been out of circulation lately, just catching up. Monk, is that a new Triumph as your icon? If so, good call. Triumph man myself, a Storm and a T140 Bonny in the stable. Bonny needs major work, a side project I do when nothing else occupies my time. Been working on it (ok, I look at it and think I should do something about it) for the past 4 years. I grin every time a Harley rider admires my Storm.

I admire and respect foster parents. They open their homes and hearts to children in need, often for extended periods of time. It is not unheard of to discover foster parents adopting children that they have cared for. And for a large percentage of these children, a good foster parent is just what these kids need to grow up normal. That being said…..
There is no way in hell I would ever subject myself to government supervision of my home environment. To foster parents, I tip my hat to you for doing what I could never see myself doing.

it would appear the shark didn’t like the funk taste emanating from the board……
Mark 16:15 NIV
15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
That doesn't mean hide in a monastery navel gazing.

there are a lot of 9mm’s in the 1911 style…..Dan Wesson Guardian, several Kimber models, S&W 1911 Pro series, several Springfield models (Range Officer), Taurus PT 1911, Wilson Combat CQB, I’m sure there are others out there
what about these sororities on the Alabama campus? Sigma Lambda Gamma (Hispanics) or Alpha Kappa Alpha (blacks). Don’t see any white girls in those sororities, but that’s ok just as long as there aren’t any sororities with blond white girls, right?

I was an undergrad at UF in early 80s and had a student job working at the USDA Entomology lab on Archer Rd. Massive amounts of money was spent researching ways of controlling or eliminating fire ants…research that continues to this day.
One day I asked one of the researchers what was the best way to get rid of fire ants, thinking that there was some chemical or pesticide that was a magic bullet. He said the best way was boiling water, about 5 gallons poured onto a mound. Really.
He said it would kill ants on contact and seep into the mound and at least 5 gallons was needed to penetrate deep enough to collapse mound, also killing queen. I asked if this method was so good why didn’t the USDA just come out and say use this method..also saving millions in research. He said partly because research money is what makes the USDA and labs at schools like UF continue to exist. But the biggest reason he said was because there was no way in hell the USDA, a school like UF, or any researcher would EVER tell the idiots that make up the general public that the fix to the fire ant problem was to pour at least 5 gallons of BOILING water onto a mound. Could you just imagine the lawsuits because some moron burned himself? Using boiling water has been used for years by farmers or ranchers, but you have to be able to muscle 40-50lbs with ease to safely do it, usually a couple of guys doing it.
Best way is water, but Andro works almost as well and it’s definitely easier.
