    My Lady Jean and have a nice little ranch near Denver. On our tender little 35 acres, we have ten alpacas. They belong to the Camelid family, llamas, vicua and the true humpty humpers. They're cute too, so Lady Jean is happy. We're expecting a baby "cria" in May. Our first breeding try. We have all females except one old gelded male, Andy. You don't keep the boys and girls together as the boys will go through a fence if he gets the right wink! We have two years of fleece, they get shorn once a year and yield around...

    This is nuts. After 51 years of Cub Fandom, we're in the Series. Schwarber makes the lineup as DH, what a fine credit to the Cubs Mgmt team to have him with the team during rehab all summer. Lester starts tonight, still can't throw to first, or second for that matter. All other factors being equal, which they aren't really, Cubs pitching will win this series for Chicago.

    Why do I Enjoy Firearms? The South Carolina Chapter held a raffle. I never win raffles, however, I still contributed to the cause. I won a Rem 700 n .270. Yeah, no kidding. Upon returning home, I completed a transfer request per IL law. A week later I was at a range all by myself with a cardboard box. I asked for help and instruction and spent the rest of the day shooting. Over the next few months I spent every Sat AM out there. I took additional classes from a great family team consisting of an ex Chicago cop...

    Here we go with another freak out about a winter storm. From naming it like a hurricane to generate more angst, to the continuing reminders that it "COULD" be a top ten storm in all time history, the weather guessers are doing the hype dance. Granted, this one looks particularly nasty, but most sane people will grab some extra milk and get home early Friday before the main bands hit. Take cover NE FReepers and keep us updated on how it's coming along. Post lots of pics from your yards and neighborhoods so we can all OOOOH and AHHHH...

    It is summer for sure. Colorado is experiencing 90-100 degree F days in the north east plains. Forest fires, high winds and dust complicate the time we can have the windows open as even at 80Deg in the house, the low humidity makes it comfy. The Carrier AC unit for this house (3,500+sq ft, 4BR, high ceilings) has had issues since I moved in. Refrigerant leaks and an electrical issue. Now, with the heat of the summer coming back, the AC unit can't keep up again. I've cleaned the unit outside, replaced the inside filter and am still getting some...

    I've thought about this proposal on and off for some years, however, on this particular Veterans Day I'm throwing out for public discussion. My next step could be to send it to my state Senators et al. If you serve in the military and remain state side then you would NOT PAY any Federal Income Taxes for five years after your discharge. If you serve in a foreign country, then you pay no Federal Income taxes for ten years after your discharge. If you serve in a war zone and are injured you pay no Federal Income taxes for the...

    In case you haven't seen this book by John Bascom (published Jan, 2011) I would highly recommend it to all Freepers, but I warn you that it is the most evil book ever written.It is more scary than Stephen King's "IT" which, to this day, still causes goosebumples when I think of the clown-monster.Bascom weaves a nasty tale, written as the autobiography of his central character.The plot is basically that through accidental means a terrible virus is unleashed on mankind. The fall out from that activity caused by Mr. Caine is described in horrid detail with many twists and turns...

    Illinois Senate President John Cullerton today suggested the state should start taxing the retirement income of senior citizens who are able to afford it. The state does not currently tax pensions or retirement funds such as 401(k) plans, but Cullerton told a City Club of Chicago luncheon that should take place as part of an overall look at what he said was Illinois' "outdated" tax system. "It would just be a matter of fairness," said Cullerton, a Chicago Democrat.

Top choices available are to purchase / trade for the gift cert are: Ruger 10/22, Henry 16+1 with Octagonal barrel or Remington 597 in .22LR with a nice little 4 x 32 scope. Will use for range & target and upcoming Appleseed. It would be nice to still have the .22Mag Marlin to keep it company... Thoughts,...

    AP / Yahoo ^ | 12=8-10 | CHARLES BABINGTON, Associated Press Charles Babington, Associated Press 33 mins ago
    WASHINGTON Raising the direst alarm yet, the Obama administration warned fellow Democrats on Wednesday that if they defeat the big tax-cut compromise detested by many liberals, they could jolt the nation back into recession. President Barack Obama appealed anew for Congress to "get this done" and insisted that more congressional Democrats would climb aboard as they studied details of the $900 billion year-end measure. Several did announce support on Wednesday, but at least one said there still was "a mood to resist."
