    I'll let you guess. Anyone recognize the apparatus or what is going on here?:
    That looks like this stuff my son and I made as an experiment.. JR

    • I applied lipstick to a pig today. As you know my auction Baldor shorted out the armature this week. I had these work rests that I had made up for the Baldor. So I adapted them to my Cummings bench grinder. Like I said kinda like putting lipstick on a pig

      • This is my boat.It was the tail end of a cyclone and was bad luck that the photo was taken during a lull. The waves were massive. I only paddled out because I was drunk and frustrated at looking at the surf for three days without fishing.

        I got lucky and managed to get out.I caught a barracuda in the first ten strokes and then paddled further out. I started panicking when I realized the current was heavy strong. Then I went two sticks away and had a double up on sailfish.The adrenaline kicked in and I started relaxing a bit and sobered up real fast.I release all my sailfish so I let the one go but this one died on me so I brought it back for the locals to eat.

        You dont need a big boat to have alot of fun.I am more responsible now as I have got older. I even use a life jacket these days .

          Here is our fishing yacht in "fighting lady yellow" Awlgrip

          Boats are at the lodge. Those are just to get there. We could have flown in a float plane, but this way is pretty fun too. It's a 40km trail ride into the lodge, Half of it is pretty nice old logging roads, and the last half is pretty rough. Then a 45min boat ride down to the end of the lake to the outpost cabin where we're staying for 4 days. The main lake is a great rainbow, lake, and brook trout fishery, but there there are a whole bunch of back lakes with a world class brook trout population to explore.


          We did this trip 2 years ago, and we made the decision to come back again as it's such an awesome spot.

          I've never done any offshore fishing. Would love to go sometime, but I'm not a huge fan of big water. We're pretty spoiled here in Ontario with so many great freshwater lakes to explore.

            Nice fish. I've fished out of a kayak a couple times and enjoyed it but never landed anything THAT big from one though just some 2-4lbs small mouth bass, and pike.

            I started wearing a life jacket about 7/8 years ago. Always thought of them more as a seat cushion....but having kids changed my perspective on them.

                • Finally got my roof repair finished today. It's not perfect, but good enough. I am paying him $1000 for the entire job, which included major repairs on the NW corner and the south side peak, as well as patches on a few spots damaged by fallen limbs. The one contractor who actually came out and gave me an estimate quoted about $2600 for just the damaged corner.





                  I also did a lot of electrical work, cleaned up and organized. Found these boxes of stuff. First box has some thermal wire strippers and a switchboard meter which may be a synchroscope. Not sure what the other thing is:


                  Lots of hardware:

                    Looks fine as long as it keeps the weather out and prevents more deterioration.

                      Humility and people skills aren't your strong points are they?

                      I'm sure you have some good qualities, perhaps display those instead.

                        No This is mozambique.The sharks are smaller here.But I had a bad encounter with a massive Tiger shark that scared the hell out of me. I was being trailed by one that wouldnt leave me alone and I had to bang him on the head with my paddle a couple of times. It made me realize that if he wanted to pluck me off the ski it would be real easy.

                            Yes sir. The Tiger Shark is considered more cunning than the White. JR

                            • Mowed the lawn 1st time this year.

                              My ****ty old abused lawnmower never likes waking up from winter sleep. I couldn't even pull the cord it was stuck in place, had to remove the top and use a board to forced the motor to cycle a few times. I don't think it's good for the motor, I dunno what the reason was, rust on the inside of the cylinder, or old gasoline varnished to the insides, made a racket that went away as I got it running. Think it has less power than it used to. I hate working on engines but I think I need to be kinder to it. Perhaps open it up and see if there's anything obvious to my non-mechanics eyes.

                              It started easy using Aspen fuel though, that stuff is magic. I'll switch to regular gas later, and back to aspen when autumn comes so the system is free of regular gas for winter again. I should have done that a long time ago, it doesn't go old and varnish surfaces or anything like that.
