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.
