    Pros and Cons of allowing Cell Tower on Property?

    Do they have a choice ? I wouldn't do that. Give a little now, it will be an acre later (so to speak), not to mention the Health Hazards / Implications of having all that "energy" near you. Associated Migraines etc would make it impossible for my wife. oh, and they would need general...

    Date me

    I'm pretty sure that in about 1972 when I was 8, I received a Captain Burl Ives Greatest Hits vinyl album. It was my FIRST album that was personally mine, and I kinda cherished it.

    The questions about invisible fence for dog

    I think our 150 lb Anatolian Shepherd would not even flinch if it walked through the radius border of our PET SAFE (?) wireless fence, in pursuit of chasing off the bear that resides here. has a headquarters transmitter, special dog collar(s), about 100 marker flags (for training and measuring...

    Good Morning (though for me it's still night). It was an interesting Saturday. Began with the Men's Breakfast from our church. Probably 40 of us went to a local cafe, ran by church members, and had a good breakfast. The adjoining motorcycle museum was open also and some of the guys went...

    Which end of the egg comes out first?

    Some of my 60 + chickens are named, and they know who they are :) They understand short phrases... get out (of the garage), get off of the car, come here, get lost, leave the dog alone, dinner is in an hour ... the looks are hilarious. They're favourite respone / phrase to me is Feed Me. I love...

    Which end of the egg comes out first?

    I'm still going with the chicken ... referencing Genesis 1 (NIV) 20 And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and...

    Have trailer prices started to drop in your area?

    I have been looking for a 20-22 ft car hauler trailer. Just saw a trailer posted for $2500 and I sent a message, for more details. I think it is probably only a 16 footer though. I hope to have a look at it today.

    Good morning!!!!

    Update - they are sending me a reimbursement, not sure how much. Because I paid by DEBIT, they are sending a CHEQUE, that is the only way that the Finance Department can process it. Little Victories ... mostly on principle. Had they not chewed me out at the dump scale, and told me not to...

    So, I threw a bunch of money in a well and came home to find this...

    When I bought the Kubota, it was a fine decision between that and a Kioti CK2610 with FEL and BH. I was really impressed with both, had some seat time on both, and in the end decided Kubota, because of the dealership connection that I had established. Both dealerships were an hour's drive away...

    Car lift in garage

    We had an attached 30 x 30 double garage / large deck built about 8 years ago. I was at work when the concrete was poured, so I have no idea how thick the concrete floor is. (?) The 2 bays are suitable for vehicles, they have standard 8 x 12 ft doors, but I never considered putting a hoist...

    selling my Kubota BX23s

    hoping that True Temper and Roger can connect and see if anything works for a deal between them. Negotiating through the TBN site takes a bit of time and Roger, being a fairly new member here, may not yet realize that there are messages pending. That's a nice tractor. All the best PS - I...

    Three children, one adult dead in farm tractor crash in York County, PA.

    it makes me wonder if the tractor was being partially driven on a weak shoulder as it avoided obstructing the road traffic ... one side on gravel, other side on pavement. and weight imbalance / seating on the trailer itself. yes it's a sad event, and condolences for those and the community...

    eli b

    could it have accidentally been bumped out of neutral, and / or is just on the "edge" of neutral but in another gear ? do you need to apply the brakes prior to starting the tractor ? is there a suffcient level of fuel ? again, as others have mentioned ... seat sensor safety ? all the best.
