Hey it's been about 10 years since the law has stopped me for a traffic infraction and not less than a block from my house it happened yesterday afternoon LOL. You know the 4 way stop before you make the right on to my street Todd? Well Mr. policeman ticketed me for not coming to a full stop there. It was a good run while it lasted blush

Did you come to a complete stop after you hit the police car laughlaugh ? That really sucks , the points and the fine and surcharge make it a real kick in the butt. The thing to be real careful about is another ticket and its financial consequences. The stop sign violation will get you 3 points. If you are unlucky enough to get another violation resulting in 3 points within 18 months not only do you have to pay that fine and surcharge but you are also liable for a $300 Driver Safety Assessment Fee madmad . By the time you are all done you could of just about bought two shiny new LX5s.

Thats much, much better. Just wanted to let everyone know about that lovely $300 driver safety assesment fee the state has come up with. Not too many people are aware of it, I think it went into effect at the end of 2004. I didn't know anything about it until a friend called me for some advice. For a speeding ticket (a well deserved one at that but even so) it ended up costing him close to $500. Ouch!

Walleye season is right around the corner smile

    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
    • Buy the best door you can afford. I installed a steel clad Peach Tree door on the front of my place mainly because it faces south and there is a big temp difference during the day. I paid 600.00 for it, not much for a door these days but thirty years ago I had the father in law scratching his head when we put it in. My back door is out of the sun and I went with an all glass Morgan door, 300.00 I think it was still looks almost brand new after all of these years. Love the light that it lets it. Both have adjustable thresholds and we keep an eye on the weather-stripping. Stay away from the box store bargain doors unless it is rental property. Another thing is don't go cheap on the lock sets, you get what you pay for. Also reinforce the jam on the lock side while you are replacing the door.
    • Xlake area got about 6" of fluffy stuff, I am told, but I wasn't up this weekend. Looks like Tuesday might add a few more. I might still be able to ride yet
