I knew this was just a matter of time. Kind of makes the saying on the coat of arms ring a little hollow. [quote]State Sen. Hank Sanders, D-Selma, told AL.com on Wednesday he wants the flag removed from the symbol. The state coat of arms features a shield with five flags that represent the fi...

Cutting wheat yesterday and ran a hen turkey off a nest. The draper head went right over the nest without breaking a single egg. The nest has 12 eggs in it. This morning I went back to the field to put a flag by the nest so my planter guy wouldn't run over it. I was curious if the hen would still s...View Topic - Replies (4)

I made a rough version of a bee trap I had seen recently and hung it in one of our old sheds. This was a shed my grandfather buit in the late 50's.

Anybody have any experience with the Bayou Classic Fryer? Local CO-OP has one for $250 out the door. Looks like it is really well made. Don't really understand how it says the cool oil stays at the bottom so it doesn't scorch the crumbs off of what you are frying. Seems like all of the oil would hav...View Topic - Replies (5)
