  1. Should have used some tie wraps on the downspout cause if is slips to the ground then someone could trip on it and hurt themselves.
  2. Congratulations to both of you and best wishes. Your Stella will probably look like my 5 yr old Riley, below, when she grows up. Unfortunately I didn't get Riley until she was 1 yr old and missed that first puppy year but I rescued her and she most definitely rescued me and these last 4 years have been great. Like Will Rogers said, "if dogs don't go to heaven when they die, then I want to go where they go.".
  3. I have 2 pair of Irish Setter boots that I like. I bird hunt so I am doing a lot of walking and not sitting. Both pair are waterproof. The first pair I got leaked during the 2nd year out and they were replaced with no questions asked. They were replaced with a slightly upgraded pair that are these, Vaptrek 8" 400gram insulated. So when I wanted a warmer pair I bought these, Elk Tracker 10" 800 gram insulated.
  4. Fished the Manasquan Inlet jetty as a kid during the mid to late 50's and you could go all the way to the end with not too much trouble, however when they put those dolosse (https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a241585.pdf) in it completely changed the nature of the inlet for the fishermen making it extremely slippery with the smooth surfaces and difficult to get around on them unlike when there were just the rocks. And, in some cases the drops between them were quite dangerous. Good I guess from the structural perspective but took a great recreational area and ruined it due to the now limited and dangerous access.
  5. Best wishes and time to make a trip to Raymour & Flanigan for a new chair for yourself !
  6. I replaced a pump on mine years ago and it has worked fine since with no issues. Cheaper than a new one. One thing I remember reading was when you turn it off press the handle to let water to continue thru the unit so that it cools down the pump which extends it life.
  7. I used to think I was just a regular person, but I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist. I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist. I am heterosexual, which now makes me a homophobe. I've worked mostly non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business. I was christened by my parents, which now labels me as an infidel. I think, and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the mainstream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary. I am proud of my U.S. heritage, which makes me a xenophobe. I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist. I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist. I (and most of the folks I know), acquired a fair education without student loans and have very little or no debt, which makes me some kind of an odd underachiever. I believe in the defense and protection of my country and I honor those who served in the Armed Forces, which now makes me a right wing-militant. Funny ...it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years! As if all this wasn’t enough to deal with.. Now I’m not even sure which restroom to go into!
  8. Trump ends US China trade war; Swaps Hong Kong for California in unprecedented deal ! ! ! Washington DC—After months of growing trade tensions between the US and China leading to an impending global recession, along with mounting strife in China’s Hong Kong province prompting dissidents to wave American flags, US President Donald Trump has negotiated quite possibly the biggest deal of his life. The US will trade the entire state of California for Hong Kong in a flat exchange. “Basically everyone in California wants to be Commies and everyone in Hong Kong wants to be American, so we did what we call a win-win and traded the two in a tremendous deal,” Trump said in a press conference. Markets responded with a complete turnaround from recent declines and posted record numbers. Californians and Hong Kongers were dancing in their respective streets—Californians happy about the 1-child-only policy and being run by the Communist Party – finally – and Hong Kong residents happy about being part of the free world once again. This is an amazing day. "The Donald" has done it again!
  9. Cooler full of PORK ROLL , egg & cheese on hard roll with some salt, pepper & ketchup and a portable radio to listen to the ball game !
  10. A very sad commentary on our country and particularly where we are headed when these are the kinds people who step forward to say they have the wisdom and experience to lead us and its more troubling as to how many follow and applaud and get in line to follow them. I'm a bit over the hill and won't be around or if I am I'll be drooling on my plaid food stained flannel shirt, so I don't think the direction our country is headed will affect me very much but I feel very sorry for my children and grandchildren that they won't have the life that I have been very fortunate to have.
