<quoted text>For a sturdy fence or structure, start with level, properly set posts. Whether your posts are for a fence to protect a vegetable garden or the support for an arbor or clothesline, the techniques for setting posts is the same. Start with weather treated posts, dig a hole deep enough to hold 1/3 the length of your post and check the vertical level of your post continuously. As you plan your project, leave plenty of time for the concrete to cure properly.
That should make a great post !

I guess the "nice guy" categorization might have been inaccurate, or at least premature.

It's a little bit early on a Saturday night to be drinking, isn't it? If that's not the problem then you have serious issues to deal with.

I don't doubt you at all.

What's Clint say, other than when he's speaking to a chair ?

"A good man knows his limitations."

I don't know a damn thing about post holes, heck, my last attempt to install a deadbolt cost me a fortune. The locksmith sold me a huge brass plate to cover my embarrassing efforts- so I bow to your expertise.

thanks,but like you(and clint)said every man does need to know his limitations.carpentry,cabinet making,building,etc.are,for the most part,acquired skills.it is my opinion that something like politics is innate or intrinsic.even changing someones' opinion about the matter seems nearly impossible.

The nuts are really just one person posting under several names. Just look at the time of postings for Synergy & Bill, shows just how stupid they really are.
One thing is painfully obvious about synergy & bill, ITíS the same person. IT has never worked at a company that required real work or planning to earn a profit. IT worked at either a government job, a utility, a hospital or a not for profit or both. Whatever it was the profit was guaranteed and the competition was nonexistent. IT sits at home bored to death posting on topix and cashing ITíS retirement check & SSI check every month. IT has a nice house and a couple of nice cars, probably a corvette, thatís the car of choice for old folks trying to prove they matter. Its all paid for by working people who IT hates. IT thinks that ITS tax money keeps poor folks in beer and flat screen TVs, what a nut.

I guess when IT calls me Einstein thatís a compliment, or maybe IT'S just jealous. That also seems to be a reoccurring them with IT!

Good point.

I respectfully disagree only to the extent that secure people recognize changing one's opinion in response to previously unknown facts is a sign of intelligence and maturity.

I'm sure that on occasion we all fall short of the glory on this aspect of growing too.

Remember, this is the same Einstein that wanted to have a bet about a certain vehicle (he could have won $1,000 by putting up only $10, if he was correct) but backed out claiming we would have the police arrest him. Or, since, we are me (according to him/her), I would have the police arrest him. For what, I have no idea, he/she probably didn't think that far ahead...

Couldn't back up his/her claims. Not surprising.
