It turned damn cold here in a hurry. I got a good workout running a grinder and was still chilly. More long Johns are on order.

Thank you for that mental image!  >:(

The washing machine is turning out CLEAN CLOTHES again!  :frolic:

I have parts on order to get the agitator working properly but was able to cobble things together well enough to get work clothes for tomorrow that won't feel like they're trying to crawl off my back while I'm wearing them.

I told someone about cleaning the washer and they asked why I didn't just buy a new one.  :wtf: I mean, I know we live in a throwaway society but spending $500 on a new machine when $5 worth of parts and a little elbow grease gets the old one working again confuzzles me.

You have the ability to fix things, most people don't. It's also possible that your appliance was made to be repaired. Again most things at not. Manufacturers only make profit on new sales.

It snowed the other day. Sadly, I didn't really get to see it much since I was at work, and walking to the front doors to see the snow in my current condition is really hard on me. =(

It depends on the cause of your pain, but if you can get hold of some Celebrex capsules, they may bring some relief.

:notes:   (six factorial)   6! = 720 and 66! = 5.4 followed by 92 zeros which is  a really big number ....so where do we go with the sixes from here?

the very first story in the Bible tells of a garden in which the first humans incorrectly chose knowledge over obedience.

Nah. The same knowledge would have come if they had been obedient, and Adam probably wasn't after knowledge at all.

Hello, John V. Good to see a new member diving into discussions.  :)

You've made an interesting assertion. Can you back it up with references from the Bible? How would knowledge have come if they had been obedient? What do you think Adam was really after? What about Eve's motivations?
