    Wonder woman bought me a dozen that are smurf blue a few years back and they are all too short to tuck in. I wear them when I know I will br welding so they are almost all gone as she won;t let me wear the ones with holes in them, they become cleaning rags when she packages parts.

    Ohh man, I am not the only one with a "hole nazi" wife. And, most of the holes start the same way, welding.
    My PPE for welding consists of hood, gloves (sometimes optional), and sandals.
    And, I suffer the same "short shirt syndrome". At 6'1" with only a 30" inseam (on my good leg), I have a very long torso. My belly is always hanging out, LOL.

    Another member of the dickydo club
    thats where your tummy sticks out farther than your dickydo.

    For years I may go a couple of weeks without seeing another human but I can't have any holes in my shirt, go figure?

    I was good about wearing a leather jacket when welding most of the time and I imagine I will be again once I get a place to do it and find out which big green box has that stuff in it.

    I did empty 3 of those big green boxes today, hot myself a half ass desk set up made from some plywood on top of a tool chest ( I do get a 8X12 office one day for my computer, books and measuring tools). I put my programming computer on it, mounted the communications hub above it on the bottom of my new shelf and got communication wires run to 3 of the VMC's, tomorrow I should be able to wire up the rest of them while I make some parts, though I suspect one of them will need replaced as it looks to be a bit short.

    Fun fact that will never be useful in any situation: The Michelin Man's name is Bibendum.

    I never have figured out why folks give their kids names they will have to spell out every time they say their name for their entire lives, of course for the michelan man I guess it don't matter. Likely as not we can't see him anymore anyhow he will get canceled like the Coke bear for being too white.

    I think it’s a lost cause. My last name is 4 letters long and is both spelled and pronounced identically to a common English word (eg. walk, desk, etc). My wife’s maiden name is 5 letters and hails from Western Europe. People still pretty routinely add extra letters to mine and misspelled and mispronounced hers until we were married. If your name isn’t John Smith or Bubba someone is going to complain.

    I bought new insulation from Wyoming, it was factory seconds with OSB glued to it and the 3 1/2 thickness was 4 to 4 1/4 and the lines were on 16" centers but started at random distances from the ends

    More drastic than that; they quit offering calendars and Christmas ornaments last fall. Been my wife's go-to family stocking stuffers for over forty years.

    Interesting about the insulation thickness. I had assumed they were held in a press to set distance until the foam set a bit. Sounds more like how they make sheet glass. Whe re they pour the molten glass at one end and lift off the solid glass at the end of a 1/4 mile long river of tin. rate of pour and spead of flow determine thickness.

    "I toured the Lathrop glass plant years ago with a class of pregnant girls."

    So your the reason teachers have to keep their hands off the students, I wondered who started that.

    I am not sure how it is made but they seem to have a lot that they sell off as seconds like perhaps it is hard to stop like a cookie factory, stop too long and spend weeks trying to get concrete cookie dough out of cement truck size mixers.

    The ground thawed out and they started hauling in dirt for the building expansion.

    Nice backhoe. Where was it made?

    Where are John Deere Tractors Manufactured? | John Deere Machinefinder

    Some years ago I looked at a Cat bulldozer here in NC, it was made in England.

    So "GI" It:

    - if it moves, salute it.

    - if it doesn't move, pick it up.

    - if you cannot pick it up? PAINT IT!

    Don't be too sure.

    I think mine were raised in Mexico, eventually smuggled into Maine from Canada.

    You'd have to be a tax expert?
