a week of wet...

The Field Lab - Sat, 2017/09/23 - 4:02pm
All stocked up and ready to hunker down for the next week.  Good news is the forecast has lightened up on the total accumulation expected.  That makes my road happy.  86,95,69, .29",B

clear water...

The water out of one of my 3,000 gallon catchment tanks already looks pretty good.  Tune in for tomorrow's friday night film for my 3 step treatment to make sure it is potable... 91,99,66,0,B

Every now and then someone asks me how I filter my rainwater for drinking.  After almost 10 years, I figured its about time I start drinking it.  I bought a filter system right before I broke my leg and I finally got around to setting it up today.  Does the same thing the fancy stainless steel Berkey system does at a fraction of the cost...$50 vs $300.  Video coming soon.  88,100,70,0,B

be careful for nothing

The Field Lab - Sun, 2017/09/17 - 1:39pm
Philippians 4:5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.  6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

the good ol' days...

The Field Lab - Thu, 2017/09/14 - 3:31pm

Recently, my friend Steve Hills from upstate NY posted a photo of the view from his office from a carpentry job he is working on which prompted me to dig up this old photo of when he was helping me rebuild my house after my fire in Spencertown.  Note: My front porch back there was almost twice the size of my house here.  95,103,71,0,T

Unplanned trip to Alpine today.  The biting flies were driving Ben nuts this morning so I went to fetch another bottle of Permethrin.  The concentrate gets diluted and is applied with a spray bottle.  Ben has yet to learn that the spray bottle is his friend.  I have to chase him around to kill those pesky flies.  The good news is, fly season will be over in about a month.  95,102,58,0,B

Recover Yourself

The Field Lab - Sun, 2017/09/10 - 1:56pm
2 Timothy 2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,  25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;  26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

the pesky algorithm...

The Field Lab - Sat, 2017/09/09 - 3:42pm
A lot of YouTubers have rightfully been on a rant lately about YouTube's new overly zealous politically correct algorithm that targets videos it deems "not suitable for all advertisers".  This began in early August after the ad-apocalypse that happened in March .  I just got the dreaded yellow dollar sign again on yesterday's upload.  This has happened on 4 of my videos now.  Two of them were released after I requested a manual review and my "skinning a rattlesnake" video is still barred from any further advertising revenue.  Every one of my videos is well within their Advertiser-friendly content guidelines  - but this new process has a twist to it.  Once a video is flagged by their system, they will not do a manual review (actually have a human assess the content) unless the video gets over 1,000 views in 7 days.  Hopefully, "how the day ends" will get reviewed and pass so I can make a few dollars off of it.  Stay tuned...  83,86,66,0,B

A neighbor down south of me just happened to bring a tractor out to work on his place over Labor Day weekend.  He had to fix the road before he could get past with his trailered rig.  86,90,65,0,B
