If you know me at all, you likely know that I would add “old” to “good” books in the 1941 Burton Lane/Ralph Freed line above. I like old stuff including old books, of which I have a diverse collection.

If the work is done and the day still young, a ride through the back roads in an antique truck is often in order. Since my work truck is only months short of being 50 years old, the antique factor is already built in. All that’s needed is some time, gasoline, curiosity and a camera.

Please bear with me. After thinking up a clever title for the March/April Tech Tips column in Antique Power, I’m all “titled out.” The above was one of the first to be rejected. The article is about using spent shotgun shells to plug off dirt sensitive lines and fittings while a tractor bein…

The North River Mills shop has virtually no heat and plenty of ventilation. Years ago, someone must have found themselves in a situation similar to mine as there is evidence of newspapers having been put up on the west wall to block the wind. An open lean-to protects this wall from rain and …

The shortage of natural pollinators, such as bees, is threatening global food production around the world, making it difficult to feed an ever-growing human population. Researchers at West Virginia University have come up with a plan B to this decline in pollinators by creating a robotic pol…

I have virtually no experience in the beef cattle business. There, I feel better having finally made that confession. In addition, I have only 1 (one) tractor repair customer who is a full-time cattle farmer and not retired from some secret branch of the federal government. Of course, all of…

It was around 6:30 a.m. and I had just dropped off the Old Hippie school bus driver at her bus in Capon Bridge. It was raining an uninspiring rain; Neither the fury of summer thunder nor the deep, contemplative state inspired by a winter ice storm.

Ah, November. A bright moon in the boughs of leafless trees, a single chill raindrop on the cheek, soft amber glow of distant windows, wood smoke in the silver gray dawn, red glow in the western sky from a Midwest afternoon, survival of the Old Hippie’s orchard day. That’s right — Saturday, …

As many readers already know, I’m an advocate for the preservation and use of old cars, trucks and other machinery. The ‘70s, when the Old Hippie (aka, wife Stephanie) and I were first married, was our golden age of economical, carefree driving; we drove ‘50s trucks. The trucks were designed…
