  3. According to Space.com, if you look near the full "Hunter's Moon", you can see Uranus. Does this require a mirror?

  5. My soul-mate...I was 20, she was 19, passed away before we could get married. At 26, after the military, and after graduation from college, I got married, and that was 45 years ago this past May. She would argue with a stop sign, but she doesn't mind me buying firearms, so even though she is not my soul-mate, she's a good Ole Texas Gal. She's half Cherokee, half Irish, all hard-headed. She told me once, as she was brandishing a baseball bat, that if I mess with her too much, I had better not ever go to sleep again. I think if islamic terrorists men had married a Texas woman, like the one I have, they would not be terrorists any longer, they would have no intact knees! Their "holy writings" indicate their men can beat their wives, if they displease them. With a Texas Gal, like I have, they would do that (maybe) once, and then the next day they would be permanently in a wheel chair. There can be a kinda "fear factor" in marriage. Be nice, or risk injury.

  8. I remember a movie at the end Lee Marvin is called a bastard at the end. I remember his reply. "Yes sir, I am by the product of my birth, but you sir, are a self made man" I think it was at the end of the Profesionals. I always thought that was a great comback line

  9. I think everybody has an EGO. Some more than others. Some are obvious. Some are proud EGO's and some are humble EGO's. But we ought not allow EGO and CONFIDENCE get confused with one another. When I can beat Slater on a stage or match, my EGO gets to brag, mostly to Slater cause nobody else really cares. And like Snakebite stated, once it gets beyond the front gate, it really ain't important. Confidence is different. When I teach a class on SG, I'm confident that some of the things I share will likely help many of the attendees. And why shouldn't it.......... I've practiced those things I teach and they have help me achieve many personal goals. In my opinion, its not a bragging EGO when I (or any instructor) can share techniques and experiences that is intended to help others. ..........Widder

  10. Engineers and Mistresses An architect, an artist and an engineer were discussing whether it was better to spend time with the wife or a mistress. The architect said he enjoyed time with his wife, building a solid foundation for an enduring relationship. The artist said he enjoyed time with his mistress, because of the passion and mystery he found there. The engineer said, "I like both." "Both?" Engineer: "Yeah. If you have a wife and a mistress, they will each assume you are spending time with the other woman, and you can go to the lab and get some work done."

  11. 39 years for Sharon and I as of September this year. Since I never expected to see my 25th birthday (long story) I consider that quite an accomplishment. Should probably get around to asking Sharon what she thinks someday . Regards Gateway Kid

  15. You know...the one who enjoys things you do. Shanley and I were just discussing being married, come April 24th, 22 years! We have been SASS for about 15 of those... Hmmmmm.... We also have a close mindset... We like each others company, but don't have to be 'side x side' 24/7. We have been spending vacation hours 'on the road' (as NM is under thumb...one of only 7 STILL mandating masks) in Texas, Co, Ok and Az... Most of the near future time will be in Co...untill time to winterize and close up. Come December...I will start posting on upcoming EOT happenings...as we will travel once a month for work parties... Here are a few of my favorite times....in our short time...

  16. I wanted to share this video with the group here. It’s a video I’ve wanted to make for some time – a video that attempts to capture the essence of the competition we all experience within a match. I titled this video Popcorn Kelly’s Shoot-Out at Camden Mills 2021. It tries to tell the stage-by-stage story of 3 shooters going head-to-head during one of our local matches. It even has a nail-biter for an ending. It's a long one at 35 minutes - much more like a television show than a typical shooting video. In any event - just something a little different.

  17. I'm with Rye. I loved it . All the big plays were included the bunt in heels, climbing the outfield fence, a home plate sliding tag, runner rounding the bases on a hit to the outfield. Even the catcher taking one bouncing back off the plate. Exciting, memorable, fun,,,,,,,,what advertising should be.

  19. That is welcome news. 6 years clean for me, prostate. Had a scare this week... optometrist thought he saw possible retina cancer... Ophthalmologist says choroidal nevus, in her opinion, benign and will stay that way. I'm scheduled for the next year for 90 day exams, ultrasounds and photos... just to make certain.

  20. Our first few (I consider 27 a few) years were the hardest. I told the doctor he had to keep me alive for our 50th, which is this December! YAY US!!

  21. So would I, however....even if Laundrie did get captured alive, convicted in court and received the death penalty....I'd probably be dead 20 years from now when they actually carried out the sentence. In the meantime he would be living on the taxpayer dime. If the remains are human and it's him...good riddance, goodbye, have a bad time in hell.

  22. Cheap shot. Akron is an office location. Do you think any events ever happened at the offices in Yorba Linda, or in RJ Poteet's basement, before that? End of Trail is being held in Phoenix Arizona, in a major population area. (The 5th largest city in the US + the population of the suburbs and surrounding areas). That's your location, location, location.

  25. As Phantom said, everyone has a ego. I don't have a problem with that, and for the most part I think it is a healthy thing that helps one stay engaged and continue to enjoy the game. Just whipping Old Johnson's butt is worth getting out of bed for, he beat me the last time! However, the people that I feel sorry for are the ones that actually believe being good at this game is important beyond the front gate. It's not. Snakebite

  26. Nah....and yup. There are those with ego. There are those who feel they know all, the best way, and ooze it. There are those who are born to annoy, those who complain... There are those. Every one is them....no matter the lable someone else gives them. If you notice, different areas have different 'views' on things... So when 150, 350, 550 or 850 people from all areas gather for a common event...there is bound to be differences brought about in the open. And yes, I can say I have an ego...I like myself Many like me...many can't stand me...and some just scratch their heads. It's okay... What a world we occupy, huh?

  30. GREAT NEWS!! Last night, after dancing around my trailer naked three times at midnight while chanting the Ohio State fight song and waving the State of Ohio flag, I am certain that I was able to reverse the hex and drive away the evil Bama spirits. Through incantations I summoned the spirit of our beloved Woody Hayes that assured me this would be effective even though performed the night AFTER the full moon.....time will tell.....we'll see. GO BUCS!

  31. Mathematician and an engineer walk into a bar. At the bar’s far end is the most gorgeous woman either had ever seen. She gives them both a come-hither look and says, “Either of you can have me right here on the bar top. But as you start moving this way, you can only cover half the distance between me and you with each step.” The mathematician immediately throws up his hands in frustration. “But I cant get to her! Theoretically I could take infinite steps and and sum them to cover the whole distance, but who can take an infinite number of steps?” In the meantime, the engineer is ordering a drink to take to the lady, loosening his tie, and obviously preparing for an amorous adventure. The mathematician looks at him and continues his whine about not being able take an infinite number or steps. The engineer shoots him a sideways glance and says, “All true, but I can still get close enough to make things work.”
