This is the program he is volunteering for on a farmer to farmer exchange for small ruminants and economic development through value-added products like soap making. Part of his duties now and for the next two years include a $2 million pilot goat dairy newly built by USAID and the Guatemalan government.

I was talking to the owner of that blue one regarding the yoke, he said at first it took him a couple days to get used to it and now he says he loves it, the turn is unbelievable. Wish I could upload this short 12 sec video here on the red one, pictures do not justify what this machine looks like in person.

I assume you are aware that Teslas are the least reliable evs out there.

Hmmm, I will give you my own experience.
Bought 2018, spent I guess $100 in air cabin filters and windshield fluid.

Drove to Mount Washington a couple times, DC like 4 times, SC once, drove in the tri-state area so many times, the list goes on…..ZERO issues, I must me lucky!!

Here's a link to one of the articles about the issues with Model 3 in particular. Mostly it's problems with paint, body hardware, etc. Still, if Musk comes out with the $25,000 ev he keeps promising, I'll go for it!

Outside of recession or worldwide pandemic the last time gas was less than $2/gal was 2004.

My wife tells me she bought gas at Costco for about $1.89 (if memory serves well but she says it is actually less maybe around $1.60) at the end of 2020.

I think she is correct because in October 2020 I bought home heating oil at merely $1.37/gal and in May 2020 at $1.12/gal. And this data is from my Excel spreadsheet I keep handy.

Varis,

The graphic I posted was a national US average by year and not a Costco (CT) average by month.

Got that, but you stated "the last time gas was less than $2/gal was 2004".

If you take your graphic as an example, it clearly shows 2020 dipping below $2, unless I need to get better magnifying glasses :p

Still misleading Mike. Some folks keep claining today's wild and crazy gas prices are due to pandemic, when in reality pandemic really hit every country right in 2020 and look at gas prices in 2020. Those are facts.

Now, let's get the thread back to its topic and post a picture about egg prices.....that may bring a lot of faces :slp
