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.

Thursday Emergency Poat

Remember, saying that God created the universe is a sign that you are stupid, but believing that the universe is a giant hologram is SCIENCE!

MMM 333: Summer wanes

It’s still pretty darned hot here, but the nights are getting cooler.  Make the most of what remains if you’re due for snow in a few months.

She looks good in snow.

MMM 330: Nobody died

We did a full 48 hours without mom this weekend, and it went as well as could be expected.  I was exhausted afterward and just barely made it out of bed this morning, though.  Should be a fun week on the job.

It took 45 minutes to get her hair to look right.  Just speculating.

MMM328: heat wave again

Been in the low to mid 90s for about a week, hot enough that I’m afraid to run the lawnmower and haven’t even wanted to go outside to do anything, even though it’s been sunny.  Did about 5 hours in the lake swimming with the family on Saturday, and that about wrecked me for Sunday.  Did manage to cut down a small cherry tree on Friday that was way too close to the house.  Debating whether the apple tree needs the same treatment.  What kind of moron puts an apple tree 5′ from a foundation wall?

MMM 322: Hot wire

So the solar box we’d initially bought to power the horse fence lasted approximately one day installed, then stopped delivering the requisite zap. So yesterday I dug a 60′ trench, buried the cable, and now our new fence is on-grid and the solar box is hopefully going back to the factory for a stern talking-to.  Fortunately (?), all four equines are still with us.  Still lots and lots of unpacking to do, but I’ve got Thursday and Friday off this week as a gap between contracts.  Should be plenty of time.

High-waisted.
