Contrary to what one would think, a few screws in the axehole will tighten 'er up.
Should I moderate this or put it in some sort of "Great CPS Quotes" thread?
There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

Ditch that fiberglass handle for a hickory haft as it should be.

Technically, the 'axehole' is the 'eye.' So first remove the hickory haft from your own eye, so you can see clearly to stick it in somebody else's axehole.

Going to see the eye doctor tomorrow. I'll pick up a can of axehole grease on my way home to make installation into the axehole easier.

The continuing classical guitar saga

I put flats on it. They were interesting but sounded not like what I anticipated. So, tonight I put on some carbon Savarez hard tension at the recommendation from the Strings By Mail guy.

They sound great! But carbon trebles have a smaller diameter than nylon so they have a slight wang. And overall the tension is much higher. So I need a new saddle to bring the action down.

*sigh* classical guitars are so temperamental. Kind of like their owners.

I am working with my daughter to build a rabbit hutch based on an article in Mother Earth News from 2017. To say the materials list is lacking would be like saying American Politics is somewhat off right now. I think AOC'S thought process is more coherent than these instructions.

I bought a computer desk with shelves and an office chair for sixty bucks from a consignment store today. I have to move a deer mount and cabinet to put it where I want. Not only will there be a computer and printer there but also my my HAM radio station once I upgrade my license. It will be cool. So far all I have is a cheap handheld radio and a scanner so it will look kind of sparse. Room to grow though.

In 1968 my brother enlisted me into a kind of fight club thing for the elementary school. We had a sort of marked out ring in a field just off school property.

I was five, he was nine.

I enjoy smoking in cold weather, but not when it's too cold, and the older I get it seems that the temp for too cold rises a bit.
