The snowball that is my train of thought is all over the place this week, and for some reason I keep starting off by talking about the weather…(more…)
This week inadvertently became all about working with my hands. From fixing up my late father-in-law’s truck, to working in the garden, to my many years of cooking, and even to some degree podcast editing, I come to realize that I really just like working with my hands.

I’m back from my unplanned annual holiday break and I’m going to try to get back into the old swing of things. More gardening stories, more rants, new movie/ TV/ podcast recommendations, and the return of BS From The News and the Jackass of the Week.
This week we started the daunting task of deep cleaning our entire house. Can you tell I’m excited? In the news, I’ve got a very unlucky fisherman, and a brand new vodka from a rather unusual source. Plus, a full update on our fall/winter garden.
This week is a weird one. I’m not gonna lie. After some health talk, I get into our recent TV habits, including the new Hulu series “Only Murders In The Building.” I give a brief garden update, and a heads up on our upcoming fall camping trip. Then the news takes an unexpected turn into the world of genital manipulation and I just can’t seem to escape. Not even when I get into how Skrillex’s music can repel mosquitos. Did I mention it got weird? I’m pretty sure I mentioned it got weird…
Another one of my boys knocked out a couple of his teeth. At least they were baby teeth this time.
My garden is pretty empty other than a mantis that I relocated to my strawberry patch.
And I give you a couple really simple recipes for caramel iced coffee, and my grilled chicken alfredo. (Give me some time and I’ll try to get them written down somewhere.)
This week I have a, longer than planned, garden update, a mini rant about “autism” and “ADHD” being umbrella terms, and a landscaping whoopsie that is a result of my own ADHD tendencies.
Plus, I pontificate on the lurking thoughts about quitting this show in order to start any number of other podcast ideas. And in an impromptu podcast recommendation, I briefly discuss “Succotash: The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast.”

I’m a little lower energy this week. Just a bit tired so I keep things short for once. But “holy mashed potatoes Batman!” I actually have a general theme this week. It’s all about the little things that have dominated my life this week. Starting with flowers on my pumpkins and watermelons going into my very first successfully grown potatoes, and ending with our new kitten.
A little show full of little things
While I don’t usually like to appear on camera in general, I recently decided to film a little video of myself working in my garden. In short, my dog dug up one of my garden beds shortly after I had planted seeds for cantaloupe and watermelon. So, I had to clean up the bed and replant the seeds. Spoilers: my phone overheated and died mid video, so I had to do a follow-up and was unable to show myself actually planting the seeds.
It’s my first time really trying to make a video for my Youtube channel so I’m totally out of my element doing it, but it was fun. If you have any other ideas of other stuff you’d like me to make videos of, let me know in all the standard locations.
After a bit of a giggle fit, bitching about my sore legs, and some philosophizing over the relationship dynamic between children- their teachers- and their parents, I get into our latest endeavor with Charlie, martial arts. Then, an update on the garden as we try to figure out how we’re going to plant our spring vegetables when half of our winter crops still aren’t ready to harvest. And I reach out for your questions for a potential episode 200 Livestream Q&A.(more…)
