  1. Well, that depends upon individual preferences....... LL
  2. Remember that cube copy of Earth from the Superman comics, Bizarro World, where everyone is a twisted copy of the actual Superman characters? I feel like I'm there right now. Cops, charged to protect the public and enforce the law, doing neither. Police officers, again with highly visible authority, choosing to kneel at a time when we need their strength and undivided devotion to the rule of law. Lawyers, educated in elite schools and employed in white shoe firms, spouting Socialist or anarchist hatred for America (after taking an oath to abide by the Constitution) and tossing Molotov cocktails at a police van; others, who formerly held high positions in the Federal government, bailing the bombers out of jail (and the Court granting bail to an obvious high threat criminal). Thousands committing assaults, batteries, massive property damage, arson, burglary, attempted murders, and more assorted felonies than you can count by claiming they were driven to it by the death of a man they never met, never knew and never cared about in life, and totally diluting any claim of justified anger at racism by cops by descending into an orgy of lawlessness, even after the alleged wrongdoers have been arrested and charged with major crimes. Politicians, doing nothing meaningful, or trying to look sympathetic to certain voting blocks by expressing fake concern, anger or regret. Politicians, using these events to justify "the remaking of America". Politicians, using these events to justify another round of campaigning on a "Law and Order" platform. The media, again totally abrogating their responsibility to accurately report facts. Bizarro World - the place where everything and everyone is the opposite of what it and they should be. Let me out of here. LL
  3. Black-owned pot shop in Boston was targeted in organized heist; over $100K in product stolen; thieves appeared to have knowledge of layout of store and how to access locked storage room. Shop was located in area that did not experience looting or rioting; owners suspect that this was a planned theft, not a spontaneous act. https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/black-owned-pot-shops-us-robbed-boston-71033095 LL
  4. In the era of the horse-drawn pumper, Dalmations were used as a kind of siren to alert pedestrians to the approaching apparatus. The breed is well -adapted to extended running alongside of a fire wagon, having been bred by the nobility to run with coaches and on hunts. Reportedly, the dogs were also used to guard the firemen's belongings at the fire scenes. Most of these dogs are now gone from the fire service, except for those kept as mascots, or specially trained for search and rescue. LL
  5. I knew that I recognized that handsome fella in the straw hat......
  6. Forget those dinky plastic tumblers; if you have a lot of brass to clean, use the Miculek "Big Boy" tumbler.... LL
  7. BG: When the Antifa guys start showing up in Emergency Rooms with BB-sized ankle wounds, we'll know who's responsible! LL
  8. Chantry: Is that an outright ban on ownership, or a ban on sales, or something else? LL
  9. Sailboats carry a ton of SS parts and pieces, including deck hardware, standing rigging, turnbuckles, lifelines, stanchions, bolts, chain, anchors, winches, etc. If you sail in saltwater, it all gets exposed to saltwater, mist and salt air. We use specialized cleaners and waxes in an effort to slow the attack, but some discoloration and pitting is inevitable. We replace rigging (1x19 and 7x19 SS wire) every couple of years to minimize the risk of hidden failures. If you keep up with maintenance and replacements, you'll be OK; but none of this stuff is immune to corrosion at some level. LL
  10. Wouldn't know okra if I stepped in it. However, I grew up with Hires and Vernor's. After we moved to PA from Buffalo (where Vernor's was everywhere), couldn't find it anywhere. When relatives came to visit, the trunk of their car was usually loaded with Vernor's. I may be in New England, but I have no liking for Moxie; to me, it tastes like an herbal remedy. LL
  11. It's not just a matter of desire; hereabouts, we are limited in what we can buy. We can't mail order reloading components. When the Governor recently closed all gun stores, there were no sources for any ammo or makings in the state. We have NH nearby, but the ease with which the government was able to close down gun and ammo sales really started me thinking. The more independent we can become, and the less we have to rely on retailers, the more likely that we can survive similar events. I'm still mulling it over. LL
  12. " Life members don't pay anything!" Point me to one of those free life memberships, would ya? I appreciate the product, and continue to be willing to pay the price. LL
  13. Giving some thought to casting my own bullets. Any furnace recommendations or guidance? RCBS? Lee? Other? Particular models? Gracias. LL
  14. An excellent read!!!! An extraordinary, detailed look at wagon construction, hardware, mule and team handling and long-distance wagon travel. And an entertaining look at the relationships between two very different brothers and their father. History brought to life! I have loaned this book more than any other in my library. LL
  15. Some of the Amish will use boat motors, just as they use diesel tractors. Notice the lack of pneumatic tires on the boat trailer. LL
  16. Magnifico! Perhaps a good night's sleep will follow? Stay with it and ring the bell at the end! LL
  17. Will Geer would have been OK...if only they had tightened up his gun belt and swiveled the holster out of his crotch. LL
  18. Ooooo...Ooooooo.... With the benefit of this historical photograph, clearly demonstrating that Natives carried katanas, does this mean that we can add them to our SASS outfits? I can envision dozens of neat new rules, like (1.) At what angle must the scabbard hang from the belt ? (2.) Must we now incorporate the bushido code into our Rules? (3.) Can "Made in Japan" now appear on equipment and articles of clothing? (4.) Are tea and saki now correct SASS beverages? So many rules, so little time! Konnichi wa, Pardner! LL
  19. Hadn't seen Rio Lobo in some time, so I pulled it up on Amazon and started watching. Got to the scene where John Wayne is in the sheriff's office in Blackthorne, TX, when I noticed a Wanted poster on the wall behind Wayne. One of the posters was for ...Hondo Lane...a character Wayne played in the film Hondo. Neat coincidence, or an inside joke. LL
  20. In the words of the late, great Emily Latella....... "Never mind!"
  21. Were did we get involved with margarine? Cookie butter ain't margarine. LL
