关于Joel

你知道,你不应该问一个偏执的隐士这些问题。

S&W左轮手枪上的红点安装…

关于我的第三手69型车,让我感到高兴的一件事是,在重新设计时,S&W的远见足以将售后市场的可能性考虑在内。我在一个叫EGW&hellip的网站上找到了一个转接板; 继续阅读 →

现在我们开始…

哦,我一直在等这个。昨天下午晚些时候收到了电子邮件,刚骑完自行车进城回来。射击领主们,请不要让我把事情搞砸,因为……我要放一个红点… 继续阅读 →

“亚历克斯·琼斯是你寻找真实新闻的地方,而美国有线电视新闻网则是你寻找无耻阴谋论的地方。”

我在做早餐的时候听到一个播客在我耳边播放这句话,在我把它弄丢之前,我冲过去把它写了下来。它几乎封装了我一直试图包装的颠倒的世界… 继续阅读 →

It’s beginning to look a lot like Moscow…

The bread shelf at the crappy little market in the crappy little town nearest where I live… Glad I bake my own, though of course the price of flour is going the way of all things. The rise in the … 继续阅读 →

The internet is not drunken-redneck-proof. For the record.

So shortly after I posted the below, my connection to the outside world abruptly went away. I live down in a hollow in the middle of the wilderness, nowhere near line-of-sight of any cell tower. Until a couple of years … 继续阅读 →

He’s never ever gonna hear the end of this…

Yup. I’ve been dad to a daughter. I got things this wrong on a fairly regular basis.

Reduce Reuse Recycle?

It’s funny: The political climate in this country has gotten so toxic that even ‘living green’ has an element of hostility to it. I’m kind of living the stereotypical green dream, but I imagine that your average greenie would rather … 继续阅读 →

Shadow and the Water Well

I was futzing around in my desk drawer last night and came up with a thumb drive that had gotten smooshed to the back. Had no idea what was on it. Among other things were a bunch of stories I … 继续阅读 →

Hot showers forever!

Or until that expensive water pressure system’s sudden but inevitable betrayal, in any case. I’m quite pleased with myself this morning. Right now the only thing in Ian’s place that uses propane is the water heater. Gas to the kitchen … 继续阅读 →

What’s a ‘degradation bag?’

I have questions. ‘Breast milk bag’ is self-explanatory, I suppose. But is a bag really the best container for that application? And why do people keep sending me this absolutely hopeless spam? Can’t say it often enough: I’m a desert … 继续阅读 →

These damned things…

I had quite a number of big tumbleweed-gathering sessions in April, trying to clear my yard of them. Unfortunately April generally marks the start of the windy season, this one was exceptional, and of course tumbleweeds are really only famous … 继续阅读 →

Well I suppose it’s a matter of taste, Tobie…

Brought home everything I needed for a nice pot of spaghetti. Opened a can of sauce, poured it into the saucepan, and after scraping out the can I gave it to Tobie. Little Bear loved to clean the sauce can. … 继续阅读 →

Of course they still have horses…

…and horses eat a lot. Expensively, if there’s nowhere they can graze. So… …midmorning found me at D&L’s barn, helping unload and stack yet another pallet of pellets. Nice morning for it.

On living till you die

Yesterday D&L gave me first refusal on a big pile of dog stuff they’re getting rid of since they plan on never having another dog. I suggested they might want to defer that decision for a few months, because nearly … 继续阅读 →

A sad day at D&L’s

They lost both their dogs in less than a month. Just got back from helping them bury the second one. They were both quite old: The female had been sick for a while, got much worse and they euthanized her … 继续阅读 →

Solar water heater update

A sentence virtually never spoken concerning my attempts at improvised infrastructure is “It works too well.” In this case it originally worked so well it destroyed itself, repeatedly, so really didn’t work at all – at least never for very … 继续阅读 →

About time, Joel…

Sweartagod, every propane system upgrade goes like this. This fitting/hose/pipe/whatever doesn’t fit. Wait a week, get the right part (alternate version: Wait a week, get the wrong part.) That hurdle cleared, move on to the next fitting/pipe/hose/whatever. Which won’t fit. … 继续阅读 →

猜错了。快把屁股冻掉。

这是一个异常凉爽的五月。我并不特别反对,但通常到现在春风已经减弱了。相反,它一直在继续,事实上,它一直是早上第一件事… 继续阅读 →

我讨厌煤气配件。

斯瓦塔戈德,在我背叛了革命,把自己定为终身总统之后,这里会有一些变化。我每次都会经历这些。我想做的就是更换伊恩丙烷上的单一调节器; 继续阅读 →
