I recently installed the Feedburner/Feedcounter to this blog. I got so excited the other day when I saw I had a subscriber. Now it’s back to 0. As much as I profess to keeping this going for myself, I must admit it made me a little sad. I fully intend to keep moving forward with this, but I am curious…how many of you read this?

The Botanic Collection

The Botanic collection created by Bolon – a environmental flooring company is a revolutionary breakthrough, weaving vinyl flooring with environmental care. Botanic contains a new plasticizer which, in turn, is based on renewable raw materials originating from plant extracts.

The visual concept around Botanic, reflects nature’s variety of organic architecture and wealth of detail.

Sadly, I didn’t get any photos of Gina’s stuff. I’m not sure how that happened. 🙁

Magically Delicious!

While my father was in the hospital our daily mantra was, “Rainbows & Unicorns”. Our wonderful friend Stephanie (of vaseline bowl fame) sent us this image to get us through the day.

I about fell out of my chair when another friend posted this earlier today:

Pâté is passé. Unicorn – the new white meat.

Unhappy Hipsters

It’s lonely in the modern world…


‘And one day, a ladder appeared. Julien climbed with guarded optimism; could this be the way out for which he’d been searching all these weeks?’

Double Dating

Two pair of Hooded Merganser ducks have landed in the pond. I don’t know if they’re just passing through or if they’re hanging for a bit. I’m trying to remember if we had them last year, but it was so chaotic during the move and colder months here.

I can’t get a good photo of them right now, but here is a photo of the male that I pulled from good ‘ole Google.

I am going to miss the amazing wildlife around this place when we move soon.

Wild Turkeys

One of the many wonderful things about the property we rent is that we have wild turkeys. On several occasions we have seen them come up to the cars in front of the house. This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago. The cats were out at the time.


Junior, who is our beloved grumpy old cat with no teeth, decided to walk out for a closer look. The turkeys were not impressed.

BiPolar Tesla Coil

This is one of my favorite coils that Michael has built. He started on a series last year that is inspired by a vintage aesthetic, something that people would want to keep on display. This one was finished just before we moved. I hope he starts to build these again.

The porthole in front of the spark gap is a beautiful green glass that came from a cache from my mother. She started making stained glass about 20 years ago but with her back/neck/wrist problems it became too difficult for her to manage. Some of her glass supplies came from the Blenko glass factory. My brother drove up to the factory to purchase it for her.
