  1. First, both of you used this thread as an unmerited opportunity to promote your own personal belief system/religion. YES, RELIGION. Or shall I say Rubbish? Second, I think the man deserves a round of applause for coming forward and admitting his mistakes publicly to warn others. I doubt either of you would do that. Why, that might disturb your carefully erected veneer of infallibility. Any why would you want to help anyone else, right? That would betray your bankrupt atheistic principles. Now I remember why I stopped posting on this site. My time is too valuable an asset to waste bantering with the likes of you.

    Neither. This building.
  3. As Newt knows (he and Jan fished with me once), I live in Michigan and fish Lake Michigan for salmon and trout quite regularly in a 16' lund. It's essentially a large freshwater sea which is littered with the wrecks of a lot of boats and ships, because it can get pretty hairy at times. There's even an airliner out there somewhere which went down in 1950, they never did find it. Anyhow, the point I'm trying to make is that if you have a boat it's better to err on the side of caution when you go fishing or boating, even if conditions seem favorable. Four days ago an acquaintance of mine, Dave Mull, who edits Great Lakes Angler Magazine, was trolling in an 18' Lake Assault several miles offshore when a series of misjudgments led to its capsize and rapid sinking. Dave spent three hours drifting with a beverage cooler while his three companions - two men and a ten year-old boy, spent four. Only the boy was wearing a life preserver. I think they were pretty fortunate to survive, even though it was a bright, sunny day with minimal waves. You may read Dave's blog about the experience HERE (Stupid, Adrift and Thanking God for a Coleman Cooler). Ken

    It can't be worse than the Gherkin, or is it?
  5. Take back this southern weather, Newt. It's even going to top 100° f up here the next three days.
  6. I'm headed for Steamboat Springs in August, but that's high in the Rockies, west of the plains. When I lived in Reno in the Great Basin summer temps were 105°F every day, without a cloud in sight. Water and green was scarse there, I can't say I miss it one bit. I remember at work one day spotting some poor vagrant lying on the ground behind some bushes at midday, with nothing but a newspaper to cover his face from the hot sun. I told my boss about it, he investigated and told me to "forget it, he's just some vagrant." What a dick.
  7. That was probably Scaseman, he has been known to use Jedi mind tricks. Come on, Phone, everyone has heard Zeppelin.
  8. Still going strong after 8 years. New game begins on Friday.
  9. Ouch. I've not been that unfortunate, but I tend to keep my distance and spray the nest generously. I've been stung enough times by wasps and especially bald-faced hornets that I take great pleasure in killing them, they're miserable bastages. A few years ago some yellowjackets found an opening in my house and made a large nest in the finished ceiling of my basement, I knew they were there when they began coming out of my HVAC ducts within the home. I eliminated them with an insect fogger, but before that happened my poor wife got a scare. Some wasps had gotten into the basement and when she shook a curtain one of them flew up the leg of her pants. I tell you, I have never seen anyone shuck their clothing off that fast, she was a real blur. One moment she was running in place, screaming, and then she was gone, just like that, her pants lying in a heap on the floor. My daughter and I looked at each other then we guffawed out loud for a few minutes until my gut ached. I'm smiling as I write this. And she didn't even get stung.
  10. I wait until dark then spray by the light of a flashlight. If some escape and come after me for some payback, the light goes off.
  11. Good one. I too find it useful to stay in touch/find certain folks I want to stay in contact with. I don't however find much value in idle chit-chat regarding what was eaten for breakfast, my fav TV program, etc. Wait! isn't that what we do here in Non-Fishing Chat?

    Hello UK

    Well, I tried the haggis and found it at least edible. Reminded me of corned beef hash, my friend Fred thought it delicious. Back in London now, headed for Chicago tomorrow. Adios!

    Hello UK

    Methinks I should get me hip-boots, I'm being bool-shite-ed. This morning I had a coot (good) breakfast, according to my waitress. Took me a moment to realize she wasn't talking about waterfowl.
