Sorry I haven’t been on for a while. Jakob has been busy finishing his truck in preparation for Argos. Also, we are preparing for another program season.
I have been nursing a bad back. Finally got to a doctor and an MRI. Below you can see the disk bulging into my nerves and making my leg feel like it’s in a vice and on fire, being stabbed with knives, and hit with several hammers. (Not to over state anything)
Also a cabbage and peas I got to pick this morning as I was able to get out of bed today. first time in quite a while. We got 5 gallons of snow peas and about 7 gallons of sugar snaps.
Lots and lots of pain. And side effects from the drugs. Not much fun. May 15th I have an appointment to get a steroid injection in my spine. That sounds fun…but anything at this point to take away the pain would be welcome. Still hoping to make Argos. Appreciate prayers.
Gardens are doing quite well too.
Also, we did a clean-out of a maintenance room of a shopping mall over in Atlanta a couple weeks ago. Ended up with a bunch of stuff I need to sell. There are 4 electric motors. The small one is brand new in the box. The others are believed to be rebuilt spares for the machine/chiller room. One of them still has the tag on it from the re-builder. The mall is doing a complete remodel and wanted to clear it all out. We found it on Craigslist. Also got an electric man lift that works, a truck load of ceramic tile, a hundred gallons of good paint, a big steel/pipe pile, and a whole bunch of scrap refrigerant. I didn’t realize that R-11 would bring $8.00/lb.
Also, there are a couple of big valves, and some oils. Especially 2 new 5-gallon buckets of synthetic Mobil as shown.
Anyway, if anyone is interested in any of these motors, I don’t need to get rich off of them. I just need to pay for back treatment. LOL. I don’t have any prices figured out. If you are interested, let’s talk. I think they are 1.5 hp, 25 hp, 40 hp, and 125 hp 3 phase respectively. The green valve is new. The 8" valve is not. The refrigeration oil is about half full.
Also, Koen, I see ya’ll have a new king. Congradulations,…I guess.
