  1. Just a few examples.... Nasty snow crab 36$s a LB, used cars are about 20 percent higher than models that sold 3 years ago for less. plywood for 40$ a sheet, yet the local store has so much of it it crazy. Bought a simple bowl of Thai soup and 2 egg rolls today 28$ Indian for 3 65$. What happened to supply and demand! or is this just their pound of flesh after covid
  2. Artto I still do! LOVE IT!!! I use a Yamaha T-85 it has outdone many about ten tuners including the modern Sony XDHR i think it was? that was an unpleasant tuner but as we all know synergy wins the day....
  3. I used to play softball with the Buffalo Philharmonic, I guess I was their ringer. I was lucky enough to get tickets every weekend and could sit wherever I wanted. Kleinhans music hall has great acoustics. Always sat dead center about 15 rows from the stage. Just an amazing experience. Funny tale, threw a riser from third hit the first basemen on the forehead. He sat down it sounded like I hit a pumpkin. Great place to listen to music and there are some good recordings from this venue. Its just a huge horn....
  4. Very nice Bob Crites Jubilee bass bin crossovers. Passive 225 shipped. Thanks!
  5. Here is a simple dish i made for my Family last night. Unconventional Fish and Chips! Haddock with a a cup of rice flour a half cup of corn starch a half cup of flour, 1 tablespoon of salt 3 tsp of black pepper, tbls of Paprika, two tsp of chile powder. one dark beer a little bit of 100 proof Vodka make a batter and let it sit, add cold water if its its too thick or more beer or Vodka. Dry off the fish and dredge in flour then into the batter . fried sliced chips with what I call "Canadian Ketchup" in Canada they often offer vinegar with their ketchup and French fries so i just mix the two. Tarter sauce with lemon, mayo, minced sweet Gerkins Capers and a few red pepper flake and a little sugar to taste. Crunchy fish with great flavors!
  6. As a child my Mother cooked almost everything from scratch and was a good cook. We had a good size Library in our house and some days when I didnt have learning or sports to do and it was raining i would flip through some of her three hundred or more cook books. I was a veggie for almost two decades so i needed too really master cooking. Share some of your favorite foods or recipes please!
  7. Islander and Randy these may all be truths......I found a burn pit under about 10 inches of leaves ,and dirt with very old glass bottles. I think its from the loggers or rail builders that came here. our local University has asked many times to dig in our area, and mounds. I cant imagine this place with Natives and 125 feet white pine trees that built much of the West.....
  8. Randy if you look up Soo Line high bridge, or Arcola Trail high bridge, or CN high bridge you will find some pictures of its scale. Its kind of a weird area but its nice. We have Native American burial mounds all over the place. My sister may have one of the rarest in the state. Most are irregular in shape and not very big. Hers is a almost perfect circular mound 100 feet across and 15 feet high. Its said that these mounds are around 6500 yrs old.
  9. Per Wiki its a 184 feet tall by 2682 feet in length with just five arches. Its just a one track bridge, and when i kayak underneath it iam amazed. Kids either for their own reasons or for stupidity jump off of it..... the river is very shallow in this area....The outcome isnt good. When i see the cars under the humble beginnings on my street, a dirt road and heavy wood very old pilings covered in creasote .... its very sad....
  10. what does this have to do with BGs?I saw it before and will see it again just perhaps not with a small Jet! Bi planes are more fun to watch!
  11. Dont know how fast it was going, i was just in awe! If you look up the bridge and see the arches you can see how big they are. People have fallen off this bridge and found their demise.....
  12. This is very sad news. Although I didnt know him, he seamed like a kind and gentle soul.. I hope his family moves forward and embraces all that they loved about him!
  13. Crazy stuff! i live in the St Croix valley< there is an expansive bridge that crosses the WI MN borders over the St. Croix river,, that carries trains , its a very old bridge i think it was around 1910 to 11 when built. It starts about 100 yards from my house. I have seen propeller planes do it about 9 times but never a jet......What a nut!!!
  14. Was playing in a traditional Thanksgiving touch football game. Was tuckered. My friend gave me a jug of cold water, had a sip and he said "it tastes like growing up" he was right! Cool clean water is a thing of beauty....
  15. Thats a very small Fisher Randy, I saw one that was 3 times that size, the small female I saw again yesterday was so fast and elusive, it was wild!
  16. Harmon Kardon HK430 twin for 200 and a 330B for 150 seem to be in excellent condition. No AFL.
  17. RandyHoo, there are documented cases of large male Fishers killing Lynxes. There was an extensive long study that was done in Maine, they like their throats!
  18. Thats funny! I have the weirdest dog hes a standard poodle bread for hunting, fast as can be alerts and chases everything thing that moves. Breeder had Labs but found this breed was much easier to train for birding.....Sadly mines is not very bright, but loves my family and is kind as can be.... He tries to befriend every animal he sees, The Fisher might bite his parts off....
  19. I live in the St Croix valley in MN, now if i could see a real bear! ive seen two cubs running up my hill, they are fast! Saw the back of a large one that knocked my garbage can over but the Roman candle i deployed wasnt bright enough to see in the dark.
  20. Rare! only the second one i have ever seen its making a den in my back yard! Better keep the dog close to the house. It growled at me! These beasts can kill a Lynx, and love Porcupine!!!
  21. I love water!!!! I bought my house because of it! I have a deep well and the collection area is a basin 1000 yards away thats 30 acres and then water flows through a very old rock quarry, then through thousands of feet of rock and sand and hills.. its very cold and its parts per million of anything are very low...
  22. Saw the guy that developed the Reaper pepper at his shop.He was making hot sauce with a 3.5 foot stick blender. Had to have 500 of them in his batch. No gloves, no mask, and no eye protection........Must be insane!
  23. Try a few Chiltepens a Habenero a ghost pepper and a jelepeno garlic minced tomato and onion salt vinegar...... very good!
  24. This is so very sad, my best to his family and friends.....
