We're going to focus on the good times and and be grateful for the friends that are still with us.

That's really all you can do. There's no way to "understand" something like that.

You're obviously familiar with government workers.

Moreso than I would prefer.

I actually was a gov't worker, twice... spent a summer working for the post office and another summer working for the park department. The PO absolutely sucked, but I liked the park dept. job quite a bit. There were too many people ahead of me to get hired on full-time, though. At least back in WI, you pretty much have to wait for someone to die or retire to get hired for real, and then you better have a relative in the office or some kind of dirt on somebody. It was fun while it lasted though. Get paid a decent wage to drive a big comfy riding mower around various parks all day? Yeah, I can handle that... :)

Gus, sorry for your loss.

Allergies have been bothering me all shift and the antihistamines don't seem to be working. It was the same story last year and the year before but it doesn't seem as bad. I still have some pills I haven't tried.

Have you tried the Nasacort spray? It has been working pretty good for me this year. Actually better than any pill I've ever taken.

Just saw my son off to Colorado. Bittersweet. Happy that he get's the opportunity to move somewhere like that, but damn I'm gonna miss that kid. We're really close.

Sounds like you have a few road trips in your future! Thankfully Colorado is only a few (8 I think) hours away.

and Colorado has some really really nice spots.

I've heard they have some nice stripes, too.


Dubz, at least there's bitter to go with the sweet. And it's not like he won't be available by phone or anything, or going somewhere totally off the map - I have a friend who's brother moved to the border of Thailand and Burma to help the Karen tribe there, and he was pretty hard to get in touch with.

WHAT????

A man that doesnt like slim jims????

Unheard of.
I don't care for slim jims. I rather have real beef jerky or sausage sticks from the local butchers. I won't say they are sausage nirvana but they are yummy.

Only if it's made with sheep's milk. Then, I totally agree. Actually, I prefer sheep's milk cheeses, period. Saltier, for one. Manchego, REAL feta, kefalogravia.....mmmm, real cheese. I like regular cow's milk cheeses, but I LOVE me some ewe cheese. Of course, @ $10/lb. and up, I don't use it like CheeseBear does. It gets eaten straight up. No point in diluting excellent cheese with pasta.
I love good cheese. I don't do cheep cheese. Not all the cheese I get is $5-15 a lb but I do love a good cheese!

As I said, once you've had a real dried sausage stick from Green's Sausage House, Slim Jims are just greasy cardboard. I can't help it that I've discovered sausage Nirvana. :cool:
That is actually a good description of Slim Jims. Greasy Cardboard... That could definitely be why I'm not a fan.

If i paid that much for cheese it would damn sure be getting ate all by itself, and would be DINNER :D
You can make it yourself actually... Mozzerella is ridiculously easy to make from scratch. And if you cold smoke it, it's even more amazing!

Very true! We always have a chunk of Pecorino Romano in the fridge. It doesn't take much of it grated with a micro-plane to really improve just about everything you cook.

Also reminds me of a funny story... Supposely, a guy (who shall remain nameless since it involves my ex-wife) had a large chunk of Parmigiano-Reggiano in the fridge when he was staying with one of his daughters. One day she announced that she had thrown out his cheese because it had gotten hard. Oooops... Hahaha... It is kinda tragic though.
I keep Parmiggiano-reggiano in the fridge too, and asiago, and peccarino.

WW - Don't under estimate the value of good cheese. You might want to find a good cheese shop and get a few samples. You might be surprised by the difference in good vs. just regular old Kraft.
There are actually places that will let you take the end cuts home for MUCH cheaper than normal. I usually get my manchego like that.

Wow Todd! Those trucks are incredible! Dare I even ask what some of those vehicles cost?
More than you can afford pal, PETERBILT!

Welcome back Todd! Looks like a great time and some bad ass trucks!! I especially like how the speakers are done up!!

This turned out SWEET!! Sharp as hell too, Thanks again Todd!!!
That is awesome man! It's sweet!
wow who would've thought a rig could be tricked out, airbags even....I must come out from under my rock...
ROB!!!! Good to see you man! How you been feeling? I saw you said you are almost able to spend time in front of the grinder (very good news!)

I asked about a temporary 3 month certificate, but she said she couldn't. I've been reading around on the fmcsa website and can't find the information I need. At first she told me that I needed to use it for 3 months, but then went and checked and found that I need 30 days using it.

Everyone I've talked to that uses a cpap machine says it made an amazing difference in their lives. I'm not sure what mask I'll end up using. I guess I'll wait and see. I've had a goatee since I was in high school and have a full beard all winter, so I don't know how well a full mask will work for me. Hopefully a nose mask will work.
I use the pillows. I don't need to use it all the time, just during the summer months really.

About 950 miles from here. Yeah, we definitely plan on it.
So, 8 hours... Like I said :D

and Colorado has some really really nice spots.
If he is in Denver check out their science center, it's pretty BAMF.
