Looking at 2019

Blog, Home, Woodworking

I was done with 2018 a while ago and wrote my thoughts about it for my birthday. I’ve spent the past month treating it like a new year and actually prepping for the new year. I like to tell people I’m not big on resolutions and that I prefer to constantly be improving myself and […]

Growth Rulers

Basement, Blog, Home, Woodworking

This project was about a year in the making. Last Christmas, Ellie and I had a niece and two nephews to buy for and there was another on the way and a fifth would come into the picture a little later. Daunted by the prospect of having to buy gifts for several kids, we came […]

Whole House Humidifier

Basement, Blog, Home

I have dry, itchy skin. My wife has dry, itchy skin. Our dog has dry, itchy skin. Our cat, well she’s the odd one out. Every winter it is the same. I get really dry and really itchy. We also get static shocks just looking at each other, or maybe we just still have that […]

Becoming Better at Woodworking

Basement, Blog, Home, Woodworking

I’m not professionally trained in most of the things that I do. Despite this fact, there are things I think I do exceptionally well. For example, I have never been trained to cook but I have put in thousands of hours studying cooking shows and practicing with meals and now I’d consider myself a decent, […]

Pegboard shelves

Basement, Blog, Home, Woodworking

Do you clean your stove, I mean like really, really clean your stove only to turn around ten minutes later and there’s food splattered on it and a splash of pasta sauce even though you didn’t make pasta sauce? That’s kind of how my whole life is when it comes to cleaning. I love the […]

Wheels and things


Wheels seem to be beyond my grasp. I have written two papers this week and have one to go. I also have an exam. I am doing quite well, thank you very much. I finally got a night off this week. Just a heads up, I think I am going to take the strip in […]

Three is one too many


I drank three 16oz. cans of energy drink today within the matter of about three hours. I am good to go. Comments are being diabled on old blog entries here and there due to excessive spamming for those entries. Sorry if you wish to add to those. Though, I doubt anyone will. My lack of […]

Two short means of procrastination


A couple of items. First, i just want to let everyone know that my comics might start to look a little different. I managed to ruin my second Crwo Quill in roughly two monthes. I have not had time to get a new one, so I switched to a Speedball B-5 which has a much […]

My post for today is brief. Today’s comic is number 100 in the books. It seems like it took a long time to get here, but its a big hurdle to pass.

Course loaded


I know I have been going against my golden rule of blogging (maybe two golden rules of blogging). I haven’t posted in a month because I have been swamped with reading for class. As it turns out, taking three english classes in one semester along side two other reading intensive classes is not the best […]

Ms. Johnston


When a comic writer creates a strip for the first time, they need to make a decision. Should they, or should they not age their characters. Off the top of my head I can thing of only three that actually age their characters; Least I Could Do, Funky Winkerbean and For Better or For Worse. […]

A return


It is official. I no longer need to go to coffee shops to check the internet. Nor do I want to go to work because I can check my email from home. I hate spam comments. A lot. Never leave comments unchecked for two weeks. It took me about twenty minutes to delete them all. […]

Glitch in the system


I managed to find some internet. Granted I had to ride all the way down State Street to find it (not that I needed to, but I had a few errands to run). I have been moved in for over a week and my apartment is still without internet. For those of you in my […]

MIA, maybe


I would like to let you know that I might be MIA in the next week or so. I move in tomorrow and it will take some time to set things back up. I also will not have internet in my place before Wednesday. It is going to be rough. If for some reason the […]

AT&T Supreme


Just to follow up on my previous post. We are no longer subscribing from Charter. Thanks to Carolyn we were informed of AT&T and decided it would be better. Comics are done through Friday, which is good because I move in that day. I am not sure how I feel about this week’s story, I […]
