Odds & Ends
Dude was wiped out last night. That'll be me tonight. It's been a long week. After what seemed like an eternity, my plants are sprouting and growing. It really was like 10 days, just as the seed packs said. You can't hardly see them, but tiny pepper plants are popping up to the left. To … Continue reading Odds & Ends
What’re You Giving Up?
Lent started this last Wednesday. Lent is a solemn season where Catholics prepare for Easter by fasting, abstinence and more. Basically, by behaving. Adam Piggott has a good piece here about Lent this year for him. It'll be just the same for me. Each lent I try giving up this or that, but usually fail. … Continue reading What’re You Giving Up?
Get a Dog. Die Alone.
Looks like Don lemon has stepped on his knob claiming that Nikki Haley is past her prime. Being a Homo, he probably doesn't understand heterosexual sexual market value (SMV). In a nutshell, the SMV basically says that since men want women that are younger, fit, not tattooed, and debt free, once a woman gets to … Continue reading Get a Dog. Die Alone.
Spring is Springing, and a Lazy Dawg
It’s the middle of February, and is still pretty damn cold. But I got my seeds into pots. This time I didn’t order any actual plants, because the plants I ordered from Burpee last year arrived kind of peeked and weren’t really any better than the ones I planted myself. Yesterday I came came into … Continue reading Spring is Springing, and a Lazy Dawg
Papa Will Fix the Lamp
Herself bought a lamp some time ago, and it sat for awhile before I got around to it. The problem was pretty simple. It had an old style bakelite socket, which the threads wore off and it would flop around. Easy enought, go get a socket and screw it one. So I went to Ace … Continue reading Papa Will Fix the Lamp
We have both a gate, and a garage door openers. They really are handy. Pull up, mash the first button, the gate opens. Mash the second one, the garage opens. Keeps the cars, and everything else, away from Goblins. But, they have remotes. And remotes get lost. More accurately, we leave them in the car … Continue reading RTFM
I'm in a class all this week. Not teaching it. Learning it. It's the same package I'm being tasked to support that tormented me whilst trying to learn it on my own. Turns out, we had the same issues in class, and found the same solution I found, which is the class images are old, … Continue reading Shoot Me
We Don’t Deserve them
Every morning after our walk, the pups play for a solid 15-20 minutes. As long as I'm outside doing morning chores, they are following me around. https://vimeo.com/794689907
Drying Things Out
I got a food dehydrator not long ago. I wanted a decent one. Not a cheap plastic thing with a lightbulb. I've used it a fair bit, making jerky and drying fruits and herbs. You get a chunk of beef on sale, and you can make jerky for a fraction of the cost. Last week, … Continue reading Drying Things Out
