This one went well even if I did take 4 stings to the same eyelid!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Good job, thanks for the post.

How do you go about patching a wall like that?

D, If the owner wants us to do the repairs (which is only about 1 out of 4) we place two stucco corners (lath 90s) in the cavity and trowel on a scratch coat. The next day we trowel on a finish coat and re-strike the mortar lines between block. After paint you can't tell we were ever there.

If I took 4 stings to the same eyelid, I wouldnt be able to see for a week. Plus all the kids at my school would make fun of me to boot LoL. Nice video.

I just might have to do one of these with you one day, especially the repair part. No one down here wants you opening up their cinder blocks but if I could sell them on repairs that would be a whole nother thing. Have one right now in an apartment building with overhead hollow block beams. Just may be giving you a call on that one.

Great job!

great video!  good to see you both.  how long do you guess they'd been in there?
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
