RE: Scaly Ears

Ears are better. I have been applying a triple antibiotic on their ears and with the exception of slightly rough and crusty along the very edges there has been much improvement in 3-4 days I have been using it. Will continue to post updates. Although it may not be an infection the use of an ointment that remains on the ear may be helping to keep it moisturized as Doug stated.

Scaly Ears

Two Dachshunds. When they had their last check up we mentioned they seem to be loosing hair. One is black and the other Isabella. No itching, scratching, ear slapping, nibbling or other indications of something wrong. Nothing that appears to be dandruff or dry skin. Vet stepped out of office and when he came back in he said it sounded like pattern baldness. Neither have any hair on their belly but their chests do. There is no complete loss of hair. Just an over all thinning on the sides. Hair is very fine whereas our previous Red Dachshund had coarse hair. They will be 3 in August and both female and sisters. More noticeable on the black because her skin is almost white and the Isabella slightly tan. Nothing in their diet has changed. Occasionally they seem to be tired of their food so wife will mix a few drops of olive oil on their food. They have developed scales on the outside of the ears. The opposite side is clear and smooth. Slightly yellow. Scales are soft but slightly crusty in the folds and lift on the edges. Ears are clean and they have never had fleas nor is mosquitoes a problem. The vet gave us Gentaved. We sprayed and rubbed in twice a day and that seemed to help for a while. Scales came back and now it does nothing. I stopped using because it smells like alcohol although it is not listed in the ingredients and I feel that alcohol would be drying out the skin. Bedding is kept clean and washed with All which is dye and perfume free. Any ideas? As I said, other than visible to us there is nothing about the symptoms that bother them. They will be going in to get their nails clipped so the vet will see them then.

Charlie D. , Left Zachary in ‘85, relocated in Wyoming. Miss family, food, the swamps, and still a Tiger fan......but couldn’ return to live! Know the feeling. Seafood from that area is the best in the world. Wherever you eat in B.R. is good. Miss the Muffalettas.

RE: Michigan #1 College Football Team 2018!

In the LSU system.....quarterbacks always seem to be the weak link. Growing up 20 miles from “Death Valley”, I’d love to see LSU do well. Would love to see them take down the “Tide” at least once in a while! Geaux Tigers I agree and the current players have not shown much in practices so far. Interesting note: SI reports that Ohio State permission to contact letter said that Burrow would only be allowed to be contacted by Cincinnati and LSU. If so, I would assume LSU would be his preference. BUT Orgeron would have to change his current philosphy on heavy doses of the run. LSU does not have the depth of rnnning back as they have in the pass and new Offensive Coordinator Steve Ensminger offers a more pass friendly game plan. Bags-look here: 4-star Michigan tackle Anthony Bradford the No. 28 tackle in the Class of 2019 and is the fourth offensive lineman to commit to LSU out of 10 overall players. Remains to be seen if LSU can hold that commitment. I moved to Gonzales in 1980 with a job transfer to a new plant in Convent. Moved back to my home town in 2010.

RE: Michigan #1 College Football Team 2018!

I am hoping that your "Mr. Football" lands in Baton Rouge because I have no faitgh that they will have a decent QB on the roster. Danny Etling was drafted by New England As a pocket passer he may do well there. LSU could never make good use of his talents-or any other QB in recent memory. I think that position will be ANOTHER weak link. Off topic-did you see where the former WWII pilot at age 96 graduated from your Alma Mater? A Navy officer in the ROTC there researched that he had enough credits to graduate. Kudo's to Toledo. Speaks well of it to honor him.

RE: Michigan #1 College Football Team 2018!

Tom, I am really struggling with how I feel about Dallas' future and Dak. Could be a sophomore slump but Bryant's skills and performance has dropped for several years. Along with being a problem on the sidelines he had issues in the locker room so I believe it benefited Dallas to cut him. I have felt that Witten has been a valuable asset to Dallas but it drives me crazy to see him and other receivers run 5 yard routes and be short of a first down when they are caught. That is a coaching problem. Prescott certainly has room to improve ion his performance but he also needs receivers who will fight for the ball, do a better job of being open and reduce drops. They picked up a couple of receivers during the off season and hopefully that will help. Zeke Elliott and his 4 game suspension early on also hurt them. I believe the league treated him unfairly but it is what it is and he should never have put himself in that and several other positions. Great teams overcome those things. I constantly hear the announcers say "Dallas has arguably the best offensive line in football." Good yes but not the best. If they were Romo would not have been beaten up so bad during his career.:) I saw several games last year where the offensive line was overwhelmed repeatedly. May have been Philadelphia (?) where Prescott was sacked 7 times. Part of that was on him and he needs to get the ball out quicker or escape a little better. Not sure he is making his reads correctly or quickly enough at times. I do think he has the skills to be better than average but the coaching staff needs to do a better job of coaching, game planning and making adjustments. Players need to be a little more physical. If they do those things that would help the defense who spent too much time on the field. This may well be Garrett's last season to prove he has what it takes. Not sure they would do better with a coaching change as I believe many of the new coaches this season were good because of the system they were in rather than coaching abilities but time will tell. Leaves a bad taste in my mouth to say this but look at what New England did with a back up QB when Brady was suspended. Look's like Bryant shot himself in the foot recently by turning the Raven's down. I heard first year was around $7 million but he wanted a 1 year contract. One year contracts at those figures hurts a team salary cap.

