Thanks Freddy but I had my own mixins to cook up this morning. All local stuff. Thick sliced bacon,eggs from neighbor's Rhode Island Red and Banty eggs from my daughter's friends. Sure could enjoy some of those sweet carbs you have there Fredddy but that'll wait for later :roll: ;)

Crazy warm winter it's been. I just refilled my small bin the other day. Never did bring the hillbilly bin out of the woods this winter and I never would have needed it. I've barely used 3 ton so far. Got the dump trailer emptied of it's January UAE haul so I should be set for the hand fed for next season. Gotta stock up - can never have too many years' piles a waiting :) Not too comfortable with being ahead by only one year :roll:

Enjoy the day. Gotta go meet my son at my buddy's garage. Subie time!

Another fine weekend and the cold air arrived just in time. It would be a lot nicer if that damn wind would just stop. The weather man says the warm up starts tomorrow afternoon, figures. Trees and bushes need pruned, grapes too. I can start getting the garden ready as soon as it is dry enough. Planting time will be here before you know it.

In other good news I have a 4.3 GM engine (one of SMITTY’s favorites) with an intake gasket leak. It leaks about a quart of coolant per week. I found a gasket set for under $100 but I don’t know if I want to do the job or pay someone else to do it. What a choice, save time or save money. I have little of each. The problem with being a shade tree mechanic is it takes me twice as long to do the job than a professional mechanic, and the problem with this job is removing all of the *censored* piled under the hood just to get to the job. Today’s little engines look so big under the hood and yesterday’s big engines looked so small, it’s a dichotomy.

Things to note from this past week; drive right, pass left; if you do not wish to drive the speed limit stay the hell out of the center lane; on a two lane road it is not OK to pass and run on coming cars off the road just because you have a broken yellow line.
I think this sums it up.



Daylight savings time, yahoo! Not only does the government screw me out of my money they screw me out of an hour of my weekend. Have a good weekend what’s left of it.

The Cape won't suffer too much if the prices go north...
Everybody still will hit the Beach...

Ran the coal pile down this season...
Need to either move or setup a better location for the coal...
Don't have the room for much on the seaside spread...
Location, Location, Location...
