    OMG. I haven’t heard anyone else even say Wordstar in years. I started with an Osborne computer in November of 1981. CPM, 2 floppies and a lot of cussing.

    Darn double taps.

    The media must have gotten the new Woke upgrade software. Advanced spell corrector. Found this comment elsewhere: The word "field" is a racial slur according to the woke community. Perhaps "acreage" would be acceptable. I was once corrected giving directions. ‘And then go straight’. Apparently ‘straight’ is now a stereotype slur. The driver was just kidding but it made my blood boil. I wonder what spell checker would have chosen.
  4. Just moved up from an iPhone X to an iPhone 14 Pro. The camera is absolutely amazing.
  5. I’ve got two complete 1958 Dodge truck 354 hemis. Plus an intake manifold from a D900 - 2 single barrel mounts. Quite cool looking. I’ll get a pic later this weekend. I am also considering a double deuce carb/tbi setup using this: http://autotrendefi.com/efi_97.html
  6. I had the 5250 detailed by a shop some 60 miles away. I think a clean machine helps crossing borders. Especially into California.
  7. I bought this near Carbon Alberta and brought it into Montana with nothing more than a hand written receipt. Border patrol/customs/whatever was very pleasant to deal with. Unlike the primates at the Ontario border into Michigan. Felt like I was going up before a firing squad for bringing plow parts across the border.
  8. Found out yesterday that JD has about 2500 of these switches sitting in a warehouse in Milan, Illinois. Cost is just shy of $98.00. USA or India I wonder.
  9. I ordered a new flasher switch for a Case through eBay and did not get what was represented in the listing. Pic shows Made In U.S.A. It did not show that on the part I received. It said nothing of the sort. The box indicates from India. FCS35. I confronted the seller about that: Hi There, This is the only one we currently have available. I've notified the according team about this listing & it will be revised. The pic wasn’t removed yet but they raised the price by more than $10.00 of what I paid last week
  10. I’ve been contemplating this one. Is it what it says? 1954 with pony engine.
  11. That’s real cheap, in Sacramento, diesel $7.29
  12. See if this outfit would part out the two brackets you need. Looks like a 510 or 520 loader to the right.
  13. California allows for tongue transfer weight. My rear hitch can handle 2000 lbs of weight and tow 20,000 lbs. Depending on balance, keeping a record of where my equipment should be parked at on my 16k trailer, I can haul a payload of 13,700 lbs. To help calculate my tongue weight, I just by chance remembered recently, having this scale lying around. I’ve had it for years. Still works and calibration is spot on. The hooks are rated at 2200 lbs
  14. It was a great week for a drive through the country.
  15. Bought all new tires for my 5250 back in October 2019 (pic). The rears were $3200 dismounted and mounted in Alberta Canada. Bought all new tires for the dually early last year. Haven’t mounted the rears yet but did pay up front for the service.
  16. I actually saw this name listed in the Chula Vista, California phone book near San Diego in the mid ‘70’s. Was in the navy back then.
  17. White knuckle for sure. But I think no one has anything over the guy at 33 seconds. That bicyclist is crazy nuts. Almost left me with my cluster phobic anxieties.
  18. Dad bought new a 656 utility gas hydro. We would have been better off painting it yellow. After a year IH credited dad 100% of money spent and we got a 656 utility diesel standard trans, TA. And it’s still in the family.
  19. I’ve been very lucky buying over the internet. Mainly Craigslist. Probably 14 plows, a Kewanee disc, a Quicke 660 loader, Maschio flail mower, Case 5300 grain drill & on & on and just today a crazy powerful motorcycle in Virginia. The iPhone and its FaceTime have been my guiding eye. And it’s great for sizing up the person I’m dealing with. I’ve met a lot of nice people this way and stay in contact with many of them.
