Sorry Ted but the "Depends" attack was a worthy attack to the thread, "But" it only halted the posting for around 48 hours! Guess we'll have to form a new plan!

On another note, I'm looking for a measuring tape that measures in cubits! I'm thinking I might need to build a boat!

Would you walk a mile for a Camel?

It would be very hard for a Camel to walk a mile being chocked . The 2 humpers may have an advantage doing the 2 step. But a one humper would not stand a chance.

Why not use what was used for centuries, the chain.... If it was good enough for Daniel Boon (that great surveyor of the western USA) why not use it now....

All the property deeds used to be measured with chains and links.... That way, you could use the cubits method by simply adjusting the chains...

Well, that still depends....

The blue prints only list it in cubits! I reread all of genesis so no adjusting. Besides when I've measured in links in the past someone always yells fore and throws a golf ball at us!

As I contemplate that, let me share this picture of an Agave flower that only blooms once every 12 years (or is that every 17 years?), then the plant dies.... Oh well, at least you can make Tequila with it....

I'm impressed that the power company utilized the plant to string their power line on. Then again it looks like they will have to replace the plant every 12-17 years!

I say if'n we renames thissy here thread to "Are you a thread killer Agave Flower?" we got a good chance at it dyin' off on it's own.

Fantastic .....I am in mid training right now, they have me doing flips on a trampoline.
I had a set back. Several months ago I landed on the pavement next to the trampoline and had to recooperate .I am back doing flips again. Not as easy now as if I would of been flipping at an earlier age.
Looking forward to the next level of training.

Hoping to get my first shot out of a cannon early 2017.

The cannon I pictured is in the Ringling Museum in Sarasota. Maybe they let you use it for a test ?? Note:: They had a miniature one there that you can shoot foam plugs out of. I tried it three times--all three plugs fell short of the net ? Just saying!!!
