I've saved some cow bones so I can try to make flutes like these:



I attempted one from a goat bone two weeks but couldn't get it to whistle.

I also am going to use portions of them for guitar nuts and saddles. I know I can make guitars.

When I was a teenager, I used a big leg bone from a dog to make the handle of a knife. The blade was made from a ground-down file, then I carved the handle to fit and epoxied it together. It looked decent, though it wasn't a work of fine art.

Plant nursery, hands down.

I made about $1000 per month (averaged through the year - nothing was happening in winter, lots in the spring and fall) in about 1/10 acre of nursery space. Hit two farmer's markets a week and moved a lot of plants. Find a good niche. Mine was perennial vegetables, rare edibles, and fruit trees.

I went on a hike Sunday afternoon and found a strange plant. I live in Central America. Anyone know what this thing is? The tree is short and almost looks like Asimina to me, but we're way outside that range. I couldn't find any seeds. Fruit bats or rats must have eaten them with the pulp.

The yameoke was Christi's idea. She's a total ham - we had a blast.

Thank you. It was a joke - her real name is Christi Perry.
