I feel the same way. If they are only embarrassing themselves or embellishing the facts a bit (to make them look better or are just too ignorant to look things up) then I let it go. If they are giving out misinformation that others may act on I feel obliged to provide a little "backup".

Anyone want a bowl of tag soup? .

Edit: Sous congrats on retirement, I hope everything works out for you! A career in the military is not an easy one, you've earned some R&R. :thumb:
Ugh, the chain smokers alone would run me off . I will say that campground camping in California isn't all bad simply due to the law of no smoking....and they heavily enforce it. Leo Carillo is one of my fondest memories. It feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, drinking beer by the fire, but you get up in the morning and surf the point or fish if the waves are bad.

We went up to the mountains near Camp Verde, AZ to visit my BIL. We went to an antique engine and tractor show where we saw a lot of cool stuff, then my BIL got another sign for his collection. Then we went home and had some Mesquite smoked tri tip smoked in my BIL's home made smoker.. The truck ran super the whole way, steep grades no problem except for all the little cars clogging up the left lane.

That brings back memories of the family farm. We had Allis Chamers growing up, AC, WD, WD45, 170,185 then everything started getting bigger and slowly transitioned to International then eventually Steiger tractors. Seems like a a Lifetime ago...County Fairs, Tractor pulls, FFA.

I miss those days. Simpler times. I remember as a youngster going to a tractor pull in the Hoosierdome when I lived in Indianapolis. Awesome tractors (everything from 1 to 4 engines on a tractor and jet power too). I think that is when my gradual hearing loss started.

Aaaaa the good old days. I recently attended a farm auction here for a place that must have been three or four generations old and they never got rid of their old equipment. The oldest tractor I saw (what was left of it) had a tiny engine in the rear and they transitioned up from there to modern day equipment. They had sockets and vises out the wazoo, what do they do, just go buy new ones when the old ones get buried on the bench?

Yeah, shop Gremlins take a tool it disappears UNTIL you buy a replacement then it's sitting right in front of you. I swear if I ever catch one of those SOB's... I can't tell you how many times I've had a tool just disappear that I was just using! We farmed close to 2000 acres when I left for the Army. Sometimes you bought a second set of a specific tools to just keep it in the hay mower or combine. It was cheaper and saved time rather than having to drive back to the farm shop.
I think I'd have a hard time going back to that lifestyle now, despite some times of the year are "***** to the wall" it really is a slow way of living compared to what you see in a large city or around the world.

Back to the topic of TV, I've been buying "Forged in Fire" on Amazon streaming, and my wife and I are both addicted to it. While diesel, guns, BBQ'd meat, and tractors are very masculine - slammin' hot iron with a big hammer to make a deadly weapon is downright essence of testosterone.

Out of boredom looking for things to watch on airplanes, I recently ran across a goofy sitcom called Chuck on Amazon. Guns, spies, nerds, computers and hot chicks fighting in every episode. Not a chance I'll get my wife to watch it!!

Sounds like a good one Rich. We'll have to check it out. I watched a similar one with Jesse James where he went o spend time in Israel with some well known forger. It was pretty neat to watch how much work goes into making swords or anything out of metal. meanwhile, we have been binge watching "Hunting Hitler". Season One came out in 2015, but if you like history at all, this has been a very intriguing one to watch. It covers the idea that Hitler did not die, but in fact escaped and spent his days with high ranking **** officials planning the 4th Reich. All of the declassified files and people involved in kind of mind blowing. It's entertaining anyway.

Hope all is well with everyone on this fine Saturday morning. We are enjoying the 50 degree weather and the shining sun. It's high school rodeo day here in Harrison...ah rural life ...

Forging iron is a blast (pun intended) for sure. Been doing amateur blacksmithing for a few years now. Haven't made any blades yet but lots of crosses, hooks, ornamental stuff and a shovel handle. Here's some pics of my grandson making a cross in my shop, heated on my home made coal forge and pounding on my 112 lb English Mouse Hole anvil which I have since sold and now have a 150 lb Arm & Hammer along with a 59 lb Swedish anvil. The other pics are at a local open forge where he is making a fiddle head fern. The older guy is my cousin who is an accomplished blacksmith. Funny thing is I had no idea he even existed till I happened to meet him at one of the open forges and we found out we are cousins.
