Chainsaw Body Block


Turns out you can stop a running chainsaw with your leg… However, it does leave a mark and I don’t recommend it. In the manual it clearly states that you should not stop the running saw with body parts and they are right!

When I Was Five…

Grippy Toes

When I was five years old my mother took me to see the doctor for an annual checkup. The doctor sat me up on the examining table, had me put my hands palms down on my knees and told me to, “Wiggle your toes.

I thought this was a bit odd as I had my shoes on and I didn’t think he could see my toes but I played along, wiggling my toes for him.

Again he said, “Wiggle your toes.

I replied back, “I did.” as I wiggled them again. I wondered what sort of nonsense this was but I was still playing along with his silly game.

No, you didn’t.” He said to me.

Giving him a puzzled look I asked, “Why do you think I didn’t wiggle my toes?

He then told me, “When you wiggle your toes your fingers will move.

Of all the nonsense, I thought to myself. But to him I said, “No, that is not true. I wiggled my toes.” I wiggled them again for emphasis. My fingers continued to stay still. I don’t like incorrectness and he was being strange.

He said, “Your fingers will move when you wiggle your toes. It’s a reflex.

Okaayyy… I thought to myself. I’ll play your game. So I wiggled my fingers for him. As you may be guessing by now, I did not bother wiggling my toes that time. The doctor was happy and we moved on. Such silly people…

Snowt Funny!

Mother Nature has a funny sense of humor. We all politely laugh. There isn’t much else to do. It could be worse…

Update 20210501: Since this snow storm we have had four more, one of which was 4″ and the others just an inch or so. Doing spring cleaning on the cottage today so we had another fire in the woodstove. Might be the last of the season. At this point the snow is all gone, even the drifts and the cap on the mountain.

Outdoors: 25°F/28°F 4″ Snow

Year Old Porchetta

Year Old Porchetta Pork Roast

I found a porchetta pork roast which had dropped to the bottom of one of the freezers down in the salt pork box. We cooked it up and it was delicious.
