    There is always that quote that I have attributes to Einstein:

    I watched one episode and have it recorded. I agree that it is similar to Warehouse 13.

    Agreed. I go directly to the shops and I get high quality for great prices. I even get fully custom items - if I can explain or show them what I want they will make it.

    Most of the Amish leather workers in my area use machine stitching. The sewing machines are powered by a generator and these are Amish from very conservative communities. They also work with nylon...

    If you trap and neuter him he might end up with you anyway. I have one now that I trapped and neutered. He was truly feral, but he finally got friendly and is now a house cat that mostly gets along...

    I'm also sick of the mud.

    This also depends on the cat. I have a cat now that was completely feral when I rented the barn he was living at. He is now, completely by his choice, a friendly house cat.

    If a snowmageddon, hits then keeping things cold or frozen isn't an issue - just use that giant cold storage mother nature has conveniently provided.

    I could go a few weeks with what I have.

    Back in the 80s I had a TB made that we took in for xrays. She had chips in her left ankle and right knee, all too old for surgery. The vets and students thought she should have been very lame based...

    None for me over all kinds of trails with a variety of horses. They can get hot, slip, and get stuff caught under them causing rubs.

    Dollar store mug with a couple of lottery tickets. Just a point to avoid scented stuff unless you know the person - Scented candles, soaps etc. give me a pounding headache.

    Actually for Pre-Calc and Calc a calculator is not really needed if the students have some understanding of how a graph is related to a particular equation. They use so many exact numbers and...

    It was mentioned earlier, but you can make a useable hockey rink with 2x4s and plastic sheeting. Just keep flooding it until you build up the ice. For maintenance, sweep and add more water.
