Maybe it'll bring back all those things the last north wind blew out of your yard!

And at least its from the south and is probably warming things up in your neighborhood, Tell Freetown Fred to open his MPD and I'll close my baro to shoot a little more heat up the chimney to send your way!!! :lol:


I saw a cabin building show a while ago where they used the rotating platform from an excavator to allow them to rotate the whole building. I thought it would be a cool thing to have one super tight wall with no windows that rotated to always face the cold winter wind.

Well as good ole HB stated, the longer this goes on, the more it swirls towards the drain.

And indeed it has............... My Mother in Law passed this morning at 11:31 AM :cry2: :cry2: :cry2:

She is now at peace and can eat whatever the hell she likes with no fear of indigestion, gas, burping, bloating ,nothing !!!!!!

It was a peaceful passing as she just stopped breathing. She has been under constant watch by at least 1 family member at all times for the past week. And that does get tiring but no one was complaining. It was for grandmom or great grandmom after all. Tensions were raised the past day or so, but everyone calmed down as she had previously wished. But as "strong willed" as she was, she just would not go......


Time to circle the family wagons on the farm. It will not be the same without her but we will persevere !!!!
