    BTW, I still have this issue with authority. But for some reason, I like Denton...

    Actually, I took the time off, and got back to my first love, polishing. What did I miss?

    BTW, I'm a changed man. I am now 70 years old. Went to the gym like always, and found I could only press three sets of 275 pounds--and the last lift was a "mercy lift" from a spotter.

    As for humor, yeah, I joke around a bit, but yikes--have you sampled other forums? I've seen better banter at funerals. If I want a good night's sleep I send a text to a moderator...

    So, have no fear. I want to meet people, hear stories new to me, and find out what I missed. I know I'll swap some recipes with Annie...
    Good to see you back, Tourist!

    How does a person learn to like a Jack Booted thug? Does he give free knives out to those who admire Jack the Ripper maybe?

    Well, this is a forum. From time to time we are going to disagree. To that, Denton has a job to do, and my guess is that some times he signs out with a knot in his stomach. I don't want to do that simply because there's a disagreement in a hobbyist forum.

    If Denton feels I crossed a line, I wouldn't be angry. I'd be embarrassed.

    There you go again! A hobbyist forum!!!!!!

    How do you equate this place into a hobbyist forum????????????

    I have been at this for 40+ years, my driving force was and is to survive whatever I could, have, and what may well now be coming.

    This COVID19 bug was just a little bump in the road for us here because of the preps, lacked nothing.

    That statement to me is an insult, I am sure it is to others also,

    and you used it in your parting statement before leaving us for a more receptive forum.

    My hobbies are, hematology, biology, amateur radio and cooking, nowhere does this survival preparation dovetail in as a hobby.

    Flying was a hobby that turned into a profession for 10 years, that I had to drop out of.

    I am a student of history, mostly of WW2, and the evolution of the US into a industrial giant in the 30's, not a hobby to me.

    I am sure you will remember that I corrected you in a statement relative to a "U" boat on the great lakes, that is from my studies.

    Saving your life may be a hobby to you, but not to me or others here.

    I am here for several reasons, I do not need to be here for any survival information.

    The two prime reasons I am here are, to help others with information I have garnered over the decades, second reason is,

    To keep a finger on the pulse of the nation as others see it where they live, those that think like most of us do here.

    I do not need this forum in any way, certainly not as a hobby.

    I work on guns for a profession, that was a hobby 60 years ago that turned into a profession, I give advice here on them also.

    I agree about Denton and all of our current mods. I wouldn't have that job.

    But survival is a hobby??? REALLY???

    Frankly, being a part of the terrified masses doesn't appeal to me. Others were screaming about empty shelves when the panic hit. My wife just said good job.

    I wouldn't say it is an obsession... more like scratching an itch in the back of your mind.. for me anyhow.
