I've seen that. Never tried. You need the bath heater I believe. I just like fire to much 😆

Where I live everyone has a chest freezer of some size. Because 2 words "meat sale". Several local grocery stores are hooked up with local farms and certain times of the year have huge meat sales. We all load up. My dad was a butcher in his teens and likes to relive his youth. So he'll get the butcher cuts and cut them down for us and vacuum seal. Vacuum sealed steak let to thaw then rested to room temp with some salt on a hot grill or cast iron will be nearly close to butcher fresh. You'll get large cuts for nearly half the price per pound at times.

My parents turned in their 1970s Hotpoint 25-30ish maybe 40 cu ft freezer for an upright. They simply can't lean over into the coffin anymore. Had it on the farm for years to store pigs, chickens, half a steer and veggies. Was always top full. It's a monster. The uprights don't store near as much. And take allot to rechill when open. They also don't typically hold the low temps of a chest. Chest is best unless reasons.

They didn't steal shit. I work my ass off. Climbed every obstacle. Hit every life pothole. Fucked up myself many times. I will never quit or let them take my livelihood. Sure I don't have a picture perfect life. 19yo with crazy college gf. Divorced with 2 younger kids. But my 19yo is apprentsing to be a mason. My ex-wife and me get along and our kids are happy and I am a stern but loving father. GF and I just bought a 4br home earlier in the year and enjoy life when we can. Cookouts with family and friends. Enjoy our castle, as I call it. I live pretty minimalist. Cheap cell plan, not much TV, sans OAN sub, lots of outside work, save and buy with cash not loans. All with a missing leg that I try not let get in my way. Life is good. Never let them take it from you.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:.
I am the captain of my soul.

Invictus
William Ernest Henley
1893

Mad respect for your guy. Thank him for his service and sacrifice. I'm not a vet, though many in my family. I trucked myself to a Trump rally alone and a second with my gf. I have a prosthetic leg and let little stand in my way. Being disabled is very much a state of mind. I feel I fight harder each day to prove that I'm not and overcome any obstacle. Pushing though a disability to make sure you're not a burden on anyone and contribute for those you love is a very strong and driving force. I'm sure he's a very hard working and devoted companion. Be a solid team and you'll tackle anything in your way. ♥️🇺🇸

I partially agree with this. The 20MB default is a problem. For any election machine that has requirements ava could be audited, this seeing should be removed without a limit. I think there's a setting to compress or archive, I can't recall right now. I've run into this issue many times with troubleshooting issues.
However, Id argue that there should be no reason someone would ever delete individual entries. What's the purpose of that at all? If it was because they were junking up the 20MB file.... Increase it or allow to grow indefinitely. This part is very suspect to me. I've been in IT 25 years and no one cherry picks log entries for deletion.

Funny thing is women are often very persistent if they like you. Even if you do nothing they'll be persistent, not always obvious, but they will be. You'll gain confidence in yourself. I'm not very confident and often shy. But I'll push myself over boundaries at times when it's comfortable. You just need to do things that present opportunity.

Where do you live? That could taint the pond a bit too. I used to be notoriously friend zoned by females. So Id try to date women immediately to avoid that but ended up with some real crazies. Now I ended up with a friend who was divorced a few years before me and discovered we both kinda had a thing for each other. There is no real formula to it. Just be you but always be open to growing as well. Like anything you need to put yourself in the presents of opportunity. See what happens. It'll click one day. Id rather be alone than ending up with something I hate being with for sure.

I've had many crummy relationships. My be 19yos mom was bat shit crazy. Short relationship in college and pretty sure she tried to get pregnant. Which caused me to sorta spiral into madness for a while. She mentally fucked with me for years. Ended up married because I thought it was what I was supposed to do with a decent woman many years later. (Not her) Had 2 kids but relationship fell apart, we were both at fault. I called it and she was pissed, I think more so carrier I was upending her cushy lifestyle. No because she was losing me, she did nothing to try to help "us" fix anything. She's and all talk and no show type person. Though we get along for the kids and they are happy. She still is all talk though. Which pisses me off still because it impacts the kids.
Root of that story, everyone fucks up and has shitty relationships. They are quick to tell you all the great things in their life and none of the bad. Life is one giant experiment and lesson of learning. Try to find some good friends that won't sugar coat stuff. They are usually the first people that can't give you a warning sign. I didn't listen anyway. My buddy didn't listen to me and my GF when he called at midnight and complained about his new gf and that was over a year ago now. Still with her. Waiting for her to move in and "get knocked up". Thinks I've learned are don't get tied up in a bad relationship, it'll closes you off to something good if it comes by. Be patient, being single can be lonely but do things to accidently meet me people. You might find the best person in the most unsuspecting place. Just saying. We are all weird and fucked up in some way. I even have a missing leg and that doesn't keep me down. 😆 You'll figure it out.

Yup. Feel the same here. Unfortunately, had to take the gf to several places today due to abdominal pain. Tonight was a CT at the main hospital. They said their ER was really busy... But the hospital itself was insanely dead, like... Oddly dead. And I've spent several occasions there the last few years for my son with severe allergies and Athma issues. My buddy works in construction there and said they are busy, but who knows it's downtown and lots of crazy folk. At a satellite office for my provider today, we have like 3-4 competing heath providers in the area, we sat at the walk in, not super busy but average. We kept hearing people ask for PCR tests and were asked "do you have any symptoms?"... "Well no but I had direct exposure and I want tested". They were turned away. People are just crazy over this shit and hysterical if they think they've had any contact.

This is the stuff that gives me hope. Give your kid a good handshake from this pede. I doy best to raise my kids the same. Though we are in a pretty conservative area and would like to keep it that way.

You remind me of a co-worker and friend. He grew up a Jehovah's Witness and broke away. Meaning he's essentially shunned from everyone he grew up with. His brother did as well, but his brother used him financially and fucked him over. He's akward and socially confused with everything he does. But he tries, he's failed many times. He's pissed me off tons. He dated a train wreck and finally got out of that and now dating a Dem chick who's "ok" but feel she's just in it for his money and financial support. However, he's a very honest and loyal friend. Id trust him over many people I've been friends with for years. Trust and honesty is a hard thing to find these days. We don't always get along and he doesn't push conversations to far. He asks for advise even at midnight.. About the girl he's seeing and me and my GF said run for the hills. He hasn't. But he's still my friend and he's a good one.
There are allot of people just like you out there. Go explore. Hike. Go get a pet. If you're an honest and truthful person, people will stick around. Just weed out the users of your kindness. That's his biggest weakness. He's forever second guessing himself. But he's greatly improved the last 5 years I've known him.
