  6. I work at the post office. Dejoy was in office for about 10 minutes and started dismantling mail processing machines. They are still sitting in the parking lots of all the processing plants on our area. Between that and covid and the EEL leave for federal employees it’s not good.

  10. Just got this notice from a bank: "Effective October 1, 2021, the United States Postal Service (USPS) has revised its service standards for certain First-Class Mail items, resulting in a delivery window of up to five days. Please note that this may delay your receipt of mail from us and our receipt of mail from you (including mailed payments). Please take this change into account when mailing items to us via USPS. For more information, visit usps.com.‡" https://about.usps.com/newsroom/statements/080821-usps-moves-forward-with-adjusting-service-standards.htm " After carefully considering the Postal Regulatory Commission’s (PRC) July 20th advisory opinion, the Postal Service plans to move forward with adjusting service standards for First-Class Mail and Periodicals. The PRC concluded that the Postal Service’s proposed changes, in principle, are rational and accord with statutory requirements. The PRC made a number of recommendations for how the Postal Service should implement its changes, which the Postal Service is largely adopting. Additional details will be provided in an upcoming Federal Register notice. A majority of First-Class Mail and Periodicals will keep current service standards, with 70 percent of First-Class Mail volume having a delivery standard of 1-3 days. The service standard changes are part of our balanced and comprehensive Delivering for America Strategic Plan, and will improve service reliability and predictability for customers and enhance the efficiency of the Postal Service network. The service standard changes that we have determined to implement are a necessary step towards achieving our goal of consistently meeting 95 percent service performance." TRANSLATION: We suck so badly that we are dropping our standards so we can say that we are meeting our standards. The USPS is in serious decline. When you hear a progressive talk about how the government needs to run more of our lives, tell them that the check is in the mail.

  11. I have a Trailwagon 200 that I bought for my father in law to use around the farm. It's 2wd and doesn't have a lot of hours on it. I got it for him because the bench seat made it easy for him to get in and out of. Let me know if your interested and I'll get it out off the garage, take some pictures and figure out what you can have it for. The link isn't mine but it has an accurate picture and all the specs. https://www.atv.com/classifieds/2011-american-sport-works-trail-wagon-tw200-4x2-AT1218800EC91.html

    I don't even think about deer hunting until the last week of October. You all can have the hot buggy early season.

    looking for vet

    My father's and brother's dogs each had ACL's done at Quakertown animal hospital in Quakertown, PA. Great place, the ACL doc is a specialist- it's all he does. Half the price of any NJ vet. Sorry, don't have a phone # and can't remember the docs name.

  16. I would say the biggest issue is user error and maintenance. #1 Cracked bolts and nocks cause more blow ups than anything else. Creates a dry fire type situation. You have to inspect every bolt and nock every time they are shot, the extreme force created by xbows allows no forgiveness and actually increases vulnerability. #2 Is the nock not being against the string squarely, even the tiniest gap can lead to the string jumping past the nock/bolt will create the wtf explosion. #3 Is lower cost xbows are lower cost for a reason. You ain’t getting longevity and reliable performance from cast and injection molded parts as you would from machined and forged items

    Salmon River 17-20

    Got back yesterday afternoon from the Salmon River stayed at a new place and it was great. Couple of members were on the trip, Buck154, Deerslayer21 my two boys and a few of their friends. The really hot weather and no rain over the past couple of weeks really has slowed the movement of fish but we still managed to catch some. I should say hooked because our landing ratio sucked. John my sons and I all averaged around 10 hook ups per day but that is horrible for this time of the year. We covered a lot of the DSR each day but the fish never really ran. Deerslayer21 brought up just a few bottles of Homemade Wine [10] which went great with his Lasagna with Meatballs and John’s Venison Stew. Some venison sausage made with parsley and cheese rounded out just some of the meals.

  20. Some people get upset with chicken of woods be advised. If it’s growing on softwoods pass them too incidence is higher. Also some people with some mushrooms are intolerant when used with alcohol. Any wild mushroom must be cooked and injesting is our personal responsibility to be sure it’s safe. Not trying to scare anyone, just don’t get too lax and double check everything. Mushroom expert has keys to help you there are also mushroom clubs you can join to learn. Adam Harrington-Learn your land hes from Pa and does great informational you tube videos, easy to understand. Check them out I personally typically bread and fry them like cutlets. My girl and her daughters favorite mushroom, I like hen of the woods and morels better but chicken a close second

  22. that's a great point. I am surprised how many manufacturers claim "X" FPS and the bow actually shoots 5-15% slower. Sounds like a standards and lack of regulatory oversight issue.

    I'm on the ground. Not going to risk spooking a deer by moving to get a pic or video. Didn't know if she was the only deer in there and kept the xbow in hand pointing where she came out. Was getting too dark under the canopy to use a camera at that point and don't know how to post a video besides rarely ever taking videos. Rather have a good still shot. I'll take a pic when I can.

    Tried tonight for the 1st time. Awesome have to say, cut .25" strips sauteed in butter, garlic, salt and pepper. Very close to sweet potato fries

  34. Not true unless you are using light weight bolts to achieve speed. Also if you want fast and longevity, a quality xbow that is a bit more $$$ will get you there.

    Weather predictions?

    Bring on the cold weather. Tired of this hot weather. One reason I've always like here is we get the hot for fishing and the cold for hunting.

    Acorns

    I live in Zone 3 and there is a bumper crop this year. I have not been seeing any giant bears this year. They are usually in the swamp next to my house eating Skunk Cabbage. But why get their feet wet when they have all of the acorns they want on a dry ridge!
