RE: Ohio State Will Be In Final Four (4) If...

Had a few worries during the Tennessee game but things settled down in the second half. I believe Williams is playing better ball than Guice and should get more playing time. Etling made a few good runs. As expected, passing game for LSU is still lacking and Etling can not complete mid to long range side line passes. Tennessee did a good job responding to LSU's touchdown at the end of the first half with a TD quicker than LSU did. Brought the game closer. Game was broadcast by 2nd or 3rd tier announcers but they did get one thing right. LSU has a long history of defensive back and running game development but can not get a good passing game with their running game for a long time. The Aggies are next.

RE: Reply not working on email?

I use Outlook mail through my Hotmail account and found that it was not sending emails although they were in my "sent" box. When I clicked "send" it would go to my draft box and show a moving bar to show the progress and when sent my draft box would go away. Sent myself several and they never showed up in my in box. Did lot's of searches, followed lot's of suggestions and nothing worked. Never had an issue with receiving. Finally decided to uninstall Google and reinstall. Problem solved.

RE: Heart attack,

Sorry to hear about your health Kent. Follow the doctors advise. Good luck on your recoveryTwo weeks before I went back to S.D. I had a ecohgram and a stress test, looked great, never know. Went in for five surgury and recovery, looked up and both my daughts were stand there. Pays to send those large xmas checks each year. Riding home in pickup 1500 miles with wife driving is about as bad as chest pain. Glad you still have your sense of humor. Now that you are recovering you can do more posting. So many new members here that need educating on diesels and 4 wheel drives that they don't need.

RE: Health Insurance Advice

He moved in with my sister in May due to his Parkinsons and Dementia. There isn't a VA outpatient facility with 100 miles of where they live. She is a nurse so he will be going to the doctors she knows and trusts. The insurance guy who handles his annuity and also sells plans as well said that we need to look at a AARP plan. They have 10 different levels that cover absolutely everything that Medicare doesn't pay to plans where the insured has to pay roughly 50% of covered expenses. Have you looked into Veterans Choice? Been around for a few years and I think it needs annual funding but I and several I know have used it. There is a VA clinic about 30 miles from me but I will not drive the 100+ miles to Houston for things they do not offer. It may require a certain percentage of disability to use. I have Medicare and Aetna as a secondary and use the VA primarily for meds. and a few other health issues. I had eye issues a few months ago and they set me up with a local civilian Ophthalmologist and a local dentist instead of going to Houston.

RE: Ohio State Will Be In Final Four (4) If...

Not ready to hand the trophy to the Tide just yet. Auburn gave them a fair fight defensively. I'm anxious to see how they fare against the Dawgs' defense in the SEC title game. When did 'Bama play Auburn? Not until 11/25. Mississippi State played a great game at LSU but has been blown out by Auburn and Georgia. I expect them to lose much the same way against Alabama. Alabama still has to play Auburn and Georgia. Georgia may be the only one to defeat Alabama this year. Auburn may play them a good game depending on which Auburn team shows up.

RE: Uber expensive pickups...how much of a trend ?

With interest rates at practically zero, why wouldn't you finance them and then invest your cash in something that will give an actual return? Most of the people I know have nothing or very little to invest. That's why they finance 6 plus years and remain upside when they trade for something else in a few years.

RE: Uber expensive pickups...how much of a trend ?

According to my commercial salesman, largely the only people that walk in and buy a 70K plus diesel pickup are farmers (on the good years) and contractors. The average person making an average wage with average credit are buying used. There is no question that the prices have over shot the rise in wages. If they are buying used why are the sales reaching new records almost every month? I see people buying new outrageously expensive cars and trucks because they view them as a status symbol of which few can really afford. See 1-2 year old loaded trucks on dealer lots that were traded in on newer more expensive vehicles. Guy posted on Facebook the other day wanting to sell his 2017 Ford King Ranch because he wanted a 2018. Insane. Those average persons of average wages and average credit can buy anything they want and finance for 72-76 months and no payments for 90 days. They then tire of it and wake up one morning wondering how they are going to pay for it. A credit rating of 580 will get you the home of your dreams with little down. I see homes being for sale that have been sold previously 6-12 months ago. I envision another housing crisis and MOST of these buyers are millennials. They want it and they want it NOW!

RE: best chainsaws

I believe Stihl will double the warranty if you buy a 6 pack of their synthetic oil. Tired of the big box stores and having to deal with warranty issues, if any.

RE: Rain problem.

Bedroom slide on my unit has Swintek side rails. Water wicked under the slide and rotted out small areas under the slide at the outside wall. I removed the rot and repaired the wood. It has the Darco wrap which is not water proof. I bought some thin aluminum sheeting from Home depot. (.085" I think) Used a box cutter to score several times and then broke it at the scored lines. Used heavy duty 3M double sided tape and attached it along the bottom side of the Swintek rail. I cut it long enough so that when I lifted the slide I could run it all the way under that slide. I then used Dicor non-sag lap sealant along the bottom between the new aluminum and Swintek rail and along the horizontal top and screw heads. I read on another forum that a member found that the trim pieces on the 4 corners of the slide were not sealed and water ran between them and the wall and then down to the bottom. I removed mine, added lap sealant and reinstalled. I then ran a bead all the way around them. My other 2 slides have the rack and pinion. I noticed water wicking down the side and under them. I bought a piece of aluminum drip edge for roofs, loosend the screws and inserted it under the drip edge and caulked there. Good luck

RE: What's your Suggested yearly Maintenance/Repair fund/budget?

Depends on location in Texas. Where industry is prevalent they pay huge amounts. Schools are typically the ones with high taxes and inside the city limits vs. county can make a big difference.

RE: Amazon's Jeff Bezos Just Opened A Massive Wind Farm In Texas

Demand continually rises but I do not see much effort in conservation. I know it is talked about and some effort is made but keep an eye out for videos and pictures of our cities. Seems every building office is lit up at night. How much could be saved if the owners insisted that employees turn off lights as the close up?

RE: Amazon's Jeff Bezos Just Opened A Massive Wind Farm In Texas

Efficiency along with pros and cons will always be debated but with the continued placement of windmills to assist in reducing fossil fuels the economics is also there. If it wasn't they would not be installing them.

RE: Amazon's Jeff Bezos Just Opened A Massive Wind Farm In Texas

I didn't know coal fired power plants did not pollute.:? I do know that we have not solved the issue of what to do with spent nuclear fuel. I believe Nevada was the site of a huge underground storage facility that cost billions of dollars and when almost finished a Nevada Senator who opposed the facility from the beginning put a stop to moving spent fuel there. The day if reckoning is close.

RE: Amazon's Jeff Bezos Just Opened A Massive Wind Farm In Texas

When the wind turbines were in their infancy in the states I thought much of them were built here with the technology developed by the Europeans. Perhaps I remember incorrectly but I believe most of the construction is now done overseas, probably China. I often see the blades going down the roads with escorts and the turbine housings going down the road covered in white plastic that has been heat shrunk around them. Corpus Christi port has a huge area where the blades are off loaded and I guess there are other ports receiving them. Anyone know how much is built in the U.S. or has other countries now taken that away also?

RE: Top 5 Winningest Programs In College Football History!

Off subject but aren't you a Toledo Alumni? Looks like they are playing some good ball. How about Michigan? What is your take on future games> Saw signs at Penn State saying they want the Tide. Sometimes enthusiasm outweighs thinking and reality.
