    Like all reality shows, all made-up drama. Life provides all the drama we need to keep life interesting, why add to it?

    Depending on thickness, most any course slower cutting saw will do. Be sure to use a drop cloth to contain and collect the chips.

    mold maker replied to a thread Lighting in a shop in Our Town
    Don't forget the old adage, If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. I bought the cheap Walmart LEDs and they were done in less than a month. They were originally bright and refreshing but quickly started flickering and failed. I had...

    Are the CS reps paying more attention to the bean counters than the good name built by years of good will? Seems to be happening all over. New owners demand profits and add bean counters to make it happen. I spent 39 years in the plastics ind. ...

    mold maker replied to a thread Birds vs Patio windows in Our Town
    If your windows include the E coating and it's dark inside, they reflect like mirrors. The birds pay no attention to youngsters playing less than 3 feet away, unless there is sudden movement. I feed them over 70# of seed every year and the...

    mold maker replied to a thread Birds vs Patio windows in Our Town
    I had a three sided glass porch, and dead birds were common. We added on to the house which eliminated one glass wall and the bird problem was eliminated. Seems the birds were trying to fly through the porch without seeing the glass. Now I have a...

    Don't sell the youngsters short. Remember the antics we pulled at their age? If we had, had the dope, sex, and violence, common at every corner like they do, would we have been any different? I'm proud of today's youth and take every opportunity...

    I'm thankful I don't have to log the miles I once considered normal. At 41 mpg I'd have run dry almost every day. In front of one station the cement surface wore (over 38 years) to show the gravel in it.
