Last metal working was to silver solder box knife blade to a bit of 1/4 inch all thread to make a tool for cutting dandelion roots. I drilled a hole in a golf ball and stuck the golf ball onto the all thread to make a comfortable handle.
11 years ago, while posting under this current nym, Rudy Canoza, we had a
discussion about a revised marketing claim concerning grass-fed beef from
USDA. You claimed that you had written to and received a reply from
Sessions, Associate Deputy Administrator, Livestock and Seed Program. Here
below is the post you wrote using the nym Rudy Canoza containing your
correspondence with William Sessions.
[start- Jon to me]
Eat shit and bark at the moon, Dreck - the proposed
standard has NOT been adopted. I wrote to William
Sessions, the associate deputy administrator (how's
that for a title) at the Livestock and Seed Program at
USDA that is in charge of writing the standard for the
"meat marketing claims"; his name, title and e-mail
address are at a web page whose URL I gave yesterday,
Here's his reply:
Mr. Ball: Thanks for your message. The marketing claim
standards are still under review by USDA. Accordingly, the
standards have not been published in a final form for use. I
hope this information is helpful.
Please let me know if further information is needed.

I have read about the proposed standards, and I've seen
many of the public comments sent to USDA. I cannot find
anything to indicate if the standards were adopted.
Were the standards as proposed in 2003 adopted?
Thanks in advance.

Yeah you will. You're an old man who hasn't looked after himself. I wouldn't
go around goading people if I was as small and as puny as you are, liar Jon.
You ought to be very careful.
> You certainly have no means to hasten my death.
Are you really serious, weed? you're just over 5 feet tall and 64 years old.
You'll be 65 on December 2nd. You've got to stop threatening people and
goading them to come after you. You're pathetic.
I got as far as saving a nice maple sapling for the handle and digging
through the steel rack for the rod, then decided this is a better
project to buy instead of build. Anything jabbed into the ground
here -will- hit a rock.
This kind of started out trying to use a little induction heater module from china for silver soldering. But I think I blew one of the IGBT's. So I just used a propane torch. Will get back to the module when the IGBT's I ordered arrive.
Maple will be nice for a push tool, but forget it for prying tools.
If you wrap a couple winds of baling wire at the bottom end (unless
you go with a socket) it will help for small amounts of prying. For
large socketed prying tools, you really want hickory or elm for the
strength and interlocking grain. Elm was ALWAYS used for wagon wheel
hubs and spokes for that very reason. The Eric Sloane books
(especially A Reverence for Wood) spoke a bit about that, but George
Sturt's The Wheelwright's Shop covered it in detail. All excellent
We have about 30% river rock here, combined with nice, rich, fluffy,
heavily composted soil around here. I resorted to using a rubber
mallet when installing landscape fabric staples, and sometimes had to
move the thing half a dozen times to find 6" of rock-free soil. When I
was doing lots of fencing for a couple years, I invested in an HF post
auger. With the 6" bit, it would routinely bring up half a dozen
fist-sized river rocks with the 18-24" of dirt from each hole. That
was absolute hell with a clamshell digger, so the auger was dearly
loved from the first hole on. Besides, my arms couldn't take more
than a dozen clamshell-dug holes in a week. Shovels were easier, but
that post-hole digging is the pits.
Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they
The hardwoods in my back lot are maple and red oak. When I slabbed the
red oak logs square I salvaged whatever random sizes I could as
rectangular strips and thin planks which have been useful, but they
don't create the look of hand-forged iron.with a debarked sapling
Freeing the rocks in a post hole here requires serious iron like a
digging or San Angelo bar. One of my neighbors borrowed a Cat 316 from
work to clear and level a back yard and it was barely big enough.
Grok that. There are some large ones here, too.
I have scratches on my side from when I moved the tools out to the
pump house last month. I put my digging bar in the front and it
unbalanced the whole thing, so when I jostled things to get a leaf
rake out, I brought it down on me. The hard toothed rake took a shot
After that, the digging bar went against the corner in the pump house
and I put a pair of stabilizers on the wooden tool holder matrix.

Huh. I take it the charter allows crackpot politics, bald faced lies,
great culls and cull lists, and elaborate death threats. Because if it
didn't allow those things, then you'd be complaining about them being
posted here, right?
The problem with that old chestnut is that it sounds too much like
what it is - doodoo.
I enjoy writing like that on purpose when I'm parodying Wieber.
LOL You cared enough to type out a poorly reasoned, ill considered,
weak and whiney complaint.
I didn't think my current project was even worth mentioning, but it's
dramatically more interesting than a crude dandelion torture (not
kill) dagger. I'm going to write it up and post it somewhere a Wieber
toady would get the bum's rush.
BTW, have you done all your prepping for the death convoy tomorrow?
Not much time left! Best not to be late unless you're bringing your
own equipment, like this. http://tinyurl.com/kma8enu

Amazing Wieber might call himself when he's staying at Hotel
Econoline. Or maybe even when he's at home but has used up his daily

He doesn't. I've established that by looking up the deeds at the
assessor's on-line site for every property on the block. Wieber does
not own the lots, and he has admitted to as much. He's claimed, lamely,
to be buying some of them on supposed "land contracts", but no one
believes that. Wieber is a dummy who didn't have an operating motor
vehicle for weeks, which meant he couldn't get to any potential work.
He has no money. He isn't buying the properties on "land contracts".
They are Commodore Wieber's flotilla. Cut the crap.
I have one such boat also. A power boat. Amusingly, it is a Celebrity
21 boat, which is the same type of boat that I owned 15 years ago. I
bought it on a whim for $300 as it was in a poor condition.
I bought it 3 years ago for $300. Sold it almost immediately for $400
to a UPS guy who wanted to own a boat. The UPS guy said that he will
pick up the boat in a week or two. A year later he still did not pick
up and I moved the boat to another (temporarily defunct) business
across the parking lot. It sat there for a few more months.
UPS guy was having "temporary difficulties" getting the boat moved,
until the rotten tires of the trailer disintegrated completely.
Fast forward, a few months after that he was asked by the land owner
to have the boat moved. At this point he asked me if I would take the
boat back for free.
I said yes and the boat is now sitting in my warehouse yard , waiting
to be parted out. I think that it has a good motor, a mercuiser with
