Ah ... Can't place it right now - who was it that said it's the little stuff that counts?

HA!

Can't seem to place it, either. . . . but it makes sense!

Actually his strength was not in the gun, but in his intellect. A knight without armor. The knight - "It's an attack piece, the most versatile on the board. It can move eight different ways, over barriers, and [is] always unexpected."

Note he says "versatile" not powerful. Everybody knows, or will know, the queen is the most powerful. And, this show was way too advanced for the late fifties.

In another episode from the first season, "The Singer", Hey Boy responds to a stranger who addresses him with "Hey you!" by annoyedly responding that it is "Hey Boy", and not "Hey you".

Forgot about "Hey Girl" too.

Some of the newer stuff is Almond wood - like about a ton of it. I'll probably cook with most of that.

HA!

This old thread. . . perfect timing. . . I just finished stocking the shop/gym with firewood for the winter. Life Fitness seems to think that machine needs to be warmer than 31 below zero to operate properly!

TGT, if you are not being sarcastic in posting that I take back all the bad things I've said about you over the years. Well, maybe not everything, but there is much to choose from.


Because if you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life doing things completely wasting your time. You'll be doing things you don't like doing in order to go on living that is to go on doing things you don't like doing. Which is stupid! Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way.


F-uckin-xactly.

I've completely changed carriers at about ten year intervals, because it wasn't that much fun any more and time to explore a new challenge.

My problem with the "progressives" is that they seek to demonize those that pursue their dreams and happen to produce something that enough other people also see as valuable and become wealthy in the process.

All these pictures and comments remind me of two things I loved about living in the wood in the upper midwest.

1. Bottom trimming the fir stands. Every winter, we'd get out the pole saws, warm sorel boots, heavy irish sweaters, a large thermos of coffee and brandy, and cut those branches off up to 18'. Stack 'em and move on to the next stand. After a heavy snowfall, it'd be quiet and spacious like a cathedral in the stands. A great way to spend an afternoon with folks you love. Wait until someone was right under one of the pines and hit it with a pole, and the snow would come down all over them. :-) Then run.

2. We replaced the oil-burning furnace for the wood furnace (central heating). Other than having to get up on the middle of the night at some point to throw logs into it and cleaning it soundly once a year, the wood burning furnace was the best system. It provided the most consistent and stable heat, and we got to use all of the fallen from the penultimate year.

Miss both those out here in the Bay Area.

I am actually for nuclear energy. From the Sun. But I burn wood that I either buy or have harvested from our small plot of land. Peat is 'big' here in Ireland, but peat is not sustainable. Bad choice nowadays. And coal as well.

Actually, I was not being flippant. I used to be totally, totally, against nuclear power. But if we can harness it (and dispose of it) in a safe, VERY SAFE, way, it seems the way of the future.

Unless somebody knows where I can obtain dilithium crystals.
