Gin and tonic with Meyer lemon instead of lime is surprisingly nice. I'm out of limes but have a whole Costco-sized bag of the lemons.....

Our Ohioans for Concealed Carry annual picnic was today. Meet some old friends, listened to some speeches, had some good food...and won a gun from the door prizes.
Ruger 10/22 tactical with threaded barrel.
Mrs price didn't complain i was bringing another gun home.
Also scored a 50-round box of 9mm 115gr+p Gold Dots and a Beretta banner for the gun room.

The good news - the house is under contract.

Also the good news - we found a large lot that we like.

The not so good news. We need to find a rental fast and get moved out of the house, just dropped a crap ton of money as the son (not the one at USNA) is going off to college this week and we still have to find money for a deposit and various other things. We will do it, but I hate the getting crunched like this. It is funny how big expenses always come in groups.

I suppose we could always live under an overpass for a few weeks until we find a place :D

Anyway, the wife is going back to working full time again for the first time about 9 years, so that will be very good from a financial (and probably her sanity) standpoint - but it doesn't actually help until the paychecks roll in.

Interesting times. (Good but "interesting")

Well the wife and I decided that we could not force ourselves to pay rent for a house when the mortgage for a similar sized house would be like half of that.

..... So now we are quick looking for a house that is:

1. Cheap
2. We would not mind living in
3. In an area that we could rent out easily when we are ready.

Plan is to buy it as rental property (i.e. through an LLC) so we can just switch it over as soon as a permanent place is done. The flexibility will be good too since we have no idea how long the buy land / build a house escapade will take. Especially as we have not even chosen the land yet or picked a builder.

Not a lot of time to do this though. Need to pick something in like the next week.

Fun stuff - not.

My wife and I did that while we had our house built. Worked out well. Lived in the house for about 6 months, then made just over closing costs.

It got weird on the Homemade Submarine

I'd guess the skipper was pleased with his reporter and took her out for a little boat ride. I suspect he got a "lil' bit rapey" out there and may have done something he couldn't come back from.

The sub foundered and only he was rescued, whereupon he told the CG folks that his passenger died on the shakedown and he "buried her at sea in an undisclosed location in the bay". He also mentioned he was "toying with some controls and an error occurred".

He was, of course, immediately arrested.

A limbless, headless female torso was recovered mere hours after all this happened. He did seem to neglect to mention he buried her at sea in numerous undisclosed locations.

I suspect the skipper is about to have a very, very bad time. He should be keelhauled, but I'd worry it'd be over too quickly. I am amazed that he tried to pass this story off at all as if the authorities would say something like "Oh, thanks for the tip, we'll see if we can recover her, completely understand your situation, rough going and all that, can we get you anything? Coffee? Tea? Another reporter?"

Submariner said, "I was toying with various things on the submarine, then an error occurred."

That could mean anything:
- I was toying with the reporter, she objected, and I killed her.
- We were seeing who could get their fingers closest to the propeller, and she won.
- Anything else.

Sounds like he deserves a very, very hard time.

Back at work on my new reloading area/bench. Will post pics when it is done: I am doing something similar to what this guy has:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hgmeIh75nk

One difference is I am spacing my t-slot tracks exactly for Inline Fabrication's tall mounts, whereas he only added their mounts as an afterthought, so he's had to rig adapters and drill different holes. Only downside is IF's shorter mounts use a different hole spacing, so if I get any of those later on, I will still need to make adapters. What I will probably do in that case, is buy the shortest of their mounts, and then add some risers made of channel steel that are made to match my bench tracks. But any of the mounts I currently have can be moved to anywhere on the bench, without drilling any new holes.

It's been great being able to take some of my reloading stuff out of the boxes it has been in for the last couple years.

Well the first contract fell through. They did not like the high speed internet options (we have it, just not with the company they wanted to use). Although the good news is that the home inspection they paid for came back with only some minor stuff.

Have another couple who has already looked at the house a couple of times that looks like they are going to put in a contract now that it opened up. So here is hoping.....

