First month of 2016 is in the book, Rumors, Politicians, and NO shows...

First month of 2016 is in the books! Man was it me, or did January just blow right bye? Seems like I was just stressing over getting my Christmas shopping done and BAM.... Now it’s already February! .... If January is any indicator, it’s going to be a busy and fast pace year! I’m HOPING it keeps it up!

Hello everyone! Justin here @ Imperial... Welcome to February! The sweetheart month of the year, and the month of my birthday.. Does that mean I’m a sweetheart … Many probably just cursed LOL. Hope everyone is well!

How about them football games.... Man, Cardinals almost made it!!! Disappointing ending but let’s not forget, they had a pretty awesome season... I'll take 13 and 3 over a losing year every year! How about that game against the Packers!! That was probably one of the most intense, exciting games I've ever seen in my life... If you weren’t on your feet for that one, you need to get out more LOL! There’s always next year for the Cardinals!

California Cowboy - Rose Parade 2016 By Jim Nichols
California Cowboy - Rose Parade 2016
By Jim Nichols


ROSES ARE RED VIOLETS ARE BLUE AND SO WAS COWBOY JIM
“I’m blue from cold” I mumbled to my wife who was curled up like a spaggetio on the second seat of our Chevy Diesel Truck. No response, only heavy breathing. I craned my neck around and could see the top of her head peeking out from under several blankets like a mushroom in a window box. That sweet woman is doing this for me I thought. As in the past, she was my designated driver. Every rider has to have someone who will remove their rig from the drop off spot and pick them up and the other end. I checked the outside temperature on my truck’s thermometer. It read 39 degrees. It’s got to be colder than that, I thought. Admiral Byrd would consider this a heat wave. Though fully clothed in a t-shirt, shirt, wool vest and heavy coat I just couldn’t get warm.

During the night I got out of the truck twice to winkie tinkie and check on Twig, the horse my daughter loaned me. Out of our family string he is the calmest and I reasoned he would do better than the others with all the excitement and fan fare. Twig remained tied to the trailer, locked up (stance) asleep with a warm horse blanket. I could see his breath on every exhale like steam blowing out of his nostrils.

Truck Talk with Nate Brekken
Truck Talk with Nate Brekken


Why is there check out/diagnostic time?

We get this question a lot. Why am I paying for diagnostic time?
Even though problems with vehicles are repetitive, Google can’t fix your car no matter how hard we try.

Yes there are many people having similar concerns with their vehicles, but is yours the same?

Diagnosis is usually done by the most experienced technician in the shop. His/her memory, technical service bulletins, the latest diagnostic equipment, and the internet are all part of what comes to play in diagnosing your vehicle.
Retrieving a diagnostic code is not the entire diagnostic step. Pinpoint tests are followed after this, for example, one of our favorites - P0403, exhaust gas recirculation control circuit.

It needs a EGR valve right?.. Not necessarily. This could mean wiring concerns, (which can be lengthy in diagnosis) a bad EGR valve, failed PCM/computer. Usually, this is not a bad valve concern, wiring issues seem to be more prevalent.

Ask questions when you’re paying for diagnostic time - you are paying for it! Strictly Diesel takes pride in giving you the best diagnosis possible. Schedule your appointment today, or just stop by. We would love to help you get your truck fixed right the first time.

“Food for Thought”
by Rocco Wachman

As I write this I am listening to the News and the rhetoric on the upcoming Iowa Caucus. Enough said on that subject…….. El Nino has really changed our winter weather pattern and it has been a cold winter as I have viewed it. I do not do as well as I used to in the cold, it could be my age or the loss of seventy pounds in the last couple of years. I am always cold it seems and I am going to really get annoyed at the first person that I hear complain about how hot this coming summer will be. It is always hot here in summer.

Open Letter From NRHA President Rick Clark Dear NRHA Membership,
Open Letter From NRHA President Rick Clark
Dear NRHA Membership,

Can you imagine that this organization that I am so proud to be a part of is entering our 50th anniversary? It seems like yesterday our founders were setting the pattern at the first Futurity at the All American Quarter Horse Congress. We have made so many positive strides the last 50 years, and this past year has been absolutely outstanding.

