Re: Difference of opinion before the "rack"

I didn't watch the link you provided, however I am in agreement with you. Slap, Rack, Assess is still valid. However, I modified it slightly to Slap, Rack, Reacquire (for reacquire a solid two-handed grip; I've observed so many students that failed to re-establish a solid support hand grip during ma...

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

I'd suggest first get rid of the moles, since they're causing the damage. If you have dogs or outside animals, I'd avoid poisons. We had a small mole problem many years ago, & I had read to use fruity smelling bubble gum. Chew up some Hubba Bubba, & shove it into the holes. Theory was they'd eat it,...

Re: Definition of "Premises" Regarding 51% Restaurants

Texas Penal Code 46.035 states it is unlawful for an LTC holder to carry on the "premises" of a 51% establishment. It is a defense to prosecution if it's a 51% establishment but they failed to post a 51% sign. TPC 46.035 uses the following definition for Premises: "Premises" means a building or a po...

From the video clip Phillip posted, it appears there were at least 4x armed members of the congregation, not including the deranged gunman, and they were disbursed somewhat throughout the sanctuary. I have no id...
