 Pointless yet feel the need to bitch

In Iowa, I apparently run a summer resort for barn swallows. I don't mind since they eat lots of bugs which is really nice. It's also a hoot to watch the crown of 10-20 birds swoop around my deck in the evenings. My complaint is the nests above my doors. My back door has a huge pile of swallow poo in front of it. It rained yesterday and now it's a wet, rotting mush pile that really smells.

It's so foul that I'd like to package it and ship it to a former boss. Yucky! It's raining again today. I expect it will smell worse. This comes after 4 days of not using my fenced area because one of the babies didn't feel like flying. So it just sat on the ground and waited for mom and dad to feed it. My one dog is an idiot and wouldn't care. The other dog is psychotic about killing things. So I kept them out. Sigh...

Pointless, completely pointless.

I had a similar problem with a thistle feeder. It was hung on a bracket clamped to the handrail over the deck so when the birds perched on it for a bit they, you know, right on the deck. The bracket was such that it couldn't be turned so the feeder hung over the lawn. After a few attempts, the best solution was a 18" square of plywood clamped so it was underneath the feeder. Now and again I remove the square and hose it off. I wonder if you can do something similar under the nests over your doors?

iowafun - After reading your other thread title "WTF" I nedd to tell you that i used to be the biggest deere fan. I had nothing but problems with the people of deere also as you mentioned. On the top of the screen on thi site click on search & type in jd 790 fel bucket dropping & read it. I changed over to Kubota simply because JD people just dont seem to care.

Grasgod, I was just completely frustrated by the situation. I'm finishing up a Masters Degree this fall so I just don't have much extra time. So when I lost the available time, I was pretty mad. I finally got the tractor last night. It's missing the light kit option, but they'll come out to my place to install that when it arrives. It's also missing the weight bucket for the rear. I can deal with that as I have a box blade for counterweight. I'm very happy with the tractor once it showed up. Extremely happy. It's a mowing machine!!

I'm one of those people that expects a certain minimum level of competance from people who have jobs. I've been working for pay since I was 14 and I know how to take care of customers both internal and external. It's really not that difficult.If you do your business right, you can sell 50 utility tractors for every combine you sell. You can make more profit and more importantly, you have 50x the opportunity for paid service work. Big picture opportunities is not a difficult concept. At least one would think that...

Grasgod, I love the new machine! I mowed the west side of my yard last night in about an hour. It usually takes about 2 using a 54" 17 hp mower. I could have gone faster, but I hadn't mowed it in about 3-4 weeks. The barn swallows figured out what ws going on and circled me looking for food. They are fun to watch when they do that, but watching makes it hard to mow straight. Had to stop for the storms that blew up last night.

I think there were 4 or more tornados reported last night in Iowa. Made watching the Olympics a bit more interesting. You'd miss an event because they were warning about the tornados. Overall, a good job, except for when they interrupted the olympics to put "live on the air" some reporter dildo that was traveling in a TV van up I35 towards a bad storm. We didn't need that. It was of completely no value.
