I think that most members can handle this thread, but it only takes two to get this one locked up. Hopefully it will stay open, but when "politics" comes to mind, I don't really think of peaceful exchanges of words...Who knows though, its just my pessimistic opinion😛 Either way, I'm laughing while its still going😅

Before I retired and sold most of the land, I farmed approximately 6500 acres and had about double that in pasture. That's a lot of miles of 4 wire barbed wire to maintain. I think I've used just about every kind of post available - metal T posts, Missouri oak, creasote, penta, and thay all worked pretty good.

They're at their best containing rotted vegetation and doses of manure.

The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"
The lady replied, "I need it to poison my...
