On this day in 1983, two trucks carrying explosives blew up two barracks buildings in Beirut, Lebanon resulting in the deadliest attack on Marines since Iwo Jima in 1945.

I have a magnum rifle that the accuracy was dropping off slowly.
I use always use Sweets 762, Hops copper remover and Barns copper remover also use regular Hops.
After all of those used on this barrel and the patches coming out looking clean the next day my shipment of boretech products arrived.
I ordered their bore guide and a custom Length cleaning rod so I don't have to remove my muzzle brake. While I was there eye balling their...

Read a lot - some fantasy stuff, but mostly WWII history and most recently German history from 1870 to 1938. Big WWII nut here. And I read and write about religion.

In Book One, Elaine (a meek library assistant) ran afoul of a spell that decanted the acuminated knowledge of the Great Library into her head, making her the Bookworm ... and the target of a very old plot, spearheaded by the enigmatic Witch-King....

Fast asleep along a well known swampy river.
Awoke and checked out of that Silver Palace.
All seemed well.
UNTIL the vehicle was seen.
FUNNY! I said to my self, I know I pulled stright in when I parked.
Now the vehicle was at a 30 degree angle?

All this happened a while I slept but the sun was now in full bloom and the glass was all swept up....

PINNACLE: BROKEN ARROW LOST/ By CT Horner
Last night, I made chicken tikka masala and saffron rice for the monkeys. Somehow, they are able to put away way more than I think is possible.
Saffron rice, before and after cooking.
My "curry" paste, made to rub into the chicken.
Chicken just about done.

When you post to this thread add your lbs lost to the total from the previous post. Then put it in the bottom of your post so its easy for the next to take that and add their pounds loss.
If your not doing the program and just want to add to the conversation, just take the total and put in your post so its current.

The very young produce assistant tells him that they sell only whole heads of lettuce.
The man persists, and asks to see the manager. The boy says he'll ask his manager about it.
Walking into the back room, the boy said to his manager, -----

The m/c shop
"Should I start from the front, or the back?" I asked myself. Pondering the mechanics for a moment, I made up my mind. I rolled the corpse over, face down, pulled my bowie from it's sheath on my belt, put the point between two cervical vertebra and proceeded to remove the head from the body.
"What in the Hell are you DOING!" Frank yelled at me.
"I'm cutting the head off this corpse, as you can plainly see"
"What the f**k for, have you lost your...
