I mowed the back lawn today, and threw a little sand/dirt mix on a couple of low spots.

I need to do a little of that. And clear the winter deadfall before the first cutting.

I assumed it had something to do with electricity.

IKR. I walked passed one and stopped to look at the menu in the window. Got ascared.

Truth be told, my niece looooooves the place, she we oblige when she visits, about once a year. It is usually dinner and a lunch for me. Some years ago, I would have been checking the desert menu after cleaning the plate :(

You're just trying to make me upchuck, aren't you?

Have two patty melts instead of one of those monstrosities.

Never tried either. Doesn’t look like patty melt is any “better” either. :twitchy:

Love fajitas, couldn't finish a shareable order by myself. Maybe 5 years ago, but not now.

Our local establishment makes killer fajitas. I bought two loaded gift cards in the last month, but I may not get to use them. :(

You should go see Equus if the Knoxville Repertoire Theater ever does it, if we can ever go to the theatre again.

Nope, two of 'em would be no better, but it's not piled in to one, you-have-to-unhinge-your-jaw stack in an effort of self-delusion.

It has been a partnership lasting between 5000 and 10,000 years and maybe more. A very good friend of mine was a quarter horse mix with a John Deere tractor. Which is to say he was not a beautiful animal on the outside but inside he was a prince. He was sweet and affectionate and named Chochise but his friends called him Coach.The video link is to two German girls having a day out with their horse, also a sweet animal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJyT6Qg3ANU

Nice horse.

Our John Deere was easily the worst of the three; it's been retired. The two Fords are older than anyone on this forum and still going strong.

The JD was definitely lower-spec, but still. It was a good 30 years younger and absolutely gutless.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equus_(play)


Comparing the film to the play, English Professor James M. Welsh felt using real horses in the film was understandable, but argued the outdoor scenes infringed on the "abstract theatrical design" that gave the play its creativity.[8] Welsh also felt the explicit blinding was "potentially repulsive," and "much of the spirit of the play is lost as a consequence."

I spent a few years working in small printed circuit board factories. Part of my job was cutting them to size using a pin router, which would send fiberglass dust airborne. Everything in the room would be covered with it, including me. I would itch like crazy and I finally quit the business when I coughed up blood. Docs say I have asthma and COPD, maybe partly due to that.

I did a similar job back in the early 80s, but we had a central vac system so there was no dust problem. Rough cutting, finish with a router, size the rails, and bevel the fingers, a lot of hand work with templates. About a year before the crash, we got a CNC router which was awesome, and doubled production.

Mrs. Pirkaus is an excellent cook, we often cook together. I enjoy cooking and eating, another reason I'm too fat for this sport. :roflmao2:

My first job in the biz was in 1971 when I was 16. There wasn't much concern for the health of the workers. I made $2.35 an hour which was OK to start. I had been making $1.94 as a dishwasher at a hospital until the earthquake closed it.
