    Somatics, a method of reminding your mind to release the muscles. Muscles aren't "tight" or "hard" on there own. If they feel this way it is because they are engaged. One thing engages muscles, an electrical signal sent from the brain. Remind the mind how to turn off the signal and the muscle goes to its relaxed state. (Hint, cats and dogs do what it takes to remind their mind of this about every time they get up and start to move.) "Stretching" works against this and in some cases can be the cause of additional injury. GREAT THREAD Sean!

    NAET (Nmbudrapods Allergy Ellimination Technique) a simple low cost method for clearing allergies so you may well not need the epi pen. And it makes life so much more workable for a host of other lower grade allergins one encounters.

    Such good info. Clearly presented with pictures to show examples over years. Almost got my wife to this one - maybe next time.

    Don't some ropes break down rather quickly with the short bend radius' involved in bridges AND that those bends are consistently in same place or close to it? Thought I have heard of mfg recall because they chose wrong rope to start with.

    Caution: The 'hook' Gary is talking about in post above is on the shorter (320?) Sugoi. That scabbard is not 'ambidextrous', it is curved and directional.

    Try them in cuts first if at all possible. I bought the Ibuki first because of seeing Jerry B use them so effectively in his DVD series. When I went to use it myself I found the saw to catch in the cuts far too much to be enjoyable. (Maybe I apply less power in starting cuts or something.) I used a smaller finer tooth Silky for pruning work and then I was around Lawrence Schultz and asked to try his Sugoi. It was the perfect meld of aggressive teeth and smooth starting for me. Funny when looking the Sugoi tooth patterns up to buy one I think I found it has the same number of teeth per inch. Only thing I can figure is the handle comes in at a slightly different angle to the blade and my casual down pressure is changed as a result.

    Hunnicutt Silky does have curved saws in ambidextrous scabbards. Ibuki and Sugoi 420.

    Thanks for the info Jim. I didn't know that any combines held material in and of themselves. I have only ever seen a truck or trailer paralleling them and the combine loading that.

    Cool vid. Richard Is a stud to be up so early and excited about it. You probably will have to wrestle him for driving privileges in a few more years. By the time he's 12 you'll be out of the cab altogether. :) What amount of seed does the internal hopper hold? And how fast were you filling it under those conditions in the video?

    Rich ordering a MB saddle puts you in line to have one made. Waiting to order, as I did, has more people step in line in front of you. (As I understand it.)

    Merle Nelson replied to a thread August Hunicke Videos in MBTV
    You earn and deserve that loyalty Carl (It also happens to work toward our own best interests.) Carl gives more inside practical information on a perspective purchase than any sales person I have ever encountered bar non. This helped me greatly to steer away from labor wasting choices etc and put my money more toward what would really matter to me in day to day functionality. Also after the fact his back up and support is unparalleled. On a trailer that I purchased through Carl all the options and custom features I had added were problematic for the company to bring together. I don't know if Carl has put in 20 times or a 100 times more effort on this sale than a person aught to but, I would buy anything I could from him before going elsewhere.