That's lame. We finally sold our old house (moved into the new one end of February) at the beginning of this month. It should have been done a lot sooner, but the douche who made us the first offer got cold feet and backed out in May, trying to use the excuse that he didn't have the money for the down payment. We ended up getting all of his earnest money eventually although it didn't come close to covering all of the work he had us do (some of it was legit, but we agreed to do some stupid things he asked for in the interest of just getting it done). I guess he pissed his agent off pretty bad and got fired as a client.

I haven't met the people who ended up buying it (I probably will at some point since I only moved about 500 yards and am friends with a couple of the neighbors there) but they are OK as far as I am concerned; they accepted the previous home inspection and all of the work we'd had done. Would have been closed in under a month but their lender dragged things out a bit.

Wasn't aware that Alfa Romeo was back in the US market until today.

Driving to Microcenter to pick something up for a friend (yes I do tech support for my friends) I saw not one, but two Giulia's. About 6 cars apart, it was a weird deja vu moment.

The Guilia looks about like a 3-series with a really weird front clip.

Weird squinty headlights instead of the BMW cats eyes, and one large triangular central nose opening (you know, like on a human skull) instead of two 'kidney' nostrils.

I was just out mowing the lawn a little while back, and in one spot in the back I found a pair of the hugest acorns I have ever seen. Colossal. Like small bumpy apples.

Apparently the HUGE old oak tree just outside our property line in the middle of the back of the yard, is a bur oak. I was wondering, we'd never seen it drop any acorns before. When we bought the place, just about two years ago, the tree had some truly enormous Virginia creeper vines on it which I cut. I'd rather have an oak tree. I wonder if that helped. Two years later, shazam, giant acorns that take two years to mature.....

I found him kind of an annoying weirdo then - fairly but not exceptionally bright, but definitely irritatingly weird - and knowing he's a lawyer who worked on *that* piece of crap isn't helping.

Guess this is the thread for it... Thought I would mention I finally bought a new truck last week. I'd been driving my '73 Chevy 2wd truck all summer because the '01 Jeep at 152K on the clock has kind of a sick engine, and I'd been conserving it in case I had to drive it for another winter. Sale of the old house last month finally allowed me to upgrade. The '73 that my parents bought new, and in which both AlaskaTRX and I made our first rides home from the hospital will probably go away at some point. Not sure what I am going to do about repairing the Jeep yet, whether it gets a straight reman, stroker kit, or what once I am ready to tackle it. Apparently the last few years of the 4.0 had an iffy head casting which eventually cracks and causes problems with oil pressure that eventually take out the whole motor. It had been losing coolant for a while, with no apparent leaks or contamination in the oil, it had to be going somewhere which means probably out the exhaust. It's had a lot of customization, and I will never find another vehicle that is as unstoppable in the winter, so repairing it is not really a question of if, but rather of when and how. Anyway....

New rig is a 2017 Ram 1500 crew cab with the 5.7 hemi and the 76" box. I wanted it in black but the only choice at either local dealer was the same dark red as AlaskaTRX's power wagon, if I wanted a non-white truck that was anything close to what I wanted mechanically. So that's probably going to cost us a custom paint job on whatever enclosed trailer we end up buying together, since it means we can get it to match both trucks. It seems to have been sitting on the lot for a while (the pictures of it on the dealer website had snow in the bed) and it had been marked way down, so the price was a lot better than I had expected to pay.

People ask me how I like it and about all I can come up with is "it's a truck and I am sure it will do what I need it to do." There's nothing about it that I really hate yet, and it has stupid amounts of power and very good brakes which I got to test the other day when some asian broad tried to change lanes abruptly right in front of me. It's just hard to get excited about it when I basically like my other truck other than lack of 4wd, and we've been together for so long. I'm glad that I don't have to worry about nursing the Jeep through another winter and now have the luxury of taking the time and money to fix it in a way I will be happy with. I am liking the improved fuel mileage a lot while I am hating the increase in my insurance premium even more.

I just looked at the price of diesel conversions for suburbans, and they range from 23-28k. Considering I just saw a 2012(second to last year of the 2500 burn) listed by a dealer at 27 grand, its literally double the value if the truck. :shock:

So my son tells me that one of the Midshipmen Company Commanders at Boat School was relieved because he was caught with "A George Foreman Grille, a futon, a rice cooker and a hot plate" hidden in his room.

