    Did you know that your cows are out? (Or sheep, or horses, or...)

    Cows can sense a break in a fence. They always seem to go straight to them.

    geothermal questions and possible DIY

    The design software will give you the correct amount of pipe required any way you want to configure the loops, in the end slinky’s take up less space, or less digging, but you need the area available. I expect using boring machine to be much more costly, but less tearing up of the yard. All part...

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    Mine has larger sized elements (1-1/2” hole) than most, so couldn’t just pick up a replacement element, as was my initial goal. Nobody stocks the larger size on the shelf. Ordered one on Amazon. Element wrench is 1-7/8” which I have on order. I ended up buying same model Which made for easier...

    geothermal questions and possible DIY

    In my training they recommended backup. My 2 ton unit uses backup when outside temps get in the teens. My 3 ton unit never even got the backup connected, isn’t needed. I like not having an outdoor unit. Geothermal is quiet. But I agree, the advances in air to air makes cost hard to justify...

    45° Worship was good, I was song leader. Temporary mixer worked out. Will try to install new one tomorrow. Had almost 20 people at lunch today, 3 tables full. Waiting for wife to get groceries, then home for a nap. [emoji23]

    Never seen those. I will just drain the lines down if I decide to solder in new shut offs.

    That shower is looking nice!! I had a cold shower today and got to replace a water heater. Fun fun fun.

    Good morning!!!!

    Yes, you are right. Couple more turns and the nipple came out, with the rubber attached. I saw that picture in the manual, it didn’t make sense at the time. Now I get it. I put the nipple back on. On the fill side, last time I installed this water heater I used a non brass nipple, and it rusted...

    Good morning!!!!

    Plumbing is not my favorite thing. I bought some new ball valve shut offs to replace the gate valve type, but with all the running around today, decided not to go cutting pipes and soldering.
  14. buckeyefarmer

    Good morning!!!!

    Yes, there is an o ring under the nipple. But it shouldn’t be loose where it is loose, the nipple should have come out, but it didn’t Something for next week. Didn’t get the new mixer installed at church, but I got one temporary there that will do for tomorrow.

    Good morning!!!!

    Plans sure changed in a hurry this morning when we had no hot water. Washed hair in freezing water, went and got hair cut. Home Depot carries my brand of water heater, but the marathon elements are apparently larger than the normal size. My socket doesn’t fit, so ordered a dual size socket...

    Good morning!!!!

    10° and I still hear some wind. That’s -12C Water sputtering seems to be on the hot side. Might drain tank later today and check the elements. Got hair cut appointment this morning. Got the new mixer to install at church building, might go there and try it out. Everyone stay warm.

    Good morning!!!!

    Kind of slow for a crew doing it then. I’ve seen videos of crews putting pretty good size up in 2 days, including metal. I was on the 1 yr plan myself. [emoji23]

    Good morning!!!!

    19° and winds hit 25 mph. Kind of lazy day for me. Did ride a few miles on the recumbent bike. Realized another UPS with dead battery at downstairs TV, so ordered 3 more batteries to complete all the ones I haven’t replaced. Let Snagglepuss in, she was on my wife’s lap, Pebbles is on mine...

    Interesting, never seen it done like that. Probably speeds up the construction time.

    Good morning!!!!

    Last night started getting air in my water lines, sink faucet started sputtering last night. Shower did it this morning. Last time it was a hole in the well pipe, but I’ve read it could be other causes. Guess I better check it out. I’m too old to pull the well pump myself, and too cold today.

    I used to shuttle for the Boy Scouts if I wasn’t hiking with them. Maybe next nice winter day I might hike up on weaverton cliffs.

    Good morning!!!!

    Interesting, didn’t know they could connect direct like that. I haven’t bought a printer in several years. Edit -This printer does not support WiFi direct, but apparently has a history of dropping it’s WiFi connection. Their solution is use the 2.4Ghz band and assign an IP.

    Good morning!!!!

    29° 28° 27° windy and dropping fast. But at least it’s on the positive side.

    Good morning!!!!

    Was there banjo music? You weren’t far away, should have called buckeye shuttle.
  31. buckeyefarmer

    Good morning!!!!

    I’ll have to check, but probably can give it a static IP, which is my preferred method. All printing to it is wireless. Ron, there are different ratings of HDMI cables and different HDMI versions, make sure cables are right. Most aren’t labeled well, if at all.

    Good morning!!!!

    Mostly, that is WiFi printer that is dropping out.

    Retirement thoughts Past Present Future

    Yep, I just did first pass of my taxes in TurboTax. They love patting themselves on the back claiming the found all the deductions that I entered. [emoji23] My surprise was I transferred a lot of 401k to IRA, and turbo tax showed it as a lot of non taxable income.

    Good morning!!!!

    39° and sunny Spent time at the church building troubleshooting why the preacher couldn’t print. Ended up being firewall settings. Also got the copier now set as a printer. Took awhile to figure it out. One printer still loses it’s connection with the router. Installing TurboTax now. I hate...

    Retirement thoughts Past Present Future

    Yes, I just calculated what I need for paying taxes on retirement withdrawal. Most people I’ve found to be absolutely clueless about our tax system. They think their withholding is their tax, they don’t understand why or how refunds work, or how to adjust W4 to balance the refund. Heck, most...

    I have a copy cat leather man somewhere, maybe in the truck. Never used it much, but then can’t use it if I don’t know where it is.

    Good morning!!!!

    28° going to 39° Sunny. Nothing on ground here. Not sure what I’ll do today, taking a break from church work, as I’m waiting for more deliveries. Maybe put new gaskets in the water softener, never got that done, salt tank still full of water. Won’t be painting. Might install TurboTax and...

    Good morning!!!!

    Just ordered another mackie. Could have gotten an exact same model, but for $20 more went with an FX model that does sound effects (that I won’t use) but it also has USB out to record digital output. That’s a maybe I’ll use. I would have gone with less mic inputs, but they don’t have the “rude”...

    36° few light sprinkles, couple snowflakes seen. The little deer is up at the house again. Got lot done at the church building. New 8M camera is up for the driveway. Swapped out an indoor camera for a better one, they are so cheap now. 6M camera for $50, so much clearer than the old 720p one...

    It’s on my list also. Very popular. Friend of mine did it about a year ago. Only 1700 ft climb I read. . Too bad the Home Place restaurant in Catawba closed, was a good eating place.

    [emoji23] I have over 600 miles on it now. The 4K projector is great picture on my wall. My laptop supports 4k but computers at church are older and might not. We are figuring on updating them.

    Good morning!!!!

    David, keep drilling it in to him. My oldest gets it. He’s been saving for a house down payment. Still drives the Elantra from college which he bought from me. Doesn’t want a car payment. He cut way back on Starbucks and meal deliveries after tracking the costs. My youngest still hasn’t gotten...
