Construction and Building / Re: "12 Square" a 12' X 12' shed project
« on: January 23, 2018, 08:28:22 AM »
Looks good Don. Good to get more storage for sure.

The Dad of a buddy of mine built his own place when he got back from WWII. He was a gunsmith and the first floor was concrete block foundation. He cut a couple of grooves at the top of some of the blocks and every night his change was sorted and put into them. My buddy had no idea until his Dad took him in there when he was getting ready to move- he had a small cold chisel and hammer, knocked out a couple of holes on the bottom blocks and the change just started flowing out- quarters in a couple, nickels in another, dimes, etc...all presorted. He said they were bagging it for a long time. Lots of places to hide stuff in concrete block if it's planned for.

CIEMR / Re: Government Shut Down
« on: January 20, 2018, 02:10:18 PM »
Agree with all of this TRN! I think social media helps get the true message on DACA and the shutdown past the MSM so Americans know the truth. I saw a CNN poll that blamed Dems (31%) for the shutdown more than Trump (21%) or Repubs (26%) - yes combined more blame Trump and R's but i thought that was a very good sign that it wasnt 2% blaming Dems.

I do think this huge fight on DACA is Dems trying to redirect attention over the Obama/Hillary corruption that is starting to come out as you referenced on "the memo". I too think people will end up going to jail over it. I just wish the MSM would wake up and realize this is such a problem for the country beyond ideological/party stuff.

Dang....mines closing too. It had the cheapest gas around. I used to shop there all the time when the kids were little (diapers, wipes, etc.). They also had good prices on full rib roasts etc I could cut up.  Don't go there much lately other than for gas, but I did get things occasionally.

Gun Control / Re: Yea, so let's get to know the gun control gurus
« on: January 10, 2018, 11:26:25 AM »
Its interesting as much as I HATE social media I do think this is one area where it has helped (in some ways).....I think that many people are now aware (even if they don't own guns) just how important having armed citizens in society is. After the church shooting in Texas there were tons of posts on Facebook Twitter etc reminding people that it was a good guy with a gun that stopped a bad guy with a gun. That message gets shared a lot and its hard for folks to deny it. I also think it has helped that people see the meme's shared that the 2nd Amendment is not about hunting, but is about GOVERNMENT control.

Yes the liberal weenies will all continue to scream about more gun control etc. but just as in a national election the key is to get the independents (Trump was never going to get the true Hillary Kool-Aid drinkers to vote for him), gun control nonsense is about teaching the "independents" about just how important gun rights are for ALL citizens.

The thing I bring up over and over whenever I have a conversation with people who "don't like guns" (and believe me they are bleeping everywhere here in MA) is how liberalized carry laws help EVERY citizen, not just those who carry because criminals will change their behavior. I ask them if its good that we have seat belt laws ( which I hate even though I wear one....just hate the idea that there is a law about them!), they of course say yes its good. I ask them if they will be protected in a car crash if they don't wear one. Of course the answer is no. But then I explain that with liberal carry laws criminals don't know who is carrying or not so they change their behavior- they rob homes when no one is home, they steal empty cars in a parking lot or whatever. But they don't engage in crimes where they may come in contact with the victim cause they might get shot. So liberalized carry laws help ALL citizens not just those who choose to avail themselves of it. And I end it with something like, "I get it, you hate guns, would never own one. That's fine, it is your right to choose that. But wouldn't you like to be protected from violence even without having to arm yourself?" For those who are truly on the fence or not just knee-jerk liberals who think guns fire themselves, they start to get it. Not saying I have made a difference here in MA (Lord knows that ain't happening!) But I feel its a start.

(If they are old enough I ask them if they remember when criminals were killing tourists in FL and the car rental places had to take the stickers off their cars....if they remember it I explain that this was criminals "changing their behavior" because FL had just passed a right to carry law and criminals realized if they robbed citizens they could get shot, so they robbed people who they KNEW wouldn't have guns (and probably had cash)- those who just flew there from somewhere else for Disney, the beaches or whatever).

