    I have already spoken to her insurance company. She informed them of the accident yesterday. I have a claim number and it's already been assigned to an adjuster. I have her name and number and left her a message. We'll see.
    Sorry to hear of this, glad you're okay. I'd rather have an outbreak of cold sores as opposed to dealing with insurance issues.

I don't want to pay $700 for a new one either, just a plain old Dearborn 2 bottom plow is all I'm looking for.

    Wrong trees cut. . . twice

    I sold some timber early in the year and the harvest crew is active. On part of the sale, I had wanted to leave oak and a few poplar seed trees in order to do some hardwood reforestation. Friday night, I got a call from my forestry consultant saying when he checked the harvest some of those trees had been cut. Dang it, those were selected for form, species and location so that there would be a pretty good spacing of red oak, white oak and poplar in the area. They were clearly marked with paint and the guy on the cutter just whacked them down anyway.

    So yesterday morning, I met the consultant on site and we are scrambling around down tree laps trying to see paint marks on the stumps so he can tally up the trees, get values etc. There's a specific remedy in Virginia law of 3 times the value plus the cost of determining the value plus reforestation cost but there's also so legal hoops to jump through so even though I will be compensated somewhat, my original plan is now shot to heck.

    Since I'm on the property, I decided to go check on 10 American chestnuts I had planted last fall. They were planted in two rows, 10' apart, 20' between the rows in a small field that was just kept open and not cropped. I check the first row and while deer had chomped on some of them, all survived. I look at the second row and the hunt club guy that mowed the field had wiped out 3 out of five. It seems that he thought the stakes on the ends of the rows marked the only two trees. That p'oed me more than losing the mature trees as i pointed out the chestnuts to the hunt club, told them to be careful, left stakes in place etc.

    This property is 40 miles from my house so I can't be there all the time but dang, I sure wish I could be there and prevent stupidity. . . Or at least have it as my stupidity instead of someone elses.

    Sorry to hear about your accident. I guess a better description is her accident!


    Maybe you can get a chuckle out of my rear end job.


    About 20 years ago I was driving on the North side of Milwaukee in my 1992 F150 and had come to a stop behind 5 vehicles at a light. I was struck from behind and was pushed into all the 5 vehicles in front of me. My rear wheels are off the ground and her buick lesabre is burried 3/4 of the way up her hood. The first thing she sais is "why are you stopped". I replied, myself and the 5 others had been waiting for the light to turn green. I turned to see if the other drivers are headed back to see who the moron is, and they all had driven away. I guess they felt in this neighborhood it was safer to just deal with the damages. I asked her for insurance info, she said none. I asked for a drivers license, she said none. I jumped in the F150, pulled it into 4 high and dropped the clutch. Her hood stuck with me for about 20 feet and I was off and running. I tooted the horn a couple times as I drove away. She was chasing me and shaking her arms. Funny as all hell. Let her explain everything to the police and I'm sure they would just laugh.

    Thank god for frame mounted receiver hitches.

    Basically, I have come to the conclusion that between the stupid people, lazy people, dishonest people and the ignorant, scourge on society group, the rest of us are nearly an endangered species. And I swear, if I hear one more liar say "I swear to God, I didn't __________" I am going to smack someone side the head with a ball bat.........

    Actually, they usually say "You can axe my moms, I did ent do its, I swears to God".........yet you can present them with video evidence of their actions and "its not their fault".....or "you be picking on dem".......and on and on........

    People make mistakes, things happen. But when you make a mistake, you own it and take full responsibility for it. First thing you do is admit what you have done and then determine an appropriate way to remedy the situation. But to run from it or deny it, leads me to think it was intentional, like the tree cutting. Doesn't matter "why" it was done, it was done. Trying to justify it or explain it makes it worse.

    It sounds like they just clear cut everything, despite the tree markings, etc. Supposedly, many of the logging outfits are using GPS to make sure they stay on the land which they are supposed to be operating. Hopefully they followed those restrictions or that becomes another issue to deal with.

    When someone doesn't do what they say they will do, or when they purposely do something they know and were told not to do, it leads me to conclude they must fit the description in my opening statement.

    Facts of the case

    Oklahoma's Criminal Sterilization Act of 1935 allowed the state to sterilize a person who had been convicted three or more times of crimes "amounting to felonies involving moral turpitude." After his third conviction, Skinner was determined to be a habitual offender and ordered to be sterilized. He argued that the law violated the Fourteenth Amendment.

    Question

    Did the Act violate the Fourteenth Amendment?

    Conclusion

    In an opinion written by William Orville Douglas, the unanimous Court held that the Act violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Court reasoned that certain crimes, such as embezzlement, were excluded from the Actís jurisdiction without explanation or reason. Moreover, the Court reasoned that because of the social and biological implications of reproduction and the irreversibility of sterilization operations, compulsory sterilization laws should be subject to strict scrutiny.
    In his concurrence, Chief Justice Harlan F. Stone stated that he disagreed with the majority opinionís reliance on the Equal Protection Clause and instead cited the Due Process Clause to prevent Skinner from being sterilized.

    Now a damn good idea from Tennessee of all places. Of course the Tofu Warriors are up in arms over this, even though itís voluntary. However; the women should get equal treatment under this policy.
