  1. Fair enough. It was chilly (high 20s F) but not Canada cold and without that nasty white stuff much of the US and Canada has to deal with. My worry is with as mild of a winter we had I'm afraid spring will break early then snap into summer weather inside 30 days. I may be whining now about yard work, but at 85F+ and humid I'll really be pouring it on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thank you, the Advil has started to kick in and I am coming to my senses. I have been in a hell of a mood today, I was either going to rant about yard work or about fashion trends. Casual Friday has turned into stuff myself into skinny jeans with my belly hanging out day... There I go again with the negativity... :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Just a immature rant... Since my last woodworking project we decided to put in a play set for the kids. That turned into we should probably do some trimming to our overgrown landscaping and that turned into we should just rip it all out (20 years of growth) and start over. Then that turned into "gee now that the bushes are gone, the house sure could use a pressure washing..." and replant the grass...and gonna need about 200 bags of mulch...and "wouldn't it be nice if you could build a pergola above the deck..." Every weekend for the past 4 the side of my house looks like the below picture. I truly wish I lived in an area where rocks and decorative gravel was an acceptable landscaping choice... End rant.

    As much as I dislike the Manning family, you never saw them pull the crap that Cam does on the field. He could be a great one if he would just be humble and classy. 26 yo Cam has some growing up to do for sure, I was being sarcastic with the "hurtful" comment. After a couple beers I forget you can't hear the sarcastic inflection in my voice when reading a post. Why the dislike for the mannings? I've always had a high opinion of them. ...but if Peyton plugs Budweiser one more time as he is being interviewed I am going to start fantasizing about punching him in the face.

    That's very hurtful. Even though Cam can be a douche.[emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I knew someone was going to not be a fan, surprised it's the guy we call keggers. Not surprised Eric gave you the first like. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Who are you pulling for and what is your prediction? Panthers by 3points. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. are you a Bruin? I am and I have that same hat! Yessir, Class 96'! Through a circuitous route ended up in NC which turns out to be a pretty nice place to live (go panthers!). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Looks like a great match now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I'm planning next year to get an 8in jointer but considering passing on the Parallelogram beds, that cuts the price down to about $2k. There might be a thread in this forum somewhere about the difference between dovetail and parallel but based upon what little I have read, both are good with main difference ease of adjustability.

  17. Maybe he fell asleep midway through his post. Or, wait... Did Wisconsin decriminalize weed the first of the year?!?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I think it might be presumptuous to assume he is a crackhead, perhaps he is a marine biologist taking the crab out for a number 2. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Good recommendation, I have seen the movie, but this is definitely worth reading to get a more intimate picture of the problem solving and the science.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Haven't seen the film, but my BIL did, and said they cut a lot of good stuff to get the runtime down. True, movies hardly ever approximate the book, but this one was well done. Sometimes you are angry by the lack of heart achieved by a movie vs the book (world war z comes to mind). But I think some, while lacking the insight of inner thought achieved by written word, are still excellent. Dead Zone and Jurassic Park come to mind. That said, the Movie Lost World and the book didn't come close... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. Cool. C, which K book should I start with or are they all good? Kev, haven't been too much into the podcast thing to date, just search wood talk? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. I've got a a whirlwind of air travel ahead of me and there is only so much actual billable real work I can stand while trapped on an airplane. Looking for good inspirational woodworking books (or otherwise) all recommendations welcome. Already have Darrell Peart's book on G&G ordered, what else should I add to the list? Open to both instructional or philosophical (on any topic). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Tagging onto Shaney's post, Diresta has a cat that does some great bandsaw work, surely Barry won't be outdone by a cat! Merry Christmas!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. I got some WR 1838 Style White Corn for xmas, stuff is smooth as butter. I thought I liked the Double Oaked, but this stuff is sublime. People around me know they can't go wrong with a good bourbon as a gift! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
