Have them ballast the rear tires for you.  I have a 40HP Mahindra and sometimes my 60" box is a lot for my tractor.  For a mower you need to cover your track but with a blade you can make another pass.

Something to always remember, if you aren't reading Anceint Hebrew it is a translation.  If it is not the original document it is a copy.  Your #3 is the answer I believe.  Here is a link that might help.

On the trailer, I had built a 24 dove tail'.  Had them put on the fenders as removable so I get about 3 extra inches on each side when needed and didn't have to go with a deck over/extra height.  It has stake pockets so I can use side boards if I want.  2 7K axels with brakes.  I liked keeping it a little lower than a deck over.  Around 3700 dollars.

I have a 40 hp Mahindra 4wd with FEL that I use around the farm.  Love it.  I can also see times that the skid steer would be great.  The lesson I learned on the tractor, I am on the second, first was a 28HP, make sure the one you get is big enough or you will work harder as well as live with smaller implements and eventually have to live with it or trade up.  I decided to trade up.

I did that to my mom once while she was standing by the kitchen sink doing fish's. She threw a glass of soapy water right in my face. Left me standing there spitting and sputtering and handed me a towel for cleaning the floor and went back to what she was doing. I believe it was Palmolive.  Worked like a charm.

Picked this up today. A buddy found them on line so I called my gun guy and had him order it. $250 out the door. Then add 3 boxes of shells. I never had anything other than a revolver before.

I have an ultrastar 40. Same company I think.   Pretty good gun. Use it for being placed around inside the house.

Look at a place like palmetto state armory for a different take.  The last one looks like a good price until you read down and see that there is no bolt or bolt carrier group (BCG) or charging handle.

Midway USA has some great assembly video's.  They work for what ever caliber of the ar15 platform.  These things are like legos.  Something that looks like a good deal can be but you also need to know what to look for.  Getting a complete one is faster but it is nice to build one as well.  With some video instruction from a reliable place like Midway USA you can build one from a pile of parts in a couple hours with only a couple special tools.  Ask away.

Our Heros, The "Hooah" or "Ooh-Rah" Place / Re: Tootsie Roll Marines
« on: February 12, 2019, 11:51:35 AM »
At one time, I was assigned to D co. 10th Eng Bn.  They were attached to the Marines during the Chosin Reservoir episode.  While we were deployed once to Kuwait before OIF, he introduced himself to the unit by sending 3 very large cases (24x24 inch boxes) of Tootsie Rolls.  His letter of introduction came after the boxes.  His letter explained the tootsie rolls but didn't make it to us first.  Upon redeployment he meet us at our home station.  His name is Frank Kestner.  He was a PFC at the time and retired as a Major.  It was humbling to meet this warrior.  Here is a link to the book Kubles Mongrels detailing the unit actions during that time.  It makes for great reading.


Faith Discussion / Re: 1 Samuel 28
« on: January 27, 2019, 07:19:36 PM »
I think God allowed Samuel to come back and repeat what he had already told Saul.  That he had ripped the kingdom from him and given it to David.  Saul had not changed his ways or repented.  Samuel always confronted Saul when it needed to be done and I think God allowed Samuel to do it again.  Below is from the Enduring Word Commentary.  Hope this helps.

.""" Some believe that this was a hallucination of the medium. But this doesn’t make sense because it doesn’t explain why the medium was so frightened. It doesn’t explain why Saul also saw Samuel and why Samuel spoke to Saul, not to the medium.
ii. Some believe that this was a deception by the medium. But this also isn’t an adequate explanation, for the same reasons given to the previous suggestion.
iii. Some believe that this was a demonic impersonation of Samuel. It is possible that the medium, with her occultic powers, summoned a demonic spirit that deceived both her and Saul. But this suggestion is also inadequate, because it does not speak to the issue of motive. After all, what advantage does Satan gain by “Samuel’s” words to Saul?
iv. Some believe that this was a genuine (but strange) appearance of Samuel. This is the best explanation because it is supported by the reaction of the medium, who got more than she bargained for. It is also supported by the truth of what Samuel said (and the text says that Samuel said it). Some may say that it is impossible for Samuel to reappear in some way, coming from the world beyond back to this world. But Moses and Elijah also came from the world beyond back to this world when they appeared with Jesus at the Transfiguration (Matthew 17:3).
v. Clarke makes an additional valuable point: “I believe that the woman of En-dor had no power over Samuel; and that no incantation can avail over any departed saint of God, nor indeed over any human disembodied spirit.” Samuel really came, but not because the medium called for him. Samuel appeared because God had a special purpose for it."""

As A PM for a construction company, I can tell you the devil is in the details.  I have to really pay attention to scope of work to ensure that I don't have gaps and also to the exclusions like not removing debris or surface prep ect.  It is unusual to find a sub that goes above the bare minimum anymore.  And the ones that do are usually not the lowest bidder which is what the office folks are worried about.

The only downfall to spray foam is the building envelope is so tight you have to watch the humidity and in my cases I’ve had to add dehumidifiers.

There are different types. Open cell is not as air tight as closed cell.
