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?

    • If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.   The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.
    • At least you’re settling for three strikes and you’re out!   Tough start but at least you know now and have a chance to rebound in some way.  Hopefully you can at least get that late season hunt on the “old” property.  Always tough when the permission starts fading after working and and getting to know a good property.
    • Looks like severe heartburn to me!😄
    • As stated for the above reasons....I totally agree.  I can tell you this much, I also hunt late into the season if I am not tagged out, and I loosen my sling more so my thick gloves will slide through it and I can grip my bow.  I have always shot with one, so i can't speak to shooting without one.  I get a piece of mind having it that I can relax my grip and now worry about the bow "jumping" out of my hand,
    • Antsy?  That would be an understatement.  I got out bow hunting 1 time last year due to the job I was working at the time.  That job is history and am now working a job that will allow me to hunt as much as I used to.  Last month has been pretty much a disaster.......the land that we hunt on, first when we went in to kill the areas for the food plot, the guy running the sprayer decided it would be a good idea to put Roundup on the clover plot I put in last year.  It was thick and awesome and I could tell the deer were just hammering it.  Mostly does and fawns, couple small bucks, but hey, when the does need a man, he usually shows up.  Needless to say, I was a little upset when this happened.  Almost lost it when the guy got done spraying the plot and then drove over to me and said "I killed that plot, we should plant a clover or chicory plot there".  Just shook my head and walked away.  Strike one......then about 2 weeks ago the owner of the property informed us that we would no longer be able to bow hunt on his land.  Only muzzleloader, and that's only if they are completely tagged out by then.  STRIKE TWO........so I just planted over 200 dollars worth of seed in food plots that I may never even get to hunt over.  STRIKE THREE!!!!   So now I am in scramble mode to try and find some private land to hunt or start getting out to scout public land in hopes to find a good spot.  All i can do is make the best out of it and hopefully things work out the best.  Either way.....I'm going to up a tree somewhere and totally loving the experience of sitting in the woods with mother nature, with a huge smile on my face!!!!
    • Hey all...........thinking about pulling the trigger on a new bow for the upcoming season (I know a little late in the year, but it is what it is in my world).  Right now I am shooting an Elite GT500 which is a double cam bow.  Thinking about possibly going to a single cam instead of the double but not really sure if that is the route I want to take.  Looking for opinions from folk who shoot either and what they like don't like about the bow.  Not looking for any bow bashing, just what everyone likes and why.  Thanks!
    • I did this with a friend. I actually think it was what is called back bacon not buckboard as he cut it out of the rear loin instead of the shoulder. IMHO it tastes really good. Like a ham of sorts. If it goes over well then I'll do a batch from the shoulder and I think the extra fat content will work better.   I used a bacon mix from Walton's that I ordered. 
    • Was just out to the Cabela's in Rogers and they are clearing out and closing their bargain cave.  I think I have only bought two things in there in all the years they have been open so it's not a real biggy to me.  Thought I would pass it along.
