    I've been playing around at the river near my house destroying beaver dams and relocating beavers to help in flood control. We first saw these guys in the Spring and now see them almost every day we go out. We have found what we believe to be their nest and the DNR is going to verify it in February during their survey. If it is a nest it will be the first one in this county since 1890. These pictures were taken in Gary, IN about three blocks South of I-94. I was within 30 yards of them. Not something you'd expect to see in an urban area. There are also a couple of juveniles in the area.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

    One of the many birds we do "NOT" have here in the Islands...I guess it's to far for them to fly. Very nice. I remember visiting Alaska and seeing them all over....the nests are so large as well.

        Great Pics - They are fun to watch. One cold winter day, we found a bunch playing on the Mississippi River. They were hitching a ride on the ice chunk and floating down river. They would then fly back and find another ride.

                So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                I like the fact...

                Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....

                Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.

                Two great customer service stories on this forum in a week. There is hope. Even in 2020.
