Holy smoke! Good way to incinerate a nice winter pelt! :eek:

Well, we don't kill them for the pelts, we kill them to get rid of them. They're a predator and pose a danger to a lot of livestock and wild animals that are actually beneficial to crops (like rabbits). Also, at this time of year, when they start to starve because of the snow, they can pose a threat to people as well. That's why, for the most part, it's always open season on coyotes in Illinois. I don't think you can hunt them during the deer shotgun seasons, but that might be it.

It was just a generic episode. One skit about She-Ra having her period. Another about the Smurf village flooding, in a Hurrican Katrina style tragedy, and Gargamel finally gets to see what Smurfs taste like only to realize that they taste like crap.

Meesa back! Mrs. TI7 had report cards due for her little third graders, zo.....she's monopolized the computer 'til now.

BigB: .308 ought to eradicate the little varmints just fine, then. I live on the outskirts of my town and we have coyotes pass through the neighborhood frequently. Before more houses started filling in the neighborhood, we had all sorts of critters in our yards (kit foxes, possum, skunk, bobcat, even bears were seen close to the neighborhood one year!). Still do to a point. When new neighbors would move in and brought their cats with them....well.....Kitty sometimes didn't come back thanks to Wiley working the neighborhood. Like you said, in lean years, we're careful when out walking, especially in the evenings.

no, but it's about a 3-5 minute drive, depending on how many red lights I hit. After my divorce, I choose the apt as one close to work and with easy interstate access. Being without my car this last month, it's been nice living close when I have to walk to work (20 minutes because there is no straight line route), but as cold as it is, coworkers have offered and been picking me up on their way to work.

Only thing I would be nervous about is rain. We can wear jeans to work, but has to be a nice shirt and nice shoes, with casual Fridays. Of course, I would also be nervous about getting my bike stolen again, without a garage and don't know how I feel about keeping it in my apartment, as I'm sure the tires could get dirty/muddy.

I live in a rented house. I have a garage, so storing my bike is no problem. When I do ride it to work, I bring it back to my bike station, where I can tune it during my break time, if needed. I assemble bikes for my Wal-Mart store, so we have the tools to fix it if I need.

You have any suggestions for a good, cheap... no inexpensive, bike? I mean, I don't want to spend say, $150 for a so-so bike if I could get one for $200 that was significantly better. I'm not looking to buy a $500+ and really don't want to spend $400, but hopefully would find a bike I'd be happy with in the $150-$300 range (but would love it if it stayed in the lower $200 range).

I got my self a 26 inch Schwinn bike at Wal-Mart for $150.00. It works rather well, probably a lower end Schwinn, but it works for me. Unfortunatley it looks like we are not going to see any more Schwinn bikes, at least not for now. Last summer we had three different models of Scwinn bikes, but this Fall we had none on the bike mod. I love assembling the Schwinns, as they come in a good sturdy carton, so little adjustment needed when pitting one together. I would stay away from some of the lower end bikes at Wal-Mart, the ones that are around $50 to $70, as these are good if you only ride on a rare occasion, not so good if you are riding it every day.

One quick way to find out is to click on your name above your avatar, then click on your "profile" in the drop-down menu. Then look at the top of the page at the address (URL) and the last number you see is your member number (1606), or, at least the order in which you signed up with SSG.

You can check any member's number that way.

No, no, collecting Star Wars makes you a geek not a dork. Not knowing what the capital of Texas is (it ain't Dallas or even Houston) makes you a dork. Collecting Smurfs just makes you a whipping boy for Star Trek fans who are otherwise the lowest form of geekdom. :thumbsup:

After we got married, my wife told me she used to play D&D. To make matters worse, her had was the Dungeon Master for her group. I knew she was a band geek (and had blossomed out of it,) but I didn't know how deep the adolescent nerdiness went. Now, anytime she says anything about my star wars collection I just roll a 20 sided die at her and she forgets about everything else.
