i'll walk around in the next few days of unseasonably seasonable weather and take a few pics of the ones around here, since we are in proximity of the train yards.

hahah you called it MDF!!!!

I think way back on the original "work in progress" thread, I posted the test firing results and stone/steel dissections showing the cone of force created by impact on the granite, but still stuck to the steel.

and that was if you hit the same spot twice. I felt pretty good about it.

Hello campers.

Looks like I picked a good year not to run the Boston Marathon. Having finished it three times, I know exactly what's happening and how things are laid out. It breaks my heart to see this shit happen, but at the finish line of the Boston Marathon? Sick bastards. May our prayers be with everyone involved.

Glad to hear you took the year off, and I hope your friend's okay, tamarakay. Google's set up a person finder for ppl to share or seek info about specific individuals, I hope everyone looking for loved ones gets good news in their search.

first off:
Though I knew you were taking the year off, Doc, I did think about you and hoped none of your friends were affected.

second:
Foogin humans!!! How, does anyone think, doing that, will change anything? So many keep preaching "tolerance". I"m not sure I want to or am willing to, tolerate any group that may be responsible. And if it's the "random individual(s)", a public hanging........as of now, they know the worst that will happen to them is life getting fed in prison.

Agreed Tamara. The first thing I thought of was Doc and praying he was alright as we all know he raced the marathon. Thankfully he is.

Now the praying is for those affected, including an 8 yr old as I have just read. :cry:
Excuse me Ma'am, your going to feel a small prick.

I hugged you the first time I met you and it was'nt because of any damn chair! :roll:

I do know the difference between genuine kindness from a friend and someone who sees only the chair. Having the valuable one makes the cheap one look even more tawdry.

Ygmir, over the days I've been gone, thinking about all this, one of the first things I thought was that I was being unfair to you. I had been following my own train of thought about the "politeness" thing but when I posted, I jumped in without the intervening steps. I wronged you my friend, and I'm sorry.

I am going to repeat, for the general audience, that I feel, strongly, that the idea that because I am in a wheelchair, I therefore belong to world and that anyone who wants to fuss over me gets to, or at least gets to try, is offense and a curtailment of my freedom. I would love to have the dignity of Rosa Parks, for instance, but I will fight my fight even if I look stupid and over-reactive, because I will not live on a leash. But that is a very separate thing from my friendship for, and regard of, you.

A couple of words about "help". Help can be a form of control.

Or maybe I'm some sort of a damn rabbit or deer (although, I tend to relate to predator species in my mind, at least), best viewed sitting quietly, so I don't run away.

Or you could slice it as "introvert, easily overwhelmed by people invading personal space."

Exactly!

I don't have the time or energy to waste, let alone figuring the motive for the offer.

It seems every time I eat in a restaurant, they always wait till I have a mouth full of food to ask if "everything is ok"!

I find this puzzleing, but that's as much of an emotional investment as I'm willing to make. 8)

If it helps any of you, I like being independent, and I hate people fussing over me. Also, I am, sadly, reliant on other people to a much greater extent than I was 6 years ago--I can't even take a shower without making sure someone's available to rescue me, and I've never fallen off my shower chair, so it's as much to relieve the fears of the household as it is something that I feel I need--so, losing any bit of the autonomy I do have is taking it out of much less than I wish I had.
