Smiley says..If you stick a drill bit in an ONION ,It will drill like crazy//I laughed at that one.Untill the other day.I tried drilling a frame for mudflaps on a big truck.Finally I stuck the drill in an onion.SHORE ENOUGH! It was like a new one! It was dull before. Well Smiley also said the old country guy told him to stick bolts into onions before he puts them lids on those big things in the refinerys. Im not gona laugh again unti;ll I try it.Because ,Smiley says! I cant see my words here.I might rub an onion on my eyes.

Well,,Smiley is from the rock country of Texas.He collects all the info on home remedies.He got this in the refineries.Story went like this..They could not drill holes or get bolts off things ..The engineers had tried figureing out these things.An old man who looked like he knew little says ,Use a onion! So they all laughed.The old man got an onion from his lunch pail then showed them it works..Educated engineers learn new tricks often like this.I only know that the drill got better.But I dont knopw why.Ask a Harvard engineer.Ha ha! Smiley says stuff like that all the time.

Smiley hates John Deere mowers like the devil.He says he rebuilt his wifes completely to operate as they should.He put a car battery on the back and had the PVC bushings removed from the shafts then had a machinist build them of bronze.His wife kicked him out over the mower so he moved to the Houston area.He is a fountain of information.But ,(Uncertified in the field of technology.)
