So I have been training like a maniac lately

The problem being since I throw stuff, the right hand side gets tons of work.

Can we say imbalance, the right side intercostals , you know those meaty bits between the ribs, goes well with BBQ sauce if they are from a cow, are cramping on a regular basis. Makes life fun it does.

Well we all suffer for our passions I suppose .

From the 2 minute capitalist

Lesson 1: Taxing the Rich Hurts the Poor
Taxing the rich almost never hurts the rich. It always hurts the people who are trying to get rich. Have you
ever known anyone who turned down a raise, a promotion, or more work hours? It is o
ften for the same
reason: they don't want to want to work more or take more responsibility for the same pay, sometimes less pay.
That is what can happen when moving into a higher income bracket means moving into a higher
tax bracket.
You don't just pay more in taxes, you pay a higher tax rate. The steeper the tax ladder, the steeper the climb
to success.

The rich are usually the people least affected by taxes on the rich. They have lawyers and lobbyists and
loop-holes to get around their taxes. It makes sense that some politicians who want to tax the rich are often
the same ones who never had to climb that ladder, and who don't pay income tax. The Kennedys,
Rockerfellers, Gores and Chafees inherited their money. John Kerry and John McCain married theirs.
The fairest system for all Americans is this: You pay the same amount per dollar, no matter how many dollars
you make. That is called a flat tax, and it flattens your climb to the top.

The new Caber

Zoomed out to the local United farmers Association and
Gots me a 16 foot post, 6 inch diameter.

Created the caber carrying system for the Subaru,
works well

Taking it home
Ramming speed

The carving process begins so it the one
end will sit nicely in the hands


Throwing time

The plant

Starting the pull

and the follow through

All this from lunch to pickup to throwing

about 3 hours including lunch

Things happen if you want them too
