    Local natural gas company is sending out advisories to cut gas usage during the cold snap. Apparently their gas purchase arrangements are such that three days of heavy usage will exceed their allotment and incur heavy penalties. Sounds to me like the purchasing department needs to get its crap together.....a 3 day cold snap is nothing unusual around here.
  2. Been watching this....best I can tell - the stimulus is an advance on the 2020 federal income tax refund. I've been looking into how to opt out and not receive it...not much luck so far.
  3. Several friends have doorbell and internal cameras in their homes connected to home Wi-Fi that they can remote view on their phones. I hope they don't walk around their house naked much as none of that stuff is very hard to hack.....
  4. Nothing new - this has been going on for months virtually everywhere.
  5. Not bad tractors - 2 things....cracked heads from poor operating practices (improper warm up/cool down and running low of coolant) The other is be careful of loaders on them as the block area has no frame rails and can get distorted from heavy loader usage.
  6. You got to remember the demand for vehicles will drop dramatically as us old farts continue to die off...... Probably 3 out of 5 youngins I see applying for jobs now do not own any transportation (or anything else for that matter) or have driver's licenses. And they have no desire to either, they are perfectly happy using public transportation. They don't care that the job schedule varies and they would need to be at work during times the busses aren't running.....they just shrug their shoulders and stumble out the door and back to their parent's basement again. Lately most are
  7. It's just lip service to placate the new administration and it's supporting voters. Kinda like telling your 6 year old kid you'll buy him a pony when he grows up and gets to be 12. When the administration changes next time the course of things likely will as well.
  8. I went through the same conversation with my doc last week too. He confirmed my understanding that it doesn't prevent infection and doesn't prevent transmission from you to others if you get it - just prevents the severe symptoms in those vulnerable to them. It should help, but hopefully something better that prevents the infection will come along soon.

  10. I had 2 - 80' plus cotton woods in front of the folks house that have needed to come down for years that I finally got this summer. Rented a 120' JLG boom lift over the weekend and got after it. The $1200.00 for rental was way cheaper than the $3500 estimate to take them down from the tree guy.
  11. Not in any hurry to take it. Would like to wait and see what happens. The vaccine seems to mitigate the severe symptoms in those that are susceptible to developing them and not do anything to prevent people from getting or transmitting it. So the vaccine won't do anything to stop the spread. No doubt a certain number of people after getting the shot will stop taking precautions and spread it even faster. The other elephant in the room is that this situation is creating an huge group of germophobic people that fear viruses / diseases to the point that they will never feel safe ag
  12. Yup - the other side was the newer forged axle already when I got this machine. The hardest part was getting it back up in the air and stable. This happened close to a ravine and it took a lot of wood to get a solid enough base to lift it. Luckily the housing landed inside the rim when it fell and it didn't go all the way down. I had to replace the bottom piece of tin work and I put a newer drive off of a 1680 on - it wasn't horribly expensive thankfully. It was just a lot of work by myself.
  13. It has been one of those years all over.
  14. It's bad in Sioux Falls too, they are hanging out in packs now - the city made it illegal to give them anything a while back....as expected that had zero results.
  15. Yup - there were a lot of ways to get by back in the day. When the oil pressure got too low.....drop the pan, polish the bearing journals up with emery cloth, wash everything up as best you could with gasoline and put it back together again. Used to find a lot of main and rod bearings with check blanks behind them to tighten them up.
