12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?  28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Checking the serial number in the Elgin database, this movement I just got working again was manufactured in 1917 - one year before the great influenza pandemic of 1918.  60,69,53,0,B

12 broken pocket watch movements.  After close examination, 4 are pretty much worthless, 5 are good for parts, and 3 show some promise of working again as is.  But I am going to have to tear them down / clean all the parts / and reassemble them.  My watchmaker toolkit arrives next week.  Anyone have an ultrasonic cleaner they would like to donate to TFL?  83,92,68,0,B

Mini Seed Exchange-Shelter With Seeds

Home Grown New Mexico - Wed, 2020/04/01 - 6:36am

Open for the entire month of April. Hours: Daily during daylight hours only

As many of our local seed sharing events were canceled this season we are hoping to facilitate some seed exchange in our community now at the start of the growing season.   Many seed companies are maxed out right now trying to fulfill orders. Planting and producing local food and pollen sources is super important right now and the activity of planting is soothing for the soul.

Seeds can be brought to and taken from the SEED SHELTER through the month of April. People can come and go as they like during daylight hours.

THE SHELTER WITH SEEDS is located at Earth Nurse at the northwest corner of Burro Lane and Quail View off West Alameda. It is adjacent to Burro Lane Park at 3801 Quail View Lane. Please park on the street and use pathways across the field. It is roofed but open sided with plenty of fresh air and shade for the seeds. Earth nurse was stewarded by the Swentzell Family before us and the Pinde Pueblo people who raised turkeys here in pre-historic times.

The SHELTER is unstaffed and we ask you keep it tidy and cover and secure all seeds when done.

BRING ALL YOUR OWN SUPPLIES: baggies, envelopes, pens, hand sanitizer etc.

Please bring viable labeled seeds to share in rodent proof containers such as jars. Seed packets can be sorted by category in the boxes inside the bins.


MAINTAIN physical distance from others. One party at a time in the shelter.

PRACTICE top notch hygiene: sanitize (bring your own) hands before and after handling seeds.

BRING seeds you have to share. Please label and secure in rodent proof bin or glass jar.

TAKE only what you will ACTUALLY PLANT this season.

RESPECT adjacent residences and stay clear of them.

SAVE open pollinated seeds from your crops to share in the future.

Local nurseries are still open as essential businesses! Patronize them for supplies and additional seed.

SHARE your garden results with everyone #shelterwithseeds

Doing a supply run to Alpine tomorrow to stock up for 6 weeks of sequestering at TFL.  I suggest you all do the same and plan on hunkering down where you are.  This is only going to get worse.  If you have vacation plans - cancel them for the good of us all.  Don't be a Covid-19 denier.   72, 84,47,0,B

I see a lot of people asking for prayers to bless all the people of the earth during this pandemic.  The problem is - God does not answer the prayers on the behalf of those that have rejected Him.  For believers - you must ask for guidance in helping to lead those who deny Him.  Ask not for blessings, but for the ability to lead the unbelievers to Christ and to turn away from Satan before it is too late for them.  Isaiah 30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord:

Be a watchman...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2020/03/22 - 4:10pm
Ezekiel 33:7 “Now, son of man, I am making you a watchman for the people of Israel. Therefore, listen to what I say and warn them for me. 8 If I announce that some wicked people are sure to die and you fail to tell them to change their ways, then they will die in their sins, and I will hold you responsible for their deaths. 9 But if you warn them to repent and they don’t repent, they will die in their sins, but you will have saved yourself.

Tesla Watch

The Field Lab - Sat, 2020/03/21 - 4:23pm

Definitely a novelty item but somewhat collectable now as they were only made for a few years.  They originally sold for 50 - 75 bucks and mint condition ones are going for 150 - 250 now.  Got this one off ebay for $40.  Cosmetically it is in great condition but it needs fresh batteries and a new switch lever for the lights.  Hoping to repair it and at least double my money.  60,67,51,0,B
