    November 11 temperature records

    I like to catch the weather broadcast on November 11 because the record high temperature and the record low temperature for that date, this is for Oklahoma City, were set on the same day in 1911. The temperature had reached 83 that day when a cold front blew in and dropped the thermometer to 17...

    Heating a tent

    I used to know a man who served in WW2 and was stationed in Alaska. He told once about sleeping out when they were out on maneuvers.

    15 Year Member

    I really liked those 3 movies, just saw Wind River a couple weeks ago. Didn't realize Taylor Sheridan was involved with Yellowstone also. Haven't watched it, it's not on HULU.

    Human Composting

    When I was in China with the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program in 2008, we saw some humps out in some fields.

    RIP Tim Conway

    Cardinal

    I got to watching a police detective show from Canada called Cardinal. It's shown on HULU here in the US. Anyone else seen it?

    This! (is a thread political in nature about racism and sports)

    Prejudice and bigotry are basic human emotions that aren't going to disappear. Racism is just one form of them. I think we all need to look in a mirror once in awhile to judge ourselves and our particular biases.
