    My old scoutmaster was a Korea vet. The leader who taught the Explorer post I belonged to lost his eyesight to a Chinese grenade in Korea. He was proficient in Morse code, and helped us all get our amateur radio licenses. There has been some...

    Put some in a pop bottle with the lid on tight. It might surprise you and become carbonated. Pop bottles can be tested for pressure by squeezing. Wayne

    Thanks for the inspiration, Mr. Wolf. I didn't really expect much this year, but I'm hopeful that next year will have an abundant harvest. I plan to mulch heavily to get the plants through winter. Wayne

    When I was in graduate school, and lived in the student housing, there was a large mulberry tree that grew wild in the alley behind the building. I had read in a book that wine could be made from mulberries, and being a starving student I decided...

    In 1968, while on an outing with the Explorer Scouts, a group of us were held at gunpoint by a deranged rancher, armed with a 38 special. He fired a warning shot into the door of a 68 Ford Torino, and it penetrated diagonally, coming to rest next...

    I love those old Lyman and Ideal one cavity molds. They are slow, but they just work. Also, I am finding that when the mold gets too hot, the lead can take a while to cool and contract, which makes them stick in the cavity. Any more, I cool...

    I recently had to pull some 38 lead WCs that had a firm crimp applied. When they couldn't be budged by the inertia puller, I took them one at a time, and tapped lightly around the mouth with a small hammer. The top of the RCBS press served as the...
