Strawberry plants

Every year its fun planting our garden digging up and flipping the soil is a part that my son at his age thinks is fun. Wait 'till he gets older he probably won't think that anymore. Three years ago off to one side we planted two small strawberry plants that have now taken up about fifteen square feet of area. We ended up digging this up and planting them all over our property in hopes that we will have thousands of strawberries someday.

Strange weather

It had been seventeen days since we've had  any amount of rainfall. And that was only very little that we had gotten. We'd never had anything like this before in Central New York. We had golf ball size hail hit the ground and explode like miniature bombs. Accompanying this was fifty to sixty mile an hour winds and sheet rain that came so fast that it washed out front of our front yard and part of our backyard. I've been here for fifty years and this has never happened here. People were running for cover people were trying to get their vehicles inside their garages or under cover by driving very fast out of the area.

Online savings

I been putting it off for quite sometime switching over to online banking. After taking a look at the 15 dollar savings a month so I don't have to use stamps it finally convinced me because saving a dollar these days is at least another dollar that you can put towards your car gas bill. If you think about it over years time I'm saving over 200 dollars in stamps and extra gas to drive to the post office.

Polaris seat cover replacement

It does pay so much to shop around these days specially when it comes to Polaris ATV parts. I needed anew seat for my predator I found one online for 79 dollars and then 49 dollars and 38 dollars. All from the same manufacturer. I can't believe the price differences but it sure helped me save 30 dollars.

Wasted money

ATV's are like boats the more money you put in the more money you lose when you go to sell it. I've seen 2004 Polaris predators sell for 1100 dollars I've also seen 2004 Predators sell for 2600 dollars. Some guy on eBay  puts his 2004 predator for sale for over 11,000 dollars showing the list of things that he has put on the bike thinking that he can possibly get that for is ridiculous.

Isuzu Vehi-Cross

New York State is the worst state for vehicles. You have the mud and the snow in the winter which wears your vehicles out so much faster and it doesn't matter how much undercoating they put on. The salt that they put on the roads corrodes the underside so fast. I never buy a car in New York State. I started looking online ,  in Florida. My mom and dad live there so it's always nice to surprise them pulling in with the new vehicle. Every vehicle I've ever owned since the early 80's have always had their oil changes done with synthetic oil. I've had such great luck with this. When it comes to cars with higher mileage the vehicle just seems to keep on going and going. After buying my new Jeep  I also bought a 1999 Isuzu Vehi-Cross that I am having shipped up to New York for surprise for my wife.

A new beginning part one

The year is 1992...the wife left ,the dog died, my truck got hit by a bigger truck and burned to the ground, my warehouse got stuck by lighting and also burned to the ground. I had to file for bankruptcy half way threw it all ,the lawyer died. I lost that money to him. I had to get another lawyer to fight for the lost money from the first lawyer dieing. This set me behind over 10,000 dollars. Keep in mind that one of my closes friends is a minister thank God for him cause I came very close to giving up.The Bible was closed and he was a phone call away. After all of this I'm still here. It took years to recover from this. Amen
