  1. Mto , I agree with your comments above , i joined this forum 7/4/07 even though my profile says 2013 that came from Computor crash and Re registering , point I want to make I too have made so many friends in this group and it’s like a family . It’s a place one can go to and get understanding because we pretty much have the same personal values . my frustration comes from wanting to save the group and trying to figure out how . we have been told several times to back off on certain topics , I noticed that BJ let’s it go awhile before being poofed in past . Now they are sending us a real message . what are we going to do as a group ? Do we want it all or are we willing to give some to gain some. There has to be a way to satisfy the hosts and keep us whole . Seems to me many commenters are like the person in the Will that is warned if they fight the will they will receive 1 dollar and no inheritance. I have seen that happen twice once it involved 160 acres yet he fought and got a dollar . I don’t want us to be that guy ! let’s try to put our heads together with workable solutions and suggestions that we could take to BJ and to hosts and perhaps not loose it all. Show them that coffee shop is important enough to save . we need our IH friends and I H prayers and IH encouragements every day especially these days . MTO thank you for your comments tony
  2. Hey Guys , Keep it the way it was ! No one wants to think outside the box and throw out possible solutions, try to save coffee shop ? I am not going to argue about throwing out few suggestions to the problem , don't see any other suggestions being floated all I see is the same childish whining that has ruined coffee shop. In life everything has a shelf life perhaps Coffee shop has reached its; use by date. Keep pining for the way it was and badgering the hosts who provide it free, (I am sure they do not need these headaches) and your going to whine up with SH*T and learning to suck eggs on another forum. Start working on solutions to keep coffee shop going. Tony
  3. Mike , what you described is what coffee shop is about learning about other areas , other farming methods , way other people with same interest as us live and do things . what I am referring to is the posts that entice people into arguing about stuff they can do nothing about on this forum , but keep people in a negative state of mind . the news reporters do a good enough job of that. thank you Mike , tony
  4. IMHO, the coffee shop is to discuss items pertinent to IH equipment, IH shows, Pulling, Parades , Encourage and embrace new collectors and restorers , Ag , Construction, and Businesses that relate to IH and collecting and restoring, comment on current affairs and an opportunity to encourage our fellow members with positive thoughts when they are hurting . However, not to RUMINATE in world and political affairs because your not going to resolve it behind a key board. No one is listening they are waiting to just shouting at each other keeping everyone in a tizzy ready to pound on the key board. I know the urge ! We all know the world appears to be upside down these days but marinating in the stew isn't going to do anybody any good. Best way is get to your City Council, School Board ,etc. meetings and vote to make a difference. Believe you me, that I respect all the people you mention above , but this is not the place to hold town hall meetings. Respectively , Tony
  5. Just a thought , Since RPF is to support RPM , Why not with subscription to magazine charge an additional fee to access the forum. The old adage you get what you pay for , may be at play here. Over the years we have lost so many substantial form members and in recent years Coffee shop is turning into a B.S. platform for anything. IN Last couple years I have participated much less in Coffee shop because its the same guys churning the same old crap. I scroll though and for most part feel its not worth replying and its sad, I love this forum and have made so many lasting friends on here over the years , Majority don't post here anymore , still have few that I Cherish Their friendships on here but we have lost lot of IH wisdom and dedication over the last few years I enjoy the General and the restorations board they were still pretty solid but will probably get diluted now with crap The pay to play idea would separate the true fans from the B.S'ers . Or the men from the boys. IMHO. Sorry for the harshness Guys but step back from the trees to see the forest. Tony

  19. I empathize with you. Seeing what is going on in all levels of our country makes one confused and angry. Focus on praying that your Son is shielded from all evil. Prayers from here. Tony
  20. Thank you , I fell in love when AKWelder posted a picture of it on RP coffee shop that he had come across , it was for sale in MN from the Estate of the fella that built it and operated it till he passed . He used it to feed his beef cattle and reversed the loader to gain more traction in snow winter feeding it’s pretty unique and fun to drive . Always draws people with lots of questions and positive comments . its going to get moved into toy shed here shortly to make more room in shop . I had it in shop doing little odds and ends to it during baler project dry spells , lol still have more things I want todo but it’s fine for now. It’s a work in progress when I need a fill in . Three things I want done is replace exterior engine gaskets the are seeping from age , paint steering pedestal , ( I built this pedestal because he had gauges and switches mounted on top of propane tank, a no no imho ) go through front steering bolster , I think it needs bushings , and contemplating changing out aftermarket front wheel and fork for the factory fork and 16 “ wheel and tire . I put new rims and tires last fall and change the wheels because of welding and cracks on old ones
  21. 8/20/21 John , Sal , and I worked Re arraigning tractors so 71 baler could claim her place as shed queen. she has showed us that she can bale and tie , so now relegated to tell stories of her history . I had to buy a lift in order to keep everything inside . today was our first arrangement , I am sure not the last . pictures of our arrangement today . 806 LP is in balers stall and next up to find out her noisy problem ! Red kid has found its spot , probably will need to cover it but for now want to enjoy it . next week we start Almond harvest and for sure it will need covering , harvest is very dusty . last pic my work Pu now fits in same stall with red kid and la case
  22. Prayers from Ca. Keeping your little Guy in our thoughts and prayers along with you and your family. Tony
  23. Yes , will have vintage air. Dash will be all red ,no dash pad , like Red kid, It will have more gauges, tach and clock, I think , Its been so long since we dealt with that. Upholstery near same, not sure of floor yet rug or not, I prefer a rug but we'll see see what they have available from their Scout builds. Being its a work truck motif will influence. Tony
