These Georgia Pull-On Muddog Comfort Core® Work Boots are durable and very comfortable. They’re made from the toughest materials, such as SPR leather.

It also is non-marking and provides flexibility and cushioning.

The Comfort Core® insole provides cushioning, ventilation and is equipped with a heel plug for shock absorption. Underneath, a fiberglass shank has been assembled into the base of this work Wellington for arch support and steady footing.

Barnyard- and ranch-approved, the chemical-resistance and comfort will make you want to pull on these round-toe 11 “ boots – easy to do with pull straps and a dipped topline.

Mixing Gas for 2 Cycle Engines

If you are like a lot of people living in the suburbs or on a farm or lifestyle block, you probably have several 2 cycle engines such as a weed eater, chainsaw, blower, etc. Most of these engines take different mixtures 1/50, 1/32 etc. All the instructions tell how to mix one gallon, however, you usually only need a tank or two at a time, and a gallon will go bad before it is used up. Nobody needs several gallons of bad gas mixed at different ratios; the solution is to mix a tank at a time.

1

Always stabilize your gas before you start. It will keep the gas fresh for longer periods of time and protect your engines from gumming up. One example is STA-BIL, however, there are many others available.

SKU: 090180383

2

Use a measuring device for small amounts, 2oz- 1oz- 1/2 oz and 1/4 oz. There are many available.  You will also need small mixing containers, 12 gallon (1.9 L) and quart measuring cups will take care of most of your needs.

SKU: 006232160

3

If your engine calls for a 1/32 mixture that is 1 oz of oil to 32 oz of gas, or 1/2oz of oil to 16oz of gas, or 1/4 oz oil to 8 oz. gas, mix only what you need at the time.

4

Find a piece of cardboard or plywood and list all your equipment on it.Include the ratios that they require, and the recipe for a tank of gas. Put this on the garage wall; this will keep you from looking up the manual each time you use it.

DIY Hanging Mason Jar Lights

While entertaining alfresco this season, these simple floating jar votives suspended from garden hooks make for that perfect final patio touch, offering an inviting, soft glow that keeps the gathering going long into the evening.
For this project we picked from a handful of mismatched empty mason jars that have stacked up around the house. The varied sizes lend to that overall rustic appeal. We love how they can easily be transferred indoors or out, depending on where you’re entertaining. Use them for a summer party, upcoming wedding or a respite with the family over a glass of wine.

1. Separate the bands from the lids and drill equidistant holes near the base of each band (we used a 7/64-inch bit).


2. Using wire cutters, snip 8-inch long strips from clock chain and attach through the holes in the jar bands using pliers, to create hanging handles. We used #5 sized clock chain, because it’s sturdy for holding the weight of the jars while still giving off a delicate feel. We found it at our local hardware store in the same aisle as regular chain and jack chain, which could just as easily be used for this project.

3. Twist bands around the jar mouths to secure, creating a hanging mason jar.


4. Fill jars about halfway with water, drop tea lights inside to float and light to create an instantly glowing group of mason jar votives. Cluster and use them just like this for an inviting indoor or outdoor centerpiece.


5. Suspend jars from garden hooks secured along a fence as hanging lanterns.
