  1. Tape off the end of a paper towel roll and fill with FFF black powder (it will hold almost a pound), insert a long piece of cannon fuse (both bought at local Cabela's or other outdoor store), place it in the hole, light the fuse and get away. Note: it's best to test the speed of your fuse without the powder so you can calculate how much you need based upon your personal ground speed!
  2. Lots of badgers around here but none on the hay meadows. It's all sub-irrigated and too wet for badgers, gophers, ground squirrels, etc. Did have some otters decades ago that built slides down the bank to the lake. When those dried up they turned into tractor wrecking monsters. Grandpa lost the front end out of an H on one.
  3. Fair amount of time around Fawn Lake. Not much North of there though and nothing East of 61.
  4. You must be in that Fawn Lake region. Or is that too far West of you, Jeff?
  5. Bring on the steak! 🥩
  6. Then the wind hit. Trees down everywhere, garden sheds missing, roofs are torn off, even blew over a coal train. Not sure if it was tornado or micro bursts but sure did a lot of damage.
  7. Wheat is looking a little rough this morning.
  8. The pucker factor has sure risen. We started out the year with pretty good moisture. Would sure take some more rain but don't need the "great white combine" in front of it!
  9. I suppose it could have been worse. The rain with it was needed.
  10. Mother nature decided to give us a little moisture tonight. Too bad it was in the frozen form.
  11. What the **** is an old paratrooper gonna do with a rocket ship??? 🤣
  12. Thanks for fact checking this. I stand corrected. At least they aren't made over seas (yet still close) and have a life time warranty. Quick internet search found this. "Typically between 1-3% of the raw material to make wood pellets is made up of a binder when making wood pellets."
  13. Me too. Every morning I wake up and say "why do I do this day after day"! ?
  14. Hated the idea of eating food cooked on a grill that used binding agents and chemicals to form the pellets so I went the Big Green Egg route. Lump charcoal is pure carbon and burns completely clean. Sear steaks at 800 deg, bake at 350, smoke at 225, and cold smoke below 100 deg. Comes up to temp faster than a pellet grill and stays as hot as you want it no matter what the temp is outside. They also have a lifetime warranty and are made in the USA. I hate the idea of a foreign product with Chinese parts.
  15. Poor Master Lock will be out of business soon at this rate. The woke culture is out of control.
