“Life has a way of setting things in order and leaving them be.” – Jean Anouilh

I have just uploaded a new guide to the Instructable website on a simple method to butchering rabbits.  It shows the process I have been using to butcher my rabbits and I am very happy with the results.   Kitty and I have been working hard these last few weeks on preparing the house for Read more about “Life has a way of setting things in order and leaving them be.” – Jean Anouilh[…]

We have a busy couple of days this weekend.  Firstly, with the coming of Spring, we spent Saturday cleaning out the garage and house of items we have realised we do not need.  As a consequence I took two large loads of garbage to the tip on Saturday, and another today (although the tip turned Read more about “The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.” – C.
