That is one good operator running that machine.
Yeah. Our town has a really gifted backhoe guy, he's like a surgeon. I am "okay". My backhoe is super sensitive on left-right, so I have to baby that control. Otherwise, I am "okay" on it, fine for trenches (of course) and dirt movement, but not for precision foundation work.

Colorado Air Force Veteran's Funeral Draws Hundreds of Strangers in Snowstorm

https://www.military.com/daily-news...neral-draws-hundreds-strangers-snowstorm.html

Hundreds of people refused to let a snowstorm keep them from laying to rest a Colorado veteran who would have had no mourners.

Clyde Baldwin served in the Air Force for 20 years from 1950 to 1970 -- a period that included the Korean and Vietnam wars, according to reports. He was 91.

His funeral was Friday in Colorado Springs. The large crowd answered a call from a local VFW post requesting their attendance because Baldwin's only relative -- a sister in Oklahoma -- was unable to make it, Fox 21 Colorado Springs reported.

Baldwin, a decorated staff sergeant in the Air Force, wasn’t married and had no children.

“Weather conditions the way they were with people parked all the way out to Drennan and having to actually walk into the cemetery, it’s impressive to see that much support from the community,” Robert Aholt told the station.

Aholt belongs to the Colorado veteran group Patriot Guard Riders.

Baldwin’s funeral with military honors was held at Pikes Peak National Cemetery.

Hey nancy see this? It's called AMERICA! It's what we do, it's who we are!
Yeah, they WANTED to go! When you pass, the people that show up are doing so to be on tv, no other reason.

Trump will go....to rip up pictures of you and toss the pieces in the grave...while praying for you.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife Officers Build Cozy Den for Orphaned Bear Cubs

https://www.yahoo.com/news/colorado-parks-wildlife-officers-build-105249430.html


Officers from Colorado Parks and Wildlife have built a cozy den for two orphaned bear cubs in South Park in the hope that they will learn to hibernate and survive in the wild.

The cubs, which had been at the Frisco Creek Wildlife Facility since early September, were placed in their new home on February 18. The den is made out of nearly 30 bales of hay, a bunch of branches, and a snow mound for insulation. It also includes an air pipe.

According to local media, one of the cubs was caught on camera breaking into a home in Pine, Colorado, in August 2019 along with its mother and sibling. The mother was subsequently euthanized after the resident was injured trying to fight them off. Credit: Colorado Parks and Wildlife NE Region via Storyful

Video shows a customer go from shopper to shopping cart hero! Police in Peachtree, Georgia say an officer was chasing a shoplifter in the parking lot when all of a sudden a shopper watching it all go down rolled his cart into the suspect, knocking him to the ground. Police say the 41-year-old suspect is facing charges of felony shoplifting an obstruction of an officer. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
