    Well, every human screws up eventually. Hopefully they'll make it right.

  3. Any gardeners?

    To add: last night we had grilled burgers, with a fresh tomato, corn on the cob, fried okra and fried squash. That one meal was almost worth all this years garden work.
  4. Any gardeners?

    Yesterday I was chatting with the wife about buying tomatoes to can. I hate to do it, hate not to. We'd like the "hedge" against hunger if the covid screws up supplies worse than it did in the spring.
  5. Any gardeners?

    Any progress? We had a bunch of corn come in, we froze 17 ish quarts yesterday. My tomatoes are struggling, seems like the worms get 'em if I turn my back and the wind blew a couple cages over and stunted some of them. And lots of them split open before bulking up good. (My apple tree has the same syndrome.) And random areas of the garden are very unproductive. It was all grass, all got a layer of compost, all got plowed under, all got tilled. But some places didn't grow worth anything.
  6. LSPI - Low speed pre ignition

    The Jasper rep told me about LSPI destroying engines such as the 3.5 ecoboost. His info credited four entities, one being ORNL (which made me very curious). So here's what I found when googlin. https://www.oronite.com/about/news/low-speed-pre-ignition.aspx

    Make that 4 places. Today I saw them in the field across from work. The other night they were THICK in the back yard, and dozens of barn swallows got after them. Barn swallows are agile, but dragonflies are next level quick. They were battling for about 30 minutes. Tino, the next time I see thousands of dragonflies you'll have to bring your gangsta hombres w/their AKs (that's Mexanish for "highpoint" ) to shoot those varmints outta the sky.

    Have you TN people noticed any more dragonflies than normal? I've seen groups of thousands in three different places. I've never before noticed more than a few dozen of them together.

    ^ Nah, they won't even drive it, it's got a boring slushbox.

    At work we're having problems getting parts. Our distribution center is in Nashville Lebanon and they supposedly have sick employees and are using temp help that can't ship the right stuff to the right stores. And suppliers like Gates and Fel Pro are out of stock on common stuff. I think plenty of people are tired or just through with taking extreme precautions. I know I'm still trying to 'social distance' and I'm washing my hands, but I no longer Lysol bomb the interior of a vehicle before getting in it. I just wash afterward.

    ^ Glad to hear folks are well now.

    Have you noticed that Yahoo "news articles" are getting LOTS of conservative comments? Funny how the comment sections are shut down now. Yahoo says: “Our goal is to create a safe and engaging place for users to connect over interests and passions. In order to improve our community experience, we are temporarily suspending article commenting.” I think the snowflakes got their feelings hurt and don't want people to realize that HUGE numbers of people have figured out the lies of the left.

    Man, how is everyone?
