I did not need the rain at all. I have been waiting for 3 weeks for my corn field to dry out enough to plant corn. It also stopped my deck building (can't run electric saws or cut lumber that is wet) and also stopped my grass cutting, but it did not stop my nap or the load of dirty work clothes in the washer LOL
Welllllll, other than the rain watering my newly planted things, it pushed the fencing job back and totally postponed putting in the concrete culvert that was delivered today. so I understand what your saying. Last year the Amish guy that was working for me had a chisel slip out of his tool belt. Went straight down and sliced the extension cord in half!!! Talk about sparks flying!!! Regular 4th of July !!! Lol

Ahh, if they can grow it on University campuses for selling, it wouldn't be difficult to find if it was legal for all states. Hehehe. There's several pretty kinds I'd like to grow;)

When working on a mower in the blade area, first remove the spark plug wire so the thing won't start and if turning the mower up to look or replace the blade, turn it with the carbuerator side up. If that side is down, oil will run into the carbuerator and create a smoke screen when and if you restart it.
thank you for this good advice. I was just looking at the decency of the people on this thread and saw your tidbit of advice just when i was about to do this for the first time - and quite a bit ignorant of mechanics,so thanks!

I'm a Hoosier!! So hogweed grows in Indiana? Surely then I've seen it. I remember horse weeds, but not hogweed. I looked at hogweed images o line and it seems to be a little familiar. Too long ago

I did that when I cut the cord to our electric hedge trimmer. Good thing it happened so fast or I might have been fried. Yikes. I've always been a bit of a klutz.

Good morning my fine feathered friends. My birds are multiplying. Looks like an Alfred Hitchcock movie around here. I have to feed my outside dogs at night, or the birds eat the kibble faster than they do. I was thinking of AW yesterday, when I saw two young does grazing in the side yard. Beautiful. I also saw a different sight as hubby and I drove home on our little country road. It is not unusual to see vultures and turkey buzzards around here, and you have to be careful so slow down if they are in the road. They don't move quickly and risk becoming road kill along with the lunch they are eating. One BIG bird took a slow lift off and fired away, literally, as he took offense at our disturbing his meal, just missing the windshield.(What goes in the body, ultimately comes out the other end). Bombs Away!!!
