  1. Martin Pyrker is the name of the dad. He's an Austrian Blues/Boogie Woogie piano player with quite a name in the area. His daughter Sabine Pyrker is the drummer. She's quite talented. Both are professional musicians.
  2. Here's a father/daughter duet. I quite enjoyed it. She's pretty comfortable behind the kit.
  3. Ya might just need to put it over a chrono. I have a chrono. But I don't have any Remington .22 Short 29 gr. Golden Bullet rounds, and I don't have a .22 with a 2 inch barrel.
  4. I may not be so lucky. Our HVAC died a catastrophic death and the new one won't be installed until 5/30. And it's still over 80 degrees. I don't cope so well with the heat.
  5. The closest I've come to the paranormal was a bigfoot encounter near Seneca Rocks in WVA. I was out there with a friend. Camping and climbing during the day. Late one night (no idea of the time), we were awoken and in a great state of unreasonable fear. Something bipedal, and really big, was walking about the campsite. The footsteps just sounded massive. Neither one of us was brave enough to turn on a light and look. Next morning, some stuff on the table was moved about, and what had been a full soda can was empty and crushed tighter than either of us could do. There were 17 or 18 inch long footprints, near on an inch deep in the dirt. Wish I had stuff to cast 'em. Most folks don't believe it.
  6. I found out my band was booked to play at a hotel that is reportedly haunted. While reading up about it, a song popped into my head. It was eerie.
  7. I just drop in a lube wad and don't worry about it. I tend to overdo it with lube. Keeps everything running well, though it is messy.
  8. I think we should not dismiss the notion that any representatives of another civilization that can visit us are very many years ahead of us in technology and understanding of the universe. Enough so that what they can do would look like magic to us.
  9. After the recent post on UFO's, I got to thinking about other phenomena. Anyone have any encounters or possible encounters that they'd care to share?
  10. I sure hope not. That wouldn't say much about them, would it?
  11. I find the entire topic interesting. To think we're the only intelligent life in the galaxy (much less the Universe) is some extravagant arrogance. Why other intelligent species would want to visit this little planet is a puzzle.
  12. Guessing you'll need glass or metal. Maybe something like this? https://www.amazon.com/Dropper-Stop-Bottles-Tapered-Droppers/dp/B07W5RDSVP/ref=asc_df_B07W5RDSVP/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=366289513858&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=13683213654164678203&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9032475&hvtargid=pla-819911462348&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=76644117579&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=366289513858&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=13683213654164678203&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9032475&hvtargid=pla-819911462348
  13. I would suggest that we can trust shooters to use good judgement. We have the right safety rules in place regarding the 170, as well as rounds over the berm. I also have a fair bit of anecdotal evidence to support this. In my opinion, I think you’re expecting that if it’s allowed, and there is a stage written for it, that there will be issues. I maintain that I believe shooters will make good judgments about their abilities and limitations. I don’t believe that this argument is valid.
  14. Indeed. Especially a change like this that's been ingrained since the beginning. And one where all of the arguments to keep it are specious.
