  1. Hey Fellow TGOers,

    I would appreciate your feedback and advice.  It's about time to open up the gun safe and sell some excellent firearms that are tired of sleeping.  I am not the brightest bulb in the pack in knowing how to value my firearms (to sell ONLY on TGO and our members).  Thank you in advance for books, websites, etc. where I may discern how to price my firearms before offering them for sale.

    As always, thank you.  I wish the very best for all of you!

  2. I've been working at home as a mental health therapist seeing people by telehealth for the past year and it has gone well.  Before the pandemic insurance companies would not pay for telehealth; I'm hoping that they will not change as things start going back to normal.  My clients are so used to not having to come in to the office I am fearful many will drop out of therapy if they have to return.  

    We'll see . . .

    I’d be curious as to your thoughts  @Luckyforward considering this sort of thing is at least related to your wheelhouse. 

    So as a therapist, I wish we still had mental hospitals; a short history on why we don't anymore.   In 1955 there were 559,000 people in mental hospitals in America.  (Would be over a million in today's numbers.)  Through the late 50s and early Sixties, a trend called "deinstitutionalization" started in mental health.  This trend was aided with the first psychotropic drugs that lessened the need for inpatient.  In 1963 the "Community Mental Health Centers Construction Act" went into effect to build between 1,500 - 2,500 community mental health centers to get patients out of the hospitals and into community care.  By 1977 only 650 centers had been built.  In 1981 the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act shifted funding to the states in the form of block grants and states decided to spend more money on community mental health rather than hospitals, so it is from the early 80s we began to have more homeless mental patients on the streets.  The lack of institutionalization plus the reality that you cannot force someone to get or stay on medication makes it difficult to treat the pervasively mentally ill.

  4. Pretty good incline on my street.  Those who try to make it up the hill begin with a running start from the cul de sac at the bottom.  Just watched the latest attempt with the driver sliding backwards down the hill and taking out 4 mailboxes . . .

    I've done a lot of genealogical research, I've even been to the Mormon Genealogical Research Library in Salt Lake City Utah.  I too have a grandfather who served in WWII and would love to find more information about his service.  I use familysearch.org which is hosted by the Mormon Church and is free.  There is a lot of good information on there and oftentimes you can get leads on where to find documents or information that you are looking for.  A word of caution: anyone can add anything to these records, so use them as a guide and verify information on your own.  Unfortunately, a lot of the WWII records were lost when the records house in St. Louis caught fire in the 1970s.  Good luck. 

    Ditto to familysearch.org - It is free and amazing what I have found about my family there!

    I heard about this investigation on The Dan Patrick show a few weeks back.  They joked that Tennessee can't even win at cheating.  I think this move is partly to get ahead of any NCAA punishment, but good luck with that.  Now that sports betting is getting more legit, they need to bring the hammer down on things like this.

    This gave the university a perfect excuse to cut Pruitt's contract for cause, and it looks like Fulmer is going to bow out to try and save his reputation.  The real danger to Pruitt is if he can show he was doing things with the university's knowledge, and wants to salt the earth.  My guess is he goes through the motions to see what money he can shake loose, then bites his tongue while hoping a mid-major team picks him up.

    Either way, more losing for Tennessee is on tap.

    Yep . . . another losing season to look forward to.🤪

    I have a double stack and a single stack version plus their .223 loader. Love all 3. I told a friend to buy the the double stack version and they got talked into something else at a local gun shop. Next time they came over to show what they bought and do some shooting I handed them my UpLuLa and told them to compare loading their magazines. They went home and ordered a UpLuLa.

    Same thing happened to a friend of mine.  He chided  me because "you spent too much money on that Uplula thing" but found one that the seller at a gun show told him is "just as good as an Uplula."  He decided to load all his Glock mags and didn't make it through two mags when the frustration led him to throw it against his concrete basement floor.  After recovering from his angst he ordered an Uplula . . .

    Always regretted not buying a pump rifle. Just never seemed to get around to it.

    I have SO MUCH FUN WITH IT!  It was between the Model 62 and a Marlin 39A lever action.  The Marlin is a great gun, but it took me longer to work the lever and get back on target.  I first remember shooting a pump the fair as a kid in Chattanooga.
