  1. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    an Olympics moment I don't recall whether it was a skiing or skating event. The commentators were saying of a particular contestant, "They are very good, but, they fall down a lot" dumb question In the figure skating events, what happens to the flowers that are thrown, after the girls in pink dresses, collect them up? I was guessing they went back to the vendors to be resold and thrown again
  2. Bifocal lens vs Progressive lens

    I dunno folks. I have been wearing glasses for 50yrs+... nearsighted.... I cannot read billboards w/o them .... do it the old fashioned way. Look under the lenses or take them off when I am working close

    not much sand here. I have rock. if ya wanna split hairs, I don't live in "the desert". This region is classified as semi-arid grassland. There is prolly as much cacti in Colorado as here.. A few prickly pear and some agave. I cut oak for the fireplace.

    I gotta get me a better LF.... my Olds is a classic ... but, in the wrong sense of the word.

    As awful as the school musical performances are, I enjoy going to orchestra programs. It is SOOOO bad sounding and the kids are trying so hard. Playing analog instruments [fretless string] really point to one good note and an infinity of wrong ones.

    I drive an '89 Olds HaHaHa A friend was visiting from MT. He was in his "WarWagon". Big ol'Chevy 4X4. I wanted to show him around. He wanted to get his dog out. I offered to take him where I cut wood. He asked if he should drive.... "No, I don't want you to tear your truck up".

    It doesn't stick around long. Worst I know, it was closed for 4 days after 3 days of rain. Normal is hours. the ground is so dry/hard, that it generally runs off. We have dirt roads in town. They have a glaze of slip [sloppy clay].

    ... one of the "charms" of country life I think we are landlocked. The road out of town is awfully quiet this is a normal thing for us any time we get a substantial amt of rain.

    HaHaHa think we've all been there being a desert rat, the first thing I said when I hit the jetway, getting off the plane on Kauai, "I smell water!" we have been smelling water for the past two or three days. Finally got to drink. I guess an inch plus, since yesterday afternoon. Good soaking rain. Wife is on the verge of calling a weather day. was plowing thru the local CL ads. Appears [to my novice eyes] that amplification is going to be much easier than getting a pair of Cornwalls

    I was working in a trailer factory in Elkhart. We were living large for 21 year olds. $180/mo for a 3 bedroom house. 3 of us sharing the place. We had a lot of "disposable income". HaHaHa MKP, I'm new here. Don't know you ... but, sorry for your family's loss.

    I get lump mesquite charcoal. It is cheap. They make it across "the line" where the wife works. I think they are making charcoal and baking/burning adobes at the same time.

    does sous vide translate to precook? Not criticizing. Just summing the process up. the flame and char is just for appearance, basically. Yeah, I have do use that to do my wife's steak ... she want's hers well done - no pink. otherwise we tend to end up with jerky.

    I'd try them peppers. I wouldn't eat a whole one ... I'm crazy, not stupid. I have some that grow wild down here. They are pretty warm. That they grow wild is your first hint. Similar to a chile tepin... chile pequin [bird peppers]. Little things. About the size of a pea. I cracked a green one between my teeth. That was as far as it got. Gag reflex disposed of it. And it NEVER touched anything but my teeth. and I will nibble on habaneros
  15. Mistakes by DIY's, hookups, etc ...

    in my R/C, I melted a whole lighting circuit with one Oops. I mean, the wire glowed and melted... That one of my more spectacular, but not expensive, mistakes.
