    Nah, he won't do that, Donnie, because he has become so used to the personal freedoms that the Constitution affords all of us, that he would die of a heart attack at the very thought of someone saying that he couldn't spout his socialist crap wherever and whenever he likes! The frustrating thing about global warming is, to me, anyway, the fact that nobody is around to verify or deny previous major shifts in the climate over the centuries. There may be historical records available that would show that the same shifts have occurred in the past, but if there are someone is keeping them very quiet.
  2. IL-2 CoD

    Hey, OG, did you get this sorted out? You actually never see a CUP Shortcut because you have to use the IL-2 Selector to start the game of choice, e.g DOF, WAW, etc. So, make a shortcut to IL-2 Selector and you'll be OK.

    Amen to that! And now our bleeding-heart Liberals are letting in a large number of Syrian refugees as a humanitarian gesture, which sounds great if our HSA checks each and every one of them for any Terrorist affiliation, or is that a no-no in this day and age? I think the good ol' USA is going to have to smarten up one day and realize that this is not the 1930s when America was the hope of the World.
  4. What a great video! I love to see these a/c reconstructions take place. But what a hell of a responsibility for Stew Dawson!

    Yeah, CJ, enough with the slacking! Back to work in the Salt Mine, ya' bum!

    I don't think so............at my age it could be misconstrued!

    Can't D/L the link........It starts then just goes to an empty screen. Could someone e-mail it to me, please?
  8. Sunday

    Meanwhile, (Wait for it, Wait for it!) in beau..................etc, etc, it's 100F with very low humidity, and heavy overcast from the fires, which, thank God, are being contained, with improving conditions early next week. I can't wait! And the real fire season hasn't started, yet!
  9. New Style Restaurant in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

    From what little I know of the drug industry, I'd rather have a pot farm in the area than a meth lab! Not only can cooking meth cause serious explosions because of all the butane used, but the use of meth is a brain-burner far worse than the use of pot, which can help the pain in certain illnesses. I HATE ALL DRUG USE, AFTER SEEING WHAT IT DID TO RELATIVES AND FRIENDS! NO PUNISHMENT IS BAD ENOUGH FOR DRUG DEALERS IN MY ESTIMATION!

    Nah, the problem's worse than that. Luckily, the two fires are to the East of us, and although it looks like they're going to join together, they're in BLM Land and not threatening many structures. We're looking at 98F temps and 20% humidity with 20-30mph winds which makes them move really fast, so even if Donnie farted on them it wouldn't make much difference! Wait a minute, though, he could probably just blow them out bit by bit...................Hang on, I'll call the Calif. Dept. of Forestry and see if they're interested!

    It IS? Man, these wildfires are nasty!
  12. RIP indeed! What a fascinating man! I'm struck by the tremendous difference in his demeanor over what he did, and how it would be presented in todays Media! Once again, WW2 and its spinoffs have shown what a shallow world we now live in!

    No prob, Mikew. Guess I'm a little sensitive about what passes these days for humor, and rush to defend the downtrodden! You are downtrodden, right, Dr Stans?
  14. Saturday

    Somebody call me? Hard to tell these days with one of my hearing aids giving feedback whistle! Today the smoke and ash from the Rocky Wildfire which is just across Clearlake from our place has diminished a lot with the windshift last night. It appears to have reversed itself so is slowly burning out. So far it has consumed about 18000 acres of brush and trees and for the last three days we've had this pall of brown smoke and falling ash over us, but fortunately it is no threat. At least it prompted me to clear out several overgrown Lavender bushes that had moved up to the back deck. Being full of Lavender oil they would go up like bombs in the event a wildfire started here, and a neighbor who is a retired CDF Chief strongly recommended their removal. Nasty stuff! Ah, the joys of living in California! BTW, yesterday was 103F with 60% humidity. Today it's 85F with 80% humidity, so everyone is breathing a little easier.

    Not cool, Mikew.
