I forget the exact amount of water (gallons) it takes to water a half acre to achieve 1 inch of rain

What, like we need a reason to enjoy frozen sugar-water? Besides, they come in such swell flavors

I need help figuring out water too> How many gallons of water Do I need to fill a gallon jug and how many gallons jugs do I need to fill a 5 gallon bucket. Why does my 5 gallon gas can hold more than 5 gallons water?

I just like the product's name. Much more fun than the Fla-Vor-Ice that's sold in the East (same company owns them both) ~ I buy them late in the year, when they wind up in clearance sales. Even though they tout their now containing genuine fruit juice, they taste just as sickly sweet as ever.

Is a pound of feathers heavier than a pound of lead? (I'd say Gold, but gold is measured in troy ounces instead of imperial ounces, so a pound of feathers is heavier than a pound of Gold :) )

"NO" a pound of freather is hevier. If you drop a pound of feathers and a pound of lead the lead will fall faster. feathers float slowly to the ground.
DUH. what are you blonde?

As I read the end of this thread I have to realize that the "usual suspects" are not the ones that started it down this road. Jim started it! Next thing you know stagnant pressure will pop its ugly head up too. :laugh:

"Off season"??? What's that??? Remember... I have job security. This is when we have a lot of main line leaks finally get recognized because the systems are down right now. Have two more (4" and 6") scheduled for end of the week. :)

I can kiss my off season free time goodbye next Monday...

You guys won't be seeing much of me anymore with the new job, but I'll try to pop in and talk about stagnant pressure as often as I can.

That explains it. You posted in the Off Topic Forum and the only thing I "read" there is the Calendar Girls thread.

Good luck Jon. Hopefully you kept my cell number as I'll be up in WA around the end of May.

I feel sorry for your old boss! You sound like someone who will be tough to replace. Best of luck. Give me a call if you get to the island; I'll get the beers.

Thats not true, you read the jokes thread too :)

Thanks, I'm going to need all the good luck I can get, its a huge change for me.

My boss is pretty sad, but he knew this day would come. I chose the slowest time of year to leave, and I've been training a #2 guy for the last year. We did a service call today and I let him do the trick stuff (Backflow relocation) and he did ok...Its going to be a rough change for him too :)

Send me a PM with your cell Russ.

Are you sure you're not doing this just to be closer to the 'Hawks (maybe next year... sigh)? Does this new job come with season tix? Always enjoy your posts, good luck with everything (if you get multiple season tix, I'd be more than happy to take the ferry over on a Sunday...):)

With the new jobs salary, affording season tix won't be an issue :)

Of course, thats if it all works out. This company is promising a 20k a year raise after 90 days if all is good :) :)

I'm not a programmer... just a "dirty fingernail" kind of guy with some computer knowledge. If all goes well I'll be taking early retirement this spring and moving to central WA. I'll have to do something when I get up there and not sure if I'll stay in the green industry or not. I've been thinking about becoming a Wal-Mart greeter. :)