Sorry.....another rant. I gotta stop at 2 cups of coffee in the AM! haha.  :shocked:

Gun Control / Re: Never ending assault upon our basic rights
« on: January 10, 2018, 11:12:38 AM »
I think the citizens who find themselves living in such places are going to have to get out and fight for their rights or they will surrender them. I think the fight will be unfair and you will suffer casualties as a legal system which is liberal and stacked against you perverts the law through progressive judges to package you good citizens in such a way as to resemble the boston marathon killers.

They get away with that because people aren't doing anything. How did a bunch of sheep get control of you sheep dogs anyway? Bite em! Put them in their place, use your proverbial teeth. Start with your own demands for justice.

Like I have said before, start with your own demands. I like the concept of lawmakers and judges having to publically share their medical records and lets also ask for political and professional affiliations. How about that city councilman who was a member of the communist party while in college who was diagnoised as borderline bi-polar?

Don I like all that you said. Ultimately we are witnessing here in this state exactly what the Founding Fathers intended with the states- that being individual "experiments" in laws where citizens would move in or out depending on the laws enacted in the state. The problem being we are seeing increased growth, but its the WRONG kind!

So every time the census comes out I look at all the states populations versus the last census and compare which ones have had gains over the typical "net gain" (I would have to go dig up the spreadsheet but iirc its 1.5% - meaning if the population had no new immigrants or emmigrants it would grow at 1.5%- Population X plus new births less deaths). Those states who's population growth exceeded 1.5% meant they had more people moving in and those with growth less than 1.5% had people moving out. TX, FL and other low tax states have had net increases far exceeding the "normal" growth rate reflecting exactly what you would think- people vote with their dollars and move from high tax states to low tax states.

But in MA we are seeing a problematic trend- because we have liberal bleeping everything which includes welfare, food stamps, etc. we are seeing people move in for the benefits. So we have a shrinking population of workers supporting a rising population of leeches and ticks. They of course elect exactly who they want to (which are more of the liberal jerks who want their votes so continue to make them dependent on the welfare systems they promote). Its a vicious cycle and will implode eventually.

When we last went through this it was right after Dukakis ran for President with the (fake) Massachusetts Miracle. Everyone here knew the state was failing but he buffaloed enough on the left to get on the ticket. Fortunately (for the country) he lost the election. But then the state was in deep doo doo financially. Bill Weld got elected Governor on a platform of reforming welfare by requiring people "work" (I put that in quotes because there were all sorts of loopholes but it was a good start) if they received welfare benefits. Before the law ever went into effect 1/2 of the welfare recipients got off welfare and got jobs. No joke. HALF!!! So it was good, obviously. Then the state went through the next incarnation of liberal BS and elected Obama's buddy Deval Patrick (I am going through all this because you will likely see his name in 2020 as liberals want him to run) for Governor. The very first law he rescinded was the "Workfare" law Weld had pushed through. So now NH and ME are starting pilot programs with "workfare" and those leeches are all moving here for benefits because no one checks anything. Its disgusting. The MA legislature is 85% Democrat on the Senate side and 79% Democrat on the House side. Republicans can not pass ANY legislation on their own. Nor can they stop legislation no matter how insane.

Last year (maybe 2 years ago? I forget now), Republicans proposed a bill that would strip EBT "rights" from stores found to be engaged in fraudulent activities (we have some "convenience" stores that will have $500 a week in cash sales but $100,000 a week in "EBT" (food stamp) sales- these are the ones giving EBT holders $0.50 on the $1.00 for their EBT cards so the holder can go buy booze and drugs). The Democrats voted 100% on party lines to shoot down the legislation. Right now in the state if you "lose" your EBT card (which instead of being like a credit card tied to your "account", is more like a gift card with cash tied to the card) you just go get another one, BUT THEY DONT CANCEL THE ONE YOU LOST!!!! So drug dealers routinely get arrested with 20-30 or more EBT cards on them as their customers trade the EBT cards for drugs. But the  Democrats here won't stop that BS either.     

Sorry I got off on a bit of a tirade here, but most on this site won't believe that this kind of nonsense occurs (well exceptin' the folks in CA as they see it too). I mention it because we WILL see these people pushing at the federal level for office in 2020 (Elizabeth Warren and the previously mentioned Deval Patrick) so its important to know who we are dealing with.

