Why did you use galvanized instead of copper at the redwood post?

If it were my neighborhood, it would be because the copper would get stolen within 24 hours.:(

ah....That's a really dang good question. Because it's outside?

I guess the easy reason is the underground line is all polypipe which uses barbed fittings. They have adapters to MIP threads so i didn't think about it I just grabbed galv pipe. I could have easily gone with a copper fitting and used the 5 feet of 3/4" copper i have sitting around.

That said I think long term strength with the galv will probably be better. I wont' have to worry about hitting it with a shovel.

I'm ok with ground turkey when it can be hidden in a hotdish or casserole. Turkey sausages are ok accepting them for what they are. Burgers should be beef, venison, elk, or bison.

Next step is veggie burgers. :ph34r:

I've wanted to try one of those impossible burgers or beyond meat burgers. The idea is intriguing but the cost isn't there yet. I can get ground beef for really cheap, when i mix it 50/50 with the deer i shoot it's almost free.

It’s probably the BK effect. I’ve had a few of those and they varied quite a bit, probably depending on the location and cook. The Impossible and Beyond “meats” can be quite good when done right. I actually very rarely eat meat, and there are some pretty good alternatives out there. However, there are also some really bad alternatives that give the rest a bad rep.

Not trying to brag but I got to ride the struggle train tonight. Was trying to make a quick simple mitered picture frame and I swear my brain wasn’t firing on all cylinders. Finally got it glued up and will finish it up this weekend. 

Maybe a good night’s sleep will fix me.

I have been there, but over time I have come to recognize the symptoms and now I am pretty quick to jump of, even if it is still moving.  I have learned that by doing this I save on lumber.