First off, I very clearly remember the size of those rooms, WTF? Where did he find room to hide all that stuff?

Secondly, he sounds resourceful and the should promote him.

Just got a new HP laser printer at home. Didn't register the model number until I went to select it and it sunk it that it was an M203.

Can't find a selection option in printer properties for HE, Flare, Smoke, CS or Buckshot. Have to keep checking for driver updates I guess.

Watching the kerfuffle between Andrew Torba and Vox Day. Damn.

The short version is that somehow, Torba has got it into his head that you're being a crybaby if you want him to ban anyone for smearing you as a pedophile, or pursue legal action with the intent to subpoena his company for the user's identifying information.
'Regulate' used to mean the opposite of 'constipate.'

Shopping for stuff to cook for dinner with my 14 year old daughter and she positively begged for me to buy some Brussels sprouts. All good as like them too, but I do not think this is common.

I've begun to notice, on issue after issue.....

As obnoxious, rude, crass and borderline unhinged as Trump and his public statements and Twitter utterances have been, he's been a lightning rod protecting the oppressed.

On how many different issues now have we seen a status quo where libs/progs held the high ground and all the power and regular folks knew to just keep quiet and carry on.... And then Trump blew up the whole situation with one Tweet.

Then the pattern goes, the lib/prog jackboot-wearers try to stomp Trump into line, and naturally fail. And meanwhile, under the cover of Trump's distraction, regular people are able to actually express what used to be a forbidden opinion.

He takes all the outrage and hate of the usual suspects onto himself, so the rest of us can be free of it.

Yeah he's Twitter Jesus.

Sometimes, I just randomly think about how allegedly, Dubya tried to convince Chirac to invade Iraq with the US and UK because "Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East. Biblical prophecies are being fulfilled. This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase His people’s enemies before a new age begins."

re: Gog and Magog

Look further north. Like north to Russia.

Ezekiel 38-39 and in Revelation 20:7-8.
Gog: leader of army that attacks the land of Israel. Described as “of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal” (Ezekiel 38:2-3).

Rosh = Russia. Meshech and Tubal are believed by some to be predecessors of Moscow and Tubolsk.

Depending on your view of eschatology, Ezekiel's battle of Gog and Magog will occur in the tribulation period (in the peaceful first 3 1/2 years).

Trying to lose weight by cutting out wheat, potatoes, rice, sugar, etc. The first three are easy, because I never strongly needed them.

But life without dessert feels strangely pale and dialed back.

BTW, faking frozen yogurt by mixing Greek yogurt, splenda, and orange extract, then putting it in the freezer and stirring every 10 minutes was curiously disappointing. :geek:

Amazon's free shipping is increasingly worth less than you pay for it... Latest batch of stuff that has yet to ship, was ordered on the 17th. Good thing I don't need any of it soon. That said, there's no real advantage to paying extra for the standard shipping to get an order here faster. The last time I tried that, they still sat on the order for a week before shipping.

Fuck me.

Rant begins.

I worked on a project a year ago, got back burnered because reasons. Got restarted at the beginning of the summer. Basically two things going on, the current data (basically everything we captured since last October) and the backlog (everything that happened before we started capturing the current data). My manager has been working since August to figure out how to handle the backlog. It all, current and backlog, needs to be done by Friday.

She calls me today at 4:00 to tell me she can't figure it out, so she needs me to own it. Three fucking days before implementation. But she knows I can do it.

She just knows I can do in three days what she couldn't in six weeks.

Again, fuck me.

But she didn't bring me in a month ago because reasons.

I'm seriously considering throwing this one and let them threaten to fire me.

Yeah, they still haven't shipped it. I don't need any of it urgently (or I would not have ordered from Amazon), but if it goes on much longer I am going to cancel most of it and order elsewhere.

OTOH, I recently ordered something from Home Depot that Amazon wouldn't ship because Alaska. Tracking says it started out in WA state, then went to Oregon, and is now making its way through California... :|

Just acquired a 98% rust free 1985 Toyota Celica GTS liftback rolling body shell. Guy was gutting it for an enduro car. Came with a zero miles freshly rebuilt engine & new stage2 clutch and fuel pump and a Kirkey racing seat.
I have the identical twin to this car behind my barn i bought 20 years ago wrecked. So i have every part to restore it.
Best part? Guy wanted it out of his garage so his wife could park in for winter...$500.
Coincidentally i just sold a Ford explorer parts truck for a $500 profit so it cost me nothing.

