    Re: Economy and Finance Thread

    Tell me in a million years how much man affected it. I suspect we will be gone long before that and the planet will be moving on without us.

    As was said earlier you aren't going to control Mother Nature.

    26 Million years Antarctica was a rain forest.

    The Petrified forest in Arizona was previously part of Central America.

    3 Phase 1000 watt amp. I would need to run an 800' power cord from my shop. That can't be too expensive :).

    Listened to this while mowing grass and weeds this morning.
    I finished and came in to my music room to play it again.
    I highly recommend this Shelby Lynne album.
