This is the post excerpt.



Hehe…  decided not to commute this time.  Had a three week contract out of town.  Found a place to park, bought a tent at Goodwill, and tested my pockit kitchin after 3 days of heavy rain.


(Hey look, ma!  I’m glampin’!)

Shalom!  Welcome to my page.  Not sure what it’s doing here, but I was having trouble getting into a friend’s site, and the darned program wanted me to sign up to do it.  lol  There was probably an easier way (and most likely quite simple) to see it, but I’m a backwards sort and not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to techno toys…

But, maybe… maybe, Yah willing, this thing can be of use later… For right now though, it’s established.  That is, if the whole thing doesn’t crash while the thunder and lightning is having it’s usual discussion over my head.

(unplugs everything that could be affected by an uninvited power surge)

That’s ok.  Got the apartment re-aranged for the new pellet stove that’s going in at some point.  I picked up some cilantro, and probably should process it real quick.  And there’s squash!  Rosehips are almost ready (I got one this morning), and I took a good part of the mint for an infusion.  It had already gone to seed anyway…  a hurry up quick day, because I’ve got shifts coming up that are 10-12 hours a day, bouncing from one contract to another.  This year will be ending with work in health care, bindery work, and the harvest.  So, if you don’t hear from me for a few weeks (or maybe by March/Adar), it’s because I’m either training for my pack test in some warehouse, or crawled under a rock.  lol

Thoughts for this page… HaShem.  Always Abba first.  Foraging…  fishing!  Hunting (still learning), gardening, book repair.  Wildcraft, sewing, and various other strange projects…  Trade, work (six days, then Shabbat!  XD), and recycling on a ridiculous scale.  Scripture studies and home worship.  And old cars that keep morphing into some GMO byproduct when I’m board.  The occasional State of the Universe Rant.  Vintage memories with pop quizes…

The Feast Days!  Halleluyah!  (geek dance)

Suggestions welcome and encouraged.  Content disclaimer – guaranteed to dismay and annoy.  You’re welcome to stay, as long as ya’all behave.  You don’t have to agree, but you don’t have to take it personally either.  lol

Have a nice day.  XD


Vote? — Congregation Simchat Emet

When either candidate available to you at the polls goes against Biblical Principals, should you vote for them? Isn’t “lesser of 2 evils” still evil? Is the refusal to vote en masse a “protest vote” or just “contributing to the other side”? Well, stop and think about this for a moment – seriously now. What would happen […]

Still looking for Intern in Jewish History — Henry Abramson

Thanks to all the parents who submitted their children’s names as candidates for the Internship in Jewish History. Unfortunately, I can only consider applications from people who are willing to take the job. Here’s the revised job description: Intern in Jewish History: Hard work, long hours, meager compensation. Chance at everlasting fame and glory, promoting […]

Egg Drop Soup — Retro Recipe Attempts

Feeling the pinch of the Depression? Let’s cook some more with Clara and you won’t feel so bad. I seriously love these videos. What I found interesting about this was that I typically associate Egg Drop Soup with Chinese cooking (or, at least, Chinese restaurants). Apparently there are European versions as well, which isn’t surprising […]

Molasses Milkshake — Retro Recipe Attempts

The semester is over and (as expected) I’m feeling completely drained. The last few weeks of graduate-level classes are always intense, and this year was no exception. I’ve got an excellent reason for being exhausted, of course, although it may not be the one this old advertisement thinks. It’s a well-established medical fact that, at […]
