  1. Trump to Declare National Emergency Today

    There was a situation where construction people were trained to use the double filter masks (think Breaking Bad) A problem happened when the masks were not being used correctly even after training. Those masks were abandoned in most cases and replaced with the simple ones we see being used...
  2. Trump to Declare National Emergency Today

    With no political intent on my end your not far off. Politicizing most any position has been the method of choice for many in the US from at least the early 90's. A lot of legit arguments have de-volved into trash talk for position. I hope the world doesn't follow. Germany has shown solidarity...

    If dreams were thunder And lighting was desire This ol' house would have burned down a long time ago............ John Prine Angel From Montgomery. for Bonnie Raitt
  4. Road Trip! Illinois to Arizona. Suggestions appreciated

    Best bet is to look patriotic. I have my USAF hat I put on my dash. Military plates Etc. These guys deal with some questionable characters at times so cut them some slack. Don't be too friendly. Don't drive too slow or fast. No selfies with officers. Don't tell them cop jokes. What has worked...
  5. Road Trip! Illinois to Arizona. Suggestions appreciated

    People sometimes take Rt 66 (I-40) There are many places where you can get off the Interstate and take the Mother Road for awhile. New Mexico is hardly populated. I've never been bothered when I've gone this route. I used to find abandoned houses etc. but lately many have chain link around...
  6. college vs. Trade

    If you do something for the money you might be selling out. Thing is money is just a way of keeping score for some. I owned an Hvac contracting business before retiring. Many of the trades people don't belong there. Many just fell into the job. Many have little mechanical aptitude. When I...
  7. college vs. Trade

    Follow your passion and you'll never work. Going and getting a degree won't serve you well w/o purpose. Too many students are too young or unconscious to know. Too many people in the trades don't belong because they have no aptitude for the work. So that means a plan. A person can connect their...
  8. Trump to Declare National Emergency Today

    Stalls are an amazing experience. Being weightless it's like you can kiss the sky.
  9. Educate us all, what was consider valuables to the early settlers

    I'm just guessing but I would think there was a lot of bartering. Farther away from cities especially. In the Westward expansion people often left big things behind like furniture. They took smaller things they valued. Later in the 20th century in CA, great collectable glass etc. could be ez...
  10. Moderator please respond

    Right Capn. New Mexico magazine has a page at the back called "One of our 50 is missing". A bunch didn't do well in geography class. Being told stuff like this is common. We sometimes need to lead with our Zip code rather than our State. When in the military I did a few tours in England. Great...
  11. Moderator please respond

    At least you won't need to deal with a pesky notice that someone else has your handle. Howdy from the Great State of New Mexico, USA. No not Mexico!! New Mexico. Between Texas and AZ. Where the road runner and coyote live. Where Bugs Bunny should have turned left. I often have out of state...
  12. Pics of the rainwater system

    Some states don't allow harvesting rain water. CA and CO are two. I always thought what ever was or lands on your land was yours. Someone in Spain claims ownership of the minerals under my land. Not sure how justified that is. How did the King of Spain grant himself ownership. If a state...
  13. Is "Injun" offensive to you?

    Montana Jim, I don't know your nationality but I'm sure there are other names for it you might have a problem with. Sometimes people try to change history by re-inventing meanings of words. Like "Red neck". It was a derogatory term until a country song was recorded saying "Red neck" was just a...
  14. anyone know if those tiny little wipes

    If you want to kill something, use bleach. Other than that it's probably more of a feel good moment. Washing hands properly takes time. In the ER my wife said the ABC's (in normal speech)to know how long to wash. The wipes and the rest of sanitizers don't ring with confidence. Just under finger...
