  1. Mankind has the distinction of being the only part of God's creation made after His own image. So to the Lord as well... although it says in proverbs that the righteous man has regard for the life of his beast, while evil is cruel.
  2. I'm going to operate mine as long as it will still work. It's served me well for ten years, why change now?
  3. If they are saving human life, it's acceptable but still sad. When prenatal humans are killed, it's an outrage. All life matters, but human lives are intrinsically more valuable than any critter.
  4. Rusty, I didn't agree with his policies either, but this isn't the place for degrading the potus, current or former
  5. Take them to Michigan and they're worth ten times that! :-)
  6. There are two nesting pairs on a Morrison lake, only a mile from my place as the eagle flies!! I'll never forget seeing my first eagle perched in a lone tree in the middle of a hayfield, that was about eight years ago. Still an awesome sight to see. And to think Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey as our national bird...
  7. Well I am getting "tired" of all of the rubber innuendo :-)
  8. My dad emigrated from the Netherlands, I'll always remember the liver and onions he'd make when mom was not home, she hated the smell! I enjoyed it. He always called the braunschwieger liver wurst too. Raw hamburger?! I've never heard of eating ground beef raw... might have to try it like that sometimes. Lord knows I've been in a hurry and ate some undercooked hamburgers before, and survived each time!
  9. I've enjoyed making sandwiches with braunschweiger, good stuff! I'd like to try some of that dip...
  10. In my area the average is about 140... a bit easier to pencil out at 200+.
  11. You definitely need a regular job bringing in a decent income to crop farm a few hundred acres, especially when paying mortgage on some and rent on the rest.
  12. I agree for the most part... but there's no guarantee that you'll clear $300/ acre. But yeah, those who inherited unencumbered land have NOTHING to gripe about, but always seem to gripe the most.
  13. I hope she's ok, I bet a few folks had to change their shorts after that incident!!
  14. Resurrecting an iconic machine with the next generation looking on is certainly a noble quest...
  15. Welcome to the world of tractors! They're never cheap to fix, but an IH will be your lowest cost of ownership. Looks like your help is eagerly awaiting for you to get it in operating condition :-) There's some good advice on here for you already, I hope that you can get it running smoothly without a complete rebuild, but if you must rebuild at least you'll know it will be good to go for decades!
  16. No one ever thinks an awful tragedy like that will happen on their farm. Prayers for the families involved. Be careful out there guys, and treat each day as it is, a gift.
  17. Definitely not meant to work in higher speed... does save time running back and forth for some jobs. I know the bolt on track system uses a smaller drive sprocket than a wheel/tire, reducing speed and reducing the torque and stress on drive components. That's where I figured the two speed might be handy, especially for picking rocks and similar jobs.
  18. I've been following this with interest, but no one has mentioned using loegering VTS bolt on tracks on a wheel machine... I have been thinking a two speed skidsteer with a set of the vts tracks would be the cats meow
  19. I like their pickaxe blonde as well!
  20. Money!? Lol. Merry Christmas guys :-)
  21. My 885 David Brown has the same filter, just like Bart posted. It's fine, as long as the seals are in the proper place!
  22. That looks like an expensive hobby, Awesome!
  23. You were diving in a cenote!! I'm jealous
  24. Ian, the video must have been taken down already. Risks and warnings aside, what a terrible tragedy. Burns are awful.
