Shifting my Hobby Focus

It was cold. Well, it’s winter, so that’s not surprising. What was surprising was I was bored. Not a thing on TV. Nothing to do but veg on the couch with my laptop looking at cute puppy pictures on Facebook. I was getting cabin fever, and it was reaching critical mass. Why was I so bored? What did I do before in the winter to keep my sanity?Well. I built airplanes. Beautiful scale model RC airplanes. A P-40 Warhawk modeled after the valiant fighters of the Philippines. A Robert Taylor Hawker…See More

Austin City Limits Brown Out Brown Sabbath

   A few months ago i heard an interesting interview with the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne.  He was ranting and raving about a Latin Psychedelic funk band that combines Latin, Jazz, Psychedelic Funk and heavy metal.  Brown Out put out an album last year "Brown Out Presents Brown Sabbath", fusing Black Sabbath classics with a Latin Twist.  After hearing the interview i searched them on youtube and became an instant fan.  Last night i took the wife and my two teens and one of their friends…See More

My Coldest Winter ... Ever!

This is by far the coldest winter I have ever been through, and I’ve been through 75 of them. Although I can’t vouch for the first three or four because I don’t remember too much about them. Actually I've only been through 74 ½ of them. This one ain’t over yet, and the last 3-4 years have brought us some pretty nasty snow storms in March.Now snow I can deal with, I live in the greater Lake George resort area about 100 miles below the Canadian border, and snow not only makes beautiful winter…See More

Vegetable garden favorites

Green Peppers low to no heat Ghost peppers the hottest I grow.  Scotch bonnets are probably my favorites with Habanero next and love Thai peppers I buy at Jungle Jims locally. I use my smoker and smoke the peppers using apple wood or Pecan wood. They last for years.Love them in sauces crushed on spaghetti sauce. wife cannot stand the heat.Keep trying others but fall back to the favorites.  Scotch bonnets are my newest addition.   Great with tomatoes salads heat and sweet.See More

When my nephew was about two and a half, we began no notice that he had a peculiar habit. He would arrange his cars in size order. When you changed the order of the cars, He would quickly change the cars back order from smallest to largest.

Soon after, we began to notice that everything in his room had an order, whether it was books, stuffed animals or…
