    Back 50 years ago I worked in a warehouse that sold bulk asbestos to be used for insulation on steam boilers. It came to the warehouse in large drums[maybe 100 lbs]. As a young order filler I would dig this out of the drum and put in a paper bag to be shipped .As of today I do not have any effects from handling the asbestos. But who knows maybe in the future I will have problems.

    OT: RE: Great depression/old people stories.

    I don't remember sacks of flour with patterns-------we got our dairy feed in sacks with patterns printed on them. Very common for 4-H projects for the girls to make dresses out of them

    Pickup Glider Kit

    Here in New York state you can't get away with Sh--t. It is plugged into a computer and all info goes to Albany. Even if all dash lights [check engine] are off if the OBC is showing codes present it does not pass. They run this test first------ And then the give it a safety inspection. And don't try to cheat by plugging in an other vehicle----Albany checks to make sure the VIN matches the plugged in OBC. Don't ask me how I know.

    "God Bless our Veteran's"

    "Beckey's"-------a mom and pop restaurant in a small town in the southern tier of New York------Good food-----Good service------Reasonable price-------open from 6 am to 2 pm seven day's a week Their building is the first in a long row of building built in the 1870's. Their out side wall has a western exposure and the mortar in the bricks began to deteriorate, they hired a contractor to side it with red metal roofing------painted the front of the building red--white--and blue-----hung up an American flag. Asked for permission to put up a sign---"God Bless our Veteran's"------They were turned down. Their patrons and a lot of the town folks got wind of this. At the next town board meeting the room was packed.-----They got permission to put up their sign----it is illuminated in the evening hours. They have my business even though it is a 50 mile round trip when I go there for breakfast. A Vietnam Vet
