I was so excited to click on this thread.  I bought 4 bags of mandarin oranges yesterday and was seeking recipes for them.

Got anything good Bier?

Anyway. That duck is pretty cool.

I was down by 50 heading into a Sunday night game against my BIL in 2002.  

He was done and I had Shaun Alexander.  

We were at our local bar playing poker as we watched Shaun rack up over 200 yds of offense and 5 TDs against the Vikes.  I think Shaun ended up with 53 or 54 points that night.  

That game ended up being the difference between our teams making the playoffs.  Hes still pissed about it.

#6369575 Best song opening

Posted by vuduchile on 05 December 2018 - 10:27 AM

Oh.......
Yeah, I knew the song was a remake but didn't know it was the Kinks.
So Eruption is a stand alone that they just added to the other song? Is there more to Eruption? I'll go look.

Eruption is Eddie Van Halen doing a guitar solo with Alex on the drums. 

 

On the record, there's very little pause between the ending of that solo and the beginning of You Really Got Me, so radio stations often played the two songs together. There are a few other rock songs like that.  Queen's We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions is one that comes to mind. 

 

Eddie has done some expanded versions of Eruption in concert, but the original is what everyone knows best.

Cowboys remaining schedule is light. They should win the division at 3-1 even if the Eagles win tonight and somehow beat the Cowboys next week. I dont think they make much noise in the playoffs though without either a better QB or serious improvement at OL and receiver.


Im just going with the ole get to the playoffs where anything can happen plan.

What is your opinion on the Kirkwood pushoff?

Missed call.  Gift TD, but it happens.  

Saints shouldnt have even had the ball there.


#6364879 Whats up with the caravan?

Posted by vuduchile on 28 November 2018 - 07:59 AM

The hardest working and most loyal install crew
I ever had were 2 guys from Honduras.   They were with me for 3 years.

They used to tell me about all the lawlessness.   in their country.  The stories were really astounding.  Rape, murder, armed robbery, and car jacking, were a part of their daily lives.  They talked about how the families theyd left behind lived in fear for their lives.   They said most of the young men get into crime pretty early on.  The way they described it sounded like a modern day Wild West where you couldnt trust anyone and were constantly looking over your shoulder.  

The lead guy ended up going back to Honduras to settle his familys affairs after his father was shot during a dispute about a cow. He was gone for over a year.  His helper got a job at an RV factory and when the lead guy returned, he got a job there too.  Theyre  still working there today.  

I have no doubt there are some decent, hardworking men in that caravan who could contribute to our society if legally given the chance.  But I dont believe they represent the majority.

Those are cool.  Nice work.  

Theres a whole lot of manual labor type sh!t  I hate and will hire out, but I enjoy carpentry and wood working, and want to make sure my sons learn those skills.

Ages of kids?


9 and 11.

My wife and kids dont believe me when I tell them my friends and I built a three story tree house from scrap lumber when we were their age.  

And we did it all with hammers, nails and a couple hand saws.  

That third level wasnt all that stable, and was more of a deck since it had no walls.  We only went up there if we were feeling brave and there was no wind.  


#6363096 What brand of power tools do you prefer ?

Posted by vuduchile on 24 November 2018 - 07:13 PM

I have mostly Dewalt now, with a few specialty tools from Bosch and others.

Ive never had any problems with the Dewalts.  I really like the drills, and the table and miter saws.

Dewalt cordless combo kits are usually priced well around this time of year.

Ive also has some Milwaukee stuff in the past and wasnt too happy with it.   The Rigid stuff I had was ok I guess.  

Ive also had a set of cheap Porter Cable nail guns that came with a pancake compressor for about 15 years, and theyre still going strong.  

My sons and I just completed a little carpentry project this weekend when they got to use some of the power tools for the first time.  

They did all the math, figured out all the cuts and did most of the work.  Much better than spending the weekend playing video games.
