Witch had the largest Claymore explosion ever ....

Rambo 3   I had been hired to work on this film and did early pre-production , but delays  pushed the location shoot to January 1988.
It had been planned to shoot in Jan- Feb 1987, in Arizona.

I decided to opt out because I was getting married Jan 15, 1988 , when I told Bill Kenney ( production designer ) my plans.
He said , " Cool  next time then " ....

The next time was "Oscar" 
He had already completed pre-production on the west coast. I went to see Bill on location at Universal Studios, Florida.
He told me Art Dept. positions were filled except for a few set dressers & a swing gang leader to be hired locally.
I asked about the swing lead .  Bill said " I was way to valuable to tote furniture around "
I said " I had no qualms ,  I needed the work "

"He'd find me something " he said... I left kinda deflated , figured I screwed the pooch leaving Rambo early on....

True to his word , I got the call , " Rigging Grip "  That is a guaranteed credited position and assured I'd be on the show.
I had a crew of 8 men several from LA , turned out to be a very sweet gig !
 

Thanks for the coffee and the stroll down memory lane  :)

Wife and I finally got around to watching the new True Grit the other night, wasn't like the first on didn't expect it to be or want it to be, liked it a lot, don't mean I don't like the original either.   I know it upset a lot of people they remade it.

I like them both....  but having said that

Liked Wayne & Bridges

Liked Hallie  & disliked Darby  ( even like the woman that plated Maddie as an adult VS Cole Younger ending)

Liked Damon ....HATED  Glen Campbell's portrayal  (as an actor  ::)  he could play pretty good guitar that's where he should have stopped. )

Mrs Marvel & I liked them both - the John Wayne version for entertainment and the new one for being far more true to the book & era.

If they had named the new one something else, I expect they would not have gotten the "upset"

I concurr - but I think they deliberately managed Campbells portrayal as a overblown self-important type... I have to check the book and see if that was the intent there.

oops - need more coffee - yup I agree the singing campbell was not a great choice opposite the Duke....
but Damon made a great overblown self-important type true to the book...

Could be , I got 7 years out of this one, I figure it didn't owe me anything  ... not sure if HD still carries the Brand  , Home Depot does not stock it anymore...They had a Husqvarna that looks just like it  though :-\.

I bought a John Deere this time. 


My Dear Major -
I am in the market for a small tractor. i would dearly love the 40hp diesel Kabota with a front loader, but cannot justify it cost for 2.01 acres and the minimum use it would get.
I am looking for the "best bang per buck" for a small high-desert property that only needs mowing perhaps 2 or 3 times a year- over the septic drain field and to whack
down the tumbleweedy things along the front road ditch, and to haul stuff, rocks and dirt up and down the little hill, and hang either a scraper or bucket for leveling and grooming
dirt walking paths and laying and grooming gravel.

if using a yard tractor to scrape a trail would be too harsh on it, I could rent a bobcat (major overkill) and have it done in one pass...

John Deere isn't getting the  reviews like in the old days- most seem to last 5 or 7 years instead of the older models running 15 or 20 years! Obviously nothing lasts like it used to...

Soooo .... what does the collective hive mind recommend?

I went JD  but I looked at Cub Cadet...what it came down to was there John Deere dealer right here in town....

Both have heavy gauge steel decks ....  I'd steer clear of Crapsmans , Snapper , Murray , box store models 
when planets align...do the deal !

Thanks, Major!
the interweb sites suggest JD or CC may last the longest.. it seems like 500 hours is all you can expect out of them!
and that is with the so-called regularly scheduled manufacturor maintenance.

WTH is with that? change the oil & plugs? service the carb? replace any belts?

I think I need to steer clear of the low end JD, they seem to break belts
and the hydraulic drive systems look like they are worth the little extra purchase price.

And the price is the same on a JD whether I go to Lowes, Home Depot, or the dealer right down the street.
So I will try to watch for a Big Box sale

Professor from previous experiance- nothing runs like a deere. When they are running.  Yet you can’t beat the reliability of Kubota. For your acreage would you really need 40 hp?


Major2 you could have not reviewed True Grit better. Delmonico was right many hated the remake before even reviewing it. Same with remake of the Alamo. Which again I enjoyed both but the remake was better.


 Wife and I spent the morning setting up a range to shoot  shotgun and .22’s and pistols. No rifles .  Rain came and washed out day. Of course my lungs gave out also

Greetings all.

Rather subdued Independence Day here. The governor prohibited a parade, so instead we had a “protest” that included classic cars, fire trucks, mules, bagpipes and the local VFW color Guard.  The gov also prohibited a firework show, so the fire and sheriff’s departments made sure to block off Main Street so nobody could gather for the show, and dutifully set off a bunch of fireworks from various places around town to keep them out of the wrong hands.  Some local citizens volunteered to help, which they gladly accepted.

This day after has also been rather calm, the highlight being the baking of a sourdough loaf. Once it gets below 90 I’m going to take the dog for a walk.

Got sourdough rye a working, may get baked tomorrow, maybe Tuesday, see what happens. 

Not sure how to post a video here, made a short on the prove a point, a steak, sitting in it's juice, cut with a fork and then shown when cut that it is well done.   People say that you can't cook a steak beyond medium rare and not ruin it, I tell them they might not be able to but some of us can.  An old secret from the 19th Century, duplicated the famous Delmonico Steak from the old Delmonico's in New York, most people say it's just a strip loin, it is a strip loin aka New York stip but it still needs the tender loving care of a skilled and knowledgeable cook and I perfected it tonight.  wife's was between medium rare and medium, her prefered and she didn't bother putting her teeth in. ;D
