  1. Dave, I commend you for putting forth the effort with “Fido” that you did. Many would not have tried so hard. The fact that you wept for him then and still weep for him now, four years later, tells how much you cared for him. Rest In Peace “Fido”, Rest In Peace.

  2. Why I am an American I don't normally type long winded stories in the MPT but this one is worth telling. I am dealing with a customer today that has an obvious middle European accent. His is a very nice old man and we were having an entertaining conversation. I asked him if he was from Belgium or southern Netherlands. He said he was from Belgium but has been in the USA since 1961 and is a US citizen now. I asked him what brought him to America. His eyes welled up and he said "This is going to be a long story, if I can tell it". He said when he was 8 years old the Nazis took over Belgi

  6. This cold weather has provided plenty of time to prepare all the equipment for spring fieldwork. Dad hauled 12,000 bushels of corn this month. Hauled 3,000 bushels of beans and may just finish the rest, with the elevator offering price later. We sowed 3 1/2 acres of oats/ alfalfa. Replaced a bent row unit on the planter and a faulty controller on the sprayer. The 100 is hitched to the sprayer tender. I disked all the washouts on the no till ground last Sunday with the 1486. When warm weather hits, our little IH army is ready to attack the fields!

  11. Lamachine! That's priceless!!! I come in on both sides of this. I am not a coffee snob. I can drink anything EXCEPT Maxwell House. That isn't coffee. But, like a steak, is you take it without any embellishments (steak sauce, fancy creamer, etc.), then quality counts. I really really like good (usually expensive) coffee. Too tight wadded to buy it for home use myself, but not all coffee is created equal and premium coffee IS premium coffee. For the record, Starbucks ain't it, either. I tend to appreciate an independent coffee shop's coffee. But, if we are tracking points. MT

  13. In regards to your above response to MTO above that, I BELIEVE that Mark was being sarcastic. Unfortunately sarcasm does not effectively show up in typed out text. You might not be aware of it Troy, but Mark has ALWAYS been cranky and cantankerous!!! His nephew Seth seems to think that Mark is overtired needs a nap. Seth is always telling Mark that he “needs laid”, which I assume means that Mark needs to lay down for a nap.... Such strange language that the Pennsyltuckian Mechanic and Vermontonian Electrician use with each other!!!

  15. Glad someone added the above....... I grew up on the stuff that you could either drink it or use it to patch the roof, fix leaky cattle tanks, etc. Why would anyone ruin good roofing tar by adding cream or sugar? Tried Bailey's a time or two and all that does is ruin both products. I've been inside a Starbuck's ONCE. I ordered 'black coffee', and I think they had to find someone who knew what I was talking about.

  17. Hipsters are just hippies that take a bath regularly and have enough money to buy organic food at the trendy food shops. When I was in college I got a minor in environmental studies. That put me in classes with lots of hippies. Now, I have been called lots of things in my life but a hippy was never one of those things. I always enjoyed getting into a debate with some random girl that had more pit hair than me and was wearing something akin to my Grandma’s bathroom curtains and calling it a “dress” clunking around from class to class in a pair of rubber boots from goodwill and picking

  19. WTH would I even CARE what Mr Fancy Schmancy pants drinks? My wife has this device called Mr. Coffee. It sits on the counter in the kitchen and every morning it comes on and makes gurguly sounds and fills the house with a wonderful aroma of coffee. May want to google "coffee maker" and save having to drive/park/stand in line/ and pay 6 bucks for a cup of joe. Rookies.... We have no fancy "yuppie specialty coffee shops" here. And again, you always finish with hurt....

  20. I read some where that people that drink black coffee can be psychopathic in there behavior and people that drink that froo froo coffee are likely to be the victim of black coffee drinkers. For the record I drink mine black. Hope that is not too racist to get this thread poofed. If so I apologize in advance.

  27. Last late afternoon/early evening, I was on an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm, farming! 1944 IH Farmall M, Toot and I were busy getting ready to seed. We probably should have had the oats in before now, but we've had enough snow it would have been hard to get done. Now, it's supposed to be rainy and snowy for four or five days now. So I can't predict a seeding time. We should have listened to MTMatt!, a real farmer, like I used to be 40 years ago. Mike took this from his deck and emailed it to me. Gary😉 A farmer out standing in his field took this photo of the "outfit."

I think I figured out how to get them closer but we’ll have to see. Meantime Machine shop has come up with a way to grind and polish out the groove deep on back of needles. we spent PM attaching the pick up drive side shield , which was lot more involved then it looks , lol lol , then we re adjusted brackets and permanent attached the auger belt shield . we then worked on aligning twister drive shield to get it mocked up but can’t atta

  32. I might be misunderstanding the 40 and 40 series you are referring to but I won't ever buy another maxxum, mxm , puma , or blue equivalent to these . MX Magnums are very awesome comfort and visibly but somewhat less reliable than the boxcar Magnums. We have two mx Euro tractors and are relatively happy with them (mx 270 and 230). Avoid the MX series below 105k serial number

  36. Last summer, my friend had quarts of fresh honey for sale. He parked his late 90's Cadillac out by the road along the driveway. Sign in back window read "honk horn for service ". At the sound, his wife would come to the front window and open trunk with remote fob. Quarts and lockbox in the trunk. Worked great. Hands off Covid service. 😊

  38. I have to comment on this. Over the last 30 or so years I’ve had more than a dozen rescue dogs, most as puppies but a couple that were only with us a year or two. Only one ever turned bad, adopted as a puppy but by the time he was a year and a half he had become uncontrollable, had to keep him on a leash, got loose once and took out one of our free range chickens that the other two dogs ignored. Knocked me on the ground more than once while on the leash. Snapped at me, unprovoked, did it again 2 weeks later. Decided he was becoming a danger, the next ‘snap’ might be a bite. Took him

  40. A story about duck eggs . So my friends in Santa Paula have a daughter with pet chickens . She is all grown up now but when she was little I told her about feeding Milo to them . I ship it out to her in coffee cans. Where does it all go and what is Milo used for she asked. The coop manager said the bulk of it ends up in Mexico via the Mississippi River, but a high percentage goes to Japan because they feed it to ducks which causes the egg yolk to darken which makes them more valuable at the market. As Paul would say, “And now you know t

Kind of like a witches brew really. Where is the “eye of newt”, “blood of a virgin”, or maybe “finely ground toad skins”.... barista says: That’ll be $18.67 sweetie.....

  44. I have been behind that guy so I know exactly what he had. He ordered a tall nonfat latte caramel drizzle grand , sugar free , add vanilla soy milk midway , no foam , then layer in the macchiato but not over 120°. then add some skinny hazelnut syrup to the rim of the cup. And a scone with two napkins and a side of powdered sugar .

  45. The verdict is. If you don't resist arrest you most likely don't have anything to worry about. Whether the officer made a bad decision or not in all these cases would not be a question at all if not for running and resisting
