Re: DT's log

7/17/18-Tuesday Been doing grease the groove pullups for the last couple weeks, as my rebuilt shoulder/bicep is healing. Doc said it will take a year. Started with half-pullups, then a week ago, I surprised myself and did one full-wt. pullup to get my chin above the bar. Since then been doing two to...

Re: Kavananananaugh: Does he get confirmed?

If it was with a Hilton Honors American Express card and he paid the balance off immediately, he might have said "Hey everybody, give me your cash and I'll buy the tickets and get a shit-ton of free nights in a Hilton property to boot." If he carried a balance? Serious WTF on the judge's judgement....

My Self Reliance on Youtube

I'm currently engrossed in the saga of Shawn James building a log cabin in the Canadian wilderness totally by hand. This may not be for everyone, but the scenery and craftsmanship of using all hand tools appeals to me. I have some mild similarity with him(very mild) in that ~35 years ago, I designed...

Re: Kavananananaugh: Does he get confirmed?

I would have said a solid "yes" as well until I heard about the 60-200K debt in National's tickets that mysteriously disappeared. I've been thinking the same. How does someone making 220K a year, spend 200K on National's tickets? Seems like a serious lack of judgement. Will be interesting to hear h...

Re: "Won't You Be My Neighbor?"

Fred Rogers and Arnold Palmer were high school classmates in 1945 Latrobe, Pa. This has absolutely nothing to do with the movie.

Re: Death Knell of the EU?

My old neighbors were Brits and they told me that one of the main reasons they left for the US in the late 70's was the big influx of Muslims into their country, primarily "Paki's". I didn't give it much thought back then. EU has been on borrowed time.

Re: So what do you fuckers think about HBO's "Westworld"?

My son convinced me to give it a try. Just finished the whole 1st season and loved it. I'm a big fan of westerns and sci-fi, plus lots of gratuitous sex and nudity to compliment the story. Ready to start season 2.

Damn. I hope your granddaughter didn't witness too much of it.
No, she didn't. Her mom got her quickly into the house and all she saw were police and emerg. vehicles and personnel walking around. I was still pre-occupied and didn't see her until my wife put her into the car to go to school.

Already went at Christmas and it felt very good. Keep swinging the bell and get back into hiking shape. We've got a lot o...

Re: Is anyone watching "The Americans"?

I am fascinated to see how they close it out. No idea of course, but a sick ending that would make sense would be, sadly, Stan getting whacked in some final confrontation, the heat on Elizabeth & Phillip cooling off, Soviet Union collapses, and the Jensons (do I have their last name right?) without...

In Australia sports betting is legal and every sporting event is interrupted by several adverts of this kind.

Any gamblers on IGX?

Maybe a few people here bet on sports? My gut says probably very few. Anyway, the Supreme Court struck down a law prohibiting sports betting. It's now up to the states on how to implement. A few like Utah, will probably never do it. I also heard that Disney is lobbying Florida to delay it for as lon...
