I wanted to get a print of Pocket Park after you posted it and took one look at the price and noped out

It's super chill music though, put it on my spotify rotation

You talking about the reissue? I suppose it's a bit high, yeah, and with shipping factored in a such. But it's far better than what vintage copies are going for.

Always wanted a nice one, finally bit the bullet and got one the other week from a sale on Sidedeal.

I love mine. I think of something new to use it for once a month. Comes in super handy around the big meal-focused holidays as well. I wish mine was that color. Great purchase!

Iíll post when they arrive, but I have carbon-look vinyl overlays coming for the chrome. They were like $18. The dash has some carbon-look trim from the factory so it wonít be totally out of place. Iíve just been lazy on upgrading anything cosmetic on this car. I should get the windows tinted as well.

I don't know about sold 'by the pound', I'm guessing they mean counted by the pound. Those are '3lb' boxes that contain approximately 12000 bees plus 1 queen that has been marked. She's in a smaller box inside the main box that is plugged with candy. The time it takes to eat through the candy gives the queen a chance to get control of the hive.

I plan on setting the bees to work making me honey for fun and profit, but the box is the perfect size to shove through a doggy door.

Good luck.

I keep bees and some years they all make it through without a hitch, while some others a random freeze/thaw can introduce a ton of moisture into a hive and kill them. It seems like this year both of my hives overwintered well.

We are getting another colony this spring as payment for my goat buckís ďservicesĒ to a few pretty little does.

The expensive part isnít the bees themselves, itís continually buying boxes, frames, tools, bee suits, then eventually a centrifuge, etc. etc. We got lucky and two of the surgeons I know gave us most of the big equipment and even still we are nowhere near actually profiting from the honey so itís a good thing itís an enjoyable hobby on its own, and we use a ton of honey at home.

The profit was kind of a joke, I don't think I'll be ready for that scale at any time soon. I did get a bunch of stuff second hand so that offset the cost quite a bit. No centrifuge yet but I won't need one for a while. I do hope I can get enough honey to have some to try and ferment though, that would be a fun experiment.

I do a lot of CNC work, and I've been terminally curious about what these little guys can do. I've got a mess of projects that I want to make, as well as work on a post processor for it.

At $350, it's about the same price as my 3D printer, and it's so interesting to see what can be accomplished in this price point.

We got 1/4 cow. Itís hard to tell with all the ground beef making up the top layer, but thereís about 150lb of beef in here, along with 30lb of chicken breast and 50lb of whole chicken (8 birds).



The beef is grass-fed from a local farm and they have an Aussie butcher which is awesome because she knows the cuts the normal butchers donít do, in addition to the normal filets, sirloins, roasts etc.

This one specifically is essentially a Picanha, which nobody else around here does.



We also asked for the liver, heart and tongue because theyíre delicious. The other people that went in on beef must not have wanted theirs because we ended up with two of each. didnít think it would all fit...

Definitely get some dry PTFE lube like the Super Lube spray can version. The instructions call for it, and it's really the only thing I was missing.

They do only come with some engraving bits, so I've gotten a few router bits to let me do some actual work.

I don't know your experience level, but if you're brand new to CNC work, the bits that Inventables sell are competent and explain well what they're good for:

Lastly, I've seen some folks "cut" into aluminum and brass with these machines, but the results are bad and not the purpose for which one should buy these machines. Wood and plastics are certainly where I would stay for the well being off the machine and tooling.

Vacuum sealed is fine for 2-3 years, especially if youíre in a chest freezer that doesnít self-defrost.

Yeah itís all vacuum packed and the freezer doesnít do thaw cycles to defrost itself. It will last as long as we need it to and prevent us from buying meat at the grocery store. We do something like this every year; last year was our own pigs we had butchered.

Itís a lot of money but ends up being reasonably economical in the long run if you can stomach the initial expenditure.

Got a Stardew Valley shirt. I thought I would be slick and order the women's sizes for a more flattering fit and a brighter color. It's too short for me though. Now, if I was able to wear pants with a high waist or leggings, this would actually work fine, but I can't, because gender norms

lol, I'm gonna exchange it. It took like 2 weeks for them to send out this one though. Oh well, should have measured it and me more thoroughly.
