    Pins, pins, pins! And Pins again!

    Anyone with any heavy equipment that digs has likely had to deal with pins at one time or another. One of my 'little projects' earlier this summer was to move a 600' long 8' high and about 50' wide (at base) dam about 75' and then I added about a half acre or so to my existing lake. Anyway, I...

    How Many Guitar Players Are Prowling These Pages?

    I've gotten into learning the guitar since I've had some physical issues with walking. I'm clearly no prodigy in any sense of the word, but I do enjoy learning. It is a challenge to me, especially since I've never played any instrument in my life until my mid 50's. Besides learning to play...

    Dargo (the German Shepherd, not me) has died

    I haven't been here in quite a while as I've been battling my own physical battle and refused to let pain and sleep deprivation taint my disposition. I actually go in for the first of at least a couple major back surgeries next week, but that is not the reason for the post. My buddy, companion...

    Dargo is deaf and doesn't see well.

    Not me, the real Dargo. He was born on new years eve 2001. He now has finally decided that he would prefer to go inside the garage at night when it is really cold instead of always staying outside; regardless of the weather. His younger buddy, Bruno, is the pretty well the same, and he is 2...

    Should my daughter accept invite to Phi Beta Kappa?

    We get bombarded by all sorts of mail, emails and scams of various sorts. This doesn't appear to be a scam (my daughter is the 106th listed person here Phi Beta Kappa, but is it worth it? It goes without saying I was not asked to join when in college, and I can honestly say I haven't given a...

    The best of wishes to all and to all a good night.

    Life and circumstances have taken me in a different direction so, since I've never been good at 'goodbyes', I just want to wish all a happy, healthy, prosperous life filled with friends and family. It is time for me to sign off, so I bid you all a fond farewell! Peace, Dargo "Brent"

    Anyone had any experience with a Subaru?

    It seems that whenever I've been in the northeast, about every other car seems to be some sort of Subaru Forester, Outback or whatever they are called. There aren't hardly any around where I live, but I've run across a 2004 model that a guy bought new and is selling because he bought a new...

    Loading your pickup

    I should have somebody post a video of me putting my little excavator on the bed of my pickup. Bed height is 46" and I do not have any ramps. It used to make my butt pucker a bit, but now it just makes people stop and watch. I created a small traffic jam loading up this afternoon leaving one of...

    Did your great grandfather just receive a draft notice?

    ROFL!!! Our brilliant Selective Service just sent out over 14,000 draft notices to men born between the years 1893 to 1897 in PA. Draft Notices Wow, the youngest in that group would be around 117 years old. I'm not so sure they'd be up to climbing all around the mountains in Afghanistan. That...

    What is your take on Hamas rocketing Israel?

    I happen to have a good friend who immigrated to US about 30 years ago, and became a US citizen, but has most of his family and old friends still living in Israel. He is an older gent, and wears hearing aids in each ear due to losing hearing while serving in his country as a young man in Israel...

    Motorcycle helmets should be replaced every 5 years?

    That seems to be what I've read in most places now. Being that I have 3 destroyed full face Bell helmets in my old motocross trophy case (that were destroyed while I was wearing them), I am one of those who literally never rides without a helmet. Several years ago I did buy a "modular" helmet...

    Holy bird poo!

    I tried for years to get purple martins to nest out in houses I placed on our lake dock without success. Last night what looks like a whole flock of them kept flying under my wrap-around porch. Today they have a huge glob of mud stuck directly above my front door on my house and are pooping...

    Homeland Security says do NOT use IE because of major flaws

    I assumed that this info would be here, but I haven't seen it. Sorry if this is a duplicate. Anyway, yesterday Homeland Security and most major IT companies sent out announcements to NOT use Internet Explorer; period, until Microsoft is able to fix the "major" flaw and bug that allows 'low...

    Obama's health care DISASTER

    As many know, I've wasted months of my life just trying to get health care coverage for my family after the coverage we had had for the last 18 years was terminated 1/1/14. After well over 100 hours of my time spent dealing with these total morons (and I say that because I have been a licensed...

    How do I get even with a deadbeat scooter rider?

    ...without going to jail? Let me preface this question. Almost 4 months ago I was sitting at a stoplight in my Acura and a moron on a "VIP" scooter (the cheapest of the cheap scooters) rammed me from behind and ripped a $750 bumper cover on my car. When I got out of the car, the guy (mid 30's...
