Larken demonstrates how to share the concepts of anarchy to statists at a Candles In The Dark conference.

I have found this mushroom growing in my backyard before but haven’t identified it yet.
I know that I’m not going to eat it though.

Whipping the lines you use is a mark of someone who has pride in their work and tools.

This is a demonstration of what I was taught is called a temporary whipping. As opposed to a needle whipping which is more durable.
But this simple and easy whipping is usually all that is needed in most situations. And it’s certainly better than what most people do. Which is nothing.

I bought this inspection camera at Harbor Freight today. The price was 65.00.
Because I work on sailboat spars, I have had many occasions over the years where a tool like this would have been great to have.
Since the price is now more in my range, and got to thinking how fun it might be to look inside the hive, I bit the bullet.

It works pretty good for the FlowHive knockoff. But there isn't a hole big enough for it to enter the Apimaye.
I might correct that.

Meet Junior. All squirrel, part ham. Completely nutty, cat teasing, territorial mother with an insatiable appetite for nuts.
She seems to like this nut too.

My friend Stefano stopped by the shop treated us to a song.
Without even bothering to warm up.

I’m not envious. Really.

Making mistakes and learning in the process.

Two cups of room temp water boils in 2 min 30 sec. Not too shabby.

So, In my efforts to become more efficient, I purchased this Isiler Induction Cook-top from Amazon. The price was under 40 dollars. I was hoping it would work with my Harbor Freight inverter, however it does not. It just buzzes when I plug it in. Probably because my inverter is not a pure sine wave inverter. Whatever the hell that means.
Still, it should run on my generator and hopefully I can save a few pennies in the meanwhile by using it in place of my regular electric stove as much as possible.

My thoughts on internet censorship and authoritarian asshats

Funny the blades hardly look like they are moving in the video but it was really screaming today.
Seems to be a bit of vibration in the system.

After a miserable week without electricity after hurricane Irma last summer and losing a bunch of food in the fridge. I decided to not let that happen again. So, I purchased a 7500 watt generator from Central Georgia Generator, (https://centralgagenerator.com/), and after numerous trials and errors, I got it working with a 10 HP Yanmar, single cylinder engine that I had been storing for years. It's pretty loud, but I found an old freezer from a hospital at a scrap yard and used it for an enclosure. With the doors closed, it's not too bad but the heat buildup is still a problem that I'm working on.

I am a 62-year-old anarchist. One of my biggest regrets in life is that it took me over five decades to realize that I was, in fact, an anarchist.

If bitchute had a channel category called freedom and liberty, I probably would have chosen that.

One of the greatest joys in my life is finding ways to repurpose things that other people throw away.
I constantly strive to find ways of becoming more efficient, and perhaps someday, self-sufficient.

I am a lifelong sailor who has made voyages from California to Florida, across the Atlantic ocean and countless shorter trips.
So I know that the flat earth fantasy is just that. The stars told me.

These days I am passionate about gardening, composting and living in balance with nature.

I’ve been playing guitar since my teenage days but only in the last couple of years have I begun taking it seriously enough to feel as if I’m actually progressing.

I know a little bit about a lot of things but the only thing I am absolutely certain of is that I have a lot more to learn.
