  1. Victory Stuff What d’ye think, lad; what d’ye think, As the roaring crowds go by? As the banners flare and the brasses blare And the great guns rend the sky? As the women laugh like they’d all gone mad, And the champagne glasses clink: Oh, you’re grippin’ me hand so tightly, lad, I’m a-wonderin’: what d’ye think? D’ye think o’ the boys we used to know, And how they’d have topped the fun? Tom and Charlie, and Jack and Joe Gone now, every one. How they’d have cheered as the joy-bells chime, And they grabbed each girl for a kiss! And now they’re rottin’
  2. Bill Ottinger has a very informative book on this ~ "Napoleonic Plastic Figure Modelling".
  3. I have been trying to fiddle with my notifications and now I don't seem to get any. I am trying to get the red ball to appear beside the globe with no emails. 


    In addition, the piracy thread is no longer visible to me.  I went to the drop down lists of notification and clicked on an old notification from the piracy thread and was told that I did not have access.  I can not see the thrad in its usual place either.  Has it been removed?


    Can you point me in the right direction?



  4. Mechano sets and small rubber bricks that I think were called Minibricks.
  5. My father lived in northern Ontario and had his canoes re-canvased by local Indians (Cree?). I believe that they used the right side up approach while wetting the canvas and putting quite a weight of rocks in the canoe. And maybe re wetting.
  6. In our county there have been 705 cases and 33 deaths. There are released numbers but I a little skeptical. I don't think we have a grip on the cases and perhaps not deaths since symptoms vary.
  7. It is Canada. Some of the "Beware of the bear" signs out west are pretty funny.
  8. I just discovered a feature on my cell phone. I can now set it not to ring if the caller's number is not in my contact list. The feature might have been there for years but I just discovered it. recently, I started getting spam from a friend which I thought odd. Then I noticed that although it said it was from him, the email address was some where in eastern Europe. I figure someone hacked his email account for names and addresses. Since I don't trust my alertness, I blocked him after giving him a heads up.
  9. I believe the sales calls have dropped off over the past few years but the scam calls have increased. There is one that asks (not understanding that their recording is talking to our answering machine) "Can you hear me alright?" I read somewhere that they are recording your answer to play back while scamming the voice recognition gizmos at banks and other financial institutions. I don't know if that is true. The other type of annoying calls are the political calls and pretend surveys. I moved to the USA 35 years ago and thought for a while that the US was the only country that
  10. I used to string along scams and sales calls but we bought a phone set that identifies the caller (not caller id) based on numbers we have entered into the phone. If that phone tells us who is calling we answer. If caller id tells us we do not. They have the option of leaving a message. The caller id can be faked somehow. We often get calls from our own number. I wonder why we have a land line after all.
  11. Haven't heard of health check of drivers. The manager did say something about the size of trucks but I didn't get the gist of it. I am hard of hearing and we were "distancing". They are starting geezer hours here on Tuesdays and Wednesdays as well next week. They have started to put limits on the amounts you can buy. No limits on Ice cream. I thought the days chosen for senior shopping were a bit odd. Why not a bit farther apart? I wonder if it has something to do with stock availability. More of an item early in the week??
  12. Southeastern USA... Publix grocery stores seem to be constantly cleaning and wiping down carts. Hit and miss on cleaning and paper products, meat and frozen foods. I was told by a manager who was frantically stocking shelves that the problem was not product but getting it to the stores. He added that they just hired 80 drivers. Sounds like it is a pig in a python situation.
  13. Have a look at Retired Guy's approach the to Fair a Frame at the begining of his Bluenose log.
  14. Although true, wrote the above post as a bit of a joke. After, I started wondering how I knew that. I am not very intuitive. I don't see it on the Byrnes product page for drawplates. but it may have come with instructions.
  15. I wrote "wood only" on mine when I got it. (Sharpie.)
