    My Dad and John Wayne.

    My Dad never met John Wayne, but we both liked him. I took a pic of my dad with the Winchester trapper I bought him for Christmas. Years later I got to working with photo programs and put him in a shot from True Grit. He never got to see it, but he would have laughed his ass off. I smile...

    Surge protector woes

    I had a surge protector fry last month. I had it for years with no problems. I read that you should replace them every couple of years. I did some research and found that Cyberpower was a pretty good brand. I replaced all of my strips and wall units with this brand. Since then I have fried one...

    Rtv X900

    I stopped by the dealer lot and seen a RTV X900 worksite. I really liked it. My concern is the diesel and hydro tranny will be to loud for enjoying a cruse through the woods. I'm also looking at a Kawasaki Mule pro mx. It has a single cylinder and cvt tranny. Seems much quieter in the videos I...

    What Lowes free delivery cost me.

    I ordered a washer and dryer from Lowes with "free delivery". Instead of backing down the driveway, they pulled down to the house. They suddenly realized that the truck was too big to turn around. I explained to them that they were going to have to back out, otherwise the truck would get off the...

    Plugged up drain.

    Hi everyone. I have a kitchen drain that is giving me a problem. It is continually getting stopped up. I have used a plunger, and that works for a bit. I have used a snake and that worked for a while as well. I have tried boiling water to no avail. I hesitate to use chemicals because it goes...

    Christmas seat time.

    I live south of Buffalo NY. So far, I have been spared the blizzard. Had the power go out on Friday for a bit, but not much snow. It did get down to -3 with 50mph winds, and that froze some pipes in the crawl space. For now, the driveway is done. Time for some Christmas pizza and beer. Hope you...

    Just missed the Buffalo snowstorm.

    I live about 30 miles south of Buffalo, NY. I was lucky and only got about 15" of snow. They say the snow band is coming back tonight. My little orange lawn mower did a pretty good job with what we had. I'll have to break out the JD if **** gets serious.

    From mow to snow.

    I'm done mowing for the year. I love it for a while, but it becomes a chore half way through summer. Today I converted the BX2680 to a snow warrior. Dropped the mower, put on the chains, wheel weights, rops, and the plow. This too will become a chore sooner than later.

    Hoarding, it happened to me, and it can happen to you. I inherited my folk's house a while back. Being the nice guy, I let my sisters live there with the understanding they pay the taxes and keep up on the place. To make a long story short, I was left with a very big mess. I was never the kind...

    BX Mower Hight adjustment dial.

    Hi all, I was trying to put the adjustment dial to TOP, but I can't get it to that point. I realize the mower has to be all the way up, but it still won't go to the TOP position.

    Hello all, I need a part for my Frontier snowblower SB1174. I's a grommet for the manual rotation handle. Part # 5RD657390. It seems you can't buy them online anymore, you have to go through your dealer. Just another thing that Deere has screwed up. :mad:
