  1. It's not about NEED, it's all about WANT! I won't want one either. Angus
  2. A friend of mine rigged his computer to say, in Curly's voice from the Three Stooges: "I'm tryin' ta think, but nothin' happens!" Angus
  3. OK, I think I got everybody PM'd with details. My wife has PayPal and I think I've worked out a 90/10 split with her (90% for her, 10% for me) for payments. Looks like I've still got 2000 9mm and 3000 .40 S&W available. Now I need to make a trip to the PO to get some more boxes. Thanks, Angus
  4. 9mm Brass 1000 for $45 or 2000 for $65 shipped CONUS Mostly brass, but a couple bags of a thousand have some nickle cases mixed in. I didn't used to separate brass from nickle. 8000 available .40 S&W Brass 1000 for $45 or 2000 for $65 shipped CONUS. 5000 brass and 1000 nickle cases available. Angus
  5. I decided to take up running today. Just a spur of the moment idea. Man, those cops came out of nowhere! Angus
  6. No law says you can't have fun with it. (yet) I kinda liked the guy wearing an engine's air filter on his head like a hat with hoses running to the mask on his face. Angus
  7. That's interesting. The father of my buddy grew up in that area. I remember him talking about both Pinckneyville and Chester. I think he had family in both towns. Always talked about the big family Thanksgiving meals: 'Coon, 'Possum and a bunch of other stuff I've never tried. Oddly enough, I don't recall him ever mentioning Turkey. My grandmother also used to make a wilted salad. Wonderful stuff. I wish I'd learned to make it from her. Angus
  8. I'm not sure what you mean by that. Unless you are referring to the staff angle again. Since I'm thinking about getting one for a single shot (Sharps .45-70) I'm not real concerned about having to reset/lift the sight after each shot. I'm more concerned about any difference in adjusting the sights and repeatability/consistency of adjustments. I tend to agree with the "Buy once, cry once" philosophy. I'm just concerned if the extra money is worth the extra tears. If the place wasn't about a 5 hour drive for me I'd be tempted to drive over and take a real hands on look at them. Also, Why were you unhappy with the Mid-range sight? What distances are you shooting and what calibers? The longest range I've ever had access to was 600 yards. Now I think I'd be lucky to find a 300 yard range. I'm thinking the Mid-range sight would be plenty enough sight for me. Angus
  9. What's the big difference between the "Super" grade and the "Standard"(?) grade sights that makes it worth the extra money? Angus
  10. I am given to understand that the McCloskeys(sp?) are quite prone to sue. Including suits against their own family members and the home owners associations of their various properties. I'm sure if there is any chance for a lawsuit they will jump on it. The St. Louis City attorney is quite the piece of work herself. I'm sure she's disappointed that there isn't a Police Officer, or two, involved in the incident that she could charge with something. Angus
  11. Not surprisingly you guys have passed way above my knowledge of electrical wiring. A couple of your new questions that I understand and can answer: I went around and checked all outlets outside and in the garage unplugging everything. I didn't know anything about "in" and "out" or "line" and "load" sides on GFI circuits. I used the old GFI as a reference when changing wires onto the new GFI. I suppose I could have gotten them mixed up. Also the new GIF is slightly different than the one it replaced. It has a small light in it. I do have an attic fan. I haven't checked that. Haven't used it for at least a couple months. Haven't hung any pictures. I don't know what "PT" or "CT" means. Several heavy rains in the past few weeks. Not likely rain got into outside outlets, but not impossible. I don't know how I would even do this. The wires run thru the walls, so how would I know which white wire went where? Not affecting anything in the kitchen. The only outlets affected are the GFI in bathroom B, the garage outlets and the outside outlets. All the above is why I'll be paying a licensed electrician the big bucks to fix the problem. BTW, this is interesting. Maybe I should have been an electrician. Angus who knows the difference between to, two and too, they're, there and their, then and than, but still has problems with affect and effect. (sensing a tangent coming on)
  12. No idea. I can only assume it was the electrician contracted for the job when the house was built ~1984 Yep, started a couple days ago. We've lived here 20 years. Angus