A new international headquarters. A new membership card that you have or soon will be receiving. A pinnacle event that horse enthusiasts make special plans to come sit in the stands that once awarded $10,500 to now awarding more than $2 million in prizes and cash. A membership that once was less than 100 to now finishing 2015 with a 4.6% increase in membership, and the largest membership since 2008. NRHA has come a long way and you should be celebrated for all of these accomplishments and the future success of this outstanding organization.

Meet Sparky the Bison: Lightning-Strike Survivor
Meet Sparky the Bison: Lightning-Strike Survivor
U.S. Department of the Interior


Sparky the bison at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge by Karen Viste-Sparkman/USFWS.

Can you imagine being struck by lightning? Sparky, a bison at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge in Iowa knows exactly what it’s like! Sparky was struck in 2013, and is doing surprisingly well. We recently checked in with Wildlife Biologist Karen Viste-Sparkman to learn more about Sparky’s amazing story.

Sparky joined the herd at Neal Smith in 2006 after being transferred from the National Bison Range in Montana. As you may have guessed, Sparky earned his name after the lightning strike and is the only bison that has been struck at the refuge - although it does occasionally happen across the country.

Karen does regular checks on the bison to watch for signs of illness and check body condition. During a survey in late July 2013, she noticed a bull standing by himself. When she took a closer look through her binoculars, she noticed that Sparky looked bloody. This wasn't entirely surprising because bison bulls will often fight during the mating season and July tends to be a prime time for injuries. Upon closer inspection, it was clear that Sparky had been burned over a large area. His hump was missing hair and there was a large lump on his hind leg, which must have been the exit wound, meaning Sparky was lying down at the time of the strike.

Flick at Old Friends (Photo by Rick Capone)

GEORGETOWN, KY - JANUARY 8, 2016 - Stakes winner Flick has died. The 24-year-old gelding, who resided at Old Friends, the Thoroughbred Retirement Farm in Georgetown, KY, was euthanized Friday morning due to complications from colic.

Michael Blowen, founder and president of Old Friends, made the announcement this morning.

Bred in England by Side Hill Stud, Flick (Kris (GB) - Thakhayr (IRE), Sadler's Wells) had three starts in England before coming to the U.S. near the end of his 2-year-old season. He made his first start for new owner Judith Carmel at Hollywood Park, placing 5th.

Flick continued beating good horses at major West Coast tracks on both the dirt and the turf. His first stakes win, in fact, came on the grass at Turf Paradise in the one-mile Paradise Mile Handicap in 1997.

The following year he captured his greatest career victory, the Wicked North Handicap at Santa Anita. That same year he placed in the Grade 2 Mervyn LeRoy and the Grade 2 San Pasqual.

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Maricopa County District 4 Supervisor Clint Hickman was elected unanimously today as the new Chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for 2016. Chairman Hickman plans to continue focusing on economic development in the region, including making it easier for small businesses to work with the County.

“Our focus needs to be on local firms and local residents,” said Hickman. “We need to make it easier for local businesses to work in and with Maricopa County by better educating them about our own procurement processes. These are the men and women who earn their wages and invest their money in Maricopa County and create the vast majority of new jobs.

“And, over the next year, I want to wean ourselves off general fund dollars and work with the County’s Industrial Development Authority on exploring and partnering to spur job growth,” said Chairman Hickman.

Oklahoma City, Okla., January 8, 2016 – There are some who would say that Like A Diamond isn’t the real deal. He’s never earned a penny in the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) show pen or represented his country in International Reining competition, but a look at his pedigree belies those facts when it comes to his progeny and their potential to excel in the sport. By NRHA Million Dollar Sire Grays Starlight and out of Diamonds Jewel Wood, Like A Diamond first came to Reining prominence in 2001 as the sire of NRHA Open Futurity Champion RR Star with a young Andrea Fappani at the reins. RR Star made history as the first Paint Horse to win the NRHA Futurity and to make things more exciting he did it following a run-off. He then went on to top the 2003 NRHA Derby with Tim McQuay riding
