    The "proper" number of wrinkles is the number necessary to put the bit into the proper location.

    Another way to reduce the risk of fence injuries is mowing practice.

    We mow both sides of a fence as short as the mower can make it. We try to keep the fence lines clean with RoundUp. This year...

    Buddhists in Myanmar don't always share that "kind and gentle nature" it would seem.

    The arbitrary rejection of non-hazardous practices solely for some set of "personal" reasons can be harmless or...

    Interesting. I've heard of this before. Any recommendations for "quick and dirty" reading to explain the basics?

    It's sort of like watching a slow motion car wreck; you know what's going to happen, that it's going to be bad, but you can't turn away. ;(

    Well, at least they haven't issued Winchester 73s, Colt...

    I guess I fear ignorance as it is the mother of zealots.

    I fear zealots, too.

    Generally speaking the "late model, gently used" truck will be the better buy as first year depreciation has been paid for by somebody else. BUT, when the dealer offers a rebate plus 0% for 60 mo....

    Flash44 called it. Inadequate saddle fit is the most likely problem. You can "fix" the problem with many of the suggestions but you've not "solved" the problem. And, as you "fix" the problem you...

    If I were to be in the market for a "work" truck I would seriously consider buying a cab and chassis and having a small flatbed put on. I replaced our standard bed with an 8' aluminum flatbed after...

    There's nothing wrong with asking questions. That's how we learn.

    But there's a difference in asking a question and putting a question mark at the end of a declarative sentence. That latter...

    Call the FAA and make the report. Without "N" numbers or some other ID there's not much they can do.

    Good advice, here. :)

    For a winter run I'd definitely pick I-10 over I-40. I live 5 miles off I-40 in East TN. Our weather can be "interesting" in the winter months.

    I-20 might be an...

    For a personal horse, Yes. The story of the injury would interest me but I'd likely take a very careful look at the scar and how it might have gotten there. Might make some difference in what I...

    I think the price difference is based on the fact that Chevy is a "personal" truck and GMC is "professional grade." At least that's what I guess from the advertising! :)

    I've got a 2008 Chevey...

    The retrospectoscope never lies. People who own them lie frequently!!! :)

    The true value of anything is what the willing but compelled* seller will take from a willing but compelled buyer.

    A clean, cash offer usually means an offer at the low end of market value. The...

    No, I think nhwr is quite correct. Maliki wanted us out so he could carry out his own agenda of "shiitification" of the entire government. Obama wanted a campaign issue. It was the confluence of...

    If you want a real LQ (not a "weekender") then you don't want a Class B motorhome. They are not much more than full sized vans with some amenities.

    A class C, on the other hand, is a real...

    Excuse me?

    First you say "Syria would have likely never happened if not for Iraq." So Assad would have been their George Washington if we hadn't invaded Iraq? Exactly how do we come to that...

    Bush Senior was all for regime change but his coalition partners and the UN were not. It would be well to remember that at this time a huge percentage of the U.N. member states were governed by...

    You're partially correct. They can't control all flows of emotion. They can, however, develop strategies for dealing with them.

    This is a forum that grows from a equine based group. Is there...

    East TN is much like some PNW areas, in that it's rocky, not flat, and we get 50" of rain per year. This colors some of my comments. ;)

    You've had a lot of good advice so far. You'll need a...
