  1. Oil for dust control has been outlawed here for decades.
  2. I will not be baited here. However check your email.
  3. I'm here, and thus far smart enough to remain here.
  4. Springsteen's We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions is an amazingly good body of work. I highly recommend it.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. + 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".
  8. My most sincere condolences to Jim and his family.
  9. Agree w/ Tobaccoman. Looks like large prongs to me.
  10. RPRU Deputies.
  11. When I finally made it to the RPF meeting place I was told that MTO and Hot Plug had left not 10 minutes before. Had I not been pulled over and tazed and ticketed I would have been able to actually meet them.
  12. When I got pulled over by the event police I was told the same thing. Sounded like insurance company BS to me then, still does.
  13. Lima learnt me that at RPRU's bicycles are transportation mode non-grata. Evidently the event organizers were more concerned about the dangers of people peddling a bike than countless others moving about in golf carts. IMHO I'd rather be hit by someone on a bicycle than driving a golf cart.
  14. MTO just think "not" anthracite.
  15. Looks to me like it could be a sandstone concretion. In general concretions possess a core of rock of one type surrounded by a rind of another type of rock. The border between the two is generally sharp and defined (like yours) rather than gradational. It's not uncommon for the core to be made up of siltstone or mudstone. Your description and the photos strongly suggest that the rind at least is a clastic arenite (sandstone family). The cement could be calcite. If you have any dilute HCL/muriatic acid give it a few drop and see if it fizzes. If you don't have one of these try some vinegar. I'm no expert on concretions but their mode of formation seems to be not well understood even by those who specialize in sedimentology. One thing most agree on is that they form after deposition but before the sediments have lithified into "rock". Yours shows some evidence for that. In the first picture look in the upper right where the outer rind appears to have made a "fishhook" that extends into the core. Structures like this are classic evidence for soft sediment deformation. In this area we commonly find concretions whose outer rind is a medium brown rind of mudstone enclosing a core of gray to greenish tan siltstone. Others are the same except that their cores contain black iron oxides. Some concretions even have fossils at the core of their core and most likely have some relation to the formation of the concretion itself.
