  • Would love to see a deep push by Calgary first and then St. Louis. If The Cup can’t go to either of them then I’d love to see it go North of the border to Toronto or Winnipeg. Love playoff hockey!!
  • Job well done! And how did you enjoy the compliments once guests ate your pork godliness??
  • Obviously you guys have not met your significant other at the right [email protected] counseling needed!!😁😁😂
  • Great insight, thanks everyone. I’m flying home from work this week. I’ll need to have it checked out as I get closer to 100k. I know enough about engines to be dangerous. Changing oil/fluids, battery no big deal but ripping into an engine and messi…
  • Nature Boy said: Maybe I am an abusive owner , but I have 270K on my 2008 and have still not replaced it I’ve probably seen it parked at Dizzy Pig the few times I’ve made it to VA and made it by the store. 
  • There’s really only 2 negatives I could say about this truck, the fuel mileage and some of the interior buttons like lock/unlock/mirrors are not backlit to find them easily when it’s dark outside. We live that the whole back window goes down. Would …
  • Thanks everyone, sure appreciate the feedback. I’ve got the 5.7 as I’ve got the 1794 package.
  • Old Time Christmas by George Strait and Let It Be Christmas by Alan Jackson.
  • How deep is your pipe? Most city codes call for that type of repair to be encased in concrete to support the weight of dirt on top and to prevent the pipe and fernco from being pushed down or off causing additional drain problems. Good luck.
  • Interesting, doesn’t look like any of the pictures that I attached made it here. Sorry!
  • I’ve been getting mine at Sams Club cooked for $4.99. We recently just purchased 25 chickens from there. Told them what day and time we wanted to pick them up. They had them ready, brought them home and pulled all the meat while they were hot. Lots …
  • That is a “Frost” proof hydrant. It should angle towards the outside. That way when you turn your hose off, the water drains out of the pipe. It’s important to remove your hose when the weather gets cold enough to freeze. Share a picture of your fix…
  • @JohnnyTarheel, I just got back from work and made a call to my closest exmark dealer. The one I purchased the one I have is no longer in business. Does 3-4 k sound right? That’s what the guy told me over the phone. Seems awfully high to me??
  • Thanks @JohnnyTarheel...I’ll be looking into it. I also get a lot of leaves in the fall. Do you catch your grass clippings as well for each mow?
  • I have been running a 60” exmark for about 13 years. Aside from normal oil/grease maintenance, no issues. Granted, it is above the $5000.00 range you are looking to spend. I have a friend that is very pleased with his “bad boy” zero turn. @JohnnyTa…
  • My condolences! Always enjoyed reading what LS had to say. I was raised in Alberta so those Northerners from the Great White North tend to get my attention. RIP Little Steven!
  • Thanks for the insight gents. I’ve had to replace 2 cracked bases before and warranty has never been an issue. Ever since my last cracked base, I seldom ever even get to 500°....with the mold forming inside, maybe I should have just gone up to about…
  • I was sort of doing one as well since I had some mold developing inside....stayed between 600-700° and then heard a”pop” and a chunk of the green layer popped off. Anything to be concerned about or just let it ride?
  • I purchased my XL at my local Ace in MO. I’ve had 2 cracked bases that I’ve made warranty claims and had no issues at all. That has been my experience.
  • Excellent feedback guys! Appreciate all the tips and links. @SmokeyPitt...I suggest you buy a very small set!! My wife LOL when I read her your comment!! She is very grateful for all the comments as well. 
  • I quickly got on Cutcos website while she was still talking to the guy and the website had the same marketing price...the guy was going to throw in a free ice cream scoop, peeler and like 2 other things...a deal too good to pass on but boy am I glad…
  • Ha, ha!! That’s why I’m not even upset about wife and daughter were just wanting to do something nice for me and surprise me. I don’t deserve them but sure am glad they love me!!
  • Thank you! I just got off the phone with her and talked her down...we will look to see what other options might be out there. She has used Cutco before and likes them and knows that they stand behind their warranty. 
  • I’m going to try for wings again. Pretty inconsistent cook for me and I’d like to become much more proficient with them cause we like them so well. I’ll probably try some Bad Byron’s, S&P and maybe some others. How much corn starch does a person…
  • When you do the point by its self, do you tend to make burnt ends out of it or just take it till it probes like butter?
  • Made Smashburgers for the first time on mine yesterday. Everyone loved them!! Only the second time I've used my Blackstones. I think they'll start getting a little more use now.
  • I use one with the nose pillows. Love it, I hate dosing off for a nap without it because I wake up all sore in the throat area because of snoring. There's no doubt I could stand to lose a good 50-75 lbs...I currently fluctuate between 300-310 lbs...…
  • Thanks for all the responses...I get to Nashville generally a few times each year....nice to know some places other than McDonalds and Subway!! I'll check some of the other places out on other visits. When my wife joins me I'll take her to one of th…
