I am working on clearing the piles of rock on the far side of it to get it farther south, but till then I can still get wife's care and motorcycle in and out of the garage.

I can store it for free in one of our guarded compounds, but right now like it close to home where I can get in and out of it at will since we are adding the little things that will stay in it all the time. It is also nice for starting it and checking the systems during the winter. Maybe next winter when it is time to store it again.

I absolutely do not understand the rabid dislike of Wal-Mart. Most of the arguments against them I have read are based on mis-information, dis-information, a total lack of understanding of basic economics or some unreasonable base hatred.

As far as W-M displacing homes and workers...balderdash, poppycock and tripe! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

This seems pretty well presented and far from unreasonable or tripe: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontl.../walmart/view/

The hundreds of people in my community that just got a token payment for the loss of their retirement homes, so a Walmart Supercenter can be built a few blocks from a newly renovated Sam's Club which is across the street from a Costco, probably won't agree with you either. If they are telling the truth then they are starting over on their meager pensions and a payment of around $15,000 for the loss of their mobile homes.

Maybe I don't understand the heartlessness of basic and sound economics. The palsied excuse of "business is business" seems more like the motto of the Mob Bosses of the criminal underworld then respectable and decent businessmen.

Maybe I just care to much for the other guy and should just learn to look the other way until this effects me personaly and for now only worry about number one. But by then, when we become the other guy, wouldn't it be too late?

I guess I am lucky. I don't shop at WalMart unless we are on the road. At home it is to far to drive to go to a WalMart, over 25 miles. It is not worth the trouble.
