I have only one black cherry dermader plant.  Bought it at the reiman 
gardens plant sale.  If I don't eat em all, I will try to start some 
next year.  Romas from seed are doing ok.  None ripe yet but the 
Black CHerry.  Dermaders have been liking the rain.  Most are over 6 
feet tall.


Green beans likewise.  I have a 2 layer Berlin Wall of green beans 
over 6 feet tall.  they are all vining all over each other and up 
into the trees where they can reach.  I won't be pickin em up thar!


Black Cherry are the first dermaders of the year.  I have a volunteer 
in the raised bad for root crops that looks like it will be some form 
of cherry dermader.   (Pronunciation guide at:

Shoot the wabbit and eat Hasenfeffer.  It is a delicacy like escargot.

You need wolf or coyote pee.  spray that around and critters stay away.

Hard to find in DC.  Mostly snakes there, of the 2 legged variety: 
lawyerus humanus



You grow your own black cherry tomatoes from seed?

Incidentally, my litter-composting days are over since I moved.

I now have a cute white-tailed yard bunny that was decapitating my pepper
plants, so I sprayed bitter apple on the tender leaves (same stuff I use on
houseplants to deter the cat from chewing the leaves).   I also tried the
same spray on the fragrant yellow roses, which are irresistible to Japanese
beetles.  Seems to worth in both applications.

[MBZ] A Gullah Halloween Story and How to Cook Possum

2015-07-25 Thread archer75--- via Mercedes

  http://islandconnectionnews.com/?p=1949
 
 Gullah ghost story
 By Sidi Limehouse, Rosebank Farms
 
 The English began to populate the Charleston area in the late 17th century 
 and their numbers multiplied in the early 18th century. Most came from 
 Barbados - another English colony - because Barbados had become all used up; 
 the land, that is. Plantations had grown and the tillable land was under 
 ownership and planted. Charlestowne and the surrounding islands were new 
 land and opportunity awaited those who chose to come to this new frontier. 
 These people were knowledgeable about what they faced; forests and swamps. 
 To clear the land and to drain the swamps they needed labor and they brought 
 some labor in the form of slaves, but they needed many more slaves. Thus, 
 the slave trade brought the labor and the planters borrowed money to buy 
 them.
 Creating a working and profitable plantation was no easy task. The problems 
 the plantation owners faced were numerous and daunting. One problem - who 
 was going to oversee these workers - was quickly solved. The English looked 
 to Scotland for help. They recruited young Scotsmen to train the slaves, to 
 teach them a new language. The young Scots were most successful. That is why 
 the language known as Gullah has such a Scottish brogue.
 The tale I am relating to you was told to me in 1949 by Mr. Ben Brown who 
 was then 98 years old. (At the time, I was 11 years old.) He had been a 
 slave living at Mullet Hall. He had belonged to Simon Legare, owner of 
 several plantations on John's, Wadmalaw, and Edisto islands. He and I were 
 friends and I learned much from Mr. Brown. Things have changed since those 
 days; the really important things remain the same. We all spoke Gullah. We 
 were passengers on the same ship. This tale is told how I heard it, in 
 Gullah. There will be no translation at the end:

 loner eber since she 3 or 4 year old. By en by she git de repetaton she mus

As long as you don't group me with wacko the insane!   Its all good.

I don't understand what is wrong with GMO food myself.  What I can 
tell you is that products made from GMO corn turn my insides out. This 
leads me to be skeptical of beef and pork and chicken and turkey fed 
GMO grain, and even venison here where most of their diet is gmo corn.


Is it the Bt?  could be, it is a poison bred into the plant.  Is it 
something else?  Could be.  I started having trouble with corn 
products 30 years, which just about coincides with when the first Bt 
corn came out.  I have no science.  Just results of trial and error 
food elimination.


What I have been able to figure out is that when I was a kid, all our 
food came from the farm, except sometimes bread.  Then we started 
buying milk in  place of milking a Hereford.  and so it went until 
here we are now.  Almost nothing is homegrown or farm fresh, or eaten 
in season.


BTW, had the first helping of homegrown green beans tonight, along 
with a heritage black cherry tomato.  Great real food!  Had a nice 
crop of sugar pea pods this summer so far.Way better than cat poop 
jelly!


