  1. Really, really?
  2. I hope people do realize that General Lee (a great military strategist) did NOT choose to fight for the seditionist confederation because of his support for slavery. Instead he chose to fight for the south because of his honorable allegiance to his home state of Virginia.
  3. Stupid to take these statues down. Looking back today whether those memorialized stood for good or bad they still are a part of our history and should be considered in that context.
  4. Give me a list of the tools you bought for 10-cents on the dollar and I'll see what I can use.
  5. Years and years ago I was wanting to start building a set of 3/4. Was at a Flea Market walking down the aisles and saw a young guy w/ a 3/4 drive Proto ratchet in his hand. Stopped him and asked where he got it. He said a couple rows over. I asked him what he gave for it and he said $15. My left hand reached out and grabbed the ratchet out of his and my right hand put a $20 in his other and I said, "You just made $5." He said, "Cool" and continued on his way.
  6. Digits? Numbers? First phone I remember us having was a crank phone on a 8-family party line w/ rings in place of numbers. We were two longs and a short. If you missed the nuance of the rings and picked up the call you might hear Freda DeBow asking Thelma Blust if she had any extra canning jars she could spare, or Les Truax asking Harry Veley if he was going go to the Wayland sale on Thursday and if he had any room for an old Holstein he'd been figuring on selling. These were the beautiful old Western Electric mouthpiece-handset models, many of them made from gorgeous quarter-sawed oak. I still have the case to ours but through time the internals have disappeared. I sure wish I had the entire original phone. And here I sit w/ my Smart Phone. Different times, different technologies, progress, time waits for no man. I see the advantages of what we have now but also see so much that has been lost.
  7. [Disclaimer - Not politically intended] Agree with your assessment of North Korea's ability to wage war. Within the first 24 - 72 hours the loss of life of the good guys (US forces, South Korea military & civilians, and possibly Japanese civilians) would be on par with, if not an order of magnitude greater, than the same total losses since WWII.
  8. Now here's a man thinking regionally/locally.
  9. Oil for dust control has been outlawed here for decades.
  10. I will not be baited here. However check your email.
  11. I'm here, and thus far smart enough to remain here.
  12. Springsteen's We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions is an amazingly good body of work. I highly recommend it.
  13. Average but clear vocals, and more importantly a great songwriter and lyricist. I was a little too tall, could've used a few pounds Tight pants points hardly reknown She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes And points all her own sitting way up high Way up firm and high Out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy Out in the back seat of my '60 Chevy Workin' on mysteries without any clues Workin' on our night moves Trying' to make some front page drive-in news Workin' on our night moves In the summertime In the sweet summertime
  14. Don't know about that but McCartney had (not now) an amazing range of octaves but more amazingly the ability to imitate other vocalists and their styles.
  15. + 15-points awarded for the use of "peeps". It's one of my go-to [but not used here out of respect] words to signify "people". Singular "peep", plural 'peeps".
