Bizer's Rock

That's reminiscent of Bizer's story about Bizer's Rock, located west of the Graveyard and about midway between Pistol and Spectacle (roughly). Bizer lost a lower unit to this rock and has since shown...

Where it all started

This is where it all started for me. My mom's aunt and uncle, Millie and Jim Foster were Scottish immigrants, and I believe it was in the 1930's that Uncle Jim and Aunt Millie took a train from...

Learn from your mistakes

As a kid, my parents told me no one is perfect, and it's ok to make a mistake. The key was to learn from our mistakes.

That may be easy to do as an individual, maybe not so easy as a group (as...

Well done

Well done, TiltonBB. I have seen most of these on FB, but when they get gathered into one place and get read over morning coffee, well, it's a good way to start the day. :)

When I had a Merc Optimax on my 1st boat, I had smart gauges installed. Two features I liked was the fuel flow meter and the fuel used. The former helped find the right throttle and trim settings...

At least two here

Hillcountry, we have at least two coming to our feeder, both males trying to stake out their territory. We think we've seen at least one female.

One at the feeder right now.

A couple of years back, my boat needed the gimbal replaced. In the spirit of "while you're at it", along with the gimbal, replaced the bellows, the impeller, and the 3 (I think) anodes on my...

Thanks Samiam

Samiam, I totally agree and can totally relate. I remember being taught by my father that a man was no better than his word, and that a handshake was as good as a written contract.