So I am seeking out things to do with exotic grains that Monsanto has 
not heard of, and new types of those exotic seeds (grains)


IMHO, it is a conservative approach.  Conserve.  Conservation.  It is 
what we all do with our old MBs. Not a trendy term.  The state 
conservation commissions set up to conserve natural resources, have 
become DNRs with  the mission of dictating who gets to use natural 
resources.  The socialist approach, not a conservation or conservative 
approach.


Even andrew is a conservative at heart, as are all liberals.  He does 
an excellent job conserving old MBs.


When GMO is only accelerating the plant selection that has been done 
for eons, I don't have a problem with it.  When GMO is grafting in 
bits of other organisms, we may run into trouble. Such may be the case 
with Bt grains.

haven't dared to try it yet but we do often get non-homogenized milk from the

to drive it and the key has been missing since. I have searched the car all 
over to locate it. Never turned up. 5 years later today I am using the tractor 
to move it around so I can load it on the trailer. Mess with that or a while 
and get it loaded. Unloading it at new okie acres i look down between the 
passenger front seat and the console and what do I see? The missing key. Wow. 
Might have actually started and could have drove it over here. Oh well.

[MBZ] OT: Windows 7 Questions

2015-07-25 Thread Craig via Mercedes
I have just installed Windows 7 Home Premium on our Dell Inspiron 600m
(old, outdated, underpowered, etc.) dual-boot with Linux laptop.

I have some questions:

1. How do I run Windows Update?

2. How do I manually run Windows authorization/activation (which must be
   done in the first 30 days)?

   There is a Window feature in the Control Panel called Windows Process
   Activation Service with the sub-entries of:
- .NET Environment
- Configuration APIs
- Process Model

   Are these things I should turn on?

3. What are XPS documents?

   I want to be able to print to postscript so I can transfer the
   postscript (with all the fonts) to my Linux system to make new PDFs
   to replace ones which were made on a Windows system without all fonts
   embedded (which are hard to read on Linux). Is that at all related?

4. Installing Windows 7, of course, over-wrote my GRUB boot sector
   information. I have a procedure to fix the boot system of our main
   computer, which is single-boot and has /boot as /dev/sda1:

1. Boot SystemRescue CD.
2. Execute startx
3. At a terminal prompt, type, grub enter.
4. Type, root (hd0,0).
5. Type, setup (hd0).
6. Type, quit.
7. Reboot.

   Since the laptop has

First partition  - Windows 7
Second partition - another NTFS partition
Third partition  - /boot,
   
   should I change line 4 above to: Type, root (hd0,2) ?

5. Can I go ahead and install Dell's XP drivers and have things work
   properly? The network is now working properly, so I figure I should
   not install that driver, but the audio is not working.

6. Anything else I should know?

Thanks,


Craig

Mitch.


Yes,  a manual trans can be in 2 gears at once and lock up the trans 
that way.  I had a 66 frod bronco 3 spd.  The column shift linkage 
was very crummy; thin pot metal.  It would often  not get out of 1st 
when it went into second if you shifted normally.  To keep it from 
jamming, you had to run the shift lever in 3 distinct movements: up 
toward R, forward across the H; then up into 2nd.  I replaced the 
junk factory shifter with a cheap floor shift from JCWhitney.  It was 
some better, but you still could lock up the trans if you tried to 
shift fast.


A couple months after I sold it, I heard the kid that bought it had 
blown up the transmission.   The kid was a spoiled brat, and he 
tried to hotrod and got the transmission in 2 gears. The family owned 
the local scrap yard, so at under 60,000 miles, it was cut up for 
scrap.  This was a very rare one year only U-110 Bronco with factory 
soft top, door inserts and soft doors.


I've had this happen in 110s too, particularly when the ball socket 
breaks off on one linkage.


However since Curt's symptoms are one way, and not both forward and 
back, I don't think it is the trans in 2 gears at once.

Re: [MBZ] OT: Golf TDI

2015-07-25 Thread Peter Frederick via Mercedes
Actually, it is, which is why the shifter mechanism has some set up  
that prevents leaving one fork engaged while moving to another.  If  
one of the three cables is broken, it will stay in whatever gear  
selected with that cable AND engage another one, causing it to lock  
up.  Constant mesh except for the reverse idler, the shifter just  
engages dog clutches to select which gears transmit power, the others  
just free-wheel.


Could just as easily be a broken shifter fork, too, doing exactly the  
same thing.

Re: [MBZ] 124 monovalve insert?

