    Burn barrel and diesel fuel

    There are a couple posts on TBN about how to make a burn barrel burn efficiently. I followed the instructions (kinda) of a guy from Tasmania and mine burn everything completely. While cleaning up my late mother's estate I sometimes had two barrels going every day for six days straight (she had...

    Battery based vehicles of today and tomorrow pt 2

    I hate to break in the middle of a thread but I have a question about a particular vehicle. Has anybody bought, driven, know of somebody who has the Hyundai Ioniq 5 SUV? My idea for an electric is a vehicle I would use for short trips such as five miles to grocery and back. Or the eighty miles...

    Scary, life threatening, mistake

    The guy in the original post said he had been delivering tractors for years and never had it happen before. Just glad it wasn’t me. RSKY

    Scary, life threatening, mistake

    Not me this time. Drove about an hour from home with son-in-law to pick up a tiller and box blade he had purchased. Just like his tractor he bought them sight unseen over the Internet from a dealer in Tennessee. While he was inside settling the bill I helped the guy loading the equipment and...

    Canning Stuff.

    Still using pasta sauce from two years ago. Everybody I give a jar to says it is the best. All I did was use Mrs. Wages pasta mix and my tomatoes. Same way with salsa. Have had people at parties want to know who made the salsa and I would have to tell them that I used Mrs. Wages mix. Wife will...

    kioti linked pedal

    Son in law just got a 40-hp Kioti with this. The forward pedal works just like a car accelerator. Harder you push, faster engine turns, and the faster you go. I like it and so does he. RSKY

    Lights, no lights, lights

    I have a 2014 Ford F150 with trailer package. The lights on my tandem axle trailer are not working correctly. I have been hooking it up and pulling it out of it's parking spot. Then I will kill the motor and go check the lights. The truck lights stay on for about a minute after the engine is...

    Battery based vehicles of today and tomorrow pt 2

    Was telling youngest daughter about your post. Her husband has the Tesla. Said a co-worker of hers is driving the Lightning as a loaner while they work on his vehicle. She thinks the list price was around $90,000. I didn't think they were that expensive. RSKY

    Battery based vehicles of today and tomorrow pt 2

    One of my son-in-laws has a Model Y Tesla with the performance pack. Unbelievable acceleration! He was driving from Murray to Mayfield to work which was about 50 miles round trip. Took him four gallons of gas. The same trip with the Tesla was $1 each way. I can never see myself getting rid of...

    2022 honda elite Pilot verses 2022 Toyota Highlander platinum

    My oldest daughter has a 2014 Toyota Sienna minivan. She did not want a mini, said it was 'social suicide' in her circle of school teacher friends. I finally convinced her of the utility of a minivan and she bought it. Now she needs a new vehicle. No trouble with hers but it is approaching...

    2022 honda elite Pilot verses 2022 Toyota Highlander platinum

    We had a 2011 Pilot, traded for 2018 Highlander. Got the Pilot for one reason, the 2nd row was wide enough to put a baby carrier in the center and had room for passenger on each side. Traded for the Highlander because it was a little smaller and more maneuverable. Both are great vehicles. We...

    Escalating Construction Costs

    Family was here today eating lunch after church. Once the hooligans finished and left the table to destroy the house. Well, the grandkids went out to sunroom to play, argue, and fight. Just a normal Sunday. And really, they are good, polite, considerate kids who just like to talk loud argue and...
