    I need some help with a meat grinder

    Dang Red, I hope you get this thing running and it works well. Plan on starting with something rather small and not a whole hog or elk or anything like that. It'd suck to get started and have the motor die out for good. That is unless you have an opportunity to retrofit another motor onto the unit. Looks like it's going to be fun anyhow.

    You can look up Globe 519 slicer lubricant. You use it for the entire slicer. The unit may be gummed up with grease and fat from food previously sliced depending on how much care was given and the particular manufacturer & model you have now. What manufacturer/model did you get from the club? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. This was a good show to watch. He called them out and at first they tried to blow him off, then the settlement came out against them making them pay 3.3 million USD to a once Muslim extremist that now runs Quilliam and teaches people about combating Muslim extremism. That's when the FBI had to back paddle their response to Tucker and reevaluate working with hate groups like the SPLC. Tucker will be following up on this to make sure they do the right thing.

    FAA Hiring Practices / Eek!

    My cousin and his wife are both operators. They both came out of the Air Force and took jobs back years ago waiting for jobs to open up and finally they were hired, but this was back in the early 2000's, before O done screwed it all up with his ya'll ain't White and can't make it in College or the Military, so we'll give you a job as a FAA Operator (TCO). Luckily for my cousin they got hooked up with some nice gig's and are exactly where they wanted to be to raised a family, out of the big city and into a smaller airport, with considerably less daily traffic. Maybe 50-100k people a day. Nice, easy job and a slow growing area in the middle of the country where they love having their family. Contrast this to what Tucker Carlson has shown about the idiots their hiring these days and it it completely idiotic. How did we ever let these people get control over such critical processes. THEY ARE TOO STUPID FOR THIS!!!! We MUST do something. I don't know about you guys, but I love to travel with my wife and plan on see some more of the U.S. and visiting our grandkids in N.H. I hate the thought of idiots directing our Pilots and landing our planes without any science or math ability. Does anyone have any ideas about how we can PISS OFF A FEW CONGRESSMEN/WOMEN or SENATOR'S or rather SCARE THEM ONTO OUR SIDE, and make them change this crap. I'm will to make a few phone calls or do whatever we need to do to get their attention. This is idiotic if you want to continue to fly in the skies above the USA.

    San Antonio in July

    Yeah, it's definitely going to be predictably HOT and HUMID. Unless you get lucky and the Gods are with you. As Rampy said, the Alamo is a must. That is the most historical item that people see of course. There is also the San Antonio Mission National Historical Park and the San Fernando de Bexar Cathedral you can check out that are historical as well. For me, if I was going to stay there, I would plan on staying at one of the hotels on the Riverwalk. I personally like the Marriott Riverwalk. It's really nice and very comfortable, can be a little pricey, but it's worth the location and comfort. Plus you'll be right there on the Riverwalk. The Riverwalk is the biggest attraction for visitors in San Antonio. Plan on 2 evenings just wondering around and walking into a couple of the nightlife bars and restaurants. There's plenty of music and people all around. In the evening's you should try to take one of the boats that cruise through the Riverwalk that offer dinner while you cruise the Riverwalk. It's really nice and fun to do if you like to people watch and enjoy a great meal. During the day, you can get a pass that allows you to hop on them and get off at a different location, then get back on and off at a different place. Bouncing around the Riverwalk. You can also check out The Magicians Agency for a cool evening of magic. It's a great show and it's fun for families or just a date. The show is really fun and they make it exciting to watch. Hope this helps give you an idea of some things to do. There are other hotels on the Riverwalk, so if you belong to another loyalty program you'll probably have one of their hotels there for you like Marriott, which I belong to. Good luck, and tell your daughter thank you so much for her service to our country. God Bless her.

    Good Morning!

    Ireland anyone?

    Yeah no kids, I agree. Time for mom and dad to have fun and enjoy themselves. The motorcycle tour sounds cool, but you would definitely need appropriate clothing for that. Ireland is beautiful, "because" it does get some rain. LOL @kobelup feel free to send me a pm if you want to see any photos or have any questions. Glad to help. The hard part is losing 1 day each way of traveling to and from, so I understand why you need to make the most of your vacation time. Pub crawls are fun, just depends on how much time you have to spend doing it. There is so much to see and do that you will need/want to go back. That I guarantee. Cheers....

    Ireland anyone?

    We took a tour in October of 2015 thru Collette tours, did 10 or so days (we added a couple of days) all over southern Ireland. You will really enjoy it. Look up the tour (shades of Ireland) on their website at http://www.gocollette.com/en We started at a castle outside of Dublin and went to several cities including Cork, Limerick, Killarney, saw the Ring of Kerry, the Cliffs of Moher (which are absolutely incredible and something everyone should see) as well as the Muckross House (absolutely amazingly beautiful), the city of Waterford was a delight (we took the tour of the Waterford Crystal factory, the Kilbeggan distillery (I believe the oldest distillery in Ireland) and so many other great stops and visits. I just can't say enough. You will have a wonderful time. If you get a chance, check out the Gap of Dunloe, they have a great shop of Irish Clothing and artwork that you can shop for duty free and have shipped directly to you house, arriving a week or two after you get back home. There was so many wonderful things and memories that we remember and brought back from that trip that we plan to go back and basically do it again, probably on our own this time. I would recommend looking at the itinerary from the Shades of Ireland tour for places to possibly visit and see. You don't have to take the tour if you don't want, but we took it because they have a person that travels with you that specializes as your guide the entire trip that is able to share a ton of information everywhere you go. Our guide was a Anthropologist that worked on historical dig sites there in Ireland and was is a published Professor, but enjoys doing these periodic tours for fun and meeting people from all over. My wife is from Boston and is a second generation on both sides of her family from Ireland, but her family is from the north west area. We will also visit that area as well when we go back next year. You won't go wrong taking a trip to Ireland. Get your Guiness Pouring Certificate at the brewery. LOL You'll know what I mean once you take the tour. Have fun and let me know if you have any other questions that I may be able to help with. Cheers....
  11. Good, one less nut case for us to deal with. Had he been able to pull it off, all hell would have been called by the Anti 2nd Amendment and Gun Control groups. It would have given more fodder to their cause to crush our rights as American Citizens. Glad they got him and people were watching out for call signs and/or signals that people with mental problems have and show on a daily basis. Hopefully now, ICE has flagged him and can make sure that he can never be allowed in the U.S. again.

    I was pulled over by the cops today....

    There are some good cops out there for sure. Glad you only got a warning and got a chance to see how the car drove. That's awesome. Congrats!!!!

    very cool. On my way....990+ to go....LOL
  14. Hey, it's just as bad here it Kommiefornia. We can't even vote these idiots out of office to change the laws back to sanity or at least some reason of sanity. Not all this compliance legal mumbo jumbo that prevents law abiding citizens from enjoying and being free American's. The 80% percent gig has been or become a big deal here since all the laws being implemented and them wanting to have them registered if you have all the features and such. Most of our stores still have plenty of inventory but I don't know the number's like MontanaLon is speaking to in his post. Those are crazy. I can imagine going crazy trying to forecast inventory and such with all this AWB talk and not knowing what the governments both state and federal will be doing with this HOT AW topic.

    National Geographic Channel / Chain of Command

    I can not and will not add to your post, other than honest positive feedback. I can only add that they honestly do bring an honest picture of the military and what it was like back then during all the turmoil. They capture a great amount of honor and integrity in the information that they show regarding the certain military units and the brotherhood within the various militarary units.
