New shop upgrade!! I fought my old stove all winter last year. Turns out it was messed up since I got it. New stove had 10 bags through it its hole life!! But 1/3rd the price of new. Way more heat!!! My old stove will meet an explosive end to its life

I've been a little distant lately...we had a tree behind the house get hit by lightning a few weeks ago, took out all our internet service, half our satellite TV equipment and some random pieces around the house! Our internet service is sketchy here at best, I have a cat5 cable buried that runs near the tree, the bolt must have gone underground via tree roots, and then came in the house by that cable.

We don't pay enough respect to electricity and technology, until we run out of it. Only then do we realize our loss.
Sorry to hear about your lightning hit, Bill.
The bright side of this is, now you will have lots of 'build' stories and pictures of what you did in the last few weeks, to regale us with.

I did some maintenance on our zero-turn lawn mower and now thanks to a new drive belt tensioner spring it can pull wheelies, about an inch off the ground .

I did some brake maintenance on my 62 then did some power polishing, you can see here one of our 10.5 month old pups (we have male and female litter mates from a litter we raised) helping me polish the car. I only polished the top half of the car in these photos, so it almost looks two-toned.

Yeah we have 5 Border Collies. Ours are bred to be high-energy dogs for Dog Agility (girlfriend does it competitively), so they're pretty energetic ALL THE TIME. So clever too. I know what you mean about too smart for his own good...

Thanks! I hasn't had a wax job in years. It's a whole different colour now!

I hear ya on lightning. I live in an area referred to as "lightning alley". On one of the last bad storms here at my place, I had a close hit. I had an 87 foot tall pine catch it. Lightning jumped from it to another pine the same height but not as old and then over to an oak tree. The big pine is at the corner of my yard fence. Either it was static blast or where the fence crossed wires headed to the house, the blast also knocked out bulbs on all outside lights and a couple of breakers tripped inside at the panel. I watched the trees for a couple of weeks to see if they were gonna die. I wanted to take them down if they did before they started to deteriorate or get bugs. The two pines were turning needles brown so I started the process. I got my bud Jr. to help and we put it down just right without any damage to other trees or the house. Unfortunately, somewhere during our work I managed to crack a bone in my wrist. I worked another day before giving in to the idea I might need to stop the torture. I wrapped it up up and stayed off it for 2 weeks and it felt better so I started working it again...well no, that wasn't good. I'm back to square one being lame. I only managed to get one 12' section cut on the mill with a broke hand and cut and stacked in the kiln. I got 16 @10 inch wide boards and 4@ 8 inch wide boards along with a bunch of 2 1/2" battens. The kiln is full so the next section will go into the barn until I get the 1st batch kiln dried. We'll see how it goes. Jr said he'd do all the work...naw, I can't see that happening but he'll try. I just need to get the trees cut up and tended to so I don't lose the chance at good lumber. The stuff I have cut already is about 3/4 of what I need for a project at my daughters house. As long as I get enough for that project I'll be happy but I really do want to make good use of the lost trees.
