Pulling the trigger isn't the issue...it's dealing with the aftermath. In my CCW class, we had about an hour devoted to the topic. The person teaching that section is a clinical psychologist who used to counsel LAPD officers after they were involved in shooting incidents. It was very informative.
The problem with having all of your guns stored in a "secured" container is that IT IS NOT AVAILABLE WHEN YOU NEED IT! If someone is trying to do you harm, they are NOT going to wait while you retrieve your gun so that you can protect yourself.
Got the butternut and Kabocha squashes that we roasted last week peeled, cut up, and into gallon-sized Ziploc bags (2 of butternut squash, 1 of Kabocha) and into the freezer. The "peelings" from the squashes went to the turkey and chickens, who consider it quite the treat.
Yeah, let's say there is a coyote in my yard. I wish there was. I would try to befriend it. Especially if it were a female and could have pups next Spring. If that were possible I would attempt to crossbreed one of the pups with a breed of dog as a hunting dog. Not sure which breed of dog I would c...
4 quart jars of my homemade spaghetti sauce.
Canned 4 quarts (plus 1 pint left over for DD) of spaghetti sauce; got the first batch of butternut squash "peeled" and cut up, then into gallon-sized Ziploc bags; cut and "de-gutted" the rest of the butternut squash and 1/2 of the Kabocha squash (all we had room for in the oven)...
In our area, they have a program called Produce on Wheels Without Waste (PowWow). They come once a month, on the third Saturday (other weeks, they go to other communities in the county.) You get about 60 lbs of produce for a $10 donation. What produce they bring varies throughout the season. So, DD ...
Latest count is 73 dead, hundreds injured. Who knows how many of the injured will not survive. Maybe we should outlaw trucks so that things like this don't happen again.....
Another guy almost got killed...ran his car head-on into a tree while playing this stupid game.
Got a notification about this at work today. DoD is treating it as viable, and sent us all (military, DoD civilians, and contractor staff) a warning to steer clear of the areas where "events" are planned to be held.
I've tried to plant avocados here before...they've all died once temps dipped. Even the ones rated down to 20 degrees. Of course, it does NOT help that we've had the occasional "dip" down to 17 degrees in winter. (Even when daytime temps are in the 50s-60s) I DO plan on doing up a TALL gre...
Got 6 more trees planted this morning (the nectarine, peach, and apricots) before taking the car into town and having a tow hitch and wiring harness mounted. Then, on the way home, stopped off and picked up another peach tree and an avocado tree (for inside daughter's house.)
Got 10 more trees planted this evening after dinner...2 sweet cherry, 3 apple, 1 pear, 2 almond, and 2 plum. Still need to plant the nectarine, peach, and apricot trees, and get a couple more pecans and some "tart" cherries, as well as some pistachio (IF I can find some)
Picked up 3 more trees for the orchard, and 2 additional 660 ft. rolls of "poly-wire" for the "portable corral," Today, stayed home from work due to an upset stomach since yesterday afternoon (going to work while fighting the "urge to regurge" just was NOT an appealing ...
ENOUGH already! Because this thread has devolved into a bigoted, rant, it is being LOCKED, the offensive posts removed, and SOMEONE is going on a "vacation."
Sorry I didn't get to this before...been busy.
