  1. Possum speaks true - However... If she insists on staying inside, consider buying a VERY large exhaust fan for gun room, invest in a can of Febreze Air - this actually worked here. Above advice also goes for vegetable brush...before returning to kitchen. CS
  2. The Polish capper will work on the stock cylinders, BUT it is fairly pricey and has to be shipped from the homeland...no idea if that is a problem these lockdown/quarantine days or not. Cash cappers in either style are easily obtainable. The modification to the cylinders is easy enough, and then any capper will work, as Tyrel noted. I had problems fitting the Remington caps into the cheap Traditions cappers, never tried a Cash straight capper... bought a Polish instead, and have been very happy with it. CS
  3. Strongly agreed - but having said that, any Match Director anywhere is welcome to pull apart a random round from my supply...Long Live the Pale Rider Categories! CS
  4. True enough for all the events across the board, as I understand it, but the specific event of hurling (of which I had no knowledge, so had to look up) is referred to as "Gaelic Hurling" on my source, which was the web site Ireland 101. CS
  5. In the interest of providing entertainment for those who might prefer to be "house-bound:" Remember the good old days of ABC's Wide World of Sports, when we were treated to arm wrestling from Petaluma, and Gaelic hurling competitions, among others? Well, since they have apparently run out of ten-year-old football/basketball broadcasts, the folks at ESPN 2 have decided to go seriously "old-school" today! Following is a listing of today's programming, straight from the web site. I removed air times to save a little space... Highland Games Putt Putt Championships IDEAL Electricians National Championship 51st National Stone Skipping Competition World Sport Stacking Championship 2007 2019 World Sign Spinning Championship The 12th Annual World Sign Spinning Championship, held in Las Vegas, brought together Arrow Sign Spinners from more than 50 cities and a dozen countries to assess style, execution, and technical sign spinning ability. Krystal World Hamburger Eating Championship 2006 Johnsonville Brat Eating World Championship 2006 European TramDriver Championship Tram drivers from all over Europe head to Brussels to take part in events such as speed estimation with covered speedometer, target braking, exact stop, and the popular tram bowling. 2019 Stupid Robot Fighting League Created in New Zealand by John Espin, Stupid Robot Fighting is a rather unique form of fighting that pits two life-sized hanging puppets controlled by an operator sitting behind each Stupid Robot. 46th Annual Cherry Pit Spitting Championship Arm Wrestling E:60 On ESPN8 Features include the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest, sasquatch calling and the Great American Beard and Moustache Championship.

  6. https://www.missouribullet.com/ "Cowboy#1" = 250 RNFP. Also available in coated if you like. CS
  7. If that's anything like the FIAT a buddy of mine owned, it won't work at all!
  8. And a gentleman as well, not demanding of the undivided attention that some(?) Hollywood types require these days. Had the privilege and pleasure of quite inadvertently finding myself walking to, and sitting next to, Paul Newman at the drivers' meeting at an SCCA National Race at Road America, Wisconsin. When he was racing, he asked only to be treated as a racing peer...wouldn't have any part of being treated as "royalty." CS
  9. Platform boots! Worn for the intimidation factor by all three high school wrestling coaches at all our meets. All of us were over 6' tall anyway, and three inch platforms served the purpose...School colors of red vests, gold pants (slightly flared, of course). I actually got used to walking on the things...
  10. The big TV in the living room is on cable, through a digital box for all the extra packages. Bedroom TV is straight, Basic cable. If (when) the feed to the fancy digital box goes haywire - it's Mediacom after all - Basic usually stays on, and most of the channels I usually watch are available. Also, bedroom TV is convenient for Weather Channel in the morning on bad weather days...no "weather APPs" on the flip phone! CS
  11. +1...#74 on the left, #75 on the right! CS
  12. My son, Colonel Kit Coyote...anyone remember the source of the alias?
  13. Finally! The photo really I wanted to include back in Post #5 - found the thumb drive lurking in the bottom of my travel bag! Also, adding a photo of Bookworm Sandy, who passed away a few years ago.
  14. Alias: Count Sandor SASS # 74075 From: Rock Island, IL Shooting: 10 years
  15. My diploma reads "Bachelor of Science in Education in Geography." That meant that I would spend the first eight years of my career teaching only literature, grammar, spelling, and anything else that was covered by my minor in English. The rules were such that both the major and minor fields were covered by the "in Education" part. Of course, I taught a number of other subjects, but had to have more than 1/2 my class load in the major/minor fields. CS
