    Sad to say this is not a joke

    A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington , DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage.

    Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.

    The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

    Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.

    A reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do in my whole life.'

    The Harley rider replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.'

    The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page...
    So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?'

    The biker replies, 'I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican.'

    The journalist leaves.

    The following morning the biker buys the paper to see news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:


    U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT
    AND STEALS HIS LUNCH

    It is also the lead story on the AP wire, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, HuffPo, CNN, and MSNBC

    That pretty much sums up the media's approach to the news these days.

    Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
    by cwmagee
    A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

    Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
    That is...

    The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

    Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

    Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
