27° here in Upstate NY this morning, under clear to cloudy skies. The high temperature is to get up to about 35° today. We are supposed to get rain tonight and tomorrow with a high temperature in the 50's.

Yesterday I was on the road for a good bit of the day and today will be another busy day it looks. I am feeling a lot better than I was and that is a good thing.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Morning from Teas, 53 now, high of 61. Big rain and thunderstorms last night. I enjoyed sleeping in the rain, cats didn't like the thunder at all.
Now I have a wet spot in the carpet from a roof leak somewhere. That will be the morning project. This afternoon we have the last fur tickets available to see "They Shall Never Grow Old". For those who don't know, it's original movie footage from WWI, remastered and colorized. It is not recommended for the snowflake generation or young kids.

Hope everyone has a Blessed day,
Ken

morning all. 23 out here, 35 for a high today. Computer weather (NOAA) still calling for snow, sure miss our 70% chance yesterday, nothing!!!
Maybe a few flakes today but I'm not holding my breath yet.
Trip to town went as planned, got rid of a pint of blood then went looking for a bolt for the yellow loader. Ended up having to buy five because they don't sell singles. Oh well, guess I've got spares.
Got a new scope in the mail yesterday, ordered it on Christmas eve and was in my mailbox yesterday. JoeBob Outfitters! Great service!!!:D
Should get another scope today, then I'll pick the one with the finest crosshair and put it on the creedmoor, hope to help the size of my groups. :rolleyes: But maybe it's just me.
Better move 'em out. Have a great day and remember those in need of prayer.
GOD BLESS. Dean

good morning folks. It is 28º here this morning with a skiff of ice on the ponds on the way to work. Little colder in the low spots I suppose. Took the afternoon off, cleaned the chimney and cap and a buddy came over to inspect things for the possible CO leak. He said everything looks good and there is no reason to think we had a problem. For peace of mind, I'll replace the door gaskets, but I don't think that was an issue.

After that, I had some time to kill, so Tyler and I sighted in his 6.5 CM with the new Vortex Viper PST. It has the new Zero Stop feature, of which I've read is a real PITA to zero. Nope..only took 3 shots, including bore sighting. I really like the scope, but the MOA reticle is a little "busy". We also shot his HK VP9 we got him last Christmas. Nice, accurate gun. Trigger is extremely light for a pistol and near zero reset. I'm no pistol guy but I like it! I still had some time so I took the muzzleloader for a walk at a nearby farm. Saw 5 deer on the neighbor's, but none where I could get after them. Nice to get out.

Back to work this morning. Running a bit late today. Just moving slow. I better get my coffee in me and get moving. Have a good one!

Charlie

Morning gang, 40 heading to 57 here in KY today, rain likely. Have to take my mom to a doc appointment today, charge the battery on the tractor, maybe get some hay out for the cows. Got to run, or rather teater off on crutches, you all have a good day, remember those in need of prayers, Buff out!

Good morning, GoGo. It's a warm, warm 46 degrees in Louisville. You can probably guess that the warm temps mean the rain and southerly winds have arrived here, and you'd be right. It's supposed to bump on up to 58, with light rain.

I'm working from home today, but start out downtown with a monthly food distribution charity project. About 10-12 of us from Humana meet at a parking lot, set up tables, unload a big panel truck and then pass out canned goods and other packaged goods to those in need. The charity is called Dare to Care and I think it has expanded into a lot of other communities. The rain will make things a little messy, so I hope it stays light.

Over the past couple of weeks I've gotten my garage dug out enough to work on one of my knife projects a little. I'm putting some birdseye maple scales on a fixed-blade skinner. I've made a few small mistakes on this one, but I think it'll turn out OK.

I have a Ken Farrell one-piece scope base for a Savage and a set of 30mm Burris Signature Zee Rings for sale here on the Accurate Shooter board. You can ping me here if you don't want to register over there. These parts are as new, only used the rings about six months. I needed to save some weight and replaced these parts with aluminum ones.

Y'all have a great day and be safe out there.

Morning

Good morning all. It's raining and 42 in Indy. It's only gonna' rain all day, though. We'd like this a lot more if it was March. Got domestic duties today. The only question is if it will be before or after the nap. Thursday! Margarita night!

Have a good day.

Great morning folks,

Cloudy, sorta foggy and 34° & going a bit higher here near Halfway USA. Rain is likely too as a bit blob of moisture is moving into the region from the Gulfo de Mehico.

No tin got knocked yesterday. I spent a couple hours making a "small" change to some electrical stuff that was in the way. :rolleyes: I stopped asking "why the hell did they (previous owner) do that?" Hopefully the cobblefication will go smoother from here on out. The new blower is significantly quieter than what is attached directly to the stove.

With regard to the stock market, investing, retirement worries posted recently... If I told you today you can purchase investments at a 25% discount from just a couple months ago would you take advantage of the bargain?

Debra Dearest looks at our statements each time they arrive in the mail. Some times she's all smiles, some times she spontaneously gives live birth to a litter of kittens. :D The stock markets were way over due for a correction. This is what we are seeing right now. The good news is if you have dividends reinvesting each quarter, you will be buying at a discount price. Buying more shares at a lower price now and those will in turn buy more shares in the future.

Watching the markets day to day will give you heart burn. Glancing day to day is better. Watching the markets quarter by quarter smooths over the wild swings.

Charlie, You might be getting a back draft if the wind is out of a non normal direction. A little more chimney can help that.

Doug, Why do you have airplanes falling out of the sky over there?

Scott, I never met another electro cobblers wiring that I liked. They must have missed that class on theory. Especially when it is buried in a wall.
