Our dear, sweet Kiara (the female Pyr we just lost this spring) was hell on anything that looked like a hawk, and she'd jump up and bark at the plane until it flew off. Bless her. I wish Jasper would look up sometimes, but I guess he never learned because that was Kiara's job. She did keep the hawks and eagles away, that's for sure. If I saw one before she did, which wasn't often, I'd yell, "Kiara! HAWK!" and she'd leap to her feet and scan the sky until she spotted it, then take off across the property to see it on its way. There is NOTHING better than a good dog.
Anyway, if you hear "Caw! Caw!" don't look up, because you might get ca-ca in the face. Yes, it happened to me. Ick.
Oh, and by the way, LadyDi, ARE YOU THERE YET?

Had a good day yesterday Cut 80 acres - Still have 70 to go in this field - Will be short handed today - so will push us hard to finish it today |
Yields are disappointing in this field - one of our better fields - just no rain in Sept. it is what it is .
Missed out on some great pictures yesterday - well last night - full moon - dark -- add in lots of dust - pretty cool site .

Thus I will track over the next few weeks and see how they change the doors in the house. Will take the readings 4:30 - 5:00pm when I get home from work.
Main - in the kitchen = 75.2 ^F and 46% Hum
Master Bath(#1) = 73.9^F and 49% Hum
Crawl Space (#2) = 74.8^F and 59% Hum
Crawl Space (3) = 74.8^F and 58% Hum
Outside air = 81^F and 51% Hum
We have the inside AC on at 74^F....was working a bit and got hot will turn back up to 75^F at some point....the temp sensor is closest to the Master Bath just outside the Master Bedroom
So all in the ballpark
The humidity being higher in the crawl space makes sense....One foundation person had it at 60% as well.
EDIT - FYI ---according to which site but these seem to be the best humidity ranges:
30-50% with 45% being the best
Mold can begin to grow 60% or higher.....

Headed out to start cutting beans ! |
See Ya all later

Now we have had 2 companies look at our crawl space...."arm and leg" required to fix. |
To correct the "issues" - a few doors will not close during summer months when the humidity goes up. One door is already able to close completely again. Shimming hinges or shaving doors wouldn't help.
The fixes would be using a jack system of sorts on the various floor joists.
With early years of standing water and the humidity- we do have some slight mold growth.
Total encapsulation with dehumidifier and sump pump is in the $15,000 range....2 arms and a leg...
Researching as always raises number of questions - how much or little can one do and be ok?
Main question is if humidity is the issue can I reduce that and not worry with the jack systems....I will be able to tell better when late fall/winter come along.
And of course I can reduce cost by doing some of the work myself!

Yesterday while Mila and I were outside - I heard honking going on in the sky....Mila heard it as well and started looking up and prancing. I told her hold a sec they will come over. Within a few seconds they flew over the house / yard in their nice V formation and honking away. Mila was protecting the house and chased them away |
And just before all that we scared away a ton of crows from the trees....wasn't sure what they were doing there...typically they don't do that.

Sorry you had bad experience with RA, but I use only PayPal payments and have never had any problems.
First I go to OEM sites to verify part numbers and get reference (dealer) list prices by entering vehicle VIN into databases.
For Ford I go to Ford OEM Parts Site or Varsity Ford:
For Honda I use HondaPartsNow:
I subscribe to Mitchell Online shop manuals for all my vehicles in use, because they have excellent diagrams, troubleshooting procedures- but no OEM part #'s. You can print diagrams and procedures for use in garage.
After getting OEM part number and reference price, then I head to Rock Auto to enter part number or look at database for vehicle in categories setup.
Then comparison to aftermarket and OEM, also sold on Rock Auto can be made. Also, some aftermarket parts are not shown on catalog for vehicle due to price agreements (Dorman primary cat conv. for instance- only found with OEM part # search)
Rock Auto has mainly engine and mechanical components but few trim & body pieces, which I still get from OEM sites or off eBay if price difference is big.
Many trim pieces on eBay are pulls from salvaged/junked vehicles and work fine vs. OEM new, in most cases, for refurbing older vechicles. OEM p/n's are essential for buying correct item on eBay.
RockAuto shipping is a bit high for Fedex ground for small order so best to order batch of parts to distribute costs. I've also had expedited items sent by DHL, on occasion.
Price comparison example for 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid 1.3L 4L
OEM Catalytic Converter/Exhaust Manifold (bare)
$1400 Honda Parts Now
OEM Secondary Cat NOx Converter $1292
OEM Air/Fuel rato Sensor #1 - $328
OEM Oxygen Sensors #2 & 3 - $674
Dorman Primary Cat Converter Kit (w/ hardware and Exh manifold gasket)- $310 Rock Auto (same Dorman item O'Reilly Auto - $453)
Walker Secondary Cat NOx Converter - $156
NTK Air/Fuel rato Sensor #1 - $131
NTK Oxygen Sensors #2 & 3 - $90
I will purchase OEM if price difference is not substantial and for certain crital parts. Some sensors I will only get OEM, like the MAP sensor on my 2006 Escape, as this is a crucial part for determining engine running performance via the PCM (computer). Same goes for fuel injectors, spark plug coils, spark plugs- always get OEM Motorcraft or Honda.
Example for 2006 Escape 2.3L L4 EGR Valve:
Ford OEM List $116, FordParts OEM $76 RockAuto OEM $63 A/M $40
In this case- purchased Motocraft OEM Ford Parts because had free Fedex shipping over $75 orders. Unfortunately, Ford Parts stopped accepting PayPal earlier this year.
Also A/C condensors, I buy OEM because they have same stone resistant construction & flow type/volume to keep charge amounts same as original. Many aftermarket condensers are flimsy and don't take stone impacts well.

Part of it is this hokey laptop keyboard, but some of it is I'm just feeling discombobulated today. The weather has improved, so I'm not stressed about that, but it could be a post-stress crash. I do have those a lot. You should have seen me after Zipper passed away. That one took a couple week to recover from.
Anyway, I'm gonna go have another pot of coffee, I think. I love you guys!

Nothing like ice cold dew on the grass...I swear, if Mocha could lift all 4 paws at once to avoid getting them wet, she would. She may have broken her all-time record this morning for getting her business done. |
In other news, my smoker is still in its place...I guess it's safe to disarm the booby traps now

You all enjoyed that extra four hours.
I bet Mrs Davy wanted to stop at every scenic look out and hit the antique shops.

Good Morning All! |
I am trying to be a good girl today, but it's really hard.
I am trying to put my resume together and put it out on the grid and have decided I don't want my name ALL OVER the grid. It's exhausting, depressing and a bunch of BS.
I am not going to go Facebook and Hashtag.
Half of the crap I sign into will just end up sending me spam crap.
I don't get the world today...
Does anyone here want to assist me with the new way (to me) to apply for jobs?
On another note. I wish the sun would come up so I can go release the captives. I let chickens out to free roam yesterday when I got off work. They all behaved and went to bed in the appropriate place. The coop! Counted 19 chickens before they were locked down.
What's everyone else's agenda for the day?
|10-13-2019 06:01 AM|
That's the going price for the tires I have been buying from my same vendor in different States, for years. Prices really haven't gone up for me. I get 3-4 years out of them.
