In my next house I want a fireplace or wood stove that will actually heat the whole house and a hand pump at the kitchen sink. I've experienced two incidence of power out during the winter lasting more than 24 hours, and since both my heat and water pump are electric I had neither of these conveniences...and the fireplace in the house won't heat fershit. Good thing I have the kerosene heater.

When I first bought my house I tried the fireplace route.  It took more heat out of the house up the chimney than it put in.  IOW it was a net loss.  And because it wasn't a standard fireplace I could not get an insert for it.  I now use it for gas logs with the flue closed in case we lose power.

82 >>>This is a reason I will not get a CCW. They have become public records in some States. . . .When we lived in Connecticut you had to get a CCW if you wanted to go to the gun range or actually buy a hand gun. It got tagged to your drivers license and your car(s) license plates. If the cops ran your DL or plates they knew you had a CCW. Here in Kentucky you can get one but you really don't need it. Open carry and virtually no restrictions on what you can carry concealed or in plain sight in your car.

I often get 1 day temporary fishing licenses down in GA.  It is probably possible to get a temporary hunting license in SC.   However there is still the problem of finding a place you can hunt.  The hunting clubs have leased almost all the lands,  The last place I saw a bunch of deer crossing the road (had to stop my truck) was near federal lands.  You can not hunt there.

A little glimmer of hope from the underground. 

A kid in my son's third grade class in suburban Detroit shared with his buddies that he killed a racoon with his BB gun and then skinned it. The kid's father -- an orthodontist -- confirmed it.  Kid's social stock went through the roof.   To hell with Minecraft.  In that class, most every boy now wants to bag a varmint of his own to get a trophy skin.

91 @58 He probably did under the mistaken assumption that he had nothing to fear from police officers being a law abiding citizen. This is not meant to be a rant against LEOs but they are not on your side they are agents of the state. If he did not submit to a search of his vehicle a K-9 unit would have been dispatched to give a false hit on the vehicle giving them probable cause to search the vehicle.

Happy New Year to you too, and I've entered into the gentle partying mode, out for dinner,   and then home to have some drinkies while watching the fireworks at midnight

 

My New Years Eve party days  -  falling over,  losing my shoes and one earring,   and ending up at some party in some stranger's place are  long gone... just memories   *thank goodness *

 

What do I say now? 

 Get off my lawn!!!!

There is a video out there somewhere that a gun-toting lawyer put out regarding searches and firearms, in the video he had a cop who told the audience just that...they are not your friends, they are looking for evidence to put you in jail with.

Almost started a riot on my own because of the asshole hippies and overall rudeness of the d bags shopping there. We get to the register and the bagger hippie-chik asks, "paper or plastic?" I asked her, "Which one rapes Gaia the worst?" She replied, "Plastic". I said, "Plastic then".

107 @96 There is a multipart YouTube series where a lawyer and a LEO give a speech that police are not your friend, they are not in the justice business all they care about is closing the case. In fact they make the case multiple times that it is never a good thing to actually talk to a police officer. Now obviously laws have to be enforced or there would be anarchy but there also has to be a recognition that law enforcement has become a tool for harassing citizens in the guise of public safety.

Linking the carry permit to your driver's license and thus to your auto tags is just another little step towards plain old "common sense gun control regulation". Just wait until the national DoJ network of license plate scanners is linked to the GPS unit in your car, you won't even be able to make it to the canoe trip.

In retrospect, I don't think getting a permit is a good idea because every data base you are in is a potential way for the uber-state to screw you.  Of course, I no longer have much faith in the utility of the "Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six!" rule either, since roughly half the twelve will have voted for Obama.

Probably a  Crossman .166.  If you pump those up you can get some power.  You can also get lead pellets for them.

I was already in an AoSHQ mood of spitting upon my hands. If those cloth bags are so good for the earf, they should be giving them away. Especially since they put their advertising on them. You want me to carry your billboard? Pay me. Sound familiar? Trucker Gimme caps. Ball caps were free. Trade off? You wore their advertising.

