Sorry for the stupid question, but why would something like this: Solar Appliances - Unique Off-Grid Appliances be called a solar appliance, if it's still powered by technically ANY power source?

Is it because it requires very low wattage?

Another great example of Muslims spreading peace and goodwill towards men in the name of Islam.

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.

Today we pause to remember the 220 Marines, 18 U.S. Navy sailors and 3 U.S. Army soldiers killed in the attack....

I recently Discovered Bore Tech's rifle cleaning products.
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...

Okay! So after many requests for a sequel to Alea Jacta Est, I've finally started putting words to...I was going to say paper, but I guess the screen is more accurate. Anyway, here's chapter one of the sequel...I don't really have a working title right now. So I'm just calling it "The Sequel" until a name comes to me. :D Thanks very much everyone for all the encouragement to pick up the story...

Google Maps has a feature that lets people type in a home address and view a photograph of the front of the house. People can also move their cursor so they can "walk" down the street and view other homes. However, some people consider this a violation of privacy and do not want their homes on a public website. Google Maps will usually only remove images that are contain people, animals or offensive material in a photo. You may be able to remove the photo of your home from Google Maps, but...

Well, I do several things.
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.

Dungeons and Dragons, tactical board games, a couple PC games

But now I've gotten into Radio Control Aircraft. I have a Bf 109 with a 55" (1400mm) wingspan.

Hi, everyone.

This book – The Best Laid Plans – is the third book in the Bookworm series, following Bookworm and The Very Ugly Duckling. This novel will probably make next to no sense unless you’ve read the first two, but just in case I’m wrong ...

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....

Instant replay, almost.

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?

Not to worry it had been moved by the wrecker the LEOs had called after thay handcuffed the drunk who hit it.

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

So there I was asleep on the 15th floor.

Way back in the 1950's a neighbor cast his fence posts out of concrete and rebar, mainly to save money. The posts were deeply set, so after he passed and the land was divided and sold, the new owner wound up leaving them in place when he planted his hedge. Fast forward thirty some years when a speeding drunk who was fleeing from police decided to attempt to drive through said hedge and happened to locate one of those posts with his F-350..

I always post my food. Would love to see what you guys are eating!

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.


And served.

You can add me to the list of monkeys who have gone primal. I have been watching the progress of the different members here who are on it. Quiq's story inspired me the most and really got me to thinking seriously about it. I ordered all the books and are reading them now. But from what I read so far and what I have seen on here I got started right away.

This is my testimony. I have battled my weight all my life. I always blamed it on metabolism. I had a best friend growing up who was skinny...

If you are doing PB and losing weight , lets keep a running total of combined weight loss and see where we end up in a year?
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.

As our busy lives tend to consume us, many of us never have time or make time for hobbies. But I know before becoming a professional Mom and employee there were things that I enjoyed and did. I liked sewing. Different stiches, mending and making things from pot holders to quilts. When making something you do not have to go to the local fabric store to get your material. Scraps of clothing and items, sheets, old blankets- if it is material most certainly it has a second use.

I posted quite a bit of information about this subject on another board. There was a lot of interest in it and I was asked to continue it here. I didn’t want to repeat already posted material so everything here will be new, unposted (by me), material.

A man in a Florida supermarket tries to buy half a head of lettuce.

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, -----

As he finished his sentence, he turned around & found the man standing right behind

I wanted to see if fellow Monkeys could share there favorite quotes on interrelated topics such as Liberty-Freedom, the Constitution - Bill of Rights, Unalienable Rights, the Second Amendment, Patriotism, Survivalism-Prepping, Economics, etc. The "status updates" Tweets on our Profile Page are limited to 140 characters which doesn't allow for much profundity.

So, here are a few of my favorites:

Here's mine, 04 Triumph Sprint ST. GenMar risers, throttlemeister, and a battery tender, other than that, box stock.

If we get enough interest, we'll set this up as a forum. For now, it's just a sticky for a month or so to guage interest.

The first chapter of a book I'm working on.

"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"
