At work, we run a current onto all of the wharf piles (steel surrounded concrete) to stop them from rusting, in their sea water environment. Preventitive electrolysis. We used to have a similar setup in AT&T for some of our underground diesel fuel tanks. Here in the US it is called cathodic protect...

For me a wood chipper will do. I want the least spent on me and the most spent on the party.

Oops! Almost forgot about poorman's stump rot. A few cans of Draino plumbing crystals (lye). A bit toxic, but effective.

If you can get hold of a couple of bags of mesquite chips and keep them burning in the stump for a few days, that should do the trick. Mesquite burns very hot.

Rudy, you are a lot better off (by a lot!) with your bus. Back in the mid '90s, my in-laws had a Holiday Rambler 5th wheel (actually 2 of 'em, a 36 foot and a 30 foot). The materials used in them are the cheapest and most light weight imaginable. I remember the plumbing looked like soda straws. Ever...

From my point of view (I really hope I'm wrong on this one) the bird die off might just be the canary in the cave. For the most part, birds are the most sensitive and reactive to their environment. Red winged black birds have notorious terrible eyesight, roost in groups sometimes in the thousands an...

Carin and I have an aviary (we've raised many of these little guys) and from what I see, this is a picture of about a three week old African grey parrot. By the way, there are 3 sub species of this bird.

2-cycle DD's came in three sizes and two flavors available in over the road vehicles. They came in three sizes, the -53 series, the -71 series, and the -92 series. The number refers to the cubic inches of each cylinder. They came in two configurations, inline and 'V' type. If the designator had a '...
