I did a little research a couple of days ago while browsing this thread, and that makes a lot of sense.

I initially came across a source which claimed the distinction was that Irish Setter was the Chinese-made line. But on further investigation, many boots in the Red Wing brand are also now being made in China, with a mix of Chinese and US-sourced material. They do seem to still have manufacturing facilities in both countries, but it's hard to tell which boots are made where.

This seems to be further supported by Red Wing's Transparency in Supply Chains Act Disclosure, which yields some vague information concerning its participation in slavery and human trafficking throughout the supply chain:

My lathe has a noticeable drop in power the last few months. My immediate thought was the run capacitor is going bad, then I never thought about it again, until today.

I had to take the back cover off for other reasons and found the likely cause of my low power output and increased heat coming from the motor.

Its a ******* electrolytic... for a run cap?



If you cant tell, the brown strip at the top is the paper, the cap has vented itself.

It seems to me that the cows in question are adult cows. If that is the case, then why are we providing them a "typical dairy ration"? Adult cows don't drink milk. That's a calf thing to do.

If the "typical dairy ration" in question is the feed provided to the dairy cow to produce the milk, then the quoted sentence, by itself, is out of context. The correct text should state either "a typical feed ration", or probably more accurately, "a typical DAILY ration". Perhaps the editor of this piece is a nitwit.

In the context of being a cattle farmer, a "dairy ration" is understood to mean the feed supplied to a milk-producing dairy cow. This would be as opposed to the feed supplied to a cow bred for beef.

Only a small fraction of the beef supply in the US comes from dairy cows which are culled after they become unsuitable for milk production. The rest are bred specifically for beef production. The two have different dietary requirements.


I may be a city boy, but I grew up in the country.

Finally got the first offer from insurance on my totaled Cherokee.

Let's just say that it's less than i could buy ANY reliable vehicle for, that you couldn't touch even a shitty running XJ Cherokee for, let alone the Cherokee that was totaled.

Where the **** do these idiots get their numbers?

The only one that i've been able to find in my same configuration for sale in the US is $7200. It has less miles, but is in shittier condition than mine.

The average price of ANY 2dr 4x4 facelift XJ Cherokee across the US is over $5000, regardless of transmission.

The offer was significantly less than $2000.

Time to **** down someone's throat.

My Miata seems to have been in a bad mood last night.

I've had this thing for 4 years, and other than a failed alternator a couple of years ago, has been completely reliable - as in, turn key, go, no stumbles or hiccups - in that time. Last night, I got into it where I'd parked it earlier in the day in my indoor garage, and it cranked but wouldn't start. After some pointless poking under the hood, I realized that I wasn't getting any joy on the dash when the key was in Run. Ok, I figured, maybe faulty ignition switch or connection to it. Wiggle-jiggled the key for a bit, and still no love. Fiddled with the 1990's era alarm that was probably installed when the car was new, and that just woke up the neighbours.

Finally, out of desperation, I quickly reached up under the dash into the rat's nest of wires that lives up there, and all of a sudden, the dash lit up. Car started and drove perfectly. A rational human would conclude that there's a loose connection in there somewhere, so I thanked my lucky stars it ran well enough to go pick up my girlfriend, and figured I had some work to do. Once safely back home, I poked, prodded, and grabbed at wires as much as I could without doing real work and disassembling anything, and couldn't reproduce the problem. Went out again this morning armed with a flashlight, and other than a clipped-and-taped wire that was probably part of the alarm install, nothing seems askew. I can't reproduce the problem.

Do I pretend that the car healed itself, or start pulling things apart in fears that the car will leave me stranded and crying sometime in the future?

IMHO, it's time for a complete alarm-ectomy.

It's not merely going to leave you stranded, it's going to shut off completely as you're driving up a steep hill in heavy traffic.

Neti Pot is a good tool for flushing bad things out of the sinuses.

Unrelated : 10:29am on a holiday weekend at the lake. Time for a Beefeater and tonic.

It's also a good way to let brain-eating amoeba get at your gray matter if you're not careful with the water you use.

I use the squeeze bottle version. It is a godsend on the mornings I wake up and can't breathe through my nose.

This stuff is too convenient to make messing around with a neti pot worth it.

No idea, but one bottle lasted me through two sinus infections, if that gives you any reference.

I used to have a sinus infection problem.
Right side maxillary cavity was blocked shut and would not respond to treatment.

I decided to use brute force and went to the Mediterranean coast to dive.

After a series of quick dives to varying depths, the crackling started. Pressure difference did the trick.
I came out of the water on the second day, and suddenly I felt like my whole head was emptying out.
The relief was beyond words.
The world was at peace within moments, and I could hear birds chirping in the distance.

Never had a problem since.