For me? I can not WAIT to get the heck out of here. My youngest is a junior in high school and as soon as she graduates I will be gone like the wind. I may keep a house here as long as my Mom and FIL are alive but I will "live", for tax purposes (and gun purposes), elsewhere.

Sorry....rant off.  :facepalm:

Gun Control / Re: Never ending assault upon our basic rights
« on: January 09, 2018, 02:47:36 PM »
Glad you started this forum section Don. Of course the pols in my state have all drunk the Kool-Aid and consider me a terrorist for owning guns. Fortunately we have an active anti-gun group that can and does push back on occasion. Its just that its so little and so late. The pols here are all of the mindset that black guns are bad. They made bumpstocks illegal about a week after the LV shooting.

In an attempt to get fewer people to carry they came out with two classes of pistol permits....one a "small capacity" permit (good for 6 rounds or less), and a "high capacity" permit. Oh, but they didn't tell the public the fine print....the Small Capacity permit only allows you to have a pistol outside your house in a locked container going to a gun club or back. In order to carry concealed you need the High Capacity permit, which of course a lot of guys who usually carry revolvers said "nah, I don't need that one." Not knowing that they were effectively cutting off their own noses.

When John Lott's book More Guns Less Crime came out our local Attorney General was on a radio talk show. I called and asked him if he had read it. He said no. I said "You're the top law enforcement officer in the state. Gun violence is a problem, shouldn't you have the most up to date information on gun crimes and laws in the country so you can guide policy in a way that is effective? This is the only study that looked at every county in the country. I think you owe it to the taxpayers who pay your salary to read it and be informed of the facts." They hung up on me. SMH.  Have I said I hate this state?

Share Your Recipe / Re: Home made chicken soup

Looks good! We have a ham bone that will be pea soup in a day or so. The wife is always making chicken soup from cooked chickens. Its so good and as TRN says so much better than anything canned. Plus you can add whatever you have on hand so not wasting what otherwise might get spoiled or tossed out.

My wife is a label reader and paranoid about the additives in stuff so we've just started buying dried beans (which is great in my mind cause they are so much cheaper). She makes a Tuscan bean soup with white beans....mmm....like a pea soup in that some of them break up completely and thicken the broth. That and some crusty bread and I am gtg!

I never had a problem with cold bit the lack of daylight shuts down laying. Having a light on a timer will keep them going through th winter. It stimulates their pituitary gland which regulates egg production from what I read.

Afaik as long as they only have about 4-6 square feet or so per bird in the coop you don't need a heat lamp. We had plenty of below zero temps. But if there's only a few chickens where they have too much room then maybe some extra heat would be warranted i dont know.

Started today where I ended last night....bloeing snow. Didn't get too much, about 10" or so but cold and about a 30 mph wind. Temp dropped all day today and it's now 3 with that wind still pushing. Supposed to be about -10 below tomorrow night and still with wind. Should be interesting. We're having a family party so I just put a brisket on the grille (yeah....its 11:00 pm), the cold has me a bit nervous. Never cooked BBQ when the snow is piled up and the wind howling. Should be interesting. I'm gonna cheat though in about 3 hours bring it in, wrap it in foil and finish it in the oven at 225. I can't stay up all night sipping whiskey and listening to the birds tonight. Ha!

Guineas are great watch birds but noisy as heck. Yikes.

I was doing the same thing and couldnt break a lugnut. I used a breaker bar expecting it was going to kill me after i couldn't find a cheater bar to use. I was astonished (and PO'd) that it was so easy to break free. I'm glad to have one but I bought it to have in the truck for flats figuring it's a lot faster than the old 4 way. But I may be wrong. Sheesh.

Good whisky is good. Bad whisky is.. .just that. I prefer bourbons but appreciate some of the single malts. If you get a chance to go to a Johnny Walker tasting night go for it. It's fun.

I went in Boston and first they give you a nice (decent, not amazing) steak dinner. Then they put a placemat in front of you with a map of Scotland with small circles on the outside and arrows to the locations of all the distilleries that Johnny Walker uses. On each of these circles went a small shot of the single malt made by that distiller. At the top were shots of Johnny Walker black and one of blue.