RE: Very Disappointed with New Keystone Alpine

Really do you think they are going to fix everything under the warrantee befor you even purchase it .you might get them to agree to fix certain things befor you accept delivery.but that will be after you buy it. I would expect that all issues be repaired BEFORE buying. Why would a buyer want to make repeated trips, at his expense, back to a dealer to make repairs AFTER purchase? We hear lot's of complaints about dealers on this forum and how long it takes to get any repairs made after purchase. The OP posted what the factory said about the issues. He is now left alone to deal with them and repairs before purchase would have satisfied him. Refusing to buy before repairs would have lit a fire under the dealer.

RE: Michigan #1 College Football Team 2018!

Patterson wanted out of Ole Miss because of sanctions placed on them and the head coach resigning. Big mess there and it started with Houston Nutt's lawsuit after he was fired. He had a grudge againist Ole Miss and anyone associated with them. Initially Patterson's Dad was supportive of Freeze but once the sanctions hit and some of the players left,IMO, his Dad did not feel that he would have the chance to show his skills. Barring injury, he will have 2 years to prep for the pro's. As far as his career at Michigan we will have to see if the fool Harbaugh can groom him into the QB that many think he is. Dak Prescott-His mother grew up not far from here and a neighbor went to school with her. Her pregnancy was a difficult thing for most of the locals but she overcame that and raised 3 fine sons. My hope is that Prescott has a good year and the Cowboy staff develops his strengths and helps him overcome his weaknesses. Another year like last year, and it was not all his fault but he didn't impress me, and the Dallas fans will be calling for his head.He has 2 years on his contract so that gives him time to be what they think he is. Contract extensions are common but I would take a HARD look this year and give some serious thought before I would extend that contract going into 2019. Of course, the team has to be better and hopefully he stays healthy.

RE: Michigan #1 College Football Team 2018!

Good players without good coaching produces average teams. Note-LSU!! I predict Harbaugh will stumble again and not have the season you think he will. I do enjoy his whining on the sidelines. That is my prediction and I hope it is better than yours. Can't stand the guy. :B

RE: Need Tire Recommendation; Disappointed in Firestone H/T

I see comments and some pictures of tires getting good mileage. Looking at some of the profiles of posters I see many are running 1/2 tons. Some are bumper pulls or light 5ers. I see many on this and other forums saying they don't get the same mileage as the 1/2 tons. I am one of those who get poor mileage and doing everything right on my 3/4 ton. I have had the BFG Commercial T/A's-2 sets. Tranforce HT's. Coopers HT3's and several others.

RE: Need Tire Recommendation; Disappointed in Firestone H/T

Another vote for the Nitto Dura Grapplers. I replaced the original BFG on my 08 MegaCab with these. Great tire, quiet and smooth. Have about 40k on them now, still lots to go Looks like a good tire Interested. Can't find a warranty on them.

RE: Need Tire Recommendation; Disappointed in Firestone H/T

" BF Goodrich is OK but they are owned by Michelin and are just their entry tire IMO. " At least 100K on these 4th 2010 take offs on my last 98 12V RAM 2wd. https://i.imgur.com/LWDJ39Il.jpg What size and style are these?

RE: Need Tire Recommendation; Disappointed in Firestone H/T

I have 52K miles on my OEM LT245/75R17 LRE BF Goodrich Rugged Trail T/A tires. And they are still looking good. No cracks and plenty of rubber left. At this point, I'm happy enough with them, I'd put the same or comparable tires back on. Wasn't aware that LT tires came on F-150's

RE: Rolling over IRA's, 401k, 403b's etc (tax defered stuff)

You are still able to deduct contributions to charities: Charitable Giving After Tax Reform Yes but, as the standard deduction is now 24k not 12k, it will be much harder for the vast majority of us, to get over that 24K to make charity donations deductible Good job of clarifying my comment.

RE: Rolling over IRA's, 401k, 403b's etc (tax defered stuff)

Still lots to learn about the new tax laws but I surmise that most people will no longer be able to deduct contributions to charity and other avenues that they have do so in the past. Mortgage deductions may be included. I am wondering how that will affect giving.

RE: Need Tire Recommendation; Disappointed in Firestone H/T

Michelin, Coopers----- I have Cooper Discovery HT3 245/75R17 LT. Replaced my OEM Firestone Transforce HT at 21,870. I now have 48,003 miles and they are at the wear bars. About 12,000 miles towing. Free rotation at 5,000 miles. Aired to Chevrolet recommendations. Even wear across the treads. Will not get Michelins but will replace soon. Unsure of what I will get. These Coopers are warranted for 50,000 miles. Some LT tires do not have warranty miles. I do not drive off road.

RE: GFCI and an Open Ground

well considering neutral and ground are tied together at the panel, it would be considered faulted 100% of the time What if one of them shorts out? Had an issue with a receptacle a while back. Found that the neutral arced out at the buss bar. I am not giving electrical advise, just stating an issue I had and have no idea why it arced. Loose maybe?

RE: First 5th Wheel--Bad Braking???

Is this a brand new trailer? 1,000 miles seems a bit long to wait and investigate brake issues. I would start with a clamp-on DC ammeter to check each wheel is getting 3 amps when the brake is manually applied. If that checks out I would inspect all brakes by removing the drums. If you are not getting 3 amps per wheel check the wiring and controller. From what I have read I agree that each wheel should receive 3 amps when fully applied but would 3 amps per wheel guarantee that the brakes are working and stopping correctly? Would not 3 amps per wheel and improperly adjusted brakes give the OP the same problem he describes?

RE: Ex. LP tank of 40 gals

You could put 2 in the front seat. Use existing seat belts to fasten.If your car is old enough to have the vent windows that many had before AC you could run a hose from there to your RV. Use duct tape to seal the vent window to keep bugs and critters out.:)Charlie your starting to get like someone else we know. Hey Keith. Missed you. I try to learn from the Masters. You are the Great Obi Wan.
