Yard Restored! Finally! (Yurt Day6)


What a day of heavy lifting and hard labor! Some of these decking were nailed in so securely I needed to use a cinder block as a sledge hammer! The other two were screwed together with what looks like loose nuts and bolts from other projects as so few of them were the same. I would need an entire set of different drill bits to get through the ones that wanted to come loose. Everything from tapcons meant for concrete, to deckmate, to drywall screws rusted away and sank in only a couple inches apart from each other. No thanks! Perhaps the sawzall will help me chop this thing up - but it's done & out of the way now, thankfully... Tomorrow should be the final day so perhaps then I will be able to get back to finishing my tinyhouse - lol...

    1. PLZ RIGHT CLICK TO OPEN IN NEW WINDOW... Interesting store. I can't believe there's no essential oils. I searched for tea tree and saw nothing. I also find it odd that all prices - including the specials - are at $119.99 across the board. Either way after clicking on the link for the blog I found some decent reading material. If you could you please edit to make the link open in a new window I will keep your ad as a comment...

Broke out the 20+ year old Ryobi sawzall to finish the large limbs then cleaned up by grabbing some of the thatch to complete my firewood setup.

Nature Advances as Humans Cope...

Quite an interesting story I read today from "Gulf Today (Beta)" titled "Nature advances as humans retreat". I found the majority of what Writer/Editor/Consultant, Meena Janardhan, posited a breath of fresh air but I do hold view points that I feel are equally compelling. Firstly, I really enjoyed hearing about herds of spotted deer, or swamp deer, near Rajaji National park in Haridwar, Dehradun, and Pauri Garhwal districts in Uttarakhand. However, while more people stay inside it only makes sense the animals are less hindered and less likely to get spooked allowing them to investigate areas people typically bustled around all day. While this is good and nice to see I do not believe this is anything more than the way nature typically reacts. The same could easily go the other way around where humans may decide to either stand their ground or allow use of land to others if those others are bears, snakes, or tigers. It was very good learning that the rare sights of…

One of Many Global Warming & Climate Change Debates (it's hot outside today...)

Current climate theories rely upon metrics already known to our planet without explaining the changes to others happening simultaneously and without taking these new variables (or solar activity at all) into account.

Solar system temperature increase:
It is documented the sun projected more radiation this past 140 cycle (1878-2018 including the pause) than it had in the past 140 year cycle (1878-1738) matching the last mini-ice age and those that predate it.

The poles are getting warmer at a faster rate than the planet as a whole and the same is happening to Mars.

Neptune is now glowing with a charged atmosphere showing aurora and a ring.

Jupiter has several new storms moving.

Many other temperature related events are being observed and noted with causes under debate in planets and moons.

All of these are happening at the same time our planet is getting warmer at the poles in the same fashion as our closest celestial neighbor.

Periods of high solar activity bombard the solar system wit…
