THE 2ND AMENDMENT / Re: Virginia CHL online

Yes, it specifically says Texas residents can get the Virginia license.  Probably change wording for each state they target.  They sent it to my neighbor who is 87 years old and needs a walker to get around.  Well, I guess he could carry concealed in his bag on the walker.

COLONY COLLAPSE DISORDER - TALKS & REPORTS / Re: The benefits of wood-rotting fungi
« Last post by Al Stein on February 21, 2017, 03:12:28 PM »
Something came up on another site about this, so let me add this.

There is no risk here.
These mushrooms already are growing in the environment, bees already seek them out, and mushroom growers see bees on their crops but don't know why.

This is just a list of the mushrooms that bees like, plus some evidence that they are beneficial to bee health.

Anyone can buy some mushroom growing kits, and if bees like them they'll see for themselves.

They are just bringing a piece of old growth forest into their back yard.

NATURAL & ORGANIC BEEKEEPING METHODS / Re: The benefits of wood-rotting fungi

I got some questions about this on another site so I wanted to add a few things.

First of all, I should call them mushrooms instead of fungi. People like the word better.
For the record though, mushrooms are just the fruit of fungi.

Second, there is no risk here. This is just a list of the mushrooms that bees like, and evidence that they improve bee health.
These mushrooms are already in the environment, bees already seek them out, mushroom growers see bees on their crops but don't know why.

In the wild, bears scratch trees and these mushrooms colonize the scratches. Then bees find the mushrooms on the tree scratches.

Anyone can buy some mushroom grow kits, put them in their yard and if bees like them, they'll see for themselves.
All you are doing is bringing some of the old growth forest into your back yard.

I don't recommend people I.D. these fungi on their own. Many of these are edible and DIY fungi identification usually ends in the E.R.
I found a couple of mushroom companies that sell growing kits for most of these.
But, I didn't want to mention names because I don't want people to think I'm marketing.
This is all about the bees for me.

Dont buy package bees, buy nucs to get started.  A nuc is more established.  There are more places around to get bees than those three websites.  You may have to drive an hour, but you can get nucs.

I've seen ads for Utah CCW class online, mostly on FB and the shooting forums I use.  They don't seem to include fingerprinting and photo fees.  The cost is about double what one would pay for live classroom, which usually does include the fees and the required range time.

I wouldn't bite for what I can see.  I'd bet double er nothin' that it's the same outfit and they're tailoring the ad to mention your state or the state your Internet server happens to be.

THE COFFEE HOUSE ((( SOCIAL - ROOM ))) / Re: Michael Flynn

As I understand it, nobody was tapping Flynn's phone.

Exactly.  The FBI says no problem with their interview of Flynn.  His sin was within the admin and whatever went on between him and Pence.

The recordings are SOP and happened under the Obama admin.  The release of the info was criminal on a number of levels. 

Flynn was dumped by the Obama admin because he disagreed with the with the admin on it's handling of terrorism and on the Iran deal.  The Iran thing Obama considers a legacy issue.  It is not unreasonable to think there are those from the prior admin who wanted to take him out so that he could not help dismantle the Iran deal.  He's been in intel a very long time and probably knows where bodies are buried.
