Hoods rule!

Thugs? Why do you want thugs to rule?


Because thugs like this don't take any guff.

Kansas City is the birthplace of the Bacon Explosion, a legendary dish made from bacon, sausage meat and barbeque sauce.
I think they mixed apples and oranges here since KC major is in big bacon eating MO.
10 pounds of pork belly are currently in my fridge, curing into bacon, to be smoked next week.

That's the can the plants come in. There's a pop-top on the bottom (I guess that would make it a pop-bottom) that you pop open for drainage, and a pull ring top (like a tuna can) to open it. You add water until it drains out the bottom and put the plastic cover on the bottom.
Let's get some respect here and refer to them as incubators, not cans....and certainly not beer or tuna cans..that is so disrespectful.

Jim, you don't want Otis to strip you or your parental rights...do you? Watch your language!

Reminds me...a few years ago the Butcher Man grew a large pepper plant in his shop. It looked like a small tree and was gorgeous. In the summer he sat it outside for some sun and fresh air. Forget to bring it in one night and the damn squirrels destroyed it.

Maybe.


But the clapped out slag heap of a Peterbilt in the photos had a Cat engine, with a Super 10 transmission. It rolled out very well.


Power to spare under that Big Hood.


It was a blast to drive.




I drove this truck for a week while Montsro was in the Big Truck Hospital. It was one of the spare loaner rigs, older tractors that didn't have high enough miles to be sent to auction. They are used to keep drivers and freight moving when the newer trucks are down for extended repairs.

Nothing disrespectful about beer and chili peppers.

Otis says if beer is involved, some disrespect is allowed.

Racer.....Have you seen the Group Album over in the K1 Club? It looks an awful lot like my K1 Album???

Are these guys taking shots or just sitting around admiring their K1 bodies? As much as I like a little exposure of my shots, this is ridiculous!

I'd like to see what the group members are shooting...can't you use that big hammer on them or at least turn Otis loose on them for not posting?

Maybe they need to sell their K1s to someone in need?

Regards!

Yes I have, and yes, it does.


Your work clearly shows how good your work is,

Well many are posting here: Post Your K-1 Pictures Here




And another member has offered to make and post photos on demand using lenses in his collection. A great idea, but I'm still waiting for him to reply to my request.


Read more here: Tell Me What To Do!

Yes, it would appear that way.

Me too.

Sorry, but I cannot abuse my authority.




No matter how much I may want to.






But.


You are always welcome to try and shame these guys into sharing their work at the Clubhouse Gallery.








QuoteOriginally posted by Rupert Quote

Or at least get more involved in the group.


The thing is, you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink it.








Lots of really good work, fine examples of what can be done with this fantastic new tool when in the right hands.


Clearly a good reason to not buy a K3.

Can't you kick them when no one is looking? Otis does that all the time.
