Some guys like to cut the rock off a flat stack - works really really well and very fast.

My wife and I go there every year. I love Vegas. It's the only place I can really relax. Something about the ding, ding, ding of all the slots that relax me while I'm sitting at the gambling tables.

I think that's better "thought" than said, or written.

True It really depends on where they are born. Also similar are cyclones which spin in the other direction Becuase they form south of the equator. I did not bother to make the correction to his post as I knew what he meant.

We definitely have different views of relaxation....

Mine is isolation in the north woods of Maine.

Yes . The board is staged against the walls .

Who's anyone? After the board shows up .. No one should be there but us. And It's not in our way. If It were laid in the floor it would be In OUR way. In Commercial work They lay the board on the floor .. Which I can understand .. Metal studs won't hold the weight .

Pulling my good shoulder out of its socket 10 minutes into the day. Now my original bad right shoulder feels great compared to my newly tweaked shoulder. Sheesh.

Re: Things I Hate


Finding out that my shoulder xray is clear, but they caught a bit of my lung on the picture and now want chest xrays. Dark spot.

95%likelihood to be nothing...so now I have to think about that all weekend.

Had that happen before. The waiting sucks. Ended up being a nipple that flashed the xray. They put nipple covers on me and all was clear in the second xray.