2015-07-25 Thread Curt Raymond via Mercedes
Even if nobody is making it now it'll only be a matter of time. The things fail 
with regularity don't they? Theres a large number of 124s running around, its 
seems like it'd be silly for somebody to not make some money off them.

I would suggest the use of a pair of dyke cutters to clip the edges of the
grill, rather than pliers.

If you have some with long handles so you have better leverage, even
better. You should be able to go around the entire grill edge rather
quickly and remove it cleanly.

Just a thought.. hope it works for you.

 I have just installed Windows 7 Home Premium

I know very little 'bout Win7

 3. What are XPS documents?
 
I want to be able to print to postscript so I can
 transfer the postscript (with all the fonts) to my Linux
 system to make new PDFs to replace ones which were made on
 a Windows system without all fonts embedded (which are hard
 to read on Linux). Is that at all related?

When I must use MSWin, I use PDFCreator to print PDF
files.  I believe it is based on Ghostscript - and although I
haven't tested it extensively, it seems to embed the fonts.
GPL licensed.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/

 4. Installing Windows 7, of course, over-wrote my GRUB boot
 sector information.

GRUB or GRUB2?  They are quite different.

 I have a procedure to fix the boot
 system of our main computer, which is single-boot and
 has /boot as /dev/sda1:
 
 1. Boot SystemRescue CD.
 2. Execute startx
 3. At a terminal prompt, type, grub enter.

Kinda redundant to startx from a terminal just to open an
xterm, isn't it?  *smiles*

 4. Type, root (hd0,0).
 5. Type, setup (hd0).
 6. Type, quit.
 7. Reboot.

That looks like GRUB legacy.

Since the laptop has
 
 First partition  - Windows 7
 Second partition - another NTFS partition
 Third partition  - /boot,

should I change line 4 above to: Type, root (hd0,2) ?

Maybe.  I tried to migrate a physical Win7 to a virtual
machine and this dual partition thwarted me and I failed.  On
mine, the first partition was very small and was the Win7
boot.  The second partition was the real Win location.

From my experience, Win7 is ornery about booting so I'm
reluctant to advise Just try it.  But the root command
looks correct for legacy GRUB.  

However, I gave up on dual boot a long time ago.  MS Win is
now always in a virtual machine (VirtualBox most recently).
So long as there is enough RAM, it works just fine

 6. Anything else I should know?

I sure like having my MSWin as a guest OS.  It means I don't
have to have as much software installed in MSWin because both
the guest and the host are running.  And I set up the
networking so the guest can't reach the internet.  And it's
easy to make a backup of the guest - or migrate to another
host.  Oh, and I can copy/paste between the guest and the
host.  The only disadvantage I've found is the need for RAM.

I have an laptop that shipped with WinXP, that I put the
maximum of 1G RAM and it was quite usable running a OpenBox
on the host and WinXP on the guest.  Not peppy, but usable.

Re: [MBZ] Grill Removal - Unable to Open hood -- W124 '91 300D

2015-07-25 Thread Meade Dillon via Mercedes
I need to correct that.  On the later 124 cars, what I said is correct, but
on the 1st generation, it _just_ may be possible to remove the chrome
surround from the side and from below.  However, it is not a straight shot
from below, so you'd be working more or less blind.

I've got an '87 and a '95, both have differences from Larry's car, a 1990.
I think he may have a shot after looking at my '87, but I called him a few
minutes ago and tried to describe what I was looking at.

That's what I was afraid of.  I may put a light on the connection, see if the 
PBU is calling for heat when I've dialed in AC, make sure the issue really is 
the valve.

Looks like a rebuilt PBU is about $150, that's less than a new valve from the

Re: [MBZ] W124 Hood Won't Release

2015-07-25 Thread Curly McLain via Mercedes

Hi Gang -
After trying everything to get the hood open (thanks for all the 
great suggestions), I used a die grinder with a thin cutting blade 
that went through that plastic like butter!Once I had the grill 
insert cut out I thought I'd give it anohter try and see if we could 
get it open.   I asked my wife to help and while I sat on the hood, 
she tried to pull the little tab that pops through grill  when the 
release is pulled.  It seemed to move s 1/4 or so but it wasn't 
going farther than that.


So I got down and studied the situation and finally focused on 
the pull latch that sticks through the grill.  It appeared the 
threads of the bolt that holds the tab on was rubbing against the 
radiator support bar!  Sure enough, I used a screw driver  with 
almost no force, it came around that round support!Several 
months ago and many, many hood opening and closings later,  I had 
replaced the little tab that sticks through the grill.   I must have 
put the bolt in backwards and eventually, the threads on the bolt 
caught on the support and refused to let it go.


