It's intersting that someone can turn social media into their catapult to popularity. Lots of people just go on rants about everyday things, and people can't wait for their next one. I gripe all the time, but nobody wants to hear it.
Internet fame and glory..lookin to make that one 'viral' video for whatever reason.

Thank you for that. I ended up spending an hour watching old MP clips.

I mostly like honey wheat. Only time I really like white bread is with BBQ.
Need to try some of the white breads from the HEB bakery and leave the Wonder Bread type on the bread aisle alone..... The English Toasting Bread is good as is the Sourdough. They have a multigrain and a seven grain that I like too. I don't eat a lot of bread so I don't mind its extra cost. Wife bakes an Amish Bread that is good for toast, not so much for sandwiches.
Sounds good will have to look into it. Do they slice it for you? I love homemade bread.
You can get it either way......if your their at the right time. I haven't quite figured out when the best time to be their to get exactly what you want is.....

Sold two bulls from the group of five. One- grey- had kill-out 61.8%, another- red horned- had 64.5%. Both out of first calvers, which were sired by our homebred crossbred bull AngusxCharx. One cow is out of Angusxdairy cow, another out of BBxdairy cow. Both cows have heifers this year, so probably gonna leave both as replacements.
Should sell 7 more soon.

Kate's 9th birthday party at American Girl in Dallas with my wife, mom, sister, and Stevie. I like the travel, so long as they get to go with me. Should give a little insight into the priorities of the boss, as well.
When I worked as a service hand (glorified mechanic) for a drilling company, I often took the family with me when I went on a call. They stayed in a nearby motel while I was on the rig, and afterwards, we saw the local sights together.
And of course, moved frequently under orders when I was in the military.
My immediate and extended family were aghast when I told them I was taking wife and kids with me when I went to Cuba for 2 years.

True Grit Farms wrote:I'm sure not impressed with the longevity of the 2.9 three cylinder turbo engine. I have a 5400 JD with that exact engine and get about 2500 hours between rebuilds. The main problem with the tractor is 540 pto is achieved at 2400 rpm. So every time you mow or grind feed you have to run it wide open. I have a 1020 with the same engine but no turbo that has 6k hours and still has no real blow by. We work our equipment really hard but service it regularly.
That is the biggest problem with my JD5210 2.9 engine is the PTO is so slow, but it does give a little more power at the pto because of this. I bought a turbo and had the parts ordered as I was going to make a turbo tractor out of my JD5210. I got to digging a little deeper and found that the rod pins are bigger on the turbo tractors with the same engine 2.9 and resold the turbo and sent the parts back.
