  1. Stretched-out case, forty-five caliber, forty-seven grains 3f...?
  2. She shops at Harbor Freight.... $14.99 for a variety set of 10mm sockets.
  3. There is a major problem with this scenario. To wit: most ag people are of a conservative bent. As such, they receive very little support and a great deal of grief from the state capital. Good timing, Joe - this very topic was the subject of discussion in this afternoon's writing class in Clovis, a suburb of Fresno and smack-dab in the middle of that circle. There are several "ag types" in the class; the capons and wethers in Sackamenna would likely be surprised to know that many (most!) farmers and ranchers are actually intelligent, educated, and articulate citizens. AND partriotic.
  4. Thirty years ago I "upgraded" from a corded "weed-eater" to a 2-stroke Echo straight shaft trimmer. Worked that thing hard for the next 25 years on two homesteads - one 2 1/2 acres, the other half that size, current lot is 1/3 acre. Finally retired it when the carb wore out. Since 2-stroke machines haven't been available here for years, I replaced it with a Husqvarna 4-stroke. Much heavier, reversed rotation (quite annoying), and significantly lower RPMs. Thinking it's time to buy a new carb for the old Echo.
  5. DAMN! I missed it! Without a doubt one of my all-time favorites. My uncle and aunt to me to the drive-in to see it when I was eight ~ scared the beejabbers outta me. Technicolor nightmares! Pretty low-budget, but still one of the more memorable Si-Fi films of the era. Not up to Forbidden Planet status, but still a good 'un. Woulda liked to have heard Sven's "song tribute."
  6. To put in perspective... 'bout a half-mile of buildings built on fill - the bottom layer of the fill is boat hulls.
  7. Don't need it. Zoom in and the trees are growing "up." And then there's the dude straddling the fuselage like Slim Pickens riding the bomb in "Dr Strangelove...." And by the way... it's a glider ~ LET L-13 BlanĂ­k Danged insomnia....
