Fried over 1000 pieces of fish tonight!
Unfortunately profits were very low this year! I say every year we should skip the fish fry and pass a hat to the firefighters we all throw in 20 bucks, take the night off we'd make more money!

Bud the Cowboy

A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.

The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes, Ray Ban® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?"

Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, why not?"

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook computer, connects it to his AT&T iPhone® cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop® and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany ...

Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot® that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL® database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry® and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the cowboy and says, "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."

"That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says Bud.

He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

Then Bud says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?"

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?"

"You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government", says Bud.

"Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"

"No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep.”

“Now give me back my dog.”

After 20 years of marriage, a couple was lying in bed one evening, when the wife felt her husband begin to fondle her in ways he hadn't in quite some time.

It almost tickled as his fingers started at her neck, and then began moving down past the small of her back.

He then caressed her shoulders and neck, slowly worked his hand down over her breasts, stopping just over her lower stomach.

He then proceeded to place his hand on her left inner arm, caressed past the side of her breast again, working down her side, passed gently over her buttock and down her leg to her calf. Then, he proceeded up her inner thigh, stopping just at the uppermost portion of her leg. He continued in the same manner on her right side, then suddenly stopped, rolled over and started to watch the tv.

As she had become quite aroused by this caressing, she asked in a loving voice, 'That was wonderful. Why did you stop?'

He said, 'I found the remote'.

It is a shame that volunteer firefighters ave to spend so much time fundraising just to put out fires for the people of the community. Yet our government seems to have money for everything else! I know to close to politics so I will stop :giveup

Oh jeez… not another dude so scared of walking around America, that he wheres a loaded man purse to Wallymart for protection.

If you're so afraid of being a victim to gun violence, why not move to a country where there are mostly Gazelles grazing in the wind of peaceful bliss, like Japan or Britian.

That way you don't need to walk around America, loaded up for the next encounter, that will more likely result in you shooting yourself, a loved one , some innocent bystander, or maybe your friend at the shooting range.

Unless you're a gang member and forgot to tell us… you don't need a gun for protection. America's not that scary, trust me, I've lived here for 46 gunless years, and I'm just fine.

Who ever thought a bunch of kids getting shot would end up being the 'right to bear arms' message of the century? Truly a bit sick on both sides. Another false dichotomy for us to 'debate'. Leopards and Gazelles, ha ha ha funny shit, and just as useless.

I have much more respect for gun owners who say "man, I just like guns, period. I like to shoot shit, and that's it!"

That said, if you want a gun (and you do still have that right), there should be an insurance policy that goes with it. After all, we are capitalists here… Let's make some money hey? The policy will go to pay for the deaths and injuries, that are a byproduct of ones WANT to bear arms… Since we have the greatest armed forces protecting the U.S. and the world, there is no longer the 'need' for a well armed militia at home… just the WANT. There is an insurance policy on my car, my house, my plumbing company, etc. Let's just be honest, an fair. "You wanna play, you gotta pay!!!"

We tax and insure everything that is bad for us, or kills people in an unexpected or accidental way, why not guns?

Then we can tell the liberals and progressives to "f-off, I paid my policy this month, you ain't banning shit!!!" They will of course go along with it, because the one thing they like more than 'equal rights' for everyone, is more money to spend on stupid shit!

sorry if I offend anyone... it's nothing personal, just my opinion.

The great thing about our country is, if you want to walk around without a gun you can. If I want to have one in my pocket all the time I can for now. If I want to protect my family and myself I can for now.
I don't carry a firearm because I am afraid, I don't carry because I am paranoid. I don't purchase vehicle insurance after the accident or house insurance after the fire. Most folks that legally carry a firearm hope and pray to never need to use it. Mine has never came out of my pocket yet for anything other than cleaning, target practice or changing clothes.

I also think this thread is flirting on a full blown political discussion so I will stop there

Posted: Sun Mar 31, 2013 9:39 am 

I like my Raptor aluminum gradient level...

That's the one I was referring to.

Greenlee offers the same style, but with better quality magnets, check your local electrical supply.

Just about everything Greenlee makes is top quality, good call.

Is it AC or DC that only runs downhill?

Or am I missing something here? Why would an electrician need a grade level?

Because if you put your conduit next to my perfectly graded 1/8" per foot sewer you want it to match. :ha :ha

Ahhh It is quiet in the house again...
The kids and grandkids have all left...

Had a good time with good food...
Miss Piggy's shank was indeed as tasty as I had imagined...

My son in law brought over some Magic Hat Pistil & Harpoon UFO White...

It was fun... But I'm enjoying the Quiet right now...

Ahh quiet in our house too! Except we left the 5 year old at grandmas for a bit :lol: :lol: A little thanks for the sugar she gave her :twisted:

Posted: Sun Mar 31, 2013 7:47 pm 

I couldn't get by without a corded sawzall! I would have to have 15 batteries and chargers for some of the sawzall work I do! I usually keep 2 corded sawsall's on the truck for when we get into heavy continuous cutting so I can switch them out when they are to hot to hold! Got a good apprentice now and give him my 2nd one but he is usually around when we do the heavy cutting!
What would you be cutting that you do that much sawzall cutting? :shock:

We have an account where we cut out old 5" and 6" galvanized roof leaders as they need it. Can't use a torch or grinder due to the early 1900 wood construction! Can't use a portaband in most places due to them being next to the beams in the building!

Posted: Sun Mar 31, 2013 9:58 pm 

I used to sit in an F-111 aircraft at night and talk on the CB Radio in the plane...

It was a nice radio, it had 40 channels and a bunch more higher and lower, it had 150 watts AM and if I went on the upper or, lower sidebands it had 450 watts.... :shock:
Wow... My ssb unit had20 watts on AM, and I thought that was big
Lets just say I could sit in the jet on the flight line at Mt Home AFB, Idaho and routinely talk to Hickam AFB, Hawaii, Elmendorf AFB, Alaska or, Clark AB, Philippines, and none of the local CB traffic could talk over me...
:ha :ha :ha :ha :ha

I know a few guys who could have talked over you! There was a few dedicated individuals out there running some big linear amps, whenever the FCC wasn't in town. Some of em could fire up and transmit on every drive thru in town. LOL Of course that was probably 20 years after you were in the seat of that airplane so maybe not back then!
