The FX Matt brewery new bottle plant went up in smoke on Saranac Thursday. Called Todd when I drove through on my way to Ilion, from rt 12 you could see the flames as high as 8' off the roof and smoke from Rome, they will rebuild that area. 1500 pepople were there for the opener of Saranac Thursday and no one thankfully got hurt just a couple of the fire fighters had smoke inhalation..

When I was coming home from Ilion at 10:45 the fire was contained but the smoke was still billowing good, feel sorry for the residents around there the smell was awful.

Otis...what HOT bite...you'll never take Todd and I alive wink

Like Todd said...we have been doing a lot of homework with some nice rewards mixed in. Todd is right about the quality of fish...I have boated some truly beautiful fish lately and some nice photos floating around somewhere whistle

Otis, give me a call if you want to get the girls out and do some fishing. Little Lily has become quite prolific with her new ultralight combo. She got a massive male 'Gill the other day that was a little over 11". She was in a fish fighting stance like she had a Marlin on...truly a joyous moment for me to watch her use all the little tricks I have taught her. I may have found my Trap Attack partner for next year laugh

Are you free on weekends now that school is out? Maybe we can plan something for next weekend. Pick a day and let me know. The evening bight has been more productive for me, but I’ll go whenever. How old is Lily? Sounds like she’s following in her dad’s footsteps! Ellie’s seven. She’ll bring all kinds of toys and stuff to keep them busy in case the bite slows down. Todd you in?

    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
    • I'm starting to wonder about my wife, she bought me a suit lined with lead. Now she's trying to convince me it's for the xrays in the sun.?.
    • Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal.  #0148433  #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long.  I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each.  Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack.  I installed with an impact driver.  Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation.  For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.
