Back to the subject at hand. When my kids first started working, I gave them a few simple concepts as advice: Show up when … Continue reading Starting Work.
I worked out in the field doing real work for nearly 30 years and I've run into two different types of trades dudes in that time. There are the guys that buy the cheapest tools they possibly can, with the reasoning that somebody's going to steal them so why bother spending any kind of dough. … Continue reading Victorinox Chef’s knife.
Saturday the wife and I went to mass, masks and everything. It was worth it. I've missed it. The first reading was from Micah, chapter 2; Woe to those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds! At morning’s light they carry it out because it is in their power to do it. … Continue reading Things Never Change

Gimme free [stuff]
My city got battered by the most intense storm I've ever witnessed Sunday. That said, I've been through tropical storms, including some good Texas ones, but I've normally slept through them. What's funny is nearly zero of the smart tech devices I have gave me any warning whatsoever. We went to Mass, then breakfast. All … Continue reading That was one big assed storm
Whoa! it's been quite some time since I've added anything here. I was overcome by events. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. So, let's start. Behold, the end tables, which I have as the main pic up above. They came out OK. One thing I'd like to add about Harbor Freight from my … Continue reading Updates
To be honest, I had no idea what this thing was called. I bought it cheap at Harbor Freight. and had to go look at the box to figure out anything about it. Here's the deal. I'm a tool snob.
