    ...I'm gettin' drunk....I'm feelin' mellow... Actually, I'm enjoying a fine craft brew at my favorite watering hole to celebrate still being alive. The wife was out all day with her sister, our daughter and our granddaughter having a girls' day out, so I decided to take the opportunity to do tackle a small electrical chore (you can already smell the stupidity, can't you?). As part of my home automation kick I bought and installed a Ring doorbell (does video, motion sensing, etc) a while back, but it's never worked reliably due to my doorbell transformer being an old and underpowered model. So I ordered a new one that outputs more juice and have bee waiting for a weekend when it's not a billion degrees in the attic (where the old transformer is) to do the replacement. Today was just such a day. So the first dumb thing I did was decide to do electrical work in the attic while nobody else was home. The second display of stupidity was assuming that because the doorbell no longer rang after I switched off what I *thought* was the correct circuit breaker that I in fact had the correct breaker (having forgotten that one of the bits of flakiness that the doorbell exhibited was not reliably triggering the chime). The third bit of idiocy was not bothering to use my multimeter (which I had with me) to double-check that there was no current going to the old transformer....because...y'know...I was sure I'd killed the juice. So I'm in the attic straddling the opening for the ladder, having removed the wiring nuts from the old transformer...and twisting in one of the wires from the new-and-improved unit when my left arm inadvertently brushes up against the other exposed wire. Guess what? I did not, in fact, have the correct breaker turned off. But luck was with me, I guess. After determining that I still had a pulse...and once feeling had returned to my left arm..I climbed down, went to the garage and turned off every damned 15A breaker in the box. And only after I verified the efficacy of that technique with my multimeter did I continue on with the chore ate hand. And still, the doorbell doesn't do its job correctly. Nonetheless, the moral of the story is: Don't be stupid and cut corners like I did (in spite of being more than old enough to know better). But I'm not dead, so....cheers. tl;dr: Today I was stupid, but lucky. Don't be today's me.

    Are they selling more of the 12 gauge than the 20? Some info on the HR960 here, and a link for ammo (spendy): https://www.tarhunt.com/hr-20ga-bad-news/ https://www.tarhunt.com/product-category/ammo/tarhunt-20ga-schrifle/ TarHunt has been around for a while... Used to see quite a few of their ads ... Wondered if they were still out there. Found their niche, I guess. Thought the site might be helpful to our audience ... LOL

    LOL ... +5 Now, if I ever kill nice buck in the aftermath of a hurricane, I'm gonna name him Charlie. :-) Every year a few monsters go down because they're pushed out to the more accessible open, higher ground by rising water. It's a neat trick if you can manage it.

    I had 3 boxes of the dual bond and they are recommended and fly great, patterned in 5 shots. A buddy shoots the partition gold 3' slugs by Winchester but they are as difficult to find. I guess I'm down to those 2 rounds. I was able to buy 10 boxes of the partition gold rounds from cheaper than dirt, they didn't have the dual bond rounds. Thanks for the heads up

    I'm still pissed that Nebraska, Colorado and Missouri vacated the Big XII, does that count? These were all part of the Big 8 and have a long tradition with KU. Leaving was wrong. I'm glad that Nebraska is losing, I've always hated Missouri (any proper Kansan does - Muck Fizzou). To turn your back on your neighbors like that. I'd always liked Nebraska up until that time - lived in Lincoln for 11 years-thought highly of Tom Osborne. Now I always cheer for them to lose. The year Kansas beat them into submission in Lawrence was a happy day for me. I still have and will take to the grave, the ticket stub from that game. I watched the elitist NU fans filing out of the game at the 3rd quarter. Nebraska fans always prided themselves on how they support the team win or lose. B.S. Pour me another pint Swampy, we may be here awhile.
