  1. Mom and Baby out for a walk in a concept Gas Mask system for both. Circa WWII. Seems a bit impractical.
  2. resume[ ri-zoom] verb (used with object) [re·sumed, re·sum·ing.] 1. to take up or go on with again after interruption; continue: to resume a journey. synonyms abstract, biography, digest, epitome, review, sum, summary, synopsis, carry on, continue That's a nice Audio Technician C.V. I'm curious, what's your day job? (didn't see it in your profile)
  3. Put into service in 1974, expected to last through 2028. One of my favorite aircraft. Considered less glamorous than high-speed fighters by some, the pilot straddles a 30mm rotary cannon which presents a completely different sense of power. Supersonic and slow speed, the in-flight attitude of the hog is unlike any other. Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II (a.k.a. Warthog). In formation
  4. I'm jealous. All I find at Garage Sales and Flea Markets is overpriced vinyl with mold and mildew. I need to find a better neighborhood and nicer Flea Market. That's an awesome score, Kevin.
  5. OK, so if that is how it looks above ground...adding just one more line to the extreme where you can see it, In my neck of the woods, it's all underground. In 14 years, JULI has come out dozens of times to "mark underground lines" for cable-layers to "add one more". They spray-paint half my front yard marking something I envision looks like what's hanging off that pole, plus gas lines! Inquiring minds ask: when they pull up this horizontal boring machine, to "add the next line," How come it's not grabbing a rats-nest of what's already under there? I can't even plant flowers without worr
  6. Welcome to the forum. That C-1 is like "iron", it will last for ever.
  7. Thursday[ thurz-dey, -dee] noun 1. the fifth day of the week, following Wednesday. Abbreviation: Th., Thur., Thurs. Two pictures of the recent moons Wednesday AM, about 5:30 CST, looking west. The red eclipse (taken with my smart phone....) Wednesday evening, looking East, about 8:00PM CST framed by pink clouds and tall spruce trees.
  8. "Well, la-dee-fricken-da! Pretty soon you'll find yourself 35 years old, eating a steady diet of government cheese, thrice divorced, and living in a van down by the river!" Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker (Chris Farley)
  9. As long as we're telling stories..., my wife had one in her 7th month while carrying my daughter. Ultrasound was not an option, for the reasons Dano pointed out - the baby would have shut down. In hindsight, the Dr. identified that it was too much TUMS in her diet. TUMS were recommended for indigestion, stomach cramps and charlie-horse-cramping she had bad. All that anomalous increased calcium in her diet, (what TUMS are made of) created the stone. Needless to say, she said the baby was a cake-walk, compared to passing the stone. Wisdom to pass on to the young members having a family
  10. Calcite crystals - making up a calcific kidney stone. I hope to avoid the "golf ball"... Kidney stones are made of salts and minerals in the urine that stick together to form small "pebbles." They can be as small as grains of sand or as large as golf balls. They may stay in your kidneys or travel out of your body through the urinary tract .
  11. That's an awesome display of data. As a Bond fan, that's cool. Thank you !
  12. Fifty seven Chevy..., Bel Air, I think.
  13. Got my hands on this today. MASSIVE multi-dipolar system. Do you know what it is?
  14. The metal studs here in the states (where I have lived), like that which Z posted, is generally not used for anything load-bearing. Most stick-built homes around here use wood, so that all internal walls can be load-bearing and complement the structural and shear characteristics that weather and environment here imposes (wind, storms, humidity, arid, - pests, and such.) In commercial use, metal is easy, quick, and fits between structural levels built with concrete and steel. It's easy and cheaper for an building owner to re-arrange when a tenant rotates in and out of a space than wood. an
  15. Rod's avatar has me reliving the movie. Loved it when it came out, still think it's great - lots of wisdom. I hope Rod is enjoying them too.
