  1. Old power dam nearby. Now a fisherman’s park.
  2. https://en.newsner.com/family/cashier-mocks-older-woman-store-grandmothers-comeback-leaves-speechless/ “The green thing...”
  3. Try, just try, to find out the total carbon footprints of proposed new green technologies vs the old ungreen ones they are supposed to replace. Consider the 60 watt incandescent lightbulb vs the equivalent light output twisty florescent bulb or LED bulb. From extraction to processing of raw materials to final disposition. Not just electricity consumed per hour of illumination but total carbon footprint. And by the way, don’t forget to properly dispose of hazardous waste.

  5. And the left escalator is most frequently tge “down” one.
  6. I worked for Price Waterhouse back in the 1960s. Making partner even then was - as one would expect - extremely rare. So you are exceptional. Congratulations!
  7. Was thinking of that. Would provide a measure of satisfaction but likely would not get my money back.
  8. “Those were the days, my friend. We thought they would never end.” But they did...
  9. Found to my surprise that “Softly...” and “Unchained Melody” by Elvis were opposite sides of a vinyl “single” when released. And this posting should move the thread back onto the first page...

    Trains

    Replacing steel tires on steam locomotive drivers. This is a necessary maintenance activity for the locomotives. A number of shops do this with some regularity. Don’t know the circumstances of the large driver, but the small drivers on jack stands belong to one of the Shay locomotives at Cass WV.
  11. Recent sunset photographed from my daughter’s driveway.
  12. I’ve not shot the 199. The action seemed adequately tight and locked up appropriately when dry firing (using plastic snap caps). My sister in law has shot it and likes it. We had a “this is how it works” session, once again with snap caps, and she can operate it fine. Her shooting skills are in the novice range. She lives near an indoor range where women shoot free on Mondays, except for the $1.00 cost of the target. Hope she practices dry firing and gun handling, and actual range shooting, enough to become comfortable with the sport. And you are correct about the cost being in the center fire handgun range.
  13. Some help, although this is single/double whereas the 199 is single action only.
