    Need block wall done (block wall quotes)

    I had a guy put one up around the backyard of a house I bought in late 2019. I'm located in south Scottsdale area, and not sure where he's based so not sure about travel to Superior. That being said, he did an EXCELLENT job! Strait, level, sturdy, and clean all the way around. I'll pm you his contact info. S.

    Nick, this point is VERY valid and resonated with me. Several years ago I was very actively involved with the ADA (Youth Chair, setting-up and running the youth camps & functions, etc.). Though the club in general had positive intentions and did a lot of good, I ended-up being a little disgruntled and faded out of active participation based on this type of theme. There were a couple of occasions where certain board members took a position on various topics 'on behalf of the club' that appeared to me to be a bit controversial and shaky. There was one particular time when there was an article written by a well known board member in the regular ADA magazine, and it included fairly scathing commentary regarding one of the other clubs in the state. At the next board meeting I brought it up and asked if that was the position of the club, or just an editorial from the one board member, and my concern was basically brushed-off. Bottom line is, if your point regarding folks knowing where their donation dollars go and what position they are 'supporting' with those dollars is spot on!!! Donors beware!

    No more shopping at Trader Joes

    You thought Arizona was "open" because Ducey lifted the mask and occupancy restrictions? lol I didn't realized we had closed. Yup, it's a free country, indeed. They have the freedom to require people to wear masks. Yawn....

    Black River Small Mouth

    Thatโ€™s a great report Phil, thanks! My sons and I are going to head up there in two or three weeks. Fingers crossed! S.

    Black River Small Mouth

    With the general lack of rain/snow, I'm thinking the roads will be just fine. Likely just the usual rocky-bumpy ride.

    Margo Fire near Dudleyville

    Yep, I hope they can get this thing contained. Looks like itโ€™ll end up being fairly small in terms of acreage, but I fear the impact looks like itโ€™ll be fairly significant in terms of homes etc. I grew up in Kearny, and the kids from Dudleyville got bussed there to go to school so I know some of the families in that area. Word is that some have lost homes. Sucks. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

    Motivate Ducey

    Yup, we all need to watch-out for how that plays out. Also, the bill that Ducey just signed will ONLY matter if the above mentioned point is deemed to be 'unconstitutional'. That determination is left up to Federal courts, of course up to and including the Supreme Court (LONG and drawn-out process to get to that determination...). Hence I think the AZ bill is really just sort of window dressing with a very low likelihood of ever having any practical enforcement.

    ๐Ÿ‘ Myself and family took the plunge as well. If it was just me, I might not have done it (Needles are one of my phobias....). My older brother & sisters though, whom I'm VERY close too, are all totally onboard with it. Sort of figured I would go with it for the 'greater good' of my family. We all spent Easter brunch together, and it felt good to crowd around a table full of food together again! As with lots of things, just a personal choice.

    Motivate Ducey

    I was sort of thinking the same thing when I first read the bill. The wording 'unconstitutional gun laws' leaves it very much up to interpretation. I like the spirit behind Ducey signing it, but the practical applicability of it appears to me to be suspect (Given that it is only for "unconstitutional" federal gun laws....)

    A simple Google search will show you evidence that purports masks work. Another simple Google search will show you evidence that purports they do not work.

    Ummm.... Huh??? ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคช Exactly where did you hear or read that??? 'Expelling the virus orally' has absolutely NOTHING to do with your body's first line of defense against viruses. If you are expelling a virus orally from your body, you already have it. In fact you just made the argument for wearing one, by indicating you can't expel the virus orally with a mask on.

    Ya, I get you. Was of course mainly just making a lame joke about how jalapenos inflame me. For sure I'm a believer in trying to eat natural-healthy foods to the extent that I can. VERY scary what ends-up in canned foods, and I avoid canned/processed foods to the extent that I can. I have gravitated towards lots of veggies & protein, and lower carbs & simple sugars. (Though I cheat a little too much on the simple sugars thing....)

    +1 I would like to know what "inflammatory" food is. Had some jalapenos two days ago that may qualify, but not sure.
