Knob Creek Kentucky Machine Gun Shoot- Part 1

I spent last weekend, April 11-13 at Knob Creek Range Semi-annual Machine Gun Shoot  in Kentucky (semi-annual means it is held twice a year- I had to look it up - wasn't sure in the difference with bi-annual). It is held in April and again in October.

The event includes an all day machine gun shoot for club members and a number of gun rentals at the two separate ranges.

‘Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present .’

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled. If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy.

Incredible Company: Moon Express

http://www.moonexpress.com/

This is an excellent company that is making the future happen now-  In Huntsville, Alabama.

China recently landed something on the moon.  I see a future where Astronauts, Cosmonauts, and  Taikonauts meet on the moon and shake hands.

The future is now.  Now to the details:

Are you in Northern Alabama.  

A friend of mine is looking to hire someone with mechanical experience at Moon Express (www.moonexpress.com). They need to be good with their hands and they prefer someone with welding, plumbing, and mechanical experience. If you're smart, a quick learner, and are interested (or know someone that is) send me a message. Work will be full-time and will be about 60 hours week with overtime pay. Need to be available on weekends.

Please tell'em Frank sent you.

There is work to do.

Update: I actually found an underemployed TIG welder with 11 years experience and I have past his information along.  Let's wish them luck.

What I want.

It is important to know what you want and then let it be known,

I want 10% body fat with 300 lb. bench press, 20 pull-ups and 400 lb. squat.

I want to do a 6 minute minute mile for three miles every day.

I want peaceful safe restful sleep every night surrounded by love.

I want to drink clean water and eat food, mostly green, not too much.

I want to own my own company that does good and employs 10,000 Engineers.

I want a good woman to love, lots of healthy beautiful children that continue to do good.

I want to leave a cleaner better planet for their kids and leave better kids than I am that live a happy safer life

I want to be surrounded by friends and make news friends and do good every day.

And I want everyone else to have what they want too.

A short quick return- Crossbow vs Tank

I haven't posted in quite a while and a lot has happened in my life.  I really miss it and I will return soon.

So let me start with a quick short one from The Walking Dead Mid-season 4 episode.

How do you fight a tank with a crossbow?



Daryl Dixon, that's how!!!
