Last year I decided to join a 90 day video blog challenge. I quit/stopped/failed at it. I failed because I had no goal in mind for any content or any direction. I quit because I got bored with it. Do you struggle with long challenges? Start smaller. I started a new challenge for myself this week and it's only seven days. [ 71 more words ]
We took a mini drive this weekend. Made a stop at Tropical Exotic Hardwoods in Carlsbad, CA and picked up a piece of Spalted Tamarind. A lidded box may come from this. After the first stop we made our way towards Julian. On the way we stopped at Crossroads Treasures in San Ysabel and the boy got a nice polished geode. [ 58 more words ]
I was shaping some wood with an angle grinder. Instead of holding the grinder and rubbing it on the wood needing to be shaped, I mounted the grinder in a vise and help the wood. I would rub the wood against the spinning wheel of flesh ripping terror. Yes, I knew i shouldn't do it. I knew I should wear some gloves. [ 78 more words ]

This is a link post. This article was a good read on why more alternatives to Facebook would be a great thing. I personally live in my feed reader (I use feedly.com) Zuckerberg’s latest ideas probably won’t create a more “informed community.” The structure of Facebook works against that.

Does your car need brakes? Do you hear a little squeal when your foot is NOT on the brakes? almost like a little metal finger rubbing on a metal.

My neighbor needed help and they were low on funds so I did a quickie brake job for them before the problem became more expensive. [ 680 more words ]

Awesome April Fools prank by the Russian Foreign Ministry.
Not sure how valid this list is but it is quite interesting.
This is not what Freedom looks like. We aren’t a free people. We’ve become a bunch of authority-worshiping subjects toiling on a plantation dominated by multi-national companies who write our laws and manipulate our thoughts through corporate media. The worst part is we don’t do anything about it. We elect Trump and then puff our chests out yelling stupid slogans like MAGA, as molestations from the TSA get worse. Well done everyone.
