Anyone can bust the beads on tires, pound out and weld up mangled up sheet metal and winch up broke dick trucks. Close with and destroy the enemy is an entirely different thing. In the rear with the gear was basically where I was at. It wasn't until years later that I realized that the rhythmic thumping of artillery and carpet bombing were something that I shouldn't have been happy to hear. I heard and felt the thumping, thinking that we were kicking butt,never thought about who was on the receiving end.
Walking into a gas station to pay and have to wait for the person in front of you to check their non winning lottery tickets or buy a ticket and scratch it at counter and win enough to buy another ticket to scratch at counter as you wait
I guess the development companies and general house contractors must be getting in on the last run before the death spiral here in Soo Foo metro because the boys have been building like crazy this year (and the rest of the last few years). Then again, Soo Foo area got a good number of covid & big blue state reg refugees during Fauci's reign and many of those people are buying new houses in cash after dumping theirs in an even pricier area.
The development company opened up "Phase II" up the hill behind us in 2015 with 80 blanks. I sort of laughed at that number for the area but I suspect its now about 65-70% of those built, not a single one under $400k, most north of there a ways. Now they're opening another 35-40 blanks kitty corner to the southwest on more of the farmland. Maybe its all just musical chairs, who gets holding the over priced bag when the music stops...
Since it is a Ford, you may consider using Ford diesel fuel conditioner. It has extra lubricants for the fuel system and cetane booster. It might help you get your 20 mpg.
In June of 2019, got my new F-350 diesel Crewcab shortbed Lariat Ultimate. It has 16,000 miles and the mpg is still improving. I put on a fiberglass cap which hides tools and gear, plus it controls that turbulent sailboat fuel that reduces mpg.
Steady gas prices through this weekend are definitive proof of price fixing. They claimed increased demand was a driving force for increased price. You can't tell me there isn't increased demand this weekend, yet prices have stayed the same.
Yep, I am still alive. I toughed thru the heart problems and escaped from the hospital. They planned no additional tests or procedures so not much point being there. The cardiologist scheduled an appointment for August - no real time issue here. So I am looking for a new cardiologist. Thanks for your prayers!
Back to oil. Nobody wants to see $380 oil. Nobody wanted to see oil top $200 during the Obammy administration. But it did.
About a year ago, some investors were buying in on oil contracts at $200 for 12/22. They may cash in?
Before $380, everything else will be on the rocks. There will be economic and societal breakdown.
There is still plenty of capacity in the oil shale region of Ohio. About 3 miles from my home a rig is drilling. The new site pad will support 8 wells. A second pad can be added for another 8 wells.
I also believe that speculators will exit the market way before we reach that price level. The risk far outweighs the potential reward. It would be far too likely for government to step in and essentially nationalize the oil industry for "national security" reasons. No investor or speculator wants to be holding the bag at that point.
As White says above at some point, the Feds would nationalize the petroleum industry. Wouldnít that be a hoot! The devil would be in the oil patch for sure then!
I am 60 yes old and take 2 packs of gel every morning 1 rubbed in each shoulder. Been doing this for 4 years and it really helps on your energy for all aspects of life, it takes about 10 days to kick in.
She'll lose in Nov, then Biden will give her a job doing something.
Lizzy seems to be taking advantage of the anti trump crowd and has a misconception she would get the republican nod from the anti trumpers if she raises enough heck now. She wont get 2 percent of the primary vote. Shes a highly unlikable bi$?%.
