Hi,

We just got a 6 inch snowfall and things are bitterly cold therefore very dangerous for everyone. I now live in a small town and do not have to worry about clearing a long lane or access to my barn. That task(s) were a killer in itself.

Just paid a guy to clean my short driveway. Worth every dime to keep from having another heart attack.

I am going south for a while to warm these bones up and get some golf in. With low gas prices the trip will be cheaper...

Hi,

It's snowing and wet with wind. Overcast with no sunshine for the past few days. I like to walk at least twice daily since I no longer live on the farm. Hard work that I cannot due any longer because of my health. I walk to my iPod music to get a good cadence for cardiovascular workout for my heart. I could use my bicycle but the area is covered with snow & ice. In my younger days I delivered mourning & evening newspaper routes using my bike with riser bars along with...

I contacted Dell.com via chat to get a replacement card. The rep replied it would cost $99 for the card. I asked him if the unit supported Bluetooth? He stated no! I asked for a compatible device that supported through 'N' and support Bluetooth. He came back with a device that met these specs for...

Hi,

Just got a contractor to setup a C6 base pad for the new Shop building. The base took 32 tons of C6 rock. The building is due for completion in 3 weeks. I will need to run the power underground with tie in to a sub-circuit in the house. Service head is large enough to support expansion. It won't be long before I start moving tools to the shop. Really anxious now to get this project closed so I can get more work done before summers end.