I pulled the bolt out and reversed it so it would clear from now 
on.  It was a dumb mistake which cost me around $100 for the 
replacement grill and insert plus many hours agonizing over how I'd 
get it open and finally about 3 hours to actually remove and replace 
the grill.


So it's fixed and at least the replacement grill looks better 
than my old one.


Just be forewarned -- if you must replace the little tab that 
extends through the grill, be sure to put the head of the bolt on 
the passenger side to prevent an interference.


Thanks again for helping me think through this problem -

This in ONLY valid if it gets stuck when stopped.  If it is

 As long as you don't group me with wacko the insane!   Its all good.

 I don't understand what is wrong with GMO food myself.  What I can tell
 you is that products made from GMO corn turn my insides out. This leads me
 to be skeptical of beef and pork and chicken and turkey fed GMO grain, and
 even venison here where most of their diet is gmo corn.

 Is it the Bt?  could be, it is a poison bred into the plant.  Is it
 something else?  Could be.  I started having trouble with corn products 30
 years, which just about coincides with when the first Bt corn came out.  I
 have no science.  Just results of trial and error food elimination.

 What I have been able to figure out is that when I was a kid, all our
 food came from the farm, except sometimes bread.  Then we started buying
 milk in  place of milking a Hereford.  and so it went until here we are
 now.  Almost nothing is homegrown or farm fresh, or eaten in season.

 BTW, had the first helping of homegrown green beans tonight, along with a
 heritage black cherry tomato.  Great real food!  Had a nice crop of sugar
 pea pods this summer so far.Way better than cat poop jelly!

 So I am seeking out things to do with exotic grains that Monsanto has not
 heard of, and new types of those exotic seeds (grains)

 IMHO, it is a conservative approach.  Conserve.  Conservation.  It is
 what we all do with our old MBs. Not a trendy term.  The state conservation
 commissions set up to conserve natural resources, have become DNRs with
 the mission of dictating who gets to use natural resources.  The socialist
 approach, not a conservation or conservative approach.

 Even andrew is a conservative at heart, as are all liberals.  He does an
 excellent job conserving old MBs.

 When GMO is only accelerating the plant selection that has been done for
 eons, I don't have a problem with it.  When GMO is grafting in bits of
 other organisms, we may run into trouble. Such may be the case with Bt
 grains.

I'm convinced and in any case, I don't like the taste of milk.

 before drinking, or don't to get some cream for cereal.

  My buddy Greg does a lot of baking (and now is learning ice cream) and
  uses raw milk mostly, I think he said there is a dairy on Wadmalaw that
  produces and sells it.  He gets it at the Stono Market on Johns Island.
  Not too convenient for you, but probably a lot cheaper.

   I grew up on raw milk, straight from the nearest neighbors dairy
 farm.  Store milk is like water to me, nothing in it.

Re: [MBZ] W124 Hood Won't Release

Hi Gang -
After trying everything to get the hood open (thanks for all the 
great suggestions), I used a die grinder with a thin cutting blade that 
went through that plastic like butter!Once I had the grill insert 
cut out I thought I'd give it anohter try and see if we could get it 
open.   I asked my wife to help and while I sat on the hood, she tried 
to pull the little tab that pops through grill  when the release is 
pulled.  It seemed to move s 1/4 or so but it wasn't going farther than 
that.


So I got down and studied the situation and finally focused on the 
pull latch that sticks through the grill.  It appeared the threads of 
the bolt that holds the tab on was rubbing against the radiator support 
bar!  Sure enough, I used a screw driver  with almost no force, it came 
around that round support!Several months ago and many, many hood 
opening and closings later,  I had replaced the little tab that sticks 
through the grill.   I must have put the bolt in backwards and 
eventually, the threads on the bolt caught on the support and refused to 
let it go.


I pulled the bolt out and reversed it so it would clear from now 
on.  It was a dumb mistake which cost me around $100 for the replacement 
grill and insert plus many hours agonizing over how I'd get it open and 
finally about 3 hours to actually remove and replace the grill.


So it's fixed and at least the replacement grill looks better than 
my old one.


Just be forewarned -- if you must replace the little tab that 
extends through the grill, be sure to put the head of the bolt on the 
passenger side to prevent an interference.


Thanks again for helping me think through this problem -
