Good luck!
Unreal money. Unfortunately apparently so backwards in Saskatchewan we can’t enter those sports 50/50 which isn’t right we don’t have an nhl team so we should be able to enter either Alberta or Manitoba lottos. Where the hell is trump when you need him he’d find a crooked but maybe legal likely not way to do it. Lol Reply With Quote
Aug 7, 2020 | 19:11 3 Better chance at winning this than $12-13 canola. Reply With Quote

Oh for sure. Unless someone wants to pay that for my volunteer stuff in the flower bed.

There’s lots there but I don’t think it’s in the same realm even if it was $13. Reply With Quote

I guess I must have won the mini lottery then and maybe the plus too, I priced two loads of Specialty canola at $13.52 for next July. Pretty darn good chance it will be picked up before then too.

BUT, we got to combine some peas today that saw a bit of hail this morning about 4 a.m.
Let's just say peas on soil class "M" in a droughty year is sucking.... Ghetto farmimng LEP, Ghetto farming.....

Edit in, good thing that is only 80 acres of "M" soil, another quarter isn't classified too much better and the rest improves from there..... it is what it is.

    Ah. Farmaholic, there's more than one ghetto in this province. When you put your foot on the side window of the cab when cutting lentils in the hills call me. Reply With Quote

    We are B to E here
    That means you are either too dry or to wet
    And those two extremes can be only a week apart lol Reply With Quote
    Aug 8, 2020 | 11:01 9 So now that oilers are out is there still 50/50 on other games or is it exclusive to the oilers? Reply With Quote
    Blaithin's Avatar Aug 8, 2020 | 11:17 10 AFAIK there’s 50/50 on all games. For whatever reason Calgary’s pot has stayed lower. Maybe it’ll go up now.

    Don’t know who’s allowed to enter though.

    It’s amused me that Alberta is so hard done by and in a recession but we’re so ever hopeful we can spend 24.5 million in a week on 50/50 tickets. Reply With Quote

    Do you have any idea how many Canadian's retirement plan is based on winning the lottery ! ???
    Likely close to 50% as stats say half of Canadians can't miss 1 paycheck.
    Those of us who have saved, will be financially r@ped over the coming years. Makes me wonder why I even bothered to be financially prudent and responsible. In the coming years, it'll be me, that will be considered stupid, for not enjoying my money when I earned it, and while I had it! Reply With Quote

    But you can change that today by spending it on things that would make life more enjoyable...don't look back with regrets...

    Help the economy....spend your money or someone else will...

    I am always amused that people leave inheritances only for those that don't have phuck all waste it like a drunken sailor...

    How many young guys have depreciated grandpa's money on paint? Reply With Quote
    Aug 8, 2020 | 12:44 13 U got that right bucket. Farmers wonder why paint is so much money. Who in their right mind takes out a mortgage on steel for 7-10 years and expects there to be something left for them in the end. Plain stupidity. Land I can understand but new steel, u just end up broke and busted. Reply With Quote

    I feel the same, we who saved all their lives and lived within our means will be paying for the mistakes for all those who never thought about putting money away, investing, etc. Its all going to be taxed away. Reply With Quote

    What gets me is that these very same people getting Covid cash and going right out and buying RV’s , new trucks cars and all kinds of high depreciation stuff . Yet will be hard pressed to make payments once the “free” money stops ..... its almost guaranteed to happen .. Reply With Quote

    Probably someone from Quebec got an Albertan friend to buy him tickets and will win.....

    Just another transfer payment to La Belle province. Reply With Quote
