  1. https://fireball.amsmeteors.org/members/imo_view/event/2020/795

    Reported around 720 am on Sunday morn. Over 3 on Richter scale + a sonic boom.

    Supposedly  had a green glow indicating nickel.

    I clicked on the KML FILE(above link,top righthand corner and was greeted with a maze of lines(sjghtings) in the Phoenix valley.

    Supposed "geometric impact  point"  near Wikieup. How "they" narrowed it down to that area has me :89:

    Local paper https://www.abc15.com/news/region-northern-az/prescott/meteorite-gold-rush-after-meteor-falls-over-prescott

  2. Ok, I  misread/assumed you had  to go to UCLA,  but I guess you found a willing local.

    Los Angeles is the pits, (no reference to gooey La Brea).

    Rest easy, and thanks for  sharing... I had an inguinal hernia  repaired 23 years back with polyester mesh, so far so good.

  3. We are also pulling cash out to do home improvements.

     Get your docs in  a row ,,, 2 yrs tax records, recent bank statements, W2's,, recent paystubs, investments, insurance statements of coverage, etc.,,,,,,,,then line up a couple local providers and a couple more not so local.

    Get the ball rolling so they pull credit reports simultaneously and provide you with official loan estimates.

    Then play them off one another.  I was able to knock off $5000 in closing costs by making them sweat over more competitive  loan estimates.

    Dont allow them to pull credit reports until they talk rates with you.

    Same goes for a home appraisal...not until you  decide on a provider should you take that step.

    Take note of what they say regarding rates and closing costs vs what loan estimate says in writing.

    I  couldn't  get Quicken to talk rates at all without  pulling credit. I hung up.

    Loan  "Cheepo" could not match, in writing, what they were telling me over the phone. Not at first... they did wise up, but weren't  competitive  until I twisted their arm with a better offer.

    But then I prospected:brows: another company that was just as "hungry" for my business and, being local, eliminated dancing around a fax machine or emailing photos of doc's.

    BNC Nat'l Bank was in the running, as was Paramount Mort, but neither is local to us.

    Wow! Now that is really cool. I wonder, would you be willing to make a ring from a meteorite I found? Thanks for putting up the video, it was fascinating and original.

    Sure, if I had the meteorite, the machinery, and the skill to do all that's shown in the vid.:).. It all looks pretty straight forward, doesn't it.

    I like the  small " ring chuck" he made.

    For now, I'll stick with making a cab every so often in the Palomar Gem lap shop.

    I've been chased around the truck a few times by range cows.  Dang things get uppity some times.  One stomped my Gold Magic to death .  Well actually Ran over it trying to get me. 

    Sounds like a " cull" to me. The  few ranchers I know will shoot a critter like that.

    We have a grazing lease agreement with a rancher. On the few occasions  that we can watch "COW TV" live, on the set, everyone of the beeves in earshot  of my melancholy tune ,or stones throw, scampers, including the herd bullI (wish I was as endowed). He looks to be four feet wide and very heavy.

    I first thought I was looking at udders.

    I was wrong.

    I apologize. I did not mean to inadvertently  imply sex in this post.

    There are equal odds that  a  convent could be in Bob's future:WOW:

  7. Forest roomba: take a cylinder 8 feet wide and 2 in diameter, cover it with big carbide teeth and spin @ 2000 rPM or so. Mount on an articulating arm. Install on a 13 ton tracked vehicle... search forester mulcher... FECON

    Couple that  with "feller bunchers" to drop trees for harvest ,and areas open to the public to harvest dead and downed wood, and you will have much less flammable  areas

  8. Metal prices are self-correcting, somewhat, overtime, as rising prices bring more production/ supply into the market to handle increasing demand.

    To be sure, there are idled mines with stockpiles of ore awaiting processing if only they could increase their margin.  Either prices for metal go up, or processing costs go down due to lower energy costs will increase margin.

    Note: my first sentence that I stated "somewhat"...
