    I bet the early ones come back ahead of time to stake claim to the best nests. I find it entertaining that Mom and the young ones head South and a group stays behind. I can picture them saying go ahead- we will meet you down there- You guys travel way to slow for us.

    I thought so also. I wait for them to come back and watch for them closely. A few come back first and they aren't very obvious if you don't watch for them. They are coming and leaving 2 weeks earlier than they did 15-20 years ago.

    He probably was stoned. On that note I was surprised when I looked up James Garner, for no particular reason, to find out he started smoking pot at a young age and continued through his life.

    I picked up a ring like that at a yard sale for a couple bucks. Probably not quite that big. Nice junkyard.

    Cobleskill replied to a thread Ideas in Announcements!!!
    My son wanted to take welding in high school vocational school. I tried to talk him into a different field and told him I could teach him to weld but not a choice I would make for a career. He said it was what he wanted to do. OK. Found out the good welding jobs are hard to get and the ones you could get suck.

    Alvin Lee and John Mayall are two greats I missed. Johnny Winter as well. Saw Clapton, but he was so drunk he sucked bad. John Sebastion was so drunk he didn't even show up for his show. First was Zep in 72. Second was Floyd. Sadly Floyd show was ruined by seeing a guy who thought he could fly or wanted to end it.

    Maybe check and see if there are any barn renovators in your area. Pick his brain on the take down or possibly ideas to save it. Sometimes it is worth paying just for expert opinions.

    Fred Silverman canceled Petticoat Junction, Green Acres, and the Beverly Hillbillies when they were all still wildly popular. He wanted to get rid of the "rural image' CBS had developed.

    There used to be a lot of people thought we were "dumb farmers." Seems people appreciate farmers more these days.

    Tough racket that farming stuff. It does get in your blood though. I grew 2500 heads of cauliflower this past year. You have to walk through the whole field on a daily basis when it is heading to look for heads opening up starting to show white. You gather the leaves around the head and tie them to keep the sun off-turns them yellow and nasty looking. Then when you harvest them you have to carefully trim the upper leaves off, leaving enough to protect the head during transport. When you get to market you trim most of those leaves off so you can see how nice it is. My bud sarcastically said don't fool around next year, plant 8 or 10 thousand instead of a paltry 2500.

    First one I saw I was a kid and it came flying out of the tree that my Dad was cutting. Last minute thing, the tree was at a 45* angle. My son and I climbed with a bunch of them in the Red Oaks in front of the house a few years back. They were quite tolerant. Cute little buggers.

    Funny, looking at pic of 020 I remembered mine had tape on the handle to hold the plastic on too. Impressive power in that old thing.

    same old, same old. Doesn't seem to matter what topic you talk about. Always lots of misinformation and hard to decipher which is which.