They had a master distiller of theirs (iirc he was 1 of only 3 or 4 people that they have in that role) in a kilt who gave a slide show. They had a small oven burning peat in the corner the whole night for ambience. The slide show had pictures of all the single malt distillers locations, building etc. He would provide descriptions of all the single malts- the flavor, aroma, peat intensity etc. And you would taste them. Then having gone through all of them you tried the blended versions from Johnny Walker. It was amazing how each of the single malts vary so much and vary from year to year but JW takes all those and blends them to have a single flavor. And the master distillers do it only by smell.

Makes for a fun night.

« on: December 14, 2017, 12:15:23 AM »
Of the things I have witnessed, there was usually some narcotic involved. Hash, Heroin, THC, and even some guys speedin' along. You shoot someone like that and they will just keep motoring. THe narcotic masks the pain, the drug takes the shock of being hit off one's mind, and in many cases dead people just kept staying in the fight.

In my younger years I bounced and bartended a lot of places. Used to do armed security in a few Mexican bars in CO. The single most difficult person I ever removed from a bar was a scrawny 5' 5" or so 140 lb 14 yo kid on PCP (They had a restaurant side so any age could be in there the young ones had to stay on the restaurant side unless they were dancibg). Little bugger was darn near super human. He spreadeagled himself in the doorway and I literally couldn't get him out. I backed up about 6 feet or so and ran at him, my shoulder into the small of his back got him through, and into the wall about 4 feet past the doorway. Never saw anything like it. Crazy drug.

There's a cop training video of a guy coming out of a house with a gun on PCP.  I forget how many rounds the cops put in him but he just keeps coming. I want to say it's 25-30 rounds or so. Creepy stuff.

Love all the battery powered stuff out there now. I did have an interesting one yesterday. Changing a tire and the DeWalt impact wouldn't break one of the lugs. Grabbed the breaker bar and couldn't find a cheater pipe so I was worried how hard I was going to have to yank on it but it broke free surprisingly easy. I was just surprised the impact couldn't break it free. Still a ton faster than doing them by hand but I was surprised it didn't have as much power as I had hoped for breaking something free.

I hate that this happened. Its so disgusting. It's not clear to me how much of this was due to the prosecution trying to get him convicted of 1st degree murder vs manslaughter or something lesser. What I have heard is that he fired the gun but that he wasn't firing at Kate Steinle and the bullet ricocheted off the pier and killed her. It makes it no less horrible for her and her family. But 1st degree murder is generally reserved for premeditated crimes. But i will admit i havent paid too much attention to the trial itself.

It certainly is Exhibit A of the failures of our immigration laws, Obama's approach and Sanctuary Cities. I hope the Fed's pull every $ of funding from them.

That's such a helpless feeling. With our three after my wife finished breast feeding we ended going through each of the progressively more bland (I guess bland?) Versions. The oldest had not problem with any formula, the second had more gas and we had to get a more gas "resistent" type and the third we had to go with nutramagen. Unfortunately that stiff's expensive, especially as our youngest was the biggeata (as if often the case) and ate more than her siblings had.

I would try different formulas until you find one that can be tolerated. And the other ideas (slight slant to the crib mattress, etc) others have mentioned can help too for sure.

Good luck! Know that this will pass. Such a helpless feeling of a baby screaming you can't console.

Helping my FIL get some stuff moved in his house in anticipation of selling it.

Got a great text from my sister....shes at the Army football game w/the family. My nephew said to her "Mom, no one's taking a knee here!" Ha! Loved it.

My guess is Astro stuff was a very slow mover, I mean I didn?t even know they were in Houston & Ken thought they were from Austin.  :tongue:

So my guess it?s more likely they didn?t have any stock and are building to order.

Um...you remember that first fake green grass in the NFL right?  :smiley: It wasn't placed at the Austin Astrodome....ha.

So I dont get accused of total DOT here....

Here's an article listing companies conservatives shouldnt do business with (and the reasons behind their inclusion on the list). Companies include J&J, Google, Disney, Gap, HD (I would be curious to see how they would rate Lowe's too as the co-founders of HD are pro-Trump) and Kellogg's.
