    Public School used to be so simple.

    You got up in the morning, went to school and was taught the 3 Rs. No politics. Not so much anymore.

    cutting down a shotgun barrel

    I have a 20 ga pump, sold by New Haven, says "Made by Mossberg" same as Mossberg 500. I have been wanting to shorten the barrel and put a pistol grip on it as it would be a bit unwieldy to use for home defense with the full length barrel. I don't really have any other use for it. 1. How short...

    is freezing up normal for a heat pump?

    No mine. The outside unit was frozen up so bad the fan was rubbing the ice on the coils. Temps been low 30s in daytime and low 20s at night. In the shade on North side of the building it never sees the sun. It took over 8 hrs of running a torpedo heater on it to thaw the ice. Are they (heat...

    Houston Texans continue their plummet. Released JJ Watts today

    A mutually acceptable separation according to all sources. He wanted to play for a championship level team. Dallas may be an option but more likely to be Steelers if they can fit him under the cap and his brother TJ already plays there.. A local news said Tom Brady has already called him. "Come...

    I would love to see the inside of this ranchouse and hear the story it knows

    I've been looking for property farther West and came accross this one. Out of both my price range for my age and more ac than I want anyway but I found the paradoxes it shows to be intriguing.

    Yet another conspiracy theory whackadoddle arrested

    Yep, another one of those way-out-there conspracy theorists that we've all read so much about this year. This is what comes of believing and/or repeating all the BS the web spews out. Someone somewhere, low in intelligence, will fall for it and act on it. The back story from Dec 31...

    East Texas and Deep East Texas cash lease prices/acre?

    I saw the other Texas lease thread, that pretty much turned into a discussion of prices up North. The question: 20-100 acres. Grazing only-no hunting. Native pasture, adequately fenced, water available, ready for cows... Bahia, some coastal and common bermuda, partially wooded ok.. What's the...

    Is there a rule of thumb for approximate water loss per any given weight of green growing grass such as bahia or coastal when it's dried?

    On one acre of native forest ground, how thickly or thinly spaced out would 200 six-eight inch and bigger trees be? For the southern pine/hardwood areas, is that: A lot of trees per acre? Not many trees per acre? About average number of trees per acre? (part of a research project)

    I've about given up on my county

    I've been involved the last 2 months with some public meetings with the Appraisal District's BoD and Chief Appraiser and a petition I started back in late May/early June. We have a little newspaper here and I bought one a few days ago just to see what they had to say about the meetings (we were...
