Very nice Scat. I really enjoy these threads other that it tempts me to tread where I don't belong. Hope we'll see the finished work. Couldn't hurt to share some pics of that upcoming hunt too....

I used to work in a plant with 30' 3-legged wooden ladders finishing laminated beams. OSHA saved a few of us when they discovered them.

I quit using ladders about 10 years ago, and after falling off my back step two weeks ago and breaking my hip I can see handrails in my future.

Be careful where ever you are----flat smooth earth is still safe!...

Barry, there are two different groups of local Mennonites. One group uses only horses, the big Belgiums, to farm with, while the other group use tractors.............which must be steel wheel. Even their combines are on steel, as well. Their theory, supposedly, is that if a tractor is on steel wheels, they won't be tempted to use it for anything other than actual farming activities............which is BS, as they always figure out a way to get arounfd that.

We also have in my area, Amish, some of which are very modern, and use modern equipment (on rubber tires), then there are the Old Order Amsih, that use only horses. They are all sorts of those kinds of people.





LOL! smile

The Devil tempts them with rubber tires!

Funny how people justify stuff to ease their conscience.


I always thought it was funny in NW PA Amish country that they wouldn't have a car but would ride with an "Englishman" to work or to the Wal-mart 20 miles away.

Funny how people interpret the same words in a book to suit their needs?...

I would recommend sealing the plywood with epoxy. I used some West Marine epoxy on the wood in my jon boat. I thinned the first coat with acetone so it would penetrate better. There are a few boating websites that sell epoxy....

Where and when is the best time for NEOWISE here in the northeast? Maybe Penny and I can check it out.

Also, can we be sure the 130,000 actually died from Covid. Since all deaths were counted as covid deaths if the person had it in their system whether they died from a heart attack , suicide and even car wrecks. In NY if people died at home and were never tested before or after death it was counted as a Covid death. What sense does that make....

Aha,

I missed the flattened leaves in the OP.

The walking onions have round leaves.

Interesting this year, in that some of them not only have the bulblets, but another shoot is starting out past them and there is a typical allium (onion) type flower. I've been growing these for darn near 10 years and never seen that before.

During college, my son worked as a waiter in a nice restaurant here. He was quite good at it, unfortunately TOO good. They had a policy that if a customer wasn't happy, their meal was free. Of course they knew who the chronic bitchers were and when one of them came in, they'd put their best people on them to make them happy. However, the bitchers were also the worst tippers, usually nothing at all. My son was one of the waiters who got the bitchers and he hated it. He did twice the work but didn't get the money. He finally told the boss that he wasn't going to do any more of them unless he got a bitcher bonus to replace the tip. The boss agreed....

I did wrestling and judo so I appreciate grappling. I just hate Usman and wanted him to lose. But also found it boring. Just because I can agree it was smart strategy, doesn't make it an exciting fight for me.

Fair enough I don't like usman either but we better get used to him as the guy that could beati retired...

I don't agree one iota what you guys say about teachers. My family consists of 4 teachers now retired ,all women and there is no one in such a low paying job that works harder and more hours than they do. My wife and all teachers I have ever know spend a lot of their own money to get their job done and done right. I think this is true of all teachers in Montana. If there is a bad one, they lose their jobs immediately. Also, most the good free things for the underprivileged kids and families are funded and maintained by teachers year round .
Now I will admit I know nothing about inner city kids, but I can see where a teacher can get burned out.
Also, I have known a lot of teachers that just couldn't afford to teach and got higher paying jobs immediately.
My daughter teaches in probably Montana's largest school district and she wouldn't trade it for any other job. My sister in -law just retired from teaching and she still goes and helps out for no pay.

I guess I am stupid enough to believe I am in the majority....

We ate a lot of sour cream as kids. It used to come in the glasses with different colored dots (people actually collect them now). One of my grandmother’s dishes was sour cream diluted with white vinegar, sliced cucumbers and thinly sliced Vidalia onion garnished with ground black pepper and salt then chilled in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving. For those who don’t care for sour cream substitute plain water mixed with white vinegar with the same ingredients....

Standard procedure on any barrel is to cut at least an inch off the muzzle end of a new blank due to "belling" of the bore from lapping. Bartlein doesn't want much more than one inch taken off these, there's only two inches total there on carbons.

Since mine was going to be a 6x47 Lapua, he didn't see a problem taking 3/4" off the shank. Obviously a bigger (longer) chamber could be a no no.
