    Downsizing.

    You really are going all out, aren't you? All these details.... superb!

    I just HAD to get out!

    I was getting hungry by now and decided to have lunch at my "happy place", the one I discovered last autumn. It was quite nearby. On the spot I started to gather firewood and twigs plus a larger piece of birch bark from a rotten stump. That bark was not really dry, but that usually is no issue...

    I just HAD to get out!

    The walls were closing in on me! Physical ailments have been troubling me for way to long, the covid-19 madness and "social distancing" are getting on my nerves and the annual spring depression is kicking in for real. I actually skipped classes today! After having taken the first English lesson...

    The scent of nostalgia

    ahhh so many! The scent of pelargonium immediately propels me into my grandma's glasshouse, where I as a very young lad, spent many a happy hour, sitting in a box/bench, filled with toys and old stuff. I can still hear the rain patter of the reinforced glass roofpanes. Oldfashioned cooking or a...

    The Homestead month by month

    Oh my... Your English is understandable even for us non-Brits! Just subscribed to your channel. I so do love English gardens, cottage gardens or old fashioned farmer's gardens in particular. I am trying to create something similar in terms of lushness and colourfulness here on the patches that...

    Mylar bagging - simple waterproof, air tight packaging

    I am with you when it comes to mylar, however the issue I have with it, is that I do not know if the food contained is still useable or if it has gone bad without opening the package. I do add oxygenabsorbers as well.

    The Homestead month by month

    The wear on some key elements (both shoulders, both elbows and right wrist) of my body turned out to be much more severe than I had thought.... or cared to admit. Resulting in a one year sick leave (am in the final stages of recovery), forced retirement from the job I had on a dairy farm (loved...

    The Homestead month by month

    Good to see you're still going. I pretty much have to restart, due to being unable to do anything last year.

    Modellers Corner

    Holy smokes, Gary! You're on a roll, there. Love the work! A lot of wargaming and other interesting subjects from the others as well. Love it! I used to do a lot of military in 1/35, but have been venturing out into larger scales and other subjects. Here's some of my work: 1/20...

    Blogs and blogging

    As for me my blog is pretty much dead in the water after having been active for 6-7 years. It was great fun doing it, if only for myself, but you can only write so much, before you start repeating yourself. Besides life has a funny way of forcing some twists and turns upon you. Response was...

    Day Out A different trip - geology lessons

    The other day we had a geology field trip, visiting Europe's largest meteor impact crater; the Siljansringen. Here, about 370 million years ago, a app. 5km large asteroid smashed into the Earth, creating a large impact crater, about 52km in diameter, in the middle of current day Sweden. The lake...

    Day Out Clearing the college-cobwebs from my brain - now with pictures!

    Recently I have gone back to school. Being only 16 months away from the big "Five-Oh" this isn't an easy task, especially considering that it was 30 years ago, since I left the schoolbenches. So I had to go out, clear my head after the first weeks of classrooms, lectures and severe social...

    Hi folks, it's been a while.

    Thanks gents. A forum always is moving, true. People come, people go. But a forum needs guidance as well in order to attract and preferably keep those with the right interest.

    Armchair Bushcraft

    Much of it is permanent or with a high probability of reoccurring. So I must adjust my ways. The homesteading-bit I will not give up, but I must find ways to lessen the burden to the body. The farmjob is over.

    Armchair Bushcraft

    That was one of the main reasons I left the forum. That and a lot of, in my eyes, nonsensical chatter, nowhere near related to the main idea of the forum. Or what it claims to be.
