May you all have a Happy & Prosperous New Year.

Just spent eleven days in St. Petersburg, Florida. During the day the temp was mostly in the 60's and 70's. We are in Minnesota right now (-1 wind chill) and will return to Wisconsin tomorrow (-9 to +10 degrees).

Just this morning. My friend sent me a photo of his truck covered with a light dusting of snow at his Florida address... i told him he should demand a refund!






Eastern cold and the Berry College Eagle laid her first egg about a hour ago. BTW it was on this date last year she laid her first egg also.

Roy... i know you were watching while i was outside.

Today i got in to Academy Sporting Goods.  Finally found a suitable  replacement folding knife.  A Kershaw Oso Sweet model.  https://kershaw.kaiusaltd.com/knives/knife/oso-sweet. I got for 10 bucks less than here.  I always like there knifes but tend to loose them.  This out of the package is razor sharp. Have cut paper to test - opened a bale of hay- cut my thumb- and shaved some hair off my arm. Still razor sharp, the open assist is lighting fast and the blade lock works good as does pocket clip.

Backin business with that issue

Morning all. Coffee is hot, the rest of us, not so much yet. It was 35-40 this morning, when I woke up... and that was inside the cabin. I need to start waking up more often through the night.

Captain, try a large glass or two of ice tea late in the evening.....works for me for a "refill the wood stove" alarm.

Delmonico: I've got the brace to go with those, but most of the bits are nowhere to be found. Use it with modern spade bits for drilling fence posts for hanging gates and other things far from electric.

And the irony there is, I have reached an age, where I take pills to keep me from having to go every 15 minutes.

I was given 3 bits 3/8 - 1/2  at 30" OAL by a Swedish Boat builder ...no brace though  Sad
The bits came in a heavy duty leather scabbard.

I've got a nice collection of bits to go with my dad's brace, even used them some in the past. Love old tools.

Kids were rummaging about in some of my tools, came up with my old corner brace; couldn't figure it out.  I got out one of my regular ones, and some various bits and augers, and we played around with them; they were most amazed at one of my long augers, a 9/16" x 36".  Regaled them with a few stories of building power lines the old fashioned way.

We built a small cabin, using one of those old hand drills to drill holes for the spikes to hold logs together. Also cut 75% of all the notches with a hammer and chisel.

No. It came from Nevada.  Roll Eyes I might put one on it when it gets a bit warmer. I think a battery with more CCA's might help.

'Tis -4 already. Low -15 to -20.  Roll Eyes Why do I live in WI.
My parents are visiting my cousin in NM. It was 63 there at 6 PM.

Heat wave today. 17 degrees here-warmer than the high most of last week. Headed above freezing! Guessers say 36 for a high. Rain tomorrow, and still warmer. Should get rid of the last traces of pre-Christmas sn*w still hanging on here.
