    Hate what CA has become. Anyway. It is not just the immigrants. A lot of it is policy for aid. We still have a rash of folks that are homeless or just plain lost about everything and are under employed. Remember that bubble thingy not so many years ago when real estate crashed and people lost home on bad loans. Yeah, we are still feeling that here. Look up homeless in SF or LA. Plenty of news there. A lot of industry has fled the state as well since it is so expensive to have a business here.

    Nope, not antifreeze which is Ethylene glycol. What you use is poly ethylene glycole. What it does is entering the cell structure and leaving a residue on the inside of that, which keeps the structure intact keeping the wood from shinking as it dries. So no checks or splits. Works well on smaller stuff, but it is an expensive solution and if the wood is later heated, the PEG melts and starts seeping out. So when your mother in law puts the beautiful bowl that you made for her on top of the radiator, problems will enuse, unless you used a drip proof lacquer. I'e experimented, but didn't like it. it works well if you want to preserve a full "cookie" section of a log, without it splitting.

    Telling it like it is and hating is two different thing IMO.

    There are constantly folks here who try to sell the removal as a do it yourself for wood turners. Quite funny. 2-3 years ago a group of turners hired me to take some do it yourself trees like that down for them. I just put them on the ground, they did the clean up and kept the wood. Big size walnuts. They were quite happy about paying me.

    Spaying it with one of the parraffin based wood coating products like " Arbor seal" is the easiest way. It can be applied with a paint brush, too. I'm currently preparing a bunch of turning wood for a Norwegian turner, who will come down to pick it up in spring, in exchange for a lot of vacuum packed dried fish. The doggies love that. I'm sealing the whole lot with Arbor seal. Bob, if you want to dry burl bowls fast, then rough turn them to a couple of inches thick, toss them in pure alcohol ( Moonshine will work!) for a forthnight, then air dry them. Goes real fast and they usually don't chaeck.

    As I recall; you made cash arrangements, had the procedure done and paid it out right, only to receive another bill you had to dispute.

    Yup! You have to visit to understand it. Or grow up around it or live there. Some of those streets are beyond steep. They laugh at 8% grades. I bet people blow equipment motors from oil starvation on some of them.

    No. There came a point in my life I ended up poorly and had to let it go.

    I believe if you really want and need to work, most likely you will find something. May not always be want you know or want .....but. There was one time in MA during the 80s that finding work was extremely difficult for me. I had worked my way up to press operator in a factory. When the factory was purchased by an overseas company, a lot of us lost our jobs. A lot of people lost jobs back then in other areas of mfg. Robotics and computers took some of them. Automation. And there was a recession going on. Less product needed to be mfg. I took the unemployment while I looked. Buggered my toe on a lawn mower and the temp disability helped. Then they had a program to retrain me through the unemployment office after my toe healed. State paid all my wages except .50 per hour by a company willing to train me. I can't remember for how long. But obviously cheaper at min wage for the unemployment insurance and it gave me work and a new trade that paid better later. Not near what I made at the previous factory, but enough for the time coupled with a part time gig I put together for myself. Seemed a good program for the times.
