Originally it was to be the 1025r but for the $2000.00 difference with a slightly different option selection (more suiting our needs) we went with the 1023e which is identical but for some trim bits and the engine is 2hp less. Which is plenty for the snow blowing, stone wall moving, mowing etc plans we have for it.

You will love it. We have a 2320, best money I ever spent. You will start making things up to do. I'm still amazed at all the things we use ours for. I still need to get a blower for mine. Back blade has a hard time in the wet stuff.
Is your blower JD or aftermarket?

It's all Green.

The blower is 54". One and a half passes of the driveway and I'll be done.

The back blade will be aftermarket if I can find something local. The shipping is way too much on it online. It will be for pulling snow away from the garage etc.

This is on the way as well.

Look for a back blade at a place that sells used implements or on Craigslist. I picked up a box blade, post hole digger and roller for probably half the price as new and were all in great shape.

Nice rig.  Will those tires be adequate in winter conditions or do you have chains?

The tires are being swapped for turf tires and the blower comes with a set of chains.

Fourstring and I are much better today.  At least neither of us had to go to the ER.  Also, we were in a nice hotel room with AC and two separate beds.  There were no children so we had to be responsible to no one but ourselves.

Cookie,

Idk if you have wood burning in your home but one of the most useful attachments I had for my Kubota was a PTO wood splitter. It cut both ways and the basket on both sides meant no bending over 2 or 3 times to pick up the same log. I have one forplace and two wood stoves in my home and burn 3 to 4 cords a year.

Congrats to you!

First became an EMT in my 30's in 1995

That is the year that I graduated from High School and started my career.
 

That is the year I graduated from fourth grade!  ;D

I'd graduated, went to collage, 2 years in the army, went to collage, got married, had 2 kids, and moved to a different state with my families, and my kids were about 15 by 1995.

On the drive home from Florida, I noticed some odd noises from the front end. Either a wheel bearing or a tie rod end is going away. As it rolled 160k just before arriving home, I'm going with all new front end parts just because.

I ordered https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-10pc-Front ... 2749.l2649 today. I'll also be replacing the CV shafts and the entire wheel bearing/wheel hubs while I'm in there from the same seller.

There's a new upgraded front sway bar awaiting install in the garage and a full set of poly bushings for the entire car here. Guess I'm getting dirty all next weekend. For less than $300, the entire suspension will be refurbished and good for another 100k. Shocks and springs were done a few years ago with Gabriel shocks and Ford performance springs with uprated upper mounts.


Note: well, damn. I just got notice the parts will be here tomorrow. It helps the seller is 20 miles away and shipped UPS.

We have a variety show in our middle school and we had it today.  Note:  Variety, not talent.  While there is lots of variety, there is not always talent.  A few of us teachers did  two acts.  One with much of the staff, one with the two other guys I teach with.  Fun stuff. 

I continue to love my job.

Started the disassembly of the Focus' front suspension.  I've found the lower ball joints slightly worn, both sides lower wheel bearings roasted and the tie rod ends are meh.  The CV shafts are still ok, but I ordered new because I'm there already.  The sway bar links were well worn too.  I have all new to go back together.


Did I mention I hate salt applied for snow.  The shocks were out last spring for the trans replacement and they're already rusted back in place.  I'll break out the mapp gas and warm them up a touch after the penetrating fluid does it's job.


All the fasteners will get wire wheeled and de-crudded before assembly with the blue loctite and torque wrench.  I may end up running thread cleaners in all the tapped sockets too.

... to store the ramp my brother uses to put his motorcycle in his toy hauler.

I generally use a nice Lincoln Electric spool of wire in my harbor freight welder, but I ran out and had to use the HF wire I had on the shelf. Holy crap, I'd forgotten how bad and splattery and jumpy that wire is :(

But with good wire, the welder gets it done just fine.

Speaking of which... Need to remind my brother to order me another spool or two of wire.

A guitar?  Try a lead, a rhythm, an acoustic and a 4-string with drums and keyboard lol.    Lord knows I've joked enough about being a recovering Catholic for the last 30+ yrs.  Without getting too preachy and looking at where this world going,  if it helps get the Message to those who need it in their lives, I'm cool with it.

Went to "church" this morning with the grandkids.  I put "church" in quotes because it was more like a Christian Rock concert than any Mass this former Catholic Alter boy has ever been to.

Liz has a nice rant queued up for this topic at all times. She's a Classically trained choral singer (she's singing at Westminster Abbey this summer!!!), and to her the idea of a guitar in church is akin to kicking puppies for fun.

A guitar?  Try a lead, a rhythm, an acoustic and a 4-string with drums and keyboard lol.    Lord knows I've joked enough about being a recovering Catholic for the last 30+ yrs.  Without getting too preachy and looking at where this world going,  if it helps get the Message to those who need it in their lives, I'm cool with it.
^That. 

I enjoy the mix.  We do some organ/piano, some acoustic/electric/bass/keyboards/drums.  Different strokes and all.  I figure it's just about what allows you to worship well.  Today I was on the bass.

I bought a new lawn mower on Saturday and posted up my old Husqvarna on the NextDoor app.   I described it as the HU800A All-Wheel Drive Model.
The first response I got asked if it was "only 4 wheel drive, or is it self-propelled too?"     :nuts:

The first church I went to that had guitar, drums, piano, organ, and horns was the one I stayed with from post-HS until I moved out of the state with my young family many years later. They grew to 5 services each sunday to handle the growth of attendees, then built a new building that became one of the first megachurches (no TV stuff though).

My comment (made through grinning teeth at the time) was that it was the first time I'd seen a stage band in a church. They played a little too much country-flavored-music for my taste but the youth and young adult services could get your toes tapping.

Looking for capacity numbers, I ran across Pastor Schaeffer's 2010 obit that noted (IMO more important the butts in the seats (13000 sq ft main auditorium):

"According to The Oklahoman archives, Crossroads Cathedral was the first Assembly of God church in the United States to give more than $1 million to foreign missions in a single year. Mountain Movers magazine in 1994 showed that Crossroads members gave $1,007,094 to missions during 1993."

All I know was that the Wed teaching services were detailed and deep while Sunday services were packed even in the larger facility and getting late meant sitting in the back. Most churches fill the back seats first.

Rabbit hole time: Neat! I knew the audio system had to deal with time-delayed output to cancel echo. This I didn't know.

Forced a stubborn, stuck bearing race in a snowmobile bogie wheel to bend to my will:

The old race first split around the middle and half came out, then the other half ended up breaking into pieces.  Yes, I also had applied penetrating oil (and it soaked for 2 days) and heat.  Steel bearing in an aluminum wheel- I've never had one stick like that before!
