    Installed a hand pump on my well.

    It is called simple pump and my son and I installed it our selves in one day. It is well made and can draw from 300 feet. I still have the electric at 240 ft and the pump fit easily in the 6" casing next to the other pipe. Maybe in a few months I will hook up the optional solar powered motor...

    best beer you ever had

    I am not talking most expensive or quality but the drink that brings a good memory... I have absorbed my share of suds but a memorable time I often think about was when I was out to sea during a West Pac cruise. Two buddies and I got about a case of San Miguel on board and stashed it in my...

    Got excited about a bit of snow

    Haven't had a good snow here in a couple of years so the first dusting this winter got us out. When I first moved here in 89 we got two or three good snows a year. The road department didn't have much more for clearing roads than a couple of paint-scrapers back then and I was one of the few...
