Show Description
Shep claims that after reviewing records of some of his past shows he has been backsliding. He has not lived up to his New Year's resolutions. He takes a phone call who claims to be backsliding. Didn't do very good in his first semester vowing to do better in the second. Did even worse in the second and vowed to do better in the third semester - now he's in summer school. Shep talks about Randy in Burma while he was in the Army. The sacred cows and how to keep them away - with the use of a 750 volt power transformer and some wire. Heat and the way it affects a person. Shep tells the story of when he was 16 and started working at the steel mill in the 40 inch soaking pit.
