Core Values - Inside Traders Guiding Principles

1.    Be socially skilled

Make interesting connections.

Be true to you, be passionate, and be caring.

Treat yourself and others well; we all make mistakes.

Stimulate variety in personality and culture.

Encourage transparency and surely be honest.

Acknowledge that disagreement is okay.

2.    Express yourself

Create a vibrant medium to encourage participation.

Seek and celebrate a diversity of views.

Allow others to feel good expressing themselves.

Be a host, not a tyrant. The community owns itself.

An unpopular, thought-out decision or thought is often good.

Try new things. Succeed and fail graciously.

3.    Respect your private human

You are not required to share more than you are comfortable with.

Having information doesn't give you a license to use it.

Allow people to be as anonymous as they choose, including yourself.

Value the openness afforded by anonymity.

The right to know you is afforded by your personal expression.

4.    Be mindful

Be aware of yourself, others, and things going on.

Make decisions based on your life goals.

Thinking "that's the way it's always been done" is lazy.

Be conscious; explore options and impacts of potential paths.

The group is not always right.

Wheels don't always need reinventing.

5.    Just do it

Improve upon something you love.

Turn thoughts into ideas and then create it.

Break out of your current box from time to time.

Find your zone between progress and perfection.

Build for today and tomorrow

6.    Be part of something bigger

Life is better when "you have fun" as part of a community

Lighten up - we are only here for a short while.

Celebrate life: recognize success and reward it.

Become part of the larger family.

Contribute your uniqueness for all to appreciate.

Do your part to help the collaboration you enjoy grow.

      bump give ice reports if you can. just don't go on any ice to give a report, be safe.   I know my 300 acre lake in aitkin froze  over last weekend, but ice depth could vary greatly this time of year.

      Anyone know of the lake is froze over? Or how much ice is on the lake if it is?

      I’ll be out looking tomorrow... Have a spot in mind that I’m optimistic about. Which direction from downtown were you?

      Got the hangers today and really like them. I did have to drill a slot so they would work but easy peasy. The metal can be bent a bit to get the angle wanted. Moved the turkey fans to a different room and centered the 3 euros. I like the way it ended up.     New Age Taxidermy Head Honcho European Mounts on Amazon Smile

      The holidays are coming to the Governor’s Residence! Foresters from the Department of Natural Resources and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota harvested the official state Christmas tree Nov. 16 from the Nemadji State Forest. The tree, which is approximately 60 years old, will decorate the Governor’s Residence in St. Paul. “This year’s tree is absolutely gorgeous—tall, full, and almost perfectly shaped,” said Jean Mouelle, the DNR forester who selected this year’s tree. “It’s an impressive example of a balsam fir.” Each year, DNR staff chooses the Governor’s Christmas tree from one of Minnesota’s 59 state forests. Although the tree is always harvested on the Friday before Thanksgiving, the search for the perfect tree begins months beforehand. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. The tree also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped, and where foresters can easily remove it from the forest and load it onto a trailer. The tree will be set up at the Governor’s Residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, and lit Monday, Nov. 26. Information about viewing the tree can be found at www.mn.gov/admin/governors-residence/tours/schedule. Half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota each holiday season, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees provide an environmentally friendly decorating option during the holidays because they store carbon during their lifespan and can be chipped for mulch when the season is over.

      Should get the hangers today and will post info. I see that mountain Mikes has them also. Built to fit in the hole in back. The ones I ordered are for the bone skull so hopefully, dont have to send them back. Just got Marks done.  16 inch inside. Mine is 15 1/4. Not monsters but pretty neat. Marks biggest so far.

      I typically mount with a wire hidden behind the brain cavity routed through holes in the plaque to a screw behind the plaque.   Curious about this angled hanger, it tilts the nose of the skull away from the wall? Do you have a link? I like that idea, might have to rig something up when my euro is ready.

      Was around both lakes yesterday and they appear to be locked up. Shouldn't be long now.

      I hate when I am walking back to vehicle and they have roosted partway and I didnt know it, then they explode and I freak. LOL

      Bow hunting the other day I had a flock of about 20 come in at last light to roost in a nearby tree. No way a deer was going to come in with all that racket! It was kind of odd to see them hop from tree to tree but at the same time cool to see! Graceful and quiet they were not!
