Two Colt M4 Carbine that I'm giving too me two great nephews and I got a Czechoslvakia CZ-50 Pistol for my self...

I have a CZ-50 as well, but it came with CZ-70 grips. A very good shooter.

However, the last thing bought was a 2L bottle of Vernor's.

That forum that I've been ranting about. The Fresh Loaf. They do have a way to contact one of the mods. Problem fixed. I'm IN! And i have many many questions. Now it's time for reality to over ride fantasy. Here's what I mean. Many years ago I learned that fire is nothing more than energy being released from a chemical reaction. The reality behind learning that is nothing happened. The marshmallows I was roasting didn't taste any different. Water didn't boil any faster. And watching a fire was just as relaxing. The same goes for cooking or baking. I have heard over and over that baking is an exact science. If you don't use the exact measurements you will not get a good result. it doesn't take long to figure out that's not really true. I've read a good hundred different recipes on white bread. Each recipe is different by adding or subtracting. A recipe may have none of 'this'. One might have some of 'this'. Another one with lots of 'this'. Doesn't matter what 'this' is. Each bread turns out to be bread. Each one tasting different or having a different crumb (texture) than the other. Without any real knowledge I modified a bread recipe. Each different modification turned out a great loaf of bread. To take this to the extreme I've seen videos where bread has been made by sticking wet dough to a board. A mixture of flour, salt and water. Then leaning that board towards an open fire. Makes bread. So what am I getting at? I found out about a book. "How Baking Works".  This book is over 520 pages on nothing but what does what. How eggs react to flour. How salt reacts to eggs. If it's used in baking it's listed. Nothing else. When I saw that book the geek inside me screamed and did back flips. That's when reality sank in. That whole fire thing. And how it changed nothing. You could have a doctorate in chemical physics and your bread wont turn out any better than anyone else's. Bread isn't an exact science. What bread takes is learning a few basic techniques. Because you learn better by doing it takes effort. So bread takes effort. The science behind that effort? Not knowing why water boils will not change a hard boiled egg. : )

I let a friend barrow that refrigerator bread book. Him and his wife are always trying to make fresh bread for the family dinner.  Hopefully what the book has to offer will do them good. I'll let you know. There are may people who rave and praise that book. My single opinion should never sway anyone from trying it.

Pfft, if you want a truely brainy pet, get a parrot or a corvid. Or potentially a rat, as rats can understand causal relationships, something usually limited to primates.

Michen_s  offended? Na, go find sunny window and stretch out. That has always made any cat happy!  :)

I had a dog that was scary smart. A full blood Alaskan Malamute. She trained her pups to eat out of a bowel. Her and her pups would sit in a semi circle around the bowel of food. She would step up, facing the pups. Take a single pice of food. Display this to her pups by keeping it on the end of her tongue. Bring it into her mouth, chew and swallow. One by one each pup would do the same.
