Parents used to call that "Stayabed stew" which I think was really "stay in bed" (stew) but I was too young at the time to get the spelling .. I don't know why... maybe something to do with if you're sick and your getting fed this, you just want to stay in bed- getting fed - because it is yummy..
I guess cows and sunlight power don't mix according to Harry. YOu'ld think if we could send men to the mooon we could engineer bovine hardened solar facilties. Add two feet in elevation to the support posts ,a little tougher grade conduit here and there, and lavender( a drought tolerant herb that cattle hate) around the perimeter if they can't afford a silly fence......Ssheesh
For about 12,000 years, Indians built steambaths at the Geysers and used the steam and hot water for healing purposes and cooking. When Euro/Americans first entered the area, six Indian tribes inhabited the area around the Geysers, three bands of Pomo people, two bands of Wappo people, and the Lake Miwok people. According to Stephen Powers in 1871, "Wappo invalids were accustomed to wallow in the hot, steaming mud and pools, receiving benefit therefrom into their bodies." The Wappo also collected sulphur which they called te'ke and a Wappo village, named tekena'ntsonoma (teke sulphur + nan well containing water + tso ground + no'ma village) was located about 12 miles (19 km) southeast ofCloverdale and on the present-day Sulphur Creek.
The Geysers were first seen by Euro/Americans and named in 1847 during John Fremont's survey of the Sierra Mountains and the Great Basin by William Bell Elliot who called the area "The Geysers," although the geothermal features he discovered were not technically geysers, but fumaroles.Between 1848 and 1854, The Geysers was developed into a spa named The Geysers Resort Hotel, which attracted tourists including Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt and Mark Twain. The resort declined in popularity in the mid 1880s, and rebranded itself to appeal to lower-income people. In 1938, the main building was destroyed in a landslide although the bar/restaurant, small cabins and the swimming pool stayed open, despite another fire in March 1957, until about 1979. Unocal Corporation dismantled the remains of the resort in 1980.
The Geysers is the world's largest geothermal field spanning an area of around 30 square miles (78 km2) in Sonoma, Lake and Mendocinocounties in California. Power from The Geysers provides electricity to Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, Marin, and Napa counties. It is estimated that the development meets 60% of the power demand for the coastal region between the Golden Gate Bridge and the Oregon state line. Unlike most geothermal resources, the Geysers is a dry steam field which mainly produces superheated steam. ( big snip) "
Private sales ain't no such thing........All sales must be through a licensed CAli gun dealer. There's always a middleman. If Joe buys a gun from Shmoe at a show, the gun goes to a dealer first, then to JOe who goes to the dealer to get the gun after paying the xfer fee......
We bought land near Prescott,AZ in Ruger Ranch 8 yrs back. Three months after the fact, we got a cert for free Ruger ,Single Six, 22 ,50 yr commemerative.
, To get it to SAn DIego and in my hands cost me darn near 200$.. There's the permit, the trigger lock, the xfer fee and other gobbledgook
AS far as I am concerned, the triggerlock is my front door.
How does Cali regulate private sales and gun shows these days?
Adam,couches will kill you! DOn't stress, be happy.
Let's just paraphrase Gaius' post to say'" wear wide-brimmed hats, long-sleeve shirt/pant, wide-angle sunglasses and sunscreen where needed. ALso, look out for irregular, mottled, changing, off color or large moles/freckles and have a dermatologist look at them".
WE all need some Vit D. Without it we'd die of cancer.
JOhnno, Make sure to turn it over by hand, first,( spark plugs out) to not tempt Murphy into testing how many valves he can bend against the pistons ( interference due to mis-timed cam).
