MM, that pic with Barron in it... Trump is about 6'2" or 6'3" Barron is a solid 6'6" or 6'7". He's a bigun.
I am currently firmly in the 'two standards of justice' camp. Observe what occurs around you and then select the simplest explanation for what you've seen. Explains a solid 90% of what I see happen in the world and leaves about a 10% chance for the 3d/4d stuff we constantly read about in this particular case. If I were putting money on the table at this point with what I've seen, the money is going on the 'two systems of justice' wager.
got it!

IG, constant grade? Where I expel the water should be lower than I collect it i think? it's a considerable drop. 4 feet to the spot i have to get it. I dont think I know how to that and wanna know how that spot is. could i dig 14 inches in backyard, 14 inches at the expel point and be sure the water is gonna drain out? Sounds to easy!

an 'engineer' is exactly what Monroe County would like me to engage. i'm trying to do this on cheap though... and not have to don a pair of Mom Jeans while doing so.

I'm thinking a 60 feet section where the water runs off the neighbor property line where it starts to level out. gets it out where the run down hill will start. about 20 feet closer to the house where water pools up, 50 feet out to the same spot where the 60 foot section ends. a tube connects the 60 to the 50 footer and I then run a 60 foot section down past the west side of the house and expels. I could run another 60 foot and expel it right at the street but it's another 5 or 6 foot drop from there...

I gotta tell you TK, my initial thought when my wife got her inheritance last December was to pay 'JOE's Drainage' to do the project. Now her parents farmed about 900 acres in NW Indiana and her Dad knew how to lay tile in the fields. She's pretty familiar with the idea. I'm trying to make myself relevant to her life and that inheritance and am looking to shave a few dollars off the project now. That means I am no longer interested in Controlled Drainage Systems, LLC showing up an doing the work. Gotta be relevant... I'll be working till I'm in my 60's if I don't play this right! I seriously do seek a way to get that water outta my back yard and my cinder block foundation dried out when I look at it in 2021.

I think I'm in for about 170 ft to get the water outta the back yard and around the house down the hill: 150 X $50 = $750 I can rent the backhoe for whatever it's worth for a day. The backyard is higher than the spot I want to expel the water at. How do I make the expel point lower than the intake point in the backyard. A string???

holy moly... i hate to bring up french drains again since I thought that got settled last fall but I've stumbled upon this: https://www.lowes.com/pd/NDS-4-in-x-10-ft-5-Corrugated-French-Drain-Pipe/3136611 can that really work? i thought this was going to be something a landscaper with a backhoe and lots of tile and gravel would have to do. this is on my bucket list this spring and if this an option I might rent a backhoe for a day.

Watched my only NFL game for the season this year tonight. It was okay. They, the NFL, lost me a couple of years ago. I enjoyed the latina booty shakin' at halftime so I guess I'll tune in next year.

DrJ, Only happens if I have to login. I have Symantec Endpoint Protection and Malywarebytes realtime. I'm an IT guy and watch security pretty closely, though that's no protection against anything. The link says it's a google thing watching for breaches.

One last thing on those Hatchets. Their gym, The Hatchet House, seats 7100. I've been to games when there was closer to 8000 in the venue making the fire marshals chose between enforcing code and scooting outta the place with their lives. Not bad for a high school and the type of thing that makes memories and engender a love for the game. Minnesota just upset Ohio State at home. Time for the Hoosiers to step on the court.

"One of the WORST things the IHSAA did was to institute class basketball in the Indiana state tournament!" This is true. The IHSAA wanted to hand out more trophies as they thought it would build 'interest' in the game. The exact opposite happened. My lil sis was a cheerleader at Bloomington North the year that school won the last true State Championship. It's still fun and I've enjoyed it since. Especially when the Zoeller Dynasty powered my hometown team, The Washington Hatchets, to an incredible four class 3A state titles from 2005 to 2011. In my book, as great as they were, those championships still have an asterisk next to them. They still have 3 more without asterisks!

I would note the college ball is pretty frickin' important too. Just as I'm biased on the HS game, so too am I biased at the college level. I'm trying to get pumped right now for the Indiana/Michigan State game. It is a home game but I'm biased, not unrealistic. My guys have a tough row to hoe tonight.

HS basketball holds a revered place, almost holy actually in Indiana. It's even more sacrosanct in Southern Indiana where I reside.

"... in what is probably the most famous high school basketball game of all time..." As a Hoosier, I can assure you that this particular honor is possessed by the Milan High School Indians team of 1954.