  13. First, the guy that built this house did a lot of weird stuff. Electrical wiring included. We started having a problem with the GFI's in our two bathrooms. The GFI in bathroom A works fine, but the GFI in bathroom B doesn't work. If the GFI's don't work then the outside outlets, front and back, along with the garage outlets don't work. I thought GFI B was broken so I replaced it. Same problem. Reset GFI B and GFI A cuts out. Reset GFI A and GFI B cuts out. And if GFI A is out there is no power to GFI B. No effect on the breaker in the basement. Nothing plugged in in any of the associated outlets. My guess is there is some type of short between GFI B and one of the other outlets. IF that is the case how does one check the circuit between GFI B and the various outlets without power? We should have a licensed Electrician out to check on this sometime next week, but I thought it would be nice (and save some time) if I could give him some idea where to start checking. Plus, I'd really like to know for myself. So, can you tell what the problem is from my description? If so, what's the solution? Thanks, Angus
  14. I've only been knocked out once. I was hit square in the chest by a golf ball. I was somewhere around 13 years old. I remember turning around when my friend yelled at me and saw a golf ball approaching..... Next thing I remember was a bunch of my friends and one of the neighbors standing over me as I lay on the ground. They said I dropped like a rock. The neighbor had been looking out his window when it happened and he thought I was dead. The poor guy was white as a sheet. I don't even remember being sore. I went right back to whacking golf balls with my friends. The neighbor bought us a big bag of plastic golf balls. Angus
  15. I would guess that as part of your sentencing the judge will order you to repay the money. Angus
  16. From the commercials I've seen it's just misc. celebrities sitting on a couch, or in bed, or where ever making comments on some tv show. I don't know if they ever actually show the program they are watching or if it's just people making comments about the show. I think the show watchers are different every week. I also don't know what show is being shown to the show watchers or if it's the same show or different one every week. I've never watched the "Watch Party" or whatever it's called, and I don't think I'm likely to do so. Angus
  17. Absolutely desperate! At least the "entertainment" industry thinks so. There is actually a tv show that is celebrities(?) watching other tv shows. Do people actually need other people to tell them what they think while watching tv? Wow! Just, wow. Angus
  18. It took 12 1/2 minutes to answer my big question. Knowing it was primer fired, and seeing the location of the primer, I was wanting to know how they could be sure the primer was properly aligned with the firing pin. Turns out it is a simple, obvious, answer I was just missing. Angus
  19. Yep, good stuff. If I have the ingredients for the old coffee cake recipe I'm going to try that one today. Angus
  20. I'm not real experienced as a baker. I'm not too good at improvising baked goods. If I don't have proper directions I'm lost.
  21. OK, I can do that. Not sure where the recipe came from, but it was written in my grandmother's hand writing. Amish Cinnamon Bread - Makes 2 Loaves No kneading. Just mix it up and bake Batter: 1 Cup butter - softened 2 Cups sugar 2 Eggs 2 Cups Buttermilk (2 Cups milk + 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice) 4 Cups Flour 2 teaspoons Baking Soda Cinnamon/Sugar Mix: 2/3 Cup Sugar 2 teaspoons Cinnamon Mix in separate bowl Directions: Cream together Butter, 2 Cups Sugar and Eggs Add Buttermilk, Flour and Baking Soda Put half of the batter, or less, into greased loaf pans (1/4 in each) Sprinkle 3/4 of the Cinnamon mix on top of the batter in the two pans. Add remaining batter to pans. Sprinkle remaining Cinnamon mix on top and swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes (Mine took a lot longer for some reason) Test with toothpick. Cool 20 minutes before removing from pan. FWIW, on one loaf I swirled/mixed the Cinnamon mix in the bottom half of the batter before adding the second half. On the other loaf I just spread the mix on top of the bottom half of the batter. When done you couldn't really see the Cinnamon mix in the first loaf, but on the second (where I actually followed the directions) you could see where the mix had kind of mixed itself up in the bread while it baked. Both tasted great, but I think I'll stick with the original instructions in the future. It's not bread dough like I expected. This pours out of the mixing bowl. Maybe I should have added more flour? Enjoy, Angus
  22. That one is pretty similar to the one I have. The main difference is mine calls for "White Sugar" instead of Brown Sugar. Plus a couple of other minor differences. Angus
  23. I've been trying to work my way thru some old boxes of recipes I inherited, to see which ones I like and which to get rid of/give away. Last night was "Amish Cinnamon Bread". Pretty good. Several of the recipes only list ingredients without any baking directions. One is "War Cake". I'm really curious about which war. I haven't tried that one, yet. Obviously from back in the day when people actually knew how to cook and didn't need directions. Next week is "Cherry Delight" and "Coffee Cake". The plan is to take the ones I've tried and like and put them all in one box. Shouldn't take me more than six or seven years. Angus
