If a barnyard chicken grew to the size of an ostrich I’d be scared to death of it. For sure keep the kids away from it.

In the last 300 days, I'd guesstimate I've gone to the grocery store more than 250 times (I shop daily after work and also on the weekends).  I just buy a couple of items at a time.  Fresh fruit, and beer mainly, lol.



So it is just not me...funny how bananas keep better than beer :)

Rob, it doesn't sound very permie, does it? I believe there are threads about sealing ponds here in the forums, but I'm guessing it would be for dug, mud bottom ponds. I do know pigs can be used to seal mud, but I don't know exactly how.



The little pond at the end of the herb garden spiral from Bill Mollison’s book was not that big, maybe 25 gallons, 3 feet in diameter.  I had a good chuckle thinking about trying to train a pig do use its front two legs to just jump up and down in it to try to seal the bottom.

I found the secret of gas engine tools is to drain the gas when you finish using it, even if you plan on using it again tomorrow, then start it up and run it till it quits. Then try to start it a couple more times. Then put it away.  I’ve had a cheap Poulan chainsaw I’ve had for 30 years and I’ve never had a problem starting it. It actually has the same spark plug all those years I’ve never changed it and I’ve used that saw a bunch.

I fixed the concrete birdbath a couple years ago with the black flex seal paint and it has held up quite well.  Not to sure how permie “flex seal” is but worked.  I built a Bill Mollison herb garden (from his permaculture book) for my mom probably 30 years ago with the small pond at the bottom of the spiral but I never could get it to hold water. Too bad they didn’t have flex seal back then.

That was the one with the light wet batter and sprayed with olive oil. It’s just a pain to keep the petals separated while it’s cooking.  You’re cooking time will vary depending on the size and type of onion.  Good thing is it didn’t seem like you could over cook it.

The only electric chainsaw I’ve used was at Wheaton lab during a PDC.  We were cutting down a large tree as many had not felled a tree before.  I agree with the earlier post that they can be dangerous because they kick off when they feel they are being stressed or over heated or whatever.  Problem is that was at the critical time during the cut when we needed more power.  It made me extremely nervous during the final minutes of the cut when it kept kicking off and I never had that feeling using a gas saw.
