Glad to see that you have avoided the landslide. A truly tragic event.
Yes, my wife & I are fine. At the SAME time as the mountain collapse, my wife & I WERE traveling in the lower Stillaguamish River valley! If we had been traveling in the upper north fork of the Stillaguamish(a direction I've taken many times), our fates may have been different.

I could (but not quite) put the mountain collapse in the same category, as my history with Mt. St. Helens' eruption. The week-end St. Helen's was percolating, I was packing my car to go photograph any plumes that might come from it. I had planned to be 10-15 miles north of St. Helens, when the north wall collapsed & the mountain shot out sideways, killing people out to 25miles (more?). I'm sure I would have died. As I was packing tho, a thought came to me that lots of people would be photographing it. I had been losing my interest in photography for the previous 6 months, just stopped packing, & stayed at home.

Here's some photos by Reid Blackburn taken of St. Helens, 1+months before he died in the St. Helens' eruption, that were just found & developed in 2013.

LOL

maybe you you turn away from the PC before she finds a real man, son!!

i'm sure you can't do it, so explain how more available conventional gas will bring the price of it down??? you are smart enough, right?

is your wife really attracted to neediness, stupidity, and attention seeking? if not.....you're in big trouble, boi!!!

if it weren't for the corrupt EPA, litesong, you could get all the 100% gasoline you want!
they say they impose this law in order to help control GHG emissions.
the EPA is the sole reason you can't find conventional gas and the sole reason it costs more. it has nothing to do with refiners!!
And, litethong doesn't understand that when you use a diluted gasoline you must use MORE gas to go the same distance before ethanol and as such, we are putting MORE pollutants in the air before ethanol was mandated!!

What's our topic? Immigration? I'm so ditzy sometimes.

==========
40% of all workers in L. A. County (L. A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals who are here illegally. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages. The FBI reports that half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking. In L. A. County, 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.(There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County.) Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth (and over 90% of California , Florida , and New York ) results from immigration. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

just admit you don't understand, son. just realize that government organizations get it wrong much of the time. THEN....you might understand why some of us don't make knee jerk reactions to your fifth grade mentality demands.
Climate science has a much better track record than economics.

Of course, you are a sleazy, slimy steenking toxic topix AGW foaming-at-the-mouth denier lier, because you know that I know 100% gasoline vs. 10% ethanol blends, has, not 3% better mpg like the EPA states, but 8% to 5% greater mpg. Ethanol does not burn properly in gasoline engines. You know I have a decade plus of data comparing 100% gasoline to 10% ethanol blends, for 3 vehicles.
