"Are you using a box spring? or just the slats for mattress support?
If a box spring - then the slats can be quite wide. Otherwise, I have typically seen 3 inches - but using 1x3 boards (or even thinner) with a center support. "

"For what it is worth, many Orthodox Jews (and Christians) would disagree with your interpretation of the language and intent of 19:28.
But then, I suspect that is just the beginning of where they would disagree - so, ymmv.

Te aves Baxtalo, I was discussing the use of Gypsy as a Slur and though raised where it was I fear I've become desensitized to it as the infantry turned it to a nickname. How do you feel about it in your life?
Thank you! ^^ though im still rather on the fence of atheism or believing in something. So agnostic might be the way i go. In either case. Thank you an i shall look around, as this is MUCH better then facebook, as this has more a purprose.
Incidentally, nobody runs me off. But I had developed the attitude that I was just going to continue to tell off anybody who wanted to fence with me, and for me that is a very unhealthy attitude. The whole thing had gotten out of control and I had nothing to prove to anyone, anyway. As for presenting facts, I cited a very good book on the subject. If you have a real interest, and are not just on a mission to debunk everything you hear, that would be one I would start with.
Liam, I've had this same experience in other skeptics' groups. They generally exist only to belittle others' beliefs. I've said everything I had to say on the matter, except that based on overwhelming facts, including radar imaging, radiation readings, testimony by otherwise unimpeachable sources (military, police, pilots, etc), and reams of documentation of people describing the same types of craft, I can only conclude that something is going on. I just want to know what it is, and to have people say that all that doesn't even exist, well, it just makes me want to throw my hands up and say "whatever." I was only trying to make conversation, not convince you or anybody else of anything, especially when your minds are clearly already made up. Finally the negativity was just too much of a waste of my time. No hard feelings. I would've sent you a personal message, but it won't work for me and nobody seems to want to fix it.
Thanks for the welcome and taking the time to coment on the photo, it was a lot of fun the wife was good sport. I did bump the clarity a little in lightroom but didn't need to do too much post work. Radio triggerd off camera flash accounted for good detail. I do interior photography for my work as a Realtor but just hobby otherwise, how aobut yourself?

I will start off with a subject which gets most people into a heated debate. Politics. I would like to hear your slogan for running for POTUS, and what your key points would be to increase the intellectual aspects of our school systems, the military budget on how to us it elsewhere, and on punishments for anyone, ANYONE trying to undermine the constitution.Here is my slogan. Equality, Freedom, and Logic. Equality is what brings Freedom; this is Logic. The moment we cease to be illogical is the…See More
