Bear

By | July 9, 2019

Bear on my front porch this morning. Yes, you’re supposed to take your bird feeders in during the spring so as not to attract bears coming out of hibernation. We’ve actually only had ours out for the last month or so. Our reaction to the bear coming onto our porch today was “Hey, dammit, it’s JULY. Get lost.… Read More »

Game Camera: May 2019

By | May 29, 2019

We’ve had a game camera for a year and a half now and it’s been intermittently recording the back yard for about a year. I say “intermittently” because I turned it off this past December (or thereabouts) and only turned it back on again at the beginning of May. Last year we got a nice video of a… Read More »

Yeah, we got a … bit of snow. This isn’t that unusual for Vermont, but still. We’re really ready for warmer weather.

Springtime in Vermont, ladies and gentlemen. (We’re looking at a possible six to twelve inches today, with likely high winds and power outages. Fortunately, the whole house is backed up by a pair of Tesla Powerwall 2 batteries.)

I got to exercise my status as member of the Richmond, Vermont “Board of Civil Authority” and help run Town Meeting! Next stop, THE WORLD! Okay, I guess I should back up… Read More »

Car Wash Psychedelia

By | March 17, 2019

You have to take your hat off to the American entrepreneurial spirit. Posed the question, “how can we make more money running a car wash?” America has answered “Appeal to the stoners”. I give you the Eco Car Wash of Williston, Vermont: This particular car wash is the first in our area to offer a subscription-based model, where for… Read More »

Another Year, Another Marauding Antediluvian Saurian Bearing Angiosperms

By | February 14, 2019

I think Champ is really obsessed with me. He came by my office for the second year in a row to wish me Happy Valentine’s Day! Doesn’t he look bigger than last year? The handler who brought him in, said he’d been eating a lot of hot dogs. I dunno, I heard he’s been eating a lot of… Read More »

Snoo

By | November 27, 2018

Carole and I live in northern Vermont, in a little town called Richmond. Every year we wonder if any given snowfall will be “the” snowfall, the one that covers our grass until spring. Some years it’s clear from the first eight-inch dumping. Other years we don’t really ever get “that” snow, as we have freezes and thaws off… Read More »
