    Power Washing the Tractor

    I've never understood washing a tractor. Sure, it's nice to keep the bonnet free of dust. The seat and instrument panel should be "presentable", But unless you are planning some maintenance or repair work, dirt just soaks up the grease and leaking fluids that are an inevitable part of...

    Why I quit hating soccer.....besides the soccer moms!

    You know referees were introduced into the game long after the rules were laid down. There should be a place for integrity, and not a test to "see what you can get by with.

    UFO's... What do you think?

    One might consider there may be "things" that are outside of one's awareness. You know, Unidentified things. Things that don't move in the ways a single mind can comprehend. Just give us One Free Miracle, and mankind can explain all that follows.

    That's a great theory for things that move. Let's get back to those rocks. Think of the stories they could tell. And on the other hand. Imagine... YOU have moved yourself to the most distant edge of this expanding galaxy (which way was that again?) Now imagine you are back here again. Such...

    UFO's... What do you think?

    Time is merely the measure of motion. No motion, no time. Check with any rock for confirmation. Rocks that change with time,"move". Some don't last long. Imagine being able to just "step across" to a different reality? No big to do, no high speed techno whizz-bangery. Just like being...

    What was you experience with Dog rescues?

    Too many rescue dogs are "pre-ruined". If you just want a basket case animated object of your affection, Rescue dogs are fine. Otherwise, it's a crap shoot. Check out how many animals are euthanized every day in all of our major cities. Life is too short to salvage a basket case canine.

    Quote] Essentially, Covid19 has long been shown – to those willing to pay attention – to be an entirely created pandemic narrative built on two key factors: False-postive tests. The unreliable PCR test can be manipulated into reporting a high number of false-positives by altering the cycle...

    Rust or grease, If you can hook it up between tractor and implement, Do that, and then run it for 10 minutes or so. Don't try to raise or lower the implement, that would pull on things you don't want to pull on. Just run it, and let the flex and motion do the dirty work.
