleventh grade auto shop instructor.

Shelby GT 500 back for 2012

As I was on my evening commute today I felt fiscally responsible. After all, my little green Civic gets about 37 mpg. With gas topping four bucks a gallon I feel like the smartest madman on the way to the asylum.

Madman discuses the dangers of driving while distracted

Today was going to be the day that I was going to drag myself out under the sun to begin getting my yards ready for spring. While winter has been stubbornly hanging around these past weeks, rain and subsequent sun has brought out the weeds.

Madman and the horror of the smog check

The chilly October air nipped at my ears as I opened the front door and headed to the mail box. It was getting close to Halloween and everyone had decorations up.

Madman take on the Shimabuku, Patrick scandal

Danica Patrick is a female in what many would consider a man’s sport. Patrick is a race car driver and a very successful one. Being a woman in a man’s world has not been all bad for Danica Patrick.
