Re: Is there really a mystery?

Being retired military - I follow some other (military) sources. For one, the Kurds are not "allies" - they are "partners" - the Turks are actual "allies" via a written NATO agreement. We have had bases (and nuclear weapons) in Turkey for decades. Once they decided they we going to attack the YPG a...

Re: Is there really a mystery?

It is no mystery to me. Trump withheld the information because he acts like a petulant child who is vindictive. The true security risk is Trump. The whole operation occurred in spite of Trump, not because of him. It almost never happened due to the abrupt pullout. He sold out our Kurdish allies, to ...

Re: Shell Art Part 2

I weighed it at 13.5 #'s so not too bad. The light and frame are very light. Not sure about the acrylic stepping stones, but seems doable. Google shows some stuff. https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GGRV_enUS751US751&sxsrf=ACYBGNSoKTX8hyBSCqkxek95nL__z9uRjQ:1572356411219&q=acrylic+stepping+stones+...

Re: I wonder why?

I think congress is finally doing their job. Holding another branch of government accountable, you know, like the constitution says. It is a shame it took such low hanging fruit in order to get going on it. It will take years to dig up just how corrupt Trump is, but at least they go him dead to righ...

Apparently will be given the rare honor of lying in State, https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/24/politics ... index.html. The impeachement, meanwhile, marches on.

Shell Art Part 2

Had to make a few changes to make it all work. The 1st flat panel LED was not able to dim, it turns out, and it came out exceedingly bright to where it lit up my entire backyard. I bought a second light that was dimmable and came in a more natural amber light and had the good fortune to fit perfectl...

Re: New Shell art idea - part 1

Yeah, no kidding, that would weigh a TON!!! But very interesting and creative!! You are an artist! What medium did you use to stick the shells together on your "canvas"? I've made shell wreaths using the straw type wreaths as a base (Elmer's Glue for an adherent). Even using fewer shells, the wreat...

New Shell art idea - part 1

Its been a few years since I made anything from the shells collected, but due to recent visit to Navarre and being "inspired" I thought I would give it go. This is kind of a redesign of a previous idea I did, though it was bit of a fail. I was happy to see it was still hanging in the carport of the ...

Re: Ukrainian Collusion?

Personally I am shocked that it has taken this long for Congress to finally get some traction on impeachment given Trump's ineptitude on everything. Soliciting foreign powers for dirt on election rivals is against the law, but if nothing else, there current strategy of blocking everything is certain...

Re: Humberto?

Spent a solid 10 days there. Weather was good though the seas got rough in the middle part. I don't really fish, but did catch a small catfish with a net, and caught several nice size Blue Crabs, though released them all. Due to a fiasco with Lowe's subcontractor that was suppose replace carpet on t...

Re: Humberto?

Humberto appears to be a miss but I am keeping an eye on the other disturbance in the Gulf. https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gtwo.php?basin=atlc&fdays=2 4. A large area of showers and thunderstorms over the eastern Gulf of Mexico is primarily associated with a upper-level low pressure area. Only slow develo...

Re: Current Liberal Environment In FL

I did actually read Atlas Shrugged when I was in high school and no, it wasn't mandatory. I took a literature class as an easy elective between my harder science and math classes. Basically just pick your own books and do book reports once in awhile. I read a lot then, but most favored science ficti...

Re: Current Liberal Environment In FL

Not sure if any of you live in Florida or are aware of Florida history. For years, the controlling party of Florida was Democrats. Only with the change of the evangelicals in the late 80s and early 90s did we begin to see the Republicans take seats. It also had to do with many people changing from ...

Re: Current Liberal Environment In FL

The thread makes little sense given that the entire area is very conservative and they control the local governments all the way up to the state legislature and Governorship even now and have for a very long time. Its really a conservative thing to promote unlimited growth and gut environmental rest...

Re: My Sweet Girls

Marko, What breed of dog is that in your avatar? So cute! I enlarged the photo but still couldn't see it very well. We used to tell people it was a Japanese Chin, but then we had it's DNA tested. Turns out it is mostly Pekingese-Pomeranian with some Chow and 10 % unknown. A mutt basically. A friend...
