Since moving out to live on the homestead, I've learned how to build a lot of things. But, this is the first time I ever built my own 35mm film, twin lens reflex (a.k.a. TLR) camera from a bunch of plastic parts. This was a DIY camera kit, from Fotodiox, which Janice gave me as a Christmas gift this past holiday.
January 11, 2017I'm going into my third year raising chickens, and I can say, without a doubt, that these remarkable animals are more intelligent than we are typically lead to believe. I spend a lot of time with my flock and it amazed me to witness the unique personalities and mannerisms each of my birds possessed. So, it was not a surprise to me to read this study and it's conclusions.
December 9, 2016I recently heard about California's new regulations on methane produced by dairy cows (related articles here ). But, really, can this really be enough to reduce carbon emissions to really make a difference? I think there's a simpler solution, which doesn't involve the government nor requires any regulations or tax burdens of any kind. People just need to exercise some discipline and self control and just make the bulk of their meals from locally produced foods.
