I don’t know how I pissed him off, but somehow the eBay God is angry with me. I imagine the eBay God resembles a person that was tarred, but instead of feathered, ran around a second hand store and came out covered in what ever was lying around. Atari games and all... So I put on this nice RC car that I built with all kinds of goodies with it.  Sell it for 1/2 its value.  It's a steal.  Sold in 10 minutes.  Do I get paid?  Nope. Guy asks if I can wait until next week until he gets paid so he can pay for it.  Listen, if you can't afford it now, you can't buy it.  You shouldn't…

So last year many of you will remember that I got big into Maple Syrup.  What you may not know is that I tried my hand at it the year prior also (Spring of 2017) and made roughly a gallon of syrup using only a stock pot and single burner.   It was hard, I had very little idea on what I was doing (Let's just boil down this sugary water...  Easy right?), I'm pretty sure I didn't know what filtering was, nor bottling properly.  Despite all of this, I was determined to enter it in my local fair, and enter I did! Disqualified! Disqualified?  On taste?  Well now, I thought it tasted just fine but who am I to…

I figured Amazon was taking too long for beer delivery on demand so instead of waiting, I embraced the American Dream of invention and created my own micro-delivery service.   For now the beer delivery service is just between my neighbor and myself.  I may add another neighbor for 100% growth next quarter, but for now the dividends of this corporation is being paid by a return beer.  I drop off a beer and a different one returns back.  I like this arrangement.  Enjoy the video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6BA_LY4qXA The initial test flight of Carter's Beer Delivery Service Beer Delivery Complete!

For us, there is no better way to spend our time than hanging around the lake.   We had some new doors installed and they needed to be painted.  Some sort of a dark brownish grey.  Looks almost black in the photo, but they're not.  Matches our screen/storm doors.   I had to run back to the office - I replaced a few door knobs upstairs so they would match downstairs.  I only got around to doing three of them, and with two left to do, I let Cat (the Mrs) do the other two.  I told her she would fumble a bit but would figure it out.  This is the story I was retold when I got back up…

Where to start... Came home at lunch and saw the chickens just walking around the coop. Something got it again and well, the chickens got out of their run. Went down and only saw two of the 6. Then slowly they came out from hiding until they were all accounted for! No idea. The run fence was torn open, but my feisty chickens all lived. Promptly ran down to the hardware store and purchased more chicken fence and put it up. Also put up some rabbit fence. It was also needed. The house we put an offer in on for a rental fell through. They got a better offer. That's fine. Wasn't going to work at a higher number for…
