Other things that are fun to do (Besides blogging, Facebook, and twitter)

I injoy many things, but one of the things that I enjoy most is Amateur (ham) Radio Contesting.
  You ask "so what is ham radio contesting anyway" My answer could take several pages, and probably
Should... but it wont, lets say this, the goal is to contact (not via email, instant messaging, or SMS) but on the radio, as many other stations as you can. in different country's or state's (depending on the contest) in a specified amount of time, usually 12, 24 or 48 hours.
  Now you ask "so who in there right mind is going to stay up ALL night just to talk to people that they have never met" well actually a lot of people will.

There is a lot of Competition, as to who will win
the contest, or who will win out of your state,
 section, or division.
 Because, if you win enough times your room (Shack) could look like this (this is the shack of long time contester jh4uyb, in Japan)
Mine dose not look like that unfortunately!
 And you can talk ALL over the world.
    You can become a better operator.

But most importantly you have a lot of fun.

   Well now some of you might see why, but for thouse of you who dont please email me to find out.

Todays Inspiring Verse

Psalm 119:87
They had almost consumed me upon earth, But I forsook not thy precepts.

My Latest Project

We at the 25th SOG are starting to get some weapons made,
  The first one that I am working on is the M3 Grease gun.

First things first, the parts that you need are, 1) 14 inches of 11/4" pvc pipe (that you can find at hardware stores, plumbing, or electrical supply houses). a 11/4" to 1" reducer, (get the one that is designed for plumbing, it looks Much better! A 1" to 1/2" reducer (again get the one designed for plumbing). A 11/4" end cap (you would  find that in the plumbing section to). the top photo on the right is of the center housing of the Grease gun (which is made by cutting the correct shape on the band saw) you would use a 2"x4" or a larger piece of wood.
The next photo down on the list to the right is of the fittings
that were described earlier in this post.
the lowest photo on the right is of the barrel assembly, it incorporates the fittings, and includes the barrel (a 1/2" piece of pvc pipe 8 inches long). (the barrel is not cut in the photo).
 If you want to make one I would deffinatly suggest that you go to Wikipedia and look at the article on the M3 Grease gun
Its the best way to get a knowledge of the gun.
and you could do a Google search on the M3 grease gun,
In images, there are a lot of good pictures of that gun.

An Amazing Quote

I have an aunt who is 93 years old, she just had a stroke and is in rehab, she hopefully will come out of rehab alive. but last night she said (and meant it) "wherever you go you must bring joy"
  and I hope that you all will pray for her.
