Living a mythic life…

Friday, December 30th, 2011

===It is interesting how myth informs the aware, and will let you know when you are acting properly or not.  Few know this quite as…directly…as those of an elven persuasion. ===I know in my own life, I tend to get hints when I am acting properly…lines of synchronicity happen more, for example. It seems that [...]

Measure of seasons

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

===Today was the first morning of frozen water bottles for the rabbits.  ===To be fair, it was more the first morning of the outer hutches water bottles being totally frozen, but still, it is a mark of the cold coming in, a more sure sign that winter has really begun to flex its’ coldness into [...]

Goblin Markets…

Friday, November 25th, 2011

===Just letting a bunch of my friends know: Goblin Markets is on sale.  Go HERE for it.  (For those who are not aware of it, Deliria was an awesome game done developed by Phil Brucato, that was meant to be “Changeling done right”.  I would say he succeeded.  This is the long-awaited supplement for it. [...]

===Ok, I was going to title this something else, but then I suddenly had a kitten in my lap. ===I have things working pretty well with Sabayon…finally got Enlightenment to work properly. (erased the first config file for it, and re-started it.  It wrote a new one up, and that has been doing great.) There [...]

Computers stuff….

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

===Finally found something I wanted to have running on the laptop for a while…I decided to test out Sabayon Linux , and I have to say I am rather pleased with the results.  it takes a while to install (it is based off of Gentoo Linux…so it compiles a lot of the programs to suit [...]

Cooking waffles!

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

Used my Griswold cast iron waffle iron today for the second time (first time successfully.) the waffles came out great. I snagged this somewhere (lost website) and adapted it to here.  Waffles Ingredients … * 2 cups milk * 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast (2 1/2 teaspoons) * 1/2 cup warm water (110 [...]

Jamming…I am Jamming…

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

===Ok, I just finished Jamming….between yesterday and today, I have made 14 jars of Jalapeno jam ( http://www.pickyourown.org/pepper_jelly.htm ) would be where I got the recipe.  Definitely check the site out, it also tells you how to make your own pectin…. ===Next time I might actually wear gloves.  My hands are actually not bad, I [...]

Snow for Hallows…

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

===Well, just about Hallows.  As folks on the East Coast are noting, we have snow.  Just in time for my Anniversary. (chuckles) ===I just barely got things to a place that they could be considered ready for this.  I have the coop chicken-habitable…still have some improvements to make, but for this storm, it is good [...]

I have been…Kittened.

Monday, October 24th, 2011

===So, I was driving along a back country road to get to a hardware shop.  Some reasonably large animal (bigger than a squirrel or a groundhog, smaller than a deer) does a damned good attempt at making sure I see it from a reasonable distance…so I slow down.  It is a rather large cat, about [...]

So far, so good…a fine Autumnal flow…

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

===Well, it has been an active one, and it has been an active one for a number of folks I know.  I am not really up for going into my own metaphysic thoughts on it as of yet, other than to say it seems to be one of long-standing issues coming to a head that [...]
