"The cause of America is, in a great measure, the cause of all mankind." --Thomas Paine

  Somebody gave me this antique reed organ to restore.  My wife thinks I'm a little crazy.   To be honest, I might just be.  It is full of bugs, mold and mouse detritus.  The bellows are still functional.  I have yet to pull the reeds. the great part though, is how much nothing has been done to over the years.

This is 5 pounds of infant and toddler formula.  It cost us 70 dollars to purchase, and another 70 dollars to ship to our Sister in law.  China has really worked on the infant formula problem after the melamine scandal, they've involved  companies like Nestle to completely remake the milk-to-stable-food- product system.

... Tucking in the bees! We shall come reJOYcing! tucking in the bees...      I built two western boxes.  One to use as a winter feeder, and the other to use as a blanket box.    I put 5 pounds of simple fondant in the feeder. I'll check it every other week.  In mid February, I'll start adding protien p

Since the county jail and the courts can't seem to manage on the budget we voters have given them, perhaps it's time for an all-volunteer effort?  Or privatization.

I have to say, my mechanic would have earned his money.  I now have the ignition, plugs and fuel rail exposed and diagnosable.   Autozone has exahaustive repair guides online, which makes this alot easier.  If I followed one of those ten-dollar manuals, I'd be calling for a tow.  This used to be more fun before two c

After two months, we squeezed the liquid out of the fermented grapes and placed it in a sanitized carboy with an airlock: The airlock was still for about a week so we decided to bottle and taste it. If Wine Spectator had reviewed it, it would read something like this: “Notes of methanol and acetone scamper playfully

Actually, this is how all us peasants made their wine in the old days. The trouble with harvests is that you've got lots of something.  You need to keep it useful until you get lots more something next year.   In the case of fruit, one has to either dry it until the sugar reaches a concentration that inactivates ripenin

Behold the Ford Duratec 3.0 liter DOHC engine.  They put it in in lots of high-end Ford, Lincoln, Mazda, Jag, and Volvo products.  This particular one has given me 140,000 miles of trouble free service.   I have to say, it is nearly a work of art.  At mile 140,001 or so,  this one developed a "miss."  I

We went out of Depoe Bay yesterday for a bit of crabbing and fishing. The catch more than payed back our expenses. While storms were supposed to be likely, they didn't occur, and the sea was as quiet as I've ever seen. 14 legal fillets and 11 crabs. -A fine day in all. This handsome guy is a canary rockfish.

Gentle reader, I wish I had better news,  but  I didn't  expect to get it right the first time: So here's my bacon with a bit of the rind removed. The aroma is incredible. I don't even want to throw the rind away. I'll figure some way to use it. Here's some slices. Very pretty and no "off" odor

I think we will all find it refreshing to learn that, today, I'm not ranting about all the large children in our lovely city.  No!  It isn't just hard working Republicans and lunch pail Democrats who are afflicted by blood-suckers,  every productive species on earth has to deal with them! I went out to check my hiv

The dogs nearly barked themselves to death when I came out of the house in this.  The only protective gear I've ever used before this was a smoker.   These girls don't  know my resume, though.  I went to Glory Bee  this evening and bought the cheapest upper they had, and a decent pair of gloves.  I don't think

I used to tend bees at a resort when I was a young man.  The idea was to make the guests think our food was fresh and wholesome.  Everything was actually trucked in from Pittsburgh, and zorched in special ovens.   We did sell my honey in the various gift shops. I wanted to keep a hive at home at home but Mom always

Obama's minions are coming for you! From The Washington Times: Voter ID has gotten large amounts of media attention, but residents of rural areas are concerned about another identification issue that has remained largely ignored: chicken ID. If a chicken or cow takes a trip out of state, it had better have its papers. T

An activist, a Communist, a Muslim, and a bisexual walk into a bar: The barkeep asks, "What'll you have, Mr. President?" I just thought that that since that post, and all it's many retweets got deleted,  it needed to be preserved.

I've been studying Charcuterie, and I thought I'd try my hand at some bacon. This was just a trial of concept, so I kept the recipe simple and workmanly. Here's 4 pounds of loin end pork belly with the skin on.  With a very sharp blade, cut through skin to make a diamond pattern The cure

Like Stoaty says, there is now NOTHING your masters in DC can't make you do.  I'll now devote all my energy to improve our Nation's political class, hopefully get some of these sociopath cretins out of office, and rplace them with men and women of substance and virtue.  This blog will be deleted in 30 days.

  (I have GOT to get some of this stuff bottled up!)   I was on my way home after work last night, when my phone went off.  It was Missus, so I answered it.  "GET HERE!" She said with considerable urgency, and transmission stoped.  I was on that little bit of 30th street hill where my c

Ladies and gentlemen, it is strawberry season!  The ample rain, and cool temperatures have produced a bumper crop of killing-floor red, indescribably sweet berries with an aroma that's probably dangerous to breath. I bought a flat on Saturday.  I intended to make jam, but  I'm always too tired to do much on
