    My rule of thumb for a Marlin/Remlin is to use a .460 boolit.

    Several years ago I was (over)prescribed Hydrocodone for several weeks after a back injury. Insurance company refused to authorize surgery. I had no idea what I was doing; took one so I could get moving in the morning and another to sleep at night....

    A cleaning jag and a damp patch works well. Windshield washer fluid is cheap, and evaporates quickly. Run one down each tube between each stage.

    Been using MMO for 40 yrs in air tools. Some sit for years in an unheated shed between uses but they always work. I suspect it works as a detergent in engine crankcases; good for maintenance but possibly a bad idea for sludged-up engines. Sludge...

    I buy most of my MTD parts from SEPW. Reasonable prices and freight, great catalogs. I have found that a genuine Cub Cadet deck drive belt will outlast an "equivalent" MTD belt 2 to 1 or better. I bought my Cub Cadet when my MTD mower locked up just...

    Is there some reading material one could get to "educate" them selves with so one can make a reasonably good choice? A book or some thing?

    If you haven't already request a tracking number and go to the FedEx site for details. You may be able to get helpful details from the delivery notes. Be persistent, sometimes it pays off.

    Quite good but easy to overcook. A bigger snake makes better eating because smaller portions will be overcooked before the crust browns. I don't much care for rat snakes but have a little one (less than 3') under the back porch. I had a big...

    Thanks, Mary. I was able to find the location of the grave of a childhood friend with this site. I'd long thought it was unmarked in a local cemetery.

    One Angel Flight plane is based near here, suspect there are others. I see it from time to time, they do touch & go's at a nearby airport. Very moving video.
