  1. Thanks. It seems to work now. I don't know why and I guess I can't care. If I try to fool with it I will screw it up for sure. Thanks for the advice.
  2. I got these pictures of a bird on my birdbath today and I can't find it in my book. Any help is appreciated. Thanks for your time. Tom
  3. I have an attached 23 X 33 garage with a spancrete ceiling. I put in a gas furnace about 10 years ago and it has a simple plenum that sits atop the furnace and only puts the heat out in one direction about 4 feet above the ground. The garage stays above freezing without the furnace being on. When I want to warm it up I turn the furnace on and in 2-3 hours it is comfortable. But the heat stratifies and so it a problem. With your 10 foot ceiling you may have a problem. Couple of ceiling fans might help out a lot. But as Delchecci pointed out the contents of the building are a big heat sink and will take a long time to warm up. One think that I was wondering about was whether having the garage warm in the winter would accelerate the rust of my truck due to the salt. I guess I don't really know the answer and maybe that's just the price of this type of setup.

    Clean up

    As you leave the ice today or when you pull your perm please take a few minutes and clean up anything that isn't snow or ice. There's no good reason to leave anything behind and it isn't that time consuming. Maybe you could even walk the perimeter a bit to see if there's trash that others have left. What would be your reaction is someone left all that stuff on your front lawn.
  5. I've done it before. Get the phone set up to sync and then work through it on the truck. This time Momma Ford told me that syncing was no longer available and to go to the Ford website. That didn't help me.
  6. All of a sudden my phone quit syncing in the 2014 F150. I tried to reconnect this afternoon and the truck told me that it doesn't work any more and that I should go to the Ford website. I did that and it was not at all helpful. Folks here seem to be able to cut through the BS. What's the way to get it to work again? Thanks for your time. Tom
  7. Thanks again. Now the issue is how do you tell someone that the ideas she has are wrong. She has never accepted advice from me. Maybe I should have one of you guys contact her. No, actually I wouldn't do that to anyone.
  8. Thanks, that is exactly what is needed. But of course my mom wouldn't let me look at the chairs tonight so that's that.
  9. The legs are fairly long/wide rectangular and so I don't see this type of thing working. What I would really like would be some sort of device that had the shaft but a flat piece of plastic rather than the casters. But I've never seen anything like that.
  10. Mom just got wooden flooring installed in her kitchen. The chairs she has have casters, the ones with the shaft that gets inserted into the sleeve on the bottom of the leg. We'd like to get something was just a flat piece that wouldn't move so easily. Concern is that the 93-year-old will take a tumble if the chairs moves as she sits down.
  11. Nope. It has been going on long enough to avoid that.
  12. We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost. Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another. Any ideas? Thanks for your time. Tom

  14. I took part in a tourney out west last Saturday. At the bar during the pay out I was surprised at the number of young people involved. There seemed to be at least 25% of the crowd that looked under 25 and one table full that clearly were under 21 (no beers). Is this typical? I keep reading about the increased age of hunters so I wonder if the coyote thing is an oddity.
  15. A friend was out today and hooked a couple northern and had a decent muskie on. He was concerned about the hook type and positioning when using large sucker minnows. He is C&R and wants to limit the risk to the fish. Can you share some ideas please. Thanks for your time. Tom