116 @108 They have been trying to do that in NJ, link your hand gun permit to your drivers license under the theory that cops gotta be safe. I posed the question to several state senators, how many cops have been killed in the state of NJ by people who legally possessed the gun they used to commit the crime? I went further and asked, how many convicted murderers in the state of New Jersey, who used a gun as their weapon, legally possessed the weapon? Shockingly I have not heard back from any of them.

Amazing how critical the damper control is on a wood stove.  I am fighting with an old one as we speak that seems to always need tinkering with (almost impossible to get a long burn and very easy to have it get very very hot).   I think Regency is still being made (they have a spiffy web-site) but they look pretty good.

I wouldn't either for several reasons:



You can't eat coon, it is really crappy.


I like coons they are almost like playful kittens (as long as they are outside.


And shooting them even with a pumped up Crossman is cruel because slow lingering death.



If those kids want to hunt something with a pellet rifle in Detroit let them shoot rats.  When I was a kid we used to do that in the creek than ran though our back yard.

121 A quick recap of wood-heat experiences for GGE. I've been at it for 40 years.
We started out with a Franklin stove that Dad found used for supercheap. It was impressive as hell at first, but laughable in its inefficiency compared to even the most rudimentary "modern" (1970's) airtights. We ended up with a Timberline, which by dumb luck incorporated a smoke-routing shelf which transfers a lot of heat and also makes particulates precipitate back into the fire-box. Most all use this now. Don't even bother with older airtights that don't have this.

Dad had a great pal who was a master plumber, and got him to bend up a double coil to heat the house-heating hydronics water. Wow. You had to throw one hell of a wabash in there, but it heated the whole house. Trouble was, the temperature gradient was enough to make the coil act as a pollution control, and it quickly accumulated a thick layer of creosote, which wouldn't even chisel off. To make this work, you'd need a free-flowing water jacket around the firebox to pre-heat the return water before it went to the coil. Someday I will do that.

The Magic-Heat appliance, which places a set of air tubes with a fan in the stack, is a wonderful invention. Brush and blow the tubes in the off-season, and about once a winter you'll have to fine-tune the fan blades to stop them ting-ing. Metric hammer, about watchmaker size. Best single addition you can make.

What has really worked for us is the "High-V" A/C system we had to put in (because hydronic heat does not have ducts). There two main return lines. In winter, I put a rug over the upstairs one, forcing all air through the big vent right behind the woodstove. Warm air gets pumped all through the house. In an emergency, you can keep the whole place warm that way, but usually I just use it as a booster when outside is single-digit.

I wouldn't connect that ducting direct to a firebox jacket, like they did on coal furnaces, because there isn't a good enough diagnostic for a CO leak. Make sure the big-end of the high-V tubing is metallic, not mylar. You quickly learn to open the damper before opening the firebox doors, because one mistake and you'll smell woodsmoke all day. Good news is, a furnace filter upstream of the air-handler makes sure no actual smoke residue gets circulated. There.

122 It looks like Lady Rose from Downton Abbey is the live-action Cinderella. Hmm. I'm sure the film will be lousy with grrl power. Maybe Prince Charming will be played by Lena Dunham. Another day, another two parties. Afternoon tea for the olds and then evening cocktails and crown roast and Veuve Cliquot. Be very glad to get back to "ordinary time." Except for the work part. Time to tidy up and vacuum, except Kitty is purrsnoring in my lap, so I'm trapped. Purrsnoring is this cute little gurgling purr she makes when she seems to be really asleep and is maybe dreaming a little bit. So cute!

123 IF you can get to the inside of the stovepipe section that has the damper in it, try wiring the handle to the "flapper." They are famously floppy. If the damn thing isn't set where the handle says it is, you'll never get good control.

Coon is fine eatin if you fix it right. Cleaning is critical. I wonder if the "BB gun" was an air rifle. There is a difference. A decent air rifle would be sufficient -- provided you had a good hit. You can drop a bison at 30 yds with a Quackenbush.
