RE: Bakken oil patch fires

The view from space. http://media.npr.org/assets/img/2013/01/16/drilling_wide-1441c4009ef43edadc5fc20160cc9430b866d629-s40-c85.jpg width=480 Link to npr.org

RE: Which College Football Game(s) Are You Watching Today?

North Dakota State wins 31 in a row by putting away a good team rather easily.

RE: Saving $5.00 Bills

I use what little loose change I collect in the self-checkout lines at the supermarket. That way I can earn interest on the money that would have otherwise come out of the checking account. Our credit union pays much higher interest rates on checking accounts if we use the debit card 13 times per month. It still isn't much, but it's better than zero percent. :)

RE: Going back to cash

Tips are taxable income. I pay taxes on all the money I earn, why shouldn't everyone else? There is a third alternative to cash or credit. Has anyone used the "gift credit cards" you can get in places like Wal-Mart... The ones you can add a specified dollar amount to? These don't have any personal info on them but can work just like a credit card. Wonder if the discounts would be the same at the merchants? BTW... if you are tipping in a restaurant, please be kind and leave cash even if you are paying for the meal with a credit card. Some of the restaurants have been taking taxes out of the tip money before giving it to the waitresses/waiters.

RE: Delete

The logo on the video references Australia so the biker was going the wrong way down the road.

RE: which jeep grand cherokee is best

My overland with the ecodiesel engine has 1,050 lbs listed as the cargo carrying capacity on the sticker. The Jeep web site says I should have a max payload of 1,170 with 4x4. I would think my payload should be less than the gassers since the diesel engine is heavier and I doubt they use any different suspension components.

RE: which jeep grand cherokee is best

The turbocharged diesel really pays off in the mountains where the air is thinner and gassers start to struggle with heavy loads. For what it's worth, our ecodiesel averaged 30 MPG on a road trip (not towing, of course) from Oregon to New Orleans and back. The 8-speed tranny in the new models makes a big difference as our 2008 CRD would only get around 25 MPG on similar routes. That's not bad for a 4x4 that has an EPA estimate of 28 MPG on the highway

RE: Bend Oregon- What the weather in mid Oct?

If anyone still cares, Bend is drier than Portland as it's on the other side of the cascades. Even in Portland, it's generally warm and dry in the fall until November when we get our heaviest rain from the pineapple express.

RE: SEC Dominates Best Tailgating Schools!

My alma mater, North Dakota State is #4 in this ranking.

RE: Football: College vs nfl

I like them both, but pro football a little better as the teams are more evenly matched. Blowouts are far more common in the college game.

RE: Moles

Are there animals that act like moles? We thought we had one with tunnels coming up to the surface and then we saw an animal like a squirrel or chipmunk digging a hole in the grass. We have one cat who spends a few hours outside most days, but she's too slow to catch anything.

RE: Are ya ready for some football

Did you hear about the fire in the library at the Alabama student-athlete tutoring building? Most of the books hadn't even been colored yet.

RE: A peeve of mine.

I generally won't wave if someone pulls over to let people pass. Then again, I won't tailgate if someone's going slow either.

RE: How to move a million pound load

They have shipped giant equipment via rail on specialized railcars that were so heavy it could only be done in the winter when the ground was frozen solid between Duluth and the tar sands in Canada.

RE: Ram Eco-Diesel vs F150 2.7 TT - Davis Dam

That's because the Jeep has 8 gears. Our 2008 CRD Grand Cherokee was at 2,000 RPM in 5th gear so it never had to shift down into 4th unless we were towing. The 2014 ecodiesel's 8th gear doesn't hit 2,000 RPM until 77 MPH. I am not surprised how that 2.7 Ecoboost can out pull the 3.0 Ecodiesel. I have the Ecodiesel in a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it will shift out of 8th on the slightest incline without pulling a trailer. The 3.5 Ecoboost in my 2012 F150 needs a very steep hill before it will shift out of 6th. Fuel economy, well we won't talk about that. Interestingly enough owners of the Ram with the Ecodisel are reporting fuel economy as good as the Grand Cherokee with the same engine.

RE: HowOld Codgers Can Afford That New Prevost

I have a retro cycling jersey from the early 1990s I've considered putting up on eBay. It's never been worn and looks like this with those funny-looking floppy disks. Remember those? http://cdn.cycling-jersey-collection.com/images/2014-01-28-decca-wordperfect-suntour-colnago-team-jersey-trikot-maglia-maillot.jpg width=600

RE: UPDATE! Ordered a 2015 Eco-Diesel today! :)

For what it's worth, our Grand Cherokee with the ecodiesel averaged 30.5 MPG on a trip from Portland to central California and back. The EPA estimate is "only" 28 MPG highway for the 4WD version. Congrats Don, Like others I'm interested in finding out what the real world MPG, acceleration is....solo and at maximum tow rating.

RE: Internet cost at home

Our HOA has a wide area network which allows us to get internet access separate from the phone and cable companies. We pay $30/month for 100 Mbps access and could pay an extra $60/mo. for 1 Gbps access.
