MMM Throwback: Year 1, week 4

Finding old rocks and writing a post worth reading takes time, and I had to do some emergency weeding as I discovered some ugly plants were shorting out the hotwire on the fences.  So, here’s the content originally in week 4 of MMM.  I deleted the first year or so of MMM images from wordpress, so they aren’t duplicated on the server.

Tasteful monochrome.

MMM 408: Drombeg Stone Circle

Also known as the Druid’s Altar, this circle of moderately large stones (quarried nearby, so it was a lot of work but was not a particularly difficult undertaking) was assembled and used between 1100 and 800 BC on the southern tip of Ireland, likely by genuine druids.  As an Irish descendant, it is somewhat spooky to look at this and think that ancestors may have used this site, and possibly for some very unsavory things.

At Your Meme’s House

This week’s song is dedicated to Hotspur, who probably heard the original on the radio.

MMM 381: Summer’s End

I knew  girl named Summer in high school.  She had a nice end.  I’ve got some work to do before the snow falls, so the break in the heat is welcome, but winter always brings difficulties.  Yes I know summer doesn’t really end for another 3 weeks or so with the Autumnal Equinox.  I don’t celebrate commie holidays, so I needed another theme.  I choose to celebrate Labor Day most years by working as hard as I can at something for which I won’t be paid, as a remembrance of what communism really is.

The toe of a dromedary.

MMM 373: A full ton of grass clippings

So if you ever let parts of your lawn “go” in the hopes of making hay out of it, you’ll get some surprises.  You may find that some of it is actually rye and timothy, which will grow tall and straight and will become hay readily, but you’ll likely also find that quite a bit of it… doesn’t.  You’ll see some grass that has thin, whispy blades that fall down, twist into cowlicks, and generally get matted like a long-haired cat with bad grooming habits.  If you subsequently try to mow that, you’ll learn that there’s a limited amount of torque your mower is actually capable of exerting, and you’ll get to do a few restarts, assuming you can even clear the deck and let the blade spin again.

MMM 373

Good morning all.  I hope you’re all well.  I have to figure out some way to block the 3rd season of my daughter’s show where they reveal that one of the characters has “two dads”.  It’s not overdone or flashy about this, but it’s a show about art for pre-schoolers.  Why does it need this aberration?  Weimar America, folks.  Part of why I made this series all about mushrooms for a while was a sense that in some small way I was part of the problem, effectively rebroadcasting porn in a sense.  I do find a genuine sort of inspiration (and no small amount of motivational shame) in looking at fit women, but it’d be a lie to say that’s all I’m looking at here.

Tidy room, prolly a hotel.

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.
