===Thresholds has passed, and apparently was good for a lot of folks.  Yay. ===It seems there was some drama that someone decided to tack onto me before my event AGAIN. (sighs) Thankfully, a few folks had a chat with the person in question so that I did not need to deal with it. ===So, let [...]

A nifty link, and a line of conversation that grew from it that is not really related….

RFD is a reader written journal for gay people which focuses on country living and encourages alternative lifestyles. /////////////////////////////////////// ===Finding the above actually led to an interesting tangent of conversation, reflecting on how some folks that I have encountered do some of the things I do, but there is little reason to think that they [...]

Cooling, Electricity, and Assumptions

===We finally got a ladder for using in the house….which has made a big difference in the house temperatures. ===Our house has been designed reasonably well, I like to think.  One of the designs is that the bedrooms have very high, angled ceilings with north-facing clerestory windows rather high up.  They can be opened up, [...]

One more week….

===Walking the Thresholds is next week. ===Folks have been registering: thank you!  ===Anyone have any last-minute workshop offerings or requests? ===And, as always…the general note: ===”Walking the Thresholds is run by Rialian.  If you have issues with him that have you on bad terms with him (and this takes a bit of work), please do [...]

And the Summer rolls in…

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

===Summer is definitely here…very warm, and the dewpoint is really high. (dew forms at 68 degrees today…erg.  Way to high a humidity). ===So I got my bread baking done early, so that the kitchen will have some chance to cool a bit before the heat really hits. (This evening I am coking up a roast.  [...]

Still life with bunnies 2, the education continues…

===Well, FooFoo has apparently figured out how sex works.  He has not sufficently engaged with Little Bunny (who is not so little anymore) that it was time to remove him from her cage, or she was going to beat him soundly about the head.  FooFoo is now showing his newly-gained skills with Harmony. ===I am [...]

My life…a snapshot (still life with bunnies 1).

“Maybe the rabbit is a virgin…he has not had the advantage of magazines, or sex advice shows….” ===You see, my wife has an interesting sense of humor.  She is telling me that my proper job is chaperoning the rabbits to ensure they have sex, as I was not taken up in the rapture. ===So, I [...]

Erg…(food allergens)

Friday, May 20th, 2011

===Ok, I must remember to not eat anything made with soft-white bread…such as rolls for subs, when out and about.  I just got up from one of my “soy coma” experiences, brought on by a chicken cheese-streak I picked up while picking up the cold cuts for sandwiches.  The sandwich had no mayo, so I [...]

Ah, the “Rapture”….

===As I have seen a number of folks considering pranks for tomorrow in the Untied States, might I make a suggestion? ===When you are putting out shoes and clothes with dry ice in them to make them steam, put various pagan symbols on them.  There should also be a note nearby, preferably with gilt edging [...]

Gadening tactics…

===Well, it looks like I have a day or three of non-deluge, so I get to get more stuff done for the garden. ===I have cardboard to get, so I can finish the sheet-mulching of the paths between the rows of corn I planted. ===I also want to get a large raft of soilblocks started [...]
