Yeah, yeah...if he was Japanese, he'd have a yen for something to eat. If he were Korean, he'd be won tough cookie. In Iraq, you could invite him over for some dinar. But in Brazil, he'd have to keep it real.
It was sad to read that despite his family's efforts to alter his behavior, deep down inside he just couldn't make the change. Too bad he cashed in.
But the interesting thing is that the article mentions previous hospital visits and extractions of coins. If he had stomach problems in the past and they pulled coins out, didn't anyone think to X-ray him? Glad I don't belong to his HMO!

Here is a very handy and effective device I use to dispense corn with - but it could also be used to dispense any other seed or deer feed.
I had an old feeder that had a failed motor... I made a set of brackets to attach the feeder to the rear of the 4 wheeler - the lower one encircles the feeder and has a forward section with holes drilled in the outer ends of the bracket... these holes align with two 5/16" bolts that drilled into the rack of the 4 wheeler.
The upper bracket is an "L" shaped...
