  1. A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust. The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?" Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, why not?" The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3® cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo. The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop® and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany ...Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot® that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL® database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry® and, after a few minutes, receives a response. Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the cowboy and says, "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves." "That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says Bud. He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car. Then Bud says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?" The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?" "You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government", says Bud. "Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?" "No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep. Now give me back my dog.
  2. Local guys tractor said it has not lost any fluid but I can't say if it is 100 percent mineral oil. Does not show any side effects. Going to start with a flush and see what happens. Hard to get it warm enough this time of year to test it. Funny part is I got a call from a T60?? NH owner with the same symptoms. What are the odds
  3. Anyone ever had MXM brakes fade badly but only after it gets warmed up good. Like after mowing for a couple of hours. I was thinking maybe moisture in the fluid. The brakes work great before it gets warmed up
  4. Sometime in the 80's small shack on the pier with 3 or 4 people working. Serving shrimp in a paper lined tray. Around 6 bucks for a huge pile of shrimp and fries
  5. By any chance a shack out at the end of a pier?
  6. Sorry to hear that it can be rough but not always, everyone is different. Spent last Sunday afternoon with my 60 year old buddy after getting him hoisted in the blind. His treatments have stopped and he is making the best of these last times. We joked, laughed and cried together but I will never forget the joy of him nailing his last deer. Just a run of the mill doe but she was more important than any young mans first big buck. He knows he has had a good run but he is also sad for leaving before he and his wife could enjoy easy times. I just tell him I love him and I will see him again
  7. I have watched several of your videos rebuilding your dozer. Wasn't any doubt you could do it.
  8. copied and pasted from dexter web page Can’t find your axle label? Your nine-digit axle serial number is etched into the axle tube near the center on the rear side.
  9. Boehringer Ingleheim cut the beef pharma sales team in half today. Nationwide they went from 89 to 45. Only concerned with calling on the large key accounts. Your local small vet clinics won't have the representatives assisting with issues, rebates or meetings. These guys did not meet with every producer or feedlot operator but they may have played a role in your bottom line. So far this year they have not issued rebate checks that some clinics used as the profit for drugs administered by the vet. Wish I could call them and tell them to kiss my ass
  10. I know where I want them to build the test track. They already have a circle. I wonder though how greasy the road would get with all those suits
  11. Sadly they bought Hustler .What was a fine made in Kansas ,family owned mower.
  12. “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX,” the surviving ZZ Top members write. “We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top

  17. This was reproduced in 1964 by Life Magazine regarding WW1. Farmers played a big role in both.
