  1. My mom used to insist that I eat breakfast before school. Two slices of lightly buttered toast and a glass of milk. Which I threw up about 15 minutes later. Finally, in about 1965 Carnation came out with Instant Breakfast. I had a glass of that every morning from 3rd grade until I was out of high school (DON'T SAY IT!!!!). Now I have some coffee about 0430, and bring coffee with me to work. Sometimes I'll get hungry at work, maybe twice a month, and go buy a burger. Saturdays I'll fix something around 0900. Sundays I eat after church, which will be around noon or a little after.
  2. That comes from the Church. You fasted (typically) from sundown (later midnight) until you took the Eucharist. In the early Church, and still in the Slavic tradition, you then take a little unconsecrated bread and wine (Запивка - zapivka, to wash down) to cleanse your mouth of any remaining particles of the Eucharist and also break your fast. In the VERY early church it was more than that, pretty much a full meal.
  3. Could be worthless, could be worth thousands. I'm lucky, my wife doesn't like diamonds, says that they are overrated. She much prefers strong colors in stones.
  4. The big question - Tortillas, corn or wheat flour?

  6. So they don't do things like call out the counter-bore diameter for the clearance of a bolt head as +/- .0005".
  7. That will get you charged with "Assault With a Deadly Weapon" niw.

  9. O Lord Jesus Christ our God, Who did patiently endure the scourging and wounding of Your most holy Body, that You might save the souls and bodies of Your people, look graciously, we beseech You, upon the suffering body of this Your servant and give her strength to endure patiently whatsoever You shall see fit to lay upon her. Bless the means employed for the working out of her cure, granting that she may so endure her sufferings in the flesh that the wounding of her body may be to avail for the correcting and salvation of her soul, for Yours it is to show mercy and to save, O Christ our God; a
  10. The most common is a ratio of 6:1:1, water:lemon juice:sugar. I'm a fan of 6: 1.5:1. Naturally, start off scant on the sugar and increase if needed. I've never been able to make decent lemonade using the bottled stuff. Always fresh. To give it some zip run an inch or two of fresh ginger through your microplane and then squeeze the juice out of the resulting pulp (or just put it all into the pitcher). Or muddle some fresh mint.
  11. Interesting. When I clicked on that and hit "Open in new tab" I got "l3harris-w2.prod.fire.glass... is taking too long to load." What makes it really interesting to me is that L3 Harris is a company that sends a lot of work to the shop I work at.
  12. I think that at Oracle Stadium, home of the San Francisco Giants, a regular beer is 13 bucks. Craft beers run about 23.
  13. It was a pretty good game. People in the stadium getting silly at the chance to finally get out after almost a year and a half.
  14. https://www.nbcsports.com/chicago/cubs/cubs-fans-epic-beer-cup-snake-cost-almost-30000 The snake reached from the top of the upper section of center field beneath the scoreboard to the top of the lower centerfield section. And how much beer had to be consumed to make that? And how much money was spent on beer? Well some people did the math and the answer is a lot. An insanely large sum of money. Epic beer snake at the Cubs game yesterday. Quick math (h/t @jkmumford ) A ~100 ft snake at 2 cups an inch = 2,400 beers. 2,400 beers x $12 each ——— $28
  15. White, or undyed, fabric is less expensive to produce than dyed goods. You can also bleach it in the Sun.
  16. Another Gallery Not all "cowboy" but all from the frontier era and indicative of the dress of the period.
  17. Possibly not a waistcoat, but yes to all the rest.
  18. It should. Usually the manuals don't specify the manufacturer of the projectile, just the type and weight.
  19. I'll cast my vote for the Lyman manual. Also Hornady. Sierra puts out a nice one. Get several, compare. One thing in noticed was that when I updated mine was that some of the older calibers, oddball ones, had been dropped. You might consider at the very least the Lyman (which has a great overview of the history of firearms along with the how to and load data), get the manual from the brand of bullets you will be using and the powder you will be using.
  20. The 2nd, Feleena, has been posted in The Saloon several times in the past 2 or 3 years.
