  Binoculars

I added the above binoculars to one of the GHB. I tried them out yesterday afternoon. They work well, were easy to focus. I was able to read the license plates on class about a block away. So I think they will meet my goal of having ones that will help identify things before I have to walk right up to them. 

I thought they were reasonably priced and the weather proof. 

Although, I will admit I know very little about them, I just didn't want to spend a fortune on them. If you know about binoculars, please share so I can learn.

  I'm not sure what to think about this
Posted by: bmyers - 08-15-2017, 03:08 PM - Forum: The Pub - No Replies

http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-alt-...story.html

I read the article at the above link and I read a few other articles on the ongoing banning of Alt-Right groups and the creation of their own web services.

Part of me thinks why should we have such hateful speech readily available on the internet? Google and other companies are private owned companies and should be able to ban sites.

Yet, on the other hand who should get to decide what is or is not hateful? We lecture China and other nations about not having free speech and filtering the internet, yet we are allowing companies to the same thing.

Which brings up the question, why is one group of hate speech worst than the other groups? If you are going to ban hate speech, shouldn't all hate speech be banned? 

As you can tell I have mixed emotions on this topic.

I don't like people going around stating hateful things. Yet, I'm concerned at what point will my own religious beliefs be considered hateful or unpopular and they start blocking those websites?

So I guess, I would much rather support a wide open internet and ignore what I want to ignore, but not block any of it. 

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.


Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.


Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a Jew.


Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

  Gym Intimidation
Posted by: bmyers - 08-12-2017, 09:37 AM - Forum: Fitness - Replies (1)

As you know, I have only recently started going to the gym. I have been avoiding the weight-lifting equipment until last week. I didn't really want to that area because even at 4AM there are big muscle people over there. 

First off, I shouldn't make any judgement just on appearance, these could be some of the nicest people. Yet, male ego makes it easy to get intimidated.

So yesterday we were down there working out and no one was paying attention to use working, which is the reality of it. 

We were getting ready to move over to our last piece of equipment to finish our workout when a big old muscle guy came over and sit down on the machine we were going to head to next (he had no way of knowing we were going there next). 

So we waited as he did his workout on the machine, flexing and grunting. Meanwhile, I'm sitting thinking it is going to be embarrassing when I have to go over and cut the weight in half just so I can move it.   

He finished, so we moved over there and my wife said give it a try where it is at. We had a debate, but she convinced me, so I tried. Low and behold I was able to do all my reps and I didn't even have to grunt like he did. 

Rhonda, in that wifely tone, said "I told you that you could do it".

So thanks to my wife for the encouragement and helping me overcome my own fears.

  Animal first aid kit
Posted by: bmyers - 08-11-2017, 11:16 AM - Forum: First Aid - No Replies

How many of you have a kit to be able to take care of your four legged buddy?

We have a small first aid kit for them with items to stop bleeding from broken nails, bandages and cream. It also has a list of medicine that are safe to give to dogs and the dosage amount.

The kit is something like this one, but we actually made it from an old first kit and stuff that we pieced together.

One thing you need to include in your kit is a muzzle, when your buddy is hurt they don't understand that you are trying to help.
