  2. THE FINAL WORD ON NUTRITION After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health: 1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us. 2.Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us. 3.Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us. 4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us. 5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us. 6. The French eat foie-Gras, full fat cheese and drink red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

  3. The photo is from 2017, as the mop up from the Tubbs Fire was winding down. Time for my annual "Thank You" letter to the Australian Embassy. They were some of the first here and last to leave, and fought the fires like they were defending their own homes.

  5. @Jackalope THANK YOU for writing such a beautiful (and comprehensive ) announcement for @Branchwater Jack SASS #88854 and his Jedi of the Year Award! It was very moving - so moving, in fact, that he cried. Great BIG Jedi Hugs! Scarlett

  6. To say that I was "greatly surprised" would be an understatement. For those of you that know me, you can tell folks that I am not one usually lost for words and can often lead discussions without much prep time. Last night, however, I would not have been able to get words out, especially after I turned to find my wife also standing on stage. To be recognized by your peers for only doing what I thought I needed to do is a humbling experience. For my wife @Alchemist Belle 93666 and son Donald Duke to have designed this buckle for me to remember the accomplishment makes it just that much more special. Beyond being my loving and supportive wife @Alchemist Belle 93666 is always on my 'posse with' list, my collaborator on The Firing Line, and help whenever I need it. And finally, thank you all. For those whose hands I shook late last night or called and texted later, those that have supported shoots that I have worked, whether in Tennessee or Alabama, or those that continue to 'like, share, and subscribe' to The Firing Line, without your continued support and participation, none of this would be possible.

  7. A son found a very nice nursing home for his dad, where every need is carefully taken care of by the staff. He comes back after few days to check on him. “Dad, how do you like this place, isn’t it great?” “It’s terrible, son!” “What! Why? This is the best place in the state, How could you not like it?” “You see I like to watch TV in common space, and once in a while I tilt to the left, and one of the staff members comes up and puts me back to my seat. “After sometime I tilt to the right, and again the staff member comes and puts me be back to the seat.” “Dad, I don’t see what’s the problem, they make sure you don’t fall from your chair. They are very attentive!” “Sure son, but these f*****s won’t even let me fart!”

  11. Maybe there is hope. Eli Steele: 17-year-old rejects all things woke for the hero's path I intentionally asked this question to challenge Daniel’s character as we sat on folding chairs in the modest and comfortable church that his parents built in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn after immigrating from Haiti in the early 2000s. I wanted to know if there was substance to him or if he was a mere flash in the pan.

  16. There are folks on this thread that I have the deepest respect for. But most of them posting are just plain WRONG. A movie set is NOT (supposed to be) real life - it is make believe. Camera angles are not designed and set on the basis of the "Rules of safe gun handling" - they are set based on what the director thinks will look cool onscreen. An actor is specifically instructed NOT to handle the firearm in ANY way outside of the script direction. This is designed to avoid muddying the chain of events/ custody if an accident does occur. A live round should never be on the set of a film - but like the accident that claimed Brandon Lees life; there may be some horrible combination of circumstances that lead to this outcome. Regardless of my feelings for Alec Baldwin - no one on this thread (including myself) knows the exact details. And for the "It doesn't matter - he should have checked. Any outcome is his fault" proponents. Would you say the same if the hood comes off a NASCAR stock car and flies into the flagman? Should the driver have checked the bolts? How about your airline pilot - You ever see him walk out of the cockpit to personally check the overhead bins are closed and that the doors are secured? These are professional people, a driver, a pilot, an actor who use a TOOL and rely on others to ensure the safety of their performance. But we get all holier than thou because it is a firearm and WE (not them) have been drilled our lives with the rules; but I guarantee you have never checked the lug nuts on your rental car, never insisted on the installation of a Carbon Monoxide detector in a hotel room, never insisted on seeing the safety report on the elevator you're walking into or walked the piling of a highway overpass searching for cracks before driving across. We ASSUME that these things have been completed by the folks assigned these duties. An actor is no different - just a different tool. A person lost their life, another was injured. Tragedy occurred and you all prove to anyone watching that Pro Gunners are no better than the other side - because before the facts are known - we want to place blame and punish someone involved because their politics differ from ours. I thought we were supposed to be better than that.

  19. That looks almost as flat as west Texas. Parts of west Texas are so flat, that if you got up on top of your pickup, and looked at the horizon, you could see the back of your own head. Parts of west Texas are so flat that it would make a pool table look like you were in the middle of the Rockies. But it sure looks good for a place to shoot. The old saying: "be sure you know what is beyond your target", looks to be no problem here. Saying: "I love to shoot so much, that I could shoot 'till the world looks level"....well...that applies here. Looks like a ton of fun. Wish I was there, and traitor-joe had a feather up the kazoo. We'd both be tickled.

  20. A great big thank you to all those who worked hard making the match an enjoyable experience. A huge thank you to all of you who shot the match and to all who camped at the range. Seeing everyone enjoying themselves makes it all worth it.

  25. This happened at our house some years back. We had placed a sticky mouse trap behind the couch. In the middle of the night I hear noises like the house was collapsing. I find the cat and a partly eaten mouse out in the garage, dragged through the cat door, still both stuck n the trap. Seamus
