  1. Work is offering shots in the near future. I have no doubt it will be required in order to be at work or have a job in the not so distant future. I am also sure there will be exceptions for medical reasons. Just like the others vaccines. I also predict there will be travel requirements, shot record or proof I order to travel to some countries, maybe two years
  2. Yep. Uncle re-roofed the machine shed with this steel. Seems to work fine
  3. My grandmother always had bird houses and feeders out. She taught me a lot about birds and I enjoyed it and cherish the memories. When she passed I sent a donation to the National Autobon society (however you spell it, spell check is not helping) in her memory. I get mail all the time begging for more, it’s been years and more mail comes every week if the NRA would have a no contact I would donate, but they seem to spend more money than I donate asking me for more. Here is my money, list my name and I will contact you when or if I ever want to donate more
  4. The “Internet of Things”. IoT getting to be crazy and out of hand,
  5. Quit worrying about the mule and keep loading the wagon
  6. Price may be directly related to how much the shop wants to do a 6.0 R&R and warranty the job.
  7. FYI. have heard stories of the injectors failure being such that compression escapes thru the injector. So I am skeptical of the diagnosis from your shop, but who knows
  8. Get in touch with @SMiller, he lives in central Florida near Orlando and loves it. I would offer that areas like Tennessee, Northern Alabama, and similar latitudes all the way across the country to the Rockies might interest you. Check if work has fill in program and travel?
  9. Yep. Extra-tuff were the only boots to buy. Fishing industry didn’t wear anything but, almost every Alaskan had them, kids got them and handed them down to siblings. They moved to China, now your better of buying cheap rubber boot from the box store. They will outlast extra-tuff another iconic brand ruined by a new CEO fixing things. Now the only people who wear extra tuffs a trendy girls trying to look outdoors
  10. Maybe they are part of a sickle mower? I think they used to be replaceable
  11. Looks good. You make the patterns? I am kinda jealous, that’s good fab work, not a desk
  12. I do t know what he plans on winching but line locks, a good set of chocks, or a heavy spade will work just fine. If he is using the truck so much he needs air brakes a hydraulic brake truck is probably to light anyways.
  13. Been using Hytran in the IH tractors, hyguard in the Kubota, and cheap stuff elsewhere . I am seriously considering buying a drum of Mobil 424 (I think that’s the number) and working everything to one fluid . My dealer only carries Hytran in buckets, no other option, and at $90 plus a bucket I am not impressed
  14. Thank you emissions, now we are going back to big gassers. Where is the face palm emoji? sure this is a big part of it
  15. My fathers home farm blew the hay into the loft with a belt driven blower. Big thing, had a long auger on it and it would be parked in from of the barn with the pipe hooked up all summer. Was old when I was new. My great grandfather used it to also blow in silage one time that I remember. They used the pulley on the super C to blow it in. so he chopped hay with a 350, dropped the chopper (PTO and hitch) and hooked up to the wagon (PTO and hitch) brought it in and unloaded it. Then reversed the steps. Whew. I bet a third tractor would have been handy
