    My wife's step father lived about a mile from the rocks and we took a 20' trailer to pick up some I beams from him. We backed up the trailer to the larger rocks and rolled them up the dovetail on the trailer, it took everything my friend and I had to get them in. The more I think about it it may have been 20 years ago, I was definitely younger. I say this because I moved the big ones where they are now in front of the bar with a tractor 3-4 years ago and it took everything I had just to spin them where I wanted them. I had to be younger, the one big one in the center is very heavy. We did landscaping for many years and I built many ponds and waterfalls which means handling alot of rocks but mostly flagstone from Tennessee and these rocks are heavier than any flagstone I handled. We used equipment to move large boulders when needed, the crazy part is down here we buy rocks by the pound because they all have to be shipped in. The only rock natural down here it different size gravel and the largest is like what is used in cement or roads, there are 2 gravel/sand pits a few miles from here. We dug a few 1-3 acre mud bottom ponds within a mile of our house and a 1.5 acre pond in our yard. In this area about 8'-12' deep you hit sand for a few feet then gravel, I don't know what happens after that because for a pond if you hit either you need to pack clay back in or it will never hold water so we never go deeper. Looking at the gravel pits I think the sand gravel mix goes a long way from the way it looks. I was always interested in rocks but know 0 about them, but we collect them anyway.

    It was in Homer Louisiana, about a mile from what is supposed to be the highest peak in Louisiana, at least that's what an old man said. I will try to look at a satellite picture and figure out where it was. Or the road it was off of. There was also some of the same colored rock but much more solid and heaver. I will add a couple more pictures, that bubble rock (I think) is not anywhere as dense as the solid pieces. I have some small pieces and a couple at least as big as the bubble rock, very heavy. I will go get pics and edit this post in a few minutes.

    You would think but it looks like the picture is a little deceiving with the pyramid being so big. Looking at the fence in front of the stones it looks like your high enough to be halfway up which is a pretty good ways. i bet if you were on the ground in front of it looking up it would look much bigger ? But it wouldn't be framed with the pyramid in the back like you have it which is nice.

    Very cool. Since you are a rock hound I have a question, we have collected rocks for the garden for years. Some were out of ships, they use them for ballast and they use to unload them along the river downriver from New Orleans, usually kind of white and pink marble in some cases. But these are not what I wanted to ask about, when collecting rocks in North Louisiana close to the Arkansas border we ran across something I had never seen before. It was a line of rocks hundreds of feet long and averaging 5'-10' wide which looked like it bubbled up out of the ground. We collected a few and brought them home, I would think they are partly iron or iron ore. It's just the way the bubbled up which was something I had never seen before. They have been in the garden for over 10 years now and the tops are rusting or at least falling apart ? There are two pieces left, this one is the biggest, about 3' long and 2' wide. It's just strange the way it is bubbled looking. Ipad pic sorry

    That's good, you need to support all the bad habits, like a place to live, electricity, food, a way to work, you know the luxuries we get use to.

    Building First Kilpsch Home Cinema Kit *HELP

    Welcome, your going to be in for quite a big change in sound.
  10. Well I won some cornwall lll's at the 2006 Pilgrimage in Hope. They were yet to be built and we were told to pick either black, Walnut or Cherry, we picked the Walnut finish because the plant manager said it was the best Walnut they had received in years. We had to go see the girl in the office and let her know, so we did her name was Mrs Donna, we talked a little and before we left I asked her if it were not to much trouble could she get the people in the plant to sign the backs with a permanent marker, just out of respect for doing such good looking work. Mrs Donna kind of freaked out on us saying NO Way we would ever do that to a speaker, it can't happen ! I said OK we didn't want to start any trouble were just thrilled to get the speakers. Well a while later they called to get a shipping address and we told them we would rather drive to pick them up instead of taking a chance on damage during shipping and she said fine whenever your ready just come see me, we told her thank you and left a couple of days later. When we got to the office she said all we had to do was to go over to she shipping building about a mile away and they were waiting for us. Before we left she said we have something for you and she handed me a brown folder, in it was a certificate for the speakers signed by everyone who worked on them and a cd which had a picture of each employee working on the Cornwalls. This was way more than we had asked for, we thanked her and asked her to please tell everyone working on them Thank You for what they do. We left drove a mile and picked up the speakers and drove home, of all the speakers we have this is one pair we will never get rid of, not that we plan on letting any of them go anywhere. After winning these in 06 it's the reason why if my name is picked at Pilgrimage (and it has) I pass and they pick again, it's only fair and it couldn't beat the shock it was on 06 to win. This is the pictures they sent, A forum member put them online for people to see, Cyclonecj put them and they are still there. Thanks http://www.cyclonecj.com/dtel/Dtelcorns-small/

    It's going to be a little shocking. Love the sub, it's easily the cleanest sub I have ever heard.

    They don't get paid enough for that job, it's crazy, just the pursuit alone is dangerous.

    Store Bought Barbecue Sauce

    It never really does, with cooking there are always ways to improve the taste, it's fun to experiment, and you can eat the testing.

    Store Bought Barbecue Sauce

    We did exactly that years ago, but changed to starting with a ketchup base instead, it was cheaper for large batches, and we were adding so many different things it made no difference in the end. At one point I looked up many recipes, just to see what were the most common ingredients and started using those to fix the ketchup base changeling it for how we liked it. I did the same for rubs, look up some different recipes, it's a pretty regular list of starter indgrements. Tried many things and liked most of them, I should do it again and keep records this time, it's not like you make it everyday so it's hard to keep track of. I marinate alot so I am always trying different things with that also.

    Cornwall 3 in a new room. Feedbacks need

    I would start with what looks good to you, see how it sounds and move them around a little, it would be a place to start anyway. What is on the floor, if it's a hard surface maby a rug would help and like you said curtains. If it's all hard surfaces something will probably need to be added to absorb some reflections. I would start with whatever furniture that's going to be used and go from there.
