Our family motto was exactly the same but, not as politically correct--it ain't no 50-93 is it Simon? Cute though. :clap: toothy

As per your cute video, NO that aint real. But you notice in the second shot that there is a bunch of flies in the camera. Those are mosquito's and lots of them. They don't mention temperature but all the men have long sleeves on. The guy in the kayak is not a native. And he is pissed about the boat in the later shot because he is putting up some waves. He thinks that now that he has moved to town and is paying big taxes on his "summer home", that they should cater to his desires. Even worse if it is a lesbian paddling the kayak. And most of the boats have straight pipes, so fire that puppy up on a quite morn and kick er in the corner! Black smoke and all. Oh, I forgot to mention the gulls.....They crap all over anything they can light on and somethings they can't. Dump Ducks from the days of every town having its own dump. Oh yeah, that cloud out on the horizon....it is fog and it is just laying there waiting for the sun to come up and generate a sea breeze. Then it will drift in and make the fine sunny day cold, miserable, and damp. I didn't even mention the tourists, blackflies, mooseflies, horseflies, no seeums,
Did I leave anything out? Probably, but you get the picture....and we ain't even talking mud season or winter.

Get your mica from Ashville Mica Supply Co. I'm sure you have seen me mention them several times already. Don't worry it's not that expensive.

Sorry Newbie, I didn't check back after my diatribe. Yes, I am correct. Maine is a wild(less then it used to be) remote(up east and north and west) and quiet place. The weather is so bad that I have seen families move in because they thought it was Bar Harbor or Old Orchard Beach year round (how bad can winter/mud season/fall mud season(sometimes frozen, be?) And move out less then a year later. Visit it and admire it for what it is. But to move into the outer reaches is to be a particular type of person. And most of them voted for Oidiot. And now the natives do to because there are no jobs and they are captured by the welfare, healthcare, wick, fuel assistance, and SS benefits for being dumb, alcoholic, or hurt :roll: . No kidding, I know a guy(knew a guy) that got a pension for being a drunk, and he promptly drank himself to death. That must be the death panels they talk of. All it is going to take is some tinkering with the rules for fishing and the money game the lobstermen have going right now will be over. (Believe me, they make GOOD money) It is the only thing keeping traditional families in the ungodly beautiful harbor homes and scenes in way downeast Maine. Just let the gov. get them or the fishery to collapse a bit and even though many of them are millionaires, they will be taxed off that valuable land.
It is hard for some to fathom that Maine is that different. After all, Portland is just right up there. We ain't talking Portland as the rest of Maine calls it N. Boston. Go spend a winter in Fort Kent with our northern most member, sterling40man, and you will get an education.

Glad you enjoy my take on things. Many in the family have asked me to write a book about growing up "in the bay" as our ancestral home was called. Holmes Bay it is called. I have seen the transition from true poverty to created poverty in rural areas and the damage the created kind has done. I am called the Curmudgeon by family and friends for good reason.

Im sorry Coalnewbie, that so sucks brother. :sick:

I am about to order mine from McMasterCarr.com
http://www.mcmaster.com/#mica-sheets/=on0owd

William did give me a link to another site that he buys from, I cant remember the site right now, but its in my thread somewhere. We buy alot of material from McMaster, they have good stuff, cheapest mica prices anywhere and they only deliver next day for the same price.

look at it this way, if this is the worse thing that happens, concider yourself luck. ;)

Hell it could have been a giant crack somewhere (ssshhh :mad: ).

Im glad to see you did get it fired up though!!! :up: Im still a ways off. :whistle:
