  1. Dave, Thanks for the update, I guess that explains why the flying machine updates are missing..... Glad Frank was able to assist, he is a very talented guy. Your post reminded me of something I had not thought about lately. I had a baja years ago and experienced a strange occurrence as I was descending a trail coming down into Lake Isabella from the mountains. Much to my amazement I observed the wheel and tire from the front on the passenger side of the bug moving away from the vehicle at a good clip. Rolling down the trail just like a road runner or something it was. The bug was st
  2. Dave, That is an eye opening post! Lesson learned I reckon, how is the flying machine progressing? Stay healthy, Jeff
  3. Thankee for the good wishes guys, I hope you all are doing well and keeping an even strain on things! Jeff
  4. Thank you Skip, Great day, sun shining, kids are well so that is as good as it gets! Stay healthy my friend. Jeff

  8. Thats really cool Tom, look out bugs!
  9. Terry, Thank you for sharing your bird shots, and as Luke said the tempo is appreciated, not too fast and the pleasant moosic is relaxing. The shot of the raptor flying with a fish in its talons almost perfectly replicates a photo I got years ago of an Osprey flying over its nest with a fish in hand shot over the Sea of Cortez. Well, maybe not in it's hands exactly, but you know...... You have a beautiful back yard, I am glad to see you are doing well. Keep up the good work. Jeff
  10. Slim, In your initial post you asked, "How can people use anything for an excuse to riot, loot and burn down property that had nothing to do with anything?" In my experience people don't generally riot when their utility rates increase, or when their neighbor has a bbq and does not invite them to the party, or even when politicians are caught with their hand in the cookie jar.... This murder is an affront to the decency of all who have seen the video. Way past anything. It seems most of the posts have acknowledged the truth of each others position, the cop who kneeled for se
  11. SoCal, As Desertpilot mentioned Gorilla glue works for him, I have been using Gorilla wood glue on various non wood projects and found it to work well. If the surface to be bonded is smooth I rough it up with sandpaper and the bond is very strong. (Probably not the thing for assembling a fuselage tho...) I have also had good results using the tubes of construction adhesive from the big box stores, several brands available. Again surface prep. is important, scratch it up, dust off, apply glue and clamp or compress. Now if I could just get these fingers separated.... Have fun.
  12. Terry, That is a beautiful area, thanks for letting all of us go on a hike with you. Jeff
  13. Thanks for doing this Hermit, young people need to be exposed to mining and agriculture. Many of them don't have a clue where there food and Iphones come from..... Jeff
  14. Good evening all, Well, this is all getting much more understandable thanks to all of the well reasoned and nuanced contributions. Yes, a bit of sarcasm there, I know it when I speak it! Thank you Terry S. for your post, and thank you for volunteering, (is that how you spell volunteering?), as far as the comments regarding the post fromTerry S. as being uncaring about the plight of people of color or whatever the currently acceptable term is I think they are clearly un warranted. Please see the response from Terry S....... As for me, I know a number of health care people, nurses
  15. Tom, I was lucky to have caught it quickly and I was kind of aware of the possibility because it had happened before and not knowing better replaced it with copper again. Last time for that!
  16. Bob, I hope you are staying well in your beautiful state, and continuing to make cool critters. I am in California and like most of the world many things here have changed dramatically. I went to my friends restaurant today to join him for lunch, for the first time in a month. His place is gigantic, ten K sq. feet on two levels. They shut down weeks ago and let all of the hourly people go which was very tough and remained completely closed for a few weeks. About ten days ago they opened up to provide take out only using only salaried staff, the GM is taking orders and running f
  17. Nice job on the photos, and the gold ain't too shabby either. We are fortunate that most of our kind that roam around the hills are great people. Maybe three years ago I was ripping down Castle Hot Springs road in my hot rod turbo diesel powered Samurai when my oil pressure went to zero, I was lucky to have noticed it and shut it down. The crankcase had no oil showing on the dip stick and the cause of the crisis was the copper line from the back of the head through the fire wall and into the gauge... The copper had work hardened from vibration and snapped. I was standing there and a local
  18. BMc, Thank you for posting, wonderful photo, that is one of the things I enjoy most about Az. The stuff growing is amazing, I still remember several years ago I was in Gold Basin motoring along on my quad going down a wash and as I came around a bend and, WHAM, I was hit in the face with the most intense scent of sage, I think it was sage, and it was amazing yep it has been six or so years and I still remember it. That desert is a constant source of wonder..... Lizards, blooming cacti, snakes, rocks, lead deposits, space rocks, incredible sunsets, and sometimes golden rocks. Not to
  19. Well, the good news is the flowers are still beautiful and smell amazing, the California Poppys are ablaze on the hillsides and my dog seems comfortable. I am a very fortunate guy. Thankfully the kids and my friends are well and observing reasonable protocols. Did some painting today, had an emergency delivery of Modelo Especial, and fixed the swamp cooler. Thanks all for keeping us all informed, throw another log on the fire, it is a fine evening here. You guys stay safe. Jeff
  20. There is a lot of great information to be found here, thank you to members who have made the effort to research the subject and provided information to help others. Community.... Yep, regardless of the many disparate ideas and opinions posted everyone seems to be truly operating from an honest viewpoint. Kind of like a large family with vastly different personalities, education and life experience..... Sometimes keeping the chatter apolitical is a challenge but it seems to be working with a little help from the moderators. Thank you moderators, yours is a challenging task indeed!
  21. Amazing and inspiring story, thank you for posting it!
  22. Max, Good story, it reminded me of when I was a kid, and we were in Joshua Tree and my dad helped a guy with a mechanical problem of some kind, I don't remember what and the guy had us go to his mine some where in what is now the park. I was very young but fondly remember the giant rock forms and boulders, like a giants playground. Thanks for posting Max. Jeff
  23. Max, Yep, two thumbs for sure! Thank you. Keep em coming!!! Jeff
  24. Bill, Great story, it is nice to learn something daily, even about a headless screw in a shew. Thanks for sharing it.
