    How many of your friends do NOT have tractors?

    Most do not. I live in the city and spend the weekends "up north". None of the city slickers have them, but a few of my northern neighbors do. I help people up there with my tractor whenever they ask and can find the time. Weekends are pretty short. Those jobs usually turn into a...

    Great story! and good on you. Another of those bands where I sadly say "Wish I would have seen them live".

    The day the music died.

    Dan McCafferty, singer of Nazareth just passed away. Hair of the Dog was such a great album. Played that vinyl over and over for years.

    Bought new pickup should I get it undercoated ?

    Living in Minnesota. I buy a new vehicle about every four years for my wife and me. She gets the new truck and I take her four-year-old truck. So, we keep them for 8 years with about 150k-170k miles on them. No undercoat and have never had a rust problem on them. Been doing this for 30...

    Foods you ate growing up that most folks don't eat today

    Thanks Moss. They don't ship, but now thinking about it. Found it on Amazon, but you have to buy in bulk. Found it on their own website, but $20 to ship for $5 cheese. Not the same stuff I grew up with but..... Will look locally first. If I order it, I'll report back after a taste...

    Foods you ate growing up that most folks don't eat today

    When I was a young lad, I used to eat a spreadable limburger cheese. I loved it. I remember it being referred to as "deer" brand" because it had a deer logo on the jar. I'd really like to try it again, but have had no luck finding anything like it at all.

    Should a new tractor come with a full tank of gas?

    My RTV-1100C came with a near full tank of gas. Worse thing ever.... When I bought it three years ago, they found one for me in Texas. Didn't get to me until December and outside temps were -20's. When I picked up up at the dealership it was already outside running, as they showed me...

    My Evolution of Burning Fires

    Love burn piles, great way to spend weekend time. Never been as large as the OP's post however. Been clearing and burning an area for our home for years. Finally built last year, and I miss it. Starting the process on another piece of land, and will start clearing other areas near the...

    New House Build (What I would do different after a year of living in it)

    Nice build! I Recently finished a new build of my retirement home. Put two refrigerator's in the kitchen. We entertain quiet often, and have always looked for extra space. One has become a purely beer/Seltzer/pop fridge, the other is strictly food. Nice to not have to walk to the garage...

    Bull thistles

    I did that exact thing just last weekend. I have new spots that pop up from year to year. It works out to be quite manageable, once I got through them the first year. The numbers get less and less over my 70 acres. Tooke me all of 20 minutes last weekend.

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    Sorry to break into this thread, but a question. I'm new to Arc Fault breakers. Our new home has a number of them, and we've had three lengthy power outages in the area in the six months there. A week or so ago this happened. In talking with the electrician who did the install, apparently...

    Caught by the inflation demon

    I found this interesting today... Guardian does sell glass to residential window fabricators. "Wow. Well on a day that it was announced U.S. Inflation was at its highest rate in 40 years, another bombshell was dropped. The news, in case you missed it, was a 40 percent price increase on glass...
