 I actually agree, it's just with all the gloom and doom that the msm puts out, be it concerning Trump, terrorism, the economy, rt. now Jung-Un, sometimes any little ray of light or hope in the "news" is a relief. Last night I was cleaning my .40 BHP in my back bedroom which is my "cave", with the tv on in the living room when i heard Hannity announce Wayne La Pierre coming on, so I stopped and went and listened. Not any news really, but good to see La Pierre, so I went back to finish cleaning the BHP. My mother used to say "we don't know how lucky we are." Being the following generation I'll amend it to "we don't spend enough time acknowledging how lucky we are." Again, I agree with you about being wary, the "pundits" have a spin as do the networks and some of what both advance is for a paycheck, a name or ratings. But I do enjoy hearing or reading news in which the "good" guys seem to have won, it's almost rare these days.
 By the way, thank's to DT, sometimes the ability and chance to "unload", makes all of the difference.

Turns out they are pretty nice. 

Those that I have are really good - the Japanese do some pretty flash joinery

I do take care of my tools, so that is good to know thank you.  As I am not a wood worker by trade I would appreciate any help, thank you.

I can probably get you some information late Monday, although a Google search should yield some decent results. Taken care of properly, that Irwin should last a few years at least.

It's not the tractor compacting the ground.  It was grazing cattle on it since it was cleared around 1900.  The place was only briefly in row crops in the early 70's and we lost our asses.  A large proportion is way too wet, we're talking standing water wet, for 3-5 months every year.  The area where my garden is was plowed for corn for feed, that was with a team of mules until the early 60's.  After that, it was used as either a feed lot or as a place to keep horses.  Last 10 years or so, it has just been cut for hay.

The only place the tractor has compacted the ground is in front of the barn where it goes in and out.  And that's because I have never dropped a disc there.  Even the roads get more traffic from pick up trucks than they do from farm equipment.  If you want to plant a vehicle, drive it across a field that has been disced or plowed on a regular basis that has been allowed to grow back in grass, right after a rain.  It takes years for the soil to settle.

I keep hearing that farm equipment compacts the soil.  That hasn't been true in my experience.  Unless you are talking no till farming methods, which I haven't used.  I do know the farmers who no till run subsoilers to aerate the soil every so often so it will allow water to be absorbed and hold it better.

If you want to compact the soil, run fairly large herds of cattle on small fields for a while.  Ground will get hard as a brick.

Keep in mind while reading all the news.

It's propaganda. 

The facts may or may not all be there, the story is going to be written to favor someone's point of view and push their narrative.  That's why there is a comparison to another story in the second or third para and usually the same in the last or next to the last para.

Every time I read a story, I always wonder what they are leaving out.  That's why I try to cross reference. 

Cross reference the BBC for the same story, it sometimes has a lot of info that the US papers leave out.  That is, provided the Brits print anything about it, we print lots of stories that are national news here, that foreign news considers local or just fads.

I have been using a cheap as heck Japanese style wood saw of late.  I got it when on a road trip to open a wooden crate.  It was the only thing to be had at the time.  Darn thing works.  I thought that they were more or less a fad and mostly hype.  Turns out they are pretty nice.  I can get a good accurate cut - better than I can get with the European style saws I have used prior.  Mine has a fine cut and a rough cut tooth pattern (one on each side) Which is nice and it seems to be holding up well.  As nice as this is I can't help but wonder what a good quality one is like

I am trying to find a good one in a small size for my camping/crafting kit now.

My mom was a terror on her cart. Couldn't see to well but slow is not a family trait.

This has been the hardest thing I have ever done but it is all worth it.

Today was the first day Edith felt like going anywhere. She wanted to go to the store and ride around on one of the electric carts. She had jun and only ran over a couple of the dispkays. There is a learning curve to driving one of those.
