  1. Spot price is now over $1600. Are people so worried about the economy that the US Dollar is now headed for the Critical Care ward? Mike
  2. Cottonwood Cove was a special place to go when I was young. Starting back about 1972 we would drop the boat in at Cottonwood, load it up with a weeks worth of camping gear and then make our way upriver (uplake, actually) about 5 miles and camp out in the wilds. We would beach the boat way up in one of the deep coves, and make camp. We went for a week every Easter and Thanksgiving for many years, and even kept a boat in Searchlight. Haven't been there since 1987, but I've heard it's changed a great deal. That was a good sized rattler, sure would have got my attention, too Mike
  3. A young Muslim kid can't find his mother in the supermarket. The store attendant says 'What does your mother look like?' The kid says “How should I know?” :ph34r2: :hahaha: :ph34r2:
  4. If you are detecting in open fields and a T-storm blows in, odds are you would be heading for the car before the rain arrived. Best suggestion is don't walk in a lightning storm with the detector propped over your shoulder or held up in the air. Lightning usually takes the fastest way to ground...just make sure that's not through you.. Mike
  5. You're not alone John. At 52 I have learned to tolerate it all, but will never accept it. I tolerate rattlesnakes, too, but at least they perform a service by removing rodents from the scene. If God had intended men to be women and women to be men He would have provided us with two sets of "goodies". He didn't. :twocents: Mike
  6. Here's a couple more for ya Terry:
  7. Rained all morning, and topped out at 68º today, but we're hoping for 75º tomorrow. Hottest I've ever been was 123º in Searchlight Nev. back about '84. We were camping upriver from Cottonwood Cove, and it was so hot we broke camp and headed off to the Searchlight Nugget. Back then it was about the only place to go with air conditioning and where we could stay for awhile, but it was a drive up from Cottonwood. Mike
  8. President Obama decrees that the Rules of Golf must be changed. New Federal Golf Rules Since these new golf rules will be in effect in April of 2011, please share with fellow golfers. New Federal Government Golf Rules President BHO has recently appointed a Golf Czar and major rule changes in the game of golf will become effective in April 2011. This is only a preview as the complete rule book (expect 2000 pages) is being rewritten as we speak. Here are a few of the changes. Golfers with handicaps: - below 10 will have their green fees increased by 35%. - between 11 and 18 will see no increase in green fees. - above 18 will get a $20 check each time they play. The term "gimmie" will be changed to "entitlement" and will be used as follows: - handicaps below 10, no entitlements. - handicaps from 11 to 17, entitlements for putter length putts. - handicaps above 18, if your ball is on green, no need to putt, just pick it up. These entitlements are intended to bring about fairness and, most importantly, equality in scoring. In addition, a Player will be limited to a maximum of one birdie or six pars in any given 18-hole round. Any excess must be given to those fellow players who have not yet scored a birdie or par. Only after all players have received a birdie or par from the player actually making the birdie or par, can that player begin to count his pars and birdies again. The current USGA handicap system will be used for the above purposes, but the term "net score" will be available only for scoring those players with handicaps of 18 and above. This is intended to "re-distribute" the success of winning by making sure that in every competition, the above 18 handicap players will post only "net score" against every other player's gross score. These new Rules are intended to CHANGE the game of golf. Golf must be about Fairness. It should have nothing to do with ability, hard work, practice,, and responsibility. This is the "Right thing to do." ********************************
  9. There once was a scoundrel named Weiner Who had a very perverted demeanor Forced from the Hill For acting like Bill Now Congress is one wiener leaner
  10. Nice video's Ron...thanks for sharing! Mike
  11. Those look great Frank.. I am really looking forward to the time when I can afford to spend a couple weeks down in Arizona and Nevada chasing nuggets and having a chance to buy (and use) one of your dry washers. No place for that up here in the cold and damp, but it sure looks like a fun way to spend a day. Mike
  12. For her teeth or yours? :zapped:
  13. Great pics Don..WOW..that is one big lizard! Bit of checking says that the images are genuine but they were taken separately. Then someone put them together and created the story about Texas Power & Light. Don't really care who took the pics, I hate rattlers and oversized lizards equally. If a tornado came by I think it could suck you out of that pipe just like a soda through a straw, but, it's probably better than being out in the open when that twister rolls by! Mike
  14. Without question, it is a... Mike
  15. Sorry to hear about your grandson Don, as I can certainly relate to being near deaf..it stinks. Many kids (and adults) get ear infections because they get a little itch, and then grab something to reach in there and scratch it with. Most time we get away with this, but on occasion we scratch too hard, and then add in that an ear canal is a warm, moist place and infection just blossoms. Kids need to be taught that they should never put anything in their ear smaller than their elbow... Let him use a full head-set, as believe it or not the sound waves hitting the mastoid bone on the deaf side will actually travel via vibration through to the functioning ear. It ain't "stereo", but when you are straining for every "peep" of sound this adds a % or 2, and can make a difference. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bone_Anchored_Hearing_Aid As he gets older he might also be a candidate for a "Baja" style hearing aid. There are also some newer technologies that use the bone-conduction process without the obviousness of the Baja system. Mike
