re: Is college a good investment? - mikie421 on 7/10/18 at 2:29 pm
There is simply no substitute for experience in emergency management. The only job you will find with no EM experience will be entry level/analyst type jobs. I would look to state level employers and large consultant firms like Witt/O’Briens. Send your resume to The Response Group in Houston...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: OT DIY types: Building a bookcase - mikie421 on 6/5/18 at 9:10 am
If you build it the way they show in that video and fill the shelves with books, you may have issues. Depends on the shelf length. If you want to go that route, you can build it the same as in the video, just attach the shelves to the sides with screws using the kreg jig, and use plywood. If...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: OT DIY types: Building a bookcase - mikie421 on 6/5/18 at 6:53 am
I’m guessing the OP doesn’t have the tools or skill to do things like cutting dados. If he did he wouldn’t be asking these questions. OP, go watch some YouTube videos by jay bates and others on using the kreg jig. This is what you need to get started and you can build a lot of things with this m...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

just go to riverside lumber on Downman road, tell them what you want to build and they will hook you up. They have every kind of plywood and hardwood you can think of. Stop at visions on the way home....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]What's the issue with MDF?[/quote] MDF is poor for structural strength and doesn’t hold screws well. Poor strength for shelves compared to plywood.

Use 3/4 Baltic birch ply not the Chinese stuff. Face frames can be made out of poplar. I’ll s cond the Kreg jig for your joinery. Finish it with Benjamin Moore satin impervo for a smooth finish. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Well, brought my dog to the vet today.(Final Update) - mikie421 on 5/30/18 at 10:02 pm
I will second the vets at Medvet in Mandeville. Our dog just spent 6 nights there with sepsis, glad to say she pulled through and is doing fine. The Vets would call me two to three times a day with updates and we could go hang out with her at any hour of the night. I never in a million years tho...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: South Africa Trip Review: Cape Town, Franschhoek, and Sabi Sands - mikie421 on 4/2/18 at 9:21 am
I’m really glad I bought the sigma 150-600 lens. Makes all the difference. My wife is shooting with our other camera with a 70-300 and it’s just a bit too short to get close ups of the faces and far away leopards hanging out in trees (we saw four different ones today)...

I’m in Kruger right now! First 1/2 day we saw a ton. 2 leopards, elephants, giraffes, zebra, kudu, etc. Heading to Kapama River Lodge for a few days then on to Cape Town. The face on my two 9 year olds are priceless when we something cool. Along with my son’s expert animal commentary!...

re: Roux floating on top of gumbo? - mikie421 on 2/24/18 at 8:13 am
Probably added the liquid to fast. Need to add some and whisk until blended and thick, then add more, repeat several times. Also, don’t return to a hard boil. Just simmer. You can skim the roux off the top and put in a blender with stock. Blend for a while and return to pot. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Expat Rotation - mikie421 on 2/16/18 at 8:58 am
I'm considering putting in for a job that is 28/28 rotation in Asia. I work for one of the supermajors. Wondering if anyone has experience with this? My main considerations are family (2 kids 9 years old) and prospects with the company when the gig ends in 3-4 years. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
