Just curious...

     I am in Liberty township and a few months ago got an offer to buy my royalties for 1500 to 1800 per acre, but they would do a more in-depth look if I was serious which "mite change the numbers" slightly....even tho I am not drilled or receiving any royalties ..talked to a landsman rite b4 I contacted them and he advised caution as there will be "significant" activity in my area in the "near future"....how about it, anybody else get an offer or hear anything or see any activity here in Tioga Co. ?

I have created a new discussion called Man Made Climate Change and Anti Fossil Fuel Extremists in respect for Mr. Ladd. Anyone interested in taking part in that discussion can now find it at:


Of Interest: Out of 15 anti-frackers running 8 were elected: They are listed at the new discussion.

In the time period you are referring to Old Timer, I was dealing with the father  of my two stepdaughters. He blamed the older girl for being born and causing his life to be ruined. The younger girl developed diabetes at about 5 years. We nearly lost her at that time.  The only news we had came from TV......No computers yet. and not much was ever said about gas and oil deposits. About all I recall about Nixon was him saying "I am not a crook" 

Also I was trying to deal with my wife who was well into the problem of OCD, (Obsessive Compulsion Disorder).  The direct cause of our divorce..  I suspect other  folks here had little information of the history of the gas and oil industry and what it means to us today.

The "missing money" finally showed up today!

When "Missing Money" becomes "Found Money" it is always a good thing! Thanks for letting us know.

Nice fairy tale, Brother Grimm! 

When a check of a few thousand dollars does not show up when expected, and a huge payment is due the next day and the sheriff shows up, then maybe you will have something the rest of us can laugh at Brian!

Not a fairy tale, but a real life situation to deal with!

Granddad Ladd

Brian: Maybe this will give you an example of humor. Just so yuou kno what it might look like

Football Game (look at faces)
This is hilarious, watch till the end. Somebody has wonderful creativity to put this together!

ROFLMAO!!! Good stuff....thanks for the laugh!

Old Timer I never read many or any of Grimms  fairy tales as a kid. Somehow they escaped my notice. Nearly all my spare  time was spent  exploring the area around me, much to the displeasure of my mother. As soon as I was able to walk or run, Out the door I went to visit the farmer next door. My mother was a city or town girl and I guess  she did not understand my  growing interest in cows, horses, dogs, pigs, chickens and all that goes with these things. 

Fairy tales were just make believe and I needed something more solid that I could get my hands on!

Granddad Ladd

I have no doubt but what it  is true Old Timer. However I am not a history buff although I recall some of the things you speak of.  But like I said, my attention was pretty much taken up by dealing with a diabetic daughter, a wife who collected everything regardless of value or need. And then there was the biological father of my two stepdaughters who only wanted to hurt their mother and blame the oldest girl for her own birth. 

He was on his first leave from the marines. He and his buddies decided to get some girl pregnant on their first leave. He thought that he was now a "MAN" since he was a marine and could get some girl pregnant and not a little boy just graduated from high school.

He made many very bad choices!  Two little kids would be paying for most of their lives without a little intervention.

This is no fairy tale!

Yes I recall them vaguely….I recall the gas fires being started and I think a man named Red Adair was called to put some of them out.

During those years my Ex wife and I raised rabbits for medical research. I trucked rabbits to several Pharmical labs as well as to Edgewood Arsenal. Rabbits that would not pass medical muster were trucked to New York City to a facility that took in chickens, ducks and other small animals for the fancy  (DINERS) and grocers.

Ex and I made and sold maple syrup, butter and eggs to a store in Keenyville.  We were pretty much self sufficient.  We cut coupons and sold salvaged items like newspaper ect.  We had our own fuel, (firewood) that I cut. And lots of garden produce.

But now I am too old to do those things.  My ex continued to salvage after we parted. And got into serious trouble with county commissioners.  It was explained to them that she grew up with parents that never got really over the depression. Very early training in childhood.

Very very sad! A lifetime of collecting useless items!

Granddad Ladd

OT, Logic hasn't got much to do with it. Ideology has everything to do with it.

Last winter Boston imported at least 2 LNG Ships loaded with Russian NG and other ships from producing countries like Trinidad, Algeria, and Egypt.

When we consider The Wars that went on and the American Treasure lost, both men and women it is beyond comprehension that anyone in their right mind woule even consider what is going on in this country right now. It is pure evil and madness. And it does affect Tioga Co. It does affect the decisions drillers make in many ways; if to invest, when to invest or even to invest. I have often asked this question, "Why should Shell put another dime in Tioga County when they can go anywhere in the world and produce energy?" Some operators in Tioga Co do not those choices.
