You never know what you’re going to run into on any project. I had a mechanic friend who once told me that every thirty-minute job is just one stuck bolt away from a three-day ordeal. When Travis and I were tearing out the extra room in the barn on Monday, we ran into something we […]

Years ago I spent a terrible winter living in Minnesota, and I realized that you have to give a lot of credit to the Swedes and Norwegians who settled that wild country back in the old days. These are people who got on wooden ships and used crude navigation tools to get across a treacherous […]

Somebody asked me how our electrical problem has been doing. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, and I hope I don’t jinx myself by saying this, but so far, so good. It hasn’t happened again since I smacked the inverter with a big heavy pair of vise grips the other day. I guess there’s something to […]
