Blog, Gardening, Home, Outside

I think we are finally past the wintry weather in Wisconsin. At least I hope so because recently I planted the garden for the year. In one fell swoop, I put the fate of my harvest in hands of nature. Oh lord, what have I done? This time last year, planting was much more of […]

Greenhouse Lights

Blog

I’m not the most precise gardener. I like to let things grow their own way. Weeds happen, and I pull them as needed. But once the plants are in the ground, I do my best to keep them from dying but it’s a day-to-day process. One of my friends, Geoff, keeps all the data on […]

Replacing Garage Door Opener

Blog, Home, Outside

One of the many things that came up in our home inspection prior to closing on the house was that the garage was in need of some love. More specifically, the home inspector told us that it was built using methods not up to modern day levels of quality craftsmanship and he didn’t know how […]

Video of Mid-Century Modern End Table Refinishing

Blog, Home, Living Room, Woodworking

When Ellie found the $5 MCM end table at Goodwill and asked me to refinish it, I got a bit giddy. I really enjoy refinishing old pieces of furniture and bringing new life into them. It started years ago when I bought an old radio and fixed it up for Ellie as a Christmas present. […]

Blog, Home, Living Room, Woodworking

Sometimes, things just were meant to be and you don’t question the why or the how. That’s just the way it is. When it comes to restoring a mid-century modern end table my wife found at Goodwill, I didn’t question the why or the how. I just knew I needed to do it. Let me […]

Comments!

As you may have noticed, commenting is now available for the blog posts. I hope this is used as intended and there is no spam to be had. Though if there is, I can always enhance it to avoid spam and pointless talk. I also have built in a way for me to delete comments […]

Buffering


Blog

Turns out buffers can come in handy. My current comic buffer runs out on Wednesday. Which is timed perfectly with the end of my exams and papers due for this time of the semester. I have been so swamped lately that I have not had any time to draw more comics. I had one from […]

Sanity


Blog

I have not had as much time lately as I would have liked to work on the site, though I am slowly progessing through my tasks. Time is better spent at the moment catching up on my vast amounts of reading for class. Supposedly if I do well on things called exams I will, in […]

Making the move


Blog

Just thought I would let you know that the comics are now being updated every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I have multiple reasons for making the change. First, with updating only twice a week I had a buffer of four weeks. Second, this relates to the first, I like to be able to relate my […]

Change we can believe in


Blog

I saw Senator Obama speak last night, it was moving. He talks of great change, not coming solely from him but from the people. He knows that things do not happen over night, but he knows that anything is possible in time. He emphasizes his own past when he speaks. How he started with nothing […]

My bad, changes to come


Blog

First off, I want to apologize for the comic not being updated like it should have. It should update automatically at midnight eastern time. But there was a little problem with my code that didn’t add the comics for me. It has been fixed and it shouldn’t happen again. Secondly, I want everyone to know […]
