Sorry, I read previous post and still didn't understand what the terms cabbing, cabs, cabachon means.
I am very new to this hobby, as I bought my daugher a cheap little tumbler for Christmas and seem to have become interested in rocks myself. I have more questions, but will make them separate posts as to keep them all simple.
God of Multiple Parallel Universes Full of Rocks and Apprentice to THE ONE.
Cabbing, cabochons, cabs, are when you cut a slab of rock, then cut smaller pieces from the slabs and shape them for use as jewelry, or any type of setting. Technically, cabochons are round or oval shaped and ground with a dome on them.
Shotgunner: no pics. I'll let you suffer in darkness

bhiatt: well tonight at 8pm is when the verdict goes public about the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, St Louis. Im curious to see what happens. National Guard is ready again. I hate to say it but I think it might get bad again for a while with the hood rats.

bhiatt: I live due east 20 miles from Ferguson but Im in honky tonk town. Not worried. There is some hit list,lol, and Collinsville, IL., the next town over was on the list. Cant remember the exact spot that was listed though.

Shotgunner: stay safe Brad, stay safe. They shoulda announced yesterday during NFL while it was pouring rain. Scheduling the announcement so far in advance seem to invite bad actors.

bhiatt: yep. I agree Shotgunner. Now the crowd is gathering on the main street in Ferguson. Gonna last all night. TV is all local news covering it live. Better not cut into my Two Broke Girls lol. kidding

glennz01: about a week away from final polish on all 80 or so lbs of my rock

Shotgunner: In Florida arsonists may be shot and killed, not much pillage there. Missouri should consider taking Florida's lead.

bhiatt: yeah they were trying to keep from that happening. Not one shot was fired by police or the national guard last night. Tonight may be different. The news was reporting seeing lots of guns in the crowd. I guess they think even more rioting if the cops start
Nov 25, 2014 17:46:08 GMT -5
bhiatt: shooting back. There were hundreds of gun fire shots last night in Ferguson. 21 fires.
