  1. The movie, Flags of our Fathers, does a great job of telling what happened on Iwo Jima.
  2. Our granddaughters and our daughter. My wife, her mother and her mother's mother have all been raised on horses. 9815ED5F-F1C4-4E2A-B313-584153201FDA.heic
  3. Every time I read something about this raid I am honored and proud to ne an American. These men and many others did what needed to be done. They protected ours and many other nations liberties.
  4. Heat pumps do not work well in high heat and low temps.
  5. The "bigger" equipment actually saves money on diesel. It cuts the stalks, strips the corn, shells it and spits out cobs and silage. That and the space between rows is now about 1/2 of what it used to be. More bushels/acre on the same land. 80 acre farms are now nothing but hobby farms. They've been bought up and turned into 1,000 acre farms. No one raises beef, hogs or chickens. It's all produced on large feed lots.
  6. Another boondoggle like the bullet rain. Although it did put a bunch of money in politicians pockets. Not 1' of track has been laid.
  7. Starline makes 40-65. But if your not fussy about OLA they are .015 short of the OAL.
  8. Don't forget his entry into popular music with "Old River". Its on my playlist in my car.
  9. My go to word for something wrong or messed up is Wonky. Words from my teen years in Calif in the 60's. Bitchen, knarly boss, cool, goofy footer, out of sight, busted, fuzz,
  10. They're not lazy. They pay with a card, PayPal, Zello etc. Most don't even have a check book.
  11. Shoulder friendly, brass is everywhere, less powder burned, more load data, more rifles available. 45-70. Posters say SHiloh SHarps or C SHarps but unless things have changed they're 18 months back order */-
  12. No one has mentioned sights. 500 yards you will need a good vernier sight. Adjusts for wind and elevation. Front sight . a hooded sight that has inserts for various light conditions and a spirit level to keep the rifle square to the target. About $500. See Montana Vintage Arms for sights. You didn't say if you were wanting to just bang steel, plinking, or get your hits down to 1 or 2 MOA. 405 bullets loose accuracy after about 300 yards.
  13. Government funded programs that issue "gift" cards and EBT cards, welfare; limit what the funds can buy. Even some foods.
  14. We have 16' of spring on the ground and 39 degrees.
  15. The minimum wage in 1947 was $.40/hour. That equates to 31 hourds to buy those groceries. Seems we're doing better!
  16. 44-40,32-20, 45 cowboy, 50-45 never 45-70 and 40-65 yes
  17. What does it mean if someone is interned? Meaning of interned in English to put someone in prison for political or military reasons, especially during a war: Many foreigners were interned for the duration of the war. SMART Vocabulary: related words and phrases. Putting people in prison.
  18. 17 shots at the patrol vehicle and the detainee wasn't hit. He needs to go out and buy a lottery ticket!
  19. She's a Sargent and a woman. She's an automatic keeper.
  20. Everyone enjoys and embraces our freedoms until someone does something that they don't believe is right., but still part of freedom.
  21. The 501C(7) is a good way to go I think you still hae to file each year to show income vs. previous holdings. The only way I know of to protect the property owners and members is t form a non-profit corporation. We are incorporated, we file officers and update any other required info. Then insurance for sure. 3 layers of protection, sort of. You still can be sued.
  22. I was once interviewing to design a medical office building for a local reservation. When we were done presenting I asked one of the leaders there if the waring between tribes was a real thing. He said it was. And the hatred and bias still exists today.
