    After taking the screens off 3 windows to discourage squirrels from my bird feeder this Spring, one learned to play acrobat and do a flip under the gutter and land on the feeder. It's so comical, I just fill the feeder half way and enjoy his...

    mold maker replied to a thread Fast food tipping?? in Our Town
    A tip is supposed to be a personal "Thank You" for above and beyond service. I grew up in an era when 10% was a good tip. If the service you are tipping is the same, why do they expect a higher percent in a tip? The food/hotel price has increased...

    Unless you've experienced that level of chronic pain, you can't imagine the need. I passed a 5X7 mm kidney stone and had 9 teeth pulled at one setting without anything but regular ibuprofen. That said, the constant pain in my lower back is another...

    According to serial number 38088 it shows production 1963. I thought it was stainless but looks like a satin nickel finish. Not sure if I should run full house loads continuously through it. I may be mistaken but better safe than sorry. I shot a few...

    Lyman's cast bullet book lists a number of powders for a 190gr that all get into the 2300 - 2400fps range, with 5744 being listed as the most accurate. That powder seems to show good results in quite a few cartridges/cast bullet loads and the...

    Look under the front leveling foot on the washer. The mold might be what fixed the washer. After all, you left it on the top for him to use.
