    Put a blank piece of paper in front of me and I'll sign it.

    Yes. Yes indeed. THAT is the excuse one of the people who signed off on the fake Michigan electors claims. That she was handed a blank piece of paper by an unknown person which she signed. Then she says something about the DOJ throwing shit against the wall to see what sticks...

    The absolute JOKE that is American Health Care

    I've posted a number of times about healthcare. I happen to be in a unique position - my sister is a Tech, my sister in law is a physical therapist, my wife is a nurse, her best friend is a nurse administrator. So, we know quite a bit about the system. Nov, 2019, my wife was in a serious car...

We've seen how damaging it is to this country to give those in power the...

    The Pandemic is Over!

    I've been assured that you should just get vaxxed, and you'll be fine!  It's all over! I'm quite sure that this isn't affecting anyone in the hospital who is waiting for a procedure but has been vaccinated.  Right? Oh wait.  My wife went to the hospital last week for kidney stones, and it...

    Replacing balsa in a stern

    I've done a lot of sterns (cue bad jokes), and one thing always popped up that I think could somehow be improved.  On a deck, you can put some epoxy on the balsa and work it so it flows between the squares and compartmentalizes Any future leaks.   Doing that on the stern is impractical.  Short...

    The Front Almost Fell Off....

    Oops. The St. Marys, in that area, can have currents easily exceeding 6 knots.  Being in a catalina (is that a 34?  It's got a sprit, so it's a tall rig) in lighter air is probably not the greatest choice.  Or you should at least have your motor running. You can see them get taken sideways...
