    Bayer offers $62B for Monsanto

    The April 29 2014 price for MON was <$94. Bayer made a bid for MON of $122 cash. I find this offer acceptable. If the deal goes through, I plan to take the money and buy more American owned companies :idea: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-36356022

    ASPCA wants me to contribute ....

    Seems I get on a lot of junk mail lists, but I never expected to end up on this one. ASPCA was kind enough to include a postage paid envelope, so I put most of the rest of the junk mail I got today in their envelope as my contribution :P :P :P I just made sure my name or address wasn't...

    Fix it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without...

    I admit I have already pretty much made the decision to keep nursing my round baler along and running out the clock on my haying career. I put about $2K into the baler a couple year ago which mostly consisted of a few misc parts and new spliced on the original belts. Also got a new $1000...

    Water usage to make a hamburger?

    Need some :help: here. A friend who is very anti-American agriculture in general, and particularly so toward the beef industry, sent me an article claiming it takes 450 gallons of water to make a hamburger. True or False :?: IMO, the source is quite questionable and the anti-beef...

    Anyone have an all-steel frame building for machine storage?

    I'm intrigued by the buildings in the ad for this place in a little shopper paper, so I looked up the website. Might pay them a visit to see just what they have available. http://www.aaasheds.net/steel-buildings A steel frame structure could serve my purposes now, and could easily be sold and...

    To flush, or not to flush, that is the question....

    Bought a new to me 2000 Dodge 3/4T with V10 and auto tranny :banana: Has just under 100K miles on it. This is the pickup in its everyday clothes before I bought it. It's sporting DeeZee aluminum treadplate running board and bed rails now. 8)http://boa.sd.gov/divisions/property/im ...

    2004 Ford Taurus wagon....

    Didn't want to hijack the SUV thread below, so I'll start a new thread. Does anyone have experience or opinions on the 2004 Taurus? Handful of Taurus 4dr sedans coming up on the state surplus sale along with a slew of 4dr Impala sedans. I'm thinking all other things being equal, the Fords...

    Dodge 8.0L V10....

    Anyone have one? Neighbor has a Dodge V10 and likes it. Any ideas on prices? I see the state DOT has 3 - 2000 Dodge 3/4T 2wd pickups coming up on one of the annual state surplus property auctions. I might go to the sale and see just for fun. I'm thinking a 2000 Dodge might be a good...

    Snake in the basement!......

    Ewww :yuck: .... I hate snakes! :shock: It's not my house, but in a friend's basement. :oops: The snake was on a floor joist when I arrived. Tried to herd it into a plastic bucket with a short sorting stick but didn't get it anywhere close to the bucket. The snake moved fast, down to...

    Hobby Lobby in the news.....

    I have never shopped at Hobby Lobby. Honestly had never heard of the company until quite recently. Seems there has been a bit of publicity recently around a small legal skirmish involving Hobby Lobby, and Hobby Lobby won its case. :clap: As a result of the outcome of the case, there...

    Happy Father's Day to me!

    No, I'm not a father and I don't play one on TV. :P But I went to town on Sunday after church and bought me a new toy. ;-) Cub Cadet 50" zero turn mower with Kohler engine was on sale for $2999 + tax. Tried it out for an hour when I got home. Then on Mon and Tues I mowed around the...

    Fresh Step Cat Litter.....

    .... 25 lbs is on sale at Target for $10.99 That's what the ad in the upper RH corner of my CT page here says this morning. :roll: "Fresh Step" seems like an unlikely name for cat litter. If you step in it, I don't think it will smell too fresh. :yuck: :yuck: :yuck: Just thought all of...

    AMAC vs AARP....

    I paid a 5 yr membership to AMAC this morning. It seems AMAC offers many of the same membership benefits/discounts as AARP. Best part is AMAC has none of the undesirable political baggage that has become associated with AARP. 8) I only recently heard of this group. Anyone else a member...
