Congrats.  Not being facetious but how much is the dog and how much is the trainer?  I have to think I lot is the handler/trainer

Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

MOST IMPORTANT/CANT BE MANUFACTURED = DOG  These are whats referred to as All-Age dogs - running with extreme range, extreme speed and extreme purpose (find the next bird as fast as possible, as far to the front as possible)  You also cannot manufacture STYLE on point, SPEED or RANGE, that comes from an inherent desire within the dog from breeding other dogs with those traits.  You never know which puppy will have it until they start to mature.  A biddable dog makes it easier, this one is very much so.  An example of extreme range - I've lost the dog on occasion ........ as in finding the dog 1.5 miles away from where I last saw the dog, 5-10 mins. ago!

Trainer = 2nd most important.  A trainer needs to know the dog, it's tendencies from it's lineage, and how to do everything right to not destroy any of the above three qualities in caps.  You can sure ruin the style of a dog around it's game by beating on them, loosing your patience/temper or trying to move too fast.  I've got probably the best trainer in the Brittany Breed - we've become close friends as well over the last 18 years, and a recent convert to Christ.

Handler = 3rd most important;  (Don't screw up the other 2)  Half the time its the trainer handling, I handle in the Amateur Stakes and sometimes in Open when I go somewhere different than the trainer. You need to be aware of the dogs tendencies and not leave them behind by failing to gather them up/turn them when the course changes directions.  You also need to be able to read the dog around game so that you know when to twist its ear when they're looking like theyre about to come unglued and start chasing birds instead of pointing.  All-Age dogs are almost always on the edge; edge of chasing, getting lost etc.  I'm getting better for this style of dog, all my previous experience has NOT been with All-Age dogs.

So, this past weekend I was in Ohio running Hank in an Hour Championship (Field Trial) near Dresden.  Happily, I handled the little rascal to his first Championship Win.  He bested a field of 21 with 3 of the 4 current National Championship winners!  I'll see if I can get a photo uploaded from a text a bit later. 

Finally caught up with all the new and developments from the weekend.....God is Good to us all and this place!

Sounds like good planning and execution Don.  I have a pile of receipts for my casita and haven't even started adding up the cost yet.

Your dogs?  If you were alone, I hope you had your side arm and didn't need to use it!  Three is a tough number to deal with even with a partner, three humans could at least each grab a pair of hind legs and fling a dog in a separate direction.  Hope everyone is alright.......surgical stapler and some antibiotics will patch the dogs up, provided it's just skin hanging and such.

I think I knew that, just jabbing a bit. The place sure is looking good, I think the pool is going to be a bear to keep clean but there are machines and/or people that can do a good job when you get tired of trying to keep up.

With a self-cleaner/robot and daily pH testing, keeping a pool clean is fairly simple......let it get outta whack and it requires a couple days of more steady attention to get back on course, but not horrible.....spend the money on the robot!

Watching this raised a thought in the back of my mind......how much of the existence of Asslam might be linked back to the Israelites failure to follow God's instructions to "kill every living thing and keep nothing for yourselves" back in the Old Testament as they were being lead to the Promised Land?  One spared descendant and a goat, and we probably ended up with entire lineage of the false prophet.

Way cool......so, an air needle scaler is basically, an air powered punch that pecks away at the fresh weld?  I remember my dad manually hammering cast iron as/after he was welding it and the whole pre-heat/post heating.  Also think he had some special rod for the stick welder just for cast.  How do you afix it to the table, clamps?

Awesome......I have total faith that he could tear some serious stuff up with that rig.......including the RIG!  :grin:

Looking great Tommy. Love hardwood treads.  No matter how good the carpet is it always looks bad on stairs.

My kids could tear up a crowbar in a sand pile so hopefully those oak treads will wear a little better than carpet on the stairs as well.  I do worry about socked feet running up and down the hardwood though... :facepalm:

 Don't worry that is self correcting behavior!  Place really looks awesome Tommy congratulations!

Consider the probability that BHO was a tribulation that God allowed, from the parasites birth.  Now, as this abominations works are systematically revealed and reversed, this Country and it?s citizens are being shown the evil and given a chance to rebuke it and return to a righteous existence.  Will we take advantage of God?s reprieve from Judgement?  Sodom & Gamorah were given the chance to repent just prior to His judgement.  Time will tell.......

Quite the machine there Don!  Now, when using it, maybe approach what you're cutting the same way you landed your Chinook when TOUCHing down in pine trees?  Slow and steady as if you expect those blades to need to carry your craft home, and not like a teenage boy and........well you know.

And that is the difference between liberals and conservatives.  With their hearts, liberals believe that we should all work in the interest of the greater good. Conservatives know the reality is that human nature is selfish and acts in its own best interest.  Therefore we should put guardrails around it. Thus, capitalism.

« on: March 05, 2018, 08:26:13 PM »
Based upon the size of that Corning Ware dish, I'm hoping you nixed the "individual" aspect of tonight's dinner Nate!  Mmmm!

Shedding some more "light" on the problem:

Today, I was "talked to" regarding one of our young snowflakes feeling "uncomfortable" due to the expression of my desire to be able to be armed in my classroom.....they phoned in said complaint to the anonymous tip line at the school!  I basically replied "SO WHAT" and my administrator said that enough said on the issue and they'd done their due diligence having "talked to me" and indicated that going forward, I should refrain from expressing my opinion.  I laughed and asked them how come I get talked to for expressing my opinion or a personal desire, and our F-ing Socialist Science Department gets unfettered access to preach their personal views and theocracy of the virtues of Socialism and Left Wing Radicalism?  They couldn't reply to that one very well......funny how many colleagues and students have stated that should something ever happen, they were heading towards my room!

I think Society has created a new, undefined life-form through political correctness and hyper sensitivity - Don previously mentioned the wide spread use in our youths of the "P-word" ..... wuss was the last softened version of it .... now what do we use?  Socialist?  Hillaryite?  Pablum puking, limp wristed girly men should even find our current lowest lifeforms of a generation's conduct offensive.  WE NEED AN OFFICIAL LABLE!   :facepalm:

Built a saddle stand for the back of my pick-up.  Don't have my own horse, but next best thing is climbing into my own saddle and knowing my feet will slide right into the stirrup without looking around for it.  Not owning my own means I usually get one that needs "training" so you always need to be paying attention.  Anyway, used up some cedar post parts left from my fence repairs, a large chunk of 2 x 12 from a deck build 10 years ago and a broken saddle rest from my Dog Trainer's trailer.  Now the saddle rides in the truck without bending the leather fenders etc. AND the Medical Kit rests perfectly underneath within easy reach.

Picture to be attached shortly:

VERY nice there Charles!  Is the PVC on Don?s landing pad for drainage or gas feed?  The other question is, if you?re burning wood, and a pyro like I am, won?t the concrete spall and crack from heating and cooling cycle?

Knob Creek is bottled at Jim Beam - you get to wash your bottle (with Bourbon) and put it on the line and then after the wax is applied, drop a coin etc. atop it while it cools.  You pick it up/pay at end of tour; it?s single barrel - 120 proof. Beam was second best tour of the 9 I completed in two days. Worth the time!

I?m a fan of whatever he does WITH the intentions of putting America First and improving our economy.  Tired of the world trying to feed us a crap sandwich and our treasonous politicians telling us how delicious it?s going to be while lining their pockets for feeding it to us!

Will you adjust the design and have brick cover the concrete foundation/basement down to final grade?  All that raw concrete would negatively impact your design and overall look of the place IMO.

Garth's music is OK.  He puts on a great show.  Much different criteria.

I was told I had to get tickets for this event from the HH6.  It was not optional

And that is why you are a Real Man!  Well done; I just hope that venue served quality Bourbon to reward you for your valiance.
I'm slow, but I think I put something together here
That summer that you did the KY bourbon tour and stopped up at my farm...
That wasn't some historical tour of the rich history of the Tuck
It was a medical and logistical resupply mission...!
I'm good with that
I enjoyed every single drop of that bottle you gave me
A shot, in a glass mixed with: a bottle of root beer, a bit of cream, and some ice...Nice!

Yup, about due for another one!  Going to be bringing the youngest bird finder to South Central Ohio this summer to have him "collected" for future breeding as he's turning into something special!  Also have him studded out to a Vet in Indiana just across the river from Louisville, so I'm sure that I'll need to stop by again and stock-up in the process, .308 will need to stretch it's legs as well!

School I work at is limiting the number of unlocked doors at start of the day (4) with all locked beginning of 1st period. Each of the doors are staffed and after school begins, only two will be accessible and buzz in only.

Additionally, all classroom doors locked at all times.  Teachers at the door in halls between classes. Supposed to have PD presentation next institute day - hope that they speak the plain harsh truth to all my liberal colleagues and pass out adult diapers and pacifiers to help them cope!

One positive thing I can say for the Japanese is that they have maintained a cultural awareness and reverence for CRAFTSMANSHIP, which most of our current generation in the US have no understanding nor grasp of!  Their Tea Ceremony is more about honor, respect and etiquette than the actual cup of tea.....at least THEY are unlikely to squeeze the last dollar out of the industry/company and wreck the product in the process.

That?s coming from someone who?s best friend?s father fought at Iwo Jima and heard some of the horror that he?d witnessed first hand.....
