SteveU;
So who got an audit from the IRS or a visit from the ATF last year, huh?? 

The IRS I get but ATF???  Automatic transmission fluid?  Antique tractor foundation?  Apple tottin' firemen?  Sorry.  It's been a long day.

Alcohol Tobacco Firearms (ATF). 

Apparently my first remarks in this post were offensive to one or two people.  Because I think this site is about education and fun I have, of course, withdrew any parts that might be seen as offensive.

Jens,....Nope, they wont' just give it back, you have to file a revised statement, based upon their numbers, then you get the money back.  They don't make it easy, but it is the law.

I wanted to also use at least the Canadian, UK and Australian "Government" fear acronyms but sadly I'm too unknowledgble.
Sh-h-h.    Father-in-law in his younger years had the still (Alcohol) and did used to grow strong smelling plants in his wifes  greenhouse (Tobacco) and now that he's gone I have his Guns in addition to my own makes more than just a few. And how my wife does her taxes . . . .why is it people wave her through left hand turns that I'd never be allowed?
We actually Do get overflown and photoed by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) due to the tweeker labs (methanphedemin) within a couple of miles around us and the grow operations (marijuana) farther up in the forests. Best just to be polite and wave and nod at everyone.
Strange  as it may sound to some of you it's actually pretty peaceful around here as long as you follow the rule of don't ask, don't tell, and don't ever make me have to look.

SteveU.
I will add this postscript edit here as a clearer explanation of my posts. Guns don't make me safe. Too many are a pain in the ass to keep secure, used and appreciated.
My neighbors, my community is my safety. The old families here have a tradition of self policing themselves. 30 years ago individual police, military and "agency" people discovered our valley as a quiet safe place to raise and leave their families while off to work wherever and then later retire. What they do ask is to come home and be able to turn it off and hoe their gardens. So they added the "Don't make me Have To Look" to our local culture.  Children and women can walk the streets here. There is virtually no grafitti, burglaries, or crimes of passions. Poor/no cell phone. No broadcast TV. Slow,slow telephone service - hard core internet gamers move away. The 105 year old bank has never been robbed, nor the store/gas station or the two bars. The five churches and three fraternal organizations are open and welcoming. As homeplace to the Mount Saint Helens Rescue team you can be Life Flighted to one of five world class hospitals in the city within 35-45 minutes. Or a 45 minute to 2 hour ambulance ride: Both FREE prepaid through a local  property tax. The same tax finances an EMS team so good we are used as the live in Residence training facility by those same hospitals. "Wanna die here"' is hard 'cause those young guys and gals are going to "save" you. My wife and I chose to be here and follow the rules of this peaceful quiet POLITE community she grew up in.

Gstew on a first post asked a not-unreasonable question  but without the courtesy of volunteering the same about himself, or even any other of the information. And even when nudged by a member failed to respond. So now I wonder all you fellas' who responded; you the ones who got the Internet porn and the comprmised Email systems?? You really have no idea who or maybe what he was now did you?

lowspeedlife/Scott  I've just discovered that this is a resurrected thread from February 2008.
You and I have been talking to long gone ghosts. Now that feels creepy. And really sad too. Sorry to have misled you man.

You 'all can quit laughing now.
And that Gstew follow never did say WHERE he was from.  So who got an audit from the IRS or a visit from the ATF last year, huh?? NOT ME.

            While the old thread lives again, I will join the party. Always interested to hear what the rest of the world does with old Listers and their clones. I am in the Kimberley
region, far North of Western Australia, in a small town in the outback. Not many old Listers here, or 'roids for that matter, though I have acquired several of my own, along
with various other early engines (see my last post in the previous thread "Lifting a CS")  Here we need backup power to keep the aircon running, not to save us from freezing! Keep on crankin 'em.       Regards,  Combustor.
Toys include- Lister CS 8/1, Lister VA SOM plant and some Aussie engines.

Whaddya burn in your engines, Combustor? I've heard fuel's expensive in Australia. BTW, I see you're a newbie, welcome to Listerengine; there is so much good info here your head will spin.

            Hi, tlfrantz1 and the Lister group, yes fuel in our remote area is not cheap. On current exchange rates it would equate to more than $8 US per gallon. I burn quite a
bit of waste veg oil blended with Jet-A1 and/or RUG in my 2004 1HZ Landcruiser, but find that for standby use, a similar brew gums up the injector pump in my Lister  in our
hot climate when not in regular use, so just use straight Diesel. Have been lurking for a while and learning a lot. Keep 'em burnin' and turnin'.  Regards,  Combustor.

          Hi there, Hards2U and others, I am in the Ord Irrigation area, where farming began in 1963, so most gear here is more recent, though I have found several "collector's
items"at the old port town of Wyndham. I admit that most of the stuff clogging my yard (from 20 ton dragline excavator to 20 kg. Villiers) are for my idle amusement, but my Lister VA Start-o-matic still gets a run when the power goes out. Have just got a ton and a half of Southern Cross BE-C twin up and running well, but Help! where do I
put it to make room for the next project?  Regards,  Combustor.

hi all! i'm new here and just was wondering where most people on this message board are from. just curious, i guess.

There's a clue just to the left where I'm from.
<<..............

It would be nice if you told us where you are.  ??? ???
I like to think the older I get the wiser I become, but I'm not so sure.
