    Is that your grandmom? Mine probably wore an apron, but she died when I was about 3. Can't hardly remember her. I think my mother may have worn one on occasion, but if so, it wasn't enough to leave a lasting image.

    Last two days have been busy. Spent the second half of the day on the stream restoration job I hate. One of the guys went through, dropped a bunch of trees, and left terrible stumps. Makes me feel better about my work :^D The dirt foreman on the first job said he had a maple he wanted pruned up. Thinking about taking a look at it, and giving it a shot. I'm a little leery of doing someone else's good trees though. I didn't jump at the chance, but I might talk to him later about it. I wouldn't charge him anything significant. I've known him forever, and would just do it like I would for any friend, but it could help get my name out there for more opportunities.

    Not specifically Goodwill, but thrift shops and flea markets. I get the occasional stuff from Goodwill, but they don't usually have much I'm interested in, and the one closest to me is kind of expensive.

    All the shoes I buy for myself are used. The only time I get new shoes is when they're a gift. Or I guess NOS shoes. I've gotten a few pair of those.

    Nice looking piece of wood. I've been using rm2 chain @ 10°. Started at the stock 30°, and brought it back as I sharpened. I'm pretty happy with the performance, but I haven't used anything else. I got 200' for $440. I'll take old Stihl green chain over anything Oregon makes any day.

    Screwed up milling some ash boards today. Made a few mistakes, but that's why I'm doing it. Practice so I do a good job on the oak later this year. Got my oiler almost perfect. I was looking in the hardware store for some kind of valve. Picked up a brass needle valve, but wasn't feeling too good about it. Settled on that, but made a quick trip through the rest of the store to see if anything was better. Ended up getting a plastic fuel cutoff. That works great for my purposes, and I saved a couple bucks.

    Definitely talented. About 12? Take 4 years off for simply learning how to talk, that gives her 8 years of singing. Amazing accomplishment in that short amount of time.

    Staked a swale at work, and that only took a couple hours. Went home, made the stupid grass shorter, and staked my rear property line. I have a couple poplars growing back there, and I wanted to be sure they were on my property before taking one or more of them down, They're all on me, so I'll get rid of them when I take the spruce down.

    Clumping cat litter. Cats Pride is made by the Oil-Dri company. I'm guessing it was originally made for oil, and someone thought it would be a good idea for cats.

    Knowledge was certainly hard won back in the day, especially if you were going it alone. I spent lots of time in used book stores looking for things of interest. Made it more special when you found it too. The internet is practical, but something got lost on the way. I'd say it's a net benefit, but it isn't all sunshine and flowers.

    I've spent some time lurking on AS as well as treebuzz. I'm a member at forestryforum. I'm picky about where I sign up for places. Forestyforum's focus is more on milling, and wood business. Good group of guys, with a lot of general life experience getting stuff done, but not so much the art of tree work. That's why I signed up here.

    Searching the title after seeing a reference somewhere else. There's a good chance that's how I landed here. edit: That can go both ways also. I might have had the book, and wanted to know what people were saying about it. Hard to say. I've been all over the web looking for information related to tree work.

    Good video. I liked seeing the square in action. I've read about it, but never seen it in use.

    I didn't use it for a long while after discovering it cause I couldn't make sense of tying it. I'd look at the diagram, and think "WTF?!", and put it aside. I eventually ran into the "69" diagram, and it all clicked. Very easy to tie, and hard to tie wrong. I like easy knots, especially when there's consequences to tying wrong. I want to be able to just tie it, and not stand there thinking "hmm...".

    lxskllr replied to a thread saw gas deteriorating in Chainsaws!
    I had a lawn tractor and a PoulanPro die giving them real gas after using corn fuel for years. Might have been a coincidence, but the timing was interesting. Couldn't begin to explain what might have happened. Assuming it was fuel related, my best guess is the real gas loosened some crud, and caused the issues, but it's only a guess.

    New member count has been idling for over a week I think. I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to post a notification above the board stating the signup process? People might not see this announcement, and just give up after not being able to get in, and unaware of what it takes to sign up. Maybe make it dismissible so it can be uncluttered for people that already know.
