    Getting hay started this week

    while visiting grandma in central Florida in the 90s I heard the neighbors lawn mower just running and running with zero change in noise or rpm etc etc etc. Like 10-20 minutes? I walked around to his back yard and that's exactly how i found him. Poor old guy dropped dead cutting his little...

    Y'all Been Checkin' Lumber Prices?

    Was it east of eden? where one of the sons, anticipating a war, bought grain? futures and made a boatload of money....to give to his dad. Dad was not impressed and possibly ashamed of his son making profit by taking advantage of a war. But that is why it's called fiction.

    And regarding rain, as far as i'm concerned, Carolina is just Oregon with an accent. I've lived in both. I'm just finishing a book written by a Nobel laureate about science in general. SOS. but in it he makes the point.......it's gonna rain a lot more in certain places. I wish he told me...

    Global warming due to human behavior is a fact. Another fact is, we are gonna use the cheapest easiest thing there is, in any and all cases, and hope for the best. I've been watching "save the rainforests" documentaries for 50 years. It's an industry onto itself. As some one else said, feel...

    Share Pics of People Hauling or Towing Something Wrong

    Same thing happened to me on I 40 between Raleigh and Greensboro in the 80s. Mine came from the flat bed that was 1/4 mile in front of me. I saw the whole thing, it was like slow motion, the plywood was just floating, then....WHAM, right into the windshield! Sounded like a gun went off. I...

    I'm being the devils advocate here but.... Do you get legal advice re that contract? Did a lawyer tell you it was legit? Did a lawyer write the contract? Better put....Will it stand up in court. Many of the subs working on my new house will tell you, without illegals they would be outta...

    A kid gets terminated at work...

    I've had a bunch of employees. By my definition that means I'm personally paying them outta my wallet or worse yet, my IRA! Not a "report" or a "team member"..my employee. If they screw up or cruise, it cost me $. I've had good ones, bad ones and the occasional super star. I'm gonna take...

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

    Funny. I coached my kids base ball team, young teens. At the time I owned and ran 2 different businesses, one a restaurant, the other, a traveling salesman. I probably had less time than any other parent. I loved it. At the beginning of the second season i sent a question to each parent. Do...
