    Years ago i drove my stump grinder through a house in s.f. Had to put a long hose on the exhaust to get through the front hallway, livingroom, kitchen in the back then stairs down to the backyard. Sheesh wadda circus!

    For that type of cross cut wood immerse completely in a tub of denatured alcohol. Soak times vary, but this will dry out the wood and almost eliminate checking. You can try painting, waxing, bagging with damp sawdust then storing in a dark cool place, etc but most of your chunks will check anyways using these methods. if you are turning you could rough the chunks out green and then soak them.

    I dont think many people realize just how tight san fransisco is. Steep streets, often with big trees captivated in tiny backyards. Zero access. In surburban housing developments at least you have a 3' pathway to the backhard. In s.f? No.

    Most people scab onto anothers health care. Fact of the industry. Seems very odd to me that the isa with such a huge membership has done nothing in this regard. I do know they provide for their employees. Why not for the industry???

    Omni lift (spelling?) is what greg good has. I got to play with it the last time i visited with him. Seems very well made but expensive

    FWIW, i have NEVER had any DUIs, and in fact have a spotless record. Your attitude shows that you do not understand the issues. That is sad, because what is going on is real, your attitude will turn 180 degrees if you become entangled in this. For example: say your holy self is at a cafe where weed smoke is present. You then drive home. You get pulled over, your clothes smell. Now you are in the system as a user, and have thousands of dollars trying to prove you are innocent. Your attitude is, foolish.

    The 'system' makes alot of money off DUIs. In addition i have heard stories of cops sitting outside DUI mandatory classes waiting to bust people with suspended licenses who drive to class. Also i have heard of the auto breath test machine mysteriously crapping out. Which then requires a tech visit to reset the machine. What does that mean? It means if you are trying to get to work and then cant, you could lose your job, then lose your 'to and fro' privilage and then incur more court fees. Vicious cycle designed to milk a person dry.

    Back to the post topic: Hummm, the newspaper just reported that police will be citing drivers for impaired driving under the influence of weed. There is so far no set legal limits of THC, and no reliable way to test for it. That must mean that if a cop decides you are impaired, they can do what they want. Even if you have never imbibed! Scary world we live in.

    Great thoughts seanKroll. I will add that a guy who works with me 'forgot' all the essential steps to hooking up the chipper to the chip truck. He is a heavy user. But overall i am confused with the weed vrs. Liquor. Alcohol has a very measurable harmful effect on safety. It seems like grasping for excuses with finding harmful results from weed.

    Ever had a chimney fire? The way to control it is to NOT run up to the roof and dump water down the chimney. Simply begin by spraying water (glass or spritzer) into the fire from your stove or whatnot. Keep adding water. It will steam and raise up the chimney and put the fire up there out

    I did hear that their is a program to erase peoples criminal history. These laws seem to be based on ideologies, not based on actually protecting citizens from real harm. Why is alcohol o.k. With all the statistics proving how harmful it is, but weed is so evil?

    Today is the first day of legal pot sales in calif. i have several friends who were busted for growing weed in 2015-2016. Heavy fines with the dreaded felon sentence which will stay with them for many years. (For life?) Now, it is all legal. Strange world we live in. I dont have a point to make here really. Seems a shame a person can lose so much but with a turnaround of of the law suddenly it is all irelevant.
