The manly rooster…

Our chicks are getting bigger, this morning we heard the first crowing from the rooster. I’m sad it wasn’t the first squawks but I still thought the manly crow from this guy was entertaining.

Possibilities are now endless…

What poor fool hasn’t had the dream of owning a sawmill? I submit that anyone with a Y chromosome has at one time or another fantasized about owning their own sawmill. Well… Through a fortunate series of events I am now the proud owner of a Woodmizer LT10 sawmill. It’s older but nonetheless exciting, and its a lot quicker than my chainsaw mill.

Even Mrs. Birch gave it a try. This is with a rather dull blade. It cuts much quicker with a sharp blade on it.

New residents…
