This area is usually really productive, but even the guides (who grew up in the exact area) didn't see anything. We didn't hear any shots, see any elk, or even any sign fresher than a week old. On the br...

renovating any room that contains lathe and plaster (horse hair for that matter) is messy. Pulling up linoleum not so much.

I use IE as my main browser, it works best for everything. Next I would say Chrome, then Firefox... IE has the most security updates, has been around the longest Good reason NOT to use IE. Why would I want a browser that requires constant security updates? Just seems logical that more security upda...
