    Home rent prices are unreal.......

    Those of you that have the desire to stay in the rental business should move from residential to commercial property. Your customers have some stake in the game. Once a business is established, they want to keep the same address and keep it maintained. Write a strong lease and warn them up front...

    The way it was.

    Hurley Our Memories run along the same lines and I would wish the same for my grandchildren, but I'm afraid those memories will die` with us. I often think that we lived in the greatest generation. We saw the industrial revolution transform the way we lived without stopping our freedoms...

    Moved and have tentatively opted to change my whole life..

    Thats commonly called a diving pool. Think they have made the boards against the law to install any longer. Here's a math problem for you. Calculate how many yards of fill sand or dirt it will take to backfill and create a garden. Keep that answer handy because you will think seriously about...

    Moved and have tentatively opted to change my whole life..

    Just looked back at the picture of your pool. Was that a diving pool with a deep end? If so the G3 may not work for you. Hope you find something that works because if you have to clean it manually, you just thought you cussed those beavers. It will attract relatives tho! Lol. Hope you and your...

    GB, I've used a Zodiac G3 for years. Mine runs year round and I replace it every 2-3 yrs. Works well if you don't have steps or ladder in your pool. They state it will work around steps but I have to occasionally jump start it out of the corner by steps.

    Daily Chuckle

    Reminds me of the older gentleman sitting at the hotel bar when a 1st class looker slides in next to him. She whispered in his ear, " For 500.00 I'll do whatever you want me to do" The old man looks around then pulls his billfold out of his jacket. He peels off 5 big ones, looks her straight in...

    1946 or 1947 family affair

    I recall helping my grandfather bale with a similar baler except it was powered by a Wisconsin single cylinder I believe instead of the horse. I know he could not have afforded such a baler, so I assume he either rented it or traded labor for its use. I was always amazed with the wooden blocks...

    Calves newly weaned weight gain

    Jeannie I'm not sure what you mean by WSC corn. I have used crimped corn in the past thinking that passed more to the animal then whole corn before they pass it through. Haven't seen crimped corn mentioned. Wouldn't use cracked corn or what they sell here as cracked corn for chickens.

    Faster Horses, i've got you beat by a few months. Turned 77 in December. Sold the last of my cows in the fall. My health is not allowing me to properly care for them and the farm. I had cattle for many years even though I always worked away from the farm. Mostly Angus. Got my start hauling...