Time to ramble on about my nuts again.....

It's a serious mast year here. We have one *very* large bur(r) oak that is just outside our property line, in state land. We also have one black walnut on our lot, and three more just over the property line in our neighbor's yard with branches hanging over ours.

We've never seen that oak produce acorns before this year. Now it's going bonkers. The walnuts are also producing like mad.

Yesterday I had a pair of helpers each fill a 5 gallon bucket with acorns and walnuts. Was easy, despite only being able to get at a fraction of the goods. The oak because only a relatively small part of the canopy hangs over our lot, the majority is over heavy brush we don't want to mess with. Similar story with the 4 walnut trees- most of what they're dropping is in the neighbor's yard. (We haven't gone over to prowl for nuts because we haven't had a chance to ask yet. We know they would say yes, but they also know that we would always ask first. It's like that )

Just for kicks, my wife and I had a look at the forage. She pried a bunch of the acorns out of the caps (which on these is tricky) while I cleaned some walnuts. New process this year. I took them out on our patio, stomped them really hard and ground them underfoot to get most of the husk off, then scrubbed them with a stiff brush in a big bowl of water to get them the rest of the way clean. They're sitting on paper towels drying right now. (My hands are various shades of brown. Much darker at the extremities, like finger tips, like the 'point' of a Siamese cat.)

We each did about 3 dozen or so. That dropped the level in one of the buckets by about a third. Which caused the helpers to immediately go top off the bucket - took them only a few minutes. Scary.

I still have a couple dozen walnuts from last year. They've been sitting in a bowl in the kitchen for a year. Yesterday I ate one. Getting it open was brutal. Tasted like 'walnuts' (English) plus an extra bit of sweetness, and just a hint of apples. Slightly astringent/bitter aftertaste. So after sitting at room temp for an entire year, they don't seem to be rancid. I'm impressed.

I'm not a huge fan of nuts, but I do like the occasional walnut, pecan or hazelnut.

Oh, and these acorns are off the charts. The squirrels have been ignoring the walnuts to feast upon them, and still can't keep up. Inside their caps, the whole thing is nearly the size of a baseball. With the caps off, the acorns themselves are slightly larger than the walnuts. My wife said something about how, now it makes sense to her how in some places and times acorns were considered food (still some places now).

I found a pecan tree in a park a few weeks back and it seemed like it was producing a lot, but there's something wrong with it. When things 'ripened', the husks opened leaving the nuts exposed, the nuts were only the size of cashews at best, and the few I opened the nut halves inside were tiny and shriveled. Oh well.

Need to find some proper hickories.

Found out that we've got a rat eating our walnuts on the tree. Live trap has been secured and is set and baited in the back yard as I type this. Live trap because with dogs we can't use poison, and snap-traps are out since I'd just catch dog paws with those.

Ayup. Wife smeared the stuff on the actuator inside the trap, and I set it out in the corner of the yard. I'll have to check it before I let the dogs out, but expect it will likely have an occupant in the morning. Little bastards...

Imagine two working class guys from central England(Shopshire, to be exact) try to shoehorn in a celica awd drivetrain into an oginal (and thoroughly clapped out) mini. Now add in a does of Monty python and Benny hill, with an opening sequence that is clearly a nod to Police squad. One of their latest episodes is how to tig weld a coffe mug... :lol:

Spenser often had baked scrod at restaurants in the Spenser books. I was passing through Wilmington, MA (couldn't wait to get out of Boston), so I ordered some scrod, even though they spelled it "schrod". I liked it a lot. I'd get it again.

BTW- I'm in Lincoln, NH this week if anyone is nearby and interested in getting coffee.

It kind of makes me regret how thoroughly Yeager's beclowned himself in the past, because I watched a few of his recent videos, and he seems to be hitting them out of the park lately. I was able to watch the video he made inviting Antifa to training before Youtube pulled it down and it was pretty funny.

