Why? Because without tradesmen, we would be in the dark ages, and if we dont encourage our kids to work with their hands and their brains, we will soon be there. The Dark Ages that is. I am a heavy…Continue

Jacob Salber replied to Chris Hamm's discussion Who Wears a Watch Anymore?
"I have worn a watch for so long now that its neither part of my dress or a mere time keeper, it is a part of ME. I feel very odd if I dont have the old Timex strapped on. Plus, Its easier just to glance down and check the time instead of having…"

"I plan to, Jacob. Our country is becoming flooded with educated stock clerks because schools encourage EVERYONE to get a bachelor's degree, which has created a glut of educated young people competing for the same jobs.  It may be the right…"

Encourage your children to learn a trade

Why? Because without tradesmen, we would be in the dark ages, and if we dont encourage our kids to work with their hands and their brains, we will soon be there. The Dark Ages that is. I am a heavy equipment mechanic by trade, and it has supported me and my family for the last 10 years. It also opened up opportunities that other wise I would'nt have been able to take.

Profile Information

Interests
First and foremost, my kids are the most interesting part of my life. I enjoy tinkering in the garage with whatever the days projeect might be. Cars, motorcycles, bikes. I am a firm believer in fine Kentucky bourbons and cold beers enjoyed in the company of close freinds.
Books
I am usually drawn to Hunter S. Thompson, but I will read just about anything. I recently started reading my old Calvin and Hobbes books from my childhood with my daughter, and I find them more enjoyable now than ever before. Very funny and full of little life lessons.
Movies
Hands down, Raising Arizona has to be my all time favorite. Anything by Tarantino (of course), good comedies. Yes, I enjoy movies.
Music
I am really into the Alabama Shakes right now, but I enjoy most types of music. I grew up on classic rock and 90's country, but my teenage years were spent blowing my ears off with the like of The Misfits, Social Distortion, Johnny Cash, The Murder City Devils. Things like that. When I am feeling a bit nostalgic, I will play any one of these and jam out in the garage.

I've carried this as a montra with me at work and in life. Actions always speak louder than words.

Penelope replied to Penelope's discussion Doesn't seem quite classical in the group Latin
""Found" a similar construction.  Not classical: Sit laus plena, sit sonora,sit iucunda, sit decoramentis iubilatio.Dies enim solemnis agitur,in qua mensae prima recoliturhuius institutio."

"Did anybody expect a Libertarian platform having a more than tenuous connection with reality?  Even the NPR sound bites from the Libertarian convention had less connection with reality than Rand Paul on a bad day."
