Happy Holidays!

20 posts in this topic

I know it's early but I haven't had much time to get online the last couple of days helping a friend redo her bedroom for her and her husband, so I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays early. Everyone drive safe, eat too much (New Year's resolutions are coming cry) and may your Holidays be bright and merry! smile Happy Holidays from me and the kitty. smilegrin

So are you and Mrs. Sandmandd going to spoil the newest??

Did you get her a new fishing rod for Christmas?

I hope your new family has a Merry Christmas.

Thank you Tom. Yea, I would say I spoiled her. Everyone tells us not to, but I love the holidays and I love the kids eyes lighting up. My brother called last night and said he got her an iPod with accessories, so it's not just me spoiling her. I got her some Wii games and some other stuff. What can I say, I think the kid deserves an awesome Christmas. I know it's not about presents, but there is a lot of stuff she doesn't have that kids her age do. She basically came with clothes and that was it.

Despite waking up to a dead battery in my Escape this morning I had a wonderful day with my sister, brother-in-law and niece down in Mora today.

    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC.
