    My mother had two feeders on a second story balcony off the bedroom of their Pocono home. I saw a dozen of them swooping around one afternoon. It was really fun to watch.

    Nice! :thumbsup:

    I played a lot of CoD when I was in Asskrackistan in 2008/9, on a 15" Sony Vaio, but haven't really played anything since (I was 44ish at the time).

    The golf video above shows a projector/strike resistant screen system (similar to what's in our pro shop), but that's currently out of my budget and garage space. My home setup uses a net and wall mounted monitor. My daughter and I played Pinehurst #2 on Saturday night.

    I bought the launch monitor and net last year, but recently added the TGC Game software, giving me access to thousands of digital courses.

    My next task is conning the wife into letting me move it into the basement, so I can have that bay of my garage back.

    EDIT: this is the system I own.

    I played off and on for several years, but when my daughter started playing, it gave me an excuse to to go "all in".

    Yes, I told my wife the simulator was for the kids... :anonymous:

    @Pchop

    So this is why I have a pretty good handle on the game. I've played for 173 hrs in the game. Or 7days 5hrs and 24 mins

    This is one of the Prime frames I was working on in the foundry. I’ve got 2 more working now.

    It's been a while since i've dealt with a car dealer and having a vehicle serviced. 2 weeks ago i found some oil drops under the wifes 2017 CR-V. It was due for an oil changed so i checked everything out. The Oil was full of Gas and was being forced out the oil pan gasket. There is a recall for this exact issue so we got an appointment and it's in the dealer today. They come back to me and say it needs some other services while it's in there. They want to change the rear diff ($130), wheel alignment ($140), and rotate the tires ($80). They say all are standard 15k services. Since when do i need an alignment every 15k? WTF! $140 is high for an allignment, but not out of the ball park. $80 to rotate the tires? FUCK YOU!. That is highway robbery.

    Once they get used to you having a feeder up they keep coming back. I think I read somewhere for every 1 you count there are 7 actually there. Its about right since they can drain a big 16oz container I have in the spring/summer, not including the 2 I have out front of the house.

    You can get a lifetime alignment for for a little more than what they are charging you at like tires plus or tire kingdom.. If you plan on keeping the vehicle awhile a lifetime is the way to go. On my vehicles I have it done every 5k and change the oil myself and rotate the tires at 5k also.

    I do all my own maintenance. it just thought it was ridiculous that they wanted $80 for a less than 5 minute thing. They already have the vehicle on the lift.

    When we get new tires, i'll get the lifetime balance and rotation on them and it will only cost me $20 or so for that.
