12 hours

That’s how long I lasted…which to be fair was pretty good for me cause by 6 am on the 1st day, I had fantasized about spending quite a bit of money.  At 3 am it was 1 degree outside…and I was awake of course…so I went down the basement with the Infared thermometer One of […]

building a better bedstead

Since i have nothing better to do but wait around here, i am doing what i always do when i can’t think about what’s important…i think about things that are not important, i build things in my head.  This is habitual since i can’t afford to building things in the real world…perhaps one day. I […]

broken things

Took 10 minutes to fix a notebook today, and i used the iphone to photograph it and loaded it on Instructables. Shockingly this FIX is not there already. That’s probably the most satisfying thing i will do today. It’s a clear crisp day…not bad for an early mud season. Tomorrow i have a hike/trail clearing […]
