Has anyone looked at the poll

Recommended Posts

on ESPN.com this morning? The question is would you rather have Brett Favre as your starting QB this season or would you rather have your current #1? Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Iowa are all voting in favor of having Favre.

I dont get it. We might not make it to the Super Bowl this year with Tavaris, but why do we think that Brett Favre is our automatic ticket to the show? I just cannot wrap my mind around the concept of Vikings fans wanting Brett Favre on their team and cheering for him.

I know that there is no chance in [PoorWordUsage] that the Vikes will acquire him, but I am not especially proud of my fellow Vikings fans at this point.

I wonder what it would be like to have the future governor of Wisconsin as the Vikings Q.B.? I wonder if that would have any impact on his run for governacy?

I don't like it. If you win the SB with him, then you never hear the end from the cheese heads. He's Decent, but work with T-Jack and get him to be a good QB and if not, then you better look elsewhere after this year.

Thinking about it a little bit, the question is kind of vague. There could be a quite a few Packer fans in Minnesota and the other states as well, but I still think there are a lot of Minnesota fans that want Favre to start for the Vikings and that is what sickens me.

I would take him!

As far as the cheeseheads loving it...they certainly would not...even if they say they will.

I would take him just to rub it in their faces, whether he wins or loses.

T- Jack is the main man in the coach;s eye, I think Childress will either sink or swim with T-Jack, Oh Well prolly his last year anyway.

PLANS TO RETIRE FAVRE’S JERSEY ON HOLD

Posted by Mike Florio on July 24, 2008, 2:13 p.m.

Packers president Mark Murphy announced moments ago at a press conference held in conjunction with the team’s annual shareholders meeting that plans to retire Brett Favre’s jersey are now on hold.

Earlier this year, the team had announced that Favre’s No. 4 would be retired on the first game of the regular season, on the evening of September 8 against the Vikings.

This development could mean several things. Maybe the Packers now think Favre will be playing for them on September 8. Or maybe he’ll be playing elsewhere, and they now want to wait for him to finish his career. Or maybe he’ll be wearing a white-and-purple jersey during said September 8 game.

Or maybe the Packers are just [PoorWordUsage] off at him for creating such a mess and they’re going to wait a few years before setting aside his number. It’s not like they’re going to issue it to someone else in the interim.

One good thing to come of all this grin , its almost worth loosing a draft pick wink

I am assuming this is your speculation, because I havent seen anything to confirm this!

I'm against it! So lets take a pole on who wants Farve.

For those that want Favre T Jack is not that bad give him a chance we got rid of one reciever that couldnt hold the ball. We may have a defense that can back him up.

T-Jack has my vote.

Although I hope he develops (ugh, I'm tired of hearing that word) into a serviceable QB for us, he may not be the answer for this team. If that's the case then we'll move on to someone else.

I do not want all of the HASSLES and DISTRACTIONS that would come along with Favre. I also don't want to have to listen to every announcer oohing and gooing non-stop about Favre while I'm trying to watch my team this year.

Finally, I don't want to feel this knot in the pit of my stomach all year long from watching Favre wear purple. Your second cousin may be smokin hot, but you know darn well that it just ain't right for you to be looking at her that way.

I dont want Farve here in MN.. The way I see it, he is only good for this upcoming season only.. After that, he probably will retire... I dont see Vikings getting a superbowl ring with Farve anyways. Thus, I would rather have Vikigns train a younger qb to be our qb of the future then have Farve.

Do you think we could get Osama Bin Laden to come over to our team too?? Maybe we would have a better chance at winning the war!

Brent the player would be a good addition for a year or two and then maybe a good backup for another year or so. Brent the sideshow (Madden, ESPN, Packer fans, yada yada) would be a disaster for the Vikes. Unfortunately the sideshow comes with the player - I would pass on Brent Favre

Why do so many people move from WI to MN? Well, have you been to WI??

Now even their idol wants to come to MN!!

Yes, I would take him as a QB. Is he our answer? No. But T-Jack is not ready yet....

As a Vikings fan I think you would have to put me on suicide watch if he ever played for us.

    • Next up was installing the floor. We went with 3/4” marine grade plywood. I also coated both sides and all edges with a water sealer just to be sure.    After installing the plywood floor we put the furring strips in and ran the wiring.    Each wire goes back the front wall where I made a little panel. The front wall has an opening for a 55” TV that sits flush in the wall. The little squares above and below the tv opening are for in wall speakers.  This is half of the wires the other side of the panel has the other half.  This is all the positive wires coming through the front wall and behind the panel. I forgot to take a picture of the back of the panel after I cleaned it up and put the negative wires through.  Here is a picture of the front of the panel while I was booking everything up. All the positive wires on the left and negative on the right. My wiring is a lot different than most shacks. I’ve never made a panel like this before so I didn’t really know what to order. The terminals that the wires go into are called din rail terminal blocks the snap onto a little piece of aluminum called a din rail.  Later I found stackable ones that would have saved space but I like how it turned out. Each terminal block has a slot in it where you can put a jumper. So everything that was going to be on one switch would be jumpered together. Things on a different switch would be jumpered and so on. The terminal blocks have a hole on the top where one wire comes in and gets screwed down to hold it and there is the same on the bottom. So once the terminal blocks are jumpered to things you want on the same switch you only need one wire out the bottom. Things that were ran off of the switch went out the bottom and over to the relay board. You do the same for each thing you want to run off a different switch just run a wire to a different relay. The long green rectangle thing on the right is a relay board. Our house has 12 light switches not all of them are used yet but they can be so I bought a relay board with 12 spdt relays. The green square on the left is an arduino which is basically like a mini computer chip that you can program. I’ll explain more once I get to what our switches look like. The bottom right of the panel is for the trailer lights and brakes and all the stuff that hooks up to the truck.  I eventually replaced these normal terminal blocks with the din rail style.  Here is the wiring panel all finished up.  The reason for using all the relays and arduino was so I could use this light switch and eventually be able to control everything from a smart phone. In the fish house we have 2 of these switches which each have 6 buttons on them. Each switch has a set of cat 5 cable running to it. One set is connected to the atduino board and sends a signal saying the button was pressed.  The other cat 5 wire is to send a signal to turn on and off a little light next to the button when it is pressed   Here is the back of the switch. So basically how it works is the arduino has pins on it that can send or receive signals it also has pins that can send 5 vdc or 3vdc. So one wire from the arduinos 5 v pin hooks up to the back of the switch where it says sc (switch common 5v coming in). A different wire connects a different arduino 5 v pin to the terminal that says pc (pilot common which is just the little lights next to the buttons). So when a button is pressed a brief 5 v signal is sent from the arduino to the switch which goes through board on the switch and to the wire terminal that is for that button the signal is then sent back to a digital pin (receiving pin) of the arduino on a digital pin. The arduino has to be programmed to receive different signals on the pins you want. Once the arduino sees that a button was pressed it sends a signal over to the relay board saying a button was pressed close the relay that corresponds to that button. When the relay closes it allows the 12v to go to whatever you want to turn on. The nice thing about how this system works is everything can be changed in a matter of minutes. Say I wanted to have the ceiling lights be on button 4 instead of 1 you just have to change a couple of numbers in the code and plug the arduino into your computer and upload the updated code. I’m sure I lost most people right away and I’m not sure if anyone else would even want to do something similar but If so you can message me and I can try and explain it better. Before this I’ve never done anything like this so I had to learn all of this online and how to write little bits of code and do all that which was fun but also frustrating at times since I didn’t have anyone to go to with my questions.  Not sure If this video will work or not.  4B8EE058-806B-4BF6-8DD8-8FC76BE46BD0.MOV  
    • What is this?
    • Everything is going strong now. Been making salsa for the last week or so, have been doing abt's with the jalapenos,  thinking on letting them go red to spread it out a bit. The early girls are kicking em out but the big boys have a bit. Canned two jars of pickles with more coming down the pipe, but I'm gonna hafta start grilling some zucchini,  can only make so much bread.    Bell peppers seem to be running a little on the small side, starting to change colors but was hoping for some better sized ones for stuffing. Snap peas did good out of the gate but are trailing off already,  ya gotta love this time of year!!
    • juicy or freeze dried?
    • Most of the state has been experiencing sunny, warm, and beautiful summer days. The forecast predicts some rain over the next day or two, but otherwise it looks like warm temperatures and clear days and nights. Canoers at Mays Ledges at the Brule River State Forest.These mild and sunny days have been great for canoeing and kayaking and many river water levels are moderate and perfect for paddling. The lower Wisconsin Rivers is running just about normal for this time of year, with many sandbars popping up.Much of the state has been hovering at moderate fire danger this week, which means, in the right place, wildfires can happen. Nearly 60 wildfires have occurred across the state in July, mostly caused by fireworks or sparks from equipment. .
    • Looks to me like a great fishing cart...mount some pole holders on the sides and a cup holder for your beverage and life is good!!🎣
    • i still have some from 2016, most from last year yet but i like to stay ahead. how do they say it........i like to let them MELD!!!!!!!!!😁 that was a 1/2 bushel, smaller batches makes it not so over whelming. especially on a work nite. 
    • Nothing better then homemade pickles. We did 84 quarts last year but the kids didn't eat all of them so we are going to skip a year.
