    Interesting read. I can't say that I agree with all of our Presidents choices, I do like a lot of them. I'm glad to see Snap is getting looked at. I think the infrastructure grants are something to look into as well.
  8. Can You Drive A Farm Truck Without A License

    If you're driving it on the road, yes. If you're just driving it in the field, I would think not. For insurance purposes I think you would want to be licensed so you have no issues in case of an accident.

    It's mandatory where I live. I'm in a flood zone area so it's mandatory. We haven't had any problems yet (knock on wood). Our insurance is pretty high because of it.

    It depends on many things. Is the yard level, hilly? Do you have to mow around a lot of things that will slow you down? Is the mower a zero turn?

    Anyone watching the Super Bowl? What do you think so far? I'm a Steelers fan, so I just want to see a great game! So far, it's been pretty good!
  13. Best apps for looking up calories?

    I'm glad I read this one. I've been trying to eat healthier too. I am going to look at those apps too. I also need to find an app to track exercise too.

    How old is the four-wheeler? Have you given it a tune up and the annual maintenance? I've owned many and haven't had a problem with them starting. Do you think it's the gas?

    So it's not working right now? Does the well house have a pump? Is it running? How old does it look? You might have to call a plumber to get some advice.
  19. Age for kids to drive small tractor

    What are your thoughts on your kids driving small machinery to help out? My ten year old has been bugging me to drive the smaller farm tractor (Farmall H). I don't see a problem with it but my workers do. I would of course be right there and teach him.
  20. Pole barn, brick or what?

    We built a block shop too. It's halfway up and then we used boards to frame the rest. We put on a tin roof! It's great!
