Oh, let the rain come down Let the wind blow through me I’m living in an empty room With all the windows smashed And I’ve got so little left to lose That it feels just like I’m walking on broken glass Wow – just 2 1/2 months left until this year, this crazy messed up year full of heartbreak and…

Meat curing in all its glamour! Yes you are looking at a slab of curing pork belly, a couple weeks into the process, hanging from two meat hooks in one of our basement bedroom closets. No bugs, nice and cool, and perfect humidity. Works for us! A bit of venting and a bit of cool stuff all mixed in together…

Amen, Bill! I was looking for a non-hospital-based primary care doc not long ago and found one near my home that was recommended. Then I found out they charge you a $100-150 “membership fee” per year (not something insurance covers) just for the privilege of seeing their staff – even though we all have copays and deductibles and shit already…

Alrighty folks it’s in the 60s and raining here, like Mother Earth looked at the calendar and went “okay people you wanted fall, here you go!” And with that, the focus slowly turns indoors and thinking about the shorter days and longer nights that are creeping in slowly but surely. Not sure about you but I cannot WAIT to get…

Fall is coming! Air conditioner has been taken out of our bedroom window! It’s cool in the morning! By next week I’ll be able to wear sweats in the morning instead of “as little as possible” when I go out to let the ducks free range! We can use the stove for long periods of time while not sweating like…

Alright, don’t say you weren’t warned: it’s time to vent as some serious shit going on that people need to know about if they don’t already…and hey, it’s been one helluva week in my world and the world at large…so here goes. #45 complains about pulling down statues of racist pigs, yet wants to reduce and/or eliminate many of our…

OK folks, so tomorrow is Monday the 21st and know what that means? It means I will no longer see half of the nightly newscast being spent on where to get eclipse glasses, how many spent 15 hours in traffic to get to the Armpit of Oregon to watch what they can see right here in town. Sorry y’all but…

Last week of July, whoa! Next week, right on schedule, the reason I hate August will be here. 102 degree forecast for Wednesday. Fuckity fuck fuck.  I detest the heat and with just the bedroom A/C it’s not going to be great. So because of that, this is a special Grumpy Edition of Eco-licious…with a nice happy musical treat at…

July is progressing nicely at least in the weather department – no heat wave that’s made me cover the tomatoes or peppers, and a big bowl of marionberries and blackberries (thornless on the latter – very, very cool I gotta say)? Gotta stretch sometimes to find the positives, but they’re there… Husband is still harvesting honey (16 lbs so far!!),…

My girl looking up at me as she lays at the end of our bed on the floor.  Whenever I’m feeling crappy she does this, it’s so sweet. This week has been gorgeous weather – high 70’s, low 80s, perfect for the garden. I personally prefer low 70’s but as long as the house stays cool I’m happy. This year…
