  1. I used to trap and hunt when I was a younger man. The furs I sold and the carcass from the muskrats and raccoons I gave to some people at times who actually cooked and ate them. I tried it. Not to bad. My hunting was mainly rabbit and squirrel. Yes I cooked and ate them. Tasty when cooked in a cast iron skillet and fried in butter, after rolling the meat in flour.. I didn't ever hunt just to have a trophy mounted on a wall. It was for food and making money from the furs
  2. But Coss, I just finished fueling my Cessna and was hoping to meet you and Stick for some mutton stew.. 555
  3. I have read on Yahoo news. I know well vetted news.555 But one reports/ rumors is his sister in more ruthless than him. That yes she would take over. Then another report/ rumor is his half brother has taken control with the help of some Chinese forces.. Where is Dennis Rodman when we need him for the "true" facts...555
  4. Too me it's not the Republicans that are messing up our system. You have Democrats that have also tried and won pushing other funding into their favorite things. There were things funded, aka the Kennedy Center. What does that have to due with this made up crisis that both parties were trying to fund for relief. The stimulus checks are Not free money. This will apply to our 2020 taxes. Then giving 600 a week more over people's unemployment payments. That is stupid. I say that due to the fact now some people get more this route than the actual job pay they had prior. So why would they want to go back to work, when they get this amount for being unemployed. Will it help some people, yes.. great. But remember people need to work and make money to have a place to live and food on their plates . This is anywhere in the world. Not hand outs from the government's.. Both parties need to quit trying to see who can piss the strongest and farthest. The late senator Bryd was famous for those tricks when he was alive..Now Pelosi is trying to follow in his footsteps. Let's just open things up and hopefully the small business owners can overcome this and keep plugging along Panadolsandwich, thanks for the job you do. It has to be a tough job no matter where you are in the world.
  5. If they did proper reporting and not saying the 80 year old chain smoker who has had 3 heart attacks and been on oxygen tank for 2 years died of covid 19.. I believe Chocolate Steve has made a post about a death not related to this, but still labeled a covid 19 death..
  6. I am ready to get back to work. Sat 3 weeks waiting for decent work. I move heavy equipment etc. Took a machine to the port in Baltimore Md. The lot is filling up with stuff to go overseas. No boats at all in the bay or docks. Md has enacted a deal that you need to wear a face mask to go into any business. Really... The spot market rates are in the toilets so to speak. Too many trucks and not enough work. So how long we sit before our next load. Who knows. In a bright note, I got past the not enough info on the stimulus check. Fingers crossed. My book keeper applied for us in payroll protection plan. Good luck with that we are not a big operation and not a publicly traded company.. Not asking for alot, as there are plenty of catches in the program. Aka fine print...
  7. Mine is still no info available
  8. Heck I can't even find info on my check status. The website is so f'ed up Mainly due to the fact I end up paying into each year. No refund.
  9. Bill, We pay enough every year in taxes We pay a tax on gas at the pumps. I drive a truck/ Lorry for you guys on the other side of the pond. Problem is our great local/ state leaders, take those funds and spend the funds on other projects.
  10. Not me. Got too many here in the States in the trucking industry. Cut throat Ruthless bastards they are...
  11. Steve, hate to say this, but I was at a Walmart in Ontario,Or Friday evening. Toilet paper sold out. They had a sign saying you had to go to isle 21. Which is shoe dept, they had a line setup there. You then get in line and end up in layaway to get toilet paper. Sold out at 6:30pm. Trk gets in around 4pm they say. They get 6 pallets each day. Sold out quickly. They had a limit person. I'm like really. Oh went to the rice isle. Older Hispanic lady was grabbing all the bags left. These were little 1 pound bags. There was 1 5 pound bag left. Walmart brand Jasmine rice. Ok I'll get it for backup as wife still had some left. The old lady went to grab it also. I said really... She said something to her daughter I believe it was in Spanish,while looking at me.. She then left it. People are going nuts here..
  12. Steve, I'll smoke what you are smoking, but I am subject to random drug tests... 555
  13. Baby wipes are running low in some places yes.
  14. My wife travels with me. Being the superstitious Thai woman she is, it's been a few fun weeks It hasn't fully dawned on her to where we are going. We spent the last few days in south Texas moving oil field equipment around.. The people are stocking up on about everything you can think of Now off to Alabama to ld our military piece Monday. Yea Ha....
  15. Time to thin the herd. People brought this all on their own Remember those signs. Don't Feed the animals
  16. It's getting crazy here in the States Rubbing alcohol is running out in stores Some places are rationing water. Toilet paper is out in many stores. Events are being canceled. My work as a heavy haul driver now sucks. Nobody wants to ship or receive any machines. Oh but the military is still moving things Guess who volunteered to take a piece to Wa state.. lol I ain't scared
  17. Quite normal. I have seen bent ones in different airlines shops. Only 2 with cracked welds. Never seen a severe weld failure one though, but it has been several years since I have moved any. The rate for hauling them has gotten to cheap for the headaches lding and unloading them
  18. Coss, over time the pulling and jerking can cause metal fatigue. Plus using the wrong tow bar on too big of plane, etc
  19. Damm, and I thought I was big. Me I'm fluffy but they are Damm..according to the comic Fluffy. Check him out on YouTube They need to get a grip that they are way to big. Can we say cargo hold. 555
  20. Very sad situation. I have hauled the Tug units before to various airports in the US. I do know that there are different size tow bars for the planes Also they are to be inspected prior to each use. I wonder if they grabbed the wrong one or if there was a weld failure at one of the ends. Where the attachment hook is connected to the tube/ bar. I have been told, if the tow bar even has the slightest bend they have to be scrapped out.
  21. No the Electoral College was put in place so all the States would have a fair say in the voting.. Just because a certain party loses the Election, they get butt hurt and cry, we need to change this. No we don't It keeps things on a level playing field
  22. That probably sent alot of them to the temple asking Buddha for help..555 I've been in hail storms before The first time my Thai wife heard and seen one, she was freaking out. I then explained them to her.
