What kind of vehicle do you drive and how many miles per year?   How many kwHr per month do you consume?  How many square feet is your house?  Do you travel for vacations?   How far?

Since you asked, between the two of us we drive less than 20k annually mostly for work. Keep our thermostat turned as low as it goes in the winter about 56 degrees, we use a small pellet stove in our tv room in the evening and it doesn't take much energy to wear a sweater. We run the air rarely. Usually one trip up to northern MN annually. Yes, we try to consider the future for our children, how about you? How many miles a year, temp of your dwelling in the winter?

Water is free? Hardly. 

Nothing is free.

 

But your water analogy is similar to my chicken nugget analogy. Times change and someday we (or at least our kids) will be eating lab grown meat and a few generations from now, people will wonder how we ever got along doing it "the old fashioned way".

Show me a picture of a drinking fountain from back then that had a coin slot.😁

Or you live in Flint Michigan.

I'm in Lansing Michigan right now. Not sure but it seems the water is ok here.

We maybe drive 15k between the two of us.  We do keep the house warmer thanks to fracking but we don't have any auxiliary stoves.    Looks like you are doing your part.

I try to consider the future of our children by not voting for Democrats or similar politicians who will keep raising taxes and adding national debt. How about you?

Is that better than adding to the debt while lowering taxes? 

 

Man, think of all the pug barns in Minnesota we would lose if this takes off.

 

Actually, pig barns are the single biggest consumer of water in rural areas.

 

The growers hope this never comes to the surface but every time it quits raining (no problem currently lol) and cities tell their residents to stop watering their grass, nobody talks about the vast amount of water used in the pig barns,ethanol plants and crop irrigation. 

 

I would rather get my steaks on the hoof so to speak.

Kind of off topic but which politicians don't raise our debt? And, unless you are among the top of the top in income you really aren't seeing a substantial tax cut. Just more smoke and mirrors.

Maybe, We have some of that disease in the family. I'm of the opinion that if you are diabetic the kind of beer you should drink is NO BEER.

That's YOUR opinion.

Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat?

    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.

    • Hmmm.  My cheapest camera is a Wildgame Innovations unit but I haven’t been a great fan of it.  It’s not the NANO version but though, just a cheap one I picked up in a small shop during a hunt cuz I felt I NEEDED one right then.   I do like my old Moultrie and am looking at the M50i as a much updated version of it.   Still comparing their line up.  If I just bought now, that’s what I’d go with.   That WGI 360 sounds like something I have to check out!
    • I have been a Wild Game Innovations fan for most of my time using cams.  I really really like the NANO version they put out.  Compact, only take 4 AA batteries, great battery life and the pictures have been very good quality.  That being said, last year I won a Moultrie Game Spy 2 at a company party and have been very impressed with it.  Same as the Nano, takes only 4 batteries and pictures are very good as well.  These two cameras are now my "go to" and I won't be needing to spend  100's on other cameras when these work great.  The one camera that I am thinking about getting though is the WGI 360 degree camera.  Supposed to be able to take pictures 360 degrees so you don't miss anything moving behind where a normal camera can't detect them.
