    Maybe Tim -

    I'm thinking about moving to North Carolina when I retire. Nothing left around here but arogant Yuppies that think planting a garden means putting in a rose bush!

    Bill -

    I was looking somewhere between Ashville and Greensboro. Although it sounds like Ashville is getting to big these days. Looking for some quiet area where I can rasie a few critters and some maybe a few rabbits and have a nice little garden, rock on the front porch and play my banjo in peace.

    Thank you PC -

    But I might need a trade in by then. I want some ground to play in, criters to roam real meat to smoke. I have about out planted my 1/4 lot. I've planted 11 dwarf fruit trees, blueberries, strawberries, grapes, hops, and have 1 raised beds for veggies (alot of ledge here). I got so much yard planted I have to cut the grass with a weed wacker! LOL

    They were re-roofing the hospital at work and used the wrong foam. It supposed to be blue foam for a roof. I mentioned it to the project manager and they had to tear it all off. I just happened by just before they finished and asked if I could have some (they were breaking it up and tossing it in the trash. The man said yes so I drove home grabed my Dakota and filled it to the roof! Got 25 sheets! 4 x 8.

    Made a great cellar window insulation last winter and several wheeled portable keg/bars this summer!

    Did I menton I'm a scronger?

    I was always more into surface to surface. You know, nothing big like a scud, just something small that a fella could carry around in the back of his truck if he wanted. :lol: :lol:

    If you really do want a "big ass piece of styrofoam", you can pick it up from your local dock builder.

  11. Have to say..."Nothin could be finer than to live in 'Carolina " :D :D ! Even though this state is growing RAPIDLY and the farmland is getting expensive, it is a great place to live. We have 3.5 acres ( with 7 cats and 1 dog) right on a highway and we may see 20-40 vehicles a day when shifts change and school is in/out :D :D :D ! Love it! We are 30-45 mins from 3 major cities but 3 weeks ago we had a 6-point buck walking casually down the middle of the road at lunchtime before venturing off into the woods across the street! Glad the hubby was home for a witness :D !

    Here we are over a week and a half since the ice storm started, and there's still a skating rink between Betsy and me. I got her fired up, but the more the ice melts, the slicker it gets. Maybe if i keep 'er fired up for a day or two, I'll be able to get around in front of her and put some meat on.
