Dog Snot Diaries

I write, you whine….

Saturday night I was out on the bike (it got down to 25 F at the end, but it was clear. Big day Sunday. We built a ton of hive frames and boiled the last of the sap down. We ended up with over a gallon. MUCH better than I thought we’d do with so few buckets and starting so late. Next year is going to be much better, now that I have a plan and some experience.

Then I looked at the weather. So much for the rest of my outside projects. SNOW! So there it ends. Hopefully next weekend is better. I have a trip planned that will leave me way behind the 8 ball if I don’t get shit done early.

This week’s agenda…

It’s going to be a busy week. The To Do List:
-assemble bee hive frames
-paint the new hive
-treat the wood line around the top few acres for ticks, including tick tubes
-till, fertilize, and de-sod the garden and extension
-boil the last of the sap
-store maple equipment

If I can get through that I’ll be happy. I still need to build chicken tractors, install a ton of fencing, build nesting boxes, scratch and lay grass seed, change the hydraulic fluid and oil in the tractor, and start seedlings in the next 30 days. I’m running out of time.

Spring is here!

It’s finally spring! The chickens are finally getting out into the yard. We’re boiling maple sap as fast as we can. The work load has dramatically increased.

We have big plans for the homestead this year. We’re adding a large garden, bee hives, and clearing land. We’re hoping to do two runs of broilers this year, 20 birds each. We’re going to add laying hens and maybe a few turkeys for fall.

Living in the sticks is a never ending work cycle, but raising and eating your own HEALTHY food is worth the effort.

Election season

I’m not going to lie. This certainly makes me wish I could start blogging again.

What’s that, you say?

Jump out of a B-17 this week? I think I shall.

Why blog when I can Facebook.

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. What’s been taking up my time? Work. Shooting. Skydiving. Home Brewing. Gym. The list is endless. When the hell did I get so many hobbies?

In a sick way, I miss blogging. I wonder what happened to all my stalking, death threat delivering, nutcase stalkers? Those were the days. I was always amazed at how seriously idiots take the internet.

So let’s play catch up. My lab is now 3 years old. I only went on one skydiving vacation this year. I’ve purchased several new firearms, another 34′ camper, and a helmet cam. I’m sure I missed something there.

My chimney blew off.

Then part of my roof blew off. Having a house over 100 years old is pretty slick, but requires constant repair.

I just bottled a batch of Amber Ale, and I have a batch of Imperial Pale Ale in primary.

I hit 30 countries in 2 days on 20 meters last month.

So that’s about it. Guns, beer, travel, and falling from the sky. Who could ask for more? Here’s hoping 2010 is as great to me as 2009 was.

Glenn is right

I haven’t been writing. I just can’t seem to get motivated when I have the time. Every minute I’m not working, I’m either jumping out of planes or hunting. I jumped all day yesterday, doing relative work.

Michelle “The Racist” Obama is pissing me off. I’ll work up something on her shortly. She’s a fucking tool bag.

I think this is why we haven’t heard from Jonathan in awhile…

There are just too many great quotes here not to post them.

“Was I speeding?”

“My wife said if I didn’t go to the store and get her a beer, she was gonna stab me in the face.”

“How long have you been on the lawnmower? About 2 weeks, my truck is broke.”

“I know mah rights! I know mah rights!”

“Is it illegal to cut grass?!?”

“What the hell? Mah wife’s gonna kick your ass!” – Watch more free videos
