    Robot vacuum cleaners

    I think I messed up my robot vacuum cleaner. I'm on my way to the kitchen for morning coffee, and notice the robot in the middle of the floor with an internet cord sticking out the bottom. So I turn it on to vacuum and it's making a loud, plastic grinding noise. It's got a 1 year warranty, so...

    I think you know I'm no Trump fan. But there's a LOT of gold digging women in this country. The woman that accused Trump of raping her, has also accused others of it. She's gotten rich off it of men. And as far as the tax cheating thing goes, I don't think many would care if he cheated the...

    Most yards are $50 a pop. My ex, she pays $40. The crew comes in, mows, weed eats and edges the drive & curb in about 10 to 15 minutes. And they're gone. If she were to buy even a cheap mower from WM, it would be over $1000. She can get her yard mowed many many times for that.

    Tiny wire connectors.

    Retail got smart. Suppliers/sellers shipping from warehouse to people. In stead of warehousing, then shipping to a brick and mortar store. Then that store having to warehouse a lot of stuff they're hardly going to sell. If you're in the business of selling stuff, this is the most economical...

    Tiny wire connectors.

    I used to do that. But never ran across anything smaller than the normal 1/4 connectors. So I didn't even check those guys.

    Tiny wire connectors.

    I'm having a lot of problems finding some tiny 90 degree wire connectors, in a hurry. No one in towns has these. So I'm gonna have to order them online. First off, I'm not sure how to measure them. I think they're .11" or 2.9mm Something like this would work great. It's going to be...

    Well, everything is connected, updated and working. I'm a little curious as to the 40 to 45mbps i'm getting on my PC. But everything else is up around 100mbps.

    Brisket for burgers, instead of ground beef

    I went to Super 1 earlier today (they always have good sales).. I talked to the butcher and he said he's grind it all up for me, at no charge. Holy moly. When their briskets go on sale, I'm gonna stock up. They're $3.49lb right now.

    Brisket for burgers, instead of ground beef

    Brisket is cheaper than hamburger meat. Plus it's got it's own fat to mix with it. I bought a mixer than as a grinder attachment. As far as taste goes, some parts do taste different. I tried cooking a sirloin like a roast once, and tried a roast on a grill once. The steak didn't taste like...

    Brisket for burgers, instead of ground beef

    So I was at the store the other day. Me and this other guy got to chatting (waiting on the butcher). And told me that if you have a meat grinder, it's cheaper and better to ground brisket into hamburger meat, than to buy the hamburger meat already prepared. You know, like in those logs. I...

    They certainly knew how to cut the lawn in style in the 50s. Comfort Lawn Mowers. The “Power Mower of the Future” is shown demonstrated on Oct. 14, 1957.

    Does anyone have Starlink?

    I'm already excited. I just ordered this 2 days ago and figured it would take a couple of weeks to get here. So I sort of took my time ordering the pipe adapter mount from Amazon. From what I understand, the Starlink mounts aren't good at all. Anyhow, I got an email yesterday saying the dish...

    Does anyone have Starlink?

    If they'd have connected the fiber coming from town and the one from the other county (just down the road), I'd have stayed with them. When I first moved here, 2.5 years ago, they said they were bringing fiber down this road. They got a huge government grant to pay for it, and construction...

    If you don't mind me asking, how much was you paying for Dish? $28? That's higher than anything I'm paying for a premium channel. Maybe its worth it though, I'll check it out.

    A buddy of mine had HughesNet. He was always complaining about buffering & prices. I've heard that Dish or Direct were connected with HughesNet in some way.

    People still on Dish or Direct TV are getting ripped off. I'm paying less for all the premium ROKU channels I have, than Dish's lowest subscription price. Which doesn't have any premium, commercial free channels. Their top 200 is over $100 per month now. Plus you have the equipment rental...

    That's amazing. What's your customer service attempts been like? With my phone company, I can call them with a problem and it's usually resolved that day or the next. Unless it's a weekend. Or if I'm complaining to them about paying for 15mbps and only getting 3.

    John Deere Laying Off Workers in Midwest US, Opening Plant in Mexico

    John Deere Laying Off Workers in Midwest US, Opening Plant in Mexico

    I like the looks of the new Stihl ZTR's. As far as JD goes, I don't really blame them. The #1 reason to go into business, or keep a business going, is profit. Down in Mexico, they can pay people $20 to $30 per day. And that's not a bad wage for them. Here, they're having to pay that much...

    I've never had a mower steering wheel that was that hard to turn, unless the gear or something was bad. IMO, this would be something I'd try only if I was having to make repairs on down there. Like replacing drag links. I bet any of us could come up with some sort rubber dust cover for this...

    Engine swap pulley problem

    This works pretty good. I do have a weird new noise coming from underneath. It sounds like someone is fumbling around in a plastic bucket. And the clutch/brake wiggles sometimes. But, the mower is faster and the belt stays on.
