"Ribs 1"

7 posts in this topic

I figured I'd beat the snowstorm and head down to the "bog" and do some "alterations" to ribs1......added a "feeder" to the station(holds about 12 pounds or so of black oil seed)...no sooner did I attach it and the chickadees already were using it!...amazing!.....threw a chunk(pretty good sized chunk grin) of venison on the feeder roof.....now,were ready for some action!.....hopefully! grin....

the sun was actually trying to peak over the horizon early this morning....

Ha.... 12 pounds of black oil seed and 30 pounds of venison.

Great feeder station. I sure wish I could get up there and get some shots of the birds you all see.

Holy moly that thing has to be huge. I drove by there last night and it looked like the deer had been digging in the snow near the road for seeds. I thought maybe you put some seeds on the ground since they had dug out a decent sized hole. I think the feeder I put out holds 5 pounds and that has lasted a week, yours might go all winter. I bet you will have grosebeaks and redpolls in no time!

Lol!....venison was donated from the guys at work from a few weeks ago....kinda glad they didn't strip every morsel of meat off the carcass' grin.....Jay,the feeder really isn't that big...maybe 30" by 24"...threw it together this morning about 6:00.....I did see the "holes" in the snow also....the chickadees and squirrels found some seed I threw out a month ago and are the culprits that did the digging...One lone red squirrel was feeding on the station a few minutes after I finished hanging it....no doubt a deer or 2 pawed(hoofed) around also....Hopefully the birds will be using it(besides chickadees) shortly......

    • The Warriors have an incredible situation. Incredibly talented players without the ego that typically comes with it. Most guys want to make the most money or be "The Man", these guys don't seem to care, they just want to win.

      I saw a quote from I think it was Klay Thompson, someone asked if he thought about ever leaving leaving to be "The Man" on another team.  He said something to the effect that it would be cool to be "The Man" and for it to be his team but winning is just too much fun.  
    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.
