    Yep. One of the good things of never having procreated is being free to decide when life sucks too much. What happened to me was, my life simply changed to the point where I'm willing to put up with a lot more shit in order to hang on, that I would ever have thought. If you look back at my posts in the old suicide thread, I have always felt that a quick bullet was better than a prolonged death. I've recently changed my mind on that to a certain extent:)

    I'd go see a doc, but on the long range shit, I wouldn't have given a fuck. Never expected to or wanted to get old and infirm. Now I'm hoping for the first part and willing to put up with a certain amount of the second. People change, you know. You must have thought these things over yourself, I imagine. Is chemo worth it or not. If your life sucks anyway, maybe not. If you have a lot to live for, ride that horse to the end.

    Yep. That would have worked just fine before the mail order bride re-entered my life. Back then I would have refused chemo and just let the shit have it's way. I really didn't give much of a fuck. Now I've all of a sudden got a lot to life for. So bring the chemo on.:)

    Except for telling people to goddamned well go to the doctor, when they are sick. A lesson I learned when my immune system went pear shaped.

    Oh, I knock them against something hard for every 3rd tooth, to knock the filings out of them. Somebody ought to rip Stihl America a new a-hole, really. We are still waiting for the 500i. They keep postponing the release day.

    Yea, that is just such a bummer. I really can't imagine life without him. We've always been there for each other. We were talking a couple of days ago, and were detailing the different types of Chemo, that we have to undergo and the prospects for a life after them. Suddenly he looked at me and said: " Do you think we'll end up talking about this shit for the rest of our lives", so we quickly began talking about Trump instead. Way more fun!

    Had my usual sunday dressage training under the tutelage of a swiss expert. My best friend since childhood has been diagnosed with liver cancer and is in Chemo right now. His outlook is pretty bleak. So we try to keep some happiness in our lives. One of those is being taught dressage by Margot aka. the mail order bride, who is a very accomplished Baroque rider ( how many riders do you know, who have had their horse do a full Capriole and kick a Rottweiler over a fence). She is a merciless teacher. I've gotten more praise from Japanese karate trainers than from her. With her, it is all about the horses, us riders are just a neccessary nuisance. Today everything worked perfect. The horses were unusually well behaved, despite the fact that our local rich guy was having a " Kill as many grain fed and released pheasants as you can in 2 hours" day. Sounded like the Battle of Verdun, minus the shelling. It is the small things that count.:)

    Honestly, with the price of files, I can't be bothered to brush them, dip them in vinegar..........whatever. I try to look at how doing things compare to however many dollares I need to make an hour to make it worthwhile. Only place that doesn't figure in is in weight saving. I happily pay the price for light bars, just like I happily shelled out the dough for the new MS462 for the whole crew, when it came out. But if the price of a round file is what makes or breaks you, something in your business setup is wrong.

    Because the grooves on the files ran straight back then, that was how we did it.

    put the pull line through the canopy and tie it to the near end of the branch. Tighten it, bringing the branch upwards, then cut the tree. The stored force in the branch and the elasticity of the pull line ( unless you use Dyneema) will bring the tree over fast enough that the hinge won't break untill it doesn't matter, anyway. I can't believe we can get into such a discussion about a tree, that is more of a black currant bush than it is a tree. That lil' thing should be a piece of cake.

    We've got the Amanita virosa Looks a lot like an Agaricus and has killed an ungodly number of people. Worst case was in the 80es. A bunch of Vietnamese refugees found a lot of them, decided they looked enough like a Vietnamese edible mushroom to be edible too. Picked them all and shared them with their Vietnamese neighbours in the refugee camp. Massive death count. Only last year some Congolese refugees pulled the same one. Most of the family died. So call me paranoid, but I only eat the wild mushrooms I've picked or looked over, myself. Which I do a lot. When working in the woods, one might as well enjoy the fruits of it. Every new apprentice has been totally hooked on bringing home the schrooms that we find during work. That is one place where my near photographic memory comes in handy. I surely know my schrooms.

    I used to listen to it on the radio when I worked in New Zealand. Listening to a game that goes on for days.....weeks?...........years?, when you have no idea about the rules or what constitutes a win is a weird experience, indeed. I've had acid trips that made that seem normal.
