With winter cold coming quick and my cigar out building not being big enough for the friends and neighbors that drop by for cigars once a week, it was time to build something bigger. I originally wanted a larger out building but that was going to take time and was going to be more than I really needed. I opted for using the upper part of my garage that was just storage. 12 x 36 feet in all. By partitioning it I could still keep some storage, and have a nice space I could enclose and heat to use as a cigar room. The cigar room itself would be 12 x 18‘ While it’s not huge, it should be plenty…

This year I was signed up to do a few 5k's, but we signed up first and then found out the dates, times, and locations. Well, of course, each one would fall on a date when the local guys would get together. So I scratched on every race and really didn't do much running at all. Jogging, yes. I did quite a few 5k trail runs on my own. My first no excuse run-a-virtual-5k came up. I ran it on the treadmill. Finishing time was: 30:26 I was hoping to break the 30 minute mark but kicked up the speed a minute or two too late to make up the time. Three days later my legs still are sore! I…

Poured myself two fingers of Chicken Cock (words I never thought I would say) grabbed an Excalibur and hit the deck. Suffered through a short sprinkle but was not deterred.  Been enjoying the longer smokes lately. Good pairing. The bourbon has a honey flavor to it and goes down smooth. The coffee notes of the cigar really come out with the bourbon. Chicken Cock Bourbon

So I'm roughly a week into using this device I've been having a lot of fun scanning myself. Something satisfying about doing that and seeing your blood sugar and how your body is reacting to certain foods, or even no food at all. Blood Sugar Spike Your body reacts differently to foods depending on what you have been eating. I was on a low carb diet and put some maple syrup into my coffee to sweeten it and see how I reacted. Big spike! But that was on low carb. I tried a higher carb diet for a few days and did the maple syrup again. Barely a bump. Must have been because the insulin was there and ready to…

I decided it was time to step up my reverse osmosis game and leave my home built version and get myself a professionally built, but still hobby, maple sap RO. I still have my personal version and it works great, but just too slow... I need to run it overnight most of the time and when I do, sometimes the pump will run dry. I'm pretty sure I ruined last seasons pump. I haven't tested it, but I recall it not working very well at the end of the season (if at all). This version will still get my sap up to 8 brix but at a blazing 50 gallons per hour versus my 50 gallons per day! I picked…

I had a few people ask where I heard about the Nutrisense Glucose Monitor and app that I've been writing about lately. Honestly, it was on the Brad Kearns podcast I was listening to one day and this company was on as a guest. Basically a simple type of advertisement where the company spoke about their product, the benefits, and well, I was sold. After buying the product, I sat there and thought of all the other products I had been introduced to through listening to my favorite podcasts. Talk about perfect targeted advertising! Here I am listening to a podcast about things I enjoy, the host is speaking with a relevant companies' CEO, and I enjoy it enough to…
