Time keeps moving

Wow, been a while. Life is busy busy busy. We started making our own bread, and our own yogurt, and our own tofu, and our own kombucha, and our own soap. Actually trying to do some yard work this year, too.

The tripod got her side cut up yesterday so we got to spend a couple hours last night at the emergency vet getting 6 stitches.

It’s weird to not have her bouncing off the walls.

And then, here’s some strange music:

Taking the background music away from the Village People make them sound pretty sad.

Surprisingly good listening

Changed the oil on the little yellow car and the wife’s good ol’ maxima last night. I really like how the Fit is set up–pull out the splash guard, and the oil pan and filter are right there. Not at all like the truck, which always makes me curse at Ford’s idiot engineers when I try to somehow get my hand up inside the engine bay to get the filter out. The maxima is also simple, though that is helped by how the splash guards have all been damaged to various degrees (it is 16 years old, after all) so it’s more accessible then it was as originally delivered.

Oh, the difference a word can make

Came out this morning to see this headline:


After a small double take, I realized that there was more to it:


Ah, that makes a bit more sense. Why Oprah is still in the news is something else entirely that I’m not going to bother with.

The things you learn on Wikipedia

The Soviet Union built a number of automated lighthouses powered by radioisotope thermoelectric generators in remote locations. They operated for long periods without external support with great reliability. However numerous installations deteriorated, were stolen, or vandalized. Some cannot be found due to poor record keeping.

From my uncle the mechanic:


The most telling fact I have about gun ownership in MT is that my super wacky liberal environmentalist sociology professor was also an avid hunter (and gun owner).

My latest favorite documentary

If you like baseball in any shape, you’ll probably like this. A very interesting and entertaining documentary about the Portland Mavericks, an independent single-A team in the 70’s (owned by Bing Russel, Kurt Russel’s dad and actor from a ton of westerns) when there were no other independent teams anywhere.

Had a nice credits song as well:

Weird Music Videos

Are weird.

I;m in the strange position that I don’t mind the music but I think the video itself is pretty much unwatchable. Like, WTF, man?
