10 Banned Foods

These are not new, but as we enter the holiday season when folks are eating more things they don’t “usually” eat, I thought it would be worth a reminder.

Thanks, Tony, for leading the Truth Project series. I’m really enjoying this.

Thanks everyone, that prayed for the sick among us. Paula was stiff this morning when she got up, but we’re continuing the fight. Haven’t heard an update on Gary and his family yet.

Let’s all remember to pray for one another.

Farm Truck

As most of you know by now we did acquire a farm truck this year, which has been very helpful in hauling needed supplies etc.

The truck is in my name, since we don’t have any other entity to put it under; that means it’s also on my insurance, which means that I am the principal driver, and anyone else who uses it must be very, very careful. Also we have established a rule that if you use it, you clean it, and if it breaks while you’re using it, you fix it at your own expense.

4 wheeler gets a new drive gear.

The 4 wheeler striped a drive sprocket from all the firewood hauling we have been doing. It was $17 for a new one and only took me about an hour to change it. Good as new now. Or at least good as it was before.

The old Chevy blew up.

Well another bummer in my great saga of vehicle troubles.

As I posted over on my blog http://greasyburb.blogspot.com , I was on my way to a job in New Jersey when I threw a rod. The odometer was at 226660.4 when it blew. Almost perfect start for a horror movie. In the middle of nowhere in the dark and the truck blowing up.

So now we have to figure out how to get it home. And I really don’t feel it’s time to get a new truck yet. So we will be down to the old worn out minivan for now. Thankfully there is already a farm truck so it’s not like we are stuck with no way to haul feed and what not.

Well, it’s in Gods hands now.

Pickup truck.

We have a lot of kids in our family. 4 to be exact. We currently have a crappy minivan and diesel suburban. Having the truck has been great for towing the camper and hauling lots of stuff inside, however we still have a need for a pickup truck.

I started researching around. I really like the Dodge trucks because they come with the Cummins Motor. Chevy truck supposedly have the best ride on the road. After reading a bunch of reviews on Ford, Chevy, and Dodge, I have my heart set on a 2006 or newer Dodge Mega Cab.

Dodge came out with the Mega Cab in 2006. They shorten the 8ft bed to 6ft 3in and used that extra room to give the back seat 42in of leg room. The thing is perfect for a family our size. The bed is a little smaller then I would prefer, but I think it will be worth the sacrafice for the extra back seat room. There is also over 7 cubic ft of storage behind the back seats. Quite incredible.

So we are saving our money in the new truck fund so that in 2009 we can purchase a 2006. Should be down in an acceptable price range by then. I will try to find one that has all the features I want such as navigation, lift, diesel programmer and so forth. 🙂

This is a good article on it.
