Man, these are great times we live in !
Now they just need to figure out how to get illegals to build the next ones.

I have tired of waiting for Milwaukee to release a packout rolling cart for their organizers and have decided I will just make my own.

Jack Reacher - 2012 movie. What an incredibly stupid flick.

Turning channel.

I saw it listed but skipped it.

Im doing Easter classics. "The Greatest Story ever told'.

Not as good imo as the"Ten commandments". I'm pissed I never make it long before crashing out and sure enough I missed most of it as usual.

Anyway, every few minutes, when I needed a brain break, I'd turned the volume back up.

Movie was wall to wall cliches.

And the so-called "fight scenes": esp the one in where "little Tom" was in the bathtub - I've seen better acting out of grade school kids.

God. smh

There was better acting in the early japanese godzilla flicks.

smh x2

Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


Tom Cruise is my favourite part about those movies. Not because I like Tom Cruise. But, having read most of the Reacher books, I know that he's basically the exact opposite of the character he is trying to portray. 5' 8" 160# Cruise trying to be 6' 5" 250+# Jack Reacher... riiiight.

LOL... I don't generally watch those type of movies for the excellent acting...

Suspension of disbelief makes more movies better...

On one of our build sites in horseshoe that was probably the worst rainstorm I have ever been in for 10 mins. Flooded all ditches in seconds etc.

My brother was not too far away at a job site in Blue Lake and said it wasn't that bad. A friend of mine's yard was completely destroyed by the rain. Completely sideways rain

This is a driveway at a house I built last year, that Builder building that house next door moved one of the blocks apparently and has no retention up. I'd say he's going to be out 10 grand or more.

I'm no expert but that being a fire exit at the end of the hall I'm pretty sure this is a huge violation of fire code...
