I was asked recently if I wanted an old desk from my neighbor. I am a sucker for old furniture and could not resist. I am also a sucker for Vinyl and stereo cabinets. Stereo cabinets are a throw back to a time when electronics were not just functional, but […]
In my last post I walked through prepping and painting the table.
I have finally gotten the whole table put together. I was able to find a great belt that works and I tested the saw last night. It all works!! I am going to try and make a […]
In my last post I showed how I broke down the table and the condition of what I was working with:
To prep the table for reconditioning, I used Goo-Gone and 400 grit sandpaper on the all the legs, motor housing and anything with paint on it to scuff […]
I had the good fortune of being offered a table saw by my father in law. I was and still am very grateful for the gift. I love my saw. He told me it had been in the outside garage and was in rough shape- but the motor was still […]
I make fun of people who don’t eat meat. I eat bacon and burgers because I am a man and it is my right to eat animals. Men who do not eat meat are weak and unable to care for themselves or others. People who choose to be vegans or […]
Well its been 4 months with my SFG. Let’s see what we learned.
I will say that I could not imagine how much fun I have been having with growing my own food.The fact that so far I have yielded only a few peppers, some peas and a carrot is of little consequence to me. I have been learning about what to do and what not to do regarding my garden.
I have been working hard to get all of the posts from GBFSE over to the blog. I will also be updating the links on the site with all of the info I have gathered about training over the last year.
I will also be updating new posts as I […]
I set out to create a garden and grow my own food for many reasons. The least of those was to prove I could do it. One of the most important reasons was so that I knew where my food was coming from and didn’t have to depend on the local HEB to provide my family sustenance.
Well…. It has been months since I have posted. I have been focused on my goals and not as much on keeping everyone up to speed. I started this journey with a BHAG and I reached the point this last week of achieving as much of my goal as I want. I […]
I find myself being entirely too fractured during the day and I need to limit my distractions and make sure I am most effective for my team. The first thing I am going to try is not checking email all day, all the time. I learned that everyone needs to turn off their phones from beeping with each new alert.

Obligatory Picture of Me
Taking Life Apart- What Does That Mean?I have decided to talk more about what I want and not just what I do at work. I have had a fascination since I was a child with understanding how things work. I would and still do- dismantle things to see how they work. I believe I have begun to do this with my life experience in my writing. So- here is my attempt at explaining the world I have been tearing apart in order to live my life.
