    Someone PLEASE tell me why EVERYTHING has polarized plugs these days...
    Because there's no reason for stuff not to. Why make/store two different style plugs when one will do? 
    Absolutely. Non-polarized. There's just zero reason for 99.999999% of cordsets to be polarized. Something like an old AC/DC radio should have a polarized plug. They never did, but they should have. Some audio amplifiers and similar equipment need  them. I can even get on board with light fixtures for Edison based bulbs having them. But not much else, and the damn things are ALWAYS backwards when I go to plug one in. I'm sure there's some Nanny State reason for this, but I'll be darned if I know what it is...

    Ok, I'm done with sewing for the day. This machine just keeps messing with me, and messing with me, and messing with me. I'm probably going to switch back to the 1936 "Reversew" when I next pick this project up.

    Lowes sucks. Not a single 1/4-28 bolt do they carry.
    Guess ill try a real store tomorrow. It sucks, as all I lack for putting this pistol together is....two flipping bolts.

    fleeced the widows and one crazy person today. Walked 12 miles in the process. Got a bit hot today. I smell like a goat.

    Took the rifle out this Fri. Used PMC 62 gr to knock some of the dust off. Shot a 92 offhand and called them pretty darn close.One high 9 ended up as an 8 and one I knew I muffed wasnt as far out of the black as I thought and stuck an 8. 5-10's 3-9's and 2-8's. MAYBE the curse is lifted. I havnt shot that well in a while, maybe the stance breakdown and rebuild was the key.

    Machine sewing fine today. When I approached the problem from "Something wrong's here, let's fix it" instead of yesterday's "There isn't anything wrong, why does this )&%^% thing keep (&**(^^$% with me?".

    Must have been mis-threaded, I just rethreaded both top and bottom thread paths and all workee again. Helps to remember the basics instead of getting irritated...

    The micro project from H,E, double hockey sticks. Noticed the other day that the outside passenger door handle on the MBZ was loose. I'd never removed one before, but it wasn't bad, somebody somewhere forgot to put one of the two machine screws back on it when they had it off - probably the body shop when I had it repainted 7 years ago. So this screw is missing, metric of course, so I walk down to Ace and get a replacement. Of course Ace didn't have a pan head, Phillips head M6 screw, so I had to buy an Allen head. That's fine, except when I go to put the thing back together, its too deep in the door for a normal Allen key to reach it. "No problem" - I reach for my socket drive Allen set. Except the access hole is too small to fit a socket drive head into. Drive down to Ace this time as its getting hot. Find a 4mm Allen key that is longer than a prostitute's fantasy. Bring it home, works great, everything mo' bettah...

    Putting the inner door skins onto these cars is always a minor hassle, and it was this time but I finally got it back on. The very last trim piece, a chrome escutcheon around the door latch itself, is held on by a pair of M4 screws. You guessed it, one of them is now missing, despite my having put everything aside in a container. After having a Coca-Cola and calming my happy ass down - and having my wife look for the screw also, down to Ace I go yet again to buy an overpriced 32 cent M4 machine screw. By this time, the guys at Ace are asking if I'd like to either work there, or just buy the whole damn store!

    This job should  have taken 30 minutes, instead it took about 3 hours...

    Sigh...

    Just gotta laugh!

    That reminds me of the gardens we had when I was growing up. Lots of fresh vegetables, canning them up for the winter, and hoeing out the weeds in the rows and the middles ALL SUMMER! That was the SOP for most every family in my 'hood' out in the country.

    It was about this point in the stuff coming up that we took a trip to the river to get more cane poles for the 'pole beans' to climb. Dad always insisted on a half acre of sugar cane for making a little sorgum; mighty good on hot biscuits in the winter!

  • terminator012terminator012 Senior Member Posts: 3,131 Senior Member
    I don't raise the pole beans. These Contenders taste about the same and they don't require poles. I did that a bunch when I was a kid and decided these were easier. :)  The purple hulls I just till.i think they would grow on concrete. Got several tomatoes in boxes behind the house. All ready got a few green ones on them. Squash up. Can't wait for some fresh fried squash. Doc probably don't want me frying them but I am anyway.
  • NNNN Senior Member Posts: 23,149 Senior Member
    Fry the squash in canola oil, then the Doc won't get upset.

    We use the canola oil. But nothing is better than the bacon grease. Grandmom kept a quart of it sitting beside the stove.That's all she ever used.

    All loaded last night

    200rnds XM556NT1 ammo delivered

    I'm getting there, ammo wise, for the shoot

    If what the folks that I spoke with about the 6.5 123gr ELDM, they SHOULD shoot the same as the Amax, but am going to try those 20 rounds before I decide what load to settle on for the 300 yard shoot

    5 - 300BO 125gr TMK  -0 Today (just a "scooch" too long)

    I still haven't decided which rifle/load I'm bringing for the distance match,
    But I have narrowed it down to 1 223 load with my RRA/Lilja upper and 1 6.5Gren load in that upper.

    Surprisingly, the 123gr ELD-M bullets shot 2 tighter groups than the 2 123 A-max groups.

    Both were loaded in new cases, with weighed charges
