G’ morning Fatwa.

OK, Mac, you got me with the thread video--can’t help but grin watching that jumping coon.

You guys--get your minds out of that gutter! Sheesh…

I can imagine what you’d be thinking if you heard these classic lyrics:

From the coonskin cap on the top of ol’ Dan
To the heel of his rawhide shoe;
The rippin’est, roarin’est, fightin’est man
The frontier ever knew!

Not exactly news, but Harry Reid (POS-NV) is a real piece of work:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land.

“It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.

A nation of laws, not men. What a quaint notion coming out of our nation’s capitol.

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven and Fatwa! (in reverse alphabetical order, by height)
Day two of presentations is upon me. I’ve already seen four presentations on fireworks -- I wonder how many more I’ll see today?

What…no presentations using aqua regia yet? (Good opportunity to test the fume hood…) 😉

Some of the presentations were good, some not so much. There were probably four or five more on fireworks.

Mac --

Thanks for letting us know so we can send good wishes atcha.

(Got my kickin’ leg all warmed-up from booting the morning thread a couple of days ago. You’d correctly scheduled it; it does need a bit of encouragement occasionally, doesn’t it?)
