MMM 371

Power outage yesterday helped us learn that the breaker in the house labeled “barn” might not be connected to, well, anything.  The barn appears to be wired to a breaker labeled “OUT” in the breaker box in the other basement.  Neat!

Big balls around this place.

Cabin Fever Reliever

We’re getting deep into this winter season.  Staring at the same 4 walls in the cabin and looking out the window and seeing an endless snowy landscape leads to desperation. I’d like to think that explains some of the bizarre behavior we’re seeing, like MAGA-noose-bleach attacks and lawmakers crafting real infanticide laws which are greeted by a yawn by the MSM while totally made up Handmaids are ZOMG coming in Drump’s Amerikkka seriously you guys! Yeah … it’s good to step back out of the twitterverse and view the real world in front of you. Not the one where you look at the obvious byproducts of our messed up society but the world you’ve created and aspire to. So much better not knowing who all the people who are famous for being famous are, isn’t it? This is the time of year where there’s lots of weird contests to deal with boredom as well as the start of garden and boating shows. I’ll leave you with a few examples of each. First, the snowmobile egg run for charity.
