And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Doing it the hard way - or - why power tools were invented
Was working above 11,000 elev. on restoring an old mine building...step through a sidewall 3-stories up to bolt the end of structural plate and stood on top of a massive timber post...look down with my headlamp and see the top edges were chamfered! Gotta love that level of careful craftsmanship to keep the ends from splitting during transport and handling (and more so, because no one would ever see it once in place).ReplyDelete
