    I think most sodas are between 150 and 200 calories a pop. And I like AMP and NOS also, which are closer to 280 a pop. And then throw in the $1 large fountain pops at McDonalds and it's a LOT of calories.

    I quit drinking Soda 7 days ago. It's a vice of mine, usually drink 3 or 4 can's a day minimum, sometimes more. In 7 days I've lost 6 lbs, and that is the only change I've made, That's cutting out from 1000 to 1500 calories a day. :-)

    End of June and it 47 last night :woot: . Unbelievably cool weather. I'm doing overnight security at our music boosters fundraiser so I got to really enjoy it.

    I believe this site should be available as long as humanly possible (At least until the economic collapse brings us back to the stone age for a wile). But the longer it stays up, the more benefit it does the human race. (Or at least those literate enough to use a search engine. LOL).

    What password issue are you having trouble resolving? I can see whats up with that. I still have a DB backup running nightly for the site, so no matter what the content will always be safe. (It's not the full backup that hostgator has, so their backup will allow the site to be restored more quickly without jumping through the SMS hoops). I would be willing to throw some money at the site to help cover the hosting. If we could take up donations, I bet we could defer the cost pretty reasonably. Doc

  10. Handgun thoughts

    Going strictly off the and 92, the just feels better. The edges of the grips are rounded a bit better on the , plus the scallops on the just slide your thumb and hand into a perfect grip without any thought. The Beretta still has the same panel type grips on a straight rounded back-strap. Both are nearly identical in size so hand size I don't think you'd notice a size difference. But comfort is night and day. (Again, this is the 92 vs the , not the 92A1 vs mod 2 as I don't have either available). But they both are similar enough to their previous models to make the comparison fairly close.

    Your family will be in my thoughts Swede.
  12. Handgun thoughts

    I was in the Army when they switched from the 1911 to the Beretta. Having spent a lot of time on both platforms, I never cared for the Beretta as much. It's a good gun, but it just never felt quite "Right" in my hands. On the contrary, I bought my wife an subcompact, and after shooting hers, I was so impressed by the weapon that instead of buying one of the other 3 or 4 pistols I had narrowed my choice down to after a year of research and shooting, I bought the for myself. I have not had the chance to handle either the A2 or the Mod 2, but based on the changes from previous versions of each, The Beretta doesn't seem to have changed much except for the internal frame buffer, time will tell if that's a big deal or not, but rounding the trigger guard seems like a step backward to me, particularly if the guard wasn't increased in size to handle gloves. The didn't change much to the Mod 2, (Which is a good thing, hard to improve on the platform). The updated factory sights are probably the best new feature on the Mod 2. I was one of those guys who didn't want an , I wanted a 1911 or an S&W M&P, but once I shot that , I changed my mind. Now take that with a grain of salt, I love the Sub compact (With a pinky extension it fits my hand perfectly and I have big paws), I didn't care for the grip on the full sized quite as much as the subcompact, but I had no complaints either. I don't think you can go wrong with either, but my preference definitely sits with platform.

    By Refreshments, he means the refreshing breeze produced by the rescue helicopters rotors. LOL I'd love to go, but we have a school event and transportation is just out of the question right now. It is a great opportunity though. Thanks

    Yep, I used to use weatherbug and weather underground, but I just like the actual current stuff that comes in from my own back yard. Living in a valley of sorts next to the river, our weather can be 100% different than the weather just a mile away. My remote died a while ago. I still have the indoor station running. But no outdoor stuff.

    WOW, You can start your own weather channel with that bad boy. :woot:

    I had one of the dedicated hardware units with remote that I ran in my office with the remote out the back door. It worked OK, but limited data. I like the new versions that include so much more data. That is slick. What model is it?

    Yep, My primary MOS in the Army was radio communications, but I let it slide after I got out. A buddy who is a major ham guy (Used to teach radio at Fort Gordon where I did my AIT) talked me into getting back into it along with another guy from my unit who lives in IL and stayed with comms and retired out of the military. So about 6 years ago I went in and took the test and got my Tech license, (may go for general some day if I ever get the time to study) KD0KYI, I only have a cheap Baofeng right now. Programmed to the local emergency freq's mostly for scanning and the SAR/CERT freqs, but the team is down due to no funding/insurance and has been for more than 3 years now, so effectively, we no longer have an active SAR/CERT team, just strictly ICS Certified volunteers on phone/radio call. I picked up a 4 pack of 16 channel radios for my son to use for a school project, (Had to program them down to just the FRS freq's to keep it legal for him to use). Now that I have them back, I'll reprogram them to the emergency freq's and the SAR/CERT freq so there are extras for volunteers during emergencies. I'll reprogram the radio with the repeater freq's one of these days and we can give it a shot some time. Would be good practice to bounce off the repeaters. Until then, I'm hoping to get some time to play with the echolink software while I'm in my office. Now if only I can find the time, "Time", what the heck is that!! LOL

    I live for rain. I wish I didn't have to work today, I'd be out enjoying it. Cold and wet and I still love it.
