  1. SIMmer down there, Boy. A cubic yard is 3ftX3ftX3ft or 27 cubic feet - not 300 cubic feet. Unless you just came down from your sermon on the mount.....
  2. I used to send my scrap silver printing inks to Colt Refining in southern NH. They recover all precious metals. They have a plant in Hudson just outside Nashua. They might not buy from a guy off the street and buy only from commercial sources; so, look them up on the web and give them a call. If they won't buy from you, they might give you a lead to some reputable buyers or aggregators in your area. Good luck.
  3. There is a company up here in southern Maine that specializes in wet basements and crawl spaces. Hafford Basement Systems - They put a vapor barrier in a 10 by 24 crawl space for me this summer. They used a drainage matting on the dirt floor and then installed the vapor barrier over the floor and up to near the top of the 4-foot walls. The matting is a heavy plastic sheet with half-inch dimples to raise the mat off the floor if it isn't too soft. It also provides a resilient barrier between the dirt floor and the vapor barrier to prevent sharp objects in the dirt from piercing the vapor barrier. The vapor barrier is 20 mils of plastic reinforced with a fiber netting sealed inside the plastic. This barrier is strong and resists tears and punctures if someone walks or works on it. Run a search on their name and you will find their website which has lots of information on protecting basements from water intrusion, drainage systems, vapor barriers and insulation systems. Lots of good ideas on how to do a good basement treatment.
  4. If the vine has red berries, it would be bittersweet. Nasty, aggressive, invasive plant.
  5. The density of water is 1 g/cm3, motor oil is 0.9 g/cm3 and gasoline is 0.7 g/cm3, approximately. So gasoline would float on motor oil and the oil would float on water. The only question I have is why the oil didn't mix uniformly with the gasoline? I would expect any sloshing in the tank to aid in mixing, but a heavy oil might need more active mixing. This is still a bit of a mystery.
  6. I took a walk on the beach this morning. When I got near the mouth of a river, I spied three large bass leaping out of the water and turning somersaults. When I got close I could hear them laughing and one yelled out, "Lockjaw worked! Mal has quit fishing! We are safe at last! Wheeeeee !!"
  7. Mainestriperguide.com. James Brown - local and has a good reputation.
  8. The Forcaster, southern edition, on Jan. 18th reported that the owners of the Co-op and the Rising Tide restaurant have sold the businesses to Susan Bayley Clough and her husband, Vincent. The Cloughs are the owners of Bayley's Lobster Pound, the Bait Shed and The Garage BBQ. The Town Council is expected to vote approval of the sale at its Feb. 6th meeting. Tax maps show the Town owns the land all around the Co-op businesses ( the parking lots). The Cloughs say they will use the property as it has been used historically and want to expand services to include buying steamers and aquaculture products. Some local watermen are dubious, claiming the current Clough businesses buy minimal amounts of local seafood landings. This sale looks like it has potential to stir up bad feelings among local interests. I don't know if this news could affect the surf fishing community, but some folks use the parking lots when they fish in the area. Anyone with information on potential problems with parking and access should speak up.
  9. You fellers sure do argue a lot. pie>cake>cookies, except chocolate chip.
  10. I like rabbits. I used to eat a lot of them when I ran a brace of baroo dogs. I mostly fish the shore and rocks, but I do have a kayak that I used to fish from.
  11. Are you based against cake? I've been lurking around on SOL nearly 20 years and pipe up once in a while. I don't usually comment in the Tavern because I have seen what happens to an innocent when he sticks his head through the hole in the wall. Thanks for the rock thrown at my head. I didn't notice this thread was in the Tavern. There is one in the bugs and issues forum. I thought this thread was there.
  12. Howcome it doesn't axe if we want cake or pie? Is this bias against pie??
  13. You could all wear tin foil hats shaped like the one Robin Hood wore - with a seagull feather stuck in the band.
  14. Dead ?? !! I guess I'll have to go with Emeril then -- BAM !!!
  15. Where's Anthony Bourdain when I need him ?????
