Don't Derail Your Quit!

Posted by JonesCarpeDiem Feb 25, 2021

This is one video in a channel on youtube.

Two guys

A camera

A drone

Easygoing narration and relaxing music.

New Mexico

 

The screenshots below are from

"backpacking the Pecos Wilderness episode 4 of 5"

This is a baby bighorn sheep.

And, one cigarette will lead you straight back to smoking.

 

5 guys and a scout.

2 to push. 3 to pull.

Big wheel cart.

Double sheets of plywood to make those stairs into a ramp.

And the scout at the top of the picture wondering if the hole they dug is big enough.

A Freezerectomy

Posted by JonesCarpeDiem Feb 9, 2021

When the ice grows round the freezer

And nothing can be moved

you likely have some freezer burn

There's one thing left to do

 

Still in pajamas?

With slippers on your feet?

You better change now

Cause things can get gnarly

And have some coffee,

before we start the job

If there's a problem

We can call doctor Bob

 

Get out a hammer

And grab a chisel too

or a stiff putty knife

and if you've got one,

bring along your wife

 

Some boiling water 

might need to melt things free

We'll have a party,

A freezerectomy

      I've been trying to not pick the oranges until I know they're ripe because they are too acidic for my stomach to handle. Yesterday I found one that was going rotten. I decided if they give when you press with the tips of your fingers, they aren't going to get much better and picked the rotten one and two others.  I tried to prepare the overripe one but ended up tossing it.

#2. The end of the beginning

The BIG one

Wonder how many times the photographer had to shoot to capture this moment.  Probably dozens.

If you like photography--or just a window into the past since photography was invented--you gotta' check out the Shorpy site (Shorpy Old Photos | Photo Sharing | Framed Prints ).  Greatest photographic collection ever to capture the American Experience from the 1850s to 1960 IMHO.  Love the clarity.

This is gorgeous

 

      I watched them demolish a three story hotel two summers ago to build a new swim park on that block in Prince George, B.C.

      I think that covid-19 must have delayed the project from spring into the last week in August.

      You can see where it started in this time lapse video.

It's something I look at a couple times a day to see their progress.

Perfect view to watch something being built from the ground up.

They started erecting the structure this past week. 2 days with a 90 foot crane to erect what you see there.

      I find live streaming keeps me out of mental blockades during these lockdowns because I see progress.

      I also love watching the trains go through Flagstaff every 10-15 minutes day and night. You are only about 30 feet away from the trains looking down. There is sound and there are 2 cameras

      No I don't watch them day and night but, I check in for the Amtrak before bed if it's semi on time

I love the Dunrovin' ranch cam in Montana. (It's down right now)

And the Del Mar Beach North Cam or Dog Cam

The North Beach cam has the sound of the waves and the dogs barking and runing on the beach  but it's down right now

All free. Keeps your mind alive.

Great smoking distractions
