Just for Dbl.....

The missus and I finally got a chance to do something for us today, so took a trip to Duluth to see the air show. Clicked about a thousand, and haven't had a chance to go through everything, but quickly picked a few to give Dan a little taste. All with the Canon 40D and 100-400 mm. ISO 400, and had Tv set at 1/1600.

Cool for lil' ol' me, great stuff Ken. I heard it was a bit wet up there Saturday. Looks like Sunday was the day to go! The Angels shots are fantastic especially the last one! And of course the Bulldogs F-16.

Looks like a great day to be doing two of my favorite things...photography and flying! Throw in a fishing trip on the river and you could make it a perfect day! Thanks Ken!

NIce Angels Pics. No Air show in Fargo this year for some reason so I kinda missed out since I am not going to Osh Kosh this year.

.......so sad... ^$#%^4doller gallon@#$@%^...70doller campsites%^*&%^&*lost my seat in a restored conny$%^&*&%.....

Nice Shots though with that 100-400. I have some good shots I took before I bought my 100-400L from last year. I am going to have to dig them up and see what I was missing from last year with my normal zoom.

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
