I’m disappointed. Here it is Sunday afternoon and the New Madrid still hasn’t started shakin. Guess I’ll have to rake up those pesky leaves after all. We should have been underwater by now.Statistics: Posted by oldasrocks — Sun Nov 19, 2017 3:11 pm

I don’t agree with "Losing it". It’s like riding a bicycle. Course I soon may have Altimeters so things may change at my age.Statistics: Posted by oldasrocks — Wed Nov 15, 2017 6:39 pm

More important than weapons is training in all areas from nutrition, to medical, to eatable plants, AT 15 you should be able to absorb a lot of information. Don’t worry about being G I Joe until you can survive. I know it’s more fun to play with a …

Sorry old news. Been doing this for years. Simply bring up the warmer water from the bottom the way any de-icer works. Pump is one way rotating prop powered by electric or wind is another. Used to sell pond de-icers back in the 70’s that worked on …

General Homesteading Topics • Re: Fence to Keep Out Critters

No fence is going to keep out Squirrels, birds, mice, rats or snakes or moles and chipmunks which dig under. Much less Asian beetles which do more damage than animals.
I’m studying the cost of a hoop house covered with 1/8″ holed hail screen to keep out the beetles. The ate everything this year.

Physical Fitness • Re: Obesity epidemic at new high

Is anyone actually surprised?

We pay people to sit on their butts and eat potato chips. Marketing of comfort foods at all time high. Children are not allowed to go outside and play. Parents have actually been arrested for letting kids play in the back yard unsupervised. People live in their phones. Texting will become the new Olympic sport.

AND I’m sitting here instead of being out cleaning up the garden this am. Just thinking of manual labor makes me want to take a nice long nap.
