    Prostate warning , for those I have not reached yet.

    For those of you who have read my warnings before , sorry , but I think it important enough to bear repeating. Very near Halloween of 2012 I got the news that I was stage 4 with metastasis (my cancer was opening branch offices). What brought me to the hospital was complete urinary shutdown...

    Blade set question

    Hello gentlemen. I would like to pick the brains of the illuminati here. Since I will be using an extremely thin grade of plywood (Mandarin orange crate salvage) to cut 1\72 scale and 1/48 scale wartime aircraft models , I was wondering if removing a bit of the set on my blades might give me a...

    Isn't it cute?

    Today I feel that I can finally post on scrolling - scroll saws with other than drop-jawed praise of others work. I have taken my first step into the world of scrolling, a baby step , but a step none the less. For the princely sum of 25 Canuck bucks I got my own baby scroll saw. At a mere 13...

The usually serious business of government gets serious treatment here. Quite dignified as a rule. The dates...

    The lengths we go to for addictions

    This morning I noticed my wife and I were nearly out of tobacco. The horrid habit is expensive in Canada at more or less 10 Canuck bucks per package , so I stuff my own tubes (being as I am a cheap old codger). Now , we have native folk on the reserves here that pay no tax on tobacco and so can...
