Little Hands

Last week Andrew and I joined forces and worked on building a fence worthy to contain pigs. It was close to 100 degrees all day long.
Not once did that lil' feller complain about being hot. He opened gates, fetched for tools, and helped me all day long. Thanks to him our little piglets will have a nice home (for a few months).

Smokin' with the rest of them

I finally got the bugs worked out of my Ford 851. I sent the injector pump away to get rebuilt, put a new tire on the front, and had to replace some bearings in the steering box. Rebuilding the steering box was a regular pain. It's runs good now but smokes a bit. I'm not really sure why. It's mostly white smoke. I should probably run some injector cleaner through it, but it does what I need it to do.

My Christmas present to the self proclaimed Reformed Movie Critic

food for thought

In modern society we've been accustomed to all manner of insurance. Dental, medical, life, auto, homeowners, boat, ATV, snowmobile, and probably some other silly insurance that I don't know about. You can't buy a big ticket item without an attempt to be sold some sort of 'factory extended' insurance. That leads me to question the quality of the item purchased at best and just a plain ole fashioned scam at worst.
I'm generally pretty skeptical of insurance. Not that it's intrinsically bad, but I just get the feeling that when push comes to shove, the policy holder will lose. Let's be real, insurance isn't a non-profit industry.
Lately, however I've been a big advocate of insurance, i.e. food insurance. I've been telling some people that it would be a good idea to store up, say, 6 months worth of food. "What for? What's going to happen?" is the typical response. My response is "I don't know, I just think it's a good idea. If you don't need it, you can always eat it."
This is the ultimate insurance. It's really a win-win situation.

advertising...the consumer pays

"Obama is Coca-Cola and McCain is Pepsi - at the end of the day you’re still drinking the same beverage."

The "new direction" our country will be heading into is certainly not, and to quote Obama, 'what out founding fathers' have intended.
I was going to list all the unconstitutional actions our government is involved in, but it was making me sick when I started write them down.

Guess that President

"We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled governments in the civilized world-no longer a government by …a vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."

This past weekend we visited some of our friends in State College.  While there, we worshipped at our old church.  Bear in mind there are some striking differences from this church in PA to our new church in NY.   One of them being that the elders wear vestments.
Not missing a beat, Andrew asked me as soon as the pastor walked up front, "Why [does he have his] clothes off?"
