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.

Forgot about that salt thing........stock up on blocks of salt?.....good for deer season too!  No experience with that other than keep a good stock of oranges around to get that taste outta your mouth upon exit?  :grin:

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.......

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.

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!

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.....

How?d you fare with all the rain Thursday-Sat?  Was trapped in place near Grovespring, MO Saturday until about noon before low water road crossing drained enough to safely drive through again and one crossing the other way washed out completely- Evil Kanevil would have to think twice about the attempt to cross it!  Another crossing blocked with debris!

Garth may put on a good concert, but he?s one of the more OVER rated country singers I?ve heard - Billy Ray Cyrus comes to mind as being as good; maybe a shade better.  Being a Democrat doesn?t help him any either!

We shouldn't think of the teachers ect as a SWAT team.  They need to be thought of as barricaded in their space prepared to defend those in their care, not roaming the halls looking for the bad guy with a gun.  That would have a huge potential to have a terrible outcome

Not with you on that one Matt - I don't want my students or myself to become fish in a barrel and should an attacker climb in the barrel, I want to be the Chief Piranah with the ability to separate his grey matter from his/her cranium......first line of defense is not SWAT.  Honestly, take away the gun free zone and have just one assailant catch a round to the chest at a school and the problem will disappear quickly.

Norm, not to worry, most teachers I work with wouldn't be in the same room with a gun since they're like Hillary when she looses - goes off without warning!  You would have to make all the guns pink and fuzzy and they can only shoot rainbows and lollipops.....You are correct Norm on some counts and wrong on some others.  Teachers who carry would need to be unknown to their fellow teachers and students and it would need to be ON THEIR PERSON at all times.  Not locked-up......under stress fine motor skills go to crap....what frickin' key is it?

I would want to be trained by FBI/SEALS/US MARSHALLS some group that actually know their stuff and I would want to have to pass such a course with accuracy and stability.  I would also what to pass some "paintball" scenarios (shoot/don't shoot) as well as pass evaluation from an AGENCY shrink who actually deals with members of aforementioned groups as to fitness to protect the students, sheep and assclowns I'd work amongst........might be a problem overcoming the urge to fragg some who didn't succumb to some Fraternity/Sorority prank during their undergraduate studies!  We currently have a handful of staff members whom I would proudly stand beside with confidence in a worst case scenario - Desert Storm Marine who was a click away from the infamous Airstrike on friendlies.  2 Deans of Students, one who was a competitive Army Machine Gun specialist.

There are no EASY answers, though there are some common sense actions that could be taken to lessen the current "Fish in the barrel" climate.

Ended up quoted in the Local Democratic News paper......http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-arming-teachers-20180222-story.html

Had to fight to get the reporter to return to the quote we'd agreed upon after her editor tried to milk toast it beyond the already softened version I'd OK'd.  I gave her credit for doing what she did, given the Alt Left BS they usually print.  I refrained from informing her that I was our previous Union President - had I know they were quoting the two Socialist Leaders of the National Unions, I'd have put that in there too!  When I get a chance, I'll post my actual typed replies to their submitted questions - I typed them and used work email so that there was hard evidence on what I actually said.

Pasted email exchange below:

Sounds good. Here you go:

How do you feel about the idea of teachers being armed to protect students from school violence?

This is simple, yet complicated question.  YES, I think that certain school employees/teachers should be armed ONLY IF they are qualified.  A concealed carry permit holder, is licensed by the State to do so in all areas of Illinois and multiple other states in what are referred to as "permitted" areas - Schools are one of several where it's not allowed.  That's one of the first requirements that I feel would be necessary for a School Employee to be eligible, followed by specific training in close quarter combat qualification through a state or Federal body such as the Military, FBI where the individual is drilled in "shoot - don't shoot" scenarios and passes practical competency drills.  The area where local Districts will balk at the idea is partially political and partially a liability issue - that's where this concept will die in Illinois.

Can you explain what brought you to this viewpoint?

Schools are well known as "Soft Targets" since almost universally, the possession of a gun on Public School property is illegal, except for Law Enforcement personnel.  How do you change that fact?  Change those rules to allow certain employees, unknown to the public to change the dynamic.  Criminals generally don't break into a when someone is home, due to the unknown element of the owner being armed - the same would then extend to schools.  I believe that there are some schools in Texas, with actual warning signs that employees are armed and will respond with deadly force if warranted.  Another factor that supports this viewpoint is that a few years ago, at one of our Institute Days, local law enforcement presenters came and spoke to the faculty regarding active shooter situations.  They basically stated that statistically, they would not be here in time to stop the shooter for a few reasons.  These are planned acts of opportunity that are fairly short in duration and usually those who perpetrate these crimes, take their own lives when confronted by armed resistance; they said that they would be here in time to clean-up and investigate the crime.  CLEARLY they were not implying their unwillingness to intervene or place their lives on the line to protect others, rather speaking to the reality of statistical data.  So that leaves individuals who are "on site" to do whatever they can to stop the threat and save the lives of their students.  We are fortunate to have an armed Police Liaison Officer on site, but they cannot be everywhere and their are days they are not on site due to other duties.

Do you ever use a gun, or do you have one?

I'll leave that unanswered

What do you think people who are strongly against the idea of teachers being armed are not seeing?

Several things that I've mentioned above.  There's also the myth that one can give up personal liberty/responsibility in the name of safety; in the words of Benjamin Franklin they deserve neither.  Reliance upon someone else to swoop in and protect you on a daily basis isn't practical; we ultimately are responsible to position ourselves and our families by taking actions needed to mitigate unnecessary risk - leave your doors unlocked and act surprised that you've been robbed and you're a fool.  Evil exists in the world; always has and always will.

This would be a good start. And then if you could just let me know what your title is and how old you are, that?d be great!

I'm a classroom teacher in the District for 32 years.

Thank you so much. I?ll type your responses into paragraphs and run them past you before I include in story.
