Parler's website is hosted in Amazon Web Services. AWS. That send Parler a notice on Saturday that they had 24hours to move their platform to somewhere else. I believe at midnight last night the shut down their servers so no one can access.

Until Parler finds another hosting site and they reinstalled their software they will be down.

Unbelievable the censorship.

That makes total sense. Much better than the rabbit trail I was following.

The Barrel Maker Classic sounds like a great event. I did check the scoreboards and couldn't find any Bear reference but I'm sure you hold your own.

Thanks again for taking the time to spell all of this out!

Yep. After watching several of his video's he seems to imply that you could use the same barrel / ECTuner combo and then depending on which ammo you wanted to use you could look at your pre identified setting, switch to the matching setting to ammo and then achieve improved groups.

He always promotes Brux barrels so not sure how good they are that he is using.

Still curious how it actually mechanically works. Does it have an oblong hole and as you twist it moving from setting 1 to 2 it rotates that hole applying more pressure to one side rather than the other?

Not like I will ever use one. Just curious about the engineering.

I have also been looking at Crypto Currency for a while. I haven't put any money into it yet but it has matured a great deal over the past 5 years.

This guy in particular on the tube has quite a few videos on how to set it a wallet and actual use crypto currency.

You are correct that trucking is trying to go autonomous. I doubt we will see origin to destination fully automated in the next 10-15 years but they are moving the over the road option there the fastest. Similar to the old Yellow Freight days where you had over the road drivers take it to a terminal and the they would break bulk the freight and then deliver last mile or send it on to next terminal. I think you will see autonomous between terminals and then human drivers continue to do the last mile type of load completion. The trucks aren't the issue. It is mixing them with the 4 wheelers that is the biggest challenge. Oh, and they will be all electric too.  :popcorn:

Charles, these have got to come directly from a butcher, or are those obtainable at your grocery store? We bought beef from the rancher in AZ, and haven’t bought beef since we’ve been down here. I miss it.


I will have to double check but last I knew we have a few pure bread Angus on the hoof ready to go. Fed on a wagyu feed ration. The processor we use can ship anywhere in the country. Packaged or whole sides.
We fed a Holstein dairy steer on a wagyu ration. The marbling was incredible. I cant imagine what these Angus will look like on the inside.
Jon

Just curious. What does a Wagyu ration consist of?

There is a lot of science involved and truthfully I dont understand all of it so there is not real quick answer. But I can give you a comparison to what we use to feed "regular" beef cattle compared to wagyu.
Its been a while since we had beef cattle so I am trying to remember how we did it. We got them in at 700-900 lbs and fed them out to 1300-1400 lbs. We did use growth hormones. Like little pellets you put them under the skin in their ear. Put them in with a spring loaded gun with a large needle. They were fed lots of cracked corn, corn silage, haylage and a liquid protein supplement with a certain medication in it so they dont go into heat. Basically birth control for cattle. I cant remember what that was called. The goal was to fatten them up as quickly as possible while keeping the animal healthy. That would take from 4-6 months depending on the size of the animal when we started.  If the cattle we purchased came off a pasture we would have to put grass hay in the feed ration. Going straight to corn off grass will bloat them and ultimately they could die from it. If one did get sick with pneumonia or hoof rot or something there was no limit to what kids of medications we can use.  We had salmonella run through the herd once. That was nasty nasty stuff.  We later found out they had it when we bought them. Contracted it from a pasture fertilized with chicken manure.

Wagyu is the breed of cattle we feed now. We do not own them. The wagyu ration is similar to beef but adjusted to get the best meat the breed produces. We use way less cracked corn.  More silage and Ryelage lots of grass for fiber.  They are hormone free no growth hormones and no so called "birth control". They grow way slower It takes 2 years to fill out on a wagyu ration. We are limited to what we can medicate them with if they get sick.

This is out client https://n40beef.com/ This company is owned by a very hard working young man. He came up with this plan while in collage at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. Got a little help from from his dad and grandpa but not much. As a matter of fact his dad works for him now.
We were going to get out of the cattle business and I knew he was running out of room on his place, so I jokingly said we would lease him our feed lot. He thought for a minute and said how about you finish them out for me. Our partnership grew from there. We are in our 4th year of this and growing.
Thanks Jon. It’s a science.

Pre-Ranger got a concussion!

Took a hard shot in the game the other night and literally knocked him loopy. He has had headaches ever since and hard to focus in close. Hos doctor is also his LB coach. We made it official today. Looks like he has to go through at least a one week rehab program before playing again.

Tough call for all of us who are concerned/invested individuals.

If anything has come out of the NFL is the long term concussion awareness and the changes they have made in all levels of football to try and mitigate those issues.

In the past especially if the athlete was a star they would just put them back in with a concussion and play on. Now at least as frustrating as it is they have a chance to heal up before going back out. That is if you trust the science and on this particular I do due to autopsies done on many older NFL players that donated their brains for research,

I hope he heals up fast and proceeds to kick @$%.  :laugh:

Don,

Don't stop if you have something to say. We all seem to be like minded like JR mentioned but it highlights what is going on. The main thing right now is getting Trump reelected. Then they will continue to go after child trafficking, pedo's, the swamp, school choice and getting rid of the socialist teachings in K-12 like the 1619 BS, de fund colleges that suppress free speech and are "systemically racist", etc. etc... etc...

It will be a landslide like no other and even there ballot stuffing and harvesting will have no effect because Trump voters will vote in person and en mass like never seen before.

The Demoncrats will try to Kavenaugh Amy Cony Barrett and it will further repulse the moderates and independents. They will see again the disgusting ends that the likes of Horizontal Harris and others will go and reject them. Who wants her as our President after Slo Joe is in office for a couple of months and bows out due to health reasons. She is Obama's pick that failed miserably in the primaries. This is the only way Obama's cabal can get her in there.

And take majority of the House of Representatives.

Vote RED up and down.  :likebutton:

Very nice truck! I'm sure she will enjoy it. They ride really nice.

Oil change in the works? :)

I bought my wife a 2018 Armada about 6 months ago. She had a 2005 with over 200K on the ODO and didn't want anything different. The only issue she has had with it was a brake sensor that went out and it wouldn't start because it requires the brake to be pressed for the push button start. They had to tow it to the dealership and to swap out sensor. Luckily it only had 35000 on it so still under warranty. Glad you got the 100K!

We did find out when we drove from MN to Tampa, FL with a 4,400 pound trailer behind it we averaged 10 mpg. We had to stop every 150 miles or so to fill up with gas. That was annoying.

Her 2005 was a great vehicle. I hope the 2018 will be as well.

Congrats on your 2020!  :likebutton:
