    The gentleman was an old friend of my parents, and all his other friends who he had as executors died before him. Great experience if anything else.

    Tough deal Peter. How did it ever come to pass that you were named as executor? I should be seen as a honor, I think, that some one would choose you for such a job.

    Lookin' good! Planned a funeral this morning, managed to track down a couple bank accounts and retirement savings for the person that had died. Sad really, the person who gave me grief over being the executor didn't show at the funeral home to help plan, despite his insistence that he was a close and dear friend. Also found out some valuable personal belongings (gold) are missing, but I did recover all his important ID and cards. Bank accounts are ok, but the withdrawls the POA claimed where the amounts of $100 a month was really $200 a month, spending cash for the now deceased..... yeah...ok....right..... Bank accounts are now frozen till I get a probate done securing me as the executor.

    Sure. if Stihl keeps an eye on them. It can be a risky move.

    As long as Stihl has an eye on the quality of the product, I don't see a problem. We've been running Stihl saws with Chinese manufactured carburettors for years.

    I guess my most used saw is a home owner type. I have had the stupid thing for 8 years or so. I never drain the fuel. Clean it once in a while. It always works. Its an older MS 250 with the goofy spring loaded starter. My folks like it too, they can start it easily. At the time it was a premium saw, in my opinion. Might have been Stihl's low end model, but I figured it was better than a Poulan or some such thing. Not sure if I would buy a Chinese Stihl.

    Hasn't the switch from MTBE been a positive one?

    You guys are too generous in your accommodations to me. It was a good article. There needs to be a change, thats for sure. I am still encouraged in the small/local idea..........the demand so far has been lackluster up here. I dont even want to get into the grass/grain finished debate......both are swell. I just dont get how people can pass up oppertunities to have a supply of beef that is better tasting, and cheaper. Of course the post holiday season is a tough time to market anything.......you damn city folks with your new years resolutions and all that......but to be able to buy better tasting beef for half the money is a no brainer to me. The consolidation of the feeding/packing capacity to a few states has been a mistake. Question about corn squeezings......ethanol is an oxygenate right? Is there a better product out there to use instead of ethanol?

    The occasional use homeowner segment of the market was just too big to overlook I guess.

    In Germany the wages are very good and cost of living quite a bit less than here. Standard is about the same as here. Most I know that lived in US, Germany and Sweden end up here for other reasons than living costs.

    ABB-Asea Brown Boveri is like Stihl a multi national company .They like Stihl have an an excellent reputation world wide .It would be in their best interests to not let less than good products reach the consumer . There is much more than just labor costs involved when these companies decide to move their operations to less developed countries .Taxes for one thing as well as environmental issues .As far as China goes right after WW2 Japan was noted for making in essence cheap junk.That's changed because for the most part it's good stuff now of days .I imagine China will be the same way eventually. It might be noteworthy to mention in the auto industry labor costs in Japan are not that much different than the USA .Of course it costs more to live in Japan and the standard of living is a little less .Germany is the same way from those I have worked with from Germany .

    Built most of a 6' tall double gate, 12' wide, that encloses my yard. I can lock my GF's husky in the yard, rather than tie him out. Dahlia can have play time outside, with less supervision. $250 in material, and I had the fence boards, milled from a cedar. Since I'm currently renting, it's barely tracked to the carport, and easily breaks down. Just fits the chip truck and f450 beneath it. Trim a few boards top and bottom, and call it good. I think I'm going to use cedar to cover the outside of my F450 wooden box until I build a metal top for the service body. More cedar is allocated to building Dahlia a play house...A project for another week.
