Ol’gal on the news said “we” could see pork shortages by next week......speak for yourself Norah O’Donnell :LOL::ROFLMAO:

let’s try this again, since my first query apparently got censored.....can someone explain to me what is “sensitive content” about pigs in a horse trailer?
Its probably because they're dirty, hopefully you wash them before letting them into the house.

UniFi

Yeah. All 5 APs are UniFi as well as the POE switches and all the cameras. Awesome stuff. Even a moron like me can work with it

Have 3 AP’s myself and the gateway, just ordered the 24 port switch. I’m still torn on cameras though. Was looking at Lorex or amcrest.

Been putting the tomato plants in for the past 3 nights was 28 degrees and heavy frost this morning, looks like maybe 2 or 3 more cold nights and then warmer nights and they will be ready to plant in the garden after that. Go on my days off on the 14th and looks like I will be having some wilted lettuce and green onions them, yum yum.

Hauled a load of bullrock for a rock bed I’m working on for the side of the house. I’ll need to pick up a few concrete blocks tomorrow on the way home. Mowed, trimmed, and blew off everything. Going to grab a 10’ 6x6 on the way home tomorrow as well to revise my gantry crane in the garage to fit the width of a Duramax on 12 wides 🤷🏼‍♂️

Got home from work early enough to make a run to the garden and harvested the first batch of green onions to have with supper.

Back yard track is done

Attempted to spread the rest of the dirt yesterday.
If you had dirt left over to spread, the jumps are not big enough.... Just sayin'

Cut the yard saturday and spread lots of dust around. My WolfSnout mask makes it possible to stay out in all that dust.

Picked up a Surface Pro7 today since my wife has confiscated my Pro3 last year. Now I can be back here asking stupid questions and trying to have the first smart ass answer to silly questions.

Oops

posted that in the Silvy/Sierra thread 😂

Picked up said blocks and 6x6 and finished the rock bed. Next I’ll need to tie back any falling cables (though not sure what they are for), and scrub the wall to see if any built up mud splatter over the years can come off..

After seeing the blocks in place I’m on the fence with leaving them alone or adding a couple more....I only really wanted a simple block in front of the fuse panel, and two to get me to the water hookup.

That little upgrade with rocks, blocks, and edging was around $90-100

Brought the twin turbo CTSV to the new house and tucked it in.

Gotta get my 19' retractable awning installed here so I can detail the fleet. You can see it on the floor in the first bay.

Stopped for some E85 on the way. She's a thirsty bitch.

Installed new tie rod ends on my John Deere 4320 compact tractor. Left side popped out with a little upward pressure and 2 lb hammer whacking the knuckle.
The entertainment started on the right side. 3 ft pry bar and lots of hammering. Nope. One pickle fork beat under knuckle and lots of beating. Nope. 2nd pickle fork combined to wedge under if first one was bottoming out. More beating. Nope. Damn. I broke out a couple propane torches and warmed up the knuckle for 20-30 minutes. Beating the pickle forks and knuckle finally got it to pop loose. Not supposed to be that difficult.
Hope fully my tires will stay straight now and not wiggle so much.
I was able to get the tie rod ends from a Spicer supplier, instead of buying from JD dealer and saved a few bucks.

Got home early from work so went to the garden and picked a couple more dozen of green onions, also got to try out the cultivator attachment to the new Echo trimmer I purchased. Attachment works pretty good for what it is, purchased it about a week ago because after making the ridges to plant on, my rows were to close to get the Troy-bilt through. Then went and mowed the yard, also loaded up the gas cans to take to work so I can stop and get some REC fuel at the local bulk plant. The old 01 was ready to go as I haven't drove it out on the road for about a month.
