  1. ...to muster the back country of the Station, the rivers throw up some challenges... first picture is looking down at the 'type' of suspension bridge, on the Wairau River....and you can see why the dogs are not that excited to cross it....second is Nathan trying to haul his big 'huntaway' across the bridge...third .....two hounds across....and waiting...fourth, looking back to true left side of the river...fifth picture is the Lees Creek, a side creek, suspension bridge.....dogs are happy to swim over, the creek is not as intimidating as the Wairau River...next is a mob drifting down Coldwater Creek Valley....and finally, with the mob increasing , about several hundred are crossing the main, Wairau River , heading for Stockyard Flat ...and the yards ...

  9. Brother went to Wyoming last weekend for the opener of public land shed antler hunting. We have a friend who lives there. He borrowed my pack and I told him to take some large zip ties to attach any horns to the pack. It worked.

  12. In the latest issue of Farm Show magazine a guy suggested using a zip tie to hold a roller chain together while you are putting the master link in. That's one I'm going to try.

  16. scary stuff Ace.... There would be an answer to the ''non -speak- about ' issues facing us today.....and ironically the proponents of such nonsense would no doubt be the first to show their ribs... Pigs....farmed pigs always seemed to have the old ''nose ring'' ostensibly to stop them rooting Female and Male hippies....always seem to have nose rings and other bits of extraneous iron hanging off various body parts I worked for a couple of that nature..many years ago...upon the umpteenth trip to extract my owed dollars...I asked them if those nose rings stopped them rooting ... In Australasia (Aus and NZ )..the word ''rooting'' has many connotations...including a 'slang' for exchanging body fluids.. ''join the dots'' !! Mike

  18. Friend = acquaintance college = school of higher learning (supposedly) her = the female student I helped who happened to be very easy on the eyes plate of cookies = chocolate chip if I remember correctly. sadly, no euphemism here. They were just small round cookies and nothing extra. She was a very nice girl with moral values and quite intelligent. We had some good, in depth conversations about life. Did I mention she was hot? Nothing more than words were exchanged and I’m ok with that.

  19. I'm going to nominate a piece of pipe. 4' long 1" pipe is one of the most used tools in my shop. It's a pry bar, a handle extension for the breaker bar, you can hang small parts on it for paint, or use it as a hood prop. A million and one uses.

  21. I had a friend in college who had someone hit her car a day or so before needing to travel home several hours. I drilled holes in the plastic panels and stitched them back together with zip ties so she wouldn’t have pieces trying to fly off. Got a plate of cookies out of that deal. 👍🏼👍🏼

  23. My parents and my sisters family each adopted/rescued these girls this winter. Sisters. Labra-golden-doodles….they think. They’ve each gained about 15pounds. The white one is the new farm dog and the brown one rides shotgun in the veterinarian service truck. So they went from being homeless to gainfully employed as well

  24. Had a customer years ago wanted a 400a service on a small ranch style house. Guy was one or 2 sandwiches short of a picnic, wouldn’t specifically say why he wanted so much power, but claimed to do “government contracts” . anyway among many other pearls of wisdom he shared was that he never boarded a plane without several very large HVAC zip ties, reason being the would clear security but if there ever was a terrorist on the plane , or if he were attacked. if he were able to get one over the guys head and give it a good yank, the offending party would be far too distracted to cause any more trouble. that , IMO is the best use i have ever heard of for a zip tie.

  25. The basic pocket knife is needed to get those lids off the the 5 gallon pails. Scrape grease and rust, cut baler twine, do vet work and peel an apple later on. Always in your pocket and always handy.

  27. ...the "Toll Road "" was only opened for a few weeks this year..... due to ongoing flood damage....unusual for this area and for this time of year....however the weight of opinion, from minds greater than mine.....is the collective breaking of wind, by the 800 cattle up there is the obvious cause .......apparently.... I used to buy rifles ..(proper ones... ) from a dealer in Newark NJ....He was a neat bloke...but he always had trouble with the Postal Service...and one day he phoned me up here in New Zealand and said something like this.....""If they have two eyes..two ears ...a mouth..hands even.....but no f***ing brains...they work for the Newark Postal Service.."....this unsolicited testimony, in reference to fellow ''Homo Erectus" was delivered in a Humphrey Bogart accent...how I laughed...but sadly that comment applies all over the globe...especially to our New Zealand 'single stomach ruminants''...to wit..The Climate Crisis Experts...sigh......The Greenies...However I digress..... We were frantically busy some weekends...particularly over Easter.....due in part to our infamous "Red Queen ' standing on the necks of so many regular folk for so long....so when the foot was lifted and petrol was a mere $12 .00+ ... a US gallon equivalent..... the folks went driving....lots coming via the ferries from the North Island to visit the Mainland.... I played my usual pivotal role in the driving of 435 calves and about 200 cows , about 15 miles down to the Homestead flats.....I get to drive the Ute and horse float back down....and open the many gates on the way...plus make sure no one is on the , at times , narrow road.... The rest of the cows that are deemed morbidly obese...are pregnant and winter over up in the flats and vmountains, without supplementry tucker...No trouble at all.... Few pictures....not good ones of the cattle..I am always in the wrong place....one of a neat old Model "A"....with 1935 I believe, V8 wheels....Left hook as well..(we had a 4x4 Maserati come through..unusual ) a few Canada Geese...(thousands in the NZ high country...)One of our RP members, @MacAR believed the geese took a wrong turn down near Albuquerque.....but that is subject to confirmation................................... Put a stove ..homemade some time gone for our shed, after our house burned down..back in "91...in the old Accommodation house in which we stay whilst up in the boonies...It replaced a totally inadequate pot belly...Picture of a frosty morning , taken on a phone thing Oh...picture of the ''tops' where the red stags were roaring , a few weeks back....a normal view..then a closer view .......and an arrow that was imbedded into an animal....through the back steaks...Animal ok...Farm Manager very angry....Winter pic of the old Accommodation House Mike

  36. Showing off a bit here. This ol' senile duffer took this photo of a Great Falls, Montana plumber's cargo today. I used my computer skills to draw a sloppy black arrow to the valve of this plumber's Prestolite gas cylinder valve in the back of his pickup on the left side, here in Helena. We were stopped at a stop light and he started to pull away, but this iPhone 13 took a pretty good picture, before I had to move. Gary😁

  44. It's not going to get better any time soon. I expect full vandalism in the not very distant future. We know how to create things to free up personal time but as a society we clearly do not know how to manage our personal time. Add to that the self-important attitude and air of moral superiority then we get people who feel it is their right to interfere in the lives of others.

  45. Is the float set correctly? Is it rubbing on the sides of the bowl? Is the choke operating correctly? Turn the lower (main fuel) adjusting screw in all the way to its seat and back it off 1.5 turns. Top screw should be seated, then backed out one turn for initial adjustment.