Hows that ISO 9001 working out for you?

I have a feeling NPR may be busy over the next few years.

I saw today that the first Playboy Playmate after Hef died will be a transgender "woman".

Sigh.

Okay, look. I'm sorry. I was disrespectful. I should have considered your feelings. In that light, I would like to express my sincerest condolences that your personal masturbation habits are not being personally catered to 24/7/365 in every piece of the mainstream anymore, a serious blow to alpha male tail-end Boomers everywhere. The last bastion of God-fearing heterosexual morality, Hugh Hefner, has passed, and with him, the dignity of a titty rag run by a man who regularly used his own personal power to all but physically force women to perform sex acts on each other while he got high and jerked off (at least, when he wasn't stopping just short of shoving Quaaludes down their throats), all the while styling himself as a civil libertarian and renaissance man.

My sympathies.

That said, print media is dying and Playboy has, like its founder, long since outlived its usefulness. If transwoman in a nudie mag bother you so much, google something else and you'll find something that perfectly caters to your fancy. In video format, no less. Often without a subscription fee.

I humbly suggest we let Playboy die with its robe-bedecked founder.

All he wrote was 'Sigh' for fucks sake.

Project less. Get off your little hobby horse.

Personally I don't care all that much what people use for fap fodder, so long as it involves strictly consenting adults.

It IS, however, a sad and somewhat irritating sign of the times, that a purveyor of pr0n has joined the long list of institutions that have chosen to play politics in the usual way, to borrow a phrase, roll left and die.

You often seem to have a very difficult time accepting this, but things existed before you did. There are people who remember things, and institutions that have traditions, that predate you. Playboy being one if them. This recent development is a sad descent from even their previous 'standards', and in fact represents a degradation, in a small way, of the world that used to exist, that people used to live in, before your arrival.

FWIW My former BIL went to collage with Hefner, and didn't think much of him. Evidently Hefner had a rag like Playboy in mind even way back then. Good business plan, so-so magazine.

I bought it for the articles. :roll:

I don't have a.dog in this hunt, the last issue of Playboy I bought featured a centerfold with pubic hair.

That said, the mag was.always notable for beautiful women, and many of us can recall when the standard was girl-next-door. So the magazine feminists love to hate has now.decided that XY means female if the person has had enough implants, injections and clipping.

I'm getting sick of hearing about Trump. Everywhere, everyone seems to be talking about him. Hating him. Loving him. Criticizing him. Blaming him. Celebrating his tweets. Excoriating his tweets.

Good Lord, isn't there anything else to talk about?

He's gotten inside nearly everyone's head space and that advertising would be priceless to achieve. There's a large portion of the population that practically think of nothing but trump. Can you imagine any way to do that for product placement with an unlimited budget?

The Democrats can't seem to get over him and how to get over on him, which is what is driving the noise. I'm just laying back in my recliner and enjoying the show. If this Russia atomic thing proves to be worthy of a couple of treason trials, it will have been all worth it. 8-)

Got to see piston-engined warbirds in action yesterday.

A local airport is home to both an EAA chapter and a wing of the CAF. They combine to host an annual event that features a B-25 and a TBM (GM-made Avenger torpedo bomber) dropping loads of pumpkins on a target. Big crowd pleaser. :)

The B-25 was always one of my favorite WW2 types. The sight, and the sound of one flying low over the crowd..... Yeah I had a good time.

Then you need to make to Dayton one year in April when the AF Museum hosts a Doolittle Raid commemorative. IIRC they've had up to a dozen or so B-25s perform a flyover in the past to celebrate their "F*** You, Strong Message To Follow" special delivery message to the Imperial General Staff.

I was at Selfridge back in 2008 or so and the airshow that year had a segment called "Mitchell madness". I remember it being 15 B-25s roaring by in formation several times.

Interesting. I read about something like that, but thought it was a one time only deal.

I tend to think Southwest Pacific low altitude brutality when I think B-25. Like the Battle of the Bismarck Sea (aka the day Goto Dengo lost the war - absolutely brilliant depiction of that event from the perspective of one particular Japanese soldier, in Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon) and barge busting.

Some of the low passes the pilot did were like mock strafing runs. Gave me goosebumps.
