  1. Real Men: A List and A Lament

    Lately, I've been pretty disappointed with my once-proud gender. Sure generations ago were were violence-mongering *******s with tendencies to xenophobia and misogyny.

    But that stuff gets too much press these days. As a former boss of mine once said, "in lieu of the truth, people will always accept bad news as gospel". Now, men seem to be pathetic, lethargic, and overall undignified.

    Real Men:

    1. Work hard -- with their muscles, I mean. They ...
  2. How I Almost Stepped on a Fairly Large Bear. . ..

    I'm down stairs at my house -- probably checkin' my fantasy football team or reading a LitNet thread, when I hear a loud

    *crash, bang, tumble crash!*

    from the garage. I think something just fell off of one of the shelves. Maybe one of the kids' sleds.

    Anyway, it's gettin' time for me to go pick up the kids. So I walk up stairs and get my keys, wallet and phone and get read to go out the door.

    We stayed with my mom and her husband.

  5. Summer Project #2

    I also posted this in a thread in the General Chat forum. But I think it's a pretty good stand-alone blog too, so I put it here as well.

    Summer Project #2

    This summer I planned build a landscaping-block planter to, primarily, hide some unsightly septic vents in our yard. This project is now, more or less, complete. (The "more or less" means that we still have to add some plants, but the major construction is done).

    First I needed my toolbox ...
