    Great lake boats, a good video

    Reminds me of a story told to me by a pilot, who also happened to be a lawyer. Seems he did his pilot training on old WWII B-25's (wonder how long ago that was?); and he was getting in his required flying time, over the ocean on the West Coast. He spotted a fishing boat, and so he "buzzed" it...

    One reason I chose NOT to make playing music my life. I saw too many guys who were either alcoholics, drug addicts and were either divorced or had no family life. I wanted a family, and figured the two were not consistent.

    A kid gets terminated at work...

    My state is an at-will state; in other words you can be fired for no particular reason, with a few exception like race, religion, etc. There are two classes of public employees; merit and exempt. Exempt are employed at-will, and merit employees may only be fired for cause. This is designed to...

    Little old lady walks into the police station, and says "I would like to report a rape". The officer says "Please sit at the table there and tell me about it". First, when did this happen?" Little lady says: "Well, it was June of 1969". Officer says: "I'm sorry Ma'am, but that's too long...

    Johnny Cash has always been one of my favorites; in fact Karaoke nights I get lots of "you do good on the Johnny Cash songs". I saw Johnny in concert two separate times; ca. 1959-1960. He had a powerful stage presence, but both times he appeared to be a bit unsteady, and had difficulty...

    Stupid Things I Have Done

    I don't know about Antimony mining, but the company I used to work for had Uranium mines, among other things. I smoked at the time, and I had to give up smoking the night before or they wouldn't let me go down into the mine. Seems that the combination of Radon gas in the mine and cigarette...

    It's possible he exaggerated. He bought that car in an estate sale; low mileage, and lost his rear when he sold it. Seems no one wanted an '84 Vette.

    Well, when you decide to plan(t) trees. . .

    Yeah, if I had known 40 years ago what I do today, I would be at least $5000 richer by saving all of the tree work...and it's not over yet.

    Friend of mine had a Corvette, a 1984 I believe; he said he had to remove a fender to put in a new battery...took him half a day.

    Why I quit hating soccer.....besides the soccer moms!

    I agree. My Grandaughter played soccer and although she was my princess, I have seen her flatten a couple girls who crossed her...but growing up with two older brothers, she can handle herself. I loved to see the grand kids play soccer, and watching the little boys play hockey was a real hoot!

    I have a Rickenbacker electric, that I bought new. It is all original, with the original strap and case. The only thing I have been able to determine, is based on the serial number, is its year of manufacture. How can I determine the model number and estimated value? Anyone know? Thanks...

    UFO's... What do you think?

    Good observation...plus we have a body that possesses the dexterity to fashion tools and change our environment accordingly. I understand that a porpoise is extremely intelligent, but it cannot fashion a Swiss watch or build a medieval castle.

    That's a pretty big boar...but you did say "sows" as opposed to gilts. My Grand Dad claimed that he had a Poland China boar that weighed in excess of 1000 pounds; I can't imagine he was much good at that weight. I recall seeing a Duroc at the stockyards that I estimated would weigh 750; you...

    Good movies,,, well there are a few.......

    Saw an old Clint Eastwood movie on TV the other night; entitled "Blood Work'. It was actually a pretty good movie, although I had it figured out before the plot was revealed. Later watched "Tightrope", which was OK, but nothing special.

    Stupid Things I Have Done

    When I was about 10 years old, my Dad had a 1941 Mercury. We lived on a steep hill, and the car was parked near the house, on the hill. Now I thought I knew a lot about cars, and when I saw it was in Reverse, I reasoned that in reverse, it would roll down the hill...so I put it in Neutral...

    OMG! I love it! I hope that's a reproduction and not an original P-40 fuselage; although that's a better use for it than rotting in a field somewhere or being melted down into aluminum ingots.

    Weber Hickory smoke flavored salt

    Of course. That's why I make my own rubb. It's not too hot, not too salty and not too sweet...everybody seems to like it, and yeah, I use Mesquite, Black Jack Oak and Pecan wood for smoke.

    Weber Hickory smoke flavored salt

    We discovered Woody's Cook-in Sauce years ago. It is generally used like BBQ sauce for cooking on the meat, but it is NOT SWEET, which I like, and is not bad about burning...and it has a great flavor. Sharn Jean puts it into her BBQ beans, and it's perfect...

    Spanish people, from Spain, I believe are for the most part, Caucasian, i.e. "white". The mixed race individuals, we used to call "Mexican", are what they call themselves, "Mestizos". I know when I lived in Albuquerque, I was around, and worked with a lot of people of Spanish descent...and...

    Is this house falling into the ocean?

    I'm not saying you're wrong, but maybe you're thinking of another agency. To my knowledge, EPA, especially in the early days, concentrated on air, water emission and disposal of hazardous waste. It had a huge impact on the way automobiles were constructed, and how new sources of air and water...

    I was wondering if you have the same species we have here; it looks like the markings on the tail are a bit different, but that's all I could see right off.
