New Additions

Recently got a puppy for the cat to play with.

He is a Bishon-Yorkie (should end around 10 lbs) and is named Zeus.

I also obtained an inexpensive accessory for the truck …

I am closing in on actually finishing Heather’s Library/Studio


First Project Video posted to my YouTube Channel

About a month later than I intended, but I did post my first Project Video on my YouTube Channel.

It is too long, but I try to roughly cover the steps involved in completing my Outdoor Brush Burning Stove.

Most importantly, I wanted to cover the common flaw I uncovered in many of these builds.

Here are my Instagram Posts for this Project …




My second project video will be about recovering from this set back and the finishing touches.



Gathering materials for this years big project ...

This weekend I checked out one of the Habitat for Humanity - ReStore locations in Leesburg, VA and picked up a few things.

I found three chrome lamps that might be good for “the build” …

I also picked up a three legged jobvise. It is half-clamp and half-saw horse.

I look forward to trying this thing out.

I also got a great deal on 100 x 10 foot Galvanized Steel Framing Studs. I basically paid half retail.

Overall I felt the store had too much furniture and not enough building materials.

While Christmas shopping I ran into a couple of deals that were two good to pass up on iems I knew I would be needing for “the build” at some point.

I grabbed a 2nd Generation ChromeCast for $15 on eBay. And an NFC Smart Dead-bolt for securing “the build”. I also grabbed an approprately sized first aid kit.

Last but not least I set aside a few items I already had laying around.

Today, I ordered a couple of items from Amazon for “the build” and for a project here at the house. I’ll post again when those come in.

What is this all about ... 

2004 IC CE-Series 29 Passenger School Bus

Dungeons & Dragons and the swing join the National Toy Hall of Fame.

PBS calls D&D a “fantasy board game” in the true tradition of getting nothing correct in an article involving the original Role Playing Game. Either way, it and this stupid little thing from before 500 B.C. (the swing) get some credit today.

In honor of the event, here is a picture of some of our old games.
