    Do you have faith? Eventually all things will end. At that time all the wealth, food, and planning in the world wont prevent the inevitable. Infinity is just a dream of short sited people. Every morning I awake on the green side (while it still...

    I only had occasion to spank our Daughter twice and in her words, the idea that she had broken the trust between us was lots worse than the licks. My Son, on the other hand, required regular applications with the rod of wisdom. It seemed as if no...

    If your knowledge of collector coins is lacking, stay away. Common silver rounds and bars are rarely faked, and the value is tied to spot price. It still pays to stick with recognized mints. Everyone brings up the SHTF and while it isn't...

    SAFE is just a feeling like the pride you get for the money you spent. It has very little to do with keeping determined thieves from your valuables. The cheapest locked box will keep curious little fingers away. Good insurance is money better...

    The idea that that amount of energy can flow through a tiny copper wire at that speed is mind-boggling, but it's a fact we can't deny. While I understand the energy isn't contained within the wire, it follows its path like a train and its tracks.

    The Med flat rate box will hold more the 70lbs of ingots, but 70lbs is the maximum USPS will allow you to ship in one. With tight fitting ingots, you can fit 20 lbs of ingots in a small flat rate box, and you can fit 6 small flat rate boxes in a...

    Tip the mixer to the point that lead ALMOST exits with the water. The mixer action will release most of the clay and the outflow of water will carry it away. I used this method on several tons of range scrap in dense NC red clay. The resulting...

    I'll be 67 this month. I started drinking coffee at 11. Can drink it all day, from sunup to sundown. Any way, lip scalding hot to iced, but DON'T put no sugar in it, burnt or a day old, if it's there I'll drink it. I really like coffee.
