    Anyone ever use the old ring and string method, you know if goes in a circle its a male, if back and forth female? Back in the day ole timers would tell the mother what sex her baby was going to be by taking their wedding band and hold it over their stomach and seeing which way the ring swings.

    dont laugh too hard until you try it, I can also find (witch) water with a forked willow limb! [​IMG] Welding rods work really well for metal pipes or septic lines!

    I have heard of that but have put much stock into something like that. Like reading tarot cards to see if you should go to work.
