    It's a used one but I've wanted a Shirley forever. Finally dried out enough to move it to the back deck with all my other cookers. Can't wait to use it!

    GE Opal Countertop Nugget Ice Maker.  Arrived Tuesday.  Game Changer.

    I have one in the office. You'll love it
    Please school me on this as our refrigerator ice maker is a certified POS. No water or drain line hookup? Is it noisy?

    @bangor307 -  You can't wear out a Shirley.  Playing with sticks is a totally different ball-game.  Have fun.

    From what I understand.  . . And this goes with many things.  . . This is the cheapest part if it? 
    Yes, buying is the cheap part.  Between trucks, trailers, feed, vets, ferrier, dentist, chiropractor, supplements, entry fees, etc horses are not cheap.  Trail horses can be relatively inexpensive, but performance horses definitely are not cheap.  My monthly horse bills are more than the mortgage on my first house, and I only have 3.

    My daughter is in 4H and she had to track all the horse costs.  It was mind boggling.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    It amazes me, how many people do not realize how the future works.

    My wife is currently looking at a zebra.  We have a friend who has one, they are crazy creatures, but can be fun and are unique. (Supposedly absolute terrors, I know they can jump real high, even from a stand still)

    They are very good at killing predators for sure.  Evolving in Africa with lions and other large predators would definitely require some unique traits.  A number of those traits make them very hard to handle, they require a lot of patience and positive reinforcement.  Hopefully, we stick to horses, donkeys, and mules, but every time I see a zebra for sale I wonder.

    We have three horses now as well as a slew of other critters. Would like to try a couple of alpacas. My wife would make it a Zoo if we could.

    Two Cleveland Bays and a Thoroughbred @ 17.5 hands that doesn't quite understand how big he is.

    Very cool, I have never been around Cleveland Bays, but they are very good looking breed.  We have 3 quarter horses.  For the rodeo and our types of trails they are a great breed.  They range from 14.2 to 16.1 small by your horses standards!

    Did you mean 17.2 for that thorough bred?  Even at that, he is a monster.  I rode a 17.1 hand thorough bred for a few years, I really liked the vantage point.

    Yes, typo. He is a big teddy bear that likes to cuddle. MIL swears he has Secretariat lineage, which might explain why he never made it to the track,lol .
    The Bay's have big hooves. Wife does want a quarter horse. We were looking a bit before the world went goofy.

    After 10 years of trouble-free use, I have decided to replace my Panasonic Plasma TV.
    I have purchased a 2019 Samsung Q90 - 65 Inch TV.

    It's really nice to be able to watch TV in the day with the windows open. I didn't realize how dim the old plasma was.

    The Onkyo 5008 is next on the list for replacement, along with the Oppo Blu-ray/Sacd player. The Oppo is a fantastic player for music, but sadly it won't do the newer Ultra HD Blu-ray format.

    Look at Anthem AV products - great sound at a good price. I agree on the Oppo, my BDP-105 is a great piece, but could use some updating.

    I was hoping someone would make a recommendation for a new receiver.

    Hard item to find. I just grabbed one off Webstaurantstore. I checked Friday and they showed a few Galaxy commercial chest freezers in stock

    Check a restaurant surplus store. Surely there are a lot of used commercial grade freezers available.
