Re: Woman Arrested Carrying Gun on Airplane

When you say in a separate hardshell case, can the case be inside a checked bag or must it ride as a completely separate item?

FWIW, I have flown with rifles & pistols in my suitcase after declaring them at check-in and also with [more]

Re: It's Sunday Night

Though surprisingly no okra in any of it (the recipes 1poorlady has for gumbo and jambalaya both call for okra).

Re: Oil in a bottle

You might try a hydrocarbon solvent such as mineral spirits mixed with some detergent.

Or, if you have any on hand, paint stripper should also work. Since it took a long time for the goo to form/accumulate, it may take a few days or [more]

“'Jungle Jake' does some surprising things - even removes blood from clothes if you spray it on stains before washing machine. “

If you want to remove blood without a specialty product, or if you run out, try hydrogen peroxide.

Re: Oil in a bottle

“Have you heated it? “

Tried that today. Hung it upside down in the workshop, played it with a hair dryer. It did, in fact, melt the goo at the bottom, but it run up the inside in drips, and resolidified along the sides.

Re: Squirrels

I see a few squirrels round both places but the feeder seems a less attractive target close to the house. Location could be part of it.

Any tips for dissolving the goo? (Oh, I tried a course of Goo-Gone which seemed to do nothing.)

I would try a “high caustic” such as lye, potassium hydroxide solution, crystal Drano or oven cleaner. Your “goo” is oxidized vegetable [more]

OK. Maybe I misunderstood my neighbors when they say they are draining their pools for the winter. I've never had an outdoor pool. Also watched a campground in Virginia do it, and the siphon hose

Re: Rant: We need more guns at home. Right.

I personally think a person has a greater chance of being a victim of crime when they're out on the street - so do these same people carry a loaded weapon on them when they're out?

The Scariest Day of the Year

Re: Rant: We need more guns at home. Right.

I wonder where people live that they need to keep their gun loaded - maybe someone who keeps a loaded gun around small children isn't bright enough to lock their windows and doors.
