The Milan's cathedral: Il Duomo

Started in the 14th century and still under construction after over 500 years, remember this 12 days from now.

God bless us all.

That is a beautiful cathedral but to be honest I find more peace on a pristine body of water at sunrise or a crisp fall day in the woods. Now I'm not against churches I sing in the choir and spend probably 5 hours a week in one. I just feel a lot more spirtual in the outdoors.

What ever works for you is what works for you. I'll agree that watching the sunrise over a flock of decoys, or the smell of a bon fire on a cool autum evening, or sitting on the ice watching the sunset with a line in the water is about as close to Heaven on Earth a guy can get.

Valv, when I was in the Navy and travelling all over the place, I saw this cathedreal. It's awe inspiring to say the least.

I don't understand the 12 days from now thing. Please explain.

9-11? Sadly, I had to think about it for a while. "Never forget".

I agree Val, we saw the Duomo and a number of other cathedrals of equal majesty when we were in Europe last year. They truly are amazing buildings. Its hard to even comprehend all of the history that has happened in and around many of these beautiful churches.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
